I don’t like that I now have to think twice before printing PDFs — I find more and more they’re not actually designed to be printed — just viewed.
The reason: all the background colour. White text on a dark background looks nice on a produced brochure or report, or on a website, but not when I’m printing it at home to read in detail. It just hurts to think of all that ink being wasted — even if I print in grayscale.
Here’s a possible guideline: don’t design a PDF page that will be so wet with ink that it will warp as it comes off a consumer printer.
Step 6 took place within the BOOT folder — so really just copying the uImage_OPI-2 file over uImage, and script.bin.OPI-PC_720p60 over script.bin. First make sure you’ve copied the most up-to-date versions of those two files into the BOOT folder.
My initial error on step 6 was to assume that I was copying from the non-SD location and copying onto the SD. So I started in dev/sda and tried copying into dev/sdb (i.e. BOOT)

A few years ago she wrote a history of the prosperity gospel, and this article is a sort of mini history, particularly looking at how it shaped the ways in which Christians respond to “bad things” including impending death.
The prosperity gospel has taken a religion based on the contemplation of a dying man and stripped it of its call to surrender all. Perhaps worse, it has replaced Christian faith with the most painful forms of certainty. The movement has perfected a rarefied form of America’s addiction to self-rule, which denies much of our humanity: our fragile bodies, our finitude, our need to stare down our deaths (at least once in a while) and be filled with dread and wonder. At some point, we must say to ourselves, I’m going to need to let go.
Many of her points also permeate the non-prosperity North American church. She deals with the religious, the cultural, and the personal with depth, humour, and frankness.
Cancer requires that I stumble around in the debris of dreams I thought I was entitled to and plans I didn’t realize I had made.
But cancer has also ushered in new ways of being alive.
