Oh dear. πŸ™„ I'm disappointed to learn they are unable to pelwver my pacqage due to dihficulties... I'll try to contain my disannointment at not requeeving it.

@greenpete The keyboard was under half an inch of dust and spider webs too...! πŸ•ΈοΈ

@greenpete I should have taken an "after" pic too. It's clean now. 🀣 They seem pretty decent machines. Copes fine as our home media server - boots from a 60gb SSD, and I got rid of the DVD to squash in a 3tb and a 2tb HDD.

This ThinkCentre (now cleaned and hoovered!) is a Linux server that's been running in a cupboard 24/7 for about 7 years. I acquired it second-hand, with no drives. Not sure how old it really is... πŸ€”

@rudolf It might be an awful cliché, but there's "Fedizen" - as a citizen of the fediverse. Older inhabitants of Fosstodon could be "Fossils"... 🀣

Helpful script!! In this instance, painless set-up of a local UniFi controller on a Raspberry Pi. -> glennr.nl/scripts πŸ‘
`bash unifi-5.13.32.sh --local-controller --server-ip 192.168.1.nn`

@sexybiggetje Perhaps potatoes are not truly vegan... if they've been fed on meat? 🀣 I must admit I had no idea how awful some modern farming really is. I saw an advert for "free range cows" and I didn't realise that "non-free range cows" were an actual thing that happens. β˜ΉοΈπŸ„

β€œThat was β€˜Big Yellow Taxi’ by Joni Mitchell, a song in which Joni complains they β€˜Paved paradise to put up a parking lot’, a measure which actually would have alleviated traffic congestion on the outskirts of paradise, something which Joni singularly fails to point out, perhaps because it doesn’t quite fit in with her blinkered view of the world. Nevertheless, nice song.” πŸ˜‰

Friday, 8:22... I forgot to enable daylight saving time. πŸ™„ Cheeky fox running across our driveway at that time off the morning! 🦊😎

@cooper Had a look online, they do look very similar. πŸ‘
To be super-picky about my Maxpedition it might be better if more of the internal pockets had zips or fastenings... but I don't seem to have many problems with stuff falling out into the 'main' compartment.

@cooper I've been carrying a Maxpedition Kodiak Gearslinger for almost 10 years, and still looks new, apart from a bit of scuffing around the shoulder strap. It does that thing where you unclip a webbing strap and it swings around in front of you, so you can use both hands to access the contents. Bit expensive, maybe? But in terms of value, it looks like it will probably last forever.

@sotolf Maths isn't my strong point, but I found his explanation very approachable. The original WW2 decryption seems incredible.

How easy is it to crack Enigma using a modern laptop? Still not *that* easy! πŸ€”

"P4wnP1 A.L.O.A." Remote USB keystroke injection, via a spawned WiFi AP, using a £13 RPi-ZeroW... nice!! 😎

I'm a militant skeptic when it comes to "magic" hifi cables that defy the laws of thermodynamics, but this new cable has instantly eliminated a relentless, pulsing hum between a channel-strip and a Focusrite interface. Nothing mystical here either... just the result of switching an unbalanced guitar interconnect for a balanced TRS patch lead. πŸ˜πŸ‘

Perfect intro! πŸ˜‰

Rule number 1 of the USB Rubber Ducky club is, don't tell anyone you're a member of the USB Rubber Ducky club. πŸ€”πŸ¦†
