Paper really beats digital on everything for plein-air outside, imo:
✅ No battery issue.
✅ Super visibility.
✅ Real time high FPS gesture.
✅ Texture and no parralax.
✅ Mega cheap in comparison.
✅ Ecologically-friendlier.
✅ Lightweight in a backpack.
✅ No boot time or waiting time.
✅ Ends with a real art you can give (or sell).

❌ Doesn't have Undo
❌ No Selections, Filters, versionning, etc...
❌ Doesn't have hundred thousands color available
❌ It doesn't run Doom

This is Mars! #NASA Curiosity Rover met "Blackcraig Butte" on its way up to Mount Sharp inside Gale Crater.

I love when Mars shows off its clouds on the terminator!

@elb Maanga does predict pretty istopian futures... that and ridiculously oversized eyeballs.

python.natto.dev/ looks like a nifty hack. The node-based workflow system is fairly common, but it has some nice ideas, making it easy to spin out new panes for subsets of data (e.g., try interacting with the dataframe view)

Still wondering what my secret project is?


An #opensource bike computer.

After weeks of working behind the scenes, today the first functional prototype was tested on the road. Hello world!

Check out jazda.org if you want a prototype too.

🎨 A painting/Fediverse experimentation:

With percentages of Red, Green and Blue, you can obtain a precise RGB color definition.

So, please vote for one or more color channel and with the mix of all the votes, I'll challenge myself to paint a fantasy landscape, using the result as the dominant color.

(PS: I'm doing full time inking/penciling on episode 37 and a bit of colored art cool-down would be great! Also I need a bit of 'Fedifun' this week. Thanks for your votes and boosts! )

@elb What I'm saying is that I'm starting to think of migrating "management" (i.e., Automations, Triggers, etc...) away from Hass. Hass is fantastic on the integrations front, but YAML is a horrible way to specify management logic. What I've been dinking around with is a piece of software that connects to MQTT and makes it easy for me to add e.g., scala code for intent handling, generating homewide notifications, or synthesizing new sensors from existing data.

I started playing around with the other day, and it struck me just how easy it was to attach a development client to test out new ideas. I'd already implemented a comparable tool for HASS using its websockets API, but MQTT required just so much less boilerplate to make work. I'm thinking of slowly migrating my house logic off of hass and into something cleaner and MQTT-based.

Although -assistant is an incredibly powerful tool, it's also a monolith of a software package. Coupling a state bus, archival, data vis, and hardware compatibility layers makes for a brittle system that needs to be restarted on every little change. Using YAML as a configuration tool is also incredibly limiting.

useful resource: the person behind this site has been posting character sheets for various role-playing games since 1998. they're all form fillable and most are highly customizable by using PDF layers and a lot of them are for incredibly obscure role-playing games. what's really cool is even though they stopped posting new character sheets in 2011, in 2019 they started again.


University Apparatchik: We need these compliance boxes ticked before you can have the thing, because we have boxes, and boxes must be ticked.

Another tip: Every Mastodon account has RSS built in. Just add .rss to the end of the URL for your account, e.g. merveilles.town/@lrhodes.rss

That lets people follow your public posts from an RSS reader, but it's also useful if you wanted to use IFTTT to crosspost your public posts to another platform.

@brainblasted @zzz Unlikely to be the cause of your issue... but since you seem to be scraping the bottom of the barrel: TCP buffer capacity? With iter_content, it's possible you're creating backpressure that's affecting the server connection in some way?
