This is a small sort of blog where I (very rarely) post stuff. Mostly small bits of information that i’d like to remember in the future or make public.
- trip to vladimir and suzdal (2021-07-11)
- on cops and anarchism (2021-06-23)
Yet another Twitter/Mastodon thread that grew into a more verbosely explained blog post.
While I don’t consider myself an anarchist, I find a lot of their positions interesting and I’ve had a largely good impression of anarchists as a community online. This blog post is a reflection on the role of policing, as informed by my view of the anarchist community.

- linux framebuffer palette switching (2021-05-26)
Just like graphical terminals such as
urxvt, the Linux framebuffer has an option to change the built-in palette. Distributions like Ubuntu use it to make the palette look nicer during bootup.

- on property (and intellectual property) (2021-05-04)
So I was thinking: the anarchist view that “property is theft” is definitely at least somewhat true. After all, if society started with the idea that nothing belongs to anybody, that everything is in the commons, then for property to appear, whatever was before it had to be “stolen” from the commons.
And this is just talking about the most graceful possible example. In case of colonialist expansion, things were often literally stolen, and people literally enslaved, from whichever lands were colonized.
By that logic, property is quite literally theft. But what about “intellectual property”? After all, there’s no limit on what someone can create, right?

- toki pona designs for acnh (2021-01-06)
This is a page listing some of my ACNH posters for movies, games and such that feature sitelen pona writing, along with what they’re referring. When multiple titles are given, the option written first is what the translation is taken from (e.g. the Terranigma one is based on the game’s Japanese title).
- trying to do assembly-level debugging in gdb (2020-11-02)
GDB seems to have been clearly made with source-level debugging in mind, the kind where the source code of the program is available. Sometimes this is not the case, or you just don’t want to bother looking for the source code. Here I’ll put a bunch of useful commands.
- Запуск игры Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst при помощи Wine (2020-08-02)
Время от времени я поигрываю в старую многопользовательскую экшн-РПГ “Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst”. Она до сих пор отлично работает на Windows, но чтобы она так же хорошо работала в Wine (через Lutris), нужны дополнительные шаги.
- Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst on Wine (2020-08-02)
Occasionally I play the old multiplayer action-RPG “Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst”. On Windows, it works fine, but to make it work better on Linux (via Lutris), some extra steps may be needed.
