I am somewhere between pleasantly shocked and mildly alarmed that the arduino sketch I wrote for the seeed wio link (which is now tracking the temperature in my study) appears to have compiled and uploaded - at least to the extent that it gets serial output - on this "Witty Cloud" esp12f module http://adityatannu.com/blog/post/2016/01/31/ESP8266-Witty-Cloud-Board-Demo.html
It doesn't seem to have come back properly from deep sleep, though. Maybe it doesn't have the RST pin wired the same way
Need to choose Lithium battery chemistry vs NiMH for an esp8266 project - I don't need the weight advantage and I quite like not having the battery burst into flame while charging it, but wondering if there's any significant environmental considerations to take into account. I know lithium mining's not pretty
I have no "off-facebook activity"? Dont entirely trust that, but thank you, Tinfoil and Firefox Containers
The #1 disconcerting thing about learning Haskell is that my intuitions about how long it should take me to do something are so utterly off beam.
"Make the table name a parameter based on the mqtt topic? sure, easy!" "HAHAH. WRONG KIND OF STRING, MORTAL"
I self-host my personal email. I increasingly wonder why, though, I get about one email every three days that isn't spam or marketing. Outside of work (separate account, separate computers) Fediverse/Forums/Whatsapp/Facebook/Twitter have between them supplanted email for almost all of my digital communications.
Searching the internet for latissimus dorsi, and thinking that "Spinous processes of vertebrae T7-L5" would make a fine Culture ship name
Its January, meaning New Years Resolutions. Over the past week and a half I have attended four #yoga classes in person, done two yoga YouTube vids, and now while pruning rose bushes pulled a muscle somewhere near my left shoulder blade. Fucking ow, but also rather embarrassed
i have a very efficient metabolism i can sustain myself for days on a single boost
MNT Reform will be a test case for DIN SPEC 3015 (new open hardware standard) and we will work with Fairtronics to determine component fairness. Also looking into the Grüne Punkt as recycling program for the packaging
I had planned to spend 20 minutes this morning looking over my first attempt at writing a haskell program to implement the programming assessment task we use for interviewing candidates at $WORK
(Can tell you now, (a) I probably wouldn't have a job here if I'd attempted the task using Haskell, (b) not only did it take a very long time, it's not very Haskelly code either)
That was at 09:30 and I haven't actually started yet. When I got my laptop out of my locker I realised it's still on nixos 19.03 and I need to upgrade firefox before anything bad happens
I must admit to some surprise just how much of a struggle I'm having using haskell in nixos (example: I want to use the net-mqtt library). I thought haskell was approximately a first-class citizen of nix
Using haddock version 2.22.0 found on system at:
No happy found
Checks out :-(
Fulfilling the Java promise of Write Once Run Everywhere, albeit for significantly suboptimal values of "everywhere"
Not done a whole lot of nixwrt implementation lately, but the next thing I want to do is make it talk to an actual ISP (PPPoE) and I can't exactly test that without unplugging the real router, which will make many (well, maybe about 4) people quite unhappy.
Or maybe I can, if I set up a stub ISP. Welcome to Nixwrt OnLine: https://github.com/telent/nixwrt/blob/master/nol.nix

Thus ends this year of public wonder and mischief to this nation, and, therefore, generally wished by all people to have an end.
End-of-the-month (and year!) Pine64 update over on our forum. It's not as long-form or polished as the normal 5th-of-the-month blog posts, but there's still lot of info here!
I'm not a big fan of change.org as a platform, but this seems like a worthy cause. As the architect of "Universal Credit", awarding IDS a knighthood is a slap in the face for pretty much everybody who's ever had recourse to our social safety net
Change.org is the world’s largest petition platform, using technology to...Change.org
Iain Duncan-Smith should not receive a KnighthoodChange.org
Lately I've seen some incorrect statements and facts about Linux on mobile being thrown around, and I decided to write a blog post to give some more correct info. Please give it a read https://fam-ribbers.com/2019/12/28/State-of-Linux-on-mobile-and-common-misconceptions.html
If you see any mistakes I've made, please correct me!
[1227/215535.119660:ERROR:frame_sink_video_capturer_impl.cc(197)] Invalid resolutions constraints: 0x0 must not be greater than 0x0; and also within media::limits.
Last time I checked 0 was not greater than 0, but hey, I realise this stuff is not universal
There are definitely other things I could say about ath9k and ath10k and wireless regulatory domains in embedded Linux, but this blog post is too long already and it would probably require having more than the handwaviest idea of what I'm talking about. Plus I'm sick of it. Happy Christmas, if that's your bag.
