scanbuttond: filtering syslog

In a previous post I started setting up scanner button support on debian, tonight I filtered the messages that appear every two seconds in the log stating that there are no scanners attached.

I opted to just drop all the scanbuttond messages, so I added a file /etc/rsyslogd.d/scanbuttond.conf with the contents
:app-name, equals, "scanbuttond"  ~
and that dropped all the scanbuttond messages.

Another night I will make the buttons do something.

furniture building work

I was working at a furniture warehouse, and when they tried me on building I just went with it, and read the directions as I went. Apparently that makes me a natural at building furniture, so I get to do it more now. Building simple things based on directions seems meditative.
