I have chronic gout. Doc says less beer and less high protein foods should help. I looked up high protein foods and it's a mostly a list of my favourite, healthy foods. Whisky should be ok though...

You know is mighty impressive. Thousands of people all descend on one campus which gets quite crowded but it's very good natured, very well organised and best of all everyone's there to learn something new. I certainly did.

My old trusty EEE PC 1000H that operates as a home server needs to be retired. Being 32 bit it can no longer run centos when 6 reaches EoL later this year. But its hardware is bound to fail any day I fear.

But what to replace it with? Raspberry pi with attached storage? Duties are light, and its main use is to run NextCloud.

Suggestions welcome.

A new podcast episode of TuxJam is out. With Christmas in mind, the boys are discussing gifts for your geeky loved ones.

78 – Gifts for Geeks 2019 is out. Andrew (@mcnalu), Dave (@thelovebug) and @kevie talk about the array of gifts that they would love to wake up on morning to. We're pretty sure other geeks would appreciate these too tuxjam.otherside.network/?p=45

Stage 2 of my Amiga 3000 repair went well today. All traces of the ghastly akali from the leaky battery have been cleaned up with distilled vinegar, and two damaged sockets successfully removed despite some horribly corroded solder.

It's drying now after a thorough flush with water then isopropyl alcohol. Next I'll need to check for damaged traces but at a first assessment it's not as bad as I'd feared.

Thankd to @perloid for some his helpful advice earlier.

The Duffercast 17 is out, entitled Bleeding Nipples. Health warning: I might be heard singing. Featuring @thelovebug @chalkahlom@nu.federati.net @Moosical and the cool Swiss French guy whose handle I can't find here.

Trying out the @fedilab app. First impressions are good. I like how it auto completed my instance name in setting up my account. Quick and easy.

Thanks to everyone who came to @oggcamp@twitter.com and ESPECIALLY everyone who helped! I will be in recovery for a week but it was epic. I'm in Manchester till tomorrow. Tonight I will mostly be around the Pendulum hotel bar if anyone wants to catch up. #oggcamp

Weird. Seems my ISP makes accessing certain sites very slow eg inara.cz Can't imagine it's traffic shaping as the sites are low bandwidth, and not for streaming or suchlike.

The 16th (except it isn't) outpouring of claptrap has been released. Featuring the dulcet tones of inscius, @mcnalu, and @thelovebug.

Duffercast 16 - Carehome California

All the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order.

Setup a wireless printer on linux. Worked first time. Painless. Not ubuntu but slackware with lpr protocol. Good old CUPS.
