Just got a BBC micro:bit (for my 10 year old). What a wonderful device! I'm posting here to check my understanding of how to work with it. Hope you guys don't mind. There is of course the Microsoft web-interface to coding which (for now) I am not too fond of. I am far more interested in using microPython. As I understand it, there are two ways to use it.

1) use the Mu editor to write Python scripts and flash the resulting hex code to the micro:bit
2) uflash the microPython interpreter to the micro:bit device and work interactively (over thre serial port).

Did I get this right?

Anyone notice missing text consoles? e.g. ctrl-alt-F1 etc.

(I have Loki on a Lenovo T450s)

Does anyone know were the saved messages go to in Geary? (e.g. when you are composing and click on the save & close icon). And what happens to archived conversations?

Fingers crossed!
A new class of antibody drugs could stop migraines at their root.

On the horizon is a new class of drugs that many scientists believe can stop migraines at their root. The drugs block the activity of a molecule called calcitonin gene-related peptide, or CGRP, which spikes during migraine attacks. CGRP is the best validated target for migraine, ever. It may also help finally solve the centuries-old puzzle of what triggers the complex events of a migraine attack, which can cause brain activity to be “completely disregulated” for several days, similar to epilepsy and other recurrent, seizurelike disorders. Four pharmaceutical companies are racing to complete advanced clinical trials of antibodies that either neutralize CGRP by binding to it, or block its receptor. So far the data suggest the drugs work faster, for longer, and better than anything currently available.

All right,… (dear lazy web)

Let’s assume you home gets broken into,… your #laptop is #stolen (with valuable and critical info on it). Fortunately you do have a backup though. Nevertheless your #personal and #sensitive data is in the hands of a #criminal (alas not encrypted).

Of course you have reported all to the police. Informally the #police have an idea who(m) the perpetrator(s) might be. However the local police are not seasoned #cyber #forensic experts. From your wlan access point logs you can recover the network MAC addresses of your laptop (coincidentally you also have the serial number).

What are the possibilities to trace (and subsequently recover) in some way or manner where your laptop might be. Could you undertake something on your own? Would you need cooperation from the police or maybe from an ISP? I have some ideas how to go about it,…

Your ideas?

PS: fortunately this did not happen to me.

Somehow I managed to enable the Plank settings icon. Which I used to enable icon zooming (as you pass over it with the mouse cursor). I can't for the life of me remember how I got this settings icon enabled. I now want to do the same on another system,... Anyone have a hint?

A variation on +Peter Van Bruystegem and +Tom Martens work. Basically added some basic keybindings (left pane) and a choice of two clocks (Miui and Gotham based). Note the extra rules here and there and the local and remote IPs bottom right (needs an external script ).
