On Saturday, I sadly bid adieu to my grandmother. Although I have accepted the reality of it- I still want to call her at least once a week, as it’s been so long since I heard from her (She passed in December, but we put off her final rites so all family might attend, even though they were unable.)

She’d have enjoyed the trip up- the stay was memorable- it reminded me of times staying in her quite rural cabin in Fox, Montana- it didn’t even have indoor plumbing- in the late 80s. She sold that and gave the proceeds to my uncle decades ago.

This is the first time I stayed in this specific cabin at Jolley Camper– it had two overhead fans, a working heater (just don’t run that and the TV or microwave at the same time), and a half-sized hot water heater- which ought to be enough for anyone. Talk about spoiled!


Back home, I’ve got a lot of real life to catch up on. I’m officially dropping my ideology of posting something every (other) day, because I’m already faltering, and often have nothing that I consider worthy of sharing with the world.

Even though I’ve forced myself to “stay thin”, to support my aging hardware, I just can’t survive in 60 (55) gigs, even if it is on an EFI based multi-core system.

A fully-functional light distribution with browser, git, gcc, and all other build tools just can’t survive when you get into working on large distributables.

I’ve got two incompatible LEDE/OpenWRT trees, my own local src-packages, and that doesn’t even involve my own native code (which can fit in a couple megs these days), or the standard glibc and linux headers- I won’t even mention crosscompiling into musl targets.

I give up- SSDs and Core2s just can’t get me by. Eventually I’ll have to buy something newer- but until then, a 320GB 7200RPM SATA will have to do, even if it takes 100x as long.

You make a script with a simple flat database to alert you when you need to get your cars smogged, because it’s easier to decide for myself when it should be done, rather than rely on the DMV postcard/email notification to work.

I’ve added it to my initial login shells so I see it once per newlogin per day. It’s relatively simple in design, and works well for those like me who find their memory isn’t quite as sharp as it once was.

< 1999 9-3 Convertible is PAST DUE (April 15th, 2017)!
= Can renew 2008 9-5 2.3T now!
> Can renew 2000 9-5 Aero on August 6th, 2017.
- 2008 9-3 Turbo X is not up for renewal for over 6 months.
- 2001 9-3 Convertible is not up for renewal for over 6 months.

I’ve coded the responses to be easily read. “Less Than” means overdue, an equal sign shows that it can be reregistered now, “Greater Than” for time in the future, and a minus for a time more than 6 months in the future.

The 1999 isn’t registered as it isn’t roadworthy- yet. It needs a new headgasket and is currently non-op.

Not only do we have an incredible amount of added fees thanks to the idiots who manage Reno- with gas taxes over 20c higher than every other county bordering us, but we’re now paying more sales tax than Las Vegas.
