@neauoire is there a way to step individual instructions in uxnemu? Maybe I'm missing something. https://llllllll.co/t/uxn-virtual-computer/46103/209?u=winduptoy
👨🌾 We've had to conclude our farming season earlier than expected, but @tickfoot and I assembled all of our data, observations, and conclusions for your perusal.

I've been working over the summer to document everything I've been able to pull off with Ledger to run a business and survive the US tax system. Basically picking up where the Ledger manual left off. It's completely free and open, uses only plaintext files.
I still need a trained accountant to fill out the damn forms for me, but I can at least provide all the right numbers with minimal effort!
I have this problem of opening a backlog of hundreds of tabs of all of the great links I come across (especially on Merveilles) that I don't have time to read right now but I want to come back to.
This Firefox extension is doing a good job of keeping me at 10 tabs max and focused on the day's task. I either read it today, or the other things I'm doing are more important. The backlog is a mental drag.
Anybody know of any open source remote desktop software that allows one to easily help non-technical friends and family? Everybody's on Linux.
Traversing NAT is the major problem, so I'm happy to run my own relay server.
Just can't find any open source stuff that will work that way. I can't explain how to forward ports to my mom; she needs a non-technical way to invite me to help.
(TeamViewer, AnyDesk, etc. are proprietary clients with proprietary servers, so I don't trust the privacy there).
Welp, a few days after I posted this, the battery has swelled and the phone won't stay together anymore... 😢

environmental impact of container tech
I haven't seen anyone seriously study the environmental impact of continuous integration and the redundant steps of containerised workflows. like, it feels pretty likely that it's at least a nontrivial impact.
the standard in tech nowadays is to download and build everything from scratch when you make a change, such that even a small non-code change can result in upwards of an hour of computing work.
like, for example, at work we use Circle CI, and the standard plugin (Circle calls them Orbs) for Node.js will manually download and extract a copy of Node every single time a container is launched. this makes them all prone to supply-side attacks, requires huge infra on the servers that host the Node builds that also cannot go down without impacting code changes made by loads of people, but is extremely wasteful and probably has a measurable carbon footprint.
I personally don't have the ability at my current job to properly examine and fix this waste, but I hope that at least someone in tech seriously takes a look and figures out a way to at least improve things. at minimum, I feel like open-source projects not bound by deadlines and profit margins should try and reduce waste in their CI pipelines.
"Smaller farmers warn that a country without local farmers can create problems in the food supply chain. If one company is providing all the milk or cheese to an entire region, what happens when that plant gets contaminated or a storm isolates it from the rest of the country? 'It’s an incredibly fragile supply chain, and when it fails, it fails completely,'"
Treading lightly, and always trying to tread lighter.
