Me playing Planetside 2.

Hi everyone.

I have had issues installing the latest fglrx driver since Ubuntu 14.10 came out. I am using Ubuntu Gnome 15.04, but have tried on bog standard Ubuntu 14.10 and 15.04 with the same results. The kernel portion of the install fails. Usually for this, I need to make sure that there is a soft link in /usr/src called linux, and that it points to the headers directory of the kernel version that appears when you do a uname -a. I have done this, and still no love.

I've got a thread going on over at the AMD forums, but haven't received a response. It has the fglrx-install.log if anyone would like to take a look at it.

I guess I don't know when GNOME started requiring Wayland support. In this particular case, the issue with the driver is a compile issue against the Linux 3.19 headers.

This is something that has confused me. We have all these people running around saying, "None of the climate predictions have come true thus far!" Well no shit they haven't. We have very smart people telling us that disaster is coming...UNLESS WE DO SOMETHING. We do something, albeit not as much as we like because idiot climate deniers (and people who just make money off of screwing the environment) get in the way. But we do something, and we avoid those terrible predictions.

And now here we are. We have to explain to those very same people who tried to stop us at every turn, that the work we did get done in spite of them is the reason we're not living in the hell that was described to us in the past.
We’re already much better off for cutting ozone-destroying CFCs.

Yeah, screw bluetooth ear pieces. I was in the car for two hours this morning and my phone only raeched 70% from being at 40%. 30 min and go. That's how it should be.

There seem to be a lot of misconceptions out there regarding what problems a password manager solves. Also here are typical responses to the LastPass leak, sorted by social media outlet.

Facebook: "I have a more secure place for my passwords: My brain."

Google+: "lol! I don't need to change my LastPass password. My master password is 18 characters long! Good luck brute forcing that one!"

Both are very, very wrong.

Oh also, if your manager is compromised.It would be a very rare circumstance that you wouldn't have access to your password manager anymore. With access to your manager, but now compromised passwords, you have a complete list of all sites and applications that need to have their passwords changed, and the means to generate new, godawful strong passwords, with just a few clicks.

The role of robust, state-sponsored force in America’s racial conflicts, which so shocked the country in Ferguson, Missouri, this month is far from unprecedented. In just one but by far the bloodiest example, the Tulsa race riot of 1921, the local police armed and enlisted white men to fight groups of blacks who had taken up weapons and called in the National Guard to “restore order”—which at the time meant rounding up black men en masse and putt...

I did not do any of my projects this weekend. I ended up making an emergency run to the Home Despot to get a lawn mower. I did not want to get a gas mower because they are the devil. I was eyeballing some corded electric mowers on Home Depot's site for about $150-$200.

When I got to Home Depot, they only electric mower they had was from EGO, and it was a lithium-ion battery mower for $500. I was really, really twitchy about this purchase, but holy crap, this mower is pretty awesome.

Aside from the features, and the fact that it's not a gas mower, the battery can also be used in other EGO tools. Tools that I need to get anyways. So I'm thinking I get 2 batteries, and one can be on a charger while another is being used. And I can just switch out as needed.

I can't believe I'm excited about lawn care. Something must be wrong with me.

My machine was humming along, minding its own business when I noticed it was still a member of the workgroup workgroup. So I changed it to Skynet so it can match the other machines in the house. Reboot, BSOD before Windows even fully starts up. Nice.

Well then I guess it's good that I wasn't able to waste my time on it. :)

Oh, and what I said before isn't entirely accurate. Due to various things, I did have to entrust the Guybrush VM to Windows. Obviously, I got burned. But Linux picks up Windows' slack nicely and saves the fucking day...again. Ubuntu LiveCD, mount the NAS, mount the harddrive, copy the VM off. Fortunately the VM is only 15GB.
