I alias "ssh" as "ish". Why? 

Because I am "insecure" 😂

@mdrights Thanks for the suggestions, will check 'em out. I'd thought the overhead associated with Kubernetes might not be worth it for what is essentially a distributed Python use-case but will have a look.

Looking for recommendations on how to set up a Raspberry Pi cluster - lots of stuff out there, not sure what is worth reading.

End goal is to be able to dispatch various Python jobs to different cores and save job outputs to some NFS drive.

@jumboshrimp Tried to watch for the first time a few weeks ago. Seems like an interesting premise but it feels a bit dated now.

@rmgr I think you can configure your shell profile to change color when using ssh. Might help in the future!

First day with a Pi Zero! Got a little screen and found someone's repo (github.com/sar02/crypto-watche) to push images to it.

Looking forward to customizing that display. It's good practice with ssh for me

@callum try not to bash Matlab too much :) doesn't always go over well with earth scientists

@yisraeldov I assume you mean that in the context of being a “software engineer”. I actually am an engineer by training, just a civil engineer!

After some thought, I've decided I can call myself a "software developer". I'd previously been disqualifying myself, but I've made some small pip-installable packages and contributed to a handful of projects... so might as well stop gatekeeping myself

Tesla states that their carbon savings so far are 3,6 megatons: tesla.com/carbonimpact?redirec

The current carbon footprint of bitcoin is 36,95 megatons/year: digiconomist.net/bitcoin-energ (probably underestimated)

The price of bitcoin has risen 10% on the announcement of this news.

Bitcoin's economic model is set up so that a 10% increase in price will lead to roughly a ten percent increase in emissions.

So in one year, this price increase will wipe out ALL of Tesla's carbon savings.

@jamesvasile Cool, yeah I was just curious as I couldn't think of anything beyond either proof of a formal education or open project contributions that can be viewed.

@jamesvasile Interesting toots! Do you have any tips for emphasizing one's coding abilities to a potential employer when coming from a non-computer science background?

I figure open source projects and contributions are a good start, but was wondering if there is anything else worth doing

The number of emails GitHub sends me to say that my latest push broke something in the continuous integration is demoralizing 🙃

In 2015, I interviewed for a job at Robinhood. The founders had seen a blog post I wrote about how the SEC killed my crypto startup, and thought I might be a good fit.

I guess they realized that it's easier to join the establishment than to beat it.

The number of remixes and covers of the Teriyaki Boyz iconic song "Tokyo Drift" from the F&F movie of the same name is bonkers 🎧

I'm waiting for the day my to-do list ever gets shorter. Not that it is a bad problem to have!
