This on the day that it is reported 2016 was the hottest year on record, beating the previous hottest year on record, er, 2015. I'm sure it's nothing to worry about.
Eighteen days into 2017, eighteen days of no drinking, this must be some sort of record. Still feels like quite a long month ahead of me. Not that I am gasping for a drink but I'm really looking forward to the end of this month as a) it's payday, b) it's a profit share payday, and c) I can buy some mad stuff I have seen on http://edcgear.co.uk and http://everydaycarry.com, but also d) we're taking the boys to London then. Looking forward to that one.
Rate The Wedding PresentDon't remember the band so much as meeting up with some friends there, someone from uk-indie. It was Wedding Present at ULU, that's all I have really. Think we might have gone on to another gig or club night or something after this.
☠ raspberry pi: cheap low powered computer
More stuff there I like too especially the oh no definitely not a handbag section.
Had some soldering to do, and that went well, then had to bend another of the gpio pins through ninety degrees[sup]*[/sup] and did not break it. All good so far!
I forgot for a while that I had put some code in place that said "if we lose mains power, then power down right away", and was trying to use the pi without being connected to the "I have power" output of the adafruit powerboost. So every time I booted up the pi, it powered down again. Got me for about half an hour that one... so I connected everything up and powered up and all good, and then changed the script *not* to power down but to just log what was going on. And then pulled the mains power, so it was only powered from the battery, and it logged, hooray so all working. But then reinstated the "power down" again, and disconnected everything. And now the raspberry pi won't power up at all, bah.
So all was working as expected for about five minutes, quite pleased. But not pleased any more.
Brief recap of what I'm trying to achieve - power the raspberry pi from a battery in the car. If the ignition is on, power the raspberry pi from the car battery, and stay on. When the ignition goes off, shut down the raspberry pi so as not to drain the car battery. When the ignition is turned on again, turn the pi back on again.
Not quite sure what the pi is going to do in the car, but I do have the sense hat on it right now, so it can log the mad acceleration and g-force I'm generating in the beetle...
[sup]*[/sup]I didn't *have* to bend the gpio pins, but if I want to plug the sense hat in at the same time as having access to the pins that that is not using to connect the powerboost, then I have to do something.

How long between me describing them as mentals and posting my entire pocket contents there? Place your bets...
Here's a sample quote from a review of a bag on there I was just reading:
Conversely, most laptop/messenger bags are stellar at safely storing a laptop and hauling literature, but are insufficient for also stowing a handgun; especially into a non-permissive environments where "security" may insist on looking inside the bag` that everydaycarry website is amazing
Maybe there's more than one kind of user on that site. I'm more of the screwdriver-and-a-pen type than the neck blade and hand gun type.
From there I also found http://www.edcgear.co.uk, I'm going to tool up ready for the zombie apocalypse. Articles like this are fun but when you get into the comments it gets far scarier than the thought of zombies.

Off into Hythe this afternoon for a hair cut, just waiting for H to finish watching Harry Potter on the TV.
