Alright, time for a new home. Fosstodon has been recommend to me by quite a few people as the place that matches my interests, so, uh, here I am!

For those not following me over from, I'm a FOSS community manager, wannabe data scientist, sysadmin and devops enthusiast. Currently very interested in and , but will happily talk endlessly about pretty much anything.

For those of you who struggle with opening hundreds of browser tabs with docs for each module, try *ansible-doc* cli command.

Run `ansible-doc -s shell` and see for yourself.

It is a CLI miracle!

Alright, I think I will let this run. Still a bit of slippage in the curve on the first few layers, but it's recovered and is adhering now. Photos in an hour or so :)

still nope. Sigh. Twiddle a few more things ...

Side shout out to Octoprint from making it way easier to interact with the printer...

OK, here we go:

Small perimeters: 25 mm/s
External perimeters: 25 mm/s

Lets lower those and up the bed temp for the first layer a touch ... here goes.

5 layers in, nope. That shell along the inner curve just isnt adhering right. Maybe I can find a curve radii setting, or a perimeter shell speed ...

@Tay0 thoughts?

Time to have another go with PrusaSlicer and see if I can get a good print.

I *really* want to move to a FOSS slicer (which I believe PrusaSlicer is, based off the slic3r codebase) and away from Cura, but damm if it Cura doesn't make it easy to get good prints ...

OK, now my *slight* error has been fixed, the @matrixdotorg room for this is *actually* public. Much thanks to those who pointed out the broken link ;)

We hope this can become a place to discuss open tooling that will last well beyond the initial event!

Thats UK time time. Spheres are hard to work with, m'kay?

I don't do this often, but ... occasional shameless plug alert 😀

EdinbR and PyDataEdinburgh are hosting a joint event later this month.

CODING IN THE OPEN: a week of lunchtime talks on working with open principles

Join us and an amazing group of speakers, 14-18 June 2021, 1-2pm daily!

That feeling when you run your carefully crafted model, full of *hope*, and *anticipation*, and you look at the results ...

“Cactus Comments is a federated comment system for the web, based on the Matrix protocol.”

Very cool!

Today was a day where the effort that goes into community building pays off. A person joins a channel, introduces themselves, and turns out to have authored a package that solves a core need for me. Result.

It's a good feeling. You should try it :P (and thanks @samfirke) @rstats!FeFZUTDOtgIlOUoYh

Really good precision on my weather data today


There's only one choice of T-shirt for my vaccination appointment...

@gwmngilfen @rstats no plans (yet). This is part of a bigger project for the institute I am working at.

The roads were actually only a "side-quest" so to speak, and there is not that much to talk about it either...

Gathering the data is quite easy (and fast!), using OSM's Overpass-API, for which I wrote a tiny function in my WIP package of osm-related functions for R:

The attached picture shows the function call to collect the data. It was plotted using just a for-loop

Pfft. has ruined this week's plans for building models ....

pffft apparently i have forgotten how to link the gruppe bot :/
