That had a prototype of a knitting machine extension for the famous original console. And it's a shame this has never reached production.

Friendly reminder: In a world where so many people are cruel for the sake of it, the most punk thing you can do is to be kind without expecting anything in return.

Using #ImageMagick #montage #identify and #convert commands to make a #gradient out of image thumbnails sorted by average #sRGB #grey level:

```
montage -tile ${COLUMNS}x${ROWS} -geometry ${TILEWIDTH}x${TILEHEIGHT}+0+0 $( identify -colorspace RGB -format "%[fx:mean] %[filename]\n" in-*.png | sort -nr | cut -d\ -f 2 ) out.png &&
convert tmp.png -colorspace RGB -geometry ${WIDTH}x${HEIGHT} -colorspace sRGB out.png
```

I didn't yet figure out how to get the #gamma-correct colour space conversion to happen inside the montage's own rescaling, so I render at natural size and #downscale with convert afterwards.

The last image is the good result, the other two are gamma-incorrect, thus they appear too dark on screen (and presumably print too).

Getting stuff done is good but have you considered napping under the shade of a tree?

time to start woodworking again, starting with this 12/4 slab of figured maple.

the Solarpunk movement desperately needs a breakthrough in music unequivocally called Solarpunk. What am I supposed to listen to when I turn on the photovoltaic sound system? Will it sound like synthesised natural soundscapes? or autotuned wolf howls? Or wind-powered horns?

I just checked on one of the MUDs I played in the 90s & the server is still up & running! torilmud.org
