Help stop the sale of Public Interest Registry to a Private Equity Firm


With the news of the .org TLD being sold to a private equity firm, I've been thinking that maybe it's time to abandon the domain that I've held for 19 years.

There's a campaign to stop the sale ( but I've always felt like the centralized domain name registry implements artificial scarcity and rent-seeking.

So maybe instead of just choosing a different one, now is a good time for me to reexamine the value of keeping a domain name "forever" and explore alternatives.

Well, that took a while but my changes to add support for the SH1106 OLED display driver IC are now merged upstream into QMK master! 馃帀

Does this mean I can now put "C-language embedded driver development" on my resume? 馃槻

(no, my changes were tiny)

I've been adding very important features to my #aquarium monitoring setup tonight.

I got a little 128x64 I2C OLED display for $2.50. It said in the product listing that it used an SSD1306 driver IC, which made me think it would work with firmware.

I hooked it up but it only showed static.

So I read some datasheets and learned some stuff and did some hacking and now (or very soon) QMK will support this OLED display too! (Turns out it actually uses an SH1106.)

Pictured: the wireless receiver for my Mitosis , with a speaker and this OLED display attached.

鈥楬TML, CSS and our vanishing industry entry points鈥

this says so many things i agree with, i hardly know where to begin pulling quotes. web design and dev used to be something you could organically transition toward from a variety of other roles or hobbies. there was a broad, porous space between laypeople and ultra nerds. this zone created a culture i was able to grow and succeed within. it is now nearly gone.

馃泿锔 Website update:

- Still a bunch of CSS cleanup to do, but I've got marginalia working! 馃槏 Soon I want to get a "light theme" toggle going.

- Lots of revision to my article re: "purist free software systems shouldn't shun non-free programs"

- Some revision to my "exec the arguments" draft, including implementation in bash, c, python, rust, and scheme

@datagrok warning: afaik bitstream vera also has worse coverage of international scripts.

Do you find that on some sites, emojis show up as outlines instead of color images? If so, try uninstalling DejaVu fonts and installing Bitstream Vera fonts instead.

鈥 So I am excited to say that as soon as I get all the detritus swept up from having ham-handedly smashed their CSS together with mine, I'll have nice mobile-friendly marginalia and sidenotes on my Markdown-source-format webpages! It's already mostly-working! I've wanted this for so long! 馃榿
