Pinned toot

Hey friendos! Ottawa Processing Day 2019 is over, which means my talk is done, which means I can experience joy again instead of just anxiety about giving my talk.

@tildetown got called out heavily, and especially @curio (for botany).

Please find attached this image of the Tilde Town Time Service that ran back in November 2017.

It's really more of an artists rendition - as it was created post-facto - but I actually built a working speaker amplifier on breadboard for authenticity reasons.

That was the UPS going in, Statuscake reckons 9 minutes of down time or, as we say in industry: one nine.

Cut off "to install a new circuit" and not for any financial reasons; to be clear.

Do apps show admin announcements? I don't see my latest one on pinafore.social -- anyway possible ttw downtime while I install a new UPS _or_ definite ttw downtime on Thursday when my power is cut off. Whichever happens first! I hope you're well, downtime is punk af, ~insom

Same, on a 1970's Tektronix scope. If anything the image is -more- stable on this one, although in person it wobbles like there is some stray capacitance somewhere.

Used my Raspberry Pi Pico to make a 256x256 raster display that works with the XY mode of an analog scope. One of those things I knew how to do in theory but that was a few pleasant hours of wiring and debugging to make work for real.

The version with a Z output (for intensity) refreshes at 100Hz.

Yesterday, I mentioned that someone was in Pittsburgh and then I wasn't sure if it _was_ Pittsburgh and ended up typing "where do people who say yinz come from" in a search.

Today I broke ttw by setting the DNS to go back to its old server while I move the DNS records to DigitalOcean.

I am done running my own BIND, and I am too stuck in my ways to learn something other than BIND.

That feeling when you're idly playing with a throwing knife while doing something else and then you drop it and you have a moment of terror that you're going to cut yourself and it was all avoidable because you could literally just play with anything else on your desk which isn't sharp but then it glances off the side of something and you're okay so the cycle repeats.

Seeing someone read a book you love is seeing a book recommend a person.

So wild to think that Smalltalk expected you to ship the whole runtime image environment to users. How impractical!

Anyway, if anyone needs me I'll be downloading an complete tarred up Linux machine from Docker Hub so that I can run a WordPress Blog.

played in live from a novation circuit so dawless i guess?
