We were granted almost all of the #DMCA exemptions we applied for last year! Read more about how you can now install alternate firmware (like OpenWrt) on your routers and freely investigate your own devices for #FOSS license compliance. sfconservancy.org/news/2021/oc

#Sqlite is definitely one of the under-sung heroes of software. If you make a program that needs a tiny to medium DB, Sqlite is probably a good fit.

An artist:

1. bought an Andy Warhol drawing for $20,000.
2. made 999 high-quality forgeries.
3. shuffled them.
4. sold each of the 1000 drawings for $250.

You might get the original $20,000 Warhol, but you’ll never know. This hurts my brain and I'm loving it!

It's a reasonable price for common art. No lottery. Nobody is ripped off. The artist profits hugely, yet gives away a unique item far below market value, but its receiver won't know.

It challenges our value system in very Warhol-way.

#codingfont says my winner font is Fira Code! Have used it extensively for years, switched a couple of years ago, maybe I should revisit.

Uploaded my first "trace" to , to be converted into a road later (but it looks like this is not easy on mobile?).

Recorded with which I continue to be impressed with.

I don't know. Maybe it's time to make this public.

If you are trying to learn audio programming and DSP from scratch (like, *really* from scratch), these notes might be the place to start:

mu.krj.st/

They were lecture notes for a student-led 1-credit audio programming course that I taught in the spring this year, but it's now a course for everyone. Some sections are still in revision, but the main contents are mostly complete.

It's probably more low level and UNIX-centric than most of the audio programming tutorials you can find, so don't expect to learn how to make an audio plugin using JUCE or how to make fancy GUIs etc. But maybe this can be a good thing.

caveats:
1. you need to know basic C and UNIX shell utilities
2. it contains math, but at most calculus level

"Onebit" colouring scheme.

In a museum, I often find myself wondering things like: "this reminds me of something I've seen before, would that be the same artist?".

It'd be neat to have a mobile note-taking utility specifically geared towards art, easily entering and visualizing/browsing things like
* date
* artist (wikidata?)
* location/venue (wikidata?)
* picture
* text note
* stars rating

Does such a thing exist? Or something close? If not, what platform would make most sense for such a thing, you think?

Very satisfying when we fix something in two days that we originally expected to take weeks.

Of course it also sometimes happens that finishing something you expected to take days needs weeks... planning software is hard (but that's not an excuse not to try and get better at it - within reason)

Today at $DAYJOB I got to analyse why a client would throw an error when talking to our own HTTP/2 server stack.

Turned out it was a bug in go (already fixed upstream but not in the version this client was compiled with), but understanding it helped us work around it server-side.

Things were complicated somewhat by the fact that this is all over HTTPS - github.com/VerSprite/alpnpass was a great help so I could inspect the frames in !

Much enjoyed this!

Hey fedi!

The young I'm volunteering for, @EICAS , is looking to digitize the catalog of its small library (just the metadata for now, though making contents available eventually would be cool too - as far as copyright allows :) ).

Any recommendations on what software to use (preferably web-based and FLOSS)?

Or open data collectives to make sure we're part of? I already found and

People in or from poor countries: “For better or for worse, Facebook has maneuvered itself and WhatsApp into being the only affordable international means of communication for us—so when FB went down, even just for a few hours, it had the potential to become a major problem for our communities.”

So there is a 'docker cp' to easily copy files between the docker host and a container, but there is no 'docker ls' to list them?

(sure, 'docker exec' will often work, but sometimes there is no 'ls' or shell in an easy to predict place. the files may not be in a volume, and 'docker export' exports *all* the filesystem which seems excessive)

Trying out a new shell, nushell.sh/book/

Basically built around variants of the unix utilities, but this time not working with raw text but aware of lists/tables.

Of course not a new idea, but it might be hitting the sweet spot where it provides benefits without going overboard into "a programming language as a shell" territory. Let's see.

nushell.sh/book/coming_from_ba for a "rosetta stone" overview of how to perform common operations.
