@ajroach42 i only know Commando Cody from the Mystery Science Theatre 3000 bits, but this action figure is very cool. congrats!

@ruivieira i always thought the question was "is Perl 6 alive or dead?"

XD

@chris +100 about not needing to bring the "shoebox".
i've been using linux for all my daily drivers, but i'm a little lucky in that my work mostly centers around cloud-based linux stuff XD

@chris back before the pandemic, i spent a lot of time trying to optimize my tech for travel. i think the best success i ever had was when i moved to a pure "cloud" approach to my assets and started bringing a cheap laptop with me.
it took me a few trips to adjust, but i become much happier and reduced my stress by not carrying a bunch of devices that were expensive or contained sensitive data.
i realize this approach doesn't work for everyone, but it helped me.

there are some cool things happening in the kubernetes cluster api community, we have recently pushed forward to support a kubemark provider to help with testing cluster lifecycle components.

i wrote up some of my thoughts and a description of my devel environment:

Today I received the tragic news that Jörg Schilling, famous for #cdrtools, #star and other projects, has passed away. Regardless of all the flamewars we had over licensing in the past, Jörg was a giant to me. May he find peace. Thank you, Jörg, for all you did.

watching a cool code walkthrough for the Kubernetes Cluster API project, kudos to the community for creating such a nice video:

is there a difference between a /deepest darkest secret/ and a /deepest dankest secret/ ?

completed my first project \o/

been learning the framework for a couple months now, and i gotta say i've accomplished more during those months than i have during the entire last year when i was hacking away on my own engines/games.

mad props and love to the godot team! <3

it's a very simple game, based off r/p/s, but i wanted something i could finish and didn't have to create too many rules. GPLv3 code and using CC licensed art/fonts.

The Thumble is done!

A DIY midi controller made from microcontroller, keyboard switches, & laser cut plywood. open hardware, GPL firmware.

I added build photos and a Lessons Learned section at the end. This is surprisingly different to play than my previous instrument, the Waffletone - dancing thumbs instead of stationary fingers make a big difference. Next time I'll use flatter stiffer keys and spread them out a bit more.

in the matrix, we see a shot of neo's passport which says that it expires on 11 september 2001. it also says neo is a resident of 'capital city', suggesting the matrix and the simpsons take place in the same universe

Your important reminder of the day:
