I showed that simple dialog for my audio streams as a simple lead-up to my main project this weekend: creating a dialog-based frontend to launching rigctld. I've still got some work to do, but I've got the hardest part done: taking the list of rigs from the output of "rigctl -l" and turning it into a menu where the user can select the rig. It will even offer to stop rigctld if it's already running before starting a new instance.

I forgot to provide a screenshot of the menu I made of the audio streams in my database yesterday, so here it is. I'm sure the SDF folks will appreciate which stream is currently selected.

It's been far too long since I posted pictures of , so here are a couple of pictures of her hanging out on one of the arms of my living room chair.

One thing I worked on during my time away from the Fediverse is setting up Nagios here at home, after spending a lot of time with it at work. I've got the basic services I want, but there's key differences between my setup here and what I do at work:

- I use NetBSD instead of Linux
- I use lighttpd instead of Apache
- I use instead of IPv4, with unique local addresses so nothing goes beyond my own LAN

It's been far too long since I've done a toot so here's Freyja sitting on a blanket in my living room tonight. She was looking at the camera at the time but now it looks like she's going to sleep.

It's been awhile since I posted pics, so here's Freyja on the living room rug, looking cute.

I saw this inside Union Station in Washington, D.C. a few hours before I boarded my train.

A bit late for perhaps, but Freyja decided to jump in the bathtub to clean herself after I got done taking a bath.

All right, Fediverse cat lovers, I want to settle this once and for all.

Up to this point I've been calling a tortiseshell tabby, or tortie, because while she has some white fur it's not the majority of her fur, so I haven't been calling her coat calico.

But I showed pictures of her at work to one of my coworkers and ze said that Freyja was a calico. Ze may be right.

Here's a picture that shows most of Freyja's white fur, along with two I took today just because. Thoughts?

I want to get up but Freyja's laying on my left leg. It's a cool, rainy day here in Champaign so her being there feels nice but keeps me from doing what I want to do.

After months of thinking about it, even before I moved to Illinois when I lived in an apartment with carpet, I finally got some area rugs on Sunday night. The first picture is of the one in the living room, the second in my bedroom.

As a bonus the second picture has in it. She definitely approves of both rugs.

DIY VoIP update 

Due to my previously-undisclosed travels it's been awhile since I've tooted a cat pic on Caturday so here's Freyja chilling on the couch today.

I know she probably shouldn't have them, but one of Freyja's favorite toys is rubber bands. She got into a bag I'd carelessly left open in my computer/radio room.

These are also the first pictures I've taken with my DSLR since I moved here. I thought I'd left it in PA but it turns out I didn't.

Freyja loves this spot, but the reset button is right next to her front left paw.

She did eventually get up and hit the button. This is why putting power & reset buttons on the top is a mistake.

Of course I still love her even if she does reset my computer now and then.

I can't let go by without posting a picture of my cute, sweet, tailless little purrball.
