Two months of private diary blogging

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

More than two months ago, I decided I should try using my blogging software for journaling. Every day, I create a new private post with a few bullet points about the day: what I did during the day, how I felt, what I thought about. On some days there are more points, on some days just a few short ones.

Raspberry Pi 400

Published on in 🔗 Links

The Raspberry Pi Foundation launched a new product: the Raspberry Pi 400. It’s basically a keyboard with a modified Raspberry Pi 4 board included. It kind of reminds me of the Commodore 64. I’m from after this era of “home computers”, but in the basement there’s still one from my father. Maybe I should take a closer look at it, it’s certainly exciting to see a computer from a time when the subject of computers was just coming up and people would have thought you were crazy if they knew what technical specifications smartphones have today.
