Hey all,

2020 is just around the corner and during this holiday season there are a lot of folks right here on the fediverse that are struggling to keep up with day-to-day things.

If someone is making something you like (toots, artwork, music, whatever) and if you have the means please consider heading to someone's profile and see if they have a Patreon or a Liberapay account listed. Even something small every month can help.

Help a Fedi out.

I think I'm going to dive a little deeper in to C programming this upcoming week. Feeling the pull to learn more. I know that languages like Rust and C++ smooth out some of this but frankly I feel like I've been running away from digging deeper into coding, and C feels like the best place to confront those fears.

yelp, f-bomb 

Love that Django Simple Captcha is essentially wet paper for a certain type of bot.

(Yes, I know, CAPTCHAs are evil, but I need at least one thing in there to slow down the humans)

Being at a radio station in the 1990s meant getting to pick up some bands I might not have otherwise found / listened to.

D.A.M.: Human Wreckage

Bandcamp Doesn't have the full album, but the track that's there should give you a taste of this band:

Wishing that the new NIN "Ghosts" albums were released under a Creative Commons license, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

The downside of not booting my Windows VM for a while is that it has to do all of the updates at once.

The upside of not booting my Windows 10 VM in a while is pretty self-apparent.

Whisper those words that make the FOSS folks swoon:

"Status: Confirmed => Won't Fix"

covid-19, conferences, o'reilly 

Sometimes I forget that TIC80 has a perfectly serviceable sprite editor and those sprites can be exported as a .gif file.
