So here's a question out there for the fediverse,
Do you have any experience with the #hondanavi at all? Do you know someone that does?
I figure crowdsourcing some actual on-road experience about the thing would be helpful in deciding whether or not I get one.
I require help on small motorized machines like only talking heads on the internet can
I was going through my books the other day and found a copy of one about using open source intelligence techniques to do investigation work.
Now, this might just be the painkillers talking, but I think I need to adopt a raccoon named Buzz then me and that little trash panda are gonna go solve mysteries together.
I've been reading the Pleasure of Finding Things Out, a collection of talks by Richard P. Feynman. What I find most interesting is the sense of his attitude and nature. He strikes a chord with me, mostly because he finds life funny, and takes almost nothing seriously.
Some of what he understood 50-70 years ago is JUST becoming commonly relevant today. His understanding of quantum computing for example, he was easily 40-50 years ahead of his time.
Absolutely amazing mind.
Tenets of IT. This one should probably be underlined and bold:
31. You are replaceable at work, no matter how highly you think of yourself. You are not replaceable at home.
It'd be neat to have a single app that all my teams use to edit their own part of an architecture diagram... and they are all glued together through an overview pane... oh that'd be nice
anyone know of one? That maybe imports from like 6 other very specific options that my teams are using? Ok, maybe that part is a stretch goal :D
I challenge any CenturyLink customer to do what I just did... while streaming a video from the internet, I rebooted my router. It rebooted fast enough that my buffer didn't drain, and my video never even flickered.
My secret? My router is a home grown build running Arch Linux. It reboots and is back online in under 2 minutes. Show me a single CenturyLink router/modem that can match that. I dare you.
Pura is seriously a company that listens to their people (customers & employees). We have an ambitious project we are working on, and when I suggested a [frankly complex option to the project] they loved the idea, and are going to try and make it happen. Wish I could say more about that, but unfortunately I can't. Watch for more later...
