2 things. One is longer than the other so I'll start with the shorter.
Yeah - I love it. So much better than a KVM switch, in my opinion.
When I'm at work I do almost everything on my linux box. But it's nice to have my mac next to it for email and calendar.
I haven't posted in a bit. I was travelling and then busy when I got back.
I spent a week-end in Vajta and then a few days later I was in Athens for a week. Greece is a very pretty place. The weather was fantastic. Vajta was also really nice. Here in Hungary we are getting into fall and that may be my favorite season. Growing up in the Southwest I didn't experience such a high degree of change every year and I'm really loving it now.
Google struggles dealing with people who are in one place but want to use a language from another place.
It's gotten better in chrome on a computer. I can pretty much search in chrome and get my results in English. But on android it's a mess.
When I search in Android Chrome - I get google.hu and I haven't found a way to get it to use google.com
No - it isn't. That's funny. I did that pretty late at night.
All my personal sites got messed up and I had to fix them a week or two ago.
I enquired about when subscription renewal would be available again and the reply I got was that the subscription process will not be coming back. Must not make enough income to make it worthwhile. I liked seeing stories a little early and would try to quickly email and warn of dupes when I could. But it is a business. So it goes.
Went with some friends tonight to watch Hungary play Northern Ireland in their Euro Cup qualifier match.
It was held at Groupama Arena. It was my first time there and it is a very nice facility. We bought lower priced tickets but it still felt like we were very close, especially compared to what it is like at Ferenc Puskás Stadium.
Take my money please.
I know there are methods to remove the ads - but I have to say that when they planned this out they did it right. I've never felt a need to remove it from mine. They only show up on the home screen (where they are crazy small) and on my screen saver thing. When I'm reading there is no difference. I really don't spend any significant amount of time not actually "in" books on the thing so I forget about it. Every so often it will remind me to connect to wi-fi if I haven't done so in a long time but if it really helps keep the cost of the readers down I don't mind it at all.
I think that calibre plus the kindle means that I have access to pretty much everything. It's like having the worlds largest library in my home. And since I don't live in a country that has libraries with books in my native language that's a pretty nice thing.
And I have moved enough that I really don't want physical books much any more. There are instances where they are better but for anything I'd read as a paperback I much prefer electronic now.
I modded up some of our discussions (by our I mean our little(r) circle here) last week or something like that.
What's funny is the drive I found in the office is throwing some errors too so I just ordered a new one.
For $70 you can get a fantastic e-ink reader. The 6 inch kindle with offers is $69.
Team that up with Calibre on a PC and you are all set. That is how I do all my reading now.
The drive died but not before I got copied what I wanted copied. Clonezilla failed and then it just totally tanked. So I just put in the drive I was trying to clone over to and did a fresh install. Now I'm copying back some stuff.
My Slashdot subscription ended and you can't buy it any more. The page seems to say this is temporary but I wonder if that is going away?
Booted up my Fedora box at work this morning but instead of starting normally it put me in emergency mode with a message to check the logs. On the whole I'm very pleased with this development. It gave me a prompt to give it the root password and then I could view the logs with journalctl from there.
