The only downside to the PineTime being so affordable is that it's sort of hard to swallow all the watch bands I like being the same price as the watch itself!

Not sure how I missed this the other day, but it was the 30-year anniversary of this rather important post.

Homelab folks, what interesting and exciting things are you currently running?

I recently migrated fro Bitwarden to Vaultwarden and I couldn't be happier. Now I'm energized to do something new.

With the weekend officially started, I'm sitting back on my couch getting some more work done on some schematics that I'll be releasing soon for the offerings! Stay tuned!

Obviously, this iteration is from Quake, but the implementation has been traced back quite a bit further.

I remember the first time I saw the fast inverse square root. It took me some years before I was strong enough in C (and calc) to truly understand it, but it's a somewhat legendary piece of computer history and this fantastic video is probably the most effective explainer that I've seen of it.

@trinsec Base-12 would need to use additional characters like A and B to represent the additional digits.

So it would probably go like this on a watch:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, 10

@trinsec I don't think it's base 12. On the watch in the photo the number after 07 is 10. With the 1 representing the 8s.

Should I buy this octal watch?

What would advertisements for different KDE apps look like? KDE Gear ⚙️ 21.08, an update to many of KDE's applications, comes out on Thursday, and we decided to give it a go.

Today: [Konsole](konsole.kde.org/)
Tomorrow: [Dolphin](apps.kde.org/dolphin/)
Wednesday: [Elisa](elisa.kde.org/)

[Want more apps?](apps.kde.org/)

My whole childhood, my whole young adulthood, this was my absolute favourite place in the world.

It was an incubator for engineering, electronics, art, and so much more. The hole left behind with its closure has yet to be filled. We need places like this again.

After taking my brother's advice and calibrating my soil moisture sensor to baked soil, I've found that it's working much more accurately than before.

If you have a similar setup and did your calibration with "dry air", I'd recommend making this adjustment.

If you are curious about trying out Tenacity before the first release, we have some very early builds (Windows, macOS, Linux, some *BSDs are planned) that can be downloaded here *for the time being*: nightly.link/tenacityteam/tena

We'll eventually replace that link, this is just a temporary link that "mirrors" our latest builds from GitHub Actions.

Alternatively, if you're on Arch Linux, you can just fetch the `tenacity-git` package using your favorite AUR tool: aur.archlinux.org/packages/ten

Share your favourite feeds! All topics welcome.

I'll get things started:

"Along with other optimizations to benefit the Steam Deck, AMD and Valve have been jointly working on CPU frequency/power scaling improvements to enhance the Steam Play gaming experience on modern AMD platforms running Linux."

This is certainly an interesting turn of events.
