Linux convergence: Rainbow Taliban ruin everything

In the last few months I have standardized my machines on Debian testing. It works OK… but what has been happening is that things that used to be slow and not optimized well now run fast and the old systems are flakey. I’m now using kde as my environment over xfce because the reviewers were […]

Stats three ways.

I mistrust stat counters, and I have three of them. Slimstats says 1600 page views this month. Statcounter (which I think is the more reliable) also has 1600 page views. New Stats press has 1500 visitors and up 7800 page views, but 24K spiders. I’m a bit twitchy about enabling Jetpack from wordpress, Google Analytics, […]

Daybook.

I am putting my photos up at this site. It is still under construction, and will take a while to stabilize. In general, the photos I use here come from my phone. The photos there, however, are from trips with tripod, camera, and have been worked on. Our food budget is big. But our eating […]

Administrivia.

This is a semi regular update of where things are at. Firstly, and before discussing modifications, the current stats programs are wildly variant. For the last 30 days you get the following. Note that I did not install referrer spam until today, thus one of these things is not like the other. Visitors Page Views […]

Daily anklebiting book.

Not all anklebiters are trolls. Some are immature: all woke are functionally immature. But all trolls are anklebiters. I am getting an infestation of such here: note that all first comments are moderated and all comments go through automated spam checking — I don’t look at those automatically rejected. Multiple links will get you into […]

Daybook.

Adam Piggot (whose biography I’m reading, and it sticks to the classic rules for a bildungsroman) watched a couple of episodes of game of thrones so you don’t have to. It was awful when I stopped reading the books (the first novel is OK: stop then). It is worse now. Martin cannot finish the book, […]

Daybook.

I eat basically anything that is not sugar. Low sugar makes me cranky, high sugars make me sleepy and inattentive. However, my beloved has a pile of things that he reacts to, and is getting more worried, to the point of following Dr Gundry. He irritates the hell out of me: Too much pseudoscience and […]

Daybook.

Firstly, some (boring) administration. I’ve moved back to a classic theme, because it’s easier to read everything at once. The problem with this is that I don’t post multiple times a day: instead I do a lectionary post and then pile of things that I find during the day. So… if you dislike this. Comment. […]

Some administration: I have made statcounter summary counts public, added a privacy page, and will soon add a commenting page. The theme currently does not allow for extracts only. This means the page is long. I am adding google analytics. The theme is now Twenty eleven light, with the correct licence up. FInally, the lectionary […]
