Hey, I'm looking for someone to take over one of my jobs, so I can concentrate better on @interpeer.

You should...

- be EU based, NL-based a preference.
- know C/C++/Python
- know basics of network programming: sockets, endianness, datagram vs. stream, etc.
- know Linux networking/routing a bit.

The software runs on small ARM boards (ca. Raspberry Pi 1 power). You'll build and flash images, etc. You'll attach extension boards, and interface the software to firmware.

DM me/boosts appreciated.

InkBOOK seems to be e-reader done right. Comes with microG so no Google apps, installed f-droid in no time and followed that with koreader moving my configurations from tablet. Works perfectly with a good battery life.

Aaaand here it is:
projects.rys.io/ukrainvasion/

Changes in the #Wikipedia's map of #Russian invasion in #Ukraine often are very small and difficult to notice. So I made an interface where you can cycle through them easily.

It also lets you *compare* two different versions to clearly see differences.

A background script runs every 2h to fetch new versions of the map. The page refreshes hourly.

Also, it uses zero #JavaScript. None. Not a single line. It's all HTML and CSS.

Sometimes, there's a tool. And I'm talkin' about GNU sql here. Sometimes, there's a tool that fits right in there:

#!/usr/bin/sql -Y mysql:///
SELECT \* FROM foo;

and just like that... I was enlightened.
gnu.org/software/parallel/sql.

My uncle just finished 1.6 kg, 700 pages long dictionary of Northern Sami, a language spoken by around 20,000 speakers.

Sami are an indigenous people who have inhabited large parts of Northern Europe spanning from Russia to Norway for millenniums.

He has dedicated his life to advocate for their rights and preserve their languages and culture. This book is a major contribution in an effort to ensure that this ancient language will be passed on to future generations.

Now that Mozilla is doing wrong by their users again with ads in Firefox address bar. IceCat and small browsers like Nyxt become only choices. Can we somehow rollback Mozilla to the time when it was cool?

Was watching the 1938 Robin Hood and when a particular bit of sword fight happened, I realized I'd seen it a thousand times before in Prince of Persia! Rad!

My thoughts exactly on those recent space rides:
"As our world quite literally burns and crumbles around us, these men pushing the limits of the planet in their (unavoidably, symbolically phallic) rocket ships, simply because they can, is less inspiring than it is completely depressing."

I'm now looking for some good and books. Do you have any recommendations?

Just finished "The Zero Signal" by @rickwayne. It takes a minute to get used to Rick's style of writing, but he really paints a picture and puts you right there in the middle. With a hunger for more at the end. Highly recommend.

So go on, keep putting your data on even more internet connected company controlled devices...

"Western Digital, maker of the popular My Disk external hard drives, is recommending customers unplug My Book Live storage devices from the Internet until further notice while company engineers investigate unexplained compromises that have completely wiped data from devices around the world."

For years and years I used to have web browser window open all the time. Now I open Firefox or Nyxt only when needed.

Coming back to that Free Culture related question, my current best bet for finding new tunes is CCHits.net weekly podcast. If you haven't heard it before, please do! (: cchits.net/weekly

We went from the Turing Test, where a computer tries to convince a human that it is not a computer but a real person, to Captchas, where humans try to convince a computer they're a real person, not a computer.
