Pinned toot

Since I pushed the self-destruct button on my other domain and deleted every toot and information from it, I should probably do another . (or )

Hi, I'm Espen, born and still lives in the nothern part of Norway. I'm linux enthusiast, developer, administrator and a DIY kind of guy when it comes to internet services.

At the dayjob I'm involved in providing providing populated areas with fiberaccess and remote areas with a radio link, and making sure all areas have access to electricity.

When creating my tools, I usually turn to Python but have lately begun to feel that the spirit of Go is very much similar, so I should take a close look when I can find the time. But I'm very much a jack of all trades, goverend by whatever I find interesting at the time. As a result, many things never see the light of day and one project is replaced by another. If it can be done on a computer, chances are I'd like to tinker with it at some point.

I also have a healthy interest for retro technology and hardware, and can often be found trying to get older software to work, and recently got hold of an old C64 and Amiga 600 which require some TLC. I have been following the Demoscene for a long time and am enthusiastic about it, both the old stuff and the new stuff.

I can't draw or make music, so I try persuading the computer to do it for me. Love podcasts that do well-told stories about interesting things or tech, like Radiolab, Reply All or Darknet Diaries. Also a fan of humoristic podcasts like "No Such Thing As A Fish" and "My Dad Wrote A Porno".

When bored or need some private relaxation time, I play videogames.
Also passionate about privacy and encryption. I like the thought of having secure communication cahnnels with people and the theory behind things like web of trust, but find it challenging because most people just don't care.

I could probably list a lot more but this would do.

It is always a pleasure to meet new people, so don't be a stranger.

That's half an hour ago if you're counting in UTC. The next even hundred million seconds will be in November 2023, so it's not a super rare occurrence. After all, it's happened 16 times in the 50 years since @0. πŸ˜€

Damn you "Technology Connections" for getting me hooked to Anders Enger Jensen

Been messing with today, funny that version 1.0 was released right after I started fiddling with it. Anyway, so far I have failed running, it tries to get /front/index.html which should be there but and then proceeds into what seems to be an infinite series of exceptions, with new exeptions in the exception-handler, while I'm stuck staring at a Server Error 500 from nginx. Oh well

Might try again tomorrow

Interesting. A boost ticket in last night from mastodon.social, apparently made over a month ago.

Done a longer capture run of MS-DOS productions. When all the footage of me messing about was cut out, I had about 75 minutes left. It will be feeding my "Retro" channel for a while.

Wondering if I should be capturing some oldschool productions, and in that case what. Suggestions?

Discovered that MIDI was something my system was not ready to handle out of the box. Been battling with numerous configurations, wikis, timidity++ for a while until I finally found success with fluidsynth
