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:

This is getting ridiculous. I keep hitting the Discord member cap. Both 30 days of inactivity.

Still looking for a new Mastodon instance. It is tempting to run to one of the many Pleroma instances, but I would rather not want to herd my existing followers to re-follow me.

Today is one of those days where I wish my ISP supported IPv6.

I have a good use for it today. Guess I'll fiddle with ports instead.

This new Coronavirus is so frustrating. It's so far away but it has already cost me a comfy business trip and about 250€ on top of that.

Something is killing my laptop's battery life. How can my laptop be using 30W when idling?

It used to do around 10W before.

What should have been one or two buttons on a website is now a 20 minute phone call.

Darn booking agents.

This whole Coronavirus ordeal might be a real pain in the ass for me.

I'm flying to Vietnam via Hong Kong in a week.

My airline just cancelled all flights to mainland China.

I just got asked to speak in great lengths about ElasticSearch at an exam. The curriculum has nothing to do with databases, but oh well 🤔

Thinking about doing another Wakeful hoodie and/or brand new Disco Dingo T-Shirt Kickstarter. #art #illustration #mastoart

I asked my ISP if they supported IPv6. They don't, so they asked if I wanted to work on it for them.

Not that I can blame them. They're selling tickets on credit, and my private limited company has next to nothing in registered capital.

Me: “Hello national train operator! Can I buy some tickets for my business?” :blobcat:
Them: “Haha no. Your business is too poor to be trusted.” :blobcatsuit:

Does Firefox not have a way to temporarily disable notifications? I need a browser for my exam.

Looks like the most effective solution is to just suspend notifications by evalling some Lua in my window manager :blobcatshrug:

It is a wonder to my why one of my professors is teaching me about an RPC framework that was deprecated over a decade ago, and which only
supports Windows.

Meanwhile, another professor is mandating that we at least dual-boot Linux during the same semester.

Trying out this new jug I got for Christmas. Has a valve built-in to prevent the tea from becoming too bitter.

Paper tickets are quite rare these days. Most people use a digital code or a universal RFC card.

They probably only sent this by mail because it looks like they tamper-proofed this ticket with microprint.

Today I travelled with a special compensation train ticket sent in the mail. Given the impression of the conductors, these must be pretty rare.

One was nearly convinced my ticket was invalid.

The other said that my crumbled ticket was beautiful or nice, depending on translation.
