Heads up if you have a semi-private IRC channel with bridged users in it. Once the channel logs arrive at the Matrix server hosting the bridge, every Matrix user can join this channel and the Matrix sever will happily provide the complete channel logs without anyone on the IRC side ever noticing.

(tested with matrix.org & freenode)

This is a HUGE privacy concern and I donโ€™t understand why anyone would consider using Matrix. Itโ€™s flawed in so many ways.

Generally speaking producing a product in the hundreds is fucking hard. I can hand assemble a few. Economy of scales allows me to mass produce cheaply, but making only a few hundred? Pain in the ass.

Okay, so I have this idea of building an enhanced darkroom timer for myself to control safe lights and the enlarger. Sounded simple enough at first, but if I wanted to turn it into a tangible product the BOM quickly skyrocketed. But I guess thatโ€™s part of the challenge. Maybe this could be a good first product for my yet to be founded company. :D

Figured I could post about my adventures here. Hereโ€™s my main camera, a Nikon F4 from 1988. The first professional auto-focus camera from Nikon. It weighs a ton and is rock solid. If I donโ€™t feel like carrying it, I also have a few Canon A and T cameras laying around, but thatโ€™s a topic for another toot.

Spoiler: Iโ€™m also testing my new Mastodon setup so I had to toot something to see if other instances can fetch everything correctlyโ€ฆ :eisfee:
