Pinned toot

I spent way too much time on desktop vanities today, but it was just too compelling.
Here is my very first bash script in action. It generates @regolith themes from the wallpaper using pywal.

Copyright must be abolished. The fact that anything created today will never enter the public domain within any of our livetimes proves that the system has failed. We have an obligation to exercise civil disobedience to protest the broken system. I will shed no tears for billionares caught up in the flack. They never shed a tear for the tens of thousands of people they screwed with expensive lawsuits, nor the billions they screwed out of their rightful inheritance of the collective works of humanity.

It's your obligation as a good citizen to pirate shit.

Found a rusty and bent pair of shears at the second hand shop.

After straightening them, I put the shears in vinegar to remove the worst rust. Then worked them with rotating steelwire brush on dremel to remove deep & fine rust, oiled them and finally sharpened them.

The stamp reads Würpel & Bronner, which according to [1] was founded 1865 in Germany and since 1910 no longer appears in the records, so that dates them roughly.

If you're feeling spicy, I wrote a small introduction on setting up a personal overlay.

Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design.

Finally worked up the nerve to post one of my more recent blog posts to HN

Classic Macintosh has an easily accessible fixed-point math library. Including from THINK Pascal. If you're thinking of doing 2D graphics or gameplay mechanics/physics/logic, you'll probably want to use it instead of floating point.

It bums me out that Mastodon doesn't have good keyboard navigation.

Say what you will about the new Twitter design, but their keyboard controls are a joy to use.

‪If all you see when you look at Lisp is parentheses then you’ve sorely missed the point.‬

@maxdeviant Yeah, those are all partially centralized. Fully decentralized is usually so inefficient it ends up becoming a sticking point (see: bitcoin)

But I like the model of "friends are all on a server somewhere, and servers can communicate in some way if they want". No one company or government or whatever is in control, but it's not massively inefficient, either.

Today I learned something new about my automatic movement mechanical watch.

I didn't wear it much yesterday cause I was out doing yardwork. When I woke up this morning it had completely stopped.

I meant to wind it, but I got caught up in things and forgot.

I just glanced down at my wrist and noticed it was working again!

So TIL my watch can restart itself from a complete stop completely from wrist motion 😄
