8 months ago, I put my home fileserver's root filesystem on a Lexar USB stick, so that the big archival hdds could stay spun-down when ssh'ing in. Worked great.
Yesterday the server died. Suddenly seeing I/O errors and USB disconnects when running 'ls', 'echo', etc. The USB stick was toast. (Even so, the 13GB file transfer in progress ran to completion.)
Today: ripped it out, found a spare, provisioned with debootstrap etc.
Now it's back online and my LVM RAID is unperturbed. 😎👍 tyvm linux
i've been noodling on this thing since the late '90s, usually with little bursts of productivity jarringly interrupted by life and work
then when I return months later I have to rediscover where I left off which is super frustrating
and I used to have the output tightly bound to the web design trends du jour which would be outdated every time I return to it
so being able to get this update out makes me pretty happy
(and will allow me to finally update my website/portfolio again, for job hunting reasons)
Well it's not by a long shot cleaned up to the point that it's easy to use yet but
I have at least finally updated makebakery to un-break its demo site 👍
makebakery is a static site generator built mostly on GNU Make that does some clever things to allow for toggle-able makefile modules that enable a variety of source and output formats.

"The Cicada Principle and Why It Matters to Web Designers" (2011): how to use small overlapping tiled images of relatively-prime dimensions to make a low-bandwidth background that does not appear to repeat for tens of thousands of pixels.
"Cicadients" (2012): doing the same with CSS gradients.

CGA Mode 4 is 320x200 but the pixels are not square.
So here's how to CGA-ify a photo:
1. Crop 4:3 aspect ratio
2. Scale to 320:200
3. Mode>Indexed, CGA palette. Experiment to find best dithering setting.
5. Scale up to 4:3 aspect ratio, no interpolation.
I did a bit of hue adjustment before conversion here to give the background more color variety.
