Pinned toot

I got really bored so I wrote a simple dithering tool in Kotlin. It is surprising how little loss you get when reducing an image to 8 colors. Source code:

That was a cozy last night at . I'm lurking somewhere in this photo.

So apparently I'm going to CCCamp in Berlin in a few days. I am incredibly lucky to be offered a ticket, as I only learned about this event a few weeks ago.

Good thing my passport is still valid!

Mode of transport: A caravan of many vehicles.

Next time I'm going to an event like Bornhack, I should bring a DECT phone. Of course, my phone number would need to be 3733 (FRED)

Though I have my reservations about buying a laptop with a 10xx Nvidia card.

Buying a new laptop would be so much easier if I wasn't accustomed to using a 4K screen.

I'm looking at a hefty machine for $1800. That's probably a bit overkill. At least my own company is paying.

Watching a livestream recorded a few meters from where I am, as I am too lazy to get up from this comfy bean bag.

There is this crazy Dutch hacker space which got 5000€ to print those CYBER stickers. Now they are giving literal heaps of them away. It has become a meme to put them on anything, from cargo-bikes to fridges.

I have resisted decorating this laptop for over a year due to business reasons. I finally caved.

I'll add more later.

There is also a wifi hotspot that only has IPv6. You know, if you want to sabotage yourself and experience the future.

Camping in nature.

I'm currently connected to the internet via a 500m temporary fiber line going through private property and hanging over a trafficked road with two flagpoles.

Take that nature.

Oh, and everyone has a unique IPv4 and IPv6 due to RIPE NCC allocating some blocks temporarily.

All packed. I'm soon headed out to Bornhack 2019 :blobowo:

System administration can be frustrating, but it is rewarding to see things improve again :blobcatcoffee:

Or maybe Reimu is just the better girl compared to Marisa :hi_reimu:

Administrating high-performance systems is hard. These graphs should show the same levels, as they have the same loads and configurations :thonking:
