I'm writing code in ClearCase and Git at the same time... we did git init and then the git folder was on another person's machine before git push happens. this might kill me or make me more powerful than anyone could possibly imagine

every now and then i look out the window and see the water really close and think "oh shit, that's probably bad" and then i remember i live in a boat now. (at least part time)

apparently docker doesn't make things all the same when you're trying to run stuff in a raspberry pi

also fuck the cops and abolish prisons

Wow HK protests are getting wild, no wait that's just Minneapolis, USA.

hello fellow white people. it's easy to post "fuck the police" and say "i would never call the police" and listen to millions of dead cops and think 1312 thoughts but! have you considered what you would do INSTEAD of calling the fash? no? how about a lil homework:

I always have talk writers block until I give in and just use a million animal pictures and memes

honestly, python is so frustrating for me. every time i use it i lament that everyone uses it.

Set up TFA on my raspberry pi. Now you need my public key and my phone to get inside of it remotely ^_^

I'm a bit proud of this set-up I developed to upcycle plastic juice bottles (juice is one of the few beverages that are sold without a deposit around here). The upper containers are drip-watered from the bottles above, and have holes in the bottom so that the ones beneath them will catch the excess water. It worked very well last year, so I just built another one. It's a very space-effective and low-maintenance solution for plants that don't need a lot of soil to grow.

So far the hardest thing has been remembering to turn off the VPN when trying to access local network devices...

I decided to buy the FreedomBox hardware (which is open source, btw) server and it arrived less than 24 hours after I ordered! ^_^

Well, I though, I have a Raspberry Pi, why not figure out how to run Freedom Box on RPi?
1 hour later I've bricked my Pi, not anything to do with Freedom Box, just because apt upgrade failed at an important moment and anyway now it's a Raspberry Brick.

I decided to go with Freedom Box (freedombox.org/) for lots of reason, not least of which was ease of use.

So I'm trying to run CI pipelines and host my pet projects on a server in my home. I've never done any home admin stuff and I'm worried about security when I'm not given the tools and the somewhat of a safety net that AWS et al. gives.

"David Lyon (1994) “suggests that the difference made by information technologies is one of degree, not of kind, that they simply ‘make more efficient more widespread, and simultaneously less visible many processes that already occur’” (Raley, 2013, p. 124)."

i.e. the problems posed by big data aren't fundamentally that different to other de-humanizing automated/algorithmic based problems, maybe they're just _bigger_ problems
