Support ticket: Can't SSH into my machine.

Weird, I just set that box up the other day and I did half of the work over SSH. I remember noticing a build script pulled a really old public key of mine and I updated that while I was at it.

Me: "Hmm, have you changed anything SSH server config?"

User: Ah, maybe that's the problem I need to install the SSH server.

Me: No I did that when I set the system up.

User: I formatted and reinstalled the whole system yesterday.

Me: ...

The second worst thing about April 1 is all the stupid and unfunny prank articles going by all morning.

The worst thing is that tomorrow the Americans wake up on their side of the planet and the whole thing starts again.

Running my Pinecil off of solar power via an inverter (I have a 12v USB-PD socket ordered but it's still in transit) so I can work on the cabling for the solar panel setup. Solar soldering! Glad to know I'll be able to do electronics repairs on the road. :awesome:

This is pushing the nerdery pretty hard even for me, I think.

I now own 400 colourful plastic balls. Please subsidise my ball habit by buying tickets to my show. I will spend all the money on more balls.

I hope when they free that ship it immediately becomes stuck again just a little further up the canal, because joking about it has been such a positive bonding experience for us all.

I couldn't find my Bluetooth headphones this morning, so had to resort to a backup wired set and didn't realise until this moment the issues that come with combining them with a mask. Which one goes on first, for a start?

I expect this could be another toilet paper roll under/over debate with strong opinions on both sides.

I parked at the Melbourne Museum last night, and at least one of their payment machines is running a non-activated copy of Windows.

Spent any three hours (including setup and cleanup) with my apple smashing tools under the tree and have just shy of 10 litres of precious juice to show for it.

I have barely made a dent in the fruit still on the tree. I reckon if I can find a spare day when the weather's ok, I could fill the big fermenter.
