Something odd is happening on my @fosstodon UI. :D I'm not even doing anything. Stopped after refreshing the page.

ExSpeedGame (running on a Raspberry Pi Zero W with ) now has a score display powered by Phoenix LiveView: :)

Interesting effect with and : I have a source PNG that is 2096 x 1536. When I resize it to 1280 x 938 with Preview, the filesize drops from 736K to 726K. But pngcrushed the original is 493K and resized is 534K! Same with cwebp: 204K vs 364K.

So my web service, my personal blog, and a couple of other benign sites all got banned in China today. No idea why, and nothing I can do. Sucks for the Chinese users. :/

The DREAM… -- I still dream that one day I'll find one in a flea market marked "Some old keyboard 10 €"

I wrote about my TypeScript no-NPM setup that I have used in a few frontend projects:

Finished proto hardware for my little game. Now I can finally get to programming it!

My home office when remoting due to . At least the dog is enjoying that I'm home all day, set up a bed for him next to me.

Clicky clicky. Working on a reaction game with Elixir and Nerves (runs on a Raspberry Pi Zero W). Input debouncing works, tonight's aim is to get LEDs lighted.

Bought an BP125N player at flea market, updated to firmware LG_BD_7300M51.ROM, and it no longer boots at all, stuck in LG logo. Any ideas anyone? Holding power button won't reset it.

I don't have a working video editor so I cut videos with ffmpeg -ss and -to switches and then "ffmpeg -f concat -i script.txt -c copy movie.mp4". It's painful though, please suggest something worthwhile. :D I used to use iMovie but it is now refusing to export anything in higher quality than 720p.

Got a free phone from a friend and used it to make a dashcam of sorts for my bicycle. Uses OpenCamera from F-Droid for recording, works well! Maybe when the warranty is over, I can power it directly from the bike battery, but not yet. :D

Just switched around the cases of my 's. Really easy operation, it's designed for user serviceability and has guides for disassembly on the website. Made me think all products should be like this. How many things could be fixed by the end user and not end up at the landfill if there only were proper instructions available!
