  • Though your brother's bound and gagged And they've chained him to a chair Won't you please come to Chicago Just to sing

    In a land that's known as freedom How can such a thing be fair Won't you plaese come to Chicago For the help we can bring

    We can change the world - Re-arrange the world It's dying - to get better

  • Bannon vows Trump’s opponents will be prosecuted in a second term | CNN Politics
  • What makes Bannon so sure he would be one to benefit from a second Trump presidency? He could just as well be persecuted. Trump shows no allegiance to anyone and is happy to throw his supporters under the bus when expedient.

  • MTV is turning 43
  • Music Television doesn't necessarily have to be showing videos, but showing something at least tangentially related to music would be nice. MTV is now what every channel is: put whatever is required in front of the viewer to sell ads. All channels are the same shit now.

  • My wildflowers were mowed down!

    Last week my landscaper mowed down the mostly perennial, but a few annual wildflowers I was growing from seed. The landscape thought they were weeds because they were mostly not flowering yet (and there were a few weeds in there as well). So now what do I do? I have been watering it every day to see if I can grow some of the plants back. I put a lot of seed down, I hope something will last.

    Creating a self-contained binary

    www.github.com GitHub - profdc9/fldigi: fldigi repository with SCAMP

    fldigi repository with SCAMP. Contribute to profdc9/fldigi development by creating an account on GitHub.

    I have a program (fldigi, pointed to by the github link) that uses dozens of shared libraries. I would like to be able to distribute a pre-compiled version of the program for testers. I could require each tester to install the shared libraries and compile the program for themselves, however, this would be extremely difficult for most users. What are some options for distributing a pre-compiled version of a linux program? Do I need to make a package for common distributions or common versions of each distribution? How about snap, nix, or flatpak? I don't have much experience with using docker or preparing docker containers, and the particular program (fldigi) requires access to system hardware to function, which a containerized version would have to accommodate.

    This is going to be a temporary solution and I hope once the program is done being tested, my changes can be pulled upstream and then distributions will include it that way.

    Eclipse Poster

    I made a poster of my eclipse photos taken in southern Illinois. The PDF of the poster is downloadable as a 24 by 36 inch poster.

    Is this a boondoggle or is it actually useful investment?

    It seems to me these giant grants to a small number of organizations (Climate United Fund, Coalition for Green Capital, Power Forward Communities) seems like it could be delivering pork to well-connected people. Is this actually going to produce "clean" energy and help disadvantaged people? These seem like very large awards to a small number of organizations.

    Planting perennial and annual seeds together?

    I would like to get plots started with perennial flower seeds. However, it seems like the weeds will overgrow the plots while the perennial seeds get started.

    Could I mix perennial and annual flower seeds and have the annuals try and crowd out the weeds while the perennials take root and come back next year more strongly? Or will the annual seeds prevent the perennial seeds from growing?

    I'm having so much fun making this I thought I would share.

    I am working on a simple, cheap, easy to construct multi-effects guitar pedal based on the Raspberry Pi Pico microcontroller. All of the other parts are generic parts. So far I have implemented the following effects:

    Noise gate, Delay, Room, Combine Effects, Bandpass Filter, Lowpass Filter, Highpass Filter, Allpass Filter, Tremolo, Vibrato, Wah, Autowah, Envelope, Distortion, Overdrive, Ring Modulator, Flanger, Chorus, Phaser, Backwards (play the last few samples backwards), Pitch Shift, and Octave (rectification).

    Some effects can be cascaded inside the device. There are up to 16 "units" where each processing stage can process the results of the last stage. Various controls on the effects can be assigned to the four potentiometers at the bottom of the board, or two expression pedals you can plug into the side.

    I also added a VGA output because I want to have a cool video display that changes with the audio. Also, perhaps implement some kind of guitarsynth or MIDI control.

    Anyways this has been a lot of fun to make. I hope others will enjoy it too.

    For the past few days I've been working on a 3-D printable footpedal potentiometer to be used in a guitar pedal. It is a parametric model in FreeCAD. It has a top and bottom that hinge together, with a potentiometer that is coaxial with the hinge so that when the pedal is pressed, the potentiometer is rotated.
