Observations from a chair at Starbucks: When I raise a cup of coffee with a lid to my mouth I snake out my tongue in a little blep to feel for the lid hole. I don't look at the lid.

The new raspberry pi 4 looks dead sexy. If I weren't in transit I'd buy one now. Home servers are going to be a breeze!

tomasino boosted

Surprise, surprise, Raspberry Pi 4 has been launched!

Faster CPU, dual 4k HDMI support, up to 4GB RAM, USB type C, USB3 and (finally!) no more bottlenecking the ethernet port over USB2: full gigabit speeds!

Also: same old price 😍

Reading through Susannah Heschel's Aryan Jesus- it's about the efforts of Nazis to Nazify the Protestant church in the Third Reich.

This topic is, to date, the hardest thing I've ever studied, in terms of personal horror of the subject.

@solderpunk hey... so i'm playing around in python3 with a basic service wrapper for my initial port listener. Mind having a look and seeing if anything seems drastically out of the norm so far? It's mostly just a combo of googled code so far.

So that DNS not working in Firefox while on VPN thing turns out to be a bigger issue than just the hotel. I'm at my parents' place and it was doing the same on their network.

“Without Any Warrants, CBP Searched My Devices at the Airport” theintercept.com/2019/06/22/cb CBP loves this. They are specifically hired because they get their jollies from this sort of power tripping. They are vindictive by their nature and do not care.

Now that some crazy individual has stood up gemini://gemini.conman.org, I had an unexpected urgent need for a Gemini client. So, I hastily converted VF-1 from gopher to Gemini and have named the result AV-98 (after the AV-98 Ingram, patlabor.fandom.com/wiki/AV-98, Patlabor > Macross, fight me). You can find it at tildegit.org/solderpunk/AV-98. Not everything works 100%, but it's good enough for simple testing. @gcupc, NOW things are moving fast!

This hotel lobby is playing Fox News and it is straight disgusting. It's shameful propaganda without even a facade of journalism.

@HerraBRE are pool memberships in Reykjavik valid for the whole area or to a specific pool?
