I’ve been a linux user for at least 15 years, almost half of my life. Accessing my linux distribution has always come through putty or a mac terminal line. But it seems putty’s days are number as bash is coming to windows. Now I’ll be able to SSH easily into my servers and do my web-development.
Tonight is the first night in 10 years where I haven’t had my work laptop, or personal laptop with me. When I left the office tonight, I put them in my drawer because I had to run some errands and I don’t like keeping my laptop in my car,especially after my car got broken into in SF. But, I never made it back to the office tonight. It feels sorta nice and sorta weird at the same time. I guess it gives me more time to read the NYT and watch Netflix from my phone.

For the past few nights my Lenovo desktop (B40-30) has been turning itself on automatically in the middle of the night. At first I thought perhaps the power button was depressed by a book next to the computer. I checked and that wasn’t the case. After searching google I’ve found that this is a common problem experienced in Windows 10.

It turns out my wifi driver was set to automatically turn-on my desktop if prompted by wifi. This problem was solved by turning off the option to allow my desktop to be waked by the wifi network, which was checked.
The likelihood of traveling frequently by plane and not having luggage damaged by mishandling is very low, making it important to invest in well-designed luggage backed by a good warranty policy. Briggs and Riley manufactured luggage fits both of these criteria, which I was introduced to by a sales associate while visiting Harrods in London. I purchased the Baseline, U122CX a two-wheel carry on meeting the dimensional requirements for most airlines I fly on. The four-wheel bag might have been more maneuverable but I felt the space trade-off made for the four-wheel bag was too great.
The bag is extremely well-constructed with a garment system built-in to keep a suit from being wrinkled, a clever expansion system that compresses the bag by 25%, and parts that can be easily replaced. I’m very happy with my purchase and plan to buy more Briggs and Riley products in the future.
The Amtrak tragedy is unfortunate and we shouldn’t rush to conclusions on why the accident occurred until the investigation is completed by the NTSB. I enjoy traveling on trains, I’ve used Amtrak Acela service, Eurostar, French TGV, Taiwan High Speed Rail, and Italian High Speed Rail. Train service needs to be expanded and faster, routes between places like Boston, MA and Burlington, VT take an entire workday and this is unacceptable. Fast train service will provide more flexibility by enabling more weekend trips and reducing carbon emissions. Improving our national rail infrastructure will require investment by the government and/or private entities.
No one should ever be without a whiteboard in their house, in my case I need it to jot down my thoughts and perform calculations.
I’ve been to Atlanta a few times now and I must say I rather enjoy it.
I recently took Amtrak Acela from New York to Boston, and I have to say I really enjoyed my trip. Train service in the United States must be high speed and comfortable, the northeast corridor is paving the way.
Back to using Micro-controllers assembled my Adafruit LCD board, and attached it to my Pi. Using the GPIO inputs as well. Take a look:
