Pinned toot

"allvm-meta" is now public, containing little meta but two items that are worth sharing couldn't be more different:

* The ALLVM Logo source files and renderings
* Most (?) of the bsd kernel module I wrote for close-to-bare hosting of enough of an LLVM JIT to codegen the bitcode for FreeBSD kernel. From 2013! \o/
The latter isn't documented and is missing some minor bits (patches for uclibc, LLVM, etc.) that once I get a spare weekend I'll search old backups for.

That this isn’t the end, that there’s another world out there for taking advantage of us, blame us for letting them get away with this, blame all the banks of corporate memory...

I think the manual was printed at roughly 0.9x proper size, judging by the tip actually appropriate and all the actual-size-but-not-really depictions of parts/screws. Estimate not based on measurement.

Although minus 10 points because a screwdriver with a tip that size will definitely not do the job for any of this, but since it sets up the hammer joke I'll forgive it.

As a reward to those still following this thread, I present the following (which is clearly where the tech writers spent most their energy):

I've officially spent more energy on worrying about quality of that image than these folks did on spelling. I mean, dege?!

Haha maybe it's bc I've just got shit vision and am generally kinda used to a things bring blurry sometimes (and overdue for new glasses/updated script). You know, since that's the world I experience at least once/day :). Hashtag brave hashtag hero.

I saw it blurry but honestly am kinda surprised it turned out that way, given the subject and autofocus and crazy high res cameras .... easy to get used toand expect good results even when sloppy with focus.

Assembling furniture is like giant legos for adults. My childhood of training is paying off.

Also I hope Clare was expecting this to be a spaceship.

"oh it's out of focus for everyone not just those who've been drinking"

Blur filter activated, apparently, lol oops sorry

Those cam connectors[1] are very satisfying and "neat", IMO. Manual calls them "hidden cam"s, though, which idk maybe isn't the best name...


If this TV stand fails, it's because I couldn't find the dege and it's entirely my fault.

Just released a new tool y'all might like:

DIY Dynamic DNS β€” the simple, Unix-philosophy way to retrieve your home network's IP address remotely.

It lets you check your home IP address from anywhere, and is designed to make remote connection easy without a full DDNS server.

You can self-host it or use the public version I'm hosting.

(Built with #rust)
