@garritfra Have you see Haxe language? You might find some ideas there for your own - haxe.org/

Why does my Thinkpad constantly throttle the CPU after I unplug AC power. Even typing into a box lags significantly (both in a browser and elsewhere). I've tried every quick trick to set CPU to high performance mode in the governor - but nothing does the trick except a reboot.

It's shit like this that makes me know my next laptop will be from an actual Linux vendor like System76.

Me & my big bro trying to remember a LEGO set we had growing up:

It was a pirate ship

No, it was a space ship

It had dragon wings

What? It had a periscope

There was a monkey involved

Wasn’t it a little boy?

Turns out, yes. It was all those things.

What made people like JSON was that they thought “Oh it’s just JavaScript, we can eval it straight up” and things were happy happy joy joy and then they remembered that there is something called malicious actors and then they had to write a parser anyway and everyone died.

I'm sure you will all be thrilled to know that my new rig now has 2 12v, 4 pin Noctua fans in it that are working perfectly! 😂

Mission complete!

It's an unusually kickass Monday. Because THIS Monday marks the beginning of my new role as a Community Space Manager with @VoiceHQ@twitter.com, plus the launch of Tech For Everyone!

I'll have a lot more to say and show you later. Until then, go rock your Monday!

@funnylookinhat I ended up figuring it out.

I needed to set up my git server so that requests to https://path.to/my/repo?go-get=1 returned a specific file with some metadata documented here:


The meta tag has the form: <meta name="go-import" content="import-prefix vcs repo-root">

Finally watched Knives Out. It was so good!! Highly recommended as a fun and thrilling murder mystery.

Decided to go with the flow and switch my default branch to main.

@ndanes @funnylookinhat I've been very happy with my System76 laptop. It's definitely the best built laptop I've ever had.

They also had good customer service when I had an issue.

The only downside is price, so if you're comfortable with that, then it's definitely worthwhile.

When you live at the end of a dead-end road and have only one neighbor... you learn a lot about the Amazon Prime delivery truck routing algorithms (and how much work they need).

It's at least a once-a-week occurrence that we get a prime truck flying through our driveway pulling a fast turnaround with no deliveries to be made.

And we're 1/3 of a mile beyond the next closest house - so you know that the routing is doing some real funky A* on those drivers. :)

Decided to use my break between jobs to do some more spoon carving. It's definitely starting to look like something.

@funnylookinhat it’s 2021, we can have human-readable filenames, damn it!

So I finally decided to stick with GoatCounter. Plausible is really nice but has too many moving parts for my setup. GoatCounter is a single binary and can be backed by SQLite which is perfect for the very low volume of my website.

Considering features, for my use case both tools seemed pretty identical but I feel plausible can do a bit more advanced stuff than GC.

Pinging @plausible @softinio and @funnylookinhat because they participated in the thread 😊

Six months old this week. For the last few weeks, he's grown half a pound a day.

In other news - Deno keeps looking better and better: deno.land/posts/v1.7

The top feature is also the one that is most interesting to me - compiling static binaries that include a runtime (and optionally certs, and of course permissions). Nice!
