@tychi I'm using mopidy (mpd) and icecast server-side. And mpc/ncmpcpp and something like mpv/mplayer/vlc client-side.

I just wrote a very nice big function.. I almost don't dare to write tests for it and spoil my illusion that it's perfect...

@toxision Very nice, another alternative, what I'm using myself, is bitlbee and an IRC client like weechat...

Tonight, I've been adding some small contributions to tuir: the Terminal UI for Reddit: gitlab.com/ajak/tuir/ (a fork of the discontinued rtv)

Browsing reddit from the terminal, on a pinephone even, is quite nice!

We just finished watching Caprica (yes, ten years overdue).. and now I want to make my homeautomation speak with a cylon voice and have red bouncy light on my LED strip..

In 1986 some geothermal teams in communist Romania drilled their way into a subterranean world, a world which had been cut off from the rest of the biosphere for 5.5 million years. No food, water, sunlight, or even radioactive particles from the Chernobyl disaster had made it there, these biologist and cavers were the first. It was warm and full of toxic gases, and it had a lake that was absolutely teeming with creatures. This is Movile Cave in Romania.

The cave was filled with 33 unique and endemic species of troglobites, among them were spiders, centipedes, leeches, and many, many isopods. They fed on a thin gooey film of chemosynthetic bacteria on the water and walls, the first known example of a terrestrial chemosynthetic ecosystem.

@sir Fyi, trying to post a comment on a sourcehut ticket (todo.sr.ht/~mil/sxmo-tickets/5) gave me a HTTP 500 the first time around, it did work the second time though...

It seems my pinephone just time-travelled out of the blue! `date` gives `Sun Sep 8 03:59:24 CEST 2115`. No morlock bite marks on the screen fortunately. Wiping off the tachyons just to be safe.

@guus That reminds me of the novel flatland by Edward Abbot, a classic. The more edges a man has in flatland, i.e. the more circle like, the more sophisticated one is. The simplest creatures only have two edges and are by definition women. They are pointy and are therefore to be avoided at all cost... It's a rather a misogynistic book but a great read :)

Hooked up our newly installed air condition system to my home automation system; let the 40 degrees celsius sunny summer days commence!

@jbauer I'd say Rust currently, it's designed well, nice type system, performant, has a capable toolchain (cargo) that facilitates building on the work of others (though the way dependencies can accumulate quickly worries me a bit). I also like Python and C++, and actually do/did more in those than in Rust, but that might change.
