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..

The Pre & Pixi are CDMA phones, locked to Bell Mobility and Sprint respectively. So they're effectively useless.

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.

I decided I wanted some stats. There are a few options: Use a service (Google Analytics, etc) or parse your logs. Both have pros and cons. This article isn't supposed to help you decide.

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've got a bunch of KVM virtual machines running at home. They all use sparse qcow2 files as storage, which is nice and space efficient -- at least at the beginning.

The latter step *might* not be required. The only other option is "hypervisor default", so it might just use virtio-scsi by default. Better safe than sorry.
