Why I live in South Texas, not South Dakota. Early February & roses are blooming & grapefruit is still on the tree.

Yes, it's the grapefruit tree in the front yard. In fact, it still has a few grapefruit on it.

Finally back to base at 08:30, paperwork and postflight done by 08:45, to bed soon.  Do it again tonight, hopefully without maintenance problems.  Base meeting in the morning, then home for a week.  It's about time...

Got my new Acer C720 chromebook, enabled developer mode, and installed Debian, replacing ChromeOS.  Not at all difficult, and so far so good.  The trackpad doesn't work at all, but a USB mouse works ok.  Haven't tried everything, including bluetooth, but the major stuff works.  I think I'm really going to like this device. 

Suspend is also not working.  If I could get the trackpad and suspend working, I would have a nearly perfect notebook.  As it is, I can live with it.  Guess I'll have to keep Teh Google heated up searching for solutions to these issues.

I had second thoughts, and reinstalled ChromeOS on the C720, and put Debian on the USB drive.  This way I can dual boot, and run ChromeOS when I want, and Linux when I want.  This time I installed Debian 64-bit, and went to Sid, which I've been running for a long time on my other Linux boxes.  The trackpad issue remains, and I plan to keep working on that.  Using a mouse is possible, but a PITA.  Getting everything set up the way I like it is a long road.  I still have Gnome3 on this device, and haven't installed Xfce, which I really prefer.  Gnome Shell still sucks as badly as I remembered.

Working nights again.  Trying to pass the time until Jenn & Matt get home.  It's going to be a long week.

Everyone needs to start using cryptography to encrypt emails, IMs, and everything else they can.  I'm about fed up with government snooping, and if everyone encrypted everything they sent, we would all be better off.  It's not really that hard.  OpenPGP and its variants make it easy to generate public and private keys, and automatically encrypt outgoing messages, and decrypt incoming ones.  It ain't that hard, folks, and I think it's our duty as citizens to push back against government invasion of our privacy.  If anyone cares, my public key is available from public keyservers, and I can decrypt anything sent to me using it.  If you want a link, let me know.

After reading the fallout from Snowden leaks, there doesn't seem to be a really secure crypto at the average persons level. Equip, money, etc. The raw computing power combined with total net and email access the government has, just about makes privacy impossible. Especially if they take a personal interest in you for some reason.

Just got a new Samsung Chromebook.  Going to spend some time getting Debian running well on it.  ChromeOS is ok, but somewhat limited.  It's fine for web surfing and other simple stuff, but it has its limitations.  It doesn't run java at all, which means it can't do things I need to do.  It's also somewhat limited on flash, which I also need for work.  In short, it's fine for web surfing, but it won't get the job done for simple work tasks I have to do all the time.  I'll have to keep my Android tablet and Debian netbook handy.

Debian is also somewhat limited on this device, since it uses armhf architecture for the CPU, and many packages aren't available for it.  Citrix, for instance, won't install because there is no armhf version available, so I can't do work stuff I need to do through CItrix.  The CPU is very fast for an ARM device, but too new to have much available software.  Being on the bleeding edge can be frustrating.

just to say "thankyou" for your advice about the Samsung  S3 low brightness on web pages, after a software update, it was as you said "power saving mode", which had switched itself on.
