I decided to update the 3/4 of my Palm WebOS devices. The Pre (not pictured) and Pre2 (middle) were my primary, daily-driver phones for over two years, from September 2009 through to spring 2012, when I acquired a Galaxy Nexus and made the jump to Android.

The Pixi (left) I picked up cheap on eBay. "For Parts", because it "Does not move from activation screen". Now, the Pixi was a low-end device when it launched. *It doesn't even have WiFi*. This isn't a device you'd buy to use. But as a curiosity, I was interested. Due to the Palm servers being taken offline in January 2015, the activation process will never complete. Interestingly, this "Sprint" Pixi has a "Verizon" faceplate, possibly swapped from a Pixi Plus at some point. Model number confirms it is a Sprint device..

I recently restarted all my VMs at once and found that several managed to start services before they finished mounting their NFS shares. These shares back apache virtualhosts, mysql databases, and ultimately left several services in non-functional states. Systemd has the ability to depend on services (Requires=, and others) as well as filesystems (RequiresMountsFor=). However, I don't want to modify or replace the .service files installed from the package. I'd have to manually reconcile changes during updates, and it just generally isn't nice.

So I sent my MacBook in for repairs. The fn key seems to have come right off, which is unfortunately not only a useful key, but perhaps the most heavily-trafficked key on the entire board (being a pre-requisite of such auspicious keys such as Page-Up, and Home). Luckily, the guy at the store thinks it may be ready tomorrow -- assuming they can diagnose the missing key and quickly order a replacement keyboard. I forgot to mention the wonky trackpad issue -- perhaps a service ticket for another day.

I have various pieces of computer equipment that I am looking to get rid of. I would much prefer to give them to somebody who can put them to a useful purpose rather than throw them out. Please contact me if you are interested.

Okay, so the ipad is just a big ipod touch, and filling the "device too large to always have on you but too limited to do lots with" between a handy with-you smartphone and a real computer.

I was just building some statistics of users, and apparently there are 82 unique IPs that access my [package repository](http://packages.cidesign.ca). This excludes my workstations. I had no idea anybody else was even using them, so "Rock On" as it were.

I've recently purchased a [Unicomp Customizer 104](http://pckeyboards.stores.yahoo.net/customizer.html). It is essentially a modern version of the old IBM Model M mechanical keyboards. I do a fair amount of typing, so I thought it would be worthwhile to invest in a better keyboard.
