I'm debating whether or not to play around with HackLang by converting some old php projects with. It looks very interesting and I'm curious to see how usable it would be in a production environment.
I'm excited to see that Crystal Lang is going into pre-release soon. v1 will be here before people know it, hopefully that means more adoption and more shards from the community.
My main goal would be for this to work with stdout like `$ cycling -o | plot ...` so I can export to GnuPlot. From there I can turn that data into images or whatever else I may want.
Either way, I'm building the app as an easy way to log/track my cycling data and learn more about Crystal Lang.
Finally got a good enough working version of my Cycling Data program for the terminal.
Next steps are to be able to import data from AAT, output to stdout for use with things like GnuPlot, and make everything more modular for future updates. It works rn on the basics I needed for consuming the data so I figured I'd share the progress.

Good question to ask here, are there any recommended sites to practice the Japanese kana? I'm a bit rusty I'm realizing. I've been practicing speaking and listening but never really reading comprehension.
Most of my Japanese books are lost in storage, and my ebooks are assuming you know the kana by heart.
I spent this afternoon reading about 2G/3G phones in the US and how they'll be outdated as late as December of this year.
I'm wondering now what sort of phone can people that are energy/privacy/bloat consistence get?
I was going to use an old nokia phone, but that won't work with my carrier according to online.
I'm compiling a list of different hosting/git/static-site providers to put on my wiki for others to use:
Please let me know if something should be added or removed.

Zoom acquired Keybase today.
Keybase helped me to identify a trend in the software industry: using a pretty UI to cover up the disruption of an open ecosystem with a closed, centralized replacement. Keybase seemed cool on the face of it - making encryption easier is a laudible goal, and PGP certainly could use the improvement. But, thanks to Keybase, now I ask different questions upfront.
Beware the Keybase formula:
1. Integrates with an existing, open ecosystem
2. May have open-source clients, but server is closed source and does not federate
3. Pretty UI and good marketing
4. VC funded
Uploaded the tileset for the game I'm working on to Itch.io. I'll be uploading more as I create more assets to use.
I want to make the assets I create free to use for others to build upon.
End up making a bash script to read some mastodon toots offline. I made it for myself in an effort of having more ways to access content offline. It's nothing special, just trying to create more lightweight and offline focused tools for use with minimal or older systems systems (much like my arch thinkpad setup with spotty wifi)
