Started tidying up my Sisters bootleg collection in iTunes (or Apple Music, as it's now called) :D

Tagged them all with the genre of "live", and have found that creating smart playlists which filter on the band name and the genre, combined with "album title contains [year]" breaks it down nicely, and really helps me see what I have and don't have :D :wake:

Sidenote: I may be trawling the Sharing section soon... ;)

Well this is impressive. My PC at work is still switched on as I need to be able to shell into it while working from home. However I daren't trigger a reboot remotely just in case it doesn't come back up so...

Code: Select all

$ uptime
 15:51:25 up 210 days, 24 min, 21 users,  load average: 0.30, 0.18, 0.11
(The 21 users are because I've got that many sessions running within GNU screen terminal multiplexer.)

Like they say, Linux needs to be rebooted about as often as Windows needs to be reinstalled ;D

Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to stay up for 210 days is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

:lol: :lol:

I managed to order most of my bootlegs by year of recording, but some of those pesky bootleggers insist on doing multi-year compilations which bugger up my simplistic indexing and send me to drink muttering 'it was never offside and Pickford should have been sent off' and when will this sentence ever end.

CG - a petabyte of storage. I've never seen a petabyte of storage before - it's surprisingly small. Like, you'd fit it in one server rack kind of small. AND IT'S ALL MINE! (cackle)

I still remember the first hard drive I saw, about 50cm by 50cm by 25cm and it stored an incredible 10 whole megabytes! :lol:

In the middle of some eBay transaction i suddenly received a message across the screen saying:

"Congrats. You've just listed spam and eggs from the cow's perspective (paperback).
Check your listing or sell another item."

... :lol: :lol: :lol: ... Heaven knows, could be true.I'm looking for a tablet or a surface and they all are datasuckers and expensive.

But still ... :?: :!: ...Where can such a message come from?

I ran a search and found this website ... but I'don't dare to click on anything there.
https://ebay.github.io/mindpatterns/mes ... index.html

Any opinions, please ...
