    Snitches, Cleaning, Linux, PS4, PC

    By Derek | April 19, 2020

    A great Sunday. (19th)

    Slept in a bit today. 

    I can’t believe NY Gov Cuomo is asking neighbors to snitch on each other. That is very, very un-American. It’s OK, though, the Twitterverse is taking care of it. Just search twitter for “311-692”. 

    Still working on cleaning my office. I “discovered” an old Win98 era laptop and had to dig out my old CDs to get some data off. Apparently, Win98, even though it has USB support, cannot read my USB flash drive, so I needed to boot from a Linux CD (Knoppix 5.x) in order to use the USB flash drive. 

    I forgot to mention that our niece brought me a PS4 to borrow, for a time. It’s the one I repaired for them, since they had already replaced it, it’s kind of an extra for them at this point. Of course, she forgot to bring a controller for me to use. Well, I got one from her today, but it seems that the D-Pad isn’t working. Oh well. I was able to use the analog stick to navigate the menus to download the Nathan Drake: Uncharted series that Sony’s giving away right now. I’ve never played any of the Uncharted games (I’ve never owned a PlayStation) so I’m looking forward to it. 

    Started working on putting together a PC for our older son. He doesn’t have one right now. One of the difficulties I’m going to have is that the video card I’m going to give him doesn’t have any HDMI ports, only DVI. The monitor I need to give him is only VGA, though… I’m pretty sure I have a DVI => VGA adapter around somewhere I can give him. 

    Jill made a great dinner tonight, nachos with meat, beans and cheese, but she sliced me up some fresh avocados to eat with it. 

    We took our older son to work tonight, then back home. 

    Time for bed.
