Ok, I've found a Palm OS 4 image viewer that works. A printing app that can capture the screen and print it and has a SiPix A6 driver. I think this might actually work. Working on acquiring a SiPix pocket printer and PalmPix camera accessory. The prints may be absolutely terrible but it will be fun to try. Plus the SiPix A6 also works with linux.

These are not impressive photos at all. But these were taken in VERY low light and this is quite a significant improvement from a year ago.

I wrote a study for the @fsfe on the #sustainability of #software. For those of you who miss the time for the whole read, I recommend to concentrate on the five core concepts about "What can politics and society do for a more sustainable digitization?": fsfe.org/freesoftware/sustaina

SoundTouch, a library which both Mixxx and Tenacity depend on, got banned from GitLab.com (gitlab.com/soundtouch/) without explanation which broke vcpkg builds for Mixxx. I emailed the maintainer and he followed my suggestion to move it to Codeberg: codeberg.org/soundtouch/soundt

The most important thing I think our (NZ) government should be doing is to publish all their communications via open standards. POSSE!

Make sure their routine operations are creating opportunities for kiwis (and others) to innovate! Diversify!

It's fine to reach out to people on Facebook, but don't make that the primary communication channel.

I could draw nuances (it'll eventually need to be said API standards don't provide these benefits like data standards do), but that's too in the weeds.

Mozilla’s now director of public policy once asked me, with a straight face, why I was giving them a hard time and holding Mozilla to a higher standard: “we’re just another Silicon Valley tech company.”

But that’s not what you tell people publicly, is it, Mozilla?

Still, it’s time y’all got this.

Mozilla is a half-billion-dollar for-profit corporation – whose CEO makes >$3M/yr – that has a foundation do its PR.

search.marginalia.nu/ I think I kind of love this search engine that optimizes for pages with lots of text? Like it feels *startlingly* like searching the web did twenty years ago.

This is another Dreamscape that I made. It was a scene that I encountered in a dream a few years ago. The image left such a strong impression that it never left me. I don't know it's meaning, it's after all an image from the depths of the mind that lies beyond conscious experience.

Every day I struggle to remember that modern computers are mind-bendingly powerful‡ because I keep encountering web pages that use 100% CPU and a GB of ram to display two paragraphs of text.

‡ My aging laptop is literally millions of times more powerful than my first computer.

It is done! :O Literally all in a day's work XD Though I had a few breaks watching Netflix for an hour here and there.

Bad lamplight pics, I'll take better pics in daylight tomorrow ^.^
