So many people follow me here, but I've never really written a proper . Time to change that!

Hey there, I'm Chris, but most friends call me 'muesli'. I'm a geek, a software developer, a maker, an opensource advocate and a tech enthusiast. I love programming and tinkering with things. I started almost three decades ago with Basic, and have learned & used Pascal, Assembly, C, C++, Java, PHP, JavaScript, Python, Rust, Go, and Lua (pretty much in that order) over all these years.

Made myself a little charm themed lamp that also acts as a monitoring system: build fails? Alarm!

The summer at 10 feels as long as a year at 20 and the five years between 35 and 40.

Printing with 0.25mm and 0.8mm nozzles feels equally absurd.

One gives you resin-like details, the other one lets you print functional parts and prototypes super quickly.

With Revo I'm now thinking about nozzle diameter just as much as I think about layer heights during slicing. A bit of a game changer indeed.

$ python image_from_text.py --text='a comfy chair that looks like an avocado' --mega --seed=10

I need this chair!!!

Swapping out my Prusa's hotend for an E3D Revo Six.

Excited about that upgrade, as it lets me swap nozzles super quickly.

Top notch instructions from E3D, as usual.

I have a sudden urge to replay the Bioshock series.

Rapture was a mesmerizing place.

Whatever has happened in the last two years, I've pretty much lost all faith in politics and respect for society in general. This is a sad feeling of solitude 😕

Humans are strange people. We have no idea how to achieve happiness, but we know in detail everything that makes us sad.

Does anyone know a generator that turns a Mastodon profile (including images, ideally) into a static site?

There are few things in life I hate as much as cooking. I'm hungry, the last thing I wanna do is watch food sitting on the stove for 30 minutes.

As software developers we use a diagnostic technique called "The 5 Ws" to analyze issues:

- Why did this happen?
- Why did the server crash at night?
- Why?!
- Why???
- WHYYYYY!!!

Ah, this time of year: fake wokeness month.

A small list of companies pretending to care, but ultimately just abusing symbols of a social movement. Feel free to add to this list in the comments.
