FUN FACT: you can set up multiple local virtual hosts in nginx. If you have a public website but want a local development version, on localhost, add entries like this to /etc/hosts:

i do it all the time
I'm going to try to get that Libreboot beta release out this weekend. I have these tasks:
1) Add a few more board configs
2) Update documentation
3) Update the deblob scripts
4) Finish panbash, my new static site generator, and modify http://libreboot.org for it
I am now vaccinated. My 2nd jab is next month.
I'm getting my 1st covid vaccine today (Pfizer). I'm 29 and for now they're only vaccinating older people but there's a surplus of vaccines in my area.
I unexpectedly received a text from my GP, offering the jab. It's today! 20 minutes ago I didn't know I'd be vaccinated today.
Naturally, I'm in a celebratory mood.
It's live! My video showing how to install osboot on a ThinkPad T430s. osboot is a coreboot distro (forked from Libreboot's build system). It provides hardware initialization and a bootloader, to boot your OS. Enjoy!
Here is the video: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=P3BuHI7Gg5w
Re-posted with a different invidious link because the first one b0rked and didn't work when trying to play the video directly in mastodon
(the temperatures are high because i'm running a stress test. CPU at 100% usage. those temperatures are normal during a stress test. I always replace thermal paste with quality Arctic MX-4 paste and do a stress test when a laptop is re-assembled)
I have just sent the author of untrunc (the one I linked) an email, to thank that person. I'm really happy that I was able to fix this corrupted mp4 file. Stay tuned for T430s video! (osboot installation tutorial)
this software fixed my broken mp4 recording: https://github.com/anthwlock/untrunc
best software ever. it really saved my bacon
untrunc is the ****BEST**** software ever. it just saved my ass. everyone: please disregard what I said. I managed to unfuck this MP4 file. see: https://github.com/anthwlock/untrunc
it takes another file as reference, with moov atom intact, and uses that to fix your broken mp4 file.
I'm doing a ThinkPad T430S video, showing how to install osboot (see: http://osboot.org).
This video is going to be insane. T430S has a WSON8 in it, like the X200T. You desolder the WSON8 and solder a SOIC8 but... stay tuned for the video! (photo shows soic-8 installed)
Just to prove I'm not full of it. This is a KCMA-D8 mainboard I'm flashing for a customer. Socketed flash. Libreboot supports it.
The customer wants 16MiB chip but I couldn't find DIP8, so I used a SOIC8 on a 208mil SOP8 to DIP8 adapter and 2.54mm headers.
Here you see the original flash chip, a 2MiB winbond chip. It's DIP8. I removed it, and inserted the 16MiB (also a winbond chip) but on the adapter board with the 2.54mm headers pins.
Nice trick for KCMA-D8/KGPE-D16 flashing (libreboot/osboot) and no DIP8 chips available to buy: solder SOIC8 onto SOP>DIP adapter. Put 2.54mm headers in breadboard, chip+adapter on that, and solder (breadboard keeps pins straight).
Slot into DIP8 socket. I do it all the time!
You *can* also just flash the default 2MiB chip (on D8/D16); remove it, put it in breadboard and flash, but I always upgrade the default 2MiB flash to 16MiB. I'm doing a KCMA-D8 for someone.
uh btw this is mastodon, not twitter lol. i copied that from my twitter, that's why it says "tweet". i meant to say toot
i have a twitter account aswell as mastodon. though in the ~6 weeks i've used mastodon, i really love it. i consider it my home
Gonna spend some time on *me*. And no, not Intel ME. Well, I'm going to spend time on that too ;)
I've spent 1 month on other people and it's time I focus on myself. Don't worry, I *will* return. Just putting this tweet out there in case people think I'm dead (I'm not).
I challenge you to read this without laughing. It had me in stitches the first time.
