tired: long analog audio cables
wired: active USB cable and a DAC
inspired: if somebody would just build the analog audio-to-Ethernet self-configuring ADC/DAC boxes I dreamed up years ago, especially now that microcontrollers could do it for cheap
also tired: me, too much so to do that shit myself
the internet is just amazing tbh
started playing around with core rope memory
initial tests using a piece of wire stuck across a 9v were promising, it coupled enough current to light an led, so i tried it with a little 555 square wave generator
it dimly lights the led but no where near enough to really be noticable and the drive transistor is getting super hot
not sure what the next step is... bigger drive transistor?
or i guess i could just wrap the whole core and see if that works
@[email protected] I think this post crashes Fedilab repeatedly when displayed in home timeline but not in thread view. Not 100% certain this is the right post, I had to tap quickly before the app crashed. https://pleroma.site/objects/3114ab2f-ae3d-4eaa-a8d4-964c782fbb30
@[email protected] finding some crash bugs in Fedilab and have installed from F-droid, is there a way to submit logs?
If you want to protect your followers' privacy, you can make your follower lists private:
1. Go to Settings
2. Go to Preferences
3. Tick the "Hide your network" box
4. Select "Save Changes"
You will still see your list of followers, but others won't.
(This also hides the list of who you follow.)
I see the police - and agencies like the FBI as some kind of animal like entity. It moves, it eats, it hunts. You can't openly fight against it (except through politics), but a lot of time it eats assholes and fraudsters. This is the thing: it has its own agenda. Sometimes it favors you, and sometimes not. Treat it like a force of nature.
Blindly classifying it as an enemy at all times is, IMO, terribly short sighted.
"This does not seem like a reasonable set of dependencies to me. In particular, using two interpreted languages, two databases, and a separate web server presumably acting as a frontend, all seems like overkill. I look forward to when the Mastodon devs are able to tame this complexity, and reduce the codebase to a something like single (ideally non-interpreted) language and a single database. Until then, I’ll pass.”
Full ACK. (/via https://lobste.rs/s/hyoser/you_should_not_ignore_mastodon_social)
So, I just published "Building software together with Git" on my #blog: https://eliotberriot.com/blog/2019/03/05/building-sotfware-together-with-git/ 🎉
It assumes little prior knowlegde from the reader, and attempts to explain the technical concepts in accessible ways.
Pleroma is now a Mastodon Sponsor
One of the biggest platforms sharing the space with Mastodon just ended up supporting it financially. https://wedistribute.org/2019/03/pleroma-is-now-a-mastodon-sponsor/
"Facebook has targeted politicians around the world – including the former UK chancellor, George Osborne – promising investments and incentives while seeking to pressure them into lobbying on Facebook’s behalf against data privacy legislation, an explosive new leak of internal Facebookdocuments has revealed."
