< ^ txtTue Sep 1 06:54:56 EDT 2015 Went to be around nine or nine-thirty last night, slept well, and woke up around six or six-thirty. August went by fast. Mostly sunny with a high near ninety today. Got in a half hour walk at lunch, despite the heat. A handful of the trees are already developing a fringe of yellow and orange. Goals: Work: - Finish config of 48-port switches Yes! Pretty much done. Next is the deployment, which should be interesting. Home: - Hem pants Done. - Grocery shopping Done. Also bought gas. - Try to walk before it hits ninety degrees Done, although it was already pretty damn hot by lunch. Spent too much time hemming pants this morning to walk before work. - Do a little work on roguelike Thinking about how I want to do level and entity tracking. - Multiple arrays of bits: - Passable - Mob - Loot - Effect - Of course, if I do that, I still need to find the thing in question.... Interesting: demidecode http://linux.die.net/man/8/dmidecode dmidecode is a tool for dumping a computer's DMI (some say SMBIOS ) table contents in a human-readable format. This table contains a description of the system's hardware components, as well as other useful pieces of information such as serial numbers and BIOS revision. Thanks to this table, you can retrieve this information without having to probe for the actual hardware. While this is a good point in terms of report speed and safeness, this also makes the presented information possibly unreliable. The DMI table doesn't only describe what the system is currently made of, it also can report the possible evolutions (such as the fastest supported CPU or the maximal amount of memory supported).
