What is Benoit B. Mandelbrot's middle name? Benoit B. Mandelbrot.

Looks like started shipping their Mark II Dev Kits on Friday. That's nice to see. Hopefully the rest of the Mark IIs will be shipping shortly. I love Mycroft, but it's hard to not be a little bitter about this whole thing when the expected shipping date was March of 2018. Three years later, still waiting.

Dropped my phone over the weeked. Landed right in that sweet spot between the case and the screen protector. Totally screwed up the screen. I only got this thing in September. Pretty pissed about the whole thing.

Day 13 of the 2021 Series:

A sad day for nerds. At least American nerds in the western United States. Still, sad.

I really want to try this extension, but I have a feeling that I'd get super sick of seeing that "blocked" screen pretty quickly.

Day 12 of the 2021 Series:

Yes, I really am that lazy. Probably a little stupid too, but definitely lazy.

I have nothing new or interesting to post for , so I thought I'd dig out an oldie for this weeks edition. This one is from March 30th, 2012. There's an IRC window down in the lower left, and some conky in the upper right. I THINK this a pre-Cinnamon Mint distro, but it could be just be a Gnome 3 desktop. I did run Mint 12 back around then, which was the version before Cinnamon became a thing.

I don't often link to Twitter statuses, because.... Twitter, but this one was funny. I'll quote so you don't have to click the link, but you can if you want to.

Getting excited for Perseverance. Who's watching tomorrow?

Thought that I'd use Garuda for my . It's pretty vanilla, no interesting or unique configuration. Still, feels like a pretty interesting distro.

My 4 hour meeting scheduled for this afternoon got cut back to 3 hours because it conflicted with another meeting.

Day 10 of the 2021 Series:

I gave JingOS a spin in the stupidest way possible, and it almost works. Assuming you're not worried about being spied on I guess.

Am I the only one that likes to put something "techy"/"nerdy" on the screen when non-technical people are going to see it? When I last visited my brother, I left eDEX-UI running every time I stepped away from the keyboard. Stuff like that.

Disillusioned from static sites. What's a "traditional" architecture based, hack-able, blog-ready software I can experiment with?

Must be capable of parsing Markdown at a minimum as my content store (markdown files) is not going to change.

Maybe it's too much to ask for, but... 🤷‍♀️

Day 9 of the 2021 Series:

I find that I use the Internet for almost everything. For some reason, that kind of rubs me the wrong way, but it gives me flexibility I don't want to lose.
