Linux wireless

Networkmanager should do the job for you if you have the right module for your wireless adapter configured in your kernel. Way better than it was in the old days. Look at dmesg to see if the module came up correctly when it booted.

Here is mon problème: I’ve been lazy learning all these Linux things, so each operation is a chore it should not be. Perhaps this is what I will do, though, patiently, later tonight.

Better ask for help from the experts on your distro, I use an arcane one, so beyond that I’m not much use.

The experts don’t know — or at least not the people who speak in the fora. It is semi daunting and I keep hoping the next version will solve it, but generally the next version makes it worse. It’s the one bad thing about Linux, I’ve never had a Linux machine that could really handle wireless. The issue is that configuration in the kernel, yes!

Then the key is to find the missing module, get the kernel sources, set the necessary flags in .config, compile and install, and point your boot loader at the new kernel. It’s more effort than mowing the lawn, but less than a properly done 10-page undergraduate term paper. Most distros have instructions for this process, and tools to ease the pain. Valium is also good.

Noam Chomsky

Here we have a piece on Chomsky to read.

Here we have the first month of Hattie‘s blog, November 2005. I started three months later, in February, 2006, and Hattie died in November, 2017. This means we have twelve years of blog posts from Hattie to review, 144 months.

This month, this year, every day I will reaffirm that I am a professor and deserve as much autonomy and authority as other professors. As we know, I never gave myself the chance or more accurately, I only gave myself the chance in certain ways and during certain short periods. I have to do it daily now, regardless of what I decide ultimately.

I will inherit less than was implied. It is very interesting; I knew from the first day I would not be happy as a professor or really be support myself as one, but the family insisted I continue, to remain in their good graces since I wasn’t competent at life, they said.

I don’t know how well I would have done at the things I thought of doing or those I wanted to try, but the inheritance will not be game-changing. Also my father, who is the only one now in charge, would not have disinherited me in any case.

I have long wanted to go to law school. Perhaps I should do it now so that I can always do contract work, no matter how old I am. I would not have to practice long in a state that paid into Social Security to qualify for that, either.

The Enigma of Capital

What, if anything specific, in this book helps broaden the scope and deepen the analysis of my current article? (Capital, and liquid capital, move around and seep everywhere, we know this; how do those or other ideas illuminate the part of the puzzle I am trying to analyze?)

Chocant

Freshmen entering my university have at least a 2.5 GPA and 950 composite score on the SAT (old scale). Requirements for out-of-state and home-schooled students are noticeably higher, but still low. I had a GPA of 3.87 and my composite SAT score was 1410 (Verbal + Math). It is an enormous difference.

Our Scandinavian Christmas

Here is the exact meal. Later you make gizzard soup with vinegar, carrots and leeks, and sometimes extra apples and prunes.

Another epigraph

“The strong connection between diagnosis and political action cannot be ignored,” says Harvey, and I claim this is the key point for the current age. We are in the grip of capital, more than we know, and it is very difficult to see a way out.
