Now I have a long todo list from seeing ways to improve Bink for people who aren't me.
I put together a chunky controller, too. It looks and feels like I found it in the desert.
It went ok.

Narrator: It didn't.
I'm thinking about making this wee lappie into a matrix node (matrix.org) with a riot.im web client, using ngrok to give it a stable public endpoint. I have Slack group fatigue (so many!) and am generally interested in federated networks. I worry that the docs say little to nothing about moderation of harassment and abuse, though.
Shout out to every meetup and conference organizer. Every collaborator who jumps into issue trackers and constantly answers questions. Every docs writer. Every person crafting and scaling project processes. Every person who QAs (pre-!)releases as they go out.
I found instructions for stopping it from going to sleep when the lid closes so now I can tuck it away and treat it like a wee server with a ~10 hour battery backup. I have an SSD that I'm going to attach for bulk storage. Next I want to find/make a web-based photo library so that I can escape Google Photos.
The only slightly hacky bit was removing a screw to turn off write protection of the bios. It required just a screwdriver but for folks who aren't used to poking around inside electronics it could be a bit stressful.
I still thrash around a bit with lifetime notations so I need to read more about them and look at more OSS Rust code to see how more experienced folks use them.
Eternal newbie. Tall with floofy hair.
