Weeklog for Week 14: April 01 to April 07


I'm thinking about adding a Bluetooth interface to one of my micropython projects. It seems possible, but bluetooth is such a mess that it's hard to even see what it can do, much less what one should do.
Also, Mozilla will not support WebBT, as they outline on their positions page.

I've had to do a lot of kubectl stuff this week and the command line interface for it is both good and bad. It is good because it'll show you everything, in whatever format you want to see. It is bad because all the other functions necessary for working tabular data are just not there -- just you try sorting output descending, and the only answers will be grep or awk or tail or tac or sort or some very simple script solution.
What I really actually kind-of want is some sort of SQL-for-cliand don't tell me that this is awk, because it isn't, where I can simply do something along the lines of kubectl get pods | where (restarts > 0 or age < 100m) | order by age desc. That should be possible. I am this close to just writing myself such a tool, so I guess I'll put it on the list as "side project #952".


Mozilla has a page showing their positions on web standards.


Libraries, programming, etc


  • Astroneer again with the guys: this game is so different from what we played five years ago, but it's still the same game. It's fantastic to see a small indie do such a great job with their product. I want to play it all the time now. 10/10
  • 4D golf, released recently, is such a weird gameFor a slightly more discrete multidimensional game, see 5D chess with multiverse time travel. I flutter between "there is no way anyone can understand this" and "this is obvious and I'm wondering whether I'm misunderstanding anything". I'll have to put in some more time to see if I really get it, or if I'm just completely missing the point.
