Isn’t it customary for people who need their iPhone to work, to wait for at least a point update, like 16.1? πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»πŸ“±

I can easily spend 2 hours researching a simple question and not finding any answers. Google search isn’t as good as it used to beβ€”I suspect foul play through SEO πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Developing C64 programs with Kick Assembler, VICE and Visual Studio Code on my Raspberry PI 400 😱 It’s a hassle, yet doable. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

I’m in that part of my Go language course where things might get confusing. That would be pointer arithmetic β€πŸ˜± πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

I 😊 can has Go on iPad running on Pi πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

This new Go course on Udemy is much better suited for me, at least, so far. The presenter is not cutting corners and patiently digs into each line of code to explain the underlying concepts πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Trying to teach myself the Go language. I’m still lacking a pet project to bring me to the next level of beginner Go programmer πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

I’ve upgraded my Raspberry Pi 4 to the newest OS, 11 Bullseye, and reinstalled the third-party software. What I like is that new updates are automatically shown in the task bar. No longer needlessly typing sudo apt update. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Thinking about consumerism… I have no need for new gadgets, so I’ll skip Apple’s presentation today. It’s just another sales pitch to unload some of the burden of having disposable income, preying on FOMO of the tech and adjacent enthusiasts. This is how I rationalize it πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

And then everything broke, SMB, SSH, on my Pi. So I removed all the software, turned off the services. Should teach me not to install 3rd-party software. Back to file exchange via USB-sticks.

The official Hugo primer is already way above my pay grade. The intro by Mike Dane is much gentler, and doesn’t assume any prior knowledge as the official primer seems to do. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

I can has Remote Desktop Access to my Pi πŸ₯§ now, with TeamViewer for personal use (free) πŸ€“ πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

πŸ’‘When in doubt about a feature on Linux Desktop, try the Windows equivalent. My question was: “What key combo is used to switch between apps?” Alt+Tab on both Windows and Linux Desktop πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Web coding in Hugo, while watching a YouTube video on the page generated by the local Hugo server, running on my brand new Raspberry Pi 400. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

It’s nice to have extra space instead of the stock 16 GiB that comes with the Raspberry Pi 400. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Since Linux Desktop has limited support for emoji and no good input method editor (IME) I could find, I’ll have to use a cheat sheet with Unicodes. Most emoji are unsupported, though, which is a shame. To enter, press the ctrl+shift+u key combo, followed by the hex-digits. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Writing a long form post about my experiences learning how to modify microβˆ™blog themes… I expect part 1 to be out some time next week. I have the computer set up, software all installed. There’s education ahead! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Trying to understand the templating language behind microβˆ™blog is hurting my brain. I have really no idea how to tackle my problem of site navigation, where the previous post is out of scope of the current sectionβ€”or the next post if the current post is last in its section. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Reading the Command Line Interface Guidelines πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Yet with its creaky, decades-old constraints and inexplicable quirks, the command line is still the most versatile corner of the computer.

What We’ve Built Is a Computational Language (and That’s Very Important!)β€”Stephen Wolfram Writings Language both humans and computers can understand, as important as the introduction of Math symbols “+”, “-”, “=”, etc. centuries ago. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Python vs Swift Unlike many languages, Swift behaves like Maths, passing objects as values instead of as references, which saves a huge performance hit of having to clone objects to avoid other processes changing those objects unexpectedly. In Python everything has a pointerπŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Data Serialization β€” The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python Always handy to know if you have rolled your own, and wondered if this is a solved solution. In fact, there are several solutions. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

Pass 1 of a 2-pass assembler in Pythonista 3 seems to work for a 256 times 8-bit word memory. I hadn’t done that before, so it’s a win in my book πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

While reading all about how “modern” computers do all kinds of tricks to load executable code on the fly, doing this on an 1980s 8-bit computer seems rather cool, yet overkill. Though, combining built-in ROM routines and Basic with external executable modules is appealing πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»
