The Ted Greene Archives volunteers were able to clean up the audio on these amazing videos of Ted playing during his 1993 gig at the Seashell restaurant in Woodland Hills. I did see Ted once during that time, and it's great to have these videos of a master at work.

@mattdm This is mostly lanolin (from sheep gland secretions). Hence the smell.

Now that I have my first company computer since before COVID, my use of Linux and BSD will be more extracurricular.

On Friday I kept the personal laptop running OpenBSD all day because it's better behaved when it comes to reliably suspending and resuming.

Again, if you haven't run OpenBSD on the desktop in years, things have come a very long way.

On the Windows 11 work laptop, I was ready for a fight with IT over installing Vim. They already didn't want to "let" me run LibreOffice because we are supposed to use Google Apps for everything officey.

I avoided the conflict by trying to install Vim to my user directory. I vaguely remembered doing that years ago, and surprisingly it worked.

I did the same with IrfanView. Also successful.

Curiously, SSH works out of the Windows Terminal.

I'd like an FTP client. I didn't know if that's "allowed." I will be looking into PSCP.

@vwbusguy I haven't looked at Nextcloud in a long time. I'm looking at what is involved. I already use Syncthing for file sync, but that doesn't have a web interface. This could be a fun thing to play with on the Raspberry Pi 4B

@vwbusguy I can't find recommended specs for . I did see something about SD cards not being recommended for storage, which I totally understand. My current Pi server uses a USB flash drive for storage, but I'm not against using a regular USB drive (spinning or SSD).

@viktor @vwbusguy Thanks for these links

@vwbusguy It's so easy to set the RPi 4B to boot from USB. My brief experience with FreeBSD booting from USB wasn't great, but I don't think USB had anything to do with it. I need to set up a Raspberry Pi OS system on USB and give that a go.
