Yay, I now have running on a PYNQ-Z1 FPGA board. It has a 650MHz dual-core Arm Cortex-A9 with 512MB RAM. That is not enough memory to run though.

I wrote a new article: "A shop, the planets and the days of the week", on the #Japanese names of planets and weekdays, and the reason behind the ordering of the weekdays.

As bonus, it has a small #Haskell program with explanations ^_^


Die Polizei spricht von 2.500 Menschen, die in #Krefeld an #Klimastreik und -demo teilnehmen. Die Veranstalter nennen 4.000. Die Wahrheit liegt vermutlich dazwischen.
Jetzt kommt es zur Sitzblockade auf der St.-Anton-Straße.

We're waiting to get to the square #ClimateStrike
There are 20k people reported

Huge turnout for the #ClimateStrike #march and #protest in #Liverpool. Loved the bit when we set off and all the workers on the scaffolding opposite St George's Plateau stopped to bang their spanners against the scaffolding in support

The mountains around the Mont Blanc are amazing. The glacier on it will probably be gone after this century...

#mountains #cycling #photografy

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.


you, a brainlet: I'm gonna stay up late

@trickster really wish we had learned algorithms, i.e.: solving problems in math, rather than whatever our teachers' interpretation of algebra was

isn't this just beautiful?

I have noticed one of those fun polls but for how you like your eggs:

Poached is winning at the moment. A method to reproduce *exactly* the kind of poached egg you like involves a microwave. It is repeatable Every time and perfect, given the same starting conditions.

1/2 cup | 140ml Cold water. Cold egg. 1:05 minute in the µwave

For a typical 700 watt µwave, but maybe yours is 1200! Start low and work up. Being wrong makes a mess! But then forever perfect poached egg.

there were some things i ddn't knew about raspberry pis:

"Linux runs on that ARM CPU, we know that, but we might be surprised to learn that Linux on this device is only a second class citizen. The GPU cores run a real time operating system called ThreadX. This operating system is closed source and rules the system without the open source Linux Kernel being aware of it."

and guess who bought the ThreadX operating system last april?

Good morning!

I'm supposed to socialise today and I'm not very in the mood so I'll try to prepare the bread dough, visit the garden and play the mandolin a little bit first to compensate.

Self care 💜

Here you have some roses for you.

"The Baseline Interpreter: a faster JS interpreter in Firefox 70" by Jan de Mooij

A Speedometer benchmark improvement from 31 to 69 is no joke. I'm curious to see how this will affect Firefox for Android's performance in particular.
