Well that was probably more time than I should have spent on hacking the Spotify Terraform provider to make recording to 💽 MiniDisc easier. But maybe I'll get a t-shirt.

15 minutes ago, "Okay, let's dig into SerenityOS tonight, probably be an hour or two of work."

10 minute later....

That was, huh, much less eventful than I was expecting. Time to dig deep even more.

Passed the CKA over the weekend. Used the Udemny labs and which prepared me well for it.

Overall exam was challenging but not overly difficult.

Finally figured out adding intel_iommu=igfx_off as a kernel boot param fixes random Radeon graphical glitches.

Just put in an order to DigiKey for a few parts needed to automatically update label tracks on a MiniDisc 💽 using md-rec with a RaspberryPi :raspberrypi:

Now that I have a proper Linux laptop again, the one thing it's missing is the Universal Copy/Paste and Airdrop that Apple devices have that make it so. damn. easy. to copy things between devices.

Seems like Tailscale may be able to rectify that,

I've used Spaceship Prompt for a while to customize zsh, and today after watching Containers From the Couch was introduced to Starship.

Can't wait to see more of this, not that I really need track names on Minidisc, but would be a cool project to have setup,

After munging my zsh config and a few gpg-agent tweaks for my yubikey, finally have a properly working Linux Laptop.

Here's it working properly after a couple of reboots with no changes.

Seems sporadic, but at least it "works" in a sense.

This is what it looks like from a screenshot point-of-view, although the black part is white when looking at it on the LCD itself.

Interestingly, even with a terminal window open that renders on the screen, the screenshot tool doesn't capture it, just black.

Riddle me this - sometimes X on this laptop with a Radeon doesn't quite work (90% of the screen is a white block which does render a terminal but not a browser or background)

However, sometimes on a reboot, X comes up just fine and works 100% correctly.

No idea.

Oh yes,

> Telehack is a simulation of a stylized arpanet/usenet, circa 1985-1990.

I love the sound profile of MiniDisc ATRAC, it's like digital warmth.

The sound of the disk spinning up every 40 seconds to buffer into memory is a feature IMHO too.

I'm spending more and more time on, digging through old magazines and versions of websites tracking down obscure tech.

It's amazing how much content is archived, and is vastly more interesting than the majority of what's on the modern Internet.

(Yes I'm getting old)

Synchro recording on a Minidisc from Spotify is much easier when you add Silent 23 by Broken Heroes between tracks in a playlist.

Time to rip some music like it's 2000.

Going to do OutRun by Kavinsky first, then start going through other vaporwave artists on Bandcamp.

Just taking a minute to appreciate that 💽 is an official unicode and emoji symbol.

Minidisc is like vinyl in 2006, but with 90s music.
