@jynx configured an interface with jack, the hardware monitor connected to my 1970s stereo receiver. Then recorded a quick improv a couple minuts long in ardour of guitar (with a hardware insert via my interface connected to a multi effects proc) and a synth part using yazumi and my 25 key keyboard. I can use this setup for sure...

Installing Ubuntu Studio on the PC in my studio. The 40" monitor is sexy as hell on the new monitor stand, the Veiwsonic 1080p 22"(?) looks great as a second display. After this gets done installing, next on the docket is setting up all the audio interfaces...

Seeking information: Are there any options for a person wanting to self-host a GnuSocial/Pleroma/Mastodon server inside a sub-directory? It seems Mastodon completely rules this out. It would also be cool if this choice would live comfortably on a Raspberry Pi on a residential Internet connection. I did just try epicyon and it does not like living in a subdirectory at all (lot's of mod RewriteRules half assedly made it function but other instances would not see it).


... Maybe, but it's not as bad as Perl!

Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week! πŸ€“

Call me old school, but the dependency hell and version incompatibilities of Python lead me to absolutely despise that language.

Anyone have any ideas about a spot on an HP Omnibook 300 or 425 I could reasonably pull 5v from without significantly or irreversibly modifying the device?

There's not a consistent 5v on the parallel port or the serial port, AFAIK, so I'd need to try and draw from the PCMCIA slot, I guess?

To aid in job hunting, I have replaced my flip phone with a Samsung J7 Crown. Using the T-UI launcher, and termux, it is pretty comfy. I needed screen real estate and chrome for submitting applications...

Odd mood... listening to a playlist of Marduk and Slowdive. Just compiled Plan9 From User Space, running Rio. Pretty neat. I need to do some read though, because as of right meow, a terminal is open for everything graphical I want to run. Surely there is a facility to accomplish something like dmenu. Don't tell me! I got this!

My daughter, Lucille, and I like to cook together on the weekends. We just made some xxxtra hot cheetos encrusted cheese sticks. They were so good, I do not have a photo to post... Tomorrow morning we are likely making crunch-wraps for breakfast.

D'oh! RPoD was down all night due to my DNS script suddenly deciding not to work... Had to reboot the router last night, and did not check!

From the bottom of my heart: fuck systemd.

@jynx TIL that a 64bit OS on an RPi 3b+ is just not a performant choice. This conclusion was reached while running st on ratpoison and having cd take 8 seconds. I think that I shall reserve this experiment for an RPi 4 (sometime in the future, no current plans to buy). Also, firefox ESR 60 on Devuan never successfully attached to browsh. Nothing ventured, nothing something something...

Devuan downloaded, dd'd to new uSD, booted, partition expanded, user added, root passwd changed, dotfiles downloading. Nice.

Oh hell yes! Devuan has Raspberry Pi 3b arm64 images @ files.roundr.devuan.org/devuan I use Devuan on my Thinkpad, and like it quite a bit.
