Pinned toot

I'm a web developer by trade. I tinker with and other electronics. I've been known to draw, paint, sew, cook, bake and take photographs. I'm currently trying to understand how modular synths work.

If you want to do it, here ya go:

echo -e "🄷 🄴 🄻 🄿 🄴 🅁 🅂"
echo -e "${COLOR}term${NC} description"

Made a little bash script that just echos out some CLI commands I need to do semi-frequently. Aliased it to "h" and now I've got my own little cheat sheet I can pull up when I forget stuff. Why didn't I do this sooner?

I guess there’s no English language music-centric instances yet?

Re-worked the aesthetics of my site based on a book design I ran into a few years ago during a trip to Montreal.
Many, many more things to do, but it's going somewhere.

Last year, we spent 51 days at sea during the passage from Japan to Canada, it was the hardest thing we had ever done. We kept a physical logbook of daily happenings onboard. This is that logbook, revised, and with a ton of extra notes.

I thought I had hit a major roadblock in getting Manjaro on this SBC, but it turns out the clock on the hardware was set to 2008, updating that enabled the system to access the internet properly, and do it's install and updates. 👍🏼
Adding a one-liner to the i3 config optimized the display resolution. I'm off to the races. I need to log this info for future reference.

Elementary OS was nice, but a bit too glossy for my tastes. Installing Manjaro with i3 on my SBC “desktop computer” to give that a go.

I'm getting a lot of request to expand on why I'm building a VM, so here are some rough thoughts on the topic.

The goal of the project is to create a portable virtual machine capable of hosting various tools and games. Its design should have, at most, the complexity of the 6502, and its assembly language be both human-readable, and allow for the creation of mouse and keyboard driven applications. The distribution of Uxn projects should be akin to downloading a rom for a console emulator.

Happy :tealheart: day to fedi friends and Merveilles Town. Thx for sharing, informing, and inspiring.

Found a neighbor to donate my mid-2010 Linux formatted iMac to. Quite a liberating feeling to have it gone without trashing.

Interview on Esoteric Codes, in which we answer some questions about aesthetics and our philosophy of development, and of life, I guess.

“Fully open, modular system for environmental sensing.”
I’d be inclined to DIY for my own purposes, but I’m glad this exists as an option.

where most wolves are obligate carnivores, the maned wolf is an omnivore and tends to eat a large amount of fruit. there is one kind of fruit they particularly favor, solanum lycocarpum or "wolf's apple", which ends up forming over 50% of the wolfs diet

it's also called that because basically nothing else likes to eat this apple, so the maned wolves feel like the reason it sticks around

I'm going to look for a local person to donate my old imac. I've had good luck putting Elementary OS and Ubuntu studio on it.
My question is - if I'm wiping it, what OS should I reset it to?

Still deep in the organization of my workspace task. About 80% done and it’s starting to feel amazing. I’m finding that as my interests diversify and my brain ages, I’m really benefiting from labeling all the things.
