Chīsai is aimed at people who need a free solution to have their own small space on the internet without falling into the CMS install and maintenance craziness.

It answers three very important things for me when it comes to websites:

1. It should be easy to modify by someone else
2. It should be durable and long lasting
3. Each person should own the code of its website

That's why, despite not liking centralization, it uses Github. It's a first step into OWNING the code + durable hosting.

Creo que acabo de ver cómo movían a un detenido de un coche normal con policías de paisano a una furgona de la Policía Local.

@xiroux And it makes sense that it would be carried over to "microblogging"

@xiroux Ooh, mhmm I'm not sure when I first saw that.. Livejournal did that too back then.

@xiroux The first time I noticed that was on early blogs.

I always wonder about the convention of timestamps being synonym of permalinks in social media UIs. When did that start?

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.

hey gang i booted into linux and paired my bluetooth headset right away and it sounded good and after i fainted from shock and got back up it was still working

programming languages should allow operator overloading, but, in order to overload an operator you need to have a license

I spent parts of January working on a new kind of search engine. Instead of indexing the unfathomable internet, it focuses on enabling search for neighbourhoods of related websites—webrings, or other kinds of topically similar sites.

The search engine is called Lieu.
Try it out:

Ha llegado el día más triste: he dicho "librería" cuando quería decir "biblioteca". El inglés es un virus.

I'm having one of those "Internet is AMAZING" moments. I did not know how to solve this problem with my keyboard, and some stranger in Discord guided me through what I needed to do, and then I come here and you help me decide where to buy the parts I need. And <3

Spain-based fediversians, where would you buy an Arduino Pro Micro (or compatible)? I'd like to have it rather sooner than later.

After a new desoldering pump, I was able to desolder the micro 💪 I lost most of the through-hole pads, so I'll need to buy a new one.

And today, while trying to desolder the Arduino, I melted my solder sucker 😭

I soldered all the components of my Redox keyboard this weekend. I was *very* proud of my soldering skills. Until I found out that I had soldered the Arduino upside down! Each part of the keyboard has the exact same PCB, simply flipped over, so the Arduino in each part needs to be soldered accordingly. And I soldered both facing up...
