From tumblr: "I made a big poster full of historic Personal Computers from Japan, its available from my shop (linked below) should you want to pick up a print :)"


these "struggling toward sentience in a cyberpunk timeline" memes emerging from the failbook crowd are starting to get a lil dark

the dwarf tomatoes I started in the cold basement on waste server heat are shockingly productive. lots & lots of small tomatoes to the point i'm snipping off more buds as I don't think the plants can support them on artificial light.

they're very vigorous and apparently open pollinated?? I do note the tomato size & shape varies a bit from plant to plant, as compared to the uniformity of a hybrid variety. "red robin" it's called. will be learning to grow these indoors year round.

those dwarf tomatoes I started from seed on selfhost/buttcoin mining waste heat in a cold basement are doing pretty well

I can't believe how half-decent the sound I can get out of this $18 Chinesium bluetooth disco tent light is, if I EQ the ever-loving SHIT out of it

Study finds people want more than watchdogs for journalists

People who put greater emphasis on loyalty and authority tend to be more skeptical of the core values that journalists try to uphold, as opposed to those who give greater weight to fairness, the study found.

Majorities of Americans also believe that the media doesn’t care about them and tries to cover up its mistakes.


remember those special dwarf tomato seeds I incubated on selfhost (and yes crypto mining too) waste heat?

they're almost blooming already. i'm kind of surprised, the basement where they live under makeshift lighting is a pretty steady 62-64 degrees.

"when leaving the house" meme with various adult references 

selfhost server-warmed tomato seeds update 

I've planted 2 starts of the second variety. I make starter pots out of used yogurt cups by drilling with the pictured bit (not sure what it's called). makes a lot of microplastic but i'm indoors so I just sweep it up.

these will join the others on my shoebox warming rig. I discovered one side keeps the soil around 70F and the other 74F so I will need to rotate the seeds accordingly and also tape up some warm air leaks.

since people seem to be interested, here's my personal compute stack / self-hosted dev & webshit infrastructure. currently 5 of 8 cpu cores are kept busy with mining when idle.

poor photos, but this is legit cyberpunk lifestyle, crammed in a basement between a couch, an end table, and a stereo table.

currently warming seeds of special dwarf tomatoes bred for small containers, which really want warm soil for 2-3 weeks in order to sprout.

it's only gotta last til they're out of the soil.

I saw this scroll past elsewhere and was reminded of something @realcaseyrollins said about Kate Moss's look, she is a bit steely overall, but in this photograph I find her striking, a bit challenging, and beautiful in the sense I could look at her like this a thousand times and never tire of it, it's an example of an image I'd choose to frame and put somewhere in my house if I had a house :shrug_akko:
