I have a gen 3 echo dot which I have no intention of using in its original, factory state. It was a regift from my grandfather, who passed it off out of privacy concerns (same bro)

Do any #FOSS or #Hacker types here have any ideas of what can be done with it? Can I turn it into a bluetooth speaker with unused, overpowered hardware? Can I turn it into a processing cluster?

I'm willing to get weird with this.

(Secrets are only provided to running processes, not persisted on disk-- and I definitely forgot, restarted manually, and wondered why services didn't start... they were neatly blocked waiting for keys needed to run! teehee whoopsy! Might spend a sec making it clearer to myself when this happens....)

Noticed my NixOps-managed Nextcloud instance (basically `services.nextcloud.enable = true;` FWIW!) wasn't working, but since I build/deploy against my own nixpkgs tree (changes haven't sent upstream yet, sometimes because still working on them) I was worried something important broke and I'd missed it but since couldn't think of anything relevant recent waited until today, finally settled in for a serious debugging session and.. problem resolved in 30sec: `nixops send-keys -d ndevix` haha oops

Hahaha this image came up in a convo about -ffast-math (-Ofast actually, but nvm) and it's the greatest: nilemathclass.files.wordpress. .

I keep imagining someone seeing, instead of cute silly, the possible fallout of unsound optimizations re:precision.

"That's not the sum of 26.86 and π!..."
"Well maybe if you built your code with -ffast-math *compiler-nerd-laughing*"
(the best kind of laughter?! 💙)

And THEN this was shared by such a person and reached me. I love it. And now reached you. \o/
