pixie.town got a donation for a new 500GB SSD :)
when it comes in terra hardware configuration will change from:

256GB ssd (rootfs)
2x 2TB hdd in RAID1 (postgres and media storage)

to
2x 256GB ssd RAID1 (rootfs, postgres)
media storage:
200GB ssd cache (remainder of the 500GB)
2TB hdd

this should definitely improve Matrix and Mastodon performance a lot

taking terra (synapse, mastodon) down for a bit while I debug a possible hardware failure

alc, joke 

"So i just came out to my dad abt being #nb, and he said something really wise about names, i think.

He said “Gifts are not obligations. You give things to people, and you hope they like them. And your name was a gift from us to you. If it doesn’t work for you anymore, you’re not obligated to keep it.”

and i just thought maybe other people could use hearing something like that."

I'm now turning this into a pcb module, starting with the schematic.
Adding USB-C wew

so the bicycle parking where my second bike is has a maximum stay of 2 weeks (which they actually enforce, I had to pay to get my bike back once already). I don't visit there too often anymore though, so today I took the train there, moved my bike to a different spot, and got the train back, with 3 minutes in between trains :D

and here's the schematic, the TP4056 is a great simple chip. I used 2.2K ohm for Rprog, but with 1.2K it will charge the fastest (1A)

so tonight I did my first real SMD soldering, on a pretty challenging chip :D

I desoldered the TP4056 ic from a dead SHA2017 badge, then made everything work on the smd-protoboard of the eth0 badge.
Great fun learning to do tiny soldering, and getting used to working under a microscope

It charges a single-cell lipo, and gives the charging status over a wire, something the prebuilt modules can't (they connect it to an onboard led instead).

Next up will be adding a voltage divider to get a battery voltage reading, and throwing this all into kicad (also a first for me)

@nimblejack @alexis @DissidentKitty have you ever read Édouard Siddon's classic argument in "Against America"? It really thoroughly debunks these myths you're spouting

Had some time to work on again, my static site generator.
JSX templates, different flavours of frontmatter and a basic sitewide config file

Definitely needs a bunch of refactoring now that I'm more clear on the project's heading, but features are working :D

this is incredible, such amazing filmmaking and fight choreography
