only two days late, here's my #nixwrt nugget for the week https://ww.telent.net/2018/6/21/i_will_try_to_fix_you
mind you, here I am subtooting about it :-(
Just deleted an unsolicited "have you tried nixos? it makes cross-compiling much tidier" toot unsent, feels a little too much like being That Guy
þ in my side (I should have known β)
Old computer books by Usborne https://usborne.com/browse-books/features/computer-and-coding-books/
Including this *adorable* old "Machine Code for Beginners" book https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bxv0SsvibDMTcHNXalEtYkVtU00/view
because "ei8ht" looks dumb, is my guess
https://discourse.nixos.org/t/new-project-mobile-nixos/342 #nixos on phones: really looking forward to trying this if I can find my old Galaxy Nexus (I think it's probably under a sofa somewhere)
ICYWW: this week's nixwrt update will be tomorrow not today as I'm on a deadline right now
Apparently AHB is a variant of some bus used on ARM platforms so I wouldn't have expected to find it in this extremely cheap low-spec MIPS device. But nothing surprises me any more
Your unsolicited reminder that World In Motion was closer to 1966 than the present day.
Also that "thirty years of hurt" is now 52
at some point I should admit to myself that 20+ years of unsorted unorganised random emails in five different archive formats is really not worth hanging onto against the hypothetical future day that I might make it all searchable. what even would I be looking for?
now also turned the rest of the machine off. I don't think there was anything particularly valuable still stored on it, but I guess now I will find out
my old shell host appears to have been used overnight by a spammer, but I've not changed any config on it in donkey's years and surely if it were an open relay others would have discovered it by now? turned the smtp service off now, anyway
damnitwhat happened to my early night? again? argh.
https://github.com/telent/nixwrt/commit/ead2246db4ef20ea83e8c1830b62230b9316d07e converting nixwrt "modules" to use overlay-style recursion with fixpoint so that many modules can customise and use the same busybox package. Not yet sure if it works
In the spirit of openness and fast feedback loops, if you're reading this I'm inviting you to critique my (unsubmitted) NixCon2018 talk proposal
(Tell me if you'd turn up to the talk and what you might want to hear about)
https://ww.telent.net/2018/6/13/solder_but_no_wiser sorry, just because I missed last week's #nixwrt blog entry doesn't mean you get twice as much this week, it just means I have more trouble remembering what I did. Warning: contains lumps of molten metal.
