@solidsanek Oooh, fancy over here, using a whole slice to make pizza stock instead of just the pizza bones like the rest of us

@ky0ko the Arduino Mega has the pins to support an external RAM, but that's definitely a project 😂

@variance Some programmers don't have pervasive, ever-present anxiety, and it shows.

I know I must be losing it when I start thinking, "I know, I'll write my own package manager!"

Fun fact: The average temperature in low-earth orbit is about 20 degrees C.

Sure, it's very hot in the sun, and very cold in the shade, but if you can average that out, it's a nice comfortable temperature!

The no air thing is still a problem tho.

I don't use my desktop for a ton of typing, so I've got a cheap rubber dome keyboard hooked up to it.

And now that I'm working from home, jeez is this thing bad! I honestly prefer my thinkpad keyboard.

Time to start working on that ergodox clone 🤷

Last night I hyperfixed my way into learning how rust, llvm, gcc, and c implement atomics. Guess I might as well get a blog post out of it?

COVID Posting 

This is me subtooting the entire embedded rust community

Found some really old maps of town online today, and found out that the house I'm living in now was built in 1886, and had two additions put on by 1892 (reaching it's current size), and that within two blocks of here, there were a grocery, a slaughterhouse, a school, a large brewery/beer garden, and a wool mill.

This place was a lot more livable 130 years ago than today 😟

Doing a praxis by calling it a "work slowdown" when I experience intense pandemic anxiety that prevents me from being as productive as my boss would like

I think the WFHers are victims of some very successful manipulation of current events. Oh, here, we'll just make your job like 1/3 easier because we could have donethat anyway, and by the way everyone else around you is losing their job. Be a good worker bee for me because you are now atomized, comfortable, and /very/ replaceable.
Which is, folks, exactly why you should SFH (Strike From Home).

y'all ever just face into the shower, letting the water stream over your face and kick in that mammalian dive reflex, and just... curse the folly of sapience and recall a time when we were wise enough just stay in the primordial soup
