Pinned toot

Hello!

I've joined this instance because I'm an ARPA member on the SDF. I also keep a few back-up identities on other instances too.

I'm curious about gopher, Mastodon, OSS, Linux, Emacs, Org-mode,
tabletop RPGs, philosophy, history, and programming. I'm known to
fiddle with Python on occasion.

If you want to chat, ping me!

I managed to pull something in the left half of my chest while sitting at my desk today. 0_o

Anyone aware of any fun little projects I could do in common or to learn the language better?

Absolutely knackered now but I murdered my TODO list today.

Made to the end of today. I need to go lie down now.

With a reach of nearly 6 feet, InSight's robotic-arm is ready to do some lifting. In addition to capturing photographs of the terrain, the arm will be used to pick up science instruments, and gently place them on the Martian soil at Elysium Planitia.

Cray-1B, serial number 1, rebuilt for the recent SC18 conference.

The machine was on loan from the Chippewa Computer Museum. Originally installed at Los Alamos but returned to Cray: "When Serial 1 showed up in Los Alamos in 1976 it wouldn’t run for more than a few minutes yet it would run for hours in Minnesota. Turns out there was no memory protection and cosmic events at Los Alamos altitude were different enough from Minnesota."

Hello new #Mastodon folks! 🐘

Have you heard of the #Fediverse? πŸ—ΊοΈ

It's a set of community projects that use the #ActivityPub standard to talk to each other.

Mastodon is the most well developed, but there are many works in progress too:

I ran 6.21 km in 46 minutes, according to the treadmill. Google Fit thinks that I ran 7.23 km. Silly Google and their closed apps.

Ran 6.07 km in 45 minutes on the treadmill. Google Fit thinks I ran 6.84 km. I wish I could calibrate it but it's a black box so I get inaccurate measurements.

Saturday night tidying! Yep, I'm living the high life!
