Lol our catsitter (who is also a friend) messaged me saying that she just had an interview for a job at a vet clinic and she said she was "experienced at handling animals and Burmese cats". 😂

Patch fixing critical Log4J 0-day has its own vulnerability that’s under exploit. If you've patched using Log4J 2.15.0, it's time to update again.

@cefiar made raspberry sauce this evening so we had some drizzled over chocolate brownie and soy ice cream. Holy hell it's good!

Not sure why, but there is a duck in our back yard.

I spent the best part of the day taking apart and putting back together a mechanical calculator which I inherited from my grandfather.

The brand is Antares. I found a page jaapsch.net/mechcalc/antares.h with some info:

"In 1940 Paolo Pozzi founded his company Organizzazione Pozzi S.p.A., in Milan. It supplied office machines, such as typewriters and calculators, not only by importing foreign machines including the Precisa adding machines, but also by manufacturing their own. These machines were given the brandname Antares, which is the name of the brightest star in the constellation Scorpio, and use a star-shaped logo."

"The first calculator model, the P1, was released in 1940 or 1941”

The page goes on to describe the difference with the later models P2, P3 and P4 and based on that description, my machine is a P1, so it is 80 years old.

Look at this wonderful 1970s fabric we found as the base layer on a pelmet that's been sitting in a cupboard since we moved in!

Anyone in Melbourne interested in this old iPAQ 3630? Touchscreen doesn't work, not got the original stylus, has the protective sled & the battery/CF card sled, leather case, & 2 cradles (Serial & USB). No power supply (cable from old PSU takes 5VDC) and both batteries (in unit and in sled) are dead. Unit powers up on external 5VDC supply.

If no takers, going in the bin.

Mucked about with some modems during lunch break. Have now managed to dial from one modem to another using my old router as a telephone exchange/pabx substitute. The old router has 2 phone ports for VoIP, and you can dial between them without it being connected to anything else but power (default config). Pretty noisy lines for V.34, but it actually works!
