< ^ txtThu Nov 5 08:31:18 EST 2015 Went to bed around eleven, woke up for half an hour or around five but fell back to sleep, and got up around 7:30. I feel mostly rested. Another beautiful day today with a high of seventy-four! Goals: Work: - Test new Fedora with live boot flash drive Done. Tested Fedora 23 on Macbook Air (2011). Wifi works. Graphics seem good. Trackpad works well. Display dimming function key works! Tap to click works once turned on. Even two-finger scrolling works. Audio works. Damn, this is pretty smooth. I guess I probably won't be able to tell if suspend to disk works from the Live thing. Suspend to RAM (`systemctl suspend`) works, and it even wakes up when I open the lid. I think this could be practical. Apparently the webcam doesn't work, but that's not a big deal for me. Installed to hard drive. - Write work orders for Central security Done. WO's 799703-5. - Revise git cheatsheet/notes Started. http://paulgorman.org/technical/git.txt - Follow up on mailing machine Done. They'll install on Monday. Forty minute walk at lunch. Mostly cloudy, but comfortably warm. Saw a bunch of dragonflies, and a bunch of crows. Home: - Change sheets and towels Done. - Buy coffee Done. - Go to bed a little early Before ten, anyhow. I was having some sort of problem with mpd that I didn't have time to fix. I installed audacious, and I kind of like it. I treated myself to some new NAD HP50 headphones, which arrived today. Not immediately in love with them. Very sensitive, even too sensitive for the headphone out of my Onyx Blackjack. Brighter than I expected too. They present somewhat like a Grado, which was not at all what I expected. They have been described as slightly warm. I'm not super disappointed, more just surprised. Maybe I'm just used to the Sennheiser "veil". Hmph. Maybe it's just that the treble is a little splashy. Good resolution and instrument separation, although I'm not getting the "speaker-like" presentation I've heard so much about. Very good texture. We'll see if they (or my ears) burn in.... Hmmm... after an hour these sound a lot better. Also, they are very comfortable. Very agreeable with classical. And jazz. OK, and most things sound pretty good now. I guess my only complaint is that they're so sensitive; on recordings with high levels, I have to dip below nine o'clock on the volume dial. And a few hours later, I'm really liking the HP50. This is a very good all-day headphone.
