Pinned ping

📌 obligatory pinned post. PLEASE read this before reading any of my posts 📌 

hi, i'm knuxify!

i code in python sometimes, i have some "old" laptops, i wrote a federated discord clone protocol, i make bad music snippets sometimes. you know; fun

- all my most important projects will be listed on my website: tilde.town/~knuxify
- on this account, i tend to shitpost or post about music. i might also make the occasional tech post, but generally you should look for these here: @knuxify
- generally if i write a sentence with proper punctuation and capitalization it's a joke, unless i'm posting about some project of mine or something
- i promise i'm not a techbro
- see also:

i tend to delete posts right after posting them quite often, don't worry if you can't find a post or something

just watched the lgr video on the cybiko and it's just one of these charming things that you love even though they're clunky and probably don't work well in practice

tbh... i'd love to see something like this, but online. also tiny monochrome pixel screens are super cute i think we should go back to using them

update: the boost button is back, this post is now obsolete

actually no the only thing i'll realistically do is mainline dev, and that's super quick with envkernel

thankfully i still have the original 240gb ssd. i guess i'll just have to use it instead (and decide whether i want windows, linux or dualboot somehow on it)

honestly, i'm kind of considering just throwing windows on it, then using wsl to ssh into my main pc when i'm away. how exactly i'll manage to remotely shut my main pc down/turn it back on is, frankly, beyond me, but if i figure it out i think it'd work well

so the other day i wiped my laptop and tried installing arch on it, although in the meantime i also took it apart and realized it had a second msata slot. after i experimented with it, i tried installing arch, but it started throwing weird drive errors at me. it got sorted out quickly, and i decided to first install windows 10 instead. so today i decided that i'll finally install arch so i booted up the install usb and started partitioning. suddenly when i did mkfs.ext4 it started throwing errors again and now the system doesn't detect the disk

tl;dr: i, uhhh, might've broken my laptop's ssd

and iirc this happens both on my windows install and my linux install. truly odd

like, it's just empty. no boost icon. my boost privileges have been revoked

(except they haven't been revoked, and i'm quite sure boosting works fine regardless. it's just very annyoing)

is it just me or is the boost button gone for others on cybre.space as well

there's no joke to be found here. i just posted the hashtag. laugh

a small update on this: in the last 5 days, i managed to get mainline to boot into the initramfs (the problem wasn't the clocks, although most of them are still broken); also added support for the bcm59054 to the bcm590xx driver. now i'm figuring out everything else, basically

"but how is that different from just using your gpu?" shut up you don't get my revolutionary new startup idea

Show thread

we've had cryptocurrencies that use CPUs, GPUs, and now there's one that uses hard driver. but you know what noone has tried yet?

screens. monitors. mining with a framebuffer. you can SEE the coins flowing on your display!!!

> i realized 10/100MB/s metrics on router pages mean 10 megabytes download/upload, so my router is capped at 10MB/s and i didn't realize until now

ok it's probably more advanced than that idk i just heard that gigabit networking = realistically ~100MB/s in a linus tech tips video don't judge me

home server updates:
- i realized 10/100MB/s metrics on router pages mean 10 megabytes download/upload, so my router is capped at 10MB/s and i didn't realize until now
- i decided to briefly test nextcloud on my travelmate, and it ran... very well! especially for a single-core x64 laptop from 2008. honestly, i'm kind of suprised and pretty impressed. i wonder if i could somehow use it as a homeserver and if so, how much power it would draw compared to the odroid
