Interesting that Trump & others want to complain about voting fraud when it comes to losing the Presidency but not when it comes to votes that are in their favor for the Senate, even though these are all being cast from the very same ballots.The most bothersome anomaly is what seems to be an exceedingly high number of under votes for down ballot questions. There apparently weren’t split tickets as much as people have been thinking. There are more questions than the presidency on the ballot paper and I find it very strange that so many would only vote on the presidency and leave the rest of it blank.

Added another architecture to my Linux-libre APT repository at https://jxself.org/linux-libre/: The Motorola 68000 series (68020 or later; an MMU is required.)
A friend of mine had been saying they wanted this for a while. This brings the number of supported architectures up to either 10 or 11, depending on how you count. What next?

Ah, well at least now they explicitly call out that they're in the "Embrace" phase. :)

Does anyone plan to watch the launch of Perseverance and Ingenuity on Thursday? I understand the launch will be streamed live via NASA TV. https://mars.nasa.gov/mars2020/

I like my GNU/Linux distros to be boring and uneventful. Specifically: Releases that happen at 2 - 5 year intervals and where package version numbers are frozen in time on release. This lets me work on the things I want to work on and not spending my time on fixing the distro. Can't remember where I heard this one: "The bleeding edge is stained by the blood of the users."

Oh, derp. I'm so stupid. I thought "Oh I should apply package updates and then after doing so I stupidly restarted the computer that was doing kernel stuff. As I saw the SSH connection close in the other window I immediately thought "Wait, what? Oh yeah; I was using that computer." Now to start over...

I found 9 old hard drives in a box while moving. They range from 500MB to 80GB. I'm going through them them one by one to see what's on them. First one had nothing on it. Looks to have been reformatted. I'm wiping the drive with GNU Shred because I don't recall what used to be on it. Then repeat.
Puff, the Magic Dragon

The Incompatible Timesharing System (ITS) is super weird in a lovable way. Did you know that Puff, the Magic Dragon lives in ITS? It's like a syslog daemon but in the ITS vocabulary, the idea of a "daemon" is instead called a "dragon" so of course they'd put Puff in there. This is before operating systems got all boring and "professional" and whatnot.
