I would use a publicly hosted git solution but my problem comes from bandwidth considering I push to quite a few repos a day (LaTeX docs, notes, sites, etc).

I'll think this over further, I still have a few things on my plate before I can work on that.

I'm hoping later this week or sometime soon to retry setting up that Gitea instance and migrating any and all Git projects from GitLab, GitHub, etc and have it all in one place that I trust.

If I can get everything working reliably then I will allow registrations to it.

I've got two new pages planned for my blog as well as a rewrite of the homepage to link to more pages. I've also got some posts lined up, I'm just working on the drafts in an org doc.

Maybe in the near future I'll write an SSG that converts a single org file - or multiple - into a static site, that would be interesting.

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.

Thinking of moving some of the video content I've made over the years well as possible new videos over to Lbry and PeerTube.

Does anyone have a recommended or preferred PeerTube instance that they enjoy using? I'm registered to one already but it's not linked to some of the instances where I watch videos from?

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.

Ran into some issues with consuming/parsing the GPX files. I got it mostly working, however in larger files it craps out.
I'll spend some more time tomorrow finishing things up so I can ride some more and get more data to test.

I've almost got the parser for AAT's GPX files ready to use, needs more testing of course to cleanup the data coming in. I'm thinking the next commit will have all that.
After that it's on to allowing the output of data, and I may need to look into how that's commonly done in other programs to keep it familiar. I may end up redoing the flags all together in v0.4.0 to follow proper conventions.

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.

I spent my weekend going over code challenges and going on CodeWars.
I've noticed a significant improvement already and have started refactoring my projects.
I may even start on that Book app if I can get Crystal Amber working correctly on Arch.

Tried out DenoJS to play around with Vue and it was very pleasant to use.
I'm going to have to read more into it, but I think any personal JS projects will be using Deno simply due to the lack of dependencies and speed.


“Free users for sure we don’t want to give that [end-to-end encryption] because we also want to work together with FBI, with local law enforcement in case some people use Zoom for a bad purpose” - Eric Yuan, CEO.

While I'm on a roll today, I'll try and setup that IRC bouncer and upgrade my servers.

I think I realize now that org-mode + TeX is the best combo.

Writing in org is second nature at this point, but also being able to export as a pdf using a TeX template is pretty insane to me.

I think everyday I learn something new about org that makes me wonder why I used other tools.

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'm thinking about isolating myself tomorrow and doing some CodeWars to really practice what I know. I'm lacking motivation recently so anything to better practice my skills is good.

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 think I gave Crystal a bad rep. I keep coming back to it because it does what I need it to without stepping too much on my toes.

Bash + C + Crystal may be my focus considering that ecosystem would do everything I need on a Unix System.

Working on updating my crystal projects to the latest release as well as optimizing the some of the crap I had wrote previously.

My fetch program has been a neat first step into creating tools I want with what I like.
