The Monk Sails North

The question was why use the painting called “The Monastery” as the image on the last blog post. The answer is Webb Chiles refers to going to sea as entering the monastery of the sea.

Into the Monastery

Every once in a while I will look back at this blog of a year ago to see what I was doing then. I was wondering what the weather was like. It turns out it was milder, no surprise. I was working on the exterior of the boat and building the outrigger canoe.

Bon Voyage Crawdad

The cold snap, which is the coldest weather I have experienced down here in St Marys seemed to persist longer than forecast, about a week. It has been freezing overnight and most of the mornings, temperature going down to 28 on successive nights. This is nothing compared to what people up North are [...]

The Penguins Have Us

The coooold snap that is freezing us to death is only affecting the Keys a bit, maybe ten degrees less, so 50‘s and 60‘s instead of 60‘s and 70‘s, or 70‘s and 80‘s. The Keys and Bahamas are where to be in the dead of winter.

Happy New Year Chart Wrap Up

It is Sunday, New Year's Eve Day, and I have come down with a cold. My chart work is finished. I can't imagine going outside to work on the hull bottoms now. I may run out of paper towels to sop up my runny nose.

Surrender

When THE COMPUTER GUY was talking to me about running shell scripts to convert old charts I had mentioned I liked to manually crop each chart and save it from the image manipulation program. Every chart. He looked at me funny. The shell scripts are ways to do a lot of that manual data processing and [...]

Xfburn fix for Navigatrix

13 December 2017 | st marys, ga
Capn Andy/chilly winter
OK, we had to get an external cd/dvd drive for the CF-C1, since the laptop doesn’t have an internal drive. One task is to re-rip some of my music CD’s so that I have mp3 files for my mp3 player instead of the wma files I have now. Another task is to make a copy of Garmin’s old Mapsource topographic maps for a fellow yardbird who wants to use them for hiking and exploring, nothing to do with nautical.
.
The drive worked fine copying the disk image file to the hard drive, but when we wanted to burn the blank disc, it wasn’t recognized as a disk burner, “No disk burner found” was the error message. I was using Navigatrix’s Xfburn. After some reading on the internet I found lots of help, some of it very dense, but in the end we got it to work properly.
.
First is the command lsusb, where the l is ell not one, which is entered in the terminal in accessories.
.
This returns a list of usb devices which can let you know if the system even sees the drive. Because we were able to use it to read a disk, it was in the list.
.
The next command is dmesg | tail which returns a list of usb device parameters, including the dvd drive’s name and serial number.
.
The next command is ls /dev/sr* which returns the device name sr0.
.
Next we enter udevadm info --name=/dev/sr0 --query=all which returns a whole big list of parameters, including the drive’s serial number. Note that in this command we are entering the device name sr0, if the previous command gave out a different device name we would use that.
.
Next we paste the following command in a text editor: SUBSYSTEM=="block", ENV{ID_CDROM}=="?*", ENV{ID_SERIAL}=="xxxxxxx", ENV{ID_TYPE}="cd", ENV{GENERATED}="1", and edit the “xxxxxxx” by replacing it with the drive’s serial number. I used the ID_SERIAL= which is a long model and serial number.
.
Now we  sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules to open an editing page on the terminal, kind of like Microsoft’s registry edit, and paste in it our previous “SUBSYSTEM blahty blah” with its edited serial number. On the bottom of the page are the commands to get out of the registry edit, control x gets you started.
.
After you finish this mess you remove the dvd drive from the usb port, then plug it back in. When you try it now in Xfburn it will recognize the drive and allow it to burn a disk.
.
The image is the terminal page that has the serial number
