LR is back online!

The power was restored to the area.

No guaranty for how long until this storm is over..

If you haven't noticed LR has been up and down do to power outages from because the freeze here. So if it goes down again don't fear it will be back.

I think I found my new go to distro for desktop's and laptop's.

I just finished a Manjaro install. Super easy installer and for the first time everything worked out of the box on my laptop. Arch based so access to the AUR. I am super happy so far and will highly recommend.

I am just wondering why it has taken me this long to install it.

For all those interested in a LR podcast.

Is anyone interested i helping let me know and what you would interested in doing. Any part that you are interested in from being apart of the recording, editing, topic ideas really anyway you want to contribute.

I have also spun up a jitsi server if you would like a account on it let me know. I think it would be a good way to do the podcast.

Playing with my k40 laser and decided to try to etch a picture of my wife on wood. I really impressed how it came out on my first attempt etching.

Any suggestions.

I have 4x 48VDC servers I need to power in our rack. What are the hardware recommendations for the easiest way to do this.

The servers are in a standard datacenter 208vac.

I still keep toying around with starting a linuxrocks rag chew (general chat) podcast. There are already tons of podcast that gives you news and reviews but I was thinking more of a random round table of whomever joins the live to tell stories, experiences, and random thoughts on Linux and Tech.

If we did who would join the conversation, who would listen. What audio platform to join in on like discord, mumble, etc.

Note to self never again stick your hand in front of a 40 watt CO2 laser. Owch! LOL

I was aligning the mirrors and was not paying attention to were my hands were.

Anyone else have a co2 Laser cutter and has any tips?
I just gor a old k40 that the board was bad in. I replaced it with a cohesion3d board. I setup a atomicPi with lightburn and made my first cut and etch. This is a whole new realm for me as I am really good at 3D printing bur lasers are new. Suggestions?

Make sure to watch latest video!

Is GNOME 40 Inspired By WebOS? Might Be Palm Readers!

VMWare Cluster oh why did you have to crash on a Friday!

Entire cluster down! Friday afternoon. Sure its better for the users who want to get off early but damn sure not for me.


Open source Voting System

Politics aside if you were to create an open-source voting system how would you design it to be efficient, secure, and tamper-proof?

I was thinking of something like using blockchain This would create a provable mathematical audit trail for each transaction then. Combined that with using your SSN and a unique ID from the voter registration. You would have proof of every valid vote basically 2fa. Then data will be exported to a write-only USB drive once an hour.


I was hoping since you folks are advent streamers you may see things others don't. If you get a chance would you test out the streaming feature on

I am kind of up in the air on where I should set the number of transcode resolutions and threads too. The machine has lots of CPU and RAM and I can always throw more at it but not sure I need to or not. If you don't have time no worries I was just curious.

has been updated to version 3.0.1

I have turned on the ability to go live.

I have a request for any of the users. Please test and get back to me with the results. This instance is pretty beefy when it comes to resources but I am not sure how many transcoding resolutions I can do at once.

Please kick the tires on the live stream and let me know how it goes.

As many of you know I like to keep my worlds separate. I don't like bringing my work life, home or political life together. Which I have to thank the people on LR for keeping the local timeline mostly free from politics. We never stopped any decision or even had the need too. With that said I needed a place to vent about politics so I setup another instance dedicated for just that. If anyone would like to join your more than welcome. The instance is

It should concern everyone how the big tech companies can shutdown someone at a moment's notice effectively closing the doors on another company without any legal judgment. They became the judge jury and executioner.
