From the dragonfly digest:
This is straight up awesome, and the presentation explains where these beats come from, why they are... it's just a really wicked presentation. The use of a circular display as well as a drum machine display in the slide. Plus history of various parts of the beats.
Et voila 2TB on original softmodded XBox. Needs a SATA/IDE Adapter though. Mind you this is 19yr old hardware :-) you cannot go much beyond 2TB so these are now maxed out.

Update: yesterday, I had a first experience with being a speaker in Clubhouse. It‘s simple / effortless and works quite well, if a bit low on features. Still not entirely sure if an optional recording feature would be a good thing or not. (For now, afaik, Clubhouse rooms can only be listened to live)
Amazon AWS are forking Elasticsearch and Kibana:
update: this install runs flawless and noticeably faster than my 2015 dual core Celeron setup.
First impression about Clubhouse iOS after a few hours of usage:
Whatever ethical opinion you may have about Clubhouse, UX wise, this seems to work well for people. I believe this may be more than a hype. It's a nice fusion of "podium discussion" and easy audience inclusion. Where otherwise lots of dedicated tech would be needed, all you need to run is a smart phone.
Careful: they need your phone number + they push users to share address book (convenience for user, contact graph for them)
Yesterday, after ~12 years of running MythTV on intel platforms, set up a new MythBackend on arm64 (RaspberryPi 4 / Ubuntu). Channel scanning still the achilles heel of a new vanilla install, but got it all to work after a bit. It's surprisingly snappy + Much less power usage, yay for me! -> Astra Set + Myth Backend + KODI Frontend still very much recommended for an OFFLINE TV setup!
Nutzt ihr die Erweiterung "The Great Suspender" für #Chrome oder #Chromium? Dann solltet ihr das deinstallieren. Der Maintainer hat die so verändert, dass nicht vertrauenswürdiger Code auf euren Rechner ausgeführt werden kann.
KVM / libvirt NVMe VM backup script love! This is what i do: 1) create drive overlay to fix the backup disk file 2) tar.gz it with 8 threads using pigz 3) write packed output stream directly to backup disk at 70MByte/s 4) when done, remove overlay again
This manages to back up all my running VMs without interruption, 1.3TB unzipped, <400GB zipped, in <2h.
And it’s disassembled. Next up: deep inspection and capacitor inventory taking.
Digging deeper. This may be the most modern photography of a Pico mainboard on the Internet :-)
