Daaamn. It’s *August* 29th. Why is it so cold all of a sudden? 🥶
Oh, it must be because **String Freeze** just started!

If anyone has some programming contract work they need done, please let me know. I have experience with Rust, Python, C, Go, Java, and JavaScript, and I primarily do frontend work. I can create designs if needed.

Well this must be one of the most USian things I've seen for a while:

Illuminated models Mark I:

Card isn't that solid, LEDs are bright. Walls shouldn't glow but they do. Oops.

Wires stop the model sitting flat (this isn't on a baseboard). Maybe try ribbon next time.

Good news is it works and nothing got burnt

vscode asking me if I trust the authors of a workspace consisting of a single text file…

I am the only person to have touched it

…so that'll be a no
