🔗 "Encoding data in dubstep drops

[Warning: Those who can’t stand EDM/dubstep, oh boy do I have bad news for you in regards to this blog post]"

So, just like most people I've been totally running out of interesting stuff to binge. Now that America is over, what else should I check out?

The modem (yes, the modem) can now run Linux kernel 5.10 (@[email protected])... we're sure many of you know where this is heading :)
Massive thanks to biktorgj, konradybcio and others.

Look, democracy can't work without sulfuric acid and electron microscopes

Finally fixed an annoying bluetooth audio bug on my laptop by installing the newer bluez 5.55-3 package.

Apparently it was a known bug.

As much as I love the Kobo Forma, I'd really love a truly open alternative from a company like @PINE64.

Hopefully we'll see something like that in the coming years.

Finally put together my @PINE64 breakout board!

The Pinecil is a great little TS100 clone with an open hardware design and open source firmware! I'm powering mine with my QC3/PD USB-C charger and it works great.

We're incredibly pleased to announce the @PINE64 community will begin hosting and sharing their videos on #TILvids! This is an incredibly important and impressive project for anyone that values security and privacy in their mobile life!

Have I recommended J Clark Scott's "But How Do It Know?" recently?

Scott does what few educators can ever achieve and marries accessibility with depth. This book should be required reading for both budding computer scientists and educators!

I don't think anyone would ever regret buying @[email protected]'s "Trans // Mission".

"Fille / Garçon" is just one great track to check out, but I think the whole album is worth the price of admission.

On top of it all, @[email protected] even mixed a couple of the tracks.

Anyone in the , worlds know of a good encrypted, synced note-taking app?

I need something that can run offline and sync whenever an internet connection is available, supporting Linux and Android (without google services). I'm happy to self-host a server if required.

A great bonus would be the ability to share notes.

My mind is still blown at how much this sounds like writing tiny demos in assembly language.

Bytes that map to instructions. Mandatory file headers to get the operating system to accept it. Tweaking individual bytes for performance optimisations.

University of Helsinki free MOOC on the Ethics of AI - ethics-of-ai.mooc.fi/

Everyone interested—or currently working—in should check out this coursework over the holidays.

The JumpDrive image is such a beautiful, simple solution to working with the hardware.

Buying a refurbished laptop has lots of advantages! You can keep a perfectly good device out of the dump while also saving a whole lot of money.
