It is now possible to help my muesli addiction, or possibly let me afford healthier food.

Having an independent income source would let me work on more free software stuff, even things that don't look good on a CV. And also create more art, possibly involving headpats.
But it's not like I'm starving or anything, so no pressure if you wanna give to someone more in need instead. That someone could even be yourself. Heck, go do something nice for yourself anyways.

Hi!
This is @grainloom 's art alt! Or @grainloom is @csepp 's social alt! Idk!

To start things off, here is some fanart of I first made because I needed a b&w avatar and then turned into a kind of ars poetica thing. That thing they say about limitations leading to more creativity definitely turned out to be true for this.

does anyone know of any courses/training to teach about “green coding” best practices and teaching that mindset etc.?

@jonny This definitely bears repeating, identifying watermarks have been used for a long time to find the source of material, and is easier to use by the year.

Yellow dots from printers, intentional typos in documents, the metadata, and I'm sure I've seen people manage to embed visuals into movie files that immediately ID it without changing the image enough to notice.

I suppose one benefit of metadata watermarks is that they're more likely to be too lazy to use trickier techniques.

Also present in the metadata are NISO tags for document status indicating the "final published version" (VoR), and limits on what domains it should be present on. Elsevier scans for PDFs with this metadata, so good idea to strip it any time you're sharing a copy.

It's probably been shared a bunch already, but if you haven't seen it, this video essay by is IMHO *the* definitive guide to the / / craze. It's long but packed with information and is conveniently split into chapters, so don't be deterred.

By relaxing I mean trying to draw the same character multiple times while staying on model, so, it's not *that* relaxing.

Got a 5 on my exam so relaxing with Dan Olsen's latest video and drawing. Already watched it once but it's so damn good I need to hear it again.

Bring back infrared ports on stuff. Renormalize beaming little packets of data all over the place.

Imagine meeting your friend, beaming them the textfile zine you've been putting together, them beaming you a uxn rom they've been hacking on.

Direct, intentional, peer-to-peer sharing. No crowded spectrum, no tracking, just line-of-sight goodness.

Mycroft put up a 200 USD bounty for a new intro book. Thought it might be of interest to some folks here.
I haven't been an active 9fan in a while, but it's definitely a piece of tech that I think more people should play around and become familiar with.

At one point people talked on the nesdev forums about a serial bootloader that used the second controller port, and I don't think anyone actually put one into a game? I found code for an implementation at web.archive.org/web/2012040120 and made it so you can launch it by putting a code in at the title screen of Nova 1.

I also put put in a hex editor, also accessible via code, and put a bunch of useful routines in a fixed place, Commodore KERNAL style.

I doubt anyone will use any of this but it's neat

:boost_ok:​ hi, im looking for anyone who has something with an ARM CPU in it from 2004-2012 or so, as i want to know which devices all have Jazelle implementations (and what they implement), as part of my Jazelle reverse-engineering effort

these CPUs can be found in a lot of devices, ranging from embedded things with an ARM9 (eg. something with an FX3, or a TI Nspire), to smartphones or tables from the era, with a Cortex-A8/A9

the info i need is 1. the exact CPU model (eg. "ARM926EJ-S" or "dualcore Cortex-A9"), 2. the 'CPU ID' code (from CP15 0,c0,c0,0), 3. the contents of the JIDR register (cp14,7,c0,c0,0) and 4. the JTAG IDCODE (if possible) (please reply in DM, or if you have questions about how to retrieve these)

thanks!

TIL about lichess.org/ , one of the world's most popular chess servers, run entirely on free software by a nonprofit, ad-free, supported by donations with a budget of ~$420K/year according to lichess.org/costs

They've been around since 2010.

As awesome as this is to see, imagine how many free/open nonprofit alternatives to Big Tech platforms would exist if, down to the municipal level, we decided to support them with funding & infrastructure.

Today I had my first Dog Poo + Wheelchair experience, and so PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG OKAY.

It's not just people's shoes it might affect, when dog poo gets on wheelchair wheels it will probably end up on the disabled person's hands and sleeves too! PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG.

CITIZENS OF MERVEILLES. :moar:

I have listed objects I don't need anymore. Most are creative tools and hardware: computers, pis, sound cards, capture cards, microphone, soundboard.

Full list: thomasorus.com/giveaway.html

All of this is free for you, if you want them. :tealheart:

I will favorite people in dire financial situation due to the pandemic, and from minority groups that suffer from systemic inequalities. PLEASE be responsible and let those people ask first. DM me if needed. :tealheart:

Oh also re: nmtui. I don't know how they didn't notice this, but its layout is often just completely broken on the PinePhone screen. Since that is the device SXMO was built for, it's hard to believe no one noticed this.
So my guess is they went with it instead of nm-applet because of the usual VT100 fetishism.

SXMO with a proper GTK widget GUI would actually be my dream PinePhone shell.
