I personally don't understand the whole "watching someone else play video games" thing. I used to hate sitting and watching my older brother play Mario by himself after all my guys died....but hey I'll check this out.

My daughter watches those stupid videos of people playing games for hours and it annoys me cause she is so focused on those that she can't hear a word we say.

Linux ddrescue gurus?

Any ddrescue gurus out there? I am trying to rescue a friend's broken hard drive and so far nothing is being rescued. I am wondering if I have syntax wrong or if the drive is just dead. I believe the hard drive is NTFS as the friend is a Windows user.

command:
sudo ddrescue -d /dev/sdb backup.img backup.logfile -v

output:
GNU ddrescue 1.19
About to copy 60011 MBytes from /dev/sdb to backup.img.
    Starting positions: infile = 0 B,  outfile = 0 B
    Copy block size: 128 sectors       Initial skip size: 128 sectors

Could be fun, though the Rockies still won't win even with the Force on their side.

Sneaky Amazon Prime seems to now default to $3.99 next day shipping. That's cost me a couple times.

I woke up for the sunrise and either Google was wrong or the Sun was late because it was supposed to happen at 6:22 not 6:49. Regardless it beautiful!

Got DisplayLink USB 3.0 driver working on my Ubuntu install! Had to alter the install script a few times for kernel version check and upstart/systemd stuff but happy with how it is working out. Now I have all 3 monitors up and running!
I just purchased a displaylink USB 3 based device; reading the forums I didn't pickup the difference between USB 2.0 being supported and USB 3.0 not being supported. This is nonsense. Content protection on the monitor, I don't care about being able to use protected content; I'd like to just be able to use the monitor I paid for. But no. I think you should support Linux with USB 3.0 devices to use non-DRM content.

Yuki Sushi Robata is my favorite sushi restaurant in south Denver area. The sushi is very fresh and has great flavor. The sushi rice is best in town, cooked perfectly. The prices are great with $1 nigiri all day.
