Looks like there's talk of dropping a large amount of #CPU cruft from the #Linux kernel with the next LTS release. ⚰️ #BringOutYourDead

So, I needed to digitally sign a document yesterday. Used my dad's Parblo A610 tablet to do it, but it wouldn't work on Fedora 33 with the latest kernel.

It did work on #OpenBSD and I didn't have to do a thing to make it work. It JUST WORKED.

I should revisit getting my Yamaha S08 supported as well. The more I use OpenBSD, the more I'm convinced that it makes a great desktop OS. 🐡

We need more tooling for #GItea APIs instead of Microsoft GitHub. I have at least two things planned for early 2021:

1. An alternative for Release Drafter, turning merged PRs into release note draft items.
2. An alternative for a GitHub app of ours, which adds a PR check that only turns green when certain labels are present.

Wrote some documentation on how PacketCrypt mining algorithm is designed so that a mining pool can double it's overall power by either:

* Doubling block mining power
* Doubling announcement mining power
* Doubling bandwidth between ann miners and pool

@FiXato you recently helped @kelbot with a terminal dashboard, and he mentioned that you used Python **and** (bash?) Scripting. I recently strung together a few existing programs to enable autorotation on Linux. Would I gain any advantage to rewrite that script in any higher level language?

In case you need to see the 2 scripts, you can check them out here: gitlab.com/RyuKurisu/autorotat

Something I would be interested in is short videos where people do a short tour of the computing devices and technology they use. In a personal way like showing off the cool tech you are personally excited about.

We had such a lovely time in our room that we decided to make it a permanent thing! ✨

Behold, a general chatroom: app.element.io/#/room/#afedive 🎉🎉

So far there have been interesting discussions about topics like , , , , , but also non-tech topics. It's at a different pace than , so they compliment each other nicely.

There's an open door policy, so anyone is welcome to join 😊

This Wikipedia sonification project came up again on HN, and I think it's a great example of the kind of things MIDI soundfonts are pretty decent at: pointalistic soundscapes with highly heterogeneous timbres:

@funnylookinhat take a look at the vault.sh to see the keyboard enablement I was struggling with 😎👍

Phew, it's been a little ordeal but a labour of love.

Proud to present the next iteration of my which should be more robust and less annoying in daily use. Only 'problem' is when the screen becomes locked and your keyboard is disabled (no easy way to enter your password) but rebooting should be a workaround for that.

It should be a desktop agnostic way to your screen and mice by method of and . Please try it and report bugs!

*Take home an Alexa-compatible Citizen Echo wall clock for just $45...*

With a title like that I was expecting one of those small Echo's to be incorporated into the clock, but it only displays timers set on a paired Echo device 😔

Last week I've been working on my autorotate scripts again. I've merged them again and working on removing the last 'annoyance'. Currently the scripts ask with each rotation if you want to keep the keyboard enabled or not (sometimes that is incorrect because it is already disabled, duh).

But with some 'yad', optionally a 'kdialog' popup message and a script I'll be able to add a icon to the systray you can click to change the active-state of the keyboard.

Pinebook and Pinetab talk 

The Pinetab is essentially the original Pinebook in different clothes. I much prefer the Pinetab for 2 main reasons and also a third reason that is really nice to have. The 2 main reasons are the pinetab keyboard is a much better layout and the touchscreen. The third reason is it being a tablet that I can completely remove the keyboard from and sit on the couch with or mount somewhere as a dashboard.

It appears that #Debian is considering dropping i386 support.

lists.debian.org/debian-devel/

My prediction: They will keep i386 support for Bullseye (barely) but it will be dropped for Bookworm.

Another script will be a first-run/setup script, to make sure everything is in place 🙂
