Many folks share screenshots of their phone home screens. These are often intriguing to look at, but what I'm really interested in knowing is what you set as your browser homepage? Here's mine!

It's been about:blank for a few years now :) used to use some service (start… .io?) back in the day

Hi, I'm Eli and my hobbies include:

  • Grocery shopping late at night
  • Taking the dog out for walks late at night
  • Ironing clothes late at night
  • Running...

In other words: I like listening to podcasts. Listening to podcasts is really my only hobby. I do other things as an excuse to listen to podcasts.

heh. I like podcasts in theory, but I spend too much time just doing things on my PC, so it's not a good situation for actually listening to them…

Let Me Link to You

So wait. Where are you?

I guess I’m caught in my filter bubble again. After #DeleteFacebook, maybe you went back to your bicycle and your Polaroid camera. But maybe you’re out there still—can I still find you?

Hey, I have an idea! Just tell me where you’re at. A link to your personal blog or home page or whatever it is.

Not a business or a software project. Not a venture. Just your zany vaporwave page or your sobering, grief-stricken page or your low-key photos of old train cars page. Video, audio, telnet—whatever kind of link. …

lemoncurry 1.10.0: what's new and what's next?

lots of stuff is new, since i haven't posted a changelog since 1.9.4! let's focus on the important things i guess?

  • all my html templates are jinja2 now instead of vanilla django - jinja2 is faster and also much more capable, since it supports pretty much arbitrary python expressions rather than a very strict specialised syntax
  • lemoncurry now natively serves avatars through the libravatar protocol, which is basically like an open distributed version of gravatar? sadly, the main libravatar server later announced that it's shutting down in october :( my implementation will still work at least, …

Awesome! I store everything as microformats2 json, even configuration and such. I kinda went overboard with the storage system though: all nested objects (like replies) are extracted into their own entries and querying has to reassemble the object, looking up any nested object by url :D This is not very fast...

  • I’m looking for an outliner!
    • Why I’m looking
      • I’ve been creating outlines since high school. I started with pen and paper, then moved to text editors—first Word, then Google Docs, and finally, plaintext files. I’ve been creating plaintext outlines for about 5 years. I typically save my outlines as Markdown and export them using Pandoc if they need to be shared with other folks. I use outlines to take notes, plan projects, create documentation, and as todo lists. I’m a plaintext junky. Whenever and wherever I can, I use plaintext. I edit plaintext with either Neovim…

I use vim-orgmode with Orgzly on Android. There are orgmode apps for iOS too, but I don't know how good they are.

The inevitable happened: Intel confirms critical security issues with Intel ME: https://security-center.intel.com/advisory.aspx?intelid=INTEL-SA-00086&languageid=en-fr

"This includes scenarios where a successful attacker could: ... Load and execute arbitrary code outside the visibility of the user and operating system."

And of course it affects "6th, 7th & 8th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor Family", meaning pretty much all our desktop/laptop CPUs.

"All our CPUs" is inaccurate. Most people have older CPUs, and AMD Ryzen are the best selling CPUs this year…

Today’s I streamed for ten hours.

I was a little slow getting ready this morning but I managed to be on stream only fifteen minutes late. I managed to get up to the final card in Hand Of Fate but after playing for six hours I couldn’t beat it so now I have the dilemma of whether or not I spend another stream trying to defeat that last card boss or do I just start afresh with Hand Of Fate 2 for my next PC stream?

Afterwards I napped hard on the couch for a few …

wow, 10 hours… I mean, I've seen a 24 hour stream of Sonic '06 :D but that's still a lot
