The price of groceries in Canada has absolutely skyrocketed over the past six months. Everytime I go to the grocery store, I am no longer shocked at the price increase. In fact, it's almost a bit of a game finding something that hasn't gone up.
I've been thinking about this for a while. It's not really practical, but just for fun. Essentially rewriting the tools needed for a minimal Linux distro with just the kernel. I found this PyCon presentation(video on Youtube) about this very subject. Unfortunately there's no mention of it past 2006 but oh well. Another use for such a thing would like be similar to Docker but with the build process of SnackLinux.
It's with great success that I can announce SnackLinux has working arm64 build instructions, along with updated x86.
I listen to Legends of the Old West podcast, it's a western-themed episodic podcast centered around outlaws.The narrator is great, the character actions are descriptive but I'm left wanting more.
With the surge of Stable Diffusion projects, I was inspired to make something AI generated art themed.
What I ended up with is transcribing the podcast audio into text, and then generating images based off of that. Take a look below for an example.
Why look go outside and check the temperature if you can automate it and use Python?
I purchased this inexpensive wifi-enabled temperature monitor from Aliexpress for approx $20 CAD. The goal was to log the temperature and humidty throughout the seasons and make a graph at the end of the year.
I deal with large CSV at work, mostly database dumps. Google Sheets and Numbers/Excel just can't keep up with formula changes for 300k+ lines. What do we do? We use Python.
The use case here is replicating a the VLOOKUP function with a left join. We want to get the matching criteria from our referenced CSV file, but only the matching (otherwise that would be a full outer join).
Here's what our data looks like:
Sometimes during a Facetime call or watching your favorite dumb crime show on some sketchy Russian streaming site, your audio sounds like it's farting through a tin can. Sometimes choppy and not very clear, whatever audio that's playing doesn't sound right.
One way to fix it is by killing Core Audio, which is responsible for processing audio.
sudo killall coreaudiod
Quick update to SnackLinux, rolled out Linux 4.15.2 with Busybox 1.28.0. Also switched over to x86_64 only (for now at least) since it simplifies a lot of things. I removed the need to staticly link everything and get rid of that niche, since a few other smaller distros cover that (Alpine Linux for example). Again, this simplifies building packages and running into less issues.
I recently switched phones from a LG G4 to a Sony Xperia X Performance (isn't that a mouthful!), so I had a spare Android phone lying around. What better use for than to sniff some traffic!
