Setup nitter/bibliogram/teddit on my home server in containers using openvpn to route them through Asia/Europe.

They are only accessible via Tailscale MagicDNS with a Let's Encrypt certificate.

As a final touch I setup Tampermonkey to automatically redirect reddit.com, twitter.com, and instagram.com to the Tailscale endpoint.

Ugly RUN hack in a Dockerfile for today, embedding a case statement to change a var depending on the architecture.

curl -vsSL corretto.aws/downloads/resourc$(case $(uname -m) in x86_64) echo "amd64";; aarch64) echo "aarch64";; esac).deb

Of course once I got this working I realized that I could use $(dpkg --print-architecture)

you know it's a good read when one of the first sentences is,

"While the Mac Plus is normally fanless..."

I want to say things in the Linux community have changed in 15 years, but then I browse digg.com on archive.org and things haven't really changed that much,

I'm in-between Generation X and Millennial.

All I know is that I don't let computers tell me what to do, I tell computers what the fuck to do.

When you iphone shits the bed and requires a complete restore, do you know what still works?

Minidisc 💽 player still works.

Protip: when needing to add a 10 second pause when using VLC to record to a minidisc 💽 with track markers using SynchoRec

1. File->Open Network
2. Add URL: vlc://pause:10
3. Continue adding pauses between each track
4. SynchroRec

They 💽 smell so fresh when opened.

Recording "Futurecop! - From Oceans Within". VLC playlist of FLAC audio from a MacBook 2015 optical out to a Sony MZ-R70.

How do you fix a Raspberrypi :raspberrypi: that isn't booting FreeBSD :freebsd: ?

Easy, just connect a Pocket C.H.I.P. to the GPIO headers then ssh into the chip and run,

screen /dev/ttyS0 115200,cs8

It really couldn't be any simpler.

The Year is 2022 and it's easier to create a minidisc 💽 album than it is to make an mp3.

Bought a Plex Lifetime license like 10 years ago for 50$ and happily using it since then.

However now that I've started using Tailscale and no longer rely on port forwarding I'm seriously considering moving to Jellyfin.

Just started re-buiding my mp3 collection in case this is a project I end up doing in the next couple months.

Repaired my SNES today. Replaced the capacitors and gave it a good cleaning with a flux cleaner pen and some electrical contact cleaner.
