Hello friends,

it seems as though my financial situation isn't working out great (supporting our disabled, weird family of four) and I need additional gainful employment! I have 20 years of experience in misc computer stuff including programming in many languages like Python, web stuff, SRE, sysadmin, email, embedded, you name it. I prefer something part time, but will consider full time if it's good. Feel free to IM for resume or to share potentials! THANKS!

Is it okay if I use ncurses.h to make a simple text editor? Or is it better if I just use VT100 escape sequences?

I want to build a contact form for my website, PHP is a pain in the ass to configure with NGINX and I don't really want to use JS because as far as I'm aware, you can't send emails using vanilla JS, what other suggestions do you have?

Wrote a very professional email, began with "Dear such and such" even ended it with "Regards", the whole thing.

Accidentally sent it 6 times.

Working on our slides for the upcoming talk for NIME 2022.

We'll talk about the creation of Orca, plain-text music formats, algorave, livecoding shows, and of course rant about the usual suspects. :cooldog:

NIME stands for: New Interfaces for Musical Expression

getting more experienced with #Linux doesn't mean you'll break shit less often, you just get slightly faster at fixing it again

Pepper&Carrot episode 37 production report: an important milestone today. The alpha version (still in French) was posted to proofreaders. Here is a photo of my setup over last month for drawing and inking all pages:

It's 9am and our batteries are topped up, and all our devices are charged. 🌱

After a week on only two 6 volt batteries, I'm starting to feel pretty confident that we'll be alright with half of our usual battery bank for the summer.

Nothing quite like morning coffee on the water.. ☕ ⛵

Calm technology. We need technological help to grow tempeh in places where the climate is not suitable for its growth. The idea of our fermenter is to mimic the Indonesian climate to produce plant-based protein food using local beans, to cooperate with nature and help it to help us. But the technology for our device doesn't need to be intrusive, connected to the internet, track our habits or consume more energy than it actually needs. It just needs to produce heat according to what the growth of the mycelium requires. Only a few components are needed. A few components that we can understand, repair and improve if necessary. A few components that reconcile open-source technology with citizens and our food production. We like to call it calm technology.

I was making a self-hosted microblogging platform in Java (because I've been using Java at work), then, I started reading about permacomputing and fell in love with it, so, fuck this project lol

Words fails me to express how much I hate Ghost.
