Some days I look at the timeline and think about getting this tattooed on my back:

The second camera is pointed at the drive-thru line, between the payment window and the order window. When the correct vehicle intercepts line of sight of this camera, a message will be broadcast/ shouted out in the form of "(username), (number of calories in order) calories, really?"

My art project consists of two cameras and a raspberry pi, and all relevant cabling. The first camera is connected to the pi directly, and runs OCR software. This first camera is pointed directly at the McDonald's interactive order sign. If a customized username is detected, then it will parse all elements of the order.

In my manditory business class at Community College (the two year degree, nit the four year) I drew a cube on the whiteboard once and people were impressed. One point perspective. No ruler. *Impressed*. This is one of the few things I am regularly forced to remember.

I get to replace an absolute layout with css grid tomorrow. And if I do it right, nobody ever notices.

So I can properly limit the size of an error/notice message.

Please someone give me a ridiculous photoshop layout to implement. It's the one thing I miss from advertising.

They didn't like an artist I've commissioned a few times.

I mean hey, I can still appreciate if the content is the only thing that truly dissappears

Someone there (which I realize is not saying much) apparently reported me to the FBI once... and then scream-pm'd me on Twitter saying that he had. As in, wishing me off to jail.

Real hero, that

You ever look at your copyright-1991 copy of IZZI and think "I could brute force that"

...well not this second, but I'm getting there. It's like, (64 * 4)! combinations, so it's not trivial

well, the `gpio-key` dtoverlay on raspbian is pretty awesome!! I hadn't realized how quick it could be to wire up some buttons and get keyboard-like behavior.

dtoverlay=gpio-key,active-low=true,gpio=17,label=Arcade1,keycode=2
^^ makes GPIO 17 an active-low "1" key

list of input codes:

how to use the dtoverlay:

Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.
