I finished setting up one of the least useful but still pretty cool computer setups I've ever built. I had a leftover desktop PC with no SSD or anything for it, so I set it up to run diskless. It boots Arch Linux using PXE and mounts its entire filesystem from my file server using NFS.
There are no traces of this whole setup physically inside the computer itself, so if you took it out of my house you couldn't see that anything weird like this had been done at all!
@ajroach42 there is a bit of a misconception about GNU Taler being associated with blockchain or being a cryptocurrrency when its aims seem to be more to provide an accountable, privacy-respecting and open standard for transaction processing so you are not beholden to any particular payment processor.
It's a shame the mindspace around digital currency is so dominated by blockchain BS because it would still be nice to have a decent way to transact amongst people and merchants and institutions like credit unions without a Paypal or Stripe or the like getting in the way...
at least until such time we've finally gotten around to fully automating gay space communism
Thanks for the redesign, guys. Real helpful.
(This is a button to call the traffic lights, an older and newer design of the same device. You have to press the top area to activate it, which has a big circle on the old version, and an inexplicable pyramid thing on the new version. Even though I had seen the old version a thousand times before, the new one *still* confused me and I pressed the wrong place at least once.)
Actually good web design:
Yle, the state broadcasting company of Finland, recently made this change to their website. Rather than scrolling endlessly anymore, the front page now simply ends with a "That's it! You're all caught up" message before long.
This change has actually stopped me wasting so much time reading news compared to before, because this is a very easy signal for me to simply switch back to some other task I was doing.
Everyone always characterizes Tom Nook as this evil capitalist top hat guy, but why? He loans you money without interest, no deadline, and without so much as reminding you to pay it back.
Lottie, on the other hand, is the true enemy of the people. She makes you work as an interior designer and pays you a tiny fraction of her business's profit to you, and on top of that, she pays you in scrip which can only be spent at the company store. I say give Tom Nook a break, and bring Lottie to justice!
