MD-BT01 on iOS 11.3 iPad

My iPad got updated to 11.3 and I lost the ability to use my usb-midi interface reliably. I had an M-Audio Uno which worked great on 10.3.3. On 11.3 it keeps stopping and a dialog is displayed stating that the "accessory is unsupported".

I think this is related to the M-Audio using more than 100mA. My lightning adapter couldn't inject voltage, so I looked at getting a Bluetooth MIDI adapter.

recovering deleted files vfat linux - picasa deleted my pictures

Ok, I accept a little bit of the blame for this one. I started to import my photos using picasa. The first three pictures that were imported were poor, so I decided to delete them. At that point they were the only pictures in the folder, so Picasa decided to delete the folder, even though an import was going on to that folder. All the rest of the pictures went into the abyss. Pretty lame IMHO. Picasa should probably check that it's copying the files to a good location before deleting them from the card.

using a mimo um-710 on linux (displaylink) with udlfb driver

We've had this dream for some time of having a display that we can control from our desktops but mounted in the hallway. The idea would be to use the sign in place of post-it notes or some other sort of messageboard arrangement. We've tried the Kodak EX811 in the past with limited success, we used mediatomb to control the kodak, but wheneverthe wireless network had problems or the kodak got confused, it would just go to a blank screen, hardly useful.

Rifftrax for the Matrix using sharecrow matrix.crow

A couple of friends and I decided to try out rifftrax. We decided on the Matrix as our first film. Rifftrax.com is a great idea, finally the MST3k style can be applied to movies too popular or expensive to otherwise make fun of. We eventually enjoyed the riff, but syncing wasn't as simple as we had hoped. We initally just opened up two vlc windows and manually synced that way. One great line was in the dojo, Morpheus: "You think that's air you're breathing?" Riff: "Little baby thinks he's breathing air little baby air breather" I enclose my crow file, I hope it works for someone.
