Insulin surge

Eh. I'm sorry to say. I don't see this day coming. 

I didn't think I'd see the day the price of insulin spiked that high either. But here we are.

Are they just bad images?

sudo dd bs=4M if=xenialpup-7.5-uefi.iso of=/dev/sda

I've now tried three different ISO's -- .BIN's

Using the dd command also trying a GUI ISO writer. And I'm still running into Com32 issues now?

I feel I need reliable internet. I'm downloading images through 4G getting 9-11Mbps // maxing out my bandwidth for the month. 
What is going on?

No more headphone jack -- Why I keep an older phone that still has a hexacore processor & 4Gb RAM -- all you need baby.

OnePlus is working on a followup to the OnePlus 6, the OnePlus 6T. The company's latest smartphone should launch sometime in October, and until then we're getting a slow, continual drip of information on the device. The latest news is not so great. The company has revealed that it's dumping the headphone jack on the OnePlus 6T.


Technology Racism -- it's a thing.

This is as bad as structural violence/structural racism. Welcome to the CHAOTIC world of Earth. Capitalism has infected the world.

What can a viral video of a “racist” soap dispenser tell you about the world of technology? A surprising amount, apparently. 

Chukwuemeka Afigbo, a Nigerian man who works in tech, tweeted a short video of a “racist” automatic soap dispenser that appears to dish out soap to a white person’s hand but not a black person’s. As you can tell by its 130,000+ retweets and the number of laughing emoji reactions it received, it can be seen simply as a funny viral video. 

But as Chukwuemeka points out, this highlights a bigger issue. The no-touch soap dispenser most likely uses some kind of light sensor to detect when a hand is beneath the contraption. Apparently, a dark-skinned hand wasn’t light enough to register on the sensor. This simple problem would have been avoided if it had been tested on a variety of skin tones. That, of course, requires people working in the industry from a variety of backgrounds.

There are plenty more examples of this. Soap dispensers, for one, seem to be particularly bad at dealing with different skin tones. In the past, Flickr and Google were both forced to apologize when their automatic image labeling systems were tagging photos of black people with “ape” and “gorilla". 


dd to save a life?

Now computer world is throwing me for a loop. I want to create a bootable thumb drive. With TRK let's leave it. -- Yes i've used this before. Yes, I've done all these methods before. Yes, I've used the .ISO even, or alternative methods.

1. sudo dd if=trinity-rescue-kit.3.4-build-372.bin of=/dev/sda bs=4M

2. I used YUMI, I dd'd the file. I zipped/un-zipped -- I keep getting ONE error, "No configuration file found" removing file entry.

I've tried previous versions to the ISO. No luck... :(

Should move the .ISO onto my thumb drive. (After verifying partitions with lsblk)

lsblk == display block size information -- Basically FDISK without the disk partitions. It's all in block sizes.

Why can I not, Sure, it moves the .bin/.iso file onto the thumb drive. -- But the thumb drive is not bootable as it should be?

Why doesn't that make sense, you see.... all I'm doing is copying files from an extracted ISO/IMG/BIN file

moving them onto a thumb drive and the thumb drive should be bootable. -- BUT WHY, do these computers not recognize it as an operating system... I do not compute.

Yes, I've tried USB boot creators -- SAME result. == NOT FUN.

But then if i do the .BIN file, it creates correct files. just no boot??

This is ALWAYS WHERE YUMI, comes into play::::
