You know, I just realized something.

The Matrix accomplished what Johnny couldn't: uploading data to your brain effectively and without side effects.

It's officially fall. The central heat is on in the house.

Working more on my replica Hackers pager. Did two coats of yellow paint, and a fit test for the decal on standard white paper. Fits so well I don't think I need to make any modifications.

Will do a third coat of yellow on some of the body and print the decal on waterslide paper in the next few days!

Anybody in Boston area want a #job?

We have several openings but I'm mostly hoping to find a #DevOps person here.

It will probably be unlike any DevOps role you've ever seen,
as we have a healthy mix of physical & cloud servers, Windows & Linux, Embedded C to JavaScript, ARM Cortex to extreme gameing rigs. Unfortunately this means you can't be remote :(

We make robots that go inside people and fix them which is #cybre AF and probably less evil than your average tech company.

DM for deets!

@luigithirty @djsundog microcode bullshit can do a lot:

* IBM replaced ucode on 68k to make it into a 370 CPU
* Xerox made the Alto's CPU do not just DG Nova emulation, but run the video HW too (90s version: MediaGX)
* If you believe the rumours, K8-K10 are suspiciously similar to Alpha internally
* Some other 90s x86 codes might also be literally PPC or MIPS designs with x86 decoders in front

There's a new fediplay version!

New features, thanks to Jenkyrados and bbonf on GitHub:

- You can listen to one or more people instead of absolutely everyone! Just specify their handles on the command-line.

- You can start fediplay after the last toot, and it'll look back in your timeline and play it now!

Update your fediplay to 2.2 today! github.com/zigg/fediplay

Just FYI, Mastodon v2.6.0 web client adds a nice feature that makes having inline RSS feeds (via something like my RSS-to-ActivityPub converter, bots.tinysubversions.com/conve ) much more convenient. The feature adds a "read more" to any post that is taller than a certain number of pixels, so now my "podcasts" list renders in a way that makes more sense. ("Read more" opens up a detail dialogue where you can read the full post in-client.)

I kid you not, this was in a recent software release notes:

"When copying to an external drive, <the program> now verifies that there is enough space on the destination before attempting to copy."
