if you are looking for something tech related to watch this saturday, the OKD community is hosting a free installation and testing workshop. OKD is the community edition of OpenShift, built on top of Fedora CoreOS. i will have a very small part to play in the day, but it should be fun for all (for a value of fun that includes an interest in distributed systems XD).

#TIL The Art of Digital Design by David Winkel and Franklin Prosser. If you read and follow the book to the end, you'll have a PDP-8 computer. #retrocomputing #electronics

something that has fascinated me recently is the notion of software development as a lens into absurdist art. i'm still condensing my thoughts, but i've created my first project in my new absurdism phase XD

I'm really surprised no one in the late 20th century made a DOS distribution called ZarDOS, with Sean Connery's Zed as the logo.

@mikew i love Pixel Monster Bot, thank you for sharing it!

i do have a couple questions

2. what is the license on the images created? (eg are we allowed to re-use/remix the monsters)

There is a computer disease that anybody who works with computers knows about. It's a very serious disease and it interferes completely with the work. The trouble with computers is that you 'play' with them!

— Richard P. Feynman

A lot of online bios (I think I did this also, at some point) follow the cliché non sequitur: A, A, B; with A being a high-level endeavour or noble pursuit and B a, seemingly at odds, interest that supposedly provides a comic effect due to implicitly being as important to the person as A. For instance:

- Philosophy, Quantum mechanics, cooking
- Literature, human rights, cycling
- Cancer research, digital freedom, pokemon

Good morning.

There's plenty of anxiety to go around for USians, particularly today, and us USians have a tendency to make our anxieties the anxieties of the world.

Don't feel like you need to watch the spectacle. Don't feel like you're required to do some sort of penance by staying glued to the current events feeds all around you.

Have a snack. Play a game. Listen to your favorite songs. Smoke a bowl. Nap.

You and yours are more important than the spectacle.

Self care is civil defense.
