rhizome is a tumblelog inspired by Leah Neukirchen's Trivium.

it mostly features links I think are cool, but might on occasion be a place for sharing things I'm up to that don't really warrant a more fleshed out discussion.

  • Should we stop?, a really beautifully put together piece thinking about how maybe the world must change before software is good.
  • The Default Router, an article about how the Linksys WRT54G got famous.
  • 90ssamplecds, a collection of questionably legal sample packs popular with producers in the 1990s. Drink each time you hear the Amen break being passed off as a royalty-free sample!
  • ledger, a double-entry accounting system. I recently start using it after some time using Firefly III, which is quite nice but I was curious about plain-text accounting stuff.

2020-W47

lookie:

  • catclock, an adorable xclock fork with a cat…
  • unix50.org lets you ssh into old UNIX systems going all the way back to UNICS, from the summer of ‘69.
  • The Unix Command Language, the first paper ever published about the Unix shell. written by a certain ken thompson in 1976.
  • usand, an unshare(1)-based sandbox.

things I'm up to:

  • I started this lil blog thing.

  • I got ahold of The C Programming Language and 21st Century C, and I'll hopefully be reading it while working on some C utilities for some Mutiny work. I've got some vague experience working with C when it comes to patching other people's projects, but not much in terms of writing from scratch.

  • Hopefully I will participate in Advent of Code for the first time this year?
