Heading to Mont Tremblant (Quebec) and later this week, New York.
I wish I enjoyed travel more because I have an objectively privileged life in this regard but I really don't enjoy it. (Even worse: NY is by plane, so heavy carbon footprint and I'll spend the trip in mortal terror).
@selfsame shitpost aside, I need this. Especially useful to remind myself not to fall down rabbit holes.
- Don't try and get Windows 3.11 running on anything
- Don't install Haiku
- Don't try and build another 3D printer
- Don't romanticize CRT oscilloscopes: they sucked
I think this is pretty cool. Too fash-y? https://www.machine56.com/product/m56-stribogweste
@selfsame Ah. /This/ is why it was all worth it
So we have a better search now. It says the import finished. I am suspicious because it doesn't include @selfsame's latest toot using the phrase "what if" ...
@cpb what sucks about pinboard? (I use pinboard, but not religiously)
@kingcons Almost everything is built from a kit, except the Pico Voice and there's a Disting you can't see. The power supply on the far right of my bottom case is fully DIY to my own design. It's a rat's nest internally, but a laser cut panel hides that well
A great deal of soldering and some hardware debugging went into building the Hades synth kit: https://insom.github.io/journal/2018/01/01/
Which just makes me like using my modules even more, I think. The IKEA effect.
@astrid Lovely. Is this the Connections Museum?
@selfsame @eft also also I don't have Elasticsearch enabled on this instance so the search is even more basic. It's quite a big JVM instance to run for this feature and when it was added I polled the locals on TTW about if we wanted it enabled. I am willing to reconsider, if it would be more useful though!
I thought about replacing my QPsmtpd install (Perl) with a more modern Haraka (Node) and then I realised it wouldn't make anything any better and it would be a bunch of woe and pain, and at the end all I can say is "it's not in Perl" and "it's newer".
So, I think that this counts as personal growth.
And finally from this batch, some POV snow: https://www.flickr.com/photos/insomnike/49235171833/in/dateposted/
