hey guys, ltns
How are you?
I'm good man, how you been?
What you up to these days?
Still coding for food and building CNC machines
My computer life and carpentry life has merged in CNC
I'm still at Legal Aid... got 7 more years to go until I can retire.
That's pretty cool, when you're done retire out here :)
I'll get started on the pool
When I came home I thought I would find 1000 uses for ltsp but alas everything is wireless out here
I have seen laptops with wifi pxe capacity, worst design ever but they do exist
Meh, kind of a moot point in many ways.
15 years ago, we in the linux community wanted to win the desktop. It was our dream.
In the end, we won everything BUT the desktop.
Server, embedded, mobile... most of it runs linyx
As a developer I have ran into some of the reasons we did not win the desktop...
I, personally like linux as a desktop; but I actually understand computers. Most don't.
I told some guys in linux audio one that just because its opensource does not been the interface has to look like a NASA control panel
That's the tweaker mindset; we want access to everything.
Joe Average just wants a volume knob :D
Its called an advanced settings button
Those are scary, and don't work. People bumble into them, and then screw something up.
And Apple products work quite well.
You just have to do things *the way apple wants you to*.
For a lot of people, who don't care about technical details, that's fine.
No perfect world is there?
People like me obsess over "Should I arrange my MP3's by artist, album, songs, or artist - album, song? Should I use underscores in the name, or are spaces ok?", etc.
Joe Average just plugs everything into iTunes and forgets it. :D
I find myself somewhere in the middle these days
I no longer want to tweak everything every time but I want to be able to.
I still obsess over the mp3's, but I simply accept that I'm in the tiny minority. I've given up trying to "promote" linux; most people just don't want the kind of control that I do.
And it works out well for me; Since I don't know bugger-all about windows anymore, I don't have to help people with their incessant windows problems :D I just claim (and actually am) ignorance.
amen to that
I am so out of that game, I reject everything these days
I'd rather build a PCB now, than deal with people's problems and repairs
heh, the older and more knowledgeable you get, the less you need to interact with others, and the more you can just architecht your own little "perfect" world. :D
The plan is, once I get retired, and no longer have "job" type stuff to worry about, I can spend summers doing the outdoorsy stuff I like, and winters doing the open-source stuff.
sounds like a good plan
hey Scott. still got the same email?
I want to show you something
firstname.lastname@example.org works find.
on its way
That's pretty amazing
