I will subscribe to HBO Max if they make a limited series about the events of the test integration email #1.

it's time to re-write my resume in man format.

Apple Macintosh 512K Enhanced analog board with original capacitors.

Waiting on 2 more replacement RIFA caps and then replacing all of them this week.

Brought the old 512k out of storage and powered it work. Was working well for about 30 minutes until the RIFA capacitor blew.

Replacement capacitor set showed up this week and 🤞 I replace them all properly and have it back up and running.

Has anyone used AWS Bottlerocket?

I think it only builds AMIs to run in EC2, but would like to try it out locally in QEMU as well.

Built amfora from source for FreeBSD 13 on a RPI yesterday, and it feels good :freebsd: :raspberrypi:

[ecliptik@tael ~]$ file `which amfora`
/usr/local/bin/amfora: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, ARM aarch64, version 1 (FreeBSD), statically linked, Go BuildID=Cqg3xUXbdcul076RVCl1/BQ7PVNv20RANu4WJFKYc/95fPB8q0MBpfrppv9mUP/BrrKprunXEIhbi5LHmHO, stripped

I have a nice multi-monitor, external keyboard and trackball desk setup.

But I seem to prefer using just a laptop more than the desk setup. Think it may be due to everything being in closer proximity to each other.

Since August 7, 2007, I have streamed 6510 movies/shows on Netflix.

First 5 were,

"The Ice Pirates","3/8/08"
"A Boy and His Dog","3/8/08"
"Californication: Season 1: Preview","8/7/07"

I forgot how much I enjoy running FreeBSD on the desktop - no systemd, no wayland, no dbus, no pulse audio, stable and quick, even on lower end hardware.

The simplicity of just startx and and a well tuned ~/.xinitrc can't be beat either.

Spent some quality time figuring out basic use of GPIO pins on an RPI 0W :raspberrypi:

Running Raspbian and Python, but may try out FreeBSD at some point too. Mainly wanted to focus on just building some circuits and coding instead of OS minutia.

Oh wow, so ZFS on a RaspberryPi actually has practical applications other than just storage

I was using it for some SSD storage for /usr/ports and things to speed up IO, but noticed that overall the system is snappier.

ZFS uses Adaptive Replacement Cache (ARC) which is much smarter about keeping things cached, especially when accessing bins and libs on slower media like an SDCARD.

Testing out new USB AV capture device with playing Doom on Jaguar while waiting for all these ports to build from source on FreeBSD 13 on a RPI.

“It's almost like stealing people's data and giving it to a hyper-intelligent AI as part of an unregulated tech monopoly was a bad thing.”

I've thrown out probably 5 or so USB-B cables (the ones usually used for printers) over the years that were just sitting around unused.

Today I need one, because of course I do.
