This is, however, very bittersweet as I say goodbye to my home for the last 9 years. I've loved helping the students and staff of Avery County Schools, and it has been a joy to teach computer science and see my students learn and go out into the world. How lucky I have been!
Finally got my iPod reformatted with fat32 so I could install Rockbox. While not the best UX in terms of ease of use or navigation, it unlocks so much potential that the stock firmware doesn't have (plus, it's FLOSS) . Native FLAC playback on a 5th gen iPod with the iFlash kit and a legendary Wolfson DAC. It doesn't really get better folks!
Saying goodbye to my UE Mini Boom today. Despite not being waterproof, this thing has accompanied me in almost every shower in every place I've lived for over 5 years. Been dropped countless times from various heights and doused with water often, but kept ticking. Unfortunately it doesn't really charge, and doesn't hold the charge for long when it does, so I'm afraid it's time to replace it.
Since I refuse to use Spotify I can't do the #spotifywrapped thing, but here's my most played for the year. Basically it's just a mix between Hozier and Brandi Carlile.
Spent the day addressing the last 2 major remaining engineering hurdles for Vocal's http://gpodder.net integration, so now it's officially time to celebrate turkey day!
