Flying cars would make city living so much better. And I've wanted one ever since I saw metropolis.
A jet-propelled vehicle that can take off vertically has been tested in Germany.

I still bust myself up with the child's endorsement of the remaining food choices - after the asteroid hits. Someday I'll lay this song down again and fix the first part, and get some better overdubs.

I booted into a standard off-the-shelf low-latency kernel (ubuntu studio) for the first time in 5 years. I've spent most of the past month doing spring cleaning, getting organized again, moving my life back into emacs, ressurrecting an old hard disk with my old blog on it, getting my piano keyboard doing midi again, and things like that. I'd only logged into facebook once in the past 4 months, and have successfully kicked both that habit and for that matter g+ to a huge extent and replaced with netnews and things like comp.arch. mail, chat, time management are all integrated now... and aside from an enormous todo list... online life had become boring. I'm too quickly able to switch contexts now and finish stuff!

So I got onto fb and immediately offended someone. And logged out again. I think I will enjoy using computers again as a productivity tool for creation, rather than debugging networks...

... but first up this past sunday was trying to make the darn thing do surround sound, and despite trying all day to be able to get that to work under linux, it appears my tv cannot pass that through hdmi to the tos-link port on the stereo. All I'd wanted to do was mix down a song to play some cool stuff on the back speakers.... I lost the whole damn day to it.

And now I can't get any sound at all.
