FiftyOneFifty

We are here tonight to share memories of our friend Donlad Grier aka FiftyOneFifty

Fifty was involved with many podcast over the years

Shared thoughts and memories:
Ken Fallon

I was in the back room pottering away when espeak notified me that 5150
had passed away. I went back to the computer and read the announcement
in the IRC Logs and confirmed the news. Some dude I had never met, never
seen in my life, and didn’t even know his real name, was gone and I was
in the back room crying my eyes out.

Crying for the loss of a friend.

When had he become a friend ?

People have been socializing since the dawn of humans, be it at the camp
fire, the forge, pub, hairdresser, sports club, church, or wherever.

For us it was via Linux podcasting. You are there because you share a
common interest. If you were into Linux podcasting then you could not
help but get to know fiftyonefifty. The guy turned up everywhere if not
on the podcasts themselves he was commenting on them. I have 619
messages from him about HPR alone.

He submitted his first show back in 2010 and has been a regular since
then. At some point after that I knew that he was on my “special list”
of people who I could rely upon to fill the queue if needed.

And as I sat there crying I realized that he had also sneaked onto my
list of friends.

I’ve not always been a fan of the New Year Show, but now I am glad for
it. While I may never get to share a beer with him any more, or take him
up on his promise to let me fire off some rounds on his farm, I did at
least get to shoot the breeze with him for many a happy hour.

Goodbye old friend you will be missed

A Ramble for FiftyOneFifty: King of Ramblers

I am writing a Ramble for a man I knew only as FiftyOneFifty.  I never knew his real name,
nor do I know if he knew mine.  In many things, Names do not matter, People, Actions, and
feeling do.   We podcasted together off and on, over several years.  I don’t recall exactly
how many.   It doesn’t matter now, since they are all that there will ever be.  We grew to be
good friends.  I never met him in person, online life is like that.  I only know my life would be
much poorer, if I had not known him.  Hearing he died, shattered me.  This Ramble is my try
at putting most the pieces back in place.  Of course, nothing can replace the largest piece,
the Man Himself.  My heart and prayers go out to those friends and family dealing with his loss.

His death is a harsh, unchangeable, fact.  I shall focus on his life, and things better remembered
than the wall we all will hit one day.  Fifty was a man if Life, Joy, and passions.  That is how I shall
write of him.  I had a far too short time, to learn about him, and from him.  It will also  warm my heart,
where he live yet, and has for a long time.  I learned this fact, only after I could no longer talk with him.

I found him easy to talk with, and listen to.  He was also “Vaccinated with a Victrola Needle ”  as
my relatives might say.  He could ramble on for hours. enjoyably.  He virtually always made sense,
even when in his cups.  He shared himself, his hobbies, experience, and his travels with us, on our
podcasts.  While he went to Linux events, he never limited himself to just linux topics.  He reported the
non Linux features of events.  This great for choosing family trips to them.   He included accommodations, restaurants, and pubs in the area.  I don’t travel, or drive, so these second hand visit were a delight.

His research and Linux activities made up much of his contribution to our podcasts.  He life also
flowed in, to entertain and inform us.  He lived in the country, farming, cows, trouble getting Internet
service were included.  My parents can off farms, so he even kept my ties to that life alive.  Firearms, cars, especially his beloved Hearse were shared interests.  tale from his tech support work, for businesses and schools enlightened me.  Farmers are natural pack rats, so gathering all sorts of discarded computer gear was natural.   Unfortunately he lost most of it in the fire which destroyed his house.   Losing his house, and even his dear father, never seemed to blight his spirit or life, in the long run.  It would be natural to keep such private matters from more distant friends, as I was.  Nor did his long illness color the side of him I saw.  it got in his way, sometimes,  as I recall, but never in his spirit.  I wish I had been closer, to offer myself more to the man I miss dearly.  I must just try to use his independent example, in my own life.  Anyone could do much, worse.   His quiet touch helped heal me in ways I am only now realizing.

I started the day in tears, still aching from losing a rare, true friend.  Then I recalled a song from Toby Keith, called “Cryin’ for Me (Wayman’s Song ) written about he loss of his close friend, Wayman Tisdale.  Toby found about his friends passing on Friday.  On Sunday Toby was driven to write the memorial song.  In it he says his tears are not for his lost friend, who is now in Heaven, but for Toby himself, and all those family, and friends, Wayman left behind.  I believe Fifty is in Heaven, with his Dad, and those who have gone before.  He will see things from the Good Seats.  He can enjoy all the Holidays, and never feel the cold.  I was driven to write like Toby, to handle my own shock and grief.  We Cry and Mourn, those left behind in the Mortal world, for our loss and pain.  Our dear One is beyond pain, perhaps for the first time in years.  He has earned his time in Grace.  He as paid as we pay now, for life beyond grief, with those who have gone ahead.   I hope my words and memories may help  the ones he left behind.  Pain is a Mortal thing. It need not be deadly, or poisonous.  Fifty’s Life is a great example of this and many other things.  I hope we can go forward, with his example helping heal our loss of him.    God Bless You, Fifty, and those you touched in turn.

We Lost A Friend

On Thursday September 5th I got pinged on MeWe by Randy Hall a fraternity brother of Donald Grier (FiftyOneFifty). He Said that Don had passed away.
He then joined us on the LugCast on September 6th. He explained what he knew about what had happened and told us that Don’s cousins were planning his Memorial Service at Larrison Mortuary in Pratt, KS.
As of this posting there still has not been an obituary posted.

On Friday September 20th (our next recording date) we will have our own memorial for FiftyOneFifty.
We are inviting anyone to come on and join us to share memories of FiftyOneFifty,
If you are unable to join us and would like to share some thoughts or memories you can send us an email at feedback@linuxlugcast.com (I will also accept audio files)
Please join us in celebrating the life of a  great friend.

Hello all

iTunes has worked in wine for about 10 years, but the phone/tablet will never get system updates via that iTunes, updates only come down in Windows/Mac
I believe iTunes in a Windows VM on a Linunx host cannot even get updates for hardware
If you can get updates over mobile data than I believe most of iTunes will work “fine”, DRM video might have issues
Thanks

Texas Linux Fest:  Met Joe, Ed Leach, and Danny Meeks.  Hung around with them and Mordancy

KansasLinuxFest.org Aug. 9-11 2019, Wichita State University Campus.  No reserved rooms, no hotel near campus.  If coming from out of town, I suggest getting a room in “Old Town”.

After 24 years, new version of Amiga OS released https://gigazine.net/gsc_news/en/20181011-amiga-os-new-version/

A new “Amiga” to go with it https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/05/the-a-eon-amiga-x5000-reviewed-the-beloved-amiga-meets-2017/

Netminer:  Folks, there are three Amiga OS lines due to licensing.   There is the 3.1 series, the 3.9 series, and the 4.1 series.   I am not an Amiga person,  but I am a retro computing person.   I follow the continuing  Amiga saga with interest.

Got  DietPi on my Pine64.  Ran Pi-Hole, 64 overheated and locked up.  Will try without pine case before trying a different SBC

On way home from airport, found Arcade1Up Asteroids for $150 clearance at WalMart.  Bought 2.  Discovered one open box, assembled, no worky.  Ultimately, this was to be a Retro-Pi cabinet, but I’d have liked to have tested the 1Up.  Second cabinet was for investment, but I could help a bro or sis out.

Creine Mathews: <- Creine, Danny, you do know you are always welcome to join us live?
Hello colleagues, I leave a video tutorial with their respective English translations, this very didactic, is simple, short and accurate. To learn how to create bootable usb memory in linux. Whether they want to try a Linux distribution without installing it on their machine, or installing it, you can do it with a bootable USB memory. You should only choose the distribution of linux that your prefer.

All companies, regardless of how large or small, run on their data. Consider the financial and business cost of losing all of the data you need to run your business. There is not a business today ranging from the smallest sole proprietorship to the largest global corporation that could survive the loss of all or even a large fraction of its data. Your place of business can be rebuilt using insurance, but your data can never be rebuilt.

Basic rsync commands are usually enough to manage your Linux backups, but a few extra options add speed and power to large backup sets.
