In about 2.5 hours, I'll be streaming Episode 150 of The Joy of Coding!

To celebrate the 150th episode, I'll be spicy-hacking. I'll be eating some extra hot wings and attempting to work some patches in through the heat. Let's see how it goes!

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created

Please boost.
Fediverse, I have a request.
If you know a woman that is:
-from Ethiopia, Sudan or South Sudan
-Tech savvy
-Has an interest in Digital Safety and Security

Can you have them reach out to me? (DM if you need an email addy instead) We’ve a Safe Sister Digital Safety Fellowship specifically for them, and applications are open until September 28 and I’d like to send them information.

Last week, I thought I wouldn't be able to stream this week. Turns out I was wrong!

This means that at 1PM ET today, The Joy of Coding Episode 149 will air! Come join me while I livehack on Firefox - it'll be a real hootenanny!

Tabling at damage.camp! I still can't tell you exactly about the game I've been making this year, but if you come by the Toronto Media Arts Center at 32 Lisgar in Toronto in the next six hours, I can just show you

Hey, would you happen to be in TORONTO? If you come by the Toronto Media Arts Centre at 32 Lisgar Street TOMORROW (FRIDAY) or SATURDAY between 10 AM and 7 PM, you can try out free the demo for the game I've been working on for @MermaidVR as part of the damage.camp/ event! It is cool

Unix will give you enough rope to shoot yourself in the foot. If you didn’t think rope would do that, you should have read the man page.

is it possible to filter the federated timeline to certain languages? I have them checked in the preferences and it seems to only filter the local timeline.

I rage-quit Twitter at the end of November in 2016. As someone who has worked in online communities for close to 20 years, I couldn’t stand being a member of a community where the people in charge cared so very little for their users. We worked very hard at Flickr to make sure that people were safe. Your company isn’t the government and you can delete any account at any time for any reason. If you create a community, it’s your jobs to ensure that it’s safe for all.
