About three years ago I was working on a TUI input deck using a Raspberry Pi 2 and the NoIR camera module and AR orientation markers on the surface for drawing the UI in my cybre helmet.

I should revisit that project this winter.

Rarely post pics of the kids. But this is too adorable, on her way to school, carrying an ☂

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Custom RS232 cables like snakes pouring from the SCSI adapter.
I watched termcap files glitter in the ir_black colorscheme in vim
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Shamelessly stolen:

All those backups seemed a waste of pay.
Now my database has gone away.
Oh I believe in yesterday.

There's not half the files there used to be,

The need for back-ups seemed so far away.
I knew my data was all here to stay,
Now I believe in yesterday.

Upgraded to v2.5.0. Enabled relay. Awaiting relay approval. Lets see how this works!

So went out with coworkers and ex-coworkers tonight, turns out there is a place called "nocturnal cookies that moved next door!

Another machine saved from battery death (the real-time clock/BIOS batteries are often leaky and the resulting corrosion can destroy the traces of a motherboard and nearby components).

Ideally the soldered-on battery is relaced with a solution that allows easy battery replacement, so it can be put in storage easily. Not sure yet what I’ll do here as there’s limited space in this Commodore PC-10C.
