A rough account of what I did with Emacs recently.
- December 2
- So, er, that's it for season one of The Peripheral,
is it? I was trying to figure out how they'd wind down to a finale
and the answer appears to be "let's set up Season 2" which is,
quote, actively in production, although we'll see if that survives
the current economic climate. It's been quite enjoyable, even
though it's departed fairly dramatically from the source material
at this point; it's still roughly in the spirit of the source, at
least, which is what you want from an adaptation. And the
production is excellent. Ah well, just in time for the second
season of Slough House to kick off...
We're still watching Vikings: into the final season at this point,
and approaching the mid-season finale. Enjoying it, still, but it
also feels a bit like they ran out of ideas so I'm gonna assume
there will be a couple more heroic battles shot in the artistic
style of whoever's directing, someone will eventually
give Ivar what he's deserved for many episodes, Harald will fall
from a great height on his head due to his own stupidity,
I've been tinkering with using AWS SSM to manage "on-prem"
hardware, i.e. a crusty old macOS machine and a Raspberry Pi, and
I gotta say trying to debug failed Run Commands is a bit of an
adventure. I've currently taken to cloning the official commands,
patching them locally, and inspecting the results of the scheduled
runs to figure out what's going on.

- macOS Ventura: it's crashing less. It's still crashing, and the
problem still smells like something going awry with Thunderbolt,
and the fact that it's segfaulting seems... problematic
to say the least, but in any case I'm struggling on while I wait
for a 13.0.2 release.
Vikings: tonight's episode killed off the longest-running cast
member. Oh well. Sorry to see her go but I guess the, ah, Gods had
decided it from the outset.
Having an odd but irritatingly familiar ZWave issue at the moment,
whereby a TRV is reporting its current temperature, but nothing
else. It should have readouts for valve open percentage, battery
level, and a few other things, but no, I'm getting temperatures
and that's it. Which is annoying because I'm trying to understand
its current behaviour and this isn't helping.

The Sember, whatever that is.
