Managed to get some #eclipse shots in-between the clouds.
Rewrote the code generating https://www.movielandmarks.com in #golang and switched to using #tmdb for the poster images since amazon links stopped working. My only complaint is that the JSON parser in Go doesn't give very useful error messages when I mess up the JSON, so I have to cat it through 'python3 -m json.tool' to check it.

I swear the Harmony remote is a proprietary pile of crap. I just want to add a device and I need: an app signed with an expired key. An old version of Java. A new password. And it *still* doesn’t work.

@nbering If I'm reading https://github.com/golang/go/wiki/Modules#releasing-modules-v2-or-higher correctly you can either make a /v2 subdirectory, or add /v2 to the go.mod path and your imports but it doesn't need to move under /v2/

@flex_lm I'd chose the flame thrower option myself :)
This Prusa MK3 is an amazing piece of engineering. Assembly went almost perfectly (one wrong nut, a couple of holes needed some extra cleanup) with the calibration coming back perfect. #prusa

@R10T Mostly because I felt like the site was due for a change. The small issue that pushed me over was trying to figure out how to stuff a Mastodon social icon into the mg theme I was using. It uses font-awesome and a bunch of css magic I couldn't unravel or figure out how to update. The Hugo theme I'm using, mainboard, needs some tweaks but has been easy in comparison.
We have 4.5k followers on Mastodon. If each gave just $2, we would double our fundraising goal the day.
Tor is vital for resisting tracking, surveillance, and censorship online.
If we get just a few thousand more dollars today, we'll even release a surprise.
Help us get there: https://torproject.org/donate/donate-sin-oc-md
