The real pain though was I also moved from a hand rolled k8s cluster to using Google's new Autopilot GKE k8s cluster, and I ran into so many undocumented hard edges. Part of this caused me to have to rewrite my entire CD pipeline... which still isn't quite done.
I love slat flip and dot flip displays. https://hackaday.io/project/18541-dot-flippers is a fun look into a dot flip display
Learning that people suffering from the storm and blackout in Texas were using the guide in our book Recipes for Disaster to build a rocketstove with which to heat food and water, we've put the directions online here in their entirety:
"The guru is not exposed as a liar or a lech, a joker or a thief, but “only” a child laughing in the sun. The seeker’s mistake did not lay in identifying something special in this person, but in believing — hoping — that this specialness had something to do with knowing the truth. Instead, the numinous boils down to an ordinary state of radiant and childlike joy."
I realize I've been tooting for a while on Merveilles and never wrote an intro. so sorry for the delay... of 12 months or so?
I'm Nat, or icco. I've been building software since the early 2000s. I love building cli and web tools, and spend a lot of time #datahoarding. I try to do everything in the open, so all of my personal code in FOSS, and most of my thoughts are public on subdomains of https://natwelch.com.
When I'm not writing code, I like hiking, fly fishing, reading, writing, and listening to and making music.
Anyone interested in an NSynth Super?
I might be building one for a family member, and it would make sense to buy components for couple more to get up to MOQ on the PCB etc. EU shipping only.
I could probably provide them fully-assembled but also as some kinds of kits if anyone wants that. Let me know in DM or reply, RTs appreciated too! :)

Oh, dang… “Today’s open-world video games resemble gig economy platforms, with endless task lists to conquer”
https://www.tomshardware.com/news/lisperati1000-raspberry-pi-project is neat. I couldn't use it tho, would totally mess up my back at that angle.
