Flay boosted

The twenty-ninth edition of my weekly collection of Linux Phone news (@PINE64 , @purism and such), , is out!


Pine64 January update, @mobian Community Edition, shipping update and more!

Weird day. My TAB key kept on going off on it's own. Made it rather difficult to surf much less sit in a shell. Not the KB. Not the USB port. Later rebooted to a "bad superblock" error. Not even a proper grub rescue to be found. Booted from media and fsck the drive. Couple of numbers didn't align. Let it fix them. re-booted just fine. badblock showed no errors. No idea what caused it all. Boom went the afternoon.

Now my TAB key keeps on activating itself. Time to take apart the keyboard. Bad week for hardware. I blame it all on cat hair.

Been playing with a static site on a . Setup was pretty straight forward and well documented (flay.com/). Now I want to put additional services online. My own server for instance. Ideally in the same node as nothing is using much in the way of resources so far. Linode offers Kubernetes with Docker etc. The way to go? Suggestions? This is where I've not gone before.

Manjaro gave me a notification this morning.

It want to upgrade "downgrade" ;-0.

Anybody else have issues with ?

It's a POS on my (otherwise dead stable) KDE boxes. Always pooping itself.


Just checking to see if linking a blog post here... works. Carry on.


Hmm, no preview. I wonder how that works...

You did it folks. After a decade fallow on the web I've disentagled one of my domains (Christmas day tech support from GoDaddy even) and slapped together a little blog. I haven't set up a public facing server in twenty years, but it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Lots still to do but thank you all for the inspiration! Tested on Firefox and Brave, let me know if you see any glitches (I know the blog detail page crops the photo, looking into it).


My studio mate moved on so I dragged this huge chair in to make Stanley more comfortable while I worked. Oh good grief.

On the bright side I got to let off a extinguisher. The offender has been banned from anything fire related. Forever.

Another live stream finished last night. Opening ceremonies of the Middle East and North African (MENA) film festival. Lovely bunch to work with.


Happy from Willy, my partner in computing. We've been together so much he's started to groom me. Raspy tongued devil.

Working with a band's footage trying multi-cam . I'd normally attempt this in but they want to participate so we're trying to find a multi-platform open source solution. One just cues up the sources and presses play, switching each source as you would a live stream in . Any suggestions? Off surfing I go!
