Just got a new writing contract going! Wooooo! My writing resume expandeth...
Some day I would love to write an article for 2600

The problem with using the new ATtiny chips from Microchip is none of my existing programmers support the new program/debug protocol! Why couldn't they just give a firmware update to the PICKIT 3... :( Now I need to buy some new hardware.

We need more *nix/electronics conventions here in Canada. Crossing the border is becoming more and more infeasible and risky. I certainly won't enter the US with the current policies allowing searching with no probable cause, especially of my laptop and cell phone.

Alright, I've learned my lesson (again)... Never use Ubuntu-based distros, no matter how cool they seem. GCC5 is old.

Trying out different Mastodon clients for Android and so far none really do it for me. Mammut has the nicest interface but lacks features. Subway Tooter is full featured but has a fairly ugly UI that's hard to use. Ivory looks like it will be good but it's in beta... any suggestions?

I haven't done 3D modelling in like a decade, but I'm playing around with FreeCAD to design an enclosure and it's slowly coming back to me :)

Doing some browsing on eBay for vintage cartridge games... found a seller in my country that has reasonable prices (for once!). Probably going to grab a few :D

Unlike the mainland China, the Hong Kong Police Force is allowed to purchase weapons and equipments from the United States manufacturers.

This means U.S.-based businesses are making money while HKPF assault the demonstrators using American weapons at the behest of Beijing.

Playing around with an emulated ZX81. There are so many vintage machines I want... but the prices are insane. It's definitely a very different experience from, say, Commodore machines. Having each key also be a keyword is a neat idea.

I think it is so freaking cool that SDF helps NetBSD with kernel development, as a (fairly hardcore) testing ground :D

Mammut for Mastodon seems to be the nicest Mastodon client for Android right now. I used Fedilab before, but they made it pay-only, which is odd as I had it installed and then it seems to have vanished. Oh well, Mammut has a nicer, cleaner interface anyway :)

Woo! Just sent in my donation for MetaARPA on @SDF ... moving up the ladder. It is SO worth it, you get access to sweet software like rsync ❤️ clang ❤️ git ❤️ ... plus access to the super secret meta array >.> I can't say any more about that. You also get SSL for your personal SDF domain... it's just freakin' awesome.
