Anyone here into automating food production? I just finished up a practical 3D printed prototype of a mediumless microgreen grow bed. It’s all open source and up at and I could use help. I am getting ready to scale things up.

I moved to just using exposed copper wire. Makes for a MUCH easier solder job. (At least I think so with my noob solder skills)

Just finished the new and improved lighting rig for the automated food production. With this and the beta anti root clog system I should have version 0.0.15 up and growing.

Seriously fuck wifis with the fucking internal login page

One of the few things I don’t like about being in Germany. Paying €4 for this.

If you call the cops on dumpster divers you are going to hell

Maybe next time tell the world not to waste 1/3 of all edible food produced

Just designed some basic 3D printed + printer paper shoji inspired window blinds / privacy guards. Lots of screws but pretty cool I think. Does anyone think there might be an interest if I put out a tool that spat out some custom .stl files depending on the area you want to cover? Maybe sell them on Etsy if people don’t want to print them themselves? Thoughts?

This is officially the best graphic that explains how works.

Does anyone else have mixed feelings about ZFS? It’s pretty amazing and is basically a better version of btrfs, but at the same time it has an angling license and was hacked (questionably) into the Linux kernel. I want btrfs raid2 to not make me nervous. :(

I always feel awkward about gendered award shows, while at the same time being deeply bitter about not making the list 😅

Call me a giant weeb but I I just saw the Konosuba movie in theaters. Perfect combination of wholesome and lewd.

@mholiv i would like to interject for a moment, but what you refer to as Linux is actually SystemD/Linux+GNU
Linux + GNU is not a system unto itself but rather a component of a fully featured SystemD system

SystemD is a better cleaner faster way to boot Linux. I miss nothing about 500 line sysvinit bash files. Fight me.

Nothing kills the desire to refactor and improve an application’s architecture / scaling design like seeing that the app is DEPLOYED via 800 lines of terraform.

Small actions, even on tasks you'd rather avoid, make them easier to accomplish.

Flying out to Germany in a bit here. Can anyone refer me to any cool tech meetups / hacker spaces in either the /#Köln or areas?
