I'm still astounded, in 2021, that, back in the early 1980s, you could PRINT pages from Teletext OUT of your TV.

re: instacart, union busting 

I'm seeing reports that you cannot cancel instacart from your account settings but that you definitely can via their live chat support.

make sure you tell their trashy asses exactly why you're cancelling (without shitting directly on the customer service rep).

Shoutouts to the tech companies and VCs taking their courageous, principled stands at precisely the moment that it's too late for courage or principles to matter.

It's Miyazaki's 80th birthday and because he loves us and wants us to be happy, Ghibli just release almost 2,000 hi-res images from their films for reasonable use. So get on that.

#OpenSCAD debugging tip. I wrote a small helper function which creates 3 cones among each axis, in different colors. Anytime I'm lost (mostly because of rotations) I just call this function, and use it as a reference for everything what's below.

Yes, twitter is bad, obviously, but also, DHH tweets about Foucault? mmmm

I updated my mail config for SPF, DKIM and DMARC using this article.

There's a very clear explanation of the set up process as well as testing the configuration. Highly recommend.

It's my dream to make weird internet art, silly indie games, and educational tools and resources full-time!

If you decided to support my independence in doing that, it would mean the world to me! <3 patreon.com/blinry

I feel like I'm about 10 years behind on this technology, but my first 3D printer arrived today, a Prusa Mini! :) Here's a thread with a few observations while I assemble it and try it out!

covid humor 

I’m told that many Germans are stockpiling cheese and sausages in anticipation of a COVID lockdown — planning, in other words, for a Wurst-Käse scenario

(not mine. copypasta from un-CWed toot)

Pretty hyped that I get to use Kdenlive for my day job. It really is a professional application.

I've been radicalized by video games, specifically City Skylines.

Just looked at some projects on Github and saw that the site no longer advertises a standard git command to copy for repo cloning. Now they encourage the use of 'Github CLI' with the syntax of 'gh repo clone'.

No doubt it's a wrapper around git that will slowly gain features that git won't add because there is no need for them.

They are no longer a 'git hub', they are a 'repo space'.

All leading to the classic, Embrace, Extend, Extinguish.
