I am in on the ground-floor of a local baker who is kickstarting his own bakery business.
This is practically the best thing ever.

Linux Kernel Development is a good book so far.
_Lots_ about concurrency and synchronization.

The Linux kernel is pretty interesting; it is simultaneously implemented in one of the lowest-level languages in wide use today and also deals with very high level concepts.

This is pretty obvious, but it is a different thing to talk about it as an outside observer versus being walked through it and witnessing it yourself.

Sometimes the reader mode button isn't available in firefox. TIL prefixing the URL with about:reader?url= helps. Reader mode is also a nice workaround for some sites that have nasty full-screen GDPR popups that I don't want to accept.

"What's on your mind?"

Me, thinking: Death, legacy, how to live a good life, the pursuit of happiness, what do I want out of life, am I a good person, do I really understand love, am I wasting my time, what am I missing out on, will I ever feel grown up, what does success mean, what have I done with my life, can I survive on my own, would I want to, what if this is my last day, why can't I express myself adequately, does any of it matter, …

Me: "Not much. You?"

Congratulations @sir on being able to make that leap!

Here's to eventual cash-flow positivity and being able to continue doing this full time for as long as you desire!

Wow. Seeing @sir take that step to be funded solely for FL/OSS work is inspiring! I do hope they write about the mechanics ( highlights their announcement). Congrats!

I watched Bandersnatch.

It was fun and interesting. I feel like it's more successful as a game experience than a movie, but I think that's also mostly the point.

I would say watch it if you are interested in what it does. Ha ha. Not super helpful advice, I know.

If you like getting lost in thoughts, recursive thinking and postulating on the nature of reality, then this is probably up your alley.

I would butt in with "But a modern web browser and website will destroy a Pi with their heavy requirements" but you've already answered that with "what you should be doing" anyway. :-D

Admit it. Most of what you should be doing on a computer at any given moment could easily be done on a Raspberry Pi.

@ajroach42 I see what you did there. ;-) It looks cool!

@ajroach42 I thought you meant a CRPG or JRPG. I was intrigued. Then I found it's a tabletop RPG. AWESOME!

This is Jeremiah. Jeremiah wore safety goggles while angle grinding. Jeremiah still has his right eye. Be like Jeremiah.


Man, watching Youtube feels like watching TV used to; so many commercials!
Since all the Youtubers I watch are supported on Patreon anyway, why not just do Peertube? That would certainly be awesome for _me_. :-)

I suspect most Youtubers still rely on Youtube ad revenue in addition to Patreon support.

looking to completely disable the "clickpad" full depress events for , I've tried "ClickMethod" "none" but that doesn't do anything.

Any ideas?

@SpindleyQ Ha ha. It is so low on the priority list, but what the hell?
Sometimes you have to do something just for the pure joy and fascination of it. :-D

Oh man, just started following @SpindleyQ and now I'm struck by the strongest desire to code for an Atari ST again.

@Canageek @dosnostalgic LGR yes, but not the others.

I've been reading the Digital Antiquarian for a couple years now; have you? :-)

Thanks for the recommendations!

I started watching Modern Vintage Gamer on Youtube and boy oh boy do I desire to own a bunch of retro technology.

I almost bought a replica Altair 8800 a couple years ago...

One day I will start building my own computing/videogaming museum. One day.
