Like pork friend rice but with a smokier richness.
I’d been using vanilla Debian linux for my main workstation for the past few months. I got some kind of bizarro filesystem corruption a few days ago I couldn’t get myself out of. Missing superblocks and none of the backup blocks seemed to work.
Luckily I’d moved to a separate /home partition recently so I knew Continue reading
day off + no rain = laundry blitzkrieg
I was down to no clean jeans and one pair of underoos. I’m giving that thrift store washer (and line dryer) a workout today…

I packed my stuff in small boxes that fit neatly in the back of my ratty ex-fleet Ranger pickup. Many offers for help moving but some things are important to do alone. Time to think. Carrying every thing you own with your own hands.

Speaking of phone, I’ve been using T-Mobile PAYGO for about 10 years but prepaid doesn’t roam out here. So I switched to Airvoice, an ATT MVNO that gets good voice and data reception. Happy with them so far. Their website is tragic but the service and telephone CS are good. And cheap.
