On a break from my 5 year world tour.

Recently diagnosed with colon cancer so a lot of my posts now are going to be about that. I’ll CW any super graphic stuff but consider this a CW: cancer for my entire feed.

Currently: 🇺🇸
Previously: 🇯🇵🇰🇷🇹🇼🇳🇿🇳🇱

I love cats. And dogs.

it's ridiculous to me the amount of queries being blocked by pihole. 23% of my dns queries are being shitcanned by the most simple of lists, plus the domains I hellbanned by watching my TV's dns queries for an hour while I messed around with things to try to turn off all of its ads and such.

23% of my dns traffic is ads and tracking and telemetry garbage.

I also use browser based ad blocking so that's probably doing a lot of heavy lifting on its own.

crikey.

one thing I do know is: I just ordered an apple tv and once it arrives the TV's wifi is getting completely shut off, I'm going to ban its mac address from my wifi router, and it will never talk to the internet again.

I know that apple is also harvesting some data about my usage, but I trust them more than I do all of whoever has their fingers in my TV's pie.

Ok it’s steroid brain time how much am I going to get done re turning the thinkpile into a kube cluster before the fatigue wins tonight?

And do I start by making a last ditch effort to get windows running on the nuc before before I drop nixos on it and migrate my shell setup over to it (which will be trivial since it’s all defined in nix now) or do I just go straight to nix and maybe do a windows VM and vnc if I want to do something stupid like play EverQuest

“The thinkpile” since I hadn’t yet properly named or introduced it.

They’re all thinkcentre m900tiny with 8gb of ram (expandable to 32gb) and varying amounts of storage between 500 and 1tb all m.2 nvme

One of them is my Plex server. One is my shell box. One has a busted cooling fan. So it would start as a 2 node cluster, I’d move the shell to the nix nuc and repurpose it and the “this will be my new Plex server” box. Once Plex server moved into kube I’d add the third. Fourth once fan arrives.

Working on a tutorial, and in order to do it I've written a scripting framework that will run all the steps and capture the relevant outputs, while also, from the same data, generating the documentation.

i think it's a good idea... whether I wanted to write a new framework I'm not so sure.

any neovim and/or nixos experts around? I am ... my brain hurts trying to figure this out. I’d love to ask a few questions of someone :D

for my first question I guess ... I'm trying to figure out how a thing is being loaded. Nix installs plugins (e.g. pkgs.vimPlugins.catppuccin-nvim) into the nix store, and if I open nvim it's not loaded. Fine, I need to set the colorscheme. Works fine. But where is that being loaded from? I use :scriptnames to see and that's fine, but ... how does it find that weird nix store path? &runtimepath doesn't have it ... so I'm assuming some sort of symlinking or something going on under the hood?

nix be like

isFunction (x: x); # true
isFunction (x:x); # false

Second is false because it's a String. Because “x:x" is being interpreted as a uri literal.

I'm horrified.

(still better than bash)

@dantleech so far I'm on board with everything I've done with nix

idempotent

declarative

cross platform

completely incomprehensible language

really to me the like ... standard library modules are the worst part so far. Such a mix of "fully modeled" and "just barely more than using file” even within the same module (looking at you zsh)

kitchen,
@kitchen@simian.rodeo avatar

@dantleech I was doing that but then I ran into "tmux plugins" and everything went completely sideways and I realized I needed to actually learn how the language works

Today I'm mostly waiting for 6 minute builds. It's tempting to do something else in those 6 minutes, but I know if I do I'll be doing that thing for 30m or an hour and miss potential iterations.

@dantleech spend that time figuring out how to decrease the iteration cycle :D

is there a, say, rust installable (or better yet, apt and brew) installable lightweightish thing that can do some very basic idempotent shell scripts, mostly installing packages ... really I just want ansible don't I bleh

it's so heavy though

kitchen,
@kitchen@simian.rodeo avatar

WIARTTD: install my standard package set required for all of my dotfiles to work, but in a cross platform and idempotent way. Right now I just have a terrible little bash script that's templated for macos and ubuntu.

really I just want ansible don't I

@dantleech yea I looked into nix and it seems wayyyyyyy invasive outside of the containers

I'm happy to be wrong though

@dantleech just pick a random dictionary word at this point. if you want to make it searchable pull out a vowel or something

In Norway, while recording a broadcast, a huge fish crashed into the journalist’s face

A video has gone viral on social networks in which a correspondent from a Norwegian TV channel talks about the strongest storm in the country in the last 30 years.

After a sudden meeting with a fish, the journalist lost his footing and fell, after which he was covered by a wave.

What happened only amused him.
