#Introduction Hi everyone! I'm a PhD student in computer science, studying the intersection between formal logic and artificial intelligence.
I also fumble around with #hamradio and enjoy vibing outdoors when the weather is nice. When I'm extra ambitious, I'll add a hike in!
I give a more informal account of how I archive my toots onto my #Hugo blog.
My Python script which creates the Hugo files:
I wrote up a post on how I display a single toot using #Hugo on my website.
This doesn't cover how I archive all my toots yet, that deserves a separate post :)
TIL one can style #rss feeds 🤯
You can even provide an info message for people who don't know what RSS is 💡
Here's mine: https://darekkay.com/atom.xml
It's based on this script: https://github.com/genmon/aboutfeeds/blob/main/tools/pretty-feed-v3.xsl
Great post from Ben Orlin on treating time as a constraint and not an optimization target.
Example from his post: Instead of what is the fastest meal I can make, consider what’s the best meal I can make in the next 40 minutes?
Wrote a blog post on using `git bisect` to efficiently find where a test script fails.
I don't know how I used #git for so long before learning about this 😲
my lastest project has been an #mpcnc which has taken me several weeks to build. I particularly enjoyed building the electronics box, which allowed me to do some #soldering, #iot and some #woodwork. The best part is that it's almost 100% made out of stuff I had lying around. Even the table is made out of reclaimed wood. Total spend maybe NZ$250.
What do people use for backups?
I use Borg Backup to Borg Base, or have the repositories on a dedicated NAS which syncs them to Backblaze or Wasabi.
For commercial stuff, I like Commvault. I just found it a lot better than Veeam. As for Amanda/Zmanda and Bacula, I've not really had great luck with them, but that was 5+ years ago.
Does anybody have a favorite way of embedding PDF slide decks onto a webpage?
Working on the presentations page for my website, and currently I am using the <embed> tag.
Does anyone still use SVN or CVS for any of their projects?
One project that I collaborate in uses #SVN and honestly I quite like the sparse directories feature (https://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.8/svn.advanced.sparsedirs.html)
Sparse checkouts in #git don't quite feel the same...
