so I finallymade my bike fixed gear (couple weeks ago) after lots of learning and trial and error. had to get a chain, cut it and install it, remove the old chain, install the fixed gear, balance it right, set it right and change the tube~

but now I'm scared to ride it! I need to get cleared pedals, but waiting for LBS to get the parts

I've ridden once and I do like it, but not sure if it's better than free wheel? gonna try and get one that's the same size so I can swap easily

everybody trust-the-process until they draw an iso projection circle

fucking home server is wrecked still haven't been able to fix it, mostly because nix is broken in the most esoteric way
can't nixos-install because I use flakes and then when I change config to not flakes, it doesn't update grub....
help appreciated

Continuing the joke 

@nerdypepper
Ruby: everything is an object
C: everything is a memory address
sh: everything is a command
Perl: everything is an unreadable regex

i like languages where everything is a "thing":

- lisp: everything is a cons cell
- sql: everything is a table
- haskell: everything is a function
- rust: everything is a borrow-checker error

okay so just converting the text nodes into half <strong> tags seems to work okay! Going to see if I can tone down the boldness with some injected style, etc.

Installing an adblocker is the gateway drug into anti-consumerism, which is in turn the gateway drug into anti-capitalism.

Tell all your friends how to install adblockers.

tested out the portable pi setup with this solar powered battery pack. at current consumption (about 10 watts) it says i have over 40 hours of use left :) i can fully recharge the battery in about 2 days of good sunlight.
also, i am having fun playing with in during the battery test.

i've been using a GPS logger on my phone to track my biking trips. i got around to exporting and visualizing those GPX tracks today. hopefully this will evolve into a self-hosted strava clone.
