Living in the 21st century, part <n>.

Firmware update for my camera, to make it fully compatible with the manufacturer's new flash unit.

Wrote some buffer-recycling code for test purposes this afternoon which corrupted my bootloader.

Three times, so far.

Off to get somebody to teach me how to re-flash it (through the JTAG port) myself.

Got polled by some high school political science students on my way into the primary election this morning. Asking my top issue for the presidential race, they weren't prepared for the answer "science. "

Sometimes you can't make the hardware do what you want because the hardware manufacturer lied.

Living in the future, today's edition:

Today I killed a multi-terabyte hard disk. And it wasn't a big deal; it was just one of several disks with copies of backups. [And a side job of holding music for me to listen to at work.]

Multiple terabytes of data, and the device holding them, gone. And I don't care because the device is cheap enough that it doesn't hurt to replace and the data is backed up multiple ways.

I got the most capable (and last) of my several planned ways to serve music across the house wireless network working this afternoon. And as a result, finally figured out why my Android tablet didn't work for streaming television; it wants to save power by turning the WiFi off when it's "idle" and not plugged in. This isn't a standard Android "permission," so my streaming music applications have no way to tell the system "No, I'm using that!"

I think the answer has to be disabling the shut-down-WiFi settings completely, and depending on the regular sleep settings.Unfortunately, the setting screen doesn't make any sense, so it may take me a lot more experimentation to figure it out.

Hmm. The ""Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" is already set to "Always" (as it is on my phone, which doesn't have the same problem). On neither device does is have the keep-device-from-sleeping permission.

My wife's Corolla is supposedly able to tow more than my Accord. I'm not sure how much to take the manufacturers' numbers as gospel...
