I will blog about it at some point, I promise.

Thought this needs an update.
I'm mostly tinkering with 3D printers, raspberry Pi and electronics. Python programmer by day and sometimes by night too.
I'm into Debian and linux in general, and make videos for @gtalug.
I also like running and cycling.
I'm posting about my side projects but also retoot things I find interesting.
KDE’s Plasma Mobile Is Shaping Nicely on the PinePhone
I accidentally enabled Google ambient and it is the worst.
It keeps the screen on when the phone is charging with no accounting of its a LED or OLED scree, while google assistant attempts to listen to everything.
This thing is really disruptive as I keep my phone in quiet mode next to my bed at night.
To disable this, go under google assistant settings (of all of the place) -> devices -> Google Assistant -> Ambient mode. Disabling assistant as a whole is also cool.
Also darktable likes to convert file names that I use for reference everywhere to its own 'number in the collection' instead.
This is a very nice tool and I'm sure all of the things are configurable, it's just I want to edit a few images to do a particular thing instead of learning how everything in darktable works.
I love #darktable but the UI is not consistent with anything I know, and kind of cryptic.
There seem to be no help available within the app, F1 gives photo a 1-star rating, pressing question mark redirects to a website with no obvious help section and mashing random buttons doesn't help either.
HAPPY CYRIL AND METHODIUS DAY!
What are you doing for it? Reading a book, learning a language, chatting to a friend abroad? Let us know!

Apparently I only now found out about Metronomy.
The song speaks to me and te music video is from 2011.
Yeah I feel old.
EZCAP28X HDMI capture with mic-in connection
Connected to RODE vodemicro on a hotshoe adapter to 1/4-20 screw tripod.
This contraption works -- capture device provides enough voltage for the microphone. I can use it as audience microphone/b-cam.
* capture device max out at 50Hz refresh rate and the screen really likes 60Hz. But for capturing desktop I don't really see a difference.
* I hear some clicks on the video, not sure where are they coming from
Why do people use URL shorteners? Pretty much every app makes them clickable so it's not like you need to remember them and most social media apps concatenate them so they don't clutter up your screen. The only other use I see is for tracking and, if you need to see how many people are clicking your links, you're doing something wrong.
There is the argument for cHaRaCtEr LiMiTs but just write text at the top. You don't need a paragraph summary of an article when the title sums it up well enough. That's not a reason to use a shortener and obfuscate the destination
Python programmer, runner, likes 3D printers and making short videos.
