I think realistically a micro container like this needs to cost the consumer only $0.15/month if at all feasible

@mckinley Based on your previous comment I think I need to reduce the price to a round $0.20

@mckinley Yea the idea is micro costs to the consumer. No one really does this, that I know of, which is frustrating if you want to run a few small things without the overhead of a whole server or the operational efforts.

@mckinley Most little web apps, websites, static sites, whatever run perfectly fine with good performance on just 100mCores, a lot of what I run only has between 100m-500m of CPU allocated to it.

@pratikbaid3 is looking for a few small projects to add to his contractor/freelance CV and has reached out to me to see if he could do a bit of work on the Yarn.social mobile app. He's done work before in the past and has done a pretty decent job.

Two projects we've discussed:

- Flutter upgrade and cleanup, ensuring the mobile app builds successfully with the latest Flutter (_which breaks all the time 🤦‍♂️_)
- A UI/UX Redesign of the Mobile App with a Bottom Nav Bar layout. This would end up having something like `Timeline | Mentioned | Profile` -- Maybe it _could_ also have "Search" too if I somehow found the time to add an appropriate search endpoint to the API.

What do y'all think? 🤔

@movq Well it's screwed with my working hours somewhat, but this year I've decided to just "not give a shit"™ and just get up at the normal time and start at the time I had been starting work the past 6 months, 8.30am. In practise it probably means I end up working a bit longer for 1/2 the year, but oh well, at least I don't have to fiddle with my alarm clock ⏰

@movq Yeah I immediately thought of this when you asked, because we use eBPF-based tools in Kubernetes clusters. It's very powerful stuff and you can do a lot very cheaply with it, including tying packets to processes.

Hmm, three war helicopters clattered past today. It was (and still is) very sunny and there's just a little wind. The 21°C sun on the back felt pleasant. In the forest we encountered two dead mice on the paths, they might have been dropped by birds. https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2024-04-12/

Just a few minutes into my walk I saw a raven chopping up a slow worm in three parts. :-( I rescued the reptile as best as what you can call rescue in that state. Crazy how the the tail and middle part kept on twisting hard for minutes. I didn't see where the raven went hiding, so I can only hope it did not reattack after the slow worm went its way and I left the scene.

The small forest pond was covered in pollen, looked like a liming truck went by. And the other one with the duck was really oily. Way more than last time. Didn't look healthy at all. :-(

And, of course, at some point the directory items should be clickable, so you can navigate the tree as usual. That’s much less interesting than delving into threading, though. 😅

After a bug in the Open Watcom OS/2 resource compiler has been fixed (imagine that – they still fix bugs related to OS/2! 🤯💚), I was able to make some more progress with the OS/2 GUI version of my little disk usage tool. It now has a menu bar and a dialog to open another directory:

https://movq.de/v/2ea508ef9a/MVI_7479.MOV.mp4

The video includes the ZMODEM transfer process of the 50 kB `.EXE` file from my laptop. It’s a bit lengthy, but I kept it in for nostalgia. 😅

Next up is probably multithreading: Do the disk scanning in a background thread so the UI doesn’t freeze. (This is running on a Compact Flash card, a real hard disk would be much slower.)

@movq Being lazy is what I did today. :-)

That's a bitter, but true résumé. I'm pretty sure that I first heard of the Saharan air layer only a few years ago. I would be very surprised if my knowledge is more than a decade old. This could have been a big enough topic to be covered in geography lessons, but it doesn't ring a bell. Just like with everything, there is always something "new" to learn.

At least it's been a thing since July 1997. :-D I wouldn't be surprised if this goes on for thousands of years. The German Wikipedia article on that matter doesn't explicitly say anything about the time scale, but reading it my assertion corroborates. There is a recorded event in the year 1901.

The kick is, if you want to borrow money, all interests are super high (10%+). You can't "borrow to invest " in a savings account.

@prologic Goldman Sachs, through Apple, is giving 4.4% on $100K (minimum). Four months rolling CDs in our bank are giving up to 5.10% on $50K, and up. Government treasure bills are around that, some a little less, some a little more.

@bender That's precisely what I'm talking about. Investing in good businesses that are well established. If they also produce an income in the form of a distribution or dividend, that that's even better. YOu can have some tax benefits too if you do it right. But the trap? (I think) is falling into this false sense of security of thinking you can leverage up to the bank's LVR (Loan to Value Ratio) only to get caught up. Best to be conservative so you can take the wild swings and obviously diversity.

@bender No I meant like a "savings account" 🤣 You guys (us) are lucky I guess? A savings account here in Oz barely gets you 0.35%pa to 1.5%pa depending on how much money you have in it (0-$10k, $10-20k, $20-$30k, up to $50k)

@prologic can you be more specific? Arguably, borrowing to buy real estate might be worth it. Buying a successful, established, business might be worth it. Both are incoming producing assets.
