Can we take a moment to acknowledge one of the least appreciated #cyberdeck in pop culture?
Penny's computer book and video watch, from Inspector Gadget
"couch" not "count".
Also, Monday we sign a contract for the second round of siding (spending money... ew). No luck on the small claims court (stress related nightmares on that one), getting someone to inspect the roof.
Gutters are probably going to be next year. But of... everything, I want the siding done before I order gutters. One thing done. then another thing, and then keep following.
Well, first impressions of NixOS are positive. I think it will solve my problem with repeatable build for novels.
Also, Pleroma is a lot easier to set up than Misskey. Misskey had a webpack that needed a 4GB swap on my low end instance just to get through it. Nix plus Pleroma only needed the minimum and a tenth the time. Plus, I can use a Tusky fork to connect, which is a major plus.
I have so many one, two, four, eight, and sixteen year plans. :D
I really should just create another plan (e.g., Nextcloud task list) to stand up a basement data center. I really should figure out the media server thing first (going to set up a Ceph cluster) and then move into OpenStack which would lead into setting up Drone in a more reasonable manner.
This holiday season, if you're going to buy friends and family presents, consider skipping Amazon and supporting some of your friendly, independent fedi artists instead!
Grab a beautiful calendar from @sylvia_ritter , a sublime in drawing print from @lila_bliblu an absurdist cult membership from @onan or one of thousands of great pieces of art from tags like #fediart or #mastoart.
Artists (of all descriptions) please post links to where people can buy your stuff in a reply!
I try to pick up a new language or variant at least once every other year. Plus periodically test my processes and tools to see if they are valid, productive, and useful.
I suspect the rest of this year is doing a couple test instances of NixOS and seeing if it grows on me. So far, it seems promising but so did Gentoo (which eventually betrayed me in ways that still give me nightmares).
I write fantasy and code. A large repository of useless knowledge. I don't follow back without interaction.
