1. 12

Feel free to tell what you plan on doing this weekend and even ask for help or feedback.

Please keep in mind it’s more than OK to do nothing at all too!

  1. 9

    Me and my buddy are hopefully launching our first ever product we’re calling “FundedReport” (though the name may change if that one falls flat on its face). Its been 13 months since we said we would knock it out in 2-3 weekends (mid March last year, hoping for a 2021 April release). Pretty excited :)

    1. 1

      please share a link!

      1. 1

        absolutely :) I’ll swing back Monday after we’re 100%

    2. 5

      Converting my NixOS setup over to flakes fully. I’m probably gonna stream me adding flake configs to all the various services my main cloud box hosts.

      1. 4

        Spending most of the weekend at the sailing club, hopefully without getting too wet.

        Also trying to sort out a replacement car as our family wagon has been written off, annoying but all humans involved in the collision are safe so it’s just replacing a chunk of metal. Hopefully going to end up with a slightly better spec of same car.

        Also want to replace my EdgeRouter 4 with a Raspberry Pi 4 running OpenWRT to try out mwan3 for proper failover connections. I’ve never had the EdgeRouter 4 doing failover successfully between the two WANs, and there’s little point in paying for both if I can’t utilise them.

        1. 4

          Writing all the terminal tools I use every week from scratch (scratch as in standard library only).

          First up is ls and then maybe grep.

          1. 3

            I did this years ago when I was learning C, though I only ended up implementing five or six programs from coreutils. I started with cat, and I remember having fun with ring buffers when I got to head. Good luck and have fun.

            1. 2

              Thanks!

              I went and built some (very basic) versions of grep, ls, and cat: https://github.com/healeycodes/tools

              I ended up using Go so they were pretty short programs!

          2. 3

            I’m working on a neovim plugin that supports formatting and linting. The goal is to provide a lightweight wrapper for whatever formatters and linters the user wants to run. Mostly this is an excuse to write a neovim plugin in Lua to find out in practice whether that’s better than writing vimscript. (In theory, it absolutely should be, but I’ll know more when I actually write something.)

            1. 3

              I hope to start drafting a new blog post about these older EeePCs I’ve become obsessed with and put Alpine on. I hope it turns into a usable HOWTO in order for one to replace RAM, WiFi PCIe card, and the MB fan, etc. Also just general tips handling such small screen real estate with GNU screen (copy mode is pretty powerful), lynx (for web surfing), NetSurf (if you want a GUI that can’t handle any JS), and virtual consoles. Also, a bit more on some features of cwm I’ve started using as a result (such as window labeling).

              1. 1

                Oh, neat. I owned the original Eee PC back in the day. I’ve been enamored with small form factor computers for decades. I had also previously owned a HP LX100. I’d definitely wanted a Toshiba Libretto back in the day as well.

                These days, a Chromebook with a 11in screen is handy enough to remote into my development machine. Cheap, decent battery life, lightweight, and with a big enough keyboard to be OK for touch typing.

              2. 3

                Trying to switch my mind into vacation mode. I’ve got a week off work, so probably spend it doing open source stuff. 😂

                1. 3

                  Drinking in pubs! Let’s go!

                  1. 2

                    Relaxing after a successful demo.

                    1. 2

                      Taking my last final exams before graduating! Also practicing piano, hiking, and working on reimplementing Reckless Drivin’ in Zig which I’ve been neglecting for a while.

                      1. 2

                        Printer tuneup, taxes, disk golf w/ a friend, configuring my home network + phone to connect to a VPS hosted wireshark VPN, running, and helping a friend move some things last minute

                        1. 2

                          I’m getting a new water heater because mine began leaking yesterday. So instead of probably getting my girlfriend a new laptop to replace the 2015 13” MBP with a broken screen, we’re getting hot water back. Hopefully the new unit will give us more than ~15 minutes of hot shower!

                          1. 2

                            Among other things I’ll be making some physical things for once - just some playing cards for the social game Werewolf, which I’ll be hosting next week… in Esperanto!

                            1. 2

                              Off on vacation! First trip I’ve done since that global pandemic started.

                              1. 2

                                Please do enjoy yourself! The mental health benefits of an honest to god vacation are huge :) I hope you’re going somewhere with lots of outdoor potential. The stupid freaking COVID-19 numbers are getting scary again and I just got over a moderately nasty case (sick as hell but no hospitalization) last week.

                                Have fun and stay healthy!

                              2. 1

                                Try to investigate this video playing problem in Proton; and play video games with friends.

                                1. 1

                                  Adding unit tests and the ability to have Atari 8 bit binaries browseable by collection rather than one giant un-navigable item list to Omnia Atari as well as re-homing it to AWS where I can use EFS for its storage where I don’t need to worry about running out of space or inodes.

                                  Continuing to slowly teach myself Fennel. I already love Lua but as @icefox says Fennel addresses some of the ugly bits.

                                  Also packing for a 2 day work trip to Nashville. Looking forward to that.
