Pinned toot

Finally got myself a , the Ender 3 v2

Build quality feels good, took me roughly 1 hour and 20 minutes to build, then took me like another 20 minutes to level the bed(as i also replaced the springs), and after a movie break, 10 minutes to start printing(had to find the boat model)

The print is literally the first print without any modifications to the default settings, and im kinda impressed.

Was trying to print something that had a lot of small parts in it, causing a lot of retractions in a short span of time, and it caused the extruder to EAT INTO the filament..
The worst part, ot only happened 3 hours into the print…

Keeping on posting stuff I , yesterday i printed a toothpaste squasher(?), to extract all tge toothpaste from the tube, I also printed a bigger handle “addon” because the original handle was too small(and reprinting the entire handle takes time, compared to the 30 minutes for the addon).

Additionally, it seems that switching from the “stock” pla that came with the to the better ones i bought with the fixed the only printing issue i had(which was under extrusion sometimes, leaving holes in the print)
I think the stock pla was just slipping or something(and prob wasnt pure)

-ed a caliper(because why not), and it is surprisingly somewhat accurate, also ran out of the bit of white filament i had mid print so i had to pause and switch, i have another roll of white but i want to use black for the other stuff and i think it looks better(although weird that it changes colours mid print.

It also took 7 bloody hours(which i was not prepared for mentally)

Updated my ‘s source code to make use of my new injector.
Also wrote a little “story” about it

Fun with Concurrency in Rust 

Hm :rust_thinking: ...when I run my multi-threaded Rust lib on my Notebook (two cores with Hyperthreading) everything works fine.

When I run it in #GitLab CI's hosted runners, it deadlocks everytime at the exact same test (runners only have one thread).😬

This shows how important CI or, more general, testing in multiple different environments is!

Not everyone has a multicore computer!

#Rust #RustLang #Concurrency #Deadlock #CI #ContinuousIntegration #UnitTest

Just made an html command injector using

Now i can push bash commands into an html file.
Why? So i could make my website auto update everytime i build/serve/update it(auto updating stuff like header, footer, adjacent files and such) and also allowing me to use the power of unix shell in html files…

Quitting gmail 

You can just ghost gmail without closing your account.

1. You'll need a new email address. Maybe your ISP provides one? A friend with a domain name? Proton mail?

2. Set google to forward everything to your new address.

3. Set an autoreply saying what your new address is.

4. As it becomes relevant, unsubscribe from email lists and then resubscribe with your new address.

5. Move your accounts to also use your new address. Go at whatever pace works for you.

@Wraptile @JonYoder 3/ "Not fit for" != "never used for". Returning to the #C example, I think C is not fit for modern development, now that we have #Rust. That doesn't mean it's impossible to use C, or that nobody does; just that, from a purely technical view, having to manage memory manually and deal with all the other numerous pitfalls of C isn't worth it TODAY. Nobody's going to rewrite Apache in Rust tomorrow, but if somebody were starting a new web server tomorrow, C shouldn't be chosen.

Interesting, Brave Search reads your browser history when using Firefox.

Test:

Step 1) clear cache, history and cookies

Step 2) Search "nitter"
You should see results for niter

Step 3) close all tabs, in current tab go to nitter.net

Step 4) open new tab and search nitter again, first result will be nitter.net

If you need an experienced and shiny #rust developer then hire my car 😞

Managed to finally fix it!

So apparently the arch installation of comes with a "multilang-error" config file, which redefines all the possible error codes and is INCLUDED BY DEFAULT!

Abyway, removing it(commenting the include line) made my file to take effect so now my website has an actual 404 error page

Just watched the live action sonic movie, and i gotta say im a bit impressed.

First of all, it was a good movie imo
Second, they really knew their limitations(by reducing the amount of interactions of people with sonic, which works great for their advantage)
And third, i first saw sonic in a tv show before i saw both sonic and mario in video games, so i always had more connection to sonic, and while mario games are better, sonic always felt related(as a character from a show i liked as a kid) which made its games more appealing(consider how mario doesnt exists, at least as far as i know, outside of the games), so i guess i prefer the sonic franchise better beacuase i dont really care about both's games?

Also robotnic was amazing!

----- maybe spoilers ahead but not really -----

Also that ending(fight in the end and ending scenes), really completed the movie for me

question I asked @Pixificial and thought of sharing here:
What is the "correct" approach (or mindset) that should come when players find a weird/exploitable/gamebreaking bug(or unintended consequence of a system), or something the devs don't want you to do?

For example:

- In the witcher 3, players found that they can just farm the cows in the starting zone to get infinite cash.

- In titanfall 2 multiplayer, if you try to go out of bounds it will count down and kill you if you don't go back in bounds after ~5 seconds.

Just a disclaimer, this is solely a game design question for the sake of thought experiments.
Also i know this question is a bit vague and can have different answers depends on the game in mind, but just bear with me and say what you think

I hate the devaluation of the word "community" by corporations, non-movements and money grabbers. It doesn't inherently mean a strong bond and care in between participating peers anymore. What are some alternatives?

Dont know why, but my apache server does not want to use the error 404 html file im giving it, or the link to that file, or even a normal error string...
