Here's my favorite git feature that no one knows about:

You can reference commits using the commit message instead of the hash. The ":/" syntax accepts a regex that matches any part of the commit message, returning the youngest matching commit.

Framework’s Innovative Modular Laptop is Now Available to Pre-Order

Most of us consider an ‘upgradeable laptop’ to mean one that lets you add a stick of RAM or offer room for an extra SSD — but hardware startup Framework wants to reboot our expectations :sys_more_orange:

So the Raspberry Pi running my server appears to have shit the bed overnight. I sure wish I'd noticed that when I was still at home and not on the bus.

I have re-entered the world of blogs, by looking at my RSS reader again. I performed spring cleaning of old feeds, and would be happy to receive suggestions for blogs on: a) game design, b) networking (protocols, etc), c) cryptography.

There are probably quite a few other suggestions I'd check out, so don't feel restricted to these.

Boosts appreciated!

I can't be the only one who doesn't give a shit what the button says right?

Just stumbled across the Global Network of Discovery. AI-driven movie/music/book/product/etc suggestions with marginally less tracking maybe? You don't overtly make an account at least.

Everyone teased Joey, but remember that he was the only one who successfully hacked the Gibson by himself.

Rebooted my NAS for updates. Then spent a good couple of minutes trying to work out why my music stopped. Kicking goals this morning.

Spent a few hours getting the server running today (somehow totally killed Caddy in the process) before realising that it doesn't support push notifications yet :(


Finally put something up on my node at! It's just a web server hosting a static page wherein I ramble about not having anything hosted in thetubes but progress is progress!

If I've learned anything this last year, it's that we're not guaranteed anything and we should try to live out our dreams while we're alive to live them out. It is in that spirit that I reached out to a local college radio station (KPSU in Portland, Oregon) and proposed a new show; my proposal was accepted pending submission of a prerecorded pilot episode. The show is called Hack the Airwaves and I aim to explore various facets of hacker culture, hacker ethics, and the multitudes of kinds of hackers there are out there and the amazing projects they're working on.

Now that I've announced that here, I have a request for all the hackers out there (including and especially those who see hacking as much bigger than just infosec). I plan for my pilot episode to be called "What is a Hacker?" and for that, I need help. Contact me if you're interested in participating by sending me a ~1-7 minute recording of what being a hacker means to you.

Aardwolf-social, Docker help 

If anyone in my fedisphere has knowledge, time, and energy to help with building #Docker images for the #AardwolfSocial project (the facebook alternative thing). I would super-duper appreciate that :)

Still trying to struggle my way through the training, but I'm hoping that having Docker images will encourage others in the community to pitch in.

So it looks like my internet went down, then when it came back up the OG raspberry pi model B which handles my dynamic DNS locked up and crashed so my IP changed and my domains didn't update.

Show thread

Well the plan WAS to dick around with a dockerfile on my way home but all my services running at home appear to be down for some reason :(

So I've been using my bus ride to/from work each day to build a little competitive platformer. The general gist is capture the flag only you need to capture multiple flags and they're in the middle. As extra challenge I'm also doing all the art and sound. As sad as the run animation makes me I'm quite enjoying the process!
