Is anybody attending #DevConfCZ next month in Brno? Would be a good place to meet up IRL with fellow Fosstodon members
Also, this looks like a nice display for a project that needs to be ultra small. Both of these displays have very low power consumption and work on 5V. Great for a mobile project.
We like to talk about the seedy underbelly of the internet being dark net sales of cheap meth and fake assassination sites, but the real seedy behavior is by large companies that prey on the lives of our children, creating shadow profiles for even the youngest of them.

I've been listening to three programming-language podcasts lately.
The #rust one ends with the host personally thanking all of his patreon supporters.

Did you know that vim's `:w` command can pipe the saved buffer directly to a shell command? I didn't: in the past, I'd done things like `:w` and then `:! wc -w %` to count the words in a file. But I could do the same thing with `:w !wc -w`! Even better, `:w` can operate on a text object, so a command like `vip:w !wc -w` will count the words in the current paragraph!
(And if, like me, you use vim for tooting, `:w !wc -c` gives you the chars in the current toot.)
