Re: Audio interface recommendations? (2018 edition)

It's all audio across the entire system, including YouTube, iTunes, system sounds, etc.

It seems to be something weird with my user account though. Switching to a different account isn't having those problems. So I've got to do a data migration fandango or something.

Re: Audio interface recommendations? (2018 edition)

Okay so I got the 18i8, and upgraded to macOS 10.15 (Catalina), and I'm finding that every few seconds the audio drops out a bunch. Anyone else running a Scarlett on Catalina? (JB?) Was this a thing you experienced and was there a way to fix it? I've tried doing all of their troubleshooting steps an...

Re: Song Fight! Live #20 in 2020 for Song Fight! 20th anniversary SF

Okay so my (brother's) constraints are:
  • Not on June 13-14 (so no EIEBC day revival)
  • Not on July 4 weekend (not that it was likely to be then)
  • Not on July 27-28

Re: Backup Planning - what's your scheme?

Check your local thrift stores for used Airport Extremes. Sometimes you can get them for stupid cheap there. Like, a year ago I saw three of them for $10 each, and one turned out to be a 3TB Time Capsule. (Then I ended up reselling them on eBay for like $200 total.) I don't recommend them as access ...

Re: Backup Planning - what's your scheme?

Just putting it on the network isn't enough, it needs to specifically support the Time Machine protocol (which is an extension to SMB). Synology does (with some fiddling to get it working), and I think it'll also let you attach existing USB drives as a Time Machine volume although I haven't tried th...

Re: Cooking

I don’t even remember that bit. Probably for the best.

Seattle last night I made my chili but in too small of a pot and used cubed lean sirloin which turned out to be as mistake. Oh well.

Re: Song Fight! Live #20 in 2020 for Song Fight! 20th anniversary SF

I'm waiting for my brother to figure out when he's traveling, since I generally rely on him for lodging and also would like him to actually make it to one of these heckin' shows again. (Last time he managed to make it was back in 2005! Since he lived in Boston at the time.)

Re: Backup Planning - what's your scheme?

Every time I look into setting up an LFS repository I end up remembering why I never do so. It's a lot of hassle and every configuration I care about is "unsupported."

Re: Backup Planning - what's your scheme?

I miss AFS although that's mostly misplaced nostalgia for a thing I never actually used. But it always seemed neat as heck. CAP theorem is a pretty decent take on why distributed filesystems are hard to do well, and most of the tradeoffs made for the C and P part severely impact the A part, which is...

Re: Cooking

I baked a spice-filled sandworm for a Dune movie night tonight! It was a hit. That movie is awesome even if it makes no sense. Oddly enough just the other night I got in a conversation about how the Lynch version of Dune is the only one worth consuming anymore because all of the others that exist (...

Re: Backup Planning - what's your scheme?

I keep active/recent projects on my desktop, which is backed up via Time Machine to both a USB-attached 3TB hard drive and a Synology NAS (DS414) over the network, and also to Backblaze B2 with the Arq backup client. Archived projects live on the Synology NAS, which gets backed up to Backblaze B2 as...

Re: Cooking

I like to sauté shiitake and then add tofu and then use that in ramen or udon or whatever. It also makes for great mushroom broth.
