@Cyborgneticz thank you for clarifying.

LOTR quote 

"all we have to decide is what to do with the time given to us." Gandalf (J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings)

Speaking to me today. No one wants covid or the times we're seeing, but that's not for us to decide...

Pro audio podcast recommendations 

The first one should link to "the loudness wars" which features Ian Shepard. It's a podcast called 20,000 hrz and has some awesome production quality and is all about sound.

The second one should link to Ian shepard's "the mastering show" podcast about audio mastering. I am sure learning a lot.

Nextcloud closed 2020 with record numbers and doubled its growth rate.

Continued innovation with a strong focus on meeting the real-life needs of modern organizations during the move to remote collaboration over 2020 has been key to this growth!

@Cyborgneticz I always took notes in college, even though I didn't and many time couldn't (because of terrible handwriting) go back and read them.

I read somewhere that if you write something down you're 10x more likely to remember it.

I wasn't a brilliant student, but it worked for me.

Linux, pro audio, nerd 

I don't know why it took so long, but I finally got it figured out!

I can now record audio into jack and monitor over bluetooth.

I use Ubuntu studio, which makes pulse bridging REALLY easy. So, I already had the pulse bridge up and running. The key to getting it working with bluetooth is to load the loopback module in pulse: "pactl load-module module-loopback"

Using this with the LDAC bluetooth module an my Sony nose cancelling headphones actually sounds good!

Linux, windows, geeky stuff 

I've been a long time Linux user. I have to use windows to set the internal routing on my Focusrite Scarlett audio interface. So, what I end up doing is using a virtual machine inside Linux using Virtual box. That way I don't have to be a filthy dual booter sand I can still change the settings on my interface.

All that being said, as a Linux user, nothing scares me more than windows saying "leave everything to us." ๐Ÿ˜ณ Frankly, I don't want to leave ANYTHING to you.

Teaching advice 

"Everything that happens in your classroom, whether good or bad, happens because you allow it."

-Lynne Jackson

We are responsible for the environment we create. In my reading of "Servant," by Hunter this morning I read the phrase we have to "Legislate their behaviors." This means we have to provide the necessary friction for them to choose to change the undesired behavior.

Philosophy, Ship of Thesis, Wandavision opinions; spoilers in article. 

The Wandavision finale was beautiful. And before you think me some juvenile uncultured swine, check out this article. They incorporated the "Ship of Thesis" in the finale. There was also tons of heart. IMHO, the finale and the "what is grief, if not live persevering" line makes the entire season (including the slow first two) worth the watch.
