My icy Trachycarpus Fortunei :-)

After being ill for over a week I was out of the house last afternoon to inspect my Trachycarpus Fortunei palm tree, which had to endure snow, ice, and freezing rain lately.

The result of all that harsh weather is somewhat awkward ..

Pretty cool, and it will survive ๐Ÿ™‚

Half of #debian died.

Hey Ian,

You shouldn’t have done this. Barriers are never too high.
But since this happened, there is no way back. I will never know your reasons.
The only thing left for me to do is to keep using Debian, and think about you every time I login.

Thanks for everything you brought to the world. Debian, open source, and you, in my memories for ever.

Your name will always be there, in deb-ian.

RIP.
You ruled man, we will miss you very bad.

Sorry for the downtime.

But that fantastisch plumber that fixed it for me, can get a website, hosted by me, for little money.

So, yes you can!

This is a Trachycarpus Fortunei, it can withstand frost up to -17C. If you want to grow this Palm in my area it is best to only trim really dead, totally brown leaves, nothing more.

Ttyl, but there is one more thing:

Gimme some more Pi!

Ok, here it is, my brand new Raspberry Pi 2 Model B.
Specs:

A 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU
1GB RAM
Like the (Pi 1) Model B+, it also has:

4 USB ports
40 GPIO pins
Full HDMI port
Ethernet port
Combined 3.5mm audio jack and composite video
Camera interface (CSI)
Display interface (DSI)
Micro SD card slot
VideoCore IV 3D graphics core

When I start my project I’ll report. Probably I will test my download station on this one, and check out it’s performance. After that I will try some backup functions with plane rsync, or lftpd, and Bacula DR.
