Listened to 371: Four-Letter Technologies

A VERY nerdy technical interview with Chris Lattner, and forgiving ourselves for our lack of productivity during the quarantine.

By Accidental Tech Podcast

 
 

I do have a very old Amazon Fire tablet that we don’t use anymore now that the kids have iPads. Perhaps I could hack that up? Plugging it in to see what I can do... would be nice if I could jailbreak it...

 

I’m in the market for a battery-powered, Wi-Fi connected programmable sign. I want to attach it to my office door so that I can tell my family (well, mostly my kids) when its OK to enter, and when I need silence. Any ideas?

 

A search party commences for Matt, who's in hiding with a guilty conscience—and the airlock codes. Iris questions Karen about her rumored affair with Ryan. Rav seeks an apology from Judd for ruining her life. Chaos ensues when a seat on a rescue shuttle suddenly becomes available.

While Karen oversees an effort to jettison non-essential passenger items, Billie tries to teach an inattentive Ryan how to dock the ship. Matt learns of Judd's plan to make the 'ultimate sacrifice' by returning to Earth. The passengers suspect all is not as it seems with the journey.

Judd enlists Ryan to help charm Harrison Aimes, an uber-wealthy passenger who has a strange effect on Judd. Meanwhile, the passengers become transfixed by a divine image circling the ship and Rav deals with the fallout when the ship's moral quandary hits the media.

Main story: 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak, governmental response in the US, and the prevention of COVID-19.

This episode was filmed at an unspecified location with no live audience as the studio and the show's offices were shut down after employees tested positive for COVID-19. John Oliver stated the show will go on hiatus for an unspecified amount of time but will definitely return.

Schitt’s Creek this week 😢😆👌🏻💔

 

As Avenue 5 celebrates the birth of a space baby, Ryan and Billie try to identify the source of an incessant beeping, and Judd shares his latest grand idea at Karen’s passenger-crew liaison meeting. Rav appeals to the President for rescue funds but, in exchange, is faced with an ethical dilemma.

@manton I actually moved off of Day One a few years ago and migrated all of the content to my site via micropub, with private entries. I now journal in Drafts, and publish to my site via micropub. I'd love to see a micropub client purpose built for journaling, or support added to Day One! Would be awesome if it were built on standards so I could use it for my journaling again :)

 

Billie seeks her moment in the limelight after stepping in to help Ryan during the ship's newest crisis. Iris vets comedian Jordan Hatwal's material for the Halfway Home Party, which Judd has decided should go on as planned. Doug tries to get in the way of Mia's newfound sexual freedom.

With Judd worried about his reputation, Iris arranges a meet-and-greet with several passengers in his luxury suite. Frustrated by a bridge crew with no answers, Ryan and Billie bond with the engineers below deck. Matt encourages Frank to become the man he always wanted to be.

All of the sudden, when I join a Zoom with my XLR interface set as the audio input, people only hear me out of their left audio channel. This didn't used to happen, but either with a recent Zoom update, or with macOS Catalina, something changed. Any ideas?
