I’m embarrassed to say that I have three Raspberry Pi Zero Ws sitting around idle, with no idea what to use them for. A fourth is powering a status display for my server farm, but the others just hang out installing the occasional software update.

"What is this meter?"
"My power charge level," the robot said.
"And this one?"
"My memory storage capacity."
"And this? It's going down!"
"That? It has a label."
"Oh? Hold still, will you? It's... Social capacity?"

"I trust this site's admins' blocking decisions, and they pay more attention to it than I can, so let me mirror them" kinda thing.

A thing I'd like... for instances to be able to export, via api, their block lists. domain level, at least, maybe a separate call to get user blocks too. And then to be able to subscribe another instance to one or more others' blocklists.

(the code still compiles and the tests still pass tho)

TFW you open up a project you haven't worked on for a while and see hard-coded time values in the tests... from 13 years ago.


I am the developper of reel2bits.

It’s a soundcloud-like self-hosted app, which goal is to be kiss and easy to use. And I am currently trying to implement ActivityPub support.

I would really love to have some more contributors than just myself to work better on it. (python3, flask, celery)

A matrix room have been created for that: reel2bits:otter.sh. And I have at least this week and full next one free to help anyone getting on the codebase.

Yup, been writing too much perl lately. Just found myself typing `my @entries` in ruby...

TIL that being depressed about not getting the job you wanted does not help you win the lottery.

Damnit, I'm getting things all out of order. I did anger, bargaining, and depression already, but _now_ I'm doing denial? C'mon, brain, get it together.

Oh, except a gem can't depend on a git version of a gem, so I can't use fog-backblaze until they release a new version. Direct to the API it is.

Nobody has created an activestorage-backblaze module as far as I can find. I stubbed one out a couple months ago, then got pulled away and haven't touched it since. I could go ahead and implement it using fog, as some other AS modules have done, or I could talk to the api directly. Not sure which is better. Maybe fog first to get it done, then refactor later? Except I know it'll be forever until I do...

I had forked fog-backblaze to fix some bugs, then had to wander away from it for a while. The bugs have since been fixed in master, but no new release. On the other hand, I'm looking to move from carrierwave to activestorage, so maybe I don't care? except...
