@mhoye I think the bigger issue at the moment is with counterfeit cards, doubly so given Amazon's practice of commingling inventory from multiple sources.
The sense I get right now is that pretty much anything you buy from a reputable brick and mortar store (or said store's website, like B&H) should be fine.
...though SanDisk sure seems to dominate the market.
I wrote a blog post on automatically deploying pelican blog with ansible & gitlab.
It feels like I'm one of quite a few people on fediverse used the holidays to organize their blogs.
App-ification gripes and opinions

fixed a walkman that was deemed a lost cause: belts were gone, yes, but also the motor wouldn't spin. after some poking around i figured out there was no stable power supply to the motor control ic. the main power switch that gets triggered by the transport switches was fine, and there was a trace making a direct connection, and it looks fine, no cracks, no oxidation. weird. i bridged the trace with a small wire and it works now. feels like black magic.
I signed up to to run Around the Bay 30K and Mississauga marathon this spring.
I made a running plan -- https://flamy.ca/blog/2020-01-01-my-training-plan-for-2020-marathon.html
Now I fully expect fulfill it it by making fediverse shame me into running more.
Over the holidays I moved my blog from github.io to self-hosted.
This mostly consisted of wrangling with pelican static site generator config and I wrote about it.
Und jetzt ist auch der zweite Schwung Fotos vom #36C3 online :)
in other news, DE ICE trains have an API, I now have a fish snippet that formats it for my status bar if it detects that I'm on an ICE train's WiFi~
A year ago, I remember how decentralization was hailed as some sort of panacea...
Today, I'm seeing instance block notifications, forks of masto to avoid EULA issues, and everything else I worried about. ><
I made this video on aligning this m42 to m4/3 adapter to lens aperture markings.
The adapter I bought came in misaligned so I thought this might be interesting for someone thinking of buying one.
