Er is iets grondig mis als een taxi met 4 van aan Gent-Sint-Pieters naar de luchthaven in Zaventem goedkoper is dan met de trein...

Met dank aan de stakende machinisten, weer wat bijgeleerd. Geen trein meer voor ons!

De paaltjesoorlog in #Gent is gestrand op gelijkspel: in de straten met doorgaand verkeer was de meerderheid voor de paaltjes, maar de mensen die nergens last van hadden misten een kans om zich solidair op te stellen en stemden tegen.

Resultaat: 49% voor, 49% tegen, 2% onthouding

Dit is dus niet het einde...

En misschien had de stemming er nog anders uitgezien hadden enkele bejaarde tegenstanders de buurt niet overspoeld met leugens en laster....

Yet another microswitch failing on my aging Logitech Trackman Marble FX , this time it was the top one, which I have configured for scroll mode. Guess I've been scrolling a lot :)

Good thing these are so nice to service

A tip if you want to use a bluetooth mouse (or other device) on a system with dual boot. Out of the box, this doesn't work, at least not with recent Windows versions.

The problem is that each OS creates its own key for the pairing, so the device needs re-pairing when you switch OS.

The easiest way is to grab the key from Microsoft and enter into the correct config file on linux.

The steps:

On Windows:
- Get psexec for windows: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553.aspx and place it somewhere convenient
- run cmd as administrator (important)
- cd to the place where you put psexec
- run "psexec -s -i regedit.exe"
- in the registry, go to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services\BTHPORT\Parameters\Keys\<MAC of BT adapter>
- there will be a key named after the MAC of the BT device you want to use, its data is a 16 byte value. Note/copy it

On Linux:
> sudo -i
> cd /var/lib/bluetooth/<MAC of BT adapter>/<MAC of BT device
> nano info   (or use an editor of your choice)
under the [LinkKey] section there will be a Key entry, put the 16 byte key from Windows there
Save. Done!

As puzzled together from various places, I take no credit.

Tried to enable the fingerprint reader on my new Lenovo T450s under #debian and since the whole thing isn't documented properly I thought I'd share what I did to get it working:

First, install the fprintd package and friends (libpam-fprintd)

Then create /etc/udev/rules.d/50-fingerprint.rules with this content:
SUBSYSTEM !="usb_device", ACTION !="add", GOTO="fingerprint_rules_end"
SYSFS{idVendor} =="138a", SYSFS{idProduct} =="0017", SYMLINK+="fingerprint"
MODE="0666", OWNER="nobody", GROUP="fingerprint"
LABEL="fingerprint_rules_end"
 (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libfprint/+bug/827669)

make sure you check the USB VID/PID of the device as the bugreport mentions PID 0018 where my thinkpad sensor is PID 0017

Now the fprint demo should work, and you can manipulate the fingerprint data with:
fprintd-enroll
fprintd-verify
fprintd-list
fprintd-delete

The fun thing is that whenever authentication is required the LED of the sensor lights up and you can swipe to authenticate.

The downside is that you can only enroll one copy for each finger, so recognition is actually a bit of a hit and miss

WindowsPhone, you suck so terribly. Microsoft just proves they are incompetent at making a proper OS.

My wife has a #windowsphone from work (it was cheaper back then), and this #HTC junk is now constantly pinging reminders for an OS update.

This can't be disabled. Thou shall do OS upgrades!

Except: the net is littered with reports that the updates hor HTC fail with code 0x80188308, something about a special partition to use for updates being too small.

First: what's with those stupid long errorcodes?

Second: Fix the damn issue, first reports go back two months

Third: allow users to disable/delay updates, or disable the notification (beep)

Fitting term, as the phone is kinda given by the company, so I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth :))))

Dit is toch wel het beste dat ik in Gent al gegeten heb! Jammer van de locatie en sommige bezoekers die denken dat ze in een brasserie zijn beland, dit verdient echt wel beter.

Superb service and excellent price/quality. Highly recommended if you're looking for quick food or a snack.

Super locatie voor een snack, grote bier-keuze, super-vriendelijke (en grappige) bediening. Aanrader. Wordt overgelaten aan nieuwe uitbaters in eind 2012

Zeer onvriendelijke bediening: als je 10 seconden nadenkt over een alternatief omdat je wens niet verkrijgbaar is krijg je de opmerking 'ik heb wel nog ander volk dat ik moet bedienen' (het restaurant was LEEG op dat moment). En daar bleef het niet bij. Verder ZEER beperkte keuze aan bier (schitterende lokale bieren kenden ze zelfs niet) TIP: ga wat verder naar Vrolijke Frans - veel betere service en aanbod

Ervaring van ontbijt in Bord'eau: vrij onvriendelijke bediening, uiterst traag (zelfs met slechts 2 tafeltjes bezet!), zeer beperkt aanbod voor de prijs. Niet voor herhaling vatbaar.... Enig pluspunt is de locatie (uitzicht), al was de ober niet echt blij dat we met het mooie weer buiten wilden zitten.
