My Light Phone II showed up and I love it so much. E-ink dumb phone + WiFi hotspot. What more could you want‽

Here's a little video from the Christmas Tree lighting in Reykjavík this year. The tree has been an annual gift from Norway since 1951, demonstrating the friendship between the countries.

See what IP addresses the person in Starbucks is visiting *over their VPN*:

Sleep easily tonight!

The screentime on my son's tablet ran out. Rather than stop and move on to something else he found an app that wasn't limited by screen time: the sound recorder.

He's been doing these for the last hour. The latest creation, "Godzilla in Cat Language".

In the meantime, working on cache invalidation for #Samizdat. One of the Two Hard Problems in IT (cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors)!

Anyway, trying to keep some context in cache using "x-samizdat-*" headers. But the Cache API doesn't seem to cache all headers, just some:

Of course, there is no mention of it anywhere in the docs (or I have not found it after hours of looking).

Dear friends,

Quick reminder: if you're running an accessibility meet-up or local community, we’d love to send some of new books over to you — anywhere in the world.

Also, if you could write a review of the book, we’d love to send a book over, too.

DMs are open. 🥳

I just completed "The Tyranny of the Rocket Equation" - Day 1 - Advent of Code 2019

Getting a late start, but playing catchup.

Oh btw, about a month ago we handled ~200k visits in a day, ~12 pageviews per second, ~1Gbps bandwidth, on a WordPress site on our infrastructure... without breaking a sweat.

How? Years of polishing our front-end caching reverse-proxy config. Is it #FLOSS? Of course it is:

Also, thanks and kudos to #Greenhost for hosting our edge nodes.

Point is: no, you don't need #CloudFlare.

Is there any windup vinyl players made now?

As in same as in the past, but with improved acoustic or something

Ok, back to playing with #Samizdat after some traveling.

- caching plugin not double-counted anymore;
- finally there is a proper project website at

Need to fix Gun+IPFS for the new domain, today is a good time.

Main project home still for the time being, but hoping to move it to a public GitLab instance soon.

I wonder what the fediverse has to say on . It looks like a very solid distro with great valid hype around it. What's your opinion?

So, how do I follow another user on another instance on pixelfed from my pixelfed account? I see how to follow with Mastodon, but not pixelfed

I am trying to move #Samizdat off of my work infrastructure and onto a public #GitLab instance, so that it's easier to cooperate.

I went with, but there seems to be a problem with CI/CD pipelines:

In case they consciously disable CI/CD on 0xacab, what other open GitLab instances should I consider?

I use Instagram a lot. I like sharing pictures with people. Pixelfed is the logical federated place for me to move to. I have an account at but I'm not using it yet. Is planning on starting an instance? perhaps? I'm wondering if there's a more logical home instance before I begin.

Where are you all? I need accounts to follow wherever I land.

For Thanksgiving I want to give you all the gift of the freakishly handsome young Patrick Stewart! Seriously... Look at this man!
