Rediscovering #infrared #photography. It's been a few years, but a friend of a friend offered a converted camera for next to nothing, so I couldn't say no.

Boosts appreciated.
I'm close to moving back to Windows. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to hold oneself back, deny oneself better and easier accessibility in the name of open source, when many open source developers don't give a crap about accessibility, and/or don't educate themselves on it. KDE connect, GSConnect, all were inaccessible for one reason or another, not the least because of Gnome-shell's terrible accessibility issues. That was just the last straw. With the only thing holding me to Linux being Emacs+Emacspeak, I think its time to quit Linux and just use what actually works. It's interesting how being "free" just means being under the power and whim of other people, a mass of developers who have no insentive for accessibility, rather than a cohesive company who does. This is serious, and I want every developer to understand this, understand my deep frustration with FOSS.

Everyone who works with computers intently are really confused as to why other people want to put computers in everything

This is your timely reminder that if you jump from #OpenBSD snapshot to snapshot (doas sysupgrade -s) you need to add -Dsnap to your pkg_add -u afterwards these days. New #release will drop soon.

The heart stopping moment when you look inside some lynchpin function everything depends on and see

nothing like it

Following an excellent recipe from an extremely enthusiastic Italian, wholeheartedly recommended

tired: evaluating a fn on a nice grid and using that grid to render the 3d mesh

wired: evaluating a fn on a nice grid then wasting ten minutes computing delaunay triangles so you don't have to move files around

6.9 is nearly out - if you run the snapshots, time to get testing! Looking forward to the improved networking stack πŸš€

Today's net physics result: minus 4 notebook pages. However, I got to use my pretty new Japanese ink, so I'll call it a wash

tempted to just text this to everybody I know it's legitimately life-changing

Excellent tip I'm currently indulging in - once you've assembled your () burger, wrap it in foil and stick it in the oven with the chips for 5 minutes. Makes things approximately 15x more indulgent

"Alpha Male", the early version of a male, before testing and bug fixes. Unstable and not suitable for the public.
