Spending some time on Mastodon while watching the grandson.

Working the system hard today. Building Yocto's poky image, running a vm, and the usual (web, email, irc).

I just lost the capital S on my KPC3 TNC. All other letters worked. A loopback test of the serial port showed It wasn't the keyboard, OS, konsole, minicom, or USB to serial converter. Soft reset the TNC did not fix. I had to install the hard reset jumper and cycle power.

How is that even possible?

Its this kind of stuff that makes me want to drink.

Replacing the fan in this mini PC. Its was continuously used for several years as a Ubiquiti network controller.

Retroish computers. Its modern hardware in old cases. On the left has a ASROCK ITX board and the right a RPI3.

Look who just arrived at my sons house. I guess that makes me a grandfather. Yikes!

Setting up TwoToneDeluxe on this old Dell Vostro 1500 for a local fire department. It listens for the pages, records them, and emails or texts via email to peoples devices.

@chickfilla I use Okular every day. I would miss it. The browser based PDF readers I don't enjoy.
