      This could be the day

      Xabi · Monday, 7 August, 2023 - 16:05 · 4 visibility

    Eight months (!) since I haven't had #broadband at home. Will today be the day? And if all goes well and I do get my beloved 600mb/s internet back, will I remember my #server's password or will I have to start from scratch?


    I was surprised to see an app that looked like #Movim's former Android app. Sadly it only works with one particular #Mastodon server.


    Fewer of these and more cruises every year in our waters.

      It's not being an easy week

    With temperatures around 40ºC, I'm averaging 3 hours of sleep per night.

    I'm very proud of my wooden flatpack deer that is standing next to the tree. It took many hours and it's not finished yet, I need to sand it down which is going to take looooong hours. Maybe in 2022!

      Sonic's 30th anniversary

      Xabi · Friday, 12 November, 2021 - 16:15


    Sonic for Master System turns 30 this month. It was my first game and I love it and I was very sad because I couldn't find it — the best known Sonic is the one for the MegaDrive / Genesis, which was 16-bit, but the one I wanted was the 8-bit one.

    I have already installed it on my Retropie and I forecast hours and hours of fun.

    I'm trying to fix some .js code to show the date and time properly in Basque but I don't have any JS knowledge so basically I'm looking for a volunteer.

    The piece of code that I'd like to fix is on this GitHub and it should be easy peasy.

    My approach has been:

    var dateFormats = {
    full: "y'(e)ko' MMMM'ren' d'a', EEEE",
    long: "y'(e)ko' MMMM'ren' d'a'",
    medium: "y'(e)ko' MMMM'k' d",
    short: "yy/MM/dd",

    var timeFormats = {
    full: 'HH:mm:ss zzzz',
    long: 'HH:mm:ss z',
    medium: 'HH:mm:ss',
    short: 'HH:mm'

    var dateTimeFormats = {
    full: "{{date}}, {{time}}e(t)an",
    long: "{{date}}, {{time}}e(t)an",
    medium: '{{date}}, {{time}}',
    short: '{{date}} {{time}}'

    This would be the quick and dirty solution. A more accurate approach would be:

    • years ending in "1" and "5" should be followed by 'eko'
    • years ending in 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 'ko'
    • years ending in 0:
    • — 10 30 50 70 90 100, 'eko'
    • — 20 40 60 80, 'ko'

    Let me know if you are bored :wink:

      I need a hard drive. Any advice or suggestion?

      Xabi · Sunday, 7 November, 2021 - 17:15 edit


    My (13) hard drives are all full and I'm looking for a new one but I don't know what to look for. My requirements:

    • No less than 8TB. 10TB would be even better
    • I only use it ~1 hour per day so I don't think I need NAS graded ones
    • 3,5 inch disks are OK although the less cables on my desk, the better
    • I want something that will last for years
    • My main OS is macOS
    • Ideally ±200€

    Extra info: I don't have a NAS. I have a case for a 3,5 disk, but I'm not sure it works anymore. I only had one Seagate HD and it was extremely noisy. #IT #tech
