This is the box Verizon sent to return 3 cable cards. They are credit card size.

A reminder of what's wrong with #systemd

+Petros Koutoupis I don't think there are any alternate boot loaders for an RPi. There's no BIOS, so the GPU has a built-in boot loader that reads the SD card (and only supports FAT). There are several people who would like to do things like PXE booting, but that would require someone to reverse engineer the GPU's boot loader and write a new one with a NIC driver. Maybe someday, but AFAIK, nobody's made much progress on that.

We were playing with blocks and she said, "daddy, build me a choo choo train." That's the best I could do.

I've been using desktop PCs as home routers (and sometimes work routers) since I first had a network of computers at home in 1996. At the time it was a hand-me-down 386 running Slackware with a 2.0.0 kernel and a couple 10Mbit NICs. Today, it's a Sandybridge running ArchLinux with a couple 1Gbit NICs. Neither being anything special for their time.

It's interesting to see someone compare a PC to an off-the-shelf router. Too bad he didn't throw in an enterprise class router for comparison (and do latency benchmarks).


With more speed available and hardware that can't adapt, DIY builds offer peak performance.

Words with Friends has some pretty wrong example sentences.

I don't think it's a coincidence that the only people who spot UFOs, Big Foot, or the Loch Ness Monster all have bad cameras and always take blurry picture.

But then clear pictures would be a lot less entertaining. See how long your friends want to look at your vacation pictures of a mossy log or a frisbee in flight.

Here's another experiment: smear some grease on your camera lens and take a bunch of pictures. See what kind of supernatural phenomena your imagination conjures with that batch.

Amazon should advertise that there's never a line at the checkout. Maybe they already do and I'm just conditioned to avoid ads.

Another example of what's wrong with #systemd

It's a headless machine. After adding an nfs mount, I rebooted and couldn't ping the machine. Had to get a monitor and keyboard to see what the problem was. Fighting with systemd was not on my schedule for today :(

+Josh Harding Well, then, try timedatectl set-ntp false and/or systemctl mask systemd-timesyncd. (Use arch-chroot from arch-install-scripts to chroot into the sdcard on another machine.)

Correction: arch-chroot won't work unless you're using another armv7 system.

Silly me, I wanted to track 1 package, but I guess that's too many.

Nice.  You should write their PR department and explain their epic fail.

I don't look at the clickbait ads very often, but this one caught my attention.  Do they have a program that randomly puts captions with images?  At least The Onion writes headlines that match their images.

It's good they put the giant arrow in there or I might have missed the AT&T logo crash landing on Normany Bay... the "never publicized" way that the Empire helped the Allies end WWII before that Skywalker kid came along.
