This internet radio station which streams "the hidden activity of a freshwater pond" using DIY hydrophones (underwater microphones) attached to a floating solar-power system seems pretty Merveilles! https://www.zachpoff.com/artwork/pondstation/ I haven't been able to listen live yet due to time differences, but the archives are really interesting.
Looks like there will be no #XMPP Office Hours tomorrow unless someone wants to sign up at the last minute? Demos, talks, round table discussions, or anything else you think it would be useful for the community to know are welcome!
💌 I like email. There is no expectation that it is answered quickly, so I can check it once a day, and only on workdays. It's good both for short answers and long-form discussions, with one person or many. It's federated and at least partially decentralised. There's a client serving all kinds of needs, from phones to the command line.
Taking a friend for their first #backpacking trip. They're nervous so I'm thinking something relatively easy, 2 nights only, preferably a loop (unless it's in NE GA where I know enough people to get a ride). Good trail suggestions?

You also would like to give a talk? Info:
I keep seeing "Joe Biden has been president for X days but <insert big problem> is still a thing" and I'm getting rather sick of it. I'm no Biden fan, but what does that even mean? Yes, there is still a crisis at the border (or pick your crisis) but children are not being separated from their families and on day 1 there were executive orders to start addressing it. Push for change where it's needed, but people ostensibly on the left need to stop the "both sides are just as bad" nonsense.
Talking shop: Go and XML
Just separating out the tokenization, validation, and marshaling/unmarshaling parts into three different layers would make it more testable and readable, making issues easier to spot. It would also make it possible to encode a struct to a stream of tokens instead of bytes, which would greatly increase the speed of things that need to do that right now, and we could make the input/output stable across multiple encode/decodes, which would prevent downstream security issues.
Cooperator , Atlantan, probably wants to be out backpacking ⛺🥾 or mountain biking 🚵.
