lifehack: whenever public wifi asks you for your email, instead of giving it to them, do this ONE NEAT TRICK

look at the name of the company trying to collect it (it will never be the restaurant or cafe, always some soulless data brokering tech firm) and type in "sales" or "hello" @companyname.website

give them a taste of their own medicine!!

Managed to get today's part 1 down from my initial ~3.39 seconds to ~0.07 seconds.

Not to say that my second solution was good, more just how bad my initial one was.

Is there a neater way to do this? (rust) Show more

Anyone have a recommendation for a typing program?

That's the end of the soldering portion. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy it. Work has been very meetingy recently, and sitting alone in the house, listening to podcasts while soldering something repetitive has been a really nice break.

Finally flashed the firmware. Forgot to relog after adding myself to the uucp group so wasn't seeing any changes under /dev.

Not the most perfect of solder jobs I've done, but by no stretch the worst.

Picked up my keyboard kit from the postoffice today. Pretty excited to start soldering / re-learning to type. Cheers @technomancy

Today's best kringloop purchase is this strange ergonomic "handshoe" mouse. It's made by a local company just outside of Leiden.

It's pretty huge but very comfortable. Needs a good wash, then I'm going to try using it at work for a while.

Not bad for €2.50
