Fine, here's my insightful take on manhood:

How to tell if you're a man: Does it make you happy to think of yourself as one? If you're not sure, try it out. Take as much time as you need. Much love to you on this journey.

How to be a man: Think of yourself as one. If you feel safe doing so, tell other people.

How to be a good man: Be a good person while thinking of yourself as a man.

Some people get "hangry" when they don't eat. Well I get "hexistentially depressed"

Retro computing programming language stuff 

A fun project I've done some thought on is a small JavaScript-like REPL for the Atari 800, like interacting with old BASIC or LOGO.

The 6502 CPU and its surrounding machine are very limited to modern eyes :) but I think it's possible to make a workable toy implementation.

RAM constraints are key, as is the lack of { curly braces } in the ATASCII character set. ;)

happy friday folks

you might have seen this phrase "T shaped developer" going around recently. i'm not sure how much stock i put into the theory, but on that note i propose the "U shaped developer" (of which i am a proponent).

This is glorious. These are rotary LTE cell phones, USB-C charged, with mechanical ringers.

The fediverse today trying to explain to newcomers where they are.

The "Moonshine Imperial Pils" is the result of a collaboration brew between the Buddelship Brewery, Hamburg and the Mashsee Brewery, Hannover.

The addition "Midnight Brew" reveals that this beer was created at night. It was brewed at the Union Brauerei (Brewery) in Bremen. So it is the best northern German beer collaboration.🍻

Although "Imperial" stands for a stronger hopping and a higher alcohol content, it it still tastes fruity with a sparkling drinkability.😋

I am old. I grew up in times of the real threats of the Cold War. Which is why I can somehow deal with the current situation. But I know that younger people are overwhelmed because they never experienced those times. I’m here to help. My DMs are open. Ask your questions.

It's sad that we ended up with "you need 5 different versions of the same image," but I'm glad this resource exists.

more shameless self promo

if you missed my talk this last weekend about testing at scale with cluster api and kubemark, you can catch the replay here, and you can also watch my demo catch fire (which is always amusing)

hey folks, doing a little shameless self-promotion.

i am giving a talk this weekend on testing at scale with cluster api and kubemark. it's part of devconf.cz which is a free conference that you can attend online.

thinking about crypto and NFTs, i'd like to rebrand this old quote:

A society grows lame when old men plant turds in whose discovery by the youth they know they shall never laugh.

Lotta buzz about the new radio images of the Galactic Center from MeerKAT from the South African Radio Astronomy Observatory. Honestly, looks metal AF.
