Linux shit, Dynebolic 

I'm having trouble booting Dynebolic from a USB flash drive. I wrote the ISO successfully using the Gnome Disks tool and couldn't boot it on either of two computers.

So I tried writing the ISO using Etcher and it gives me the error "It looks like this is not a bootable image. The image does not appear to contain a partition table, and might not be recognized or bootable by your device."

I don't have a before and after here, but I hit my step count before noon!

After an indigenous mother was arrested at a political protest against Line 3 her child was stolen by the non indigenous / non custodial father. Please help return this child to their mother, as the baby is still breast feeding.

Mowed the lawn and used clippings to build up the hügelkultur bed. It's been a productive day.

Coil for a coil-shortened vertical antenna.

It will be attached to a mast (actually a large fishing pole) with a wire going up from the red banana jack and radial wires coming out from the black banana jack. This acts as the ground.

There will also be an alligator clip attached to the red banana jack which can be clipped of the coil, shorting it out to change the inductance, which essentially tunes the antenna to whatever part of the band I want to use.

How to power a Raspberry Pi AND a ham radio from a drill battery.

Two wires come out of the positive and negative terminals of the drill battery and go into a buck converter which takes the 20 volts DC down to 12 volts DC.

The 12 volts go down to a homemade splitter. One end sends 12 volts to the radio. The other side goes to the buck converter from the previous toot, which takes 12 volts down to 5 volts to power the Pi.

How to power a Raspberry Pi off of a lead acid battery.

The device inside the case is called a buck converter. It takes the 12 volts from the battery and steps it down to 5 volts that the Raspberry Pi can use.

Alligator clips are definitely not the best thing to use, but it's what i have right now.

I'll be replacing the lead acid with a LiFePo4 battery. (Lithium Iron Phosphate) Somewhat less bad for the environment.
