Turning on the flash when taking a picture of a projected slide presentation... doesn't work out totally wonderfully ;-)

Planck: because, your keyboard isn't nearly weird enough yet.

It's ortholinear, meaning, the keys aren't staggered. Set up by default in what's called the MIT layout, which is QWERTY, just... weirder.

This is the keyboard you need to ensure that nobody ever touches your computer again.

Neat thing seen... https://mzucker.github.io/2016/09/20/noteshrink.html

I didn't get quite as nice results on a sample that I tried, but that may be the fault of my handwriting! :-) It did pretty massively shrink the image files, without any loss of readability, to be sure.

I have been messing around a bit more with my Pine64 (64 bit quad-core ARM).

After installing a later edition of Debian, it seems to now be surviving reboots OK, as opposed to falling into some sort of "black screen of death" (which is imagined to be some sort of need to run fsck or such; it was stopping before the kernel gets to any interesting work).

My discovery of today is that it's able to run Kodi, complete with sound and graphics, however it's not got any optimized codecs, so it won't play video. The other not-totally-fun bit was that the Kodi UI was nearly glacially slow. I was able to get it to recognize and mount content via NFS from the neighbouring box, but it was very slow responding to input. (Seemed to recognize files on NFS quickly enough, mind you...)

I'm not quite sure what I ought to have it run.

I'll bet I ought to make it a Postgres buildfarm animal... I hope I have enough storage (11GB left on a 16GB MicroSD card).

If you read this as if it's serious, and not satire, it's pretty creepy how true it seems.  In fact, I wonder if there's not strategy in the Tim Hortons boardroom to this end...
