@_xhr_ Thanks for publishing that great article about installing OpenBSD on Pinebook Pro. Have you, by any chance, gotten the internal SD card reader to work yet?

Negative interest rates just affect central banks, right?? No. Today I got this email from one of my banks... Negative interest rates are real. Government money is forcing you to consume and wreck the environment. Buy #Bitcoin. Think long term 🌱
Bitcoin is the most natural money there is 🌱 It’s in direct opposition to forced money (by governments). It’s aligned with time and nature because it’s scarce and new Bitcoins can’t be manufactured.
Bitcoin is discouraging consumerism and short-term thinking. Bitcoin is money for long-term and sustainable thinking.
Do you agree? Why, or why not?
This in an interesting article. As the environment crisis continues without any real solutions, I keep coming back to nuclear power as being part of the solution.
First, down the valley... Then, up again!
Chinese Alibaba is interesting. They’ve built a new RISC-V processor that’s faster than most ARM processors. And with the RISC-V architecture being completely open source, Alibaba is possibly looking to open source this implementation as well! #china #opensource #hardware #alibaba https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Alibaba-XT910-RISC-V-Speed
Open source hardware and processing is making steady progress! QEMU just released improved support for RISC-V emulation which makes it easier to experiment with: https://www.qemu.org/2020/08/11/qemu-5-1-0/

Just ordered the motherboard for a 24-core #ARM build server I will be assembling. Will be used for the OS builds I’m running. Was a while ago I built a computer from scratch. I should blog about this...
One thing I love with the fediverse, and Mastodon in particular, is that discovering new communities feel a lot more organic.
It's kind of like venturing out and discovering new places, but on the net instead of meatspace :)
A whole new world of small communities just opened up for me this morning when I discovered https://fosstodon.org
