Making a difference
It feels good to actually have a positive impact on something. One of my biggest gripes about working in support is that you are - as a support agent - inevitably the face of disappoinment and/or failure at some point. The job is time and attention demanding, and sometimes you simply have to tell someone that things they want are not possible.
Okay, so I'm slightly reneging on my earlier post by writing about computers again, but trust me when I say this one is as much personal as it is technical.
A Fond Farewell
So for the last few weeks I've been exclusively using GuixSD on my X200s. It's been an interesting experiment, and there are a good many things I really liked about the system. For now, though, I am going back to Parabola.
And Now For Something Completely Different
I've been writing posts on this website for a little while now, mostly relating to my technological exploits and sysadmin misadventures. While this is a big part of my life at the moment, it's not the only thing I do. I'm going to try and write a bit more about non-technology things just to try to encourage myself to focus on other things alongside computers.
Another Funkwhale Update
After a little bit of frustration on my side due to not following the directions properly, Tanuki Tunes is now running Funkwhale 0.18.1. The changes in this version will be mostly invisible to end-users, but include important bugfixes such as one that prevented the editing of tracks in the Django admin panel. This update has also made me aware that the site was previously running an out-of-date version of Postgresql. This has now been rectified, so the site is completely up-to-date with suggested specs.
