I built a tool for my wife to help her generate crochet patterns.
Choose the number of rows and columns you want and the number of colors to extract from the image used to generate the pattern. Upload the image and transform it by resizing, moving, or rotating to get everything where you want it. Click "render" and it will flatten everything into your grid.
When it's done you can right-click and "save as..." to save the image for crochet reference.

So, uh, I think Catalina 10.15.4 Broke SSH? https://feed.tyler.io/so-uh-i-think-catalina-10154-broke-ssh/
So here's something for you all. I've been having really bad tightness in my chest today. It's all the shortness of breath stuff from what is maybe covid (TBD tomorrow, hopefully).
Tonight I sought to remedy that a bit by giving my lungs some exercise. I broke out the shakuhachi and did some free-form exercises. Here's where I started tonight:
And after 10 more minutes of practice and diaphram exercises I was able to get it up to this:
I made a quick video about ssh-agent, ssh key management, and my personal solution that uses LastPass to manage my SSH key passwords.
Also, shoutout to @mwlucas at the end for having ACTUAL knowledge on the subject and the definitive book.
Anyone have "learn to juggle" on their to-do list for this next month or so? I've been honestly wondering whether having a video call over a platform like jitsi would be any more helpful than just watching any of the many video tutorials out there, and would love to have a few test cases to find out! So I'm offering one on one instruction to the lovely people out here on the fediverse. Just let me know and we'll set up a time!
Here are some online free and open source software tools you can use to connect to eachother.
https://jitsi.org/ – video conferencing (www.vc4all.nl if you don’t run your own server yet)
https://www.mumble.com/ – voice chat
https://mattermost.com/ – team work (or sociocratic circles)
https://joinmastodon.org/ - social media
https://www.discourse.org/ - discussion platform
Running your own server(s) is more secure (for example for yorganizing your community).
@RaeYcrep your charcoal works need to practice social distancing
Since I am now using better data source, I can do additional things. So you can now choose between a chart of confirmed cases, recoveries, or deaths:
All other controls work with either of these, of course.
This is becoming quite a flexible tool, if I may be so bold to say.
On @smarimc's suggestion, I added a rolling average configuration for new cases mode:
(note: the configuration UI only shows up when "Cases: new" is selected)
Not entirely certain of my code though, so it would be good if anyone could do a reality check on it:
Have you been eager to try out git? Is it a little bit intimidating? Well now you have your friendly neighborhood tomasino to help!

or if you hate freedom, on Youtube:
PS: Next time I'll figure out how to fix my gain and not be super quite. Promise! 😜
The software industry has engendered a culture of distracted programmers using bad tools to solve problems they don’t have time to fully understand. In this essay, I try to explore why. https://medium.com/@smarimc/when-programming-became-a-chore-a0be2b9919c0
