I wonder if there comes a point where these things take less than an hour each to write.
"Hey, why don't I do one of those 'Advent of $foo' things and write a short blog post every day until Christmas", I said to myself at dinnertime.

Systemd Vs openwrt with static dhcp6 leases: no winners
Today I drilled six holes in the wall and mounted a panel heater. I feel like the God of DIY
I don't understand why "Rails is the best because it makes the decisions for you" is made as an argument in its favour. You can pick any other combination of technologies you like and still make the same decisions as Rails did, if indecisiveness is what's stopping you from work
My interest in graphing my weight seems to correlate very closely with my perception of whether I'm losing any. Funny, that
using love2d and #lua to prototype the colour transitions I want in my christmas neopixel string, because shorter feedback cycles than uploading to an arduino every time I make a change. I think I may have a bit more floating point in this program than the target hw is going to like, though
Also: 128 byte limit on mqtt packet size? That's not a lot of bits for 144 rgb leds
Elite Dangerous (including the Horizons DLC which is pretty core to the current galaxy) is FREE from the Epic Games store for the next week ...
The game is completely free-to-play once you have it - there is no mechanism for players to pay money and get better resources, only cosmetics. This means that if you end up competing with other players (which isn't necessary anyway, and you can exclude this by settings) you are on an equal footing with only time/skills invested.
Elite Dangerous is a beautiful and immense, absorbing game. It's almost a "space simulator" with a 1:1 model of our galaxy and for the populated regions a well-balanced economic model.
Seriously, to search for screenshots and videos. If you don't already have a copy of this game, get one while its free!!
Who'd like to recommend a UK source for decent (robust plugs, wire thicker than a piece of string) micro-USB cables that isn't Amazon?
✓added doors to daughter's ikea wardrobe (only ... 2 years? ... after putting it together) ✓ removed nfs exports on home server ✓ switched kodi box from nfs to sftp, added ssh key for it on home server ✓ retagged most of my digital music collection (beets ftw) ? stopped home server from going to sleep 20 minutes after I log out on the console (https://discourse.nixos.org/t/stop-pc-from-sleep/5757 - tried this but waiting for 20 minutes to elapse)
Since we now have a Google phones-Home in the house, I'm clamping down on any service on the lan that's not authenticated/encrypted
I have a nixos box that I am using as an HTPC. It works well except I can’t...NixOS Discourse
Interesting OS security project: https://spectrum-os.org
* each app runs in a separate KVM container
* each VM is generated by a #Nix derivation
* graphics output is composited together via wayland/virtio
The idea is not too dissimilar to #QubesOS
, with the following main differences:
* Xen -> KVM
* Fedora/Debian -> #NixOS
* Xorg -> wayland/virtio
You can read more about the details here: https://spectrum-os.org/design.html
Using airsonic (Linux) to serve music to ultrasonic (android) via sniproxy (to make my ip6 web servers available over ipv4) I finally have music streaming from my home media collection to my 4g phone. And the UI is not awful either
Writeup to follow
I just impulse-bought a No.4 plane on ebay. Not only do I not know how to sharpen it, I'm frankly a little sketchy on how even to use it.
This is going to go well.
I am very very tempted to switch all the #nixwrt startup scripts from #lua to #fennel just because I keep burning myself on uninitialized variables (typos, or writing
e when I meant
event and vice versa) and it's painful. But I mean, the whole nixwrt thing is already prettty niche, am I going to make it even nichier?
seems my twitter tab is harder on firefox when it's sitting there invisible in the background than my fediverse tab when I'm actively scrolling

(Fix) Fixed an issue where SAMSUNG PM871 SSD might not be detected correctly after system restart.
Hmm, let's hope this helps with the PM951 as well
Accidentally building gtk3 emacs from source on my son's minecraft laptop, because I forgot its nixos config includes my personal package list in case I have to login and admin it
It's already got past the undump, I may as well let it finish now
