Letting that karma roll in from getting TWM to the front page of orange site briefly.

This diagram on the Berkeley Mono website is my spirit animal.

I have absolutely no regrets paying actual $ for typefaces. Berkeley Mono is an amazing terminal font and can't wait to see how Houston Mono turns out,

I have reached the stage in my life where I wish my double-shot ABS keycaps were more "shiny". Guess I'll just have to wait a few years of constant daily use and 🤞 it happens naturally.

Finally put my finger on why I am brand loyal to Noctua for system cooling solutions. RGB and "gaming" isn't in their vocabulary.

Ahhh that's the stuff.

Playing Planetfall in one terminal, and reading a walkthrough on gopher in another.

Here are 3 reasons why I only really buy RaspberryPi SBCs.

The Inforce IFC6540 and IFC6410 were commercially available 2015/2016. They run either Android 4.4 "KitKat" Ubuntu with a highly customized Linux kernel and all boot off eMMC. In 2023 they are basically useless due to the inability to upgrade the OS.

Disappointing since the Snapdragon 600 and 800 are still usable chips, and the IFC6540 even has a proper SATA port.

Compared to a RaspberryPi Model B from 2012 which can still boot a modern OS from a swappable SD card.
