Also more options:

* Resetting CMOS, nothing changes

* Installed a GPU (an HD6670) instead of IGP, nothing changes

The current board installed is a GA-B85M-D3V, previous board was an H81M-P33. (which I still have, but swapping is a PITA so I try to keep changing to a minimum when debugging) CPU is a G3220, and have tried a G3258.

PROTIP: When someone tells you building PCs is easy, they neglect to tell you what isn't is the fucking computer Kreminology that is consumer electronics debugging.

Lazyweb: I'm trying to debug this PC I've had for a while that just doesn't work. It was spontaneously rebooting for a while, then it just got to the point it reboots at firmware screens now.

* Removed disk, nothing changes

* Swapped PSU, nothing changes.

* Swapped CPU, nothing changes

* Swapped mobo, nothing changes

* Swapped RAM, nothing changes

* Removed mobo from case & started with a screwdriver, nothing changes

I've replaced the system, but I'd like to know why it doesn't work. Why?

Wired: Calling MPEG4 videos "GIFs"

My theory about Google Groups: they desperately want to kill it, but they don't want another Reader fiasco where everyone hates them for it.

So instead they just gradually make the product worse and worse; eventually once they finally do kill it everyone hates it so much that they're just relieved.

Looks like Vanilla 2.5 came out; will have to plan a migration for the community I just migrated to Vanilla...

Investigating I2P at the moment. For some reason it never popped up on my radar till now. Amazing it's in java. For once a project I could contribute to without breaking my stride.

I am always up to answering questions about #OpenBSD porting and packaging. And I guess software portability more generally. Just ask!

A more general question I suppose:

Are there public examples out there of MACs (Mandatory Access Control) like SELinux or AppArmor actually mitigating an attack against a system?


Hello from Mastodon 2.1 - I note that if you had issues on , even after running migrations, then:

* if you changed gem versions, restart the VM - yes, really, Bundler gets very confused without doing this

* rubygem-openssl in latest IS BROKEN - REMOVE IT, and it'll fall back to rubygem-openssl20 - see:

Uhhh, time for some unplanned downtime as I have to upgrade from 2.0 -> 2.1

As always, on in case

Unpopular opinion: distro hopping is silly beyond major families. You're changing wallpapers. Find a distro that's unique beyond default applications and stick to it.
