Just read a forum post via HN that certain Cyber Power UPS’s are possibly prone to fires when they fail. Pretty sure I just bought the model they talked about a few weeks ago.

Cool cool cool. Wait no, 🔥

Twitter Mentions 

So after the initial attempt to buy and the rush of people to Mastodon, has activity generally remained higher from before that? I hope it has!

Do any of you know of any open source graphic design apps/ sites/software?

What is your avg home internet speed? Boost I'm curious to see what folks are getting around the country/world. If you don't mind posting pricing that would be awesome!

@g-love northeastern USA, getting around 100 or 150 down, and something terrible like 5 or 6 up. Think it's $90 USD monthly.

I've heard there is a company entering in our area with me almost symmetric gig fiber for about the prices, maybe slightly more. Hope that's true!

Weight lifting 

Another day, another session! Squats and strict Overhead Press.

I'm in the last two weeks of this cycle. So the reps have gone down and the intensity up.

Request for input from blind programmers 

@clayote sighted person, so not voting for the obvious reason. Glad you're asking though. I read through a GitHub issue on the prettier project discussing this exact thing. Would be great to know!

Saw a tweet saying that tabs work better than spaces when you're using a braille display

Seems logical, but this information doesn't seem to be coming from a blind person, so I thought I'd check

Which form of #Python indentation is more accessible to you?

(sighted people: don't vote, be patient)

Took a couple days with our oldest son (16) to hit some trails. We camped near trailheads as far into the Olympics as we could.

Yesterday, a 12 mile loop that took us over Mount Townsend, down to a snow covered lake, and along a rocky creek back to the car. 4,000' of elevation gain.

Today, a more leisurely 8 mile trail that follows a river.

Do hard things with your kids!! It is worth it. They'll thank you for it. And eventually they'll be the ones asking to do the hard things.

@Clifford always buy the SSD or NVMe! Power usage is fairly low compared to HDD’s which is another consideration.

You’re right though that’s pretty steep. I pretty much only buy SSD’s now, but I get where you’re coming from.

Picked up a new to me bicycle this weekend. Needs some very minor work, but I think it'll be the perfect townie setup.

Hoping to use it mainly to haul groceries , and do some fun/light cardio with the little one on board. She's into it!


My sleep got a bit thrown off this morning. Not too bad but man it's hitting me hard! Hate how sensitive my body is to sleeping and how often it gets thrown off.

Luckily my workout is tomorrow. Should be able to recover by then.

@craigmaloney @1ll173r47 came here to ask the same question. Thanks for the clarification.

@cambridgeport90 I'm unsure about if boosters are required or not by organizations.
