introduction 

hello.

i am here now.

my name is rrix, i'm looking forward to meeting folks here. i am a creative coder living seattle washington. i care about data privacy, decentralized organization, malleable systems, tea, blue skies. i spent a short time becoming disillusioned in silicon valley, and i am realigning towards my own just goals now.

(I will be posting some hobbies and interests in unlisted replies)

well, later I'll do that. tonight I'm gonna just ... I dunno. dissociate? aye aye aye

today I built a tented stand for my ergodox with some knockoff lego technic parts I ordered. it folds up nicely into a fairly solid object, and is pretty sturdy. next I'm gonna make a little riser so that I can use my Planck (and soon Atreus!) over my laptop keyboard

you know that you can just "go online" and listen to music that other people wrote and produced? amazing!

I added photo uploads to my little inventory app called the last few days in ; i had to "finally" add a hard dependency on javascript, but only in the admin interface for POSTing my "move this object" request instead of trusting GET requests.

this constitutes an MVP, nearly, i just need to make the "quickly capture a bunch of stuff in one box" workflow working and i'll deploy it.

woops, found it, this is what i get for auto-generating org-mode files.

did it again 20 minutes later, lovely. i guess i have to actually debug this janky horeseshit infrastructure code.

i don't even know how I could have wedged uhhh org-indent, i closed a capture buffer and it wedged org-indent on all of my buffers...

timer errors are basically the only thing that reliably forces me to restart my desktop these days.... just completely spam me with an error i can't fix because the erring callbacks run forever and i cannot cancel them, great, good, thank you.

"here's 40gib of 128kbps prog rock and buttmetal rips you fucking dweeb!!!"

*nervous cracking nerd voice*
hey uhh guys, i was uhh hoping for uh some access to this data that uhh i generated using your applications.

*google throws me in a fucking locker and steals my data*

still trying to excercise my right of access to a single json file, i filled up my harddrive on accident trying to download all 98gib at once; one of the truncated tarballs has the file i want in the headers but not in the body, so it's downloading again.

95GiB of data in my takeout thing because it includes all the music i uploaded to the play music in 2013

Show thread

and this is why my goal is to build a vertically-integrated personal computing platform of my own+my community.

"Requests to retrieve playlist details (playlists.list) for a channel's watch history or watch later playlist will return an empty list after September 12, 2016. Requests to retrieve playlist items (playlistItems.list) in either of those playlists will also return an empty list after that time. This is true for the new values, HL and WL, as well as for any watch history or watch later playlist IDs that your API Client may have already stored."

just complete nonsense horse-shit on TOP of the explicit anti-open changes they made to the API itself, everything is just slightly rusty and rattling apart.

every single google product is this way now!

now i'm waiting on a huh huh Google Takeout export for my data to see if *this* includes the list of JSON objects I have been trying to get all morning.

Go read out of date API docs, click a link to a documentation page that redirects to the root of a github repository, spend two hours fighting their auth stack, search the repository and four others for help or examples, get some example code that fails, find a github issue that references an API being deprecated, click the link to get to the top of the revision list, find the change yourself in the list, click on the twitter account in the sidebar to complain, see its been deleted+squatted on.

today i tried to use a Google API to do something trivial and I regret it before lunch. As of 2016 it's impossible to use the youtube APIs to get your watch later or play history out for programmatic personal use.

i might do a devstream some time this week.
