"The best thing for being sad," replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then -- to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn." -- T.H. White, "The Once and Future King"

Differences in 100-pin printer memory DIMMs

My HP Color LaserJet CM1017 (CB395A) claims, according to all online documentation I can find, to take 100-pin non-DDR SDRAM. Upon ordering and trying to install the RAM, I found the notches don't line up. Here's the differences, with photo evidence. Phooey.

SDRAM pin/notch spacing: 6 pins, right notch, 16 pins, centered notch, 28 pins

DDR pin/notch spacing: 6 pins, right notch, 16 pins, right notch, 28 pins

I know that when someone has the temerity to say "Gosh, I wish Emacs could do X", they're generally met instantaneously with howls of derision by a teeming horde of "Ask me about my Aspergers!"-shirt-wearing neckbeards who let them know:

  • Anyone who would want to do such a thing is an idiot.
  • Doing $INSANELY_COMPLICATED_ALTERNATIVE is much better as any idiot knows.
... it's a million times funnier when that person saying "Gosh, I wish..." is Richard M. Stallman.

I now own more original art.

http://sellingoutforfunandprofit.com is back up, meaning Michael Poe (of Errant Story and Exploitation Now!) & his SO finally got the "give us money for stuff!" solution working after quite some time.

Remote Desktop cannot verify identity because time/date difference between your/remote computer.

Remote Desktop cannot verify the identity of the remote computer because there is a time or date difference between your computer and the remote computer. Make sure your computer's clock is set to the correct time and then try connecting again. If the problem occurs again, contact your network administrator or the owner of the remote computer.

Workaround: Connect via IP address instead of name.
