Recording: Stephen Paul Taylor (SPT) live at WABE Berlin 2013-11-14 2014-03-07 No Comments

I had this material laying on my hard disk for a while, thinking what to do with it, because the quality of the recording is… rather “moderate”. I guess it’s of most value if you actually have been there that night — to bring back a dear memory. So this is Stephen Paul Taylor (SPT) live […]

Fwd: Jay Z unplugged 2014-02-05 No Comments

While I’m usually not into Hip-hop much, browsing MTV Unplugged audio CDs made me bump into Jay Z’s take on this, backed by The Roots. The album is great fun, highly recommended. There seem to be versions including video on YouTube but my impression is that it’s a cleaned version: there’s no “shit” or even […]

Masking bad RAM with Grub2 2012-04-20 1 Comment

I recently ran into the situation that during installation of some packages in Debian the display started showing graphic errors and the root file system reported to be read only (as it was configure to switch to read-only on errors through its mount options). memtest86+ first complete pass showed no errors at all but later […]

New shoes? New shoes! 2012-04-10 2 Comments

I have never blogged about shoes before. So let’s see what it’s like. After all for being shoes these make me quite happy right now. Shoes! My old sneaker’s started to die so with a single pair of shoes only I had to do something. I liked the fresh look of the red ones so […]

A logo for Backup Awareness Day? (24th each month) 2011-07-31 No Comments

I had the idea of visualizing “backup” as “back up” and e-mail this logo draft for Backup Awareness Day to Stephanie Booth a few days ago. I got an away autoreply back for now. I’m curious if she’ll adopt, modify and adopt or reject it. Before she decides you get a chance to see it […]

Chinese Chess (Xiangqi) for “western” people 2009-04-22 No Comments

To ease things up a bit using “western” pieces can help, especially as most pieces have (close) equivalents in regular chess. In contrast to a hardware game, in software changing pieces can be an easy thing. The small script I made […]
