Some successful joy-con modding. I also replaced the buckle locks while I had them apart and it definitely feels more sturdy when I am playing it undocked. Just goes to show that even with the latest electronics, that we are all told is too complicated for anyone other than the manufacturer to repair, there are still a lot of fixes a home user with the right tools can do.

I’m a generalist with 15 years professional experience and engineering/computer science degrees. Full-stack Ruby, ReasonML most recently with a fair bit of Rust on the side.

Looking for a role in Melbourne AU or remote friendly. Would love to work a bit lower down the stack, systems level, embedded, OS, networking for example. Want to work for a business that values quality and correctness, not just deadlines and piling on technical debt.

Pls boost for reach 🙏

"You've got another suitor?"
"They're just visiting."
"You get a lot of... visitors."
"It's nice."
"You're getting a lot, is all I'm saying."

"Hmpf! I won't change," said Venus.
"Of course not," said Mars.

Canonical extends Ubuntu Linux 18.04 LTS support to 10 years!

These news elevate Ubuntu to even more enterprise-friendly Linux distribution. LTS= Long Term Support.

Businesses care about stability; the latest and greatest features not so much.

They care about once something is set up and working that it keeps working for as long as possible.

Smart, Canonical, now that Winblows 10 just keeps destroying itself.
