Ex developer and application administrator, currently learning penetration testing on my own. I enjoy low & sustainable tech, minimal art, and care about decentralization and what the web once was.

Also used to be an illustrator / comic artist and still draw from time to time.

Glad to join this community and get inspired from all of you :)

I have to find more time to learn toki pona. I can feel the fresh, recently acquired knowledge slowly fading :(

Travel prepping today. We're going to Southern France to visit some places and enjoy the sea!

mi sona lili e toki pona. lipu li pona mute!

I've felt the sudden urge to set up a small forum for the Merveilles folks (or anyone interested in it) who'd like a more organized place than Mastodon to discuss and learn the language together. Disclaimer: I'm a total beginner.

Feel free to join and suggest anything (and to boost if you like the idea)

Log in to exercism after a long time feels kinda bad. Some mentors replied to my submissions and I never got back to them...

Learning a new language reminds me of how the Al Bhed language was progressively deciphered in FFX.

A few words pop out and are immediately understood, while many others are still gibberish.

I love this process.

Wow, many people here are speaking or willing to learn Toki Pona! At this rate we’ll end up with a Merveilles Toki Pona Club in no time :)

Struggling a bit while learning toki pona nouns and adjectives, until I realized I was already working on 17% of the entire set of words.

Totally believe this is learnable in a month.

One nice thing with Python is pex (Python EXecutable). Once installed, you can turn any project from pip into a standalone binary. Say you want sshuttle for instance:

pex sshuttle -c sshuttle -o sshuttle

Done. The only thing you need to run it is a python interpreter, everything else is self-contained.

Hope this little guy makes it. I didn't know that some roots had to be cut to propagate a pilea and the process was a bit messy.

I don't know why I'm growing an interest for clojure, but I do.

In the southeastern US, taro (Colocasia esculenta) is an invasive species which likes to grow in wetlands.

The entire plant is edible when properly prepared (thoroughly cook it or soak it overnight to remove excess oxalates).

Why not go out and gather some? Help your local ecology, get some free vegetables, and give the finger to commercial food production all at the same time!

So, upgrading Pop OS to 20.04 removed all my --user installed pip packages.

Cool. Cool cool cool.

Every day I think of how it would be impossible to convince people to build libraries if they didn't already exist

Shellcheck is such a blessing by the way. I rarely learned so much out of a linter.

It's never too late to learn about subshells right?

... right?
