    Nice wingtips, dude. I got a couple pairs of them... Hardly anyone wears leather shoes any more. Mostly it's athletic sneaker looking stuff. Clutter

    Vid Card FAILURE!

    Now, is that a sledge hammer or a maul? Or maybe some sort of axe? Someone should axe him about that... Guess it's a little too big to put in the trash masher? Clutter

    Browser poll at Debian forums

    I didn't see this poll and get to vote- but my fave is also Firefox. Familiar and pretty easy to use. I've dabbled with others but none so far have knocked FF out of first place here. Clutter
  8. Funny, Eric- The ignition key to my old 90's Chevy van looks sorta like that- except- mine looks like it was gnawed on by steel toothed beavers. It's the polar opposite of yours, with your one little nick. Nine has only about half the material left in the grinding area. Clutter

    Bye Bye Pulse Audio

    I never had a problem with Pulse Audio until it was blocking updates to GNOME desktop. Sound quality with Pipewire seems ok for casual use.

    Bye Bye Pulse Audio

    pipewire-audio is a metapackage that includes pipewire-pulse which is basically a bridging program so applications which only output to PulseAudio can output to Pipewire. It emulates PA. Now we can all become Pipewire haters instead! I've come to terms with PulseAudio in Bullseye. I don't love it but have it working acceptably, even though I use JACK as default and need PA > JACK bridge for all PA audio. I also have a siduction install on the same computer and have been grappling to implement some of my desired tweaks in PW. Almost there but still a couple of niggles (you can find a 3 page thread on LinuxMusicians forum about that). PW has still not proven itself as capable enough with very low latency audio production setups.

    Hey, nice radio shack you got set up there. Brings back memories. I used to be an authorized Yaesu and Motorola radio tech back in my glory daze.

    Bye Bye Pulse Audio

    Well technically you could of always done so. There is Alsa, OSS, etc.

    I reckon this still relates to the gettin' old topic...

    The pc in the hamster shack is wired directly but on my laptop, I still use wicd-curses.
  18. In Debian Testing, the newer sound server Pipewire has been introduced. This takes over from Pulse Audio but keeps Pulse Audio on the system and acts as its sound server. Serving the server? When I did the latest upgrades I found that packages gnome and gnome-core were being held back, not upgraded. After some searching I discovered that the latest version of GNOME is now incompatible with Pulse Audio. The solution is to install the package pipewire-audio which puts in direct support for ALSA and purges Pulse Audio from the system. After a reboot you can then upgrade gnome and gnome-core and sound still works. So for all you Pulse Audio haters it is now possible to get rid of it for good.

    I personally prefer netctl which comes with wifi-menu to connect to wifi on my laptops. On my desktop, I use systemd-networkd as it just works.
  20. BAHAHA! I drive (when I can afford tag/insurance) a 1982 Chevy Pickup and a 1996 Chevy Suburban. The doors open using old tech... it looks like this:

    Yes. I highly recommend WICD. Sadly, I don't use it anymore. I can't remember why not. It was something to do with the VPN I was using a few years back. It required a "tweaked" Network Manager app to work. I'm still using that Network Manager app, actually. I'm not using a VPN anymore, though.

    Nah... no reason for that. You're still alive and kickin' and pumpin' air. Smile about that every morning... and be HAPPY you're still here.
  23. And here is a much earlier US first generation diesel - RS1 first manufactured in 1941. This one was made by Alco - one of the great steam locomotive manufacturers. Alco went out of business in 1969 but its Canadian subsidiary lasted until the mid 1980s.

    I can relate.
  25. These guys are really thinking outside the box!
