@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.
@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. -> https://glennr.nl/scripts 👍
`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. ☹️🐄
“That was ‘Big Yellow Taxi’ by Joni Mitchell, a song in which Joni complains they ‘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.” 😉
Friday, 8:22... I forgot to enable daylight saving time. 🙄 Cheeky fox running across our driveway at that time off the morning! 🦊😎 #foxesofmastodon
@cooper Had a look online, they do look very similar. 👍
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.
Are you tying your shoelaces correctly? If you are, it's pure fluke!! 🤣
@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! 🤔
More of the same, but via SSH... 👍
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. 😁👍
Perfect intro! 😉
