Cottage Diary

Friday - came up late, traffic not too bad, took the 407.  Raining at the boat, and mosies were terrible.  Stupid boat had to the bilge pump stuck on full, and battery was dead.  Good thing I could use my little lithium battery booster.  Worked great.  Got to the cottage, busted olive oil bottle, yuck.  Couldn't fix the pump.  Will have to use the pack to start it again.

Saturday - had a fire overnight.  Neighbour picked me up to go fishing for lake trout.  Hundreds seen on the sonar, not one nibble.  Bugs are horrible, waiting for the dragonflies.  Bring on the air force!

Lake trout brought in by my neighbour.  They got it while paddling.

Irony - Crooks take over crooks


When you are a crook you can't find good help.  So, all the absentee, money-laundering, sealed condo people aren't around to check if the condo corp is legit.  So these types of people move in for all the condos.  The coming crash will shake this out, perhaps.

Linux 4.12

I've just loaded rc2.  I always try the latest versions, but I always wait until rc2.  I've noticed the fastest boot time yet to first keystroke.  Almost Chromebook level.  Try that with the latest win and latest laptop.  OMG!  It's painful.  I'm about to prep up the cottage laptop, and I'll see how this works.

ps. the old Acer laptop works great, but you have to go with 'make localmodconfig' if you want it to compile in this century.  :)
