For the curious, the plastic bit is to hold a foldable keyboard so that it doesn't fold while it's on my lap and I'm trying to use it, as well as to hold my phone on the other side. It's my first 3D object design, so I decided to first make sure I could print the thing that holds the keyboard before I try to figure out something fancy to prop up the phone. The phone, the keyboard, and the plastic thing all fit in a pocket together, albeit bulkily.
First prototype of the missing bit of my phone-as-pocket-laptop setup. It needs rounded corners rather than right-angle corners, and it needs something to replace the binder clip and eraser as the thing propping up the screen. But today I'm a little bit closer to having a usable laptop that fits in my pocket.

Dear Ad network --
In 1 week, I plan to benchmark all your advertisment delivery systems from IP address block XX.XX/16
Please note attached Intel microcode license may apply to your servers. If you don't want me benchmarking your ad servers, simply blacklist my IP block now.
PS The benchmarking will continue indefinitely.
After about 6 years of using Arch Linux on my daily-driver computers and Debian on the rest, today I have started my permanent migration to NixOS.
If you have to configure it, it's not user-friendly. If you can't configure it, it's user-hostile.
I implemented a pipeline operator in Rash (my Racket shell) that uses infix math if there is a number where the command would usually be. So now I can just type math expressions in my shell with no ceremony. So I guess I have no more reason to launch a Python repl ever again?
I think it says a lot that I would be in a much bigger hurry to leave Github if it had been bought by Google (which at one point I really liked) rather than Microsoft (which I used to hate more than probably any other tech company).
I'm really excited that the github acquisition is fueling a lot of interest in federated git hosting. I've wanted that for years.
this little platformer game video made me laugh more than I have at anything in a while https://twitter.com/P_MEN876/status/955430679646371840
<p>Hello world from Rackstodon</p>
Hmm... I don't look much at the federated timeline because everything seems to be in languages I can't read. I saw a setting to filter by language but it doesn't seem to be working. Oh well.
Apple: We triple-encrypt all your devices with military-grade encryption, then feed the decryption key to an intern, then throw the intern into the dinosaur pit. Even the NSA could never crack our crypto! You could bring down a government or fight a small war with our devices!
Also Apple: But if you just type 'enter' you can log in as root.
