We're working on our own cluster of RockPro64 boards to power our infrastructure. Something like this might become available in the future.

In the meantime, we have the SOPine Clusterboard: store.pine64.org/?product=clus. 28 cores and 14GB of RAM in a compact package for just barely over $300. :)

Really enjoyed this talk on how we're bad at teaching programming. Maybe exploration isn't the answer.



This is the kind of market regulation I can get behind. Is it fair to ruin a company over an accidental data breach? Yes, because it gives companies a great incentive to not store any of your data in the first place!

Capitalism is quietly erasing the idea of private property. All products are effectively becoming rentals, and the companies can revoke your right to use them whenever they feel like it. It's becoming increasingly difficult to actually own anything. Media is streamed, and devices are locked from the users.

It's hilarious how all the things people were afraid of happening under communism are actually happening under capitalism.


We need a totally peer to peer decentralized internet.

There is one out there I can't remember the name of it but it's slow and clunky.

We need a real free decentralized internet, free of ICANN and all the rest of it that works and is efficient.

One free of corps like Google, Facebook and all the rest. Like the fediverse where if they show up we just block there domain and they disappear.

Getting back into personal accounting after a ~2 year hiatus. How much money am I spending? WHO KNOWS? I will...after I get this figured out.

I figured this is the perfect time to finish ditch that crufty, fragile on GnuCash and move to , specifically .

Anybody else doing it? What I really want to do is monthly reconciliations. I cannot find any tutorials online about what the usual workflow is to reconcile. I've pieced together it will involve setting transaction statuses and something about assertions? Do I have to edit every transaction by hand to change its status? I feel like there should be an obvious tool to do all of this easily and I just don't know how to search for it. Any help appreciated....

Meet Fred, aka #PixelFred our mascot. He's been around since June 2018 but many people don't know about him.

The #1 thing that surprises me about having a is how self-motivated she is. I mean she SHOULD be content with her free room and board and hugs and toys and everything, but she never is.

Today she's practicing standing without any support. How did she know how to PRACTICE something? What even is her motivation for standing without support? What goes on in her noggin is a total wonder to me.

She totally did 15 seconds today, by the way. Her previous record was like 4 seconds. The #2 thing that impresses me is how much progress she can make and how much she changes just within a day. Super cool to be a part of.

An academic paper about social networks misspelled Mastodon, Pleroma and Pixelfed lol

It's too early to be certain, but we have suspicions our baby daughter may be 

Poorly documented git.sr.ht feature: if you push to a git repo that doesn't already exist, it's created for you automatically. I haven't used the web UI to create new git repos in... a year?

Made it to Thursday night! Why does the first week of every semester always feel like a month?

I swear i didn't arrange this on purpose. They line up to stare at me when they're hungry

I frequently need a command-line calculator to do quick calculations. I just realized that, years ago, I would use Unix mainstays like "bc" or "dc". I haven't used them in years, though, because there's a new command-line calculator that works better and is installed on almost all modern Unix systems: it's called "python".

Guix officially is my preferred GNU/Linux distribution.

Cool package manager. Great docs. Expressive Scheme API. Easy to write new packages. Super friendly community.

I wish more people used and contributed to Guix.

Getting back into to try and contain the exodus of Korean vocabulary leaving my head. I've been out of Korea for more than half a year now and don't speak in Korean except for the most basic things with my wife/daughter. I may not have time these days to practice it much, but I'd at least like to keep a little for when I do start getting more time.
