Pinned toot

Just found a whole batch of Hackers.town people languishing in my Follow queue.

Locals should drop me a line when following so I can approve. Not currently accepting outside follows.

Pinned toot

? But I never did ...

I'm a weird guy who decided to base his profile on the movie Sneakers. I love technology, probably more than is healthy. My interests tend to revolve in a cycle but in the spirit of hackers.town I try to keep it to infosec and general internet nerdery.

I live with a migraine 24/7 so don't be surprised to see the occasional related toot.

Fun STA Fact #4 (collect them all!): A Canadian goose once attempted to carjack me.

Read some stuff. Faved a few things. Spoons depleted.

Haven't forgotten about the town.

is a game about trains that also has factories in it.

Random theory: the whole episode was created around the premise that a script needed to be written containing the phrase "badger badger badger"

I have the sudden urge to check Pwned Passwords and see if `Badger85` is on the list.

Bonus points to anyone who gets the reference.

Thinking about how all the various tech/resource collection games are just turning real world resources into virtual.

Ultimately it all started out as power and time before being converted to CPU cycles and bits in RAM.

Glad this thought isn't sucking the enjoyment out of it. But at the same time, I'm a little more conscious that this massive virtual factory has a real world impact.

Trying out one of those vertical/sideways mice. It's supposed to be a more natural position for your hand than a typical mouse. Not sure this cheap one I got is doing me any favors though.

Wynonna Judd - No One Else On Earth

No one else on earth could ever hurt me
Break my heart the way you do
No one else on earth was ever worth it
No one can love me like
No one can love me like you

It sounds like there is an unhappy switch-mode power supply somewhere on the other side of the room, but I haven't been able to narrow it down yet.

Irritating.

Biohackers Use a Raspberry Pi to Implant a Networked Hard Drive

> "Biohackers took one small but important step toward the science fiction dystopia depicted in William Gibson's Johnny Mnemonic," reports The Parallax

Lets be realistic. When have things like "responsibility" and "that's a bad idea" stopped me from doing things before?

So restless.

Want to go out for lunch. Just not sure it's a good idea.

Spent about 10 minutes straightening up the lab (the bench top has turned into piles and piles of stuff). Then my head said "Nope. No more."

Back to being stuck in a chair. *sigh*

It's nice when I can build on a half-finished project and do something useful with it.

At some point way back I had hooked up a Pi Zero W such that I could use it for media, with the idea of playing music from the console with .... whatever that console player for YouTube is. But I was having trouble with the last little bit and it kind of got abandoned.

Today I mounted my music share to it via SSHFS and fired up CMUS (console based music player) and with minimal effort I can listen to my collection. Not the original plan, but something useful _and_ I didn't have to spend a day wrestling with some issue or other. Some lazy fool already did the hard work and then wandered off...

Foreigner - I Want To Know What Love Is

youtube.com/watch?v=raNGeq3_Dt

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I feel like as someone who wants the UI to work for me, and not to have to work for the UI, that I am in the minority. At the very least, the people who write software don't seem to think this way.

Anyone else play ?

A friend got me into it and I've been having fun so far. I'm in the "Untangle the belts" phase. Such a mess. And the giant mountain of hardened resin is threatening to overtake the sky. Probably ought to do something about that soon...
