Just got back home after a long day at the being me factory, and as always, it was a long and arduous shift.

Work was good this week. Recorded and produced a podcast episode about crypto (yes, the BitCoin and BlockChain stuff, not cryptography).

Got sick with some gastrointestinal infection: Not as bad as covid, but still no recommendation.

Got the stable diffusion model running on my MacBook Air. Installing grpcio only worked after setting some environment variables:

CFLAGS="-I /opt/homebrew/opt/openssl/include" LDFLAGS="-L /opt/homebrew/opt/openssl/lib" GRPC_PYTHON_BUILD_SYSTEM_OPENSSL=1 GRPC_PYTHON_BUILD_SYSTEM_ZLIB=1 pip install -r requirements.txt
Maybe I'm just bad at coming up with interesting prompts, but I would guess about 10% of the generated images are interesting in some sense. I put some examples below in the out of context images section.

Back to normal work, which is fun, too.

Started a mouse delivery side business. The catching part works great and now I'm looking for new customers. Do you need some mice? I already talked to a bird of prey at a nearby park. Maybe there's an arbitrage opportunity.

Created a new repository holding a template for new Django projects / apps.

Recorded and produced a new Podcast Episode about Ansible. Had to learn that streaming 48Khz 24bit FLAC audio to AirPods is too much for the Bluetooth bandwidth. At first, I thought the recording was broken, but then realized it was just a Bluetooth glitch, phew.

Did some preparation for a Python training course next week (setting up a JupyterHub instance, preparing a HedgeDoc installation).  Also, normal work as usual until we got evacuated because of a bomb disposal (a 500kg bomb from the second world war was found a few hundred meters down the street).

Progress on having a landing page where people can create podcasts/blogs:

  • Did some infrastructure work to be able to use a Python installation via pyenv on production
  • ...

  • HedgeDoc | write and share markdown
  • Excalidraw | Virtual whiteboard for sketching hand-drawn like diagrams. Collaborative and end-to-end encrypted.
  • Donut on Hugging Face / Donut on GitHub | I've done things like this with tesseract getting much better results. But I'm really happy to see people starting to use transformers for problems like this. Very promising.
