I’ve rarely seen someone play Quasimodo (a game I wrote as a kid) as well as this YouTube gamer.

It can be downloaded for free on 8-bit gamer sites and runs on any 6502 assembly emulator.

RAM originally required to run: 16KB ;)

Can't really get much closer than that today. It looks pretty bad but I'm really impressed by how such an old building could resist this well

Tried to get by with a bit less sleep to start the day off early this morning, made dumb mistakes all day.

Note to self (once again): Sleep is vital.

This isn't talked about enough:
Storing your mnemonic seed alone isn't enough, you also need to store the derivation path.

Ledger Live software is generally unusable on my (Debian Sid) system. It does enable RBF when creating a tx, but it doesn't allow you to bump the fee.
Had some serious issues when importing my seed into Electrum until I found out it was using an incorrect derivation path. Only when I (manually) fixed that, I could see I had > 0 satoshis.

Write it down to avoid panic ;)

This thread is interesting about a very old case which has now been brought to light; Silk Road 2.

Does anyone else remember being super-suspicious about how Blake Benthall basically seemed to have gotten away with it?

@jon Should be of interest to many node runners, but do remember, it's your call whether you ban peers :)

Techie friends: if you haven’t started using Mosh (vs SSH) yet, you should. The short version is that it’s SSH over UDP, so it’s connectionless and you don’t get disconnected whenever your IP changes (like you walk into work and your phone jumps from LTE to Wi-Fi) or your laptop goes to sleep. It also has much better interactive latency, especially on slow mobile networks. “The user pressed ‘A’ and isn’t in Vim’s command mode. I’ll display a proposed ‘A’ then unless the server tells me not to.”

The fediverse is Mastodon, Pleroma, Diaspora, Friendica, Hubzilla, Osada and all their friends, federating. But what do we call all the silos, the ad-based family of Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and friends? How about Adverse? It's true: a universe founded on ad serving. And a reminder that the offer plenty of adversity.
