Schon der Mord am 35. US-Präsidenten John F. Kennedy war reichlich rätselhaft, hatte doch ein politisch verwirrter Ex-Marine geschossen.

@qqmrichter What audio subsystem are you using?

#Bluetooth is a fiendishly complicated protocol. I've used it on-and-off since about 2008 or so. #Android uses a completely different stack to desktop Linux. Things may be better on Windows, but there were as many as 3 different BT stacks for Windows (Toshiba, Widcomm, Microsoft).

Early attempts used an #ALSA kernel driver for Bluetooth… worked, but 8kHz mono is not the way I like to listen to music. And I'd imagine, unless your choice of music is 1930s swing, probably not yours either.

BlueZ (the standard Bluetooth stack on most Linux systems) pivoted across to doing it in user-space using PulseAudio. That worked okay for A2DP one-way audio, but for full-duplex audio, it is limiting. Notably, I found I couldn't get mSBC CODEC working, so full-duplex audio was 8kHz not 16kHz.

Most of the effort is going into linking #BlueZ and #pipewire, which I think will be the #PulseAudio successor (and may also displace #JACK.. as it has features of both systems).

Pipewire was written to do video actually (webcams), but then evolved to do audio too out of necessity. It's experimental, but I find works more reliably with Bluetooth. (And plays nicer with sound cards than JACK.)

We took backroads to one of her go-to lunch spots and enjoyed catching up all afternoon, doing errands afterward and touring her backyard to boot.

I took a selfie of us but touched the screen and ruined the focus. (I need to figure out how to turn off touchscreen features on all cameras.) At least the photo of her dog Mac turned out okay.

One last tidbit, I hadn’t noticed her late husband Jack had started to paint scenes on the kitchen cabinets before he passed—something he’d done in all their houses.

I’ve since been thinking a more about my Uncle and his paintings… large canvases with horses and scenes from Kentucky. I always admired his ability to capture light and color that felt impressionistic up close but clearly defined from a short viewing distance. My aunt said he painted cityscapes on the cabinets of their first house (she’s looking for photos of those.)

She sent me home with a fresh batch of homemade cinnamon muffins with chunks of apple. They are other-worldly good. Seriously better than anything I’ve had from a bakery. Next time I’m coming over early because I want to see whatever magic goes into making them if she’ll share her secret.

Jack is 100% sabotaging Twitter/X. LOL. This is a brilliant move from Jack to promote BlueSky or Mastodon. Please don't remove the block function. It avoids harassment, scam, and spam. I blocked 100s of accounts. It is essential function. #twitter #birdsite #elonmusk #jack

The platform's owner, Elon Musk, announced plans to do away with X's block feature in a series of posts on Friday. The owner said blocking "makes no sense." In the post, he noted that capabilities of the feature will be stripped down to only being able to block another user from sending direct messages.

#linux #audio #jack #reaper #guitar #tutorial

Allan Parker, president of the far right Christian Nationalist
organization #Justice #Foundation, urged lawmakers to introduce resolutions declaring the month of June to be “Christian History Month.”

Parker’s comments make it clear that religious-right leaders would use any state-designated “Christian History Month” as an official vehicle for promoting false and exclusionary #Christian #nationalist versions of American history, the kind promoted relentlessly by right-wing activists like #David #Barton, his son #Tim, and pastors like #Jackson #Lahmeyer and #Jack #Hibbs.
The National Association of Christian Lawmakers #NACL was founded by unabashed Christian nationalist and former Arkansas state senator #Jason #Rapert, who is quite open about his intention to do everything that he can to ensure that Christians who share his far-right worldview “take authority” over every aspect of this nation.

No, Elon and Jack are not “competitors.” They’re collaborating

This must have been what
#jack meant by saying he trusted Elon's "singular" mission to "extend the light of consciousness."


Elon is hiding the cap table for X Corp. He doesn’t want anyone to know who owns it. But we know, at minimum, besides Elon, Qataris, Saudis, Jack Dorsey are shareholders. Who else? It’s under seal. 95 line items. 🤔

Ok. Got the invite and signed up. Followed some people, found that people aren’t using #Hashtags like they should (yet?) and the app seems smooth.

My big issue is that this is from Jack who helped fund and supported Musk’s take over of Twitter so there’s no guarantee he won’t f-ck us all over again and protect the scumbags he protected on Twitter.

Anywho— I’m on there looking around. I’m @ kbsez over there too. Say hi.

On the bright side, #Elmo and #Jack are having a spat I guess?

If this wasn’t such a serious subject it would be entirely comical. While #Twitter wasn’t perfect about CSAM, it wasn’t a rampant problem to my knowledge.

OTOH, Musk literally just fired the entire team that worked on child protection, leaving it almost entirely unmoderated. And the Trust and Safety Council are all quitting over it.

Children should not be responsible for the safety of children. Look at this shit.

5:58 PM Fri Dec 9 Tweet Elon Musk & @elonmusk • 7h It is a crime that they refused to take action on child exploitation for years! 
jack & @jack • 6h this is false. 
Elon Musk & @elonmusk • 5h No, it is not. When Ella Irwin, who now runs Trust & Safety, joined Twitter earlier this year, almost no one was working on child safety. She raised this with Ned & Parag, but they rejected her staffing request. made it top priority immediately. @ellagirwin 
 jack @jack Replying to @elonmusk @Cernovich and 4 others I don't know what happened in past year. But to say we didn't take action for years isn't true. You can make all my emails public to verify. Company took away my access to email or would. 1:52 PM • 12/9/22 • Twitter for iPhone

#linuxtablet #linuxaudio The state of #jack inter-app audio is alive and well, and there are many supportive users requesting it for current linux audio apps. However, according to something I read about Paul Davis recently, the main reason he turned the JACK project over to others is because DAWs on Linux now support plugins (LV2, VST, etc), and he felt that JACK’s usefulness was reduced due to the popularity of plugins. That may or may not turn out to be true. I’ll have to watch and see.

2 years ago

#linuxtablet #linuxaudio So to sum everything up thus far, #pipewire replaces #jack, and #nsm manages the applications in the pro audio session. #Agordejo is the recommended GUI interface for NSM. There seems to be several JACK graph based patch panel apps that can be used to make the actual jack connections between the audio apps, prior to saving the whole session with Agordejo. I’m not clear yet on which is the recommended or the best of the lot.

2 years ago

#linuxtablet #linuxaudio One thing I learned is that pipewire’s concept of what a session is and does is different from JACK’s concept. #wireplumber, the current #pipewire session manager does not include the ability to save and restore audio applications (along with their jack connections. This is the whole point of #jack session management—to easily come back to a project later and not have to hook everything up again before starting to work on a project.

2 years ago

#linuxtablet #linuxaudio I’ve been studying pipewire (with emphasis on its uses within the realm of Linux Pro Audio) to see if it offers any relevance in the post “host as session manager” linux audio world.

As a quick refresher, Jack Audio Connection Kit ( #jack ) was created as a form of low latency inter-app audio&midi communication. This, along with JACK session management, was the original foundation of Linux pro audio—prior to the existence of audio DAWs that host VST or LV2 plugins.
