pleased to be hosting some interesting discussion of distributed bug tracking on the long-idle

If you use Debian: you're got getting the recent Intel CPU bugfixes because Intel updated the firmware package's license to state that it's not redistributable.

If use Linux other than Debian and have the bugfixes: ask your maintainers why they're distributing software they're not legally allowed to.

And in any case: next time you purchase a CPU, evaluate whether AMD might be a better choice than Intel.

someone should make a usb hub that can plug into others of itself like lego, so we can build usb hub castles with flash drive crenulations

there's an upper limit to how annoying login to websites can possibly get, right?

anyone here use ring and up for a quick connectivity test?

Firewood delivery day is a good fitness benchmark.. Much less wiped out than I used to be by it.

unplanned massive firewoord delivery day!!!

I can hear my neighbor's bass from 1 mile away. This is unusual and disturbing.

Noise sensitivity is not fun.

AC power is still somewhat black magic to me.

I mean, I understand a bridge rectifier, kinda, but.. So much analog hurts my brain.

Hmm, power factor is 0.12 and I don't know how my inverter deals with low loads with such a bad power factor.

Probably buffers it ok? Or perhaps it really uses 25 watts..

Pondering leaving my 3 usb drives powered on 16/7. I have a USB hub with per-port power control, and with their ports off, there's ony a 3 watt parasitic draw.

I imagine that Google might reason:

We can pick a high enough valuation that it's not viable for a competitor to pay it (eg two orders of magnitude higher than the cost to build the derivitive work), and we can absorb the extra harberger tax with little burden, taking it out of our current open source marketing budget.

Then when google later kills that project, they lower their payments or stop paying, and eventually the project's source gets released.

Harberger Taxation license

Very interesting license idea. Would it qualify as free software? (I think so probably)


"is that a biblical thing or is it star wars? I think it's star wars"

overheard at the coffee shop

"The investors combined to purchase 7.5 percent of the protocol at a $136 million valuation."

ICO scam or not, the concept of owning some percent of a protocol is incredibly disturbing.

My custom xfce panel data has kind of metastisized. That's 8.2 satellite SNR, inverter on, fridge on, battery 74% full at 28 volts, 365 watts solar production and 1.22 kwh total today, indoor and outdoor temp currently the same, and nearest storm is 6 miles.

I'd cram in indoor and outdoor humidity and stuff, but I'm out of pixels.

good seeing tonight, milky way seems unusually clear
