Decided to move to a different instance. I'm at @jakob now

What the fuck I just found a $20 in the trash

It should work with GNU Radio too

Finally bought one of those Chinese HackRF clones. I've been on the fence for weeks because it's entirely possible that there's some glaring issue like firmware not being flashed, but the Ebay seller has a reasonable return policy and there are some screenshots of it working with SDR#

@abs If you're looking to sync it with a phone, Gadgetbridge has a supported feature matrix. Not sure about other software for interacting with sports watches

@pounce Ah don't worry about it, there's plenty of opportunity for mutual learning even if we differ in terms of experience

Once-in-a-long-while reminder that I made an open source ASCII art, animation, and game creation tool called Playscii:
People have made some pretty cool stuff with it!
It's a dynamic, hackable thing written in Python so you can do all sorts of oddness with it.

@abs Long distance running is super rewarding, but be sure to take it slow when you're increasing the distance. My dad trained for the Twin Cities marathon by running half-marathon distances and winging it when the actual marathon rolled around. He made it through the marathon, but going from 21 km to 42 km was a big enough jump that he sustained an injury :<

@pounce 您要一个中文说的笔友吗? I'm not a native speaker by any means, but I've been meaning to get back into learning and also like the idea of having a sparring partner

@wasamasa Yeah, chia seeds aren't super flavorful on their own. I find you can make some pretty tasty pudding if you use whole coconut milk and bananas, but the seeds are just kinda there to absorb liquid and give it a pudding-y consistency. They're also good for you, but that's besides the point

"he offer'd to give me a Patent for the sole Vending of them for a Term of Years; but I declin'd it from a Principle which has ever weigh'd with me on such Occasions, viz. That as we enjoy great Advantages from the Inventions of others, we should be glad of an Opportunity to serve others by any Invention of ours, and this we should do freely and generously"

My schedule this semester is pretty much perfect. Weekday traffic on I-290 is only really on eastbound, so if I come home for a weekend I can go back Monday. Also, I'm already accustomed to an early dinner so I can just use the grab 'n go on my meal plan to snarf down dinner during CS187

This 93° weather has given me a pretty good reason to run/mow/weed without a shirt on

The designer of Itanium must be in his office right now laughing at all these x86 vulnerabilities finally coming out.
