til someone made a sequel to blaster master in 2017
til someone made another sequel to that one in 2019
they're retro-styled and have so much of what made the original so good, they're not like blaster master 2 for the sega genesis
til they're both on steam for 7 bucks each
wait you should have read this toot in all caps hyperventilating
"you're not actually gonna hack on your kernel so having the source doesn't help you" is a common argument against copyleft and/or the gpl
i'm not gonna be authoring kernel drivers any time soon, and i don't even understand most of the kernel source code i read, but by having mere access to it i was able to get enough clues to tinker it into working
... i didn't really want to figure out how to backport the patch and recompile my kernel and/or modules
but by squinting at kernel source code i guessed my way through hex-editing the firmware from its windows driver to maybe fool it into working on my linux box
and it fricken worked
(idk if it's actually using bluetooth 5 specific features right now but it does at least "work" (pair, send audio, etc.))
i feel like some kind of wizard 😎
got some headphones that use "bluetooth 5" which is supposed to have better range and a low-energy mode
but the computer has only "bluetooth 4.x" hardware
so i bought a random bluetooth 5 usb dongle based on a review saying "works on my ubuntu" despite manufacturer explicitly stating no linux support
turns out that review was surely a fake
because kernel support was added only 2 months ago and won't be on my machine until linux 5.8 lands in debian repositories
a 70-line (postgre)sql query that includes aggregate functions, regular expressions with replacement, case statements, jsonb path selectors, arrays, timezones, and count()s with expressions, expeditiously, is apparently something that is within my abilities 😲 😎👍
i could have used subqueries too but i'm not sure yet if that would have made it harder to read
i never imagined a year ago i'd get to sharpen my sql this much this late in my career
i've been reminiscing all day about that time i hung out with several nerds for an out-of-town non-nerd event and surprise we all brought computing equipment, "just in case" ❤️
nerd 1: i didn't really have any good reason to pack my laptop for this trip but i did
nerd 2: i've got mine right here
me: mine's back in the airbnb
nerd 3: me too
nerd 4: same
make 'git init' produce repos with an initial branch named 'main' not 'master'
@pho4cexa That made me discover that the following works as root, too:
echo ref: refs/heads/main > /usr/share/git-core/templates/HEAD
hello from behind my OpenWRT-powered TP-Link AC1750 (Archer A7) wifi router!
finally installed the firmware and swapped out my old router
next to set up my funky network topology
feels good to get this task done but that sure took a while
looks like... woah, 5 weeks since the previous toot, to get around to this?
feels like those scifi stories of software people who for whatever reason have their process super deprioritized so a minute inside is a day in meatspace
dreamt again that i was trying to get home from some kind of conference in Denver but weird sinister dream shit keeps happening every time to hinder me, but this time was different because i got my phone out to toot "help I'm trapped in a recurring dream about being stuck in Denver" and woke up trying to get my infuriating dream phone to stop misspelling shit
so here is that dream toot i guess
ok back to sleep, i hope it's not Denver again
i... made this?
i fuckin made the shit outta this
i am so impressed with myself right now yall
this is going on my resume
homemade sourdough bread attempt #3 and it turned out _so_ well!
✅ good crust
✅ gentle sourdough flavor
✅ mochi texture on bottom
✅ wife wants me to make more!
but better than anything else:
✅ it's becoming less tedious to make! no longer 6 hours of constant attention, i'm building intuition, abandoned instructions and measuring tools
I make software.
AGPL3+ whenever I can.
I love my craft; I hate my industry.
