Aperiodic reminder: clean the dust out of your PC fans, if you have them and there is any. My CPU temps under load have dropped from 80° to 35°
creative use of xargs -0 flag:
$ cat /proc/41262/environ |xargs -0 -n1 echo
(the "environ" files in proc directories show the process environment with ASCII NUL (\0) characters between each entry. We can use xargs -0 to break it into lines)
I read recently that they'd discovered ancient waterproof trousers near Mount Ararat, thought to have been worn by Noah. If this is true, they'll be Waders of the Lost Ark

Motorola G5 Plus (potter) runs nixos! Waiting for PR review https://github.com/NixOS/mobile-nixos/pull/359
Based closely on addison, but with a different kernel upstream boots into...GitHub
#issuecomment-851418520" rel="nofollow">https://github.com/NixOS/mobile-nixos/pull/359#issuecomment-851418520 eventually persuaded mobile-nixos to produce a boot image small enough to flash to the motorola potter (G5 Plus) boot partition. Little bit of cleanup still required (touchscreen powerup and calibration) but hopefully soon this will be good enough to merge
Replaced gear hanger on daughter's bike and now she can change into every gear from 1 to 7, whereas previously it wouldn't enter or exit gear 1. I am quite pleased with this diagnosis as the hanger was not visibly bent at all.
I asked Sinead O'Connor to measure 3.5 inches, but she refused. She says that nothing compares 2U?
Here's my favorite git feature that no one knows about:
You can reference commits using the commit message instead of the hash. The ":/" syntax accepts a regex that matches any part of the commit message, returning the youngest matching commit.
TIL about c++ references. At least, a little. I am hoping that my mental model of "do this voodoo to avoid pass-by-copying semantics" is sufficient to avoid my arduino sketch crashing due to inadvertently creating two mqtt PubSubClients
Would anyone like to co-sign my petition on banning the extraction and use of peat in the UK? I only need 5 signatures for it to be considered for publication.
Any UK resident or British citizen overseas can sign.

"Use MQTT", they said. "It's low overhead, simple and you can send anything you like".
Yeah, until you want anything else at all to receive it, in which case if you decided that instead of JSON-encoding all the values in your payload (yes, let's put the burden on the battery-powered low-cpu embedded iot device using an mqtt library with a 256 byte payload size limit) you'd send a binary encoding, you're basically SOL
@firstname.lastname@example.org have you re-uploaded a bunch of fennel tarballs recently? Either https://fennel-lang.org/downloads/fennel-0.9.1.tar.gz has changed sha256 or Nix is lying to me

I decided that the world does not have enough init replacements already, and because of the risk that anyone else might otherwise find it useful I decided to write it in Fennel.
Wrote a blog post last night and it seems to still make as much sense now as it did when I posted it, so here you are - https://ww.telent.net/2021/4/30/what_s_up_d
