Trying to get working in VMWare Fusion is all kinds of painful. And long winded. And annoying. And unreliable. At least so far. I can't wait for the new VMWare Tech preview...

Finally decided to investigate why my raspberry Pi webserver has stopped responding... I/O error, dev mmcblk0, sector 1635628 - she's dead Jim... :( -nginx

Apple's is coming... and apparently you'll want this app to make the most of it. I'm really excited I get to "attend" this year. (who needs sleep anyway?)

If we want to get *really* scifi, maybe these hypothetical carbon capture machines could construct *themselves* out of captured carbon, possibly using some kind of tiny pod containing most of the materials needed to get started as well as the information to construct the entire machine... Maybe these pods could, themselves, be made through carbon capture using the same machines, making them self-replicating without any technical skills needed

But this is all some kind of absurd pipe dream, of course. It's not like self-replicating material-producing carbon capture machines grow on trees
