Well, I guess the good news is that my MacBook Pro can resample 400 large tiff files in just over 4min, while my iMac takes 18min.

The bad news is that I had to pay the MacBook Pro myself. 🤑

Best recent advice I've gotten: If you're running Ubuntu 18.04, ditch Nautilus and use Nero instead.

Last time I upgraded this machine to 18.04, it was a hot mess and I had to do a fresh install of 16.04. No issues with the upgrade this time and Archivematica 1.8 works (mostly).

I'm finally a sudoer in a legit Archivematica installation. 🍾

I've never taken so many screenshots as I did during this morning's Preservation Action Registries thingy.


It's like PCDM for digipres (but not really).

code4lib diversity scholarships are open! It's what got me to my first code4lib in 2012, when I couldn’t have otherwise afforded it. It’s a great opportunity. 2019.code4lib.org/general-info

Dumb questions from my computer. Of course I'm sure.

I’m going to start blocking out the periods of time when my students are working on my calendar just so I don’t have to simultaneously go to meetings (or lead them) AND have to field digitization questions that come up.

I have 3 students here now (2 of them just started this week). I just lead a digital preservation meeting with incoming slack questions and want to die.

So, Transkribus has to be trained with a few manual transcriptions. No time for that really. 🙃 At least not for a while.

at least it's identifiable letters as opposed to the rando-gliphy Acrobat Pro output

Running some manuscript tiffs through Transkribus and so far about 10% accuracy.

Is anyone else using this?

I should clarify that APFS isn't a ZFS system but has many of the same features like snapshots.

ZFS filesystems have prevented data loss for me over the years. After installing some sketchy software yesterday & getting nothing but kernel panics on my MacBook Pro, I was able to roll back to a system snapshot from an hour earlier thanks to macOS’s APFS. Panics are gone and I don’t have to re-edit this ProRes derivative video.

Technically not digital preservation but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

I should note that the preservation ffv1/mkv capture is safe on a ZFS system and S3. 😉

glad Asepsis was forked because these hidden files are cramping my style
