It was a foggy and smokey 0C (felt like -3C) start here this morning, but the fog has now gone downstream and we're now waiting for the wind to do a 180 to clear this smoke.

They did get 1 of them fires to the east of here (both about 30km away) out overnight though.

We only reached 16C (felt like 11C) here yesterday, whether that was due to the smoke cover or not who can say.

Anyhow we'll see how close we can get to that expected 20C today.

Cheers.

After a smokey sunset and sunrise here with the SW change blowing the smoke in from the Bees Nest fire SE of here, but thankfully that is clearing now that the wind is coming in from the east.

I also swept out another pound of dust from the last few days, but that I guess will be blowing back in again tomorrow as the westerlies return. :-(

Also after 3 nights of running the wood heater I'm now letting that burn out and go back to the solar heating (it's 27C downstairs while it's 12C, but feels like 6C, outside) until the next cold snap hits.

We're expecting 19C here today, 20C tomorrow and mid 20's into next week with no sub-zero lows.

Cheers.

Okay, I've received everything but my CPU for my new rig and haven't put it together yet. I also received my SSD for my old rig, installed it and loaded Linux Cinnamon on it. I then tried to download the graphics card driver for my RTX 2060 GPU, twice, and both times after a slow download it shows me a screen which says (I'm paraphrasing) that a few characters are indecipherable and can't be read. I also tried twice to download BOINC Manager but I received the same reading.

I can't help but wonder if my downloading from the Firefox browser is the cause. Is there a way to download them through the terminal command, which I am uncomfortable using?
Once you have Mint loaded you go to the Driver Manager and select the Nvidia driver over the Nouveau driver and once that is done you will then need to open a Terminal and type,
sudo apt-get install ocl-icd-libopencl1
, to load the OpenCL component and then you should be right to go.

Cheers.

As I wait for some dextrose to dissolve the temp outside has reached 8C, but it feels like -2C out in that wind in the shade, so I reckon that I'll stay in my 25C shed (yes the wood heater was run all night for the first time in years, mainly due to last night's server problems and GPU's going cold).

Cheers.

G'morning everyone, from a cold and gusty day in the highlands down under.

Now that the garbage bin has been brought in and another couple of pieces of wood put in the wood heater I'm now just waiting on my 2 fermenter kits to finish sterilising so I can then fire up the ring burner and start dissolving dextrose and sugar for these 2 brews.

I should have that all done by Beer O'clock, but for now I'll go and make myself a coffee.

Cheers.

2001 was the last bad bushfire season in this area of the state (I moved here just after the fires were done with) so we're certainly due for it.

If you zoom in on the Northern Tablelands you'll all see where Deepwater is (between Glen Innes and Tenterfield).

Well it looks like that this wild wind over the last few days has blown most of the dust away now (I was getting sick of breathing it while others here where just getting sick) so the sky is pretty clear again (if you don't look NE or SE where some large bushfires are being blown towards the coast), but that sun has no heat in it today (currently it's 9C, but feels like 1C) so I threw a load of wood into the wood heater downstairs and in 30mins the lower shed went from 12C to 25C (luckily the beer fridge is fully stocked as it may get a little crowded downstairs again today).

We're expecting 15C here today (if it gets that far) and tomorrow is expected to be worse with a temp range of -1C to 13C with even stronger winds while it looks like that we will get smoke from the bushfire SE of here Tuesday evening/Wednesday morning as a brief SE change interrupts these westerly winds, but the weather here will warm up again then.

Cheers.

So in other words, no straight answer and no matter what the subject you'll defend stupidity while attacking sensible solutions Clyde?

[edit] This is sounding a lot like Little Donny defending his hurricane map.

And yet again you evade the question Clyde.

That's not being at all morally credible is it?
