It appears that I was quite good at documenting my work on the music player, so I’m up and running again now.
Previously I’ve used an old USB webcam (actually a PlayStation eyeToy Camera) as the scanner and it has worked fine. However I wanted something different in the long run, so yesterday I bought a camera module for the Raspberry Pi.
The main thing I’m doing tonight, apart from getting back to where I were, is to test whether this particular camera works or not. So far it has not been plug and play but maybe it was foolish of me to expect that. As I’m writing this I’m doing a apt-get update and apt-get upgrade and then I’ll have to do some configuration in raspi-config.
Also, I’m starting to get reaaaaaaally tired so I’ll probably call it a night pretty soon. I blame daylight savings time.
iOS 13 managed to turn inputting things into Remainders from a simple thing into an insanely enjoying one. Having to pause for a second between pressing return on one item and starting to write the next one is terrible when compiling a shopping list.
@stefp I agree about the eighties cliches. I still have a couple of episodes to go but I really enjoy it as a whole. The best thing about this third season compared to the second is that they seem to once again have realized that their biggest strength is Eleven and the actress playing her. My god, she is amazing!
@burk I’d like to see that as well. And I have a question as someone living it a country that is just staring to celebrate Halloween, and a country that is still struggling to realize when Halloween is supposed to be celebrated.
When is it usually that folks in the U.S and other traditional celebrators of Halloween start putting up their decorations? When are they torn down?
After having had it disconnected for a long time I’m currently plugging my DroboFS back in to migrate some files from it before finally sending it to a farm upstate and I gotta say, the slowness of something as simple as having it boot and connect to it makes me wonder why I ever got the damn thing.
We’re three episodes in on *Stranger Things* season three. So far the lows are lower than before because it gets sillier than usual but it’s also much more scary than previous seasons so I think I like it more than season two.
Every singer, no matter how technically skilled, has their voice change by time. Every singer but Robert Smith. I don’t understand how it’s possible for him to sound exactly the same today as he did twenty-five years ago.
