I remember having one of these novelty radios. Perfect Pi project.

I had an older WD My Cloud NAS fail on me this month. It was under warranty but they don't make them any more so I got a new "My Cloud Home". Ugh.

No local web dashboard, have to do any admin via their website.
Not that there's any settings worth anything of course, no NFS, no FTP, just a single "public" samba share.
Plex is there as the only media server. And the folders are pre-configured.
Plus the files in the samba share are inaccessible to the cloud interface and vice versa.
No torrent client etc.

I think I'm gonna just stick with the samba share, put Kodi and any other software on the Pi under the TV. The drive inside is apparently "shuckable" so I could stick it in something else if I get sick of it.

TIL ICQ still exists and its Linux client is Apache licenced. Unfortunately my account doesn't seem to exist any more.

Little Dot's favourite tune right now is this classic from +MC Frontalot. She even tries to rap along. Found her yesterday holding a toy microphone and notebook of scribbled lines...

Just ordered a rather snazzy, all-blue, Speccy replica. Planning to mod it into a working USB keyboard and maybe stick a RPi inside too.

It just hasn't been my weekend.

1. Supposed to be getting a line upgrade for my dsl, finally going to get more than 5meg. Instead I have no dsl connection at all for 2 days.

2. Hard drive dies in my laptop, had to replace with the ancient 16GB SSD from my old netbook.

3. Finally, my WD My Cloud NAS takes a dive from the shelf. I thought it was ok as it hung from it's cables but it's now flashing a red light at me and the 4TB drive inside won't even get recognized if I plug it in my PC. Should be in warranty and most data can be replaced but I'm not sure if there was anything important there not already backed up elsewhere.

Resharing my daughter's birth announcement. Five years ago today!
I am pleased to announce to the release of Ward 12.10 "Dorothy". 
The size is a bit bigger than usual at 3kg but should still fit comfortably in a standard carrycot for installation.
We concidered adding a volume control and more descriptive audio indicators, but in the intrests of simplicity and elagance we stuck with the tried and true "Wailing Banshee" alarm at maximum volume.

[/geeky satire]
We would like to announce the arrival of our daughter, Dorothy. Weighing 3kg with fully working lungs!
She shares her birthday with Chuck Berry, Jean-Claude Van Damme, the BBC, Moby Dick and of course #ubuntu1210 .

Ten years since Portal came out.

Also ten years since we had a Half Life game but we try to not think about that...
