There were about 15 tūī enjoying the kōwhai out the front of my place this afternoon, it was glorious!

Te wiki o te reo Māori

In Ubuntu, 14.04 (Trusty) was the last version that supported Te Reo Māori as a language. Since then the support for it has fallen away. But you can still install the language packs to get some kupu in your menus and dialogs.

mkdir -p ~/language-pack-mi
cd ~/language-pack-mi


sudo apt install ./*.deb

You'll also need to change your Language settings ..

But I did go home instead of heading out for dinner and a drink with them.

Fuck Covid.

Ohh, nice. (1.5 hours ago) past me turned the electric blanket on.

urgle .. today is Tuesday .. not Monday. This does change some timelines.

Been putting some hooks up in the garage so I could store the ply up off the ground.

Not too worried about being evenly spaced, but careful measuring to make sure the 3 hooks are horizontal and in the middle of the studs for maximum stability and strength. Drilled holes for the coach screw to make sure they didn't bind.

The last turn on the last screw .. ..

When I double-glaze the ranch slider, I must remember to specify glass that will still allow that warming winter sunshine to come through.

The heatpump is on, but my laptop and I have abandoned the desk in the study for the radiant warmth from the sun in the lounge.
