[20:46] Brickset deciphered the signs and letters of Ninjago. The one thing I miss is a character map.
[23:32] Tinkering a little with gmb again. New entries now feature a meta tag adressing the viewport, so the blog will appear more readable on mobile devices.
I used sed to refit the older entries, too.
[21:00] Lego phone, printer and keyboard. I actually had my fingers on one of those phones quite a few years ago, my dad used to have one or two of these. I wonder if he still has them stored somewhere. Got to ask next time I'm visiting my parents.
[18:40] These sneakers come with a built-in display. Funny idea. But I fear the next step (no pun intended) will be speakers, so that annoying ads can be played everywhere. Based on locations and events, probably. Yuck.
[19:29] I'm a keyboard person. I do believe that I work faster this way, even though I don't have proof. Dan Luu tried to find out wether or not the keyboard is faster than the mouse. "The results are mixed."
[00:28] I've put quite a lot of work into this blog by now, it has been running for over two years and it would be a pity to lose this collection of links. To keep a local backup, I'll
tar the blog directory every now and then, so I can download it:
$ tar -zcvf blog.tar.gz ~/public_html/gmb/
[00:17] Does anyone have data on the cost of running a tilde server? I did find some info about tilde.town and perispomeni.club, but I'd really like to know more. All, if possible. I plan to work on The Swintons of Tildeverse again, currently starting a chapter about funding (which is currently way to short to even call it a draft).
And while we're at gathering intel: any clues which operating systems, web servers are used? Where the servers are hosted? Tell me, please.
[20:19] Seems like someone from China had a particular interest in perispomeni.club earlier this year. (via)
[17:35] I can't wait for self-driving automobiles to be ready for the market and become mandatory. Mainly because this would gradually remove antisocial egotistical assholes from road traffic.
