undermine the vole

The drama surrounding F1 is infinitely more interesting than the racing itself. Looks like whatever happens, 2025 is going to be an absolute rollercoaster.

My team at UpCloud is hiring for a couple of roles!

We build the Managed Kubernetes platform and work on some very cool Kube-things. Expect a ton of Cluster API, Go, K8s operators, and general cloud-native fun.

Both roles are fully remote anywhere in Europe or, if you prefer, in-office in Helsinki, Finland (we have a super sick office!).

Feel free to write to me at anirudh.oppiliappan (at) company website or in the thread if you've got any questions, and I'll try to get them answered for you!

@tedu @horia that doesn't seem to work for me. So you need two users in the combo, one with the .rss URL and one with the normal URL, yeah? I tried that, and my combo is empty.

The better battery life only further exacerbates the problem. I can now be less conscious of how much I use my phone because I know it's not going to die on me. The 13 mini on the other hand does not afford me such luxuries, resulting in fewer hours spent on it.

Decided to switch back to my 13 mini from the 15 Pro—primary reason being its size, but I also noted some interesting changes in my phone usage.

The 15 Pro's better display, faster refresh rate, oh-so-satisfying haptics and the Dynamic Island make it a very fun little fidget toy. I found myself pulling it out of my pocket simply because of how nice it is to just… use (read: fiddle with). My screen usage times—previously in the 2h to 3h mark—were now in the 4h to 6h (!) range. So yep, time to get rid of it.

Oh my honk PWA now just opens in a new Safari tab on iOS 17.4 beta. Thanks EU.

@vuhh That's interesting, perhaps the Mastodon side of the fedi generally engages in/produces the "life sux" type of discourse. I suppose the same pruning of followed accounts is in order here.

Personally speaking, I find it to be of relatively high quality—very topical, focused discussions/posts on tech and culture in my feed. Maybe being a user of a non-mainstream ActivityPub server helps here, since the honk user base is tiny and highly tech-inclined, and generally with a similar subset of interests (Go, ActivityPub, OpenBSD, ...). Which isn't to say that's all I follow, but it sure helps increasing signal in my feed.

On second thoughts, perhaps not. Bluesky is very reminiscent of Twitter—especially in terms of quality of discourse, and I'm not ready for a downgrade.

Decided to setup my Bluesky finally (@icyphox.sh)—doubt it will see much use, but I'll keep it around just in case. Perhaps a honk <→ Bluesky cross-poster? Hmm.

Why am I seeing this Are.na thing everywhere all of a sudden?

So much fun shooting this thing in Lisbon and Budapest (and for a day in Bratislava). It’s heavy, and not the smallest, but I love it.

Considering making a website documenting hand inspections of film at airports, and also including what type of scanners they have (x-ray, CT, “film safe” CTs…). User-submitted content of course. Any ideas on optimal layout/design/features are appreciated!

lol just got denied entry to the Matthias Church in Castle District, Budapest. why? it was holy mass and no tourists were allowed. except here’s the kicker: i lined up with a bunch of other people, clearly tourists (it’s a tourist hotspot), and the door lady stepped in front of me alone and stopped me from going through. even funnier, my gf went through just fine. i went back, sat on a bench and watched a whole bunch more go in.

the possible reason for this is left as an exercise for the reader.

@knapjack ah, I think GoToSocial was initially the same API-only model, if memory serves. Definitely interesting since there’s plenty of frontends already—both for web and mobile.

Off to Budapest today! Really looking forward to shooting this random 400 ISO color film I found. Didn’t find too much info about it online, but I’m going to guess it’s some kind of respooled cinema film? I have absolutely no idea but I’m excited to find out.
