Got on one of the toll highways this afternoon to make my way back to the thrift store I’d discovered last weekend… and found myself immediately stuck in traffic. After noticing that there only seemed to be traffic in a single direction - southbound - it hit me: this is Urban Weekend (a.k.a. Urban Beach Week).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_Beach_Week

The wikipedia seemingly hasn’t been updated since 2013, so it omits that weekend’s overwhelmingly violent, criminal history.

Thankfully, I wasn’t going that far.

@artandtechnic have you ever made it to Urban Ore in Berkeley , CA? They've got an amazing VHS section, it's something like 5 full height shelving units packed 2 deep with VHS tapes.

@artandtechnic If you're in the area, you might also want to check Captain Video in San Mateo. Lots of VHS there, including some beta.

FUN FACT:
if you build electronic devices which contain a raspberry pi in them, consider what will happen if one of them gets thrown out.
someone might open them up, stick the microSD card in them into a reader, and open up that tantalizing "apps.json" file which has YOUR GOD DAMN AWS KEYS? IN UNENCRYPTED PLAIN TEXT?

it has been zero days since foone has opened up some old tech and accidentally gotten information she was not supposed to have.

foone,
@foone@digipres.club avatar

It was literally the first file I opened

I did a little more searching. This raspi was running balenaOS which is a docker-containers-on-raspi thing.

Fun fact: If you pass environment options to a docker image you're building, they get stored in the config.v2.json file for that container!

So there's ANOTHER COPY OF THE AWS KEYS HERE!

anyway this is what I have:
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/ari-introduces-wellness-detector-jonathan-burke/

Good news: That company/product doesn't seem to be active anymore. So these keys have almost certainly expired and been invalidated. I'm just gonna assume that and not check because I don't want to get in trouble for "hacking"

I keep forgetting that I hate keyboards

this makes it a bit of a problem given that's like 1/3rd of everything I do

foone,
@foone@digipres.club avatar

@joshourisman oh I've got one of those somewhere.

it's... weird. I'm not a huge fan

foone,
@foone@digipres.club avatar

okay I finally found some keycaps (and then borrowed some more from another set) so I can use my main keyboard.

I don't really like these keycaps (for their feel, mainly) but at least they're labeled, mostly.

My hobby? Disassembling and reassembling 3d printers.

Most people just call that "3D printing" but I want to be truthful to which part of the hobby I spend most of my time doing

North Carolina's House has rejected the anti-mask bill! The bill will now go through a compromise process, which could include re-adding a health exemption.

More work needs to be done, but this shows that advocacy is making a difference. Keep going!

binary keyboard that supports full unicode but it's just 21 flip switches and an 'enter' key

@1000millimeter @Jmj @brooke @NanoRaptor seven bit is more than enough: keyboards rarely have more than 128 keys.

@foone@digipres.club avatar

@1000millimeter @Jmj @brooke @NanoRaptor It takes ASCII, yeah. it has to translate it into letter+shift because of how PC keyboards work

So there's always the debate between QWERTY and alphabetical keyboards, but everyone is missing the obvious way to solve this disagreement.

There's no reason the alphabet HAS to be in that order. It's arbitrary, and English would work almost completely the same if the alphabet was in a different order, you know?

So, let's just put the alphabet in QWERTY order!
It'd solve all our problems from Q to M.

@donkey @bigzaphod good point, hex would change too!

@jamie fun fact: I work in a library! and I do library stuff for a hobby!

so I know exactly how much chaos this would cause, and that's part of why I suggested it :)

@seyye that's very good! thanks!
