Rapture signs holding up well 15 years on

Sunday, June 24th, 2007

Every now and then I stop by and take a photo of these posters announcing the end of the world that happened on October 28, 1992.

Going on 15 years now!

MoveOn.org event: Meet the Generals

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

Last night I went up to Manchester to this town hall meeting:

Retired Generals Robert Gard and Brigadier General John Johns are coming to Manchester on Thursday and they’re going to speak out against President Bush’s reckless policy in Iraq. This is a great opportunity to see these generals powerfully indict the current war plan—and talk about how we can responsibly exit. Former Maine Congressman Tom Andrews is hosting a town hall meeting with them to talk about what New Hampshire can do to help end the war and they need your help to drive the discussion.

General Robert Gard, Brigadier General John Johns, Congressman Tom Andrews

We didn’t stay for all the Q&A, but Marty ?? make a comment that if Kucinich got a respectable 20% or more showing in NH’s primary, that it would have a huge impact on the political discussion of the three front runners.

USB to Serial Adapter for Ubuntu

Monday, June 18th, 2007

I recently received an updated laptop at work — a nice hp nc6400 notebook. Unlike the previous nc6000, this new on does not include a serial port which is problematic for the Garmin to serial cable I have. I ordered from CompUSA a USB to Serial Adapter by CablesToGo (model 26886) and it works great out of the box on Ubuntu/Feisty.

All I needed to change is the serial port to use, so:

gpsbabel -t -i garmin -f /dev/ttyS0 -o kml,points=0,line_color=ff0000ff -F waypoints.kml
gpsbabel -t -i garmin -f /dev/ttyS0 -o gpx -F waypoints.gpx

becomes:

gpsbabel -t -i garmin -f /dev/ttyUSB0 -o kml,points=0,line_color=ff0000ff -F waypoints.kml
gpsbabel -t -i garmin -f /dev/ttyUSB0 -o gpx -F waypoints.gpx

FWIW, it uses the pl2303 kernel module.
