I will be working on the GNU Guix continuous integration system for the next few months thanks to the NGI0 PET Fund:

Trump, Youtube, Violence 

This video from Vice is a collection of things said/cahnted as the attempted US Coup. It's sad, funny, and terrifying


This video of OpenPilot on American Truck Simulator is interesting.

It seems to struggle more here than even with some real world road conditions.

My /e/ privacy OS won't update, and I can't get the darn thing to sideload. Getting it installed at all was a feat. I'm banging my head against a virtual wall.

I have one of the older Pine64 phones... Is it hard to put a different/better OS on it than UBPorts?

Is it worth it?

@Lofenyy you've done this if I recall?

They use Zoom but also CryptPad...


So confused. :)

I'm attending a virtual Cypurr event 👍 but they're running it on Zoom 👎

It makes me sad. Kinda wish they'd set a better example.

releasing this later today probably, then finishing up a few remaining things (opna adpcm fades, opl3 fades, opl3 channel muting), then probably 1.0. then 1.1 will add better scrolling UX based on my experiences in several weeks of using mp3 players

CW: LARPers 

As much as I want to enjoy LARPers, and like Mega64... this is what it's like being around people who are using the entire school/hotel/whatever to LARP and you're not in the game.

Tired (2007): Vi sitter här i Venten och spelar lite DotA

Wired (2021): Mi estas sur Mumble ludante Dota 2.

Mental Health, Abuse 

I had a dream about the person who was abusive to me for a long time and who I still have nightmares several times a week. But this time they agreed (at least for now) to be a Harvey.


Oh, won't you come with me
And a-take my hat?
Oh, won't you come with me
And we'll-walk this lad?
Please take my hat

Video game idea:

There's a lot of money in video games based on TV shows.

It's Miyazaki's 80th birthday and because he loves us and wants us to be happy, Ghibli just release almost 2,000 hi-res images from their films for reasonable use. So get on that.


According to halacha, when eating a dish of mixed components, one need pronounce only the blessing over the main components, thus for a chocolate croissant one would say the blessing over the dough, and skip the blessing over the chocolate.But in the case of the Krembo, there is no consensus as to which is the "main" component: the biscuit, or the cream and chocolate. One solution is to bless over each component separately.

Under kashrut, the dietary rules of Jewish law or (Halacha), some orthodox rabbis find significance to the order in which one eats a Krembo. The blessing over the biscuit is boreh miney mezonot, whereas the blessing over the cream and chocolate is shehakol nihiyya bidvaro.

Telling someone that they should use X instead of Y is like going to your friend's place to look at their extensive VHS collection and telling them that Betamax is better.
