Yep. I cannot walk straight across a room for my border collies trying to block my path.

Is that a Border Collie - or Welsh sheepdog as I'd know them? My grandfather used to have them on his farm - they're fantastic dogs: friendly, hardworking and very intelligent. And know how to herd sheep by instinct. They once had a puppy, not a minute of training, but she would have all the hens penned up in a corner of the back yard and wouldn't let them go anywhere till my grandmother rescued them. All by hard-wired DNA!

The shelter where we adopted her said she was an Australian shepherd - sheltie mix. But the vet always lists her as border collie.

Definitely has the border collie coloring; might be Australian shepherd - border collie mix.

Re: Cheery Pic of the Day

Someone, who shall remain embarrassed, clipped the wrong transistor from this NVMe to PCIe adapter. Removing the proper transistor eliminates the requirement to use it only in a HP machine. (cough) Should have been the yellow one.

The yellow transistor could be moved to where the red one was, all would be okay. Started looking at hot air repair stations on eBay. Any excuse to buy a new tool, I say. Also looked at what replacing the entire card would cost. Picked up it's replacement  for $12.95 USD w/ shipping. I'll get around to fixing the original one for the experience of it.

So that leads us to Cheery Pic of the Day.

The mutilated adapter card sat on the workbench for a month and a half. I've long forgotten what might be on the SSD.

BunsenLabs! It updated in a flash and I installed btop, the latest toy.

Re: Cheery Pic of the Day

It may be worth noting that blister-pack in general is not ESD safe and should not be used like this. The pink tint indicates to me that this might be the same quality I see at work -- this quality should be ESD safe.

Sorry, I meant I'm going to do that project soon; if that's not what I said.

I'm looking at re-work/hot air stations now; with enough quality make success attainable and at reasonable a price for a one off project like this. Just trying to understand the nomenclature and the options possible. wink

Re: Cheery Pic of the Day

This is George, he's 9 and a half, he came to live with me 8 and a half years ago.
He had a stroke in June (was partially paralysed - one leg and wing on one side) and I nursed him back to health.

He's been out and about in my living room, flying around, eating sweetcorn and carrot and generally being happy to be alive.

I feel this is a very cheery photo, he's a very determined boy.

Re: Cheery Pic of the Day

No surprise smartphones have removed (most) compact digital cameras from the market, pretty amazing what a 2020 model sensor can do, though I remember the potato quality of earlier phone cameras just as well and what they would have given me instead of something recognizable as the Moon.

We don't have much time left in this year, so I nominate 'Festival near Nagoya' as "Best BL Forum Cheery Pic of the Year". Amazing shot, John! I mean, National Geographic ain't got shit on you. I'm so glad it was posted in a large-format preview. Happy New Year, everyone!

Re: Cheery Pic of the Day

^Have to confess, that pic was taken by a friend - though I have also been to that festival - so it doesn't qualify me for photographer-of-the-year or anything. (Other pics I posted here were all self-taken though.)

BTW it's very easy to tweak the size of an imgur preview. That particular image's url is https://i.imgur.com/vnv0T2w.jpg and the large preview is https://i.imgur.com/vnv0T2wl.jpg Replace the last 'l' with 'm' for medium or 't' for a thumbnail.

So if you change your mind later, just edit the post. smile

Re: Cheery Pic of the Day

The Back Story of the Chipmunks.

                Or

If you can't beat'em, join'em.

Early August 2016, Camped high, about 11,000 ft;
in the Rocky Mountains of Utah, right below the tree line.

Had a hard time keeping the chipmunks out of my bread. Hanging
from under the tarp is a Walmart bag with a loaf of bread in it.

And on top of that? A chipmunk. While his buddy watches!
