Syslog showed EDAC errors starting 11 days after I got the system, calling out

Calories per Mile
Josh 2014
joshdavis
This is a SWAG for calories burned cycling 12-15mph:

* Divide your feet climbed by 10.
* Divide again by your average MPH.
* Add that to your total miles.
* Multiply the new number by the weight in pounds of you, your bike, and everything you're carrying.
* Multiply the new number by 0.105

Docker Debian autoinstall fails
Josh 2014
joshdavis
Debian (and Ubuntu and others) use apt, aptitude, apt-get, and dpkg. apt currently requires the Release keys to match in a complex way. Mondo, Docker, and many other projects have problems making a repo actually work. The telltale failure is similar to this:

Anthropomorphism
Josh 2014

He grabbed her elbow with his giant hands, twisting, and pulling, until the crunch.

With a grunt, all of the ligaments snapped, and the entire radius was pulled through the skin.

He put the rest of her forearm in his giant mouth, and using his teeth, scraped and slurped all of her muscles loose.
