Here's a thing I wrote about building mobile/modular computers with a raspberry pi: http://ajroach42.com/diy-convertible-computing/
The darkest of UX patterns. Interrupt what people actually want to see (their feed) with a thing that sounds like it’s good, with a big obvious blue button that will make it go away, while uninformed users are actually “opting in” to invasive, privacy-destroying tracking.
Is this a question? Because it doesn't seem like I'm able to say "no".
medical fun fact Show more
Apparently a cure for the common cold was discovered in the mid-80s, but nobody uses it because it interacts badly with hormonal birth control.
This fun fact brought to you by the science conference @Canageek is at, which is holding a memorial session for the crystallographer who discovered it.
I wonder if, now that more people in North America are using non-hormonal birth control, they'll start working on it again
It’s a hot hot hot hot day in parts of North America. If you’re like me, your only access to cooling at home is something like a struggling window unit.
Libraries can be cooling stations if you can get to one. And they mostly won’t kick you out. They’re a place you can be and not buy anything. Keep safe if you can. 💜💜💜💜
here's a thing I've been working on.
it syncs an emacs text buffer with a matching pdf rendered with pdf-view, updating the facing page to match where you're editing. Pages are delimited by form-feed chars, which is the norm for pdf -> text conversion.
Hi! I'm Accio ^^
My main account is @acciomath, but I'm experimenting with having some alts for some of my different interests.
I've only recognized myself as gay for a few months now, and am currently figuring out my way through coming out to my friends and (eventually) my parents. I'm worried about how to navigate my way through Uni, which I will be starting this fall.
Glad to meet you all! :D

Wait what, @VillaniCedric@twitter.com is on Quora 🤯

@gendor Terribly sorry to just barge in, but do you happen to know where I can find a schema for the json file given when one exports data from Tidepool? I was hoping to use the file to add treatments in Nightscout that I could run autotune on.
I'm into decentralized networks, open source hardware, modular design, distributed manufacturing, appropriate technology and solarpunk.
I spend most of my time liberating data from diabetes devices like insulin pumps and blood glucose meters, writing open-source software for tidepool.org.
I would like to spend more time growing food and building hardware to support that, and I hope to find inspiration here in the Merveilles.town community.
