Still # #. These are now our main source of fresh veg while we're in lockdown. We still have plenty of preserved and frozen veg. We had a soil contamination incident on # so we're sticking to microgreens for now till we can get new soil.

I find that when growing them at an angle, water is more likely to pool at the rim of the jar. I prefer to grow them vertically

that is a very clean setup as well.

I redesigned my portflio at www.matussolcany.com it's built with Gohugo. The portfolio works without javascript and is 140mb heavy. About 100mb of the size are 4 videos in 3 different formats, the rest are ~70 compressed images, 100kb of a custom font, 50kb of css and about 8kb of js.

The next step is to finish developing a wiki and some initial content for it

you probably don't need tachyons library for this since the design is so simple :)
matsol mastodon (AP)
I find working with them amazing at the design stage, where they afford to try ideas quickly.

At this point i already removed 50% of the library from my production code, in the end i will only keep tachyons classes that i'm actually using, the pruning process is tedious though

What would be an easy way to draw line charts in HTML/CSS/JS from a JSON file?
or if you want to use a bazooka to swath a fly, d3js
Yeah I don't want to use d3 or a js library, I think I'll just sit and get my head around a solution with only SVG

I'm currently working on a 12x18 gaseous giant poster. I've been using JS for my #, but for this one I'm using Lisp through Ronin (https://100r.co/site/ronin.html).

I'm pretty new to the language, but it seems to be more succinct and straightforward compared to the Canvas API. It feels easier to read too.

Currently a WIP, but the source can be found here: https://git.sr.ht/~jagtalon/gaseous-planet-art

Thanks for the awesome tool, @rek @neauoire
The full poster showing a gaseous planet floating in a sea of stars.
A screenshot showing the Ronin editor, the Ronin video tutorial, and the Ronin documentation.
Nice :D

My latest novel is Attack Surface, a sequel to my bestselling Little Brother books. @washingtonpost called it "a political cyberthriller, vigorous, bold and savvy about the limits of revolution and resistance."

Get signed books from @darkdel: https://www.darkdel.com/store/p1840/Available_Now%3A_Attack_Surface.html
I have a (free) new book out! "How to Destroy Surveillance Capitalism" is an anti-monopolist critique of Big Tech that connects the rise of conspiratorial thinking to the rise of tech monopolies and proposes a way to deal with both:

My first picture book is out! It's called Poesy the Monster Slayer and it's an epic tale of bedtime-refusal, toy-hacking and monster-hunting, illustrated by Matt Rockefeller. It's the monster book I dreamt of reading to my own daughter.

The Linksys WRT54G may be the most important router in the history of home networking—in part because of what was hiding inside the firmware

https://tedium.co/2021/01/13/linksys-wrt54g-router-history/

“In many ways, the WRT54G router series has become something of the Nintendo Entertainment System of wireless routers.”

Despite the vast triumphs of the world's largest corporations and most rapacious billionaires during the covid crisis, neoliberalism is in ideological retreat: more people are more critical of the idea that "free markets" can solve big problems than at any time in my life.

The Democratic nomination race was a fight between the neoliberal wing of the party and the Democratic Socialists, with the candidates representing a spectrum between those two sides (and the odd outlier on either side).

Chopra's (good) notorious for saying "FTC orders are not suggestions." Companies that treat them as such get the corporate death penalty.

Like Sanders, Chopra has shown that he knows how to work the system.

When he was at the Consumer Finance Protection Board, he used public pressure to get predatory student lenders to knuckle under, a tactic that alienated cozy swamp-monsters who were used to doing everything behind closed doors.

The Obama admin came to power in an unprecedented financial crisis and pissed away the opportunity to restructure the US economy so it worked for the people, not the elites.

Biden is inheriting a *much* worse crisis. We can't let him be "Obama's third term" - not if that means repeating the ghastly errors of his former boss.

While his upgrades were quick, seamless and pain-free. I can guarantee mine won't be.

I've been remembering Allison Randal as "that Canonical lawyer who was pushing for CLAs with Harmony", and was super surprised to see her on the SFC board, but after reading https://allisonrandal.com/2011/04/12/harmony-history/ I see her in what is probably a fairer light.

First of all, she's not a lawyer. :-D

I knew she was a developer involved in both Perl and Python, but I thought she was a lawyer too. =)
