Finally I get to play with the big toys, too!

NASA's total budget between 1958 and 2018 was about $600 bn. To put that in perspective: That's a little less than the US military's _annual_ budget.

NB.: Using the 1 bn = 1000 million (i.e. short scale)

take me down to parallax city where the back moves slow and the front moves quickly

Nur mal so aus Interesse: Was habt ihr so für Erfahrungen mit 3D-Druckern auf niedrigerem Preisniveau (200-300€) gemacht?

Wo kann man denn in Laufweite des Piloty-Gebäudes günstig parken?

Die werden meine erste "Chaos-Veranstaltung", nachdem sonst irgendwie immer etwas dazwischenkam. Nach ca. 3 Jahren wird es jetzt endlich mal Zeit!
Mal gespannt, wie das wird! :)

Not the best quality picture, but I like it!

On a related note: My hamster seems to be nocturnal indeed...

Next: Implementing email notifications in case of (un-)normal activity.
Also: Writing more documentation and unit tests.

Oh, rebuilding the web interface for my hamster wheel monitor to use WSGI instead of CGI was worth it. The loading time reduced from ~1.5 s to ~30 ms.

One more auth system that will give you nightmares...

This JavaScript code powers a 1,500 user intranet application.

The longer you look at it the more insane it gets.

As someone who has never used twitter, it is funny to "reverse engineer" how the community over there has to be, based on Mastodon toots...

Script: you just wanted to fix something real quick
Application: your script got out of control

Arbeite mal an meiner nächsten c¼h: Das "smarte" Hamsterrad.

@lutoma @aslmx @allo Thank you! :) Having made a system image and regularly backing up "important" data anyway, I have now decided to just try using it as is. When it worked for you, maybe I am lucky, too.

Is anybody here running a Raspberry Pi 24/7 and can tell me something about sd card corruption? Is it bad? Is it necessary to mount readonly?

Which software do you use for making presentations on linux and why?
I do not like Impress, because it feels old and clunky. Usually I use LaTeX beamer, but it is not the best solution for quickly patch together a presentation.

Show more - because anarchy is much more fun with friends. is a small Mastodon instance for and by the Chaos community surrounding the Chaos Computer Club. We provide a small community space - Be excellent to each other, and have a look at what that means around here.
