Beep boop.

I'm Felipe. I code in Rust, I like to make games, but I never released any. When I am in a good mood, I like to make illustrations and pixel art.

Anyone who complains about compile times, I suggest you learn you a (for great good).

Thinking I might try rewriting a small Phoenix project with IHP. But I haven’t truly learned Haskell yet. Wondering if anyone here has any experience to share.

I will be playing Starbound tonight at 10 EDT. Come watch me play terribly while I figure out this streaming business. twitch.tv/islandusurper

Started actually backing up DVDs to my home server today. Couldn’t figure out why handbrake couldn’t read some disks despite having libdvdcss installed. Turned on verbose logging ... permission denied on the device, not where I had mounted it. 🤦‍♂️

Just ran `nix optimise-store`. 11,511.2 MiB freed. 😳😅

@IslandUsurper They are a Toshiba Satellite and a Dragon Touch X10, is that affects your recommendations.

I have a couple of old Android tablets sitting around. What should I do with them? Seeing if I could put Linux on them would be fun, but it’s be nice to give them a raison d’etre, too.

At this moment, the developer I hate the most is me ~3 years ago..

Listening to game soundtracks while I work always makes me want to play them. Going to pick Aquaria up again today while the kids nap.

users, do you think the Toot! app is worth the money over the free alternatives? I'm definitely willing to pay a few bucks for a better experience, customization, etc.

I'm wondering whether there are any good alternatives for which don't have any license problems?

Looks like I can’t have email. ISP would only give me a PTR record for static IPv4, which is way more than I want to pay for. (No PTR for IPv6, alas.) I guess once I restore that box, I’ll move it to a local data center.

Riot IM is about to change its name. The new name will be announces in few weeks...

Had a power outage overnight, and now my server won’t boot. :sob: Hoping it’s just a boot loader problem, but I don’t know when I’ll have time to try to restore it.

I wrote a post about setting up a minimal Git server with a simple website.
