I've been playing with i2c on and did a writeup of the basics blog.tyk.nu/blog/freebsd-and-i

Next step is getting support in the smbus2 Python library github.com/kplindegaard/smbus2 which in turn will open the door for support in Qwiic_Py_i2c github.com/sparkfun/Qwiic_I2C_

Star Trek Next Gen scripts often included "(TECH)" where the actors would insert technobable.

Mastodon uses the same technical standards as many other alternative social networks, so people on one network can follow people on others. This "network of networks" is called the Fediverse :fediverse:

✅ You can follow people from other parts of the Fediverse just like you would follow any Mastodon account!

Try it out for yourself:

@jett1oeil is an account on Instagram alternative PixelFed

@chriswere is an account on YouTube alternative PeerTube

Consumer debt is the lifeblood of our economy. All modern nation states are built on deficit spending. Debt has come to be the central issue of international politics. But nobody seems to know exactly what it is, or how to think about it.

I've been working on connectivity for the storage container which is in a location with no permanent uplink.

It's with 2 LTE uplinks and I've documented how so I never have to figure out how to use AT commands and PPP again

Back of the envelope: So, according to a more or less randomly picked internet source [0], 1 mink causes about 10 kg of CO2eq emissions over its lifetime. So, culling 15 million of them will save us about 150000 tons CO2eq per year (not counting production of whatever people will wear instead). Compare that with the Danish target of reducing emissions by 20 million tons CO2 per year by 2030. Did we just get about 1% closer to that target?

After a few failed attempts I finally have a very nice, fast and stable wall-mounted display for Grafana use.

It runs on an Intel NUC8I7BEH and I've documented the journey (including the failures):

the "file formats wiki", which explains file formats, used to be hosted on wikia. but then wikia rebranded itself to "fandom", so it's now the official wiki of the file formats fandom

relationship advice no one asked for, but its good advice, and applicable to all types of loving relationships 

the person that loves you isn't the one that's super involved in all of your passions and hobbies, the person who shares your tastes, the one that knows every detail of your obscure aesthetic

the person that loves you is the one that's excited because YOU are excited, even if they don't understand a single fucking word you are saying. they are the people who send you something completely random outside of your realm of knowledge and crossed over into theirs because they see little bits of you in their world.

it doesn't matter if this is friendship or romance or platonic life stuff. that's a person that loves you.
