I found a page that makes running rigctld at startup on systemd machines relatively simple. You can check it out here. You then just point all of your ham radio programs at 127.0.0.1:4352 and it all just works, like it should.
If you are like me, you have multiple audio sinks and sources for your laptop. Linux seems to prefer USB audio, which is bad when that USB audio device is your HF radio. The result is general weirdness when sending audio to the radio (it can get stuck in a feedback loop, transmit system sounds, and so on). This site will show you how to stop that insanity for good.
Also, I just learned how to do initial drop caps in WordPress. Pretty cool.
Adding it to the same list as Benadryl….
I got this:
In mythical times all things were whole:
All the sky was clear,
All the earth was stable,
All the mountains were firm,
All the riverbeds were full,
All of nature was fertile,
And all the rulers were supported.
But, losing clarity, the sky tore;
Losing stability, the earth split;
Losing strength, the mountains sank;
Losing water, the riverbeds cracked;
Losing fertility, nature disappeared;
And losing support, the rulers fell.
Rulers depend upon their subjects,
The noble depend upon the humble;
So rulers call themselves orphaned, hungry and alone,
To win the people’s support.

I discovered a handy new tool today, ltunify. Instead of trying to use USB passthrough to Windows 10 in Virtualbox, this command line tool will let you configure your Logitech wireless devices in Linux. Use was pretty straightforward. I used the system-wide install, and then just use the command via sudo instead of monkeying with the permissions in /dev.
I must preserve these ideas. No matter how stupid they may seem. I will log here my thoughts, for all to see.
I just wanted to share one of my favorite YouTubers, Scott Manley!
