Dissonance

  • Contrast in the waiting room at the car dealer’s service department: A sad death scene in the movie on TV vs. polka-sounding video game music from a few chairs over. #
  • *sigh* I upgraded my Linux box to Fedora 12 in hopes that it would fix sound. Instead it broke suspend/resume – which I’d rather have on this system if I could only choose one. #

Wednesday Bits and Bytes

  • I finally uninstalled I Tweet. Twidroid Pro does enough that I don’t need two Twitter clients on my phone anymore. #
  • Grr. Since the last patch day, my USB keyboard randomly stops working 2–3 times/day. System Restore would be nice…if it actually worked. #
  • I’m trying to remember when the BOFH attitude prevalent on antispam mailing lists didn’t bother me. #
  • It’s weird how suddenly reporting spam turns into a bad thing because someone (else) might make money with that knowledge. #
  • How to fix Adobe AIR in Fedora 12. #

Audio, Social Worker Spam, & Prius Hatch

  • Fedora 12 claims PulseAudio improvements. Here’s hoping sound will actually work after suspend+resume again. #
  • Also: iPod train wreck of the morning was the Cardcaptor Sakura theme followed by Garbage’s Supervixen. #
  • What’s with all the “Be a social worker!” spam lately? It’s a change from the usual porn, pills, watches & software, but out of left field. #
  • Future reference: Though there’s no lever to pop the hatch on the Prius, unlocking the doors allows someone else to open it from outside #
