Queues Galore

Trying to find something reliable that doesn't cause problems and couldn't remember the name, then I found this site. I use Redis for a project at work since it allows me to make a bunch of simpler programs all work together across machines, rather than I giant one.

Expiring Shows

A Touch of Frost- 26 Days left. The first couple of episodes sucked, but it finally picked-up and I actually want to watch the remaining.

http://www.hulu.com/grid/a-touch-of-frost?video_type=episode

http://www.crackle.com/odyssey-5/ - 27 Days left. Another one that is pretty good for what it is. A reasonable Sci-Fi series from 10 years ago, but with a bit of unnecessary nudity since it was on a premium channel.

Intel Motherboards

As a rule, I only buy AMD and ASUS, but my collection of computers does include 2 Intel Motherboards. Finally, got the aforementioned system to boot. I had a SATA card since the Intel Motherboard doesn't support 2 TB drives. On a hunch I looked through my pile of junk and installed a card I got for a few bucks at Surplus Gizmos. Ubuntu actually installed and completely booted. As a plus, it now shows the drive in the BIOS boot messages.

14.04 to 16.04 32bit

Don't. Do a fresh install instead. When you hear complaints about systemd, that is why. Unbootable and unrecoverable.

A Sample of the fun: update-rc.d: warning: start and stop actions are no longer supported; falling back to defaults insserv: warning: script 'S03powernowd.early' missing LSB tags and overrides initctl: Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused insserv: warning: script 'screen-cleanup' missing LSB tags and overrides insserv: Default-Start undefined, assuming empty start runlevel(s) for script `screen-cleanup' insserv: Default-Stop undefined, assuming empty stop runlevel(s) for script `screen-cleanup' insserv: warning: script 'vncserver' missing LSB tags and overrides insserv: warning: script 'powernowd.early' missing LSB tags and overrides initctl: Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused insserv: warning: script 'binfmt-support' missing LSB tags and overrides insserv: Default-Start undefined, assuming empty start runlevel(s) for script `binfmt-support' insserv: Default-Stop undefined, assuming empty stop runlevel(s) for script `binfmt-support' insserv: There is a loop between service monit and vncserver if stopped insserv: loop involving service vncserver at depth 2 insserv: loop involving service monit at depth 1 insserv: Stopping vncserver depends on monit and therefore on system facility `$all' which can not be true! insserv: exiting now without changing boot order! update-rc.d: error: insserv rejected the script header dpkg: error processing package autofs (--install):

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of autofs5:

Mesh Travel Bag

I love this idea and probably buy it if I actually travelled. You hang it up and it unfolds to reveal your bathroom stuff.

Sugar Battery

My wife read a vague article in Car and Driver the other day. Found a more specific source and it looks good. Meets a lot of criteria like non-toxic, non-explosive, fast replenishment, energy density and apparently cheap. But I imagine they need to denature it, otherwise you might end up at the side of the road fuel-less, but intoxicated. Diesel has a similar problem.

Ripping Yarns

A long time ago, I got a disk with this and a formatting utility on it for the C64. I ran the music demo and then proceeded to run the formatter by a sys 49152
