Next in my #introduction posts featuring Stuff I’ve Made:

This is the Chernobyl Dice: a Cold War era themed quantum RNG. It uses the clicks of a Geiger counter nestled next to an array of uranium glass marbles to generate random bits displayed on Nixie tubes.

This is a *disgustingly fair* dice and I’ve run the tests to prove it, lol

Growing up I was often “the smart kid.” The first time I got a B in a class, in 8th grade, I cried. I kind of put it at the core if my identity.

I don’t know when I realized I had completely stopped caring whether anyone thought I was smart or not, but it was an incredibly liberating realization.

Sometimes it feels like corporations kind of tricked open source & free software & even anarchist developers into thinking they had to build world-scale software as well.

It's ok to build something small that just works well for you, your friends, your community.

A ransomware group gives back a decryptor to one hospital and folks are like "Well hey there's some common decency."

To quote the dril tweet, you do not in fact have to hand it to them.

Don't forget to update the footer of your website!

Semi-regular reminder you can put down a book you’re not feeling at any time. For any reason. Even if it’s just “fine” and you could probably finish it. Even if your friends love it.

Even if it’s your first book of the new year.

Wishing all of you a catty mew year 2023! 🥂🎆

Please. I’m begging you. Not every tutorial needs to be a video.
