@clarjon1 hehehe it's not perfect, right rack ear is bent, it's a bit beat up, and i'm pretty sure the battery is either weak or dead (hopefully not leaking)

still, all things I can fix :) and it works great!

.....quick demo time?

re: positive nb experience 

Hey fedi, I'm making some *hellish* test disks to stress-test an automated Windows HDD->SSD and data recovery suite I was given. Here's what I'm thinking so far:
- Dual or triple boot (Linux, maybe hackintosh?)
- Files in random/arbitrary locations (maybe user thinks Recycle Bin is a safe place....)
- Weird programs (I'm thinking Xilinx Vivado could be wonderfully evil)
- Encrypted disks ala BitLocker
- maaaybe some recursive disk fun?

Y'all are wonderfully evil, how should I punish this thing?

Obituary for a beloved piece of software. 

Took the principles behind the Italian pan sauce and applied it with Asian flavors. Yum.

Chicken, bell peppers, onions, liaojiu (often erroneously called shaoxing wine), soy sauce, chili powder, salt, pepper, sugar, sesame oil.

Just got a chance to mix on a Behringer X32 this morning... 

Just did a simple dinner tonight...simple but oh so lovely :) No picture because I forgot one. (Sorry!)


Thin-sliced chicken cutlets seasoned with salt and pepper, dredged in flour, and pan-seared, served in a pan sauce reduction of white onions, marsala wine, balsamic vinegar, thyme, parsley, and butter.

.....okay, and there's a bit of sugar in there because I went a hair too acidic with the balsamic, sssssssssssshh ;)

This is awesome. NPR gave me a legitimate choice to accept their cookies and have a fancy experience or get the raw content I wanted with their text-only site.

@vfrmedia @clarjon1 Even better: integrate it with powerline ethernet and have it network-control something :)

......then again, wifi would work too

@clarjon1 @quarky then again, a certain someones *did* try to generate me a fursona huehuehuehue....you know who you are ;)

@clarjon1 @quarky heck, i've used this avi for so many years i don't think i'll ever change it, heh

unless I go out and start using an IRL pic of myself (gasp, avatars actually being a photo? shock!)

@quarky @clarjon1 mmm this is getting even better, i'm getting simultaneous notification pop-ups from the both of you now :)

my peripheral vision is justly confused

Pros of avi generators: cool avis! yay!

Cons of avi generators: they look similar enough that my peripheral vision has decided @quarky and @clarjon1 are the same avi, which has gotten mildly confusing at times hehehe :)
