Pinned toot

has been going strong for nearly four months now.

And this last weekend we just had the biggest update yet - a brand new (to me) business-grade server machine!

It’s a major step toward making a long-lasting, authoritative Minecraft server for people throughout the federation instead of what was basically just a really, REALLY long LAN party.

If you play then respond or DM me and I can invite you into our community!

Much love. Many pixels. Wow :firedoge:

I love those little website pop-ups that are like "Sign up here to get X discount on Y" and then next to the close button it has some kind of smartass thing like "No, I want to waste my money/time/etc"

Nice try manipulating me, stupid human behind a website.

I just received my first email ever from a job recruiter. It looks like a legit company. I'm so excited!

Honestly, I'm not sure how to reply. Advice welcome.

I've gotta say... I love my @PINE64 .

I've hardly ever used KDE over the years but dang! Manjaro ARM does really well with it.

Battery life is great, a perk of using ARM64 over a normal amd64/x86 CPU.

I'll probably eventually want to get an upgrade from the current EMMC storage to an NVMe adapter.. but that's in the cards later.

I haven't patently enjoyed using a computer like that in a while. It's just a nice machine to have. 9/10.

i haven't been this tired this early in a long time.

maybe i listen to my tired meat-mech and sleep early?

Listened to Arcadia’s β€œElection Day” while I finished a prototype on Friday.

β€œI pull my shirt off and pray” is definitely a fitting lyric for running the debugger for the millionth time.

I’ve got homelab-level equipment now. That dual Xeon setup isn’t a small boi. Bout time I put it through it’s paces.

How do you like proxmox? I'm working on separating my different services (Nextcloud, , etc) into either separate VMs or separate Docker workers.

Right now it's Docker but I honestly think a good ole VM farm could be simpler in some ways.

Enlighten me oh fellow homelabber


1. Don't be a downer in replies for no good reason.

2. No unsolicited advice.

3. If someone says something nice to you, boost a post of theirs that you like.

4. If someone is rude/unhelpful/a downer in your replies, block-unblock them to get them off your follower list (or just block them if they don't follow you).

5. Use hashtags sometimes, and when you do, click on them and boost the good stuff to federate it about.

This week has been up down and all around, IT-wise. And now somehow today I’m working on making a PyQT front end for a specific workflow that pulls data out of SQL.

Impostor syndrome is a sinister beast but I feel very proud and accomplished at being able to collate all these disparate skills into a firm, specific deliverable.

I didn’t expect it to work so far, it’s just kinda happened.

Hang in there fellow impostors and losers and noobs. We’re smarter than we think.

Hey, fedi!

I'd like to write a blog/gemlog post about positive experiences from open source contributions. And by that I mean I want to hear your stories, and publish them as CC0 along with my own :)

Bring it on! (Boosts are of course welcome)

shipment for the EU is slightly delayed, but will start this week. All PinePhone and orders placed after April 18 will ship mid-May.

Details are in the shipping thread:
