today's harvest

(viewed 1602 times)
1.2Kg of raspberries - there's at least three more kilo+ harvests coming over the next couple of weeks too. Our raspberry canes PRODUCE.

HORSERADISH! Strong enough to make my eyes water just when I was peeling it. I dread to think how hot any sauce will be.

what's the collective noun for linuxes?

Anyway, I have a lot. Left to right, top to bottom: Slax 5.1.8 'Popcorn' liveCD; gOS 3.0; Forensic and Incident Response Environment; Ubuntu 64bit; Damn Small Linux (entire OS boots from a single floppy!); Good Ole' Debian; Vector Linux Light; Symphony OS, with the revolutionary Mezzo desktop; an Xubuntu (superceded by Vector for speed/lightness); Arch and a ZoneMinder liveCD (Mandriva powered).

That's most of the distros I am currently using/considering/recently given up on.

digital TV - what the blazes?

(viewed 1172 times)
Telly people - what is this all about? Our TV isn't connected to anything for transmitting signals, it can only receive them. Where is it searching? Will it ever download anything, and if so, how? (no upstream means no error-checking, no requests to re-start transfer or re-transmit that missed packet, etc.)

Seriously, what the hell?
