The Golang tutorial never ceases to make me feel stupid. The difficulty curve just feels way off for me, like
• Lesson 1 - What is a keyboard
• Lesson 2 - Saving a file in your editor
• Lesson 3 - Running "hello, world"
• Lesson 4 - Massively parallelized asymmetrical quantum computing across 17 star systems
🎉 It is time! #Mastodon 3.2.0 is here! What's in it? Have a look:
Better news: the latest one has the most adorable single board microcontroller platform I've ever seen. I intentionally didn't look at the docs before powering it up, as Adafruit always ships with fun demo apps.
I actually laughed out loud a couple of times while playing with it! I handed it to my partner and at one point she shrieked in delight.
This thing is fantastic!

I've been trying to build a Raspberry Pi K8s cluster with the 6 Pis I had lying around.
First my SD cards were crap, so I ordered new ones. Then I needed a way to power them, so I got a USB power station.
Then I didn't have convenient networking, so in came a switch and 6 new etherrnet cables.
Finally I decided that the Pi 3s were just not up to the task, so I got 6 new Pi 4s (4GB). Now the only original bit left was the microUSB cables for power.
I got the Pi 4s today and... they're USB C 💩
After months of wincing every time I open a jar or turn a doorknob, I broke down and got an Ultimate Hacking Keyboard so that I could set up a split keyboard with angled-out tenting.
So far it's mostly just showing me all the places that I use the wrong fingers when typing, but the build quality is great.
I'm most surprised by the fact that the mouse emulation is actually decent! I didn't expect it to be really usable but I'm finding myself not grabbing the mouse as often.
I used the neural net GPT-2 to generate some April Fools pranks.
conveniently they're all pranks you play on yourself. or possibly solo performance art.
