@neil the FTC is quite powerful, relatively :)

Got Tidal Cycles installed with nix-shell and hacked Emacs in to letting me live-code to a live Tidal process running in the nix-shell... everything uses make-process and whatnot which expect a program name, not a shell string. messy.


i think i'm gonna defoliate my ficus tomorrow, i have supplies to re-pot and trim the roots coming soon, as well as a starter setup for the maple seeds i've been cold storing all winter. i think a few survived without molding, i'm hoping to bring at least five of the seedlings up this year.

@theruran the most stable feature-set: unavailable on the domain it was last running on, and the github source page points to another repo on a domain that doesn't exist

it's tvsf, not The Volume Settings Folder, you jerks !!!

just getting unreasonably upset at musicbrainz in-correctly title-capitalising certain artists

redacted.ch link 

redacted.ch/collages.php?id=67 This Redacted collection compiling all the use of the amen break is pretty neat.

Of course I got convinced to blindly buy a bike rack at REI that doesn’t fit my frame. I’ll just strap the bike and rack to my other bike and ride it all down there for fitting (??)


i can finally listen to some of my favorite music on my nintendo switch

prototyping an aball-compatible trackball module for the atreus

today's computer crimes, cursed, longish 

so, i have this GPD Pocket 2 acting as a nice little NixOS mule, but when I ssh from my Thinkpad to the GPD over my local wifi, both of them fall off the network until i sleep the GPD. (??)

i spent all afternoon locked in combat with this shit, and by god, it hit me that i fell in to this exact same tarpit the *last* time i was doing linux crimes! for some reason SSHing over my LAN between these two specific machines causes them both to no longer be able to communicate with anything until the GPD is shut.

it hit me like a pile of bricks when i finally saw wpa supplicant was emitting logs like "ctrl beacon event failed", then having network returning to my thinkpad the split second the gpd shut left me briefly speechless. then i remembered the last time this happened, HTTP worked over the LAN but SSH would crater the wifi. some day ill write a fable for my progeny. until then i am gonna scavenge an ether-based networking solution tomorrow, i guess.

@kyle me: why can't i buy a laptop with an atreus-style layout and a trackball

3d printed new risers for my atreus. they're not balanced and they're ugly but they printed on 5 year old PLA that i have been keeping in my living room. newer, nicer PLA coming this week. thingiverse.com/thing:4687791
