Just about to import my follow list from @diegovicente ... For all those who follow me there, a follow in this new account is greatly appreciated! 😊
Yesterday I decided to rescue my Pocket CHIP from oblivion and start playing again with it.. The company behind it crashed, but everything was open source so it should be more or less fine.
To flash it, I was getting an error about the machine not being in FEL mode. I assumed it was a flash mode that was enabled in the settings menu, until I noticed that the verb was "jumpered in FEL mode". I actually had to physically bridge two GPIO pins! This is so funny
Turns out my instance was toast for two hours because it reached its hard disk limit: live/public was around 25G
#MastoAdmins, any tips for maintenance to prevent reaching the limit in the future (apart from `tootctl media remove`)?
"Why do I need a 4Ghz quadcore to run facebook?" This is why. A single word split up into 11 HTML DOM elements to avoid adblockers.
The year is 2025. Mastodon has 3 separate federations: "The Core Instances", "The Badlands" and "The Outer Rim Worlds". The Outer Rim Worlds, long since cut off from the Mastodon Core, have developed their own set of rules. Some say, they are even working on their own Mastodon code base, but no one knows for sure anymore, as most are too afraid to venture past...The Badlands.
And today is the aftermath of #FOSDEM where I can grab some chocolate and coffee to chill a bit before flying back home.
tl;dr: meetups > devrooms > keynotes, sr.ht is awesome, I sincerely hope Solid will be awesome, the veggie burgers are amazing even if you eat meat, and the weather in Brussels changes super fast.
One thing is for sure, see you in FOSDEM 2020!

I watched Ghost Stories (2018) a couple days ago and it was frankly much better than I expected. Not the horror movie that is going to change your life (I have a recommendation for that too) but still is fairly well made and entertaining.
It helps that every time I'm about to watch a horror movie I assume it's going to be painfully mediocre, but still, that is a healthy attitude to have if you like the genre. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5516328/
Wait, was this whole article not ironic? Or was it too subtle? The author seems sincerely grateful and everything just looks terrifying to me.
