So in Linux Mint 19.1 I managed to kill Policy Kit. Nemo stopped prompting for a password when I tried to ‘open as root’. Synaptic Package Manager stopped opening when I tried to launched it. And various other things broke as well.
The Easy Way:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
But that’s a lot of extra stuff if you just wanted the fonts.
I bought a VFD off eBay a few years back but it never worked. A few days ago I found it in a box and decided to try it again.
Finished my second project tonight. It’s a Bus Pirate 3.5a-SOIC from Dangerous Prototypes. Again one of the most difficult things I’ve ever built.
Today I completed building my Bus Pirate Shield for Arduino from Dangerous Prototypes. This was the most difficult project I’ve ever built.
Some new links including xkcd and updated a few links. Theme is coming together nicely. More stuff soon.
