Looks like I should be getting my Pinebook Pro sometime soon. Still waiting on word from DHL though.

@Stainless Leftists do not have a fixation on any kind of guns. They just want to slice gun owners like a salami and ban each slice in turn until nothing is left.. That is why they invented the "assault gun": it's a meaningless classification designed to facilitate bans. Once "assault guns" are banned, they come to ban everything else: guns that have too many rounds in their magazines, guns that are too powerful, guns that are concealable, and so on and so forth until so few guns remain, and they are so useless, that it is feasible to ban them altogether. No leftist actually cares about crime rate, the crime rate does not get into this calculation at all.

This is the PineTime. A companion for your Linux smartphone, and new side-project of ours. More news coming in the future...

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.

A modest proposal: allow all Hongkongers to immigrate to London.

Well, Bitbucket is dropping Mercurial support. This means that it's basically no better than me setting up my own Gitlabs server. I should probably do that and just move all my own personal projects to it.

“There are many Hong Kongers and other smart people writing online who can explain the political context of the protests, the likelihood of intervention, and what this means in a deeper way. I am just a visitor who perhaps thinks too much about fish cakes when being tear gassed.”


Of course Maciej Cegłowski went to #HongKong protests and wrote a brilliant piece, with references to how the ’80s Soviet–American culture shock is as great as the 2010s America–HK one.

This is QWERPLINE, S02E01. It’s an audio show I make with LoadingReadyRun that I am very proud of.

Raspberry Pita project, lesson learned #1: The Pi3A+ gpio header is a nightmare to desolder, and if you do manage to desolder it, you'll probably also desolder components you don't want to and fry the board. Instead of plugging the button board into the back of the Pi, figure out how to redesign it so the button board plugs into the front of the Pi. This means the board will need many, many more slots cut in it so the various jacks can be accessible. Bonus, SD card should be accessible now.

I've double checked this against my own board with a multimeter, and mouser.com/pdfDocs/SipeedMaixd the pinout on this one is correct, and the old one I had is probably wrong. Time to start connecting up the SPI pins using the FPIOA commands.
