Ducks in a row.

I'm down to the Raspberry Pi 4 and I don't trust it sufficiently. I have a verbal agreement with my son about the Bitcoin he mined and then lost interest in. That's locked in. And once I have the wallet, I intend to put QR codes on content that I publish.

Besy Buy has the $899 model in stock. All the extra $200 gets is 256Gb of drive space. I'd have more interest in double the RAM.

The XFi just came down off a lift and to looks like except for a missing tailpipe hanger, the boots and CV joints and axles are Okay.

I would drive up and give you 14ea 50s, and then drive up again so you don't have to float the deal. I can visit my brother in Perrydale.

edit:

Pleez don't feel bad if I cut you out of the deal. He's checking to see if they're available in Salem or Lebanon.

Don't want a profit, but happy to help if I can. I trust you're good for the float.

EDIT: I happen to be yer neck of the woods again.

Whelp, I need to be in Albany in 45 minutes. I guess I won't make it that far North this time.

Next time, perhaps when we're allowed to enjoy a meal like civilized people.

Also, you had better be on the road now.

Enjoy!

I was.

Home again, but I'm still on the Raspberry Pi. I'll get an activation code for some antivirus software at Best Buy tomorrow.

They didn't even let me take the Aeron chair home.

I looked at Tom's Hardware www.tomsguide.com/best-picks/best-mac-antivirus and they rank Bit Defender, Kaspersky and Norton 360 as first, second and third.

Last time I drove all the way to Fry's to get Kaspersky, because they're the ones that outed Stuxnet. But it's really hard to find. So I think I'll go with Norton. $25/year and it has a password manager and VPN.

There is already malware recompiled to run on the M1 chip.
