@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.

@PINE64 That's cool. I especially like the multiday battery life. I still use my Pebble Time Steel watch because of the near week-long battery life of the thing.

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

(If you have experience with FreeRTOS or mbed, and are interested, please get in touch!)

@lunduke Reminds me of this card game. northstargames.com/products/du You say dude in the right way, and when you recognize that someone else is saying it in the same way you show them your card, if it matches you say "Sweet" and get a point. :)

@deshipu I imagine if you live in a place where roads are uncommon but swamps and rivers are common, you'd see an inversion of the Car vs Boat scale.

@deshipu TVs are very cheap now, computers are very cheap now, and both of them are in common use. Cars are very useful for work and a lot of people have them. Pianos however require a lot of big moving parts and are still quite expensive to manufacture, maintain, and move, while you can use a electronic organ instead that's cheap and easy. Boats are quite expensive to maintain even though they can be purchased on a normal person's salary like a car, but have fewer uses for the average person.

@burek If you want to make managing ports easier, check out the "synth" port.

#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.

@pro At this point, I've used both Flask and Django, and I like them both pretty well.

@moonman A portion of them could already move to London, unfortunately there's a cutoff date so anyone younger than a certain age can't. :( The US, Taiwan, Australia, or any number of other countries would benefit from taking them in, but I'm not sure if they'd want the downgrade in quality of life from going most of those places.

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.

If you like morning radio shows in fictional small-towns, you might like this.


@avia Putting your name in like that might help with the problem of them thinking it's different accounts. You'll have to let me know if you get anyone who still messes it up.

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.
