Can anyone recommend a good town builder game without too much competitive stuff? Just something to build a nice town in.

I love RTS games but sometimes just the build without the bash would be nice.

@jan@kcore.org avatar

@haploc that might work. Link?

Weer wat minder privacy...

Een lichtje, een piep, een trilling of automatische begrenzing: vanaf juli moet onze auto vertellen dat we te snel rijden.


@jan@kcore.org avatar

@repo dit heeft toch niks met privacy te maken?

GPS signaal plus GPS kaart plus camera in de wagen ingebouwd kan nu al melding geven dat je te snel aan het rijden bent.

Got talking to a biker guy, last night. He told me he has been on the carnivore diet for the last two years. When he started this diet he weighed 178kg (~28 stone). He now weighs 88kg (~14 stone). He is only half the man he was!

His before and after photos were even more impressive.

@jan@kcore.org avatar

@fitheach and how is he medically speaking?

My new hue outdoor (SML004) reports wildly different lux values than my old (SML002).

Direct sunlight: old - 25000+, new: 7000+. That's a three fold difference, atleast.

@peturdainn If you have any recommendations for any that could live outside, that'd be amazing ;)

The only one I've found sofar is the Hue.

@jan@kcore.org avatar

@peturdainn still no clue how I could make that low power and able to survive outdoors.

The hue lasts years on two AA cells.

@jan@kcore.org avatar

@peturdainn Yeah, that's indoor unfortunately ;)

Fun times trying to rescue a botched grub on a 12 with btrfs as rootfs.
Made it. 💪

@haploc cough ZFS cough

Has anyone ever seen the effect that a top-level recursive shows no more changes, but then going in the sub directories and doing individual rsyncs does give a lot of diff?

We're trying to figure out why that happens, and coming up empty.

Both FS are ext4, source server has been quieted (and FS even mounted r/o to make sure)

Rhel7 to rhel8. Rsync 3.1.2
Please boost.

So I bought a bunch of stuff to build an #epaper #weather display based off an #esp32 board, sort of mixing and matching stuff up from a few project I had found.

I had assumed that the hardware would be supported by #esphome, but the amount of stuff that especially me actually supports is... Disappointingly low.

So, besides learning how esphome works, I now get to figure out how to add a 3rd party library in there and how to write a panel description so it can drive it.

Fun times ahead, not.

I'm still baffled that #ebooks cost the same as physical #books.

Makes zero sense. Authors should get their fair share, but to the publishers there's a world of difference in costs.

#sidekiq finally got through it's 10k backlog. #mastoadmin

@jan@kcore.org avatar

@haploc too many open files. Which looks like a leak , since that graph creeped upwards during a month.

jan, to mastodon
@jan@kcore.org avatar

Yeah, I'd call this a problem somewhere. open files of the mastodon user, which just runs mastodon.

@jan@kcore.org avatar

@derek @michael
@derek @haploc

So it seems it's possibly a bug, but the odd thing is that it doesn't hit everyone.




@jan@kcore.org avatar

@paul @derek @michael @haploc

Interesting. I do use B2 S3, and indeed, the issue only started after migrating to that.

I'm wondering why I'm having a lot of open/pending connections to Elasticsearch, though, if it's related to B2?

@jan@kcore.org avatar

Hmm. Mastodon reached the open file limit again, yet this is set at the 65535. #mastoadmin

Here’s an idea: let’s call people “people” on the fediverse instead of “users” whenever we can.


“There are 42 users on this instance.”


“There are 42 people on this instance.”

Which acknowledges our humanity more?

Language matters. We don’t need to perpetuate mainstream technology’s othering/colonial framing of “us” – designers/developers/other “clever folks” – and “them” – the users (usually one step removed from “dumb user” and usually the ones who get used).


@jan@kcore.org avatar

@aral that would lump in a lot of bots with people.

Bots are not people. Users, perhaps.
