that irrational thing where you avoid reading your most important e-mail because then it would get marked as read and might then scroll away into the memory pit where you won't be reminded that it exists anymore

q.: what's the difference between the mind and body after digital encoding for transhuman ascendance into the matryoshka brain?

a.: one's a block of code...


Using data from Kepler and TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite), scientists have confirmed the existence of KOI-5Ab, an exoplanet that orbits a THREE-STAR SYSTEM. DUDE!!!!

senpai rejects my requests to overhaul and rewrite all this ugly code, blowing out all the deadlines in the process, with the idiom "when in rome do as the romans do"

how fucking shitty must rome be

i'm sure never going there

ok this is Extremely Cool. m455.casa/posts/2021/connectin

i have a half dozen twitch channels i care about who broadcast at random times. so i put their chats in irc, and maybe i will notice when they start doing stuff! i'm excited!

death of family member 

what do i say to comfort a dear, kind friend who is grieving the recent loss of their last living parent?

i don't have a good relationship with my parents, i've cauterized any negative feelings about that, and as far as i know mine are both still alive so it's hard to empathize in a genuine way

linux, hardware shuffling adventures 

along the way i learned how to build a customized debian "live install" image

made one with the latest 5.10.0 kernel from unstable, non-free firmware so it can do wifi on the macbook, and the rest of the software from testing

wrote that to a usb stick (iso hybrid ftw) and used it to get linux root on external thunderbolt 3 enclosure on macbook14,2 working

astounded by how well the build tools and configuration worked for this purpose

linux, hardware shuffling adventures 

victory!! 🎉

i can now

1. yank the m.2 nvme ssd with my root partition out of my desktop box

2. chock it into my external thunderbolt 3 enclosure

3. plug that into my employer-issued mid-2017 macbook pro

4. boot it and

5. pick up right where i left off

love to see the grub2 menu appear right after the apple startup bong

I like the word queue because it looks like the u's and e's are patiently lined up

with light, red + green = yellow

green light is about 525nm
yellow light is about 590nm
red light is about 650nm

but adding two waves doesn't average them. sin(650x) + sin(525x) != sin(590x) no matter how you offset them

i know lcd and crt monitors work by using tiny rgb color components

til those colors never actually mix to become "yellow light." the light from a yellow LED is _totally different_ than the "same" yellow light made by "mixing" red and green!


We closed the gap between Stage0 and #GNU Mes: the Full Source Bootstrap is near!

The package graph is now rooted in hex0, a #357-byte binary & ASCII-equivalent github.com/oriansj/bootstrap-s

Make your distro #bootstrappable!

put up my 2020 personal projects page. Games, a month of music, some creative tools, and a shitload of ceramics. check it out!


we heard "the outer wilds" had a greg egan flavor so we picked it up and it does not disappoint. highly recommended. $15 on steam until jan 5.


i only chuckled at first, but then it stuck in my brain for nine solid months, and finally i can say for sure:

this right here is for me the definitive toot of 2020
