My Asus KGPE-D16 is up and running now: libreboot.org/docs/hardware/kg
Moving from 12 CPU cores to 32 should really help with time spent compiling Linux-libre: jxself.org/linux-libre/

Please keep all hands, feet, arms and legs inside the computer for the duration of this ride.

I am noticing the days are getting longer. It's nice to wake up from the sun in your face before the alarm clock goes off.


Reading this newpaper article from 1972, "Many DP managers would feel relucatent to have their proprietary data bases stored on remote CPUs"

How times change

Misplaced my headphones. When I finally found them they were next to the toothpaste, of all places. Why did I put them there?

Dentist appointment today for the usual checkup. I'm sure they'll continue to say my teeth are excellent.

I will really miss The Big Bang Theory. My friends and I have watched it since the pilot aired on September 24, 2007. It really feels like the end of an era.

It's better that they went out on top rather than waiting for the show to feel overstayed and worn out. Always leave them wanting more, right?

I have set this picture as my desktop background for now: twitter.com/afaberman/status/1

Goodbye, The Big Bang Theory.

I see that the talk by @lxoliva entitled "Who's afraid of Spectre and Meltdown?" is available now:
It's a good talk. I do not fear Spectre & Meltdown.

-libre 5.1, the freedom-respecting version of , is now available in my APT repository: jxself.org/linux-libre/ Enjoy!

Someone used my email address to schedule their dentist appointment. It had buttons to either cancel or re-schedule the appointment. I clicked Cancel. Hehe. :)

The order rsync does its files in is crazy. Just like it decides that 3 comes after 1, which is correct, it also decides that 20 comes before 3, which is stupid.

Today's Sesame Street program is brought to you by DRAM ECC error detected on the NB

Oh, I just spent 25 minutes compiling a program only to realize it was the old version because I stupidly didn't pull in the new one. :(

"To specify a numeric argument for a command, you hold down any combination of the CTRL, META, SUPER, and HYPER keys while pressing the desired numbers."

I challenge anyone to find a more powerful number than CTRL-META-SUPER-HYPER-7!

Just watched the latest episode of The Orville (S02E07-Deflectors.) It was good. They're doing "Star Trek" better than Star Trek is.

Especially considering how messed up Star Trek is now. invidio.us/watch?v=ojtX_Oz4WsU

I'm unveiling a new APT repo for Linux-libre, called libeRTy: fsfla.org/ikiwiki/selibre/linu

It contains .debs of Linux-libre compiled with the PREEMPT_RT patch for those that need a realtime kernel but also want freedom. Hence libeRTy. Get it? :)
