The newly added Quartz64 page on the pine64 wiki includes a link to the datasheet PDF for "Eink 10.3" 1872x1404 ES103TC1 Glass Panel Specification" that corresponds to the panel they're planning on offering alongside the quartz64 line, I assume.
if #eink is something you're into you might want to take a peek.
There’s a post going around on the birdsite that slams the emergence of the app web as a fundamental wrong turn in the evolution of the web.
I have some sympathy with this perspective although I suspect my reasons are not the same as that of the original poster.
My take is that all of modern software fundamentally got _documents_ wrong and the turn the web took is an inevitable consequence of that.
Happy birthday, Wikipedia 🎉
Wikipedia turned 20 years old on January 15, 2021!
Wikipedia has contributed to free and widely available knowledge like probably no other platform. Showing the world the true power of collaboration on the open internet and what a great cooperating community is capable of. ❤️
Finally, here's a really interesting map showing the details of seismogenic sources in Europe:
tl;dr The southeast is screwed.
The M=5.4 earthquake in Zagreb in March resulted in serious damage to poorly constructed buildings in our capital, mostly in the historical city center. There are still no clear plans for proper, structural earthquake-resistant reconstruction.
The two recent earthquakes in Pokuplje destroyed entire small cities and villages, rendering them uninhabitable.
Even in 1909, Mohorovičić was aware that this part of Europe is extremely seismically active. He spent the better part of his later career advocating for earthquake-resistant engineering and better building practices.
Unfortunately, he was largely ignored, and Croatia is suffering the consequences 100+ years later.
My interests, in no particular order: physics, programming (esp. API design), music (esp. weird), left-leaning politics.
