Real hackers enable the evil bit on all their outgoing IPv4 packets! :linus: My RFC 3514 kernel module has gotten a lot of traffic recently. I wish I knew why...

My mind is being blown by what you can do with SAT/SMT solvers in Python. You can use them to solve sudoku puzzles in just a handful of lines! I'm starting to wonder what you can't do with them...

If you don't know where the output is going, then you are the file. :ziltoid: :thonking:

watch -d cat /proc/interrupts
# This is one of my fav Linux commands to show people. Watch those interrupt counters climb up!

:firefox: After seeing how CSS and JS can track your mouse movements I decided to compile myself. I commented out two lines to disable all CSS hover and HTML/JS onmouse(enter,leave) events. Pretty neat! Although I have no way to turn it back on for those sweet Wikipedia page previews... I hope I can figure out how to make it a per page option.

*Made possible by FOSS*

Interesting, looks like they are taking the principles of FOSS and applying them to hardware and design. Still, I think it's not exactly what I'm looking for. Is there an community like the FSF that allows hobbyists and EEs alike to share and freely license their schematics/designs? I don't have any extraordinary schems (mostly for guitar pedal circuits), but I think it would be incredibly cool to have a site and community that did just that.

If you use Firefox and open this link and see "", you should read the blog entry linked there and fix your firefox config:

The NSA now have source posted for their reverse engineering platform, Ghidra. Last I checked it was an empty repo. Seems to work well! I disassembled a small program I had laying around and it eye-opening to see in action. Time to poke at some other software I have...

What's on your mind?

has a release candidate with online multiplayer! Fosstodon peeps feel free to friend me on there at blunaxela@stk. :tux:

time! I'm a computer engineer by day and a half-elf druid by night. In my free time I like to tinker with Linux, software-defined radio, digital logic, FPGAs, lock picking, and D&D. I wrote some code that is running on the space station! I somehow let my wife amass 8 guinea pigs. One Punch Man is awesome. Oh, and I love stroopwafels.

BTW, I use Arch Linux. (Although I'd like to try something new soon. Gentoo? Debian? Gotta stay edgy!)

I'm thinking about going to Northwest. :tux: Anyone else on Fosstodon or the fediverse thinking about going, too?

Taking my favorite game on Android, untangle, and seeing how it runs on the . Looks like I might need to change how the click/touch and drag works... I'm glad @Purism fixed the LCD panel driver. Thanks!

Alright, I _really_ like Simon Tatham's Puzzle Collection. The Android port on Fdroid is great, and I just found out many distros have packages for it, too. Try out 'untangle'!

I've just released #ncdu 1.14. This release adds mtime display & sorting, a limited form of --follow-symlinks, can display larger file counts in the file browser and fixes a few bugs you weren't likely to trigger anyway.
