The Sound Looking In

I don’t have much to contribute to the discussions about modern electronic music, or what Burial means, but I do think it’s important to mention the idea of reflexivity.  Music looking in on music being played.  I think this is central.  And certainly all performance must eventually be held up to a mirror…

Daft Punk - Revolution 909

In a near future post I’ll discuss half-step gearing on my vintage ~’72 Gitane and all grain home brewing, round one (no spelt! WTF!).

Ice, no ice. You don’t make friends with Ubuntu.

I mean maybe you do. I haven’t gone to any Linux nerd fun camps. Probably it’s safer to go to homebrew meet ups.

M & I got the “Abbey Style” Tripel bottled, we didn’t mix in any Kriek. Which is fine. Approximate ABV prior to bottling was 7.6%, which is not bad. We can probably hit higher gravities with a bigger kettle, we ran out of space with the sheer amount of fermentables we were moving in, and likely should’ve left it in primary for at minimum a whole month. The “Dubbel” is now conditioning in the 5 gal. glass carboy. Next up is hopefully two or three batches of mild “session” style English ales, quicker to ferment; I’d be happy keeping them all below 4% ABV, the key here seems to getting our production pipeline rolling a bit more than once per month.

There has been no ice. Or snow really to speak of. It was 60 degrees out, which is good for me going running, not good for the squash courts which are kept at approximately 1000 degrees, which makes it sort of like a fitness sauna. We may have to play some tennis this Summer apparently as the the courts don’t have proper AC.

That’s about all I’ve got.  If you haven’t bought Burial’s Kindred, go buy it now.

Android 2.2 Wifi > Bluetooth : bridge & tether DUN

This isn’t a common situation, but without root it seems you cannot share or rebroadcast a given SSID using your Android’s wireless chipset, however, using PdaNet, you can share a wifi signal via bluetooth with a laptop or another device running PdaNet.

So there, I hope that’s the answer you are gøøgling right now.

Once paired successfully over bluetooth, on the client laptop you’ll need to enter “123” as the dial up phone number in the DUN settings.

You are welcome.
