MarshMan is working hard to document NEMS Linux WMI support for monitoring Windows-based network assets. bp9 has received his Pinebook Pro, and it's glorious: He's completely pimped it out the way he wants, with XFCE and xearth. Robbie received a new Raspberry Pi High Quality camera, along with the two available lenses, plus a Raspberry Pi 4 8 GB with an Argon ONE case. Can MikroTik bond multiple network connections? Sure, but Robbie has only ever used failover. Peter has figured out how to control sine waves using a Raspberry Pi, a few buttons, and a custom circuit. Joining Robbie Ferguson this week are bp9, Marshman, and Peter Lewis.
