Ah, and Macbook I have on my desk boots in SBC way.

I had uefi aarch64 system in 2014. Booting RHEL 7, Debian, Fedora same way as my x86-64 system did.

Out of the box. 9 years ago.

SBC world is still not there.

I am tired of people complaining about how Arm systems boot in a strange way:

"firmware in particular lacks standardisation on ARM (like everything on ARM)... Everybody seems to do it differently... Hopefully it can be more like UEFI/x86_64 some day and have a standard way like fwupd..."

SBC vendors helped a lot to get us to this situation. Even U-Boot can boot in sane way thanks to generic distro config. But that's need to be enabled and used.

Danke, dass du in Mannheim warst, @ralphruthe 🤩 - leider war die Schlange kurz nach 16Uhr schon so lang, dass ich 16:45 gehen musste ohne einer Signatur auch nur einen Meter näher gekommen zu sein 😭

Today i got a survey about "activities aimed at protecting against oblivion and preserving for future generations the remains of the digital culture of the era of early home computers, covering in particular the years 80's and the first half of the 90's."

I think that such preservation is worthwhile thing. What about you?

Daily "git remote update", and greeted by a stream of
Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
It is also possible that a host key has just been changed.

Apparently Github has updated its RSA host key...

My daughter (15y) says it can't be hard to get the orientation of the LEDs right, as their legs have different lengths.
Time to introduce SMT in school...

On my way to the Netherlands. It's been a while since last time I was there.

YouTube TV became another cable TV provider - expanded the channel lineup to hundreds. Added new features like "multiview" NBA and other sports games.

Hey, Google, you know about us pretty much everything - have you ever seen me watch a single sports game???

My use of YouTube TV is limited to recording the new episodes of The Simpsons, Family Guy, Bob's Burger and Rick and Morty. Paying that much money for this is simply crazy - time to cancel!


So, several days ago it was announced that YouTube TV is hiking the price again for its base tier from $65 to $73 a month.

Back when it was a new service 6 years ago, it was touted as a "cord cutting" solution - don't pay $100+ for lots of cable channels you don't watch, pay only $35 here for what you need!


Conjunctivitis again.

Expect less activity from me during next days.

If someone is fan of Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 then there is mechanical alternative: Perixx ERGO Mechanical PERIBOARD-535.

Not played with it, got info from a friend.

Added Snapdragon 8 gen 1 into AArch64 Soc features table.

Looks like this SoC has SVE but not always announced.

May your desk gremlins always be this decorative!

Uf. Finally TF-A got Neoverse-N1 support for qemu-sbsa merged.

One less thing to keep forked.
