Some months back I broke the keyboard on this Entroware Athena ☹️. I was a little to aggressive with it when gaming. I contacted Entroware on Friday. New keyboard arrived today! Fitted in 10 mins. 2 screws, 2 connectors. Done! Great service.

Just converted a 2-disk Linux MD RAID 1 array to a 4-disk MD RAID 5 array, online, with just a couple of commands. Now I get to watch it reshape with "watch cat /proc/mdstat". Better than Netflix, this is.

My ThinkPad X220 was last clean-installed with 14.04 in 2015 and has since been upgraded through many releases. Just upgraded it to 20.04, and Unity is still wonderful. 😍 Just needs s Yaru theme to finish it off 😂

Time to let off some steam with OpenSpades!
I'm going to chase down @Wimpy with a spade (and a gun).
Gonna play on my "Good vs Evil" (I will of course, be Evil) server. Join us and have some fun with spades. (snap install openspades ;) )

Bank Holiday Easter Monday lockdown boredom led to:
✔️ Setting up a game server
✔️ Creating a discord to chat
✔️ Registering a domain
✔️ Configuring Apache
✔️ Using Hugo to make a static site!
Fun times. 🍾

Is there a proper name for these quadruplet conjoined grapes I got in my bunch? 🍇 Inquiring minds want to know. 🤔

Cooking tip of the day! Need to get crystallised honey out of a container? Everyone knows you put it in hot water. However, put it in a mason jar of hot water, and the lid holds it down, so all the honey melts! 🐝🍯

The C: defrag status on my Dell Latitude XPi P133 running Windows 98 is old enough to vote. If I leave it much longer, it'll be old enough to drink in the USA! This seems like an unwise course of action. I think I should defragment it forthwith.

Nipples! Just arrived in the post. A Christmas present for each of my ThinkPads. 🎄💻

I'm going to do another informal live stream on YouTube this afternoon.
Today, a bit of noodling around in 19.10 and seeing how to file bugs (if we find any) ;)

Another quick live stream coming up in 5 mins from me. More 19.10 testing, and some behind the scenes information.

T-5 days until 19.10 is released. So today I'm doing some more testing of the various flavour images. I'll be live streaming in about 30 mins. Join me over on YouTube for a bit if you can. 👋

My Android device gives the best advice! Clear up those memes!

Been play(test)ing Cecconoid from @korruptor on . It's a brutally hard 8-bit inspired, flick-screen, twin-stick-shooter 🎮 I *love* it. You might too. It'll be out soon I'm told on Itch and Steam.

Woohoo! Just upgraded my main ThinkPad T450 from 16GB to 24GB. Another 16GB module arriving next week to take it to 32GB. The specs say it can only take 16GB (2x8GB), but there are reports online 32GB (2x16GB) works. So far so good! 🍾 Time to open a few more Chrome tabs! 🤣

One reason I prefer the ThinkPad TrackPoint over a trackpad is scrolling. Turns out not everyone knows you can hold the middle mouse button and use TrackPoint to smoothly & precisely scroll in 4 directions. Keeps hands on the keys too. ❤️ 💻
