@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.

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

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 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.

PREORDERS LIVE! #pinebookpro Find the link here :) Excellent video, the series is pretty good too, but this is the best one of the bunch.

@anime You could redirect your other site to your Pleroma site perhaps... Or just set up a second one for it. Pleroma seems capable enough to serve as a full blog.

I went looking for 5" screens for a possible project with the Libre Computers board, and found this one that looks exactly like a PS Vita 1000 screen clone.

I think what building a FreeplayCM3 and CinnaMintyPi has taught me... Is I really don't like playing games on a sub-3" screen anymore. Maybe my next project should be finally repairing my wife's old broken Vita 1000 and putting all of the emulation software on it instead... Or maybe just use parts of it to make my own Pi3 based game system.

Was reading a post on one of my Patreon feeds admonishing everyone to get more angry about everything, against fascists, etc. Honestly, anger is what gives you fascists, and I find that if I encounter anyone who's raging at me, that their logic and rationale are usually quite lacking and they've just given themselves to mob rule, and thus I kind of instantly disregard their argument until it's rephrased calmly. We need more stability and sanity and less anger...
