Day 2 video is out:

When confronted with 2 problems, I thought, "I know, I'll use regular expressions!"

Then I had 0 problems.

There's something about these pixelated lines that feel just right.

As an experiment, I'm going to record and post my runs of this year's problems, and put them on @lbry. First one just went up! πŸŽ„πŸ˜πŸŽ„

Polymarket is slightly *more* certain that $BTC will hit $20K this month than they are that Trump lost the election.

A reminder that you can still bet against Trump winning the election at 0.87 odds:

At this point, it's not even a prediction market on Trump anymore; it's a bet on whether the Ethereum mainnet will still be around on January 20th. That's the only remaining risk.

And there it is. Incredible rally in the last 24 hours for the Eth2 staking goal led to the goal just being met.

So happy I sold my "No" position on this prediction market this morning when it was still above >0.5 😲

I have once again broken into the top 5 homeservers by ping, by just running a stock Synapse docker container on my home closet server πŸ€”

Yes! There's now a fork for !

It just launched so the userbase is minimal for now, but given the rate of innovation in the base lila codebase I think it's only a matter of time before it dethrones 81Dojo as the de-facto Shogi server (at least, for Westerners).

I've been hoarding significant YouTube channels for years, at a cost of many terabytes of HDD space. Even though they were always available for free, I was always betting on the fact that YouTube's status as being incredibly easy to archive would not last forever.

I feel vindicated, but also sad that the end of this particular era has finally arrived :(

Thanks to @debian 's €10,000 donation (and not $10,000 as announced a few hours ago), we've just reached the 4th step of our PeerTube fundraising. Many thanks to all those who donated. And it's not too late to contribute :

If they ever build a physical Internet Hall of Fame, @aphyr's blog deserves its own entire wing.

Just lost an incredibly tense and close tournament match at a critical moment, because I failed to find one of the only two winning moves for black. Black to play and win the liberty race (and thus the game):

@lbry The preference field "Start minimized" is very deceptively-named. What it actually controls is whether LBRY runs as a login service every time you boot. The fact that it's starting minimized or not is completely secondary.

BIG NEWS: Huge welcome to, who are entering Matrix!! Gitter is moving from to & building the ultimate Matrix bridge, showcasing how a large chat app can natively talk Matrix, while bringing Gitter goodness to Element! πŸš€πŸŒ‰πŸŽ‰

So, in the latest Windows Insider build, you can now mount physical ext4 partitions directly into a WSL2 distribution.

That is impressive. Microsoft just consistently impresses me with the polish they put into things like WSL and VSCode. The OSS half of the company is outperforming the moneymaking side by a large margin.

Time for another puzzle! This time, from a game of 13x13 .

White to find a winning line.

@distrotube Just a note - your Pinebook Pro's touchpad appears to still have its protective film attached. They _should_ have been removed at the factory but a number them appear to have shipped with them still attached.

They're a bit tricky to remove yourself but you should definitely do it. The touchpad looks, feels, and behaves a lot better without it.

Is there something I can be doing client-side to unify all these different wrapping strategies? Any clients that handle this properly?

This article seems to suggest there isn't, but it was written over a year ago so maybe things have changed since then?
