Much to my surprise, Lite managed to compile (and run!) on my Alpine Linux system without any issues.


Everything rxi seems to do comes in a thoughtfully distilled package. Really elegant stuff.

I'm going to implement HaldCLUT in Kotlin aren't I... another itch that needs scratching.

Working until 10.30 on a bank holiday weekend - not cool, even in lockdown. Client came back with an issue last thing, rather than worry until Tuesday I pulled a late one - better that than stress.

Another project moved to @codeberg : DitherKt - old-school error diffusion filters ported to Kotlin: codeberg.org/oppen/DitherKt

I found that having a phone without google apps is in fact a blessing. If it doesn't run in f-droid you likely don't need it. Few exceptions.

You'll notice your phone has a lot less functionality. Still works as a phone, camera, music player tho.

You wind up using doing a lot less on your phone, and that is a good thing.

Managed to get /e/ looking a little nicer with Trebuchet launcher. Open Camera was too slow so replaced with Simple Camera. Simple Dialler for calls too.

As part of my strategy I've been looking at a replacement for Google Photos, which has led me down the rabbit-hole of raw image processing.

Years ago I did some research on trilateration using BLE beacons. I found that room shape, furniture, presence of other bodies, all made it next to impossible to accurately position a person (at least given the time I had). Getting an accurate distance without trilateration is impossible, even with smoothing the data is too variable. Also, if there's a person between you and someone infected, it'll look like they're much much further away, the human body reduces the BLE signal strength.
