Pinned ping

@Skirmisher one time a few years ago an intern asked me what a dll *is* and i reflexively said 'a file with a bunch of shit in it'

Pinned ping

after a couple years since my last attempt (, i built another portable raspberry pi.

specifically, I am using a raspberry pi 3 a+, for size and power consumption. the display is a hyperpixel4.

the power supply is the same adafruit powerboost 1000c I used before, which unfortunately is not powerful enough to drive my pi4. but the pi3a+ is an ok compromise and there are some savings from not having ethernet and a usb hub.

i'm using a chunky 6000mah battery with it so it last ... forever, but is pretty heavy. i didn't really do any battery life testing with my smaller lighter batteries /or/ this one, so that's a change I *might* make in the future...

If you are depressed about Figma, remember that this is an outcome the owner of every for-profit software company dreams of. Every other commercial software vendor you rely on is working tirelessly to hand that product over to someone who doesn’t care about it too

who called them sweet potato chips and not taro cards

the other thing that i've mostly forgotten, but can still kinda remember, is the feeling that probably smartphones were gonna remain a kind of niche thing for businesspeople or nerds who were into gadgets or very social young people who had to communicate with their friends all the time. like, the same kind of crowd who would have their own blog or be into tinkering with technology. i kinda felt like most normal people wouldn't be interested in a pocket computer & carry on using regular phones
