Is there anyone in my network using an RPi3 or RPi4 as their daily-driver?

The bearings in my X220 fan are complaining loudly and I think it's going to be a while before I can find a replacement. I'm considering switching to using an RPi4 (8 GB) until then.

Most of my work is in the terminal and browser (no audio / video editing) so I think I might be able to make it work.

Thoughts from those with appropriate experience?

i'm doing some audioreactive stuff mixing the hand drawn and the procedural lately

Even worse, when the app login failed, all I got was an 'Uncaught node js exception error' with a bunch of garbled debug output. There was zero clarity as to what the cause of the error was. Baddd.

"But how could something like that happen?"

The application did not have push-notifications or an 'export data' feature.

Only when they announced the upcoming sun-setting of the app did they release a new version with an export feature.

I have been using this tool successfully since 2017. I had no reason to suspect it would go anywhere. I also don't frequently visit the SpiderOak website, nor do I follow them on Twitter (I don't even have an account). I was taken completely by surprise.

Had a tech nightmare this week when I couldn't login to my (cloud-based) password manager (Encryptr). It turned out that the service had been discontinued and they shut down the servers, meaning I couldn't access any of my passwords.


Thankfully there was quite a bit of uproar and the servers are back on this weekend for users to export their data.

I could have lost 200+ passwords for my entire (digital) life. I should have known better. We all make mistakes, please learn from mine!

梅干しのおにぎり 🍙

First time making onigiri!

They're not the prettiest onigiri but I guess you've gotta start somewhere. Kinda ended up going pyramidal rather than triangular for improvement.

Also: salty! Delicious but salty! Went perfectly with a cup of green tea.

Beautiful that these random graveyards become areas of great biodiversity just by their nature of being undisturbed areas of reflection or solitude. Some even provide conditions for endangered plant species to thrive. Lovely to think of these quiet places dedicated to past lives blooming with wonderful and rare new ones.

Never send a poorly-documented web scraping library to do Regex's job.

I wonder if there's a word to describe the act of timing one's movements in synchronisation with aspects of the ambient soundscape?

Just came across a great resource for Japanese language learners in the UK.

There's a link to a terrific Excel spreadsheet listing all the establishments teaching Japanese in the United Kingdom, including details such as region, website, degrees etc.


do you ever make onigiri? if so, i'm curious to hear your favourite vegan fillings.

The Mycology Reading group is meeting on Saturday (full moon).

We'll be discussing a paper exploring the cultivation of oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus) on tea waste.

It's a quick-read and offers some great insight into constructing small-scale experiments to test substrate mixes and measure their yields.

I hope to see some of you there!

Sci-Hub: Elsevier and Springer Nature Obtain UK ISP Blocking Order — TorrentFreak

Major UK ISP TalkTalk is reporting that in response to an order from a court in the UK, it is now required to block subscriber access to Sci-Hub. The injunction is reportedly the result of an application by academic publishers Elsevier and Springer Nature, who have teamed up in other regions to block access to 'The Pirate Bay of Science'.
