For some reason this amused me.
Installed CUPS on a Pi and connected a Zebra thermal printer (4"x6" postage labels), and as if by magic it appears as a printer on my phone. Cool.

Agreed

QT rsmck: In a modern society this disparity is unacceptable. If live events canโ€™t take place, worship canโ€™t take place and vice-versa. The virus does not discriminate based on your religious belief - what happened to separation of church and state?!

Iโ€™ve been having fun double checking my 1d barcode library complies exactly to GS-1 spec.

People really have no idea what the beneficiary reference is actually for when sending a payment. Clue, we know who we are and donโ€™t need to be told! What we need to know is which account reference/number on our system you are paying us for! :-)

Something here ain't normal.

Ha, nice one @Apple , selection an image with a QR allows you to link to QR now. Randall (@xkcd) is thwarted!

In every sci-fi that has people hooked up to some sort of suspended animation / artificial reality system, it is impossible to โ€œun plugโ€ people without risking killing them. Future technologists please donโ€™t have this stupid flaw. (Star Trek Voyager this time).
