This Week I Learned - 2016 Week 25

Last week post or the whole series.

Space random generator. (HN post) Interesting result of applying Procedural Generation to generate random 3D spaceship using Blender. The fun thing about procedural generation is that we never know the outcome of the generation and sometimes there are random surprises. Example of the generation is shown below.


I'm in the midst of building a GNU/Linux 3D workstation and based on the Blender's optimum system requirements and supported platforms. Interestingly, the XEON E5-2670 setup, while impressive, seems a bit overboard. Main issues will likely be the graphic card driver support for GNU/Linux.

Similar to Python, indentation in Makefile, if use incorrectly, can't cause  can cause command not found error or sometimes, wrong ifdep usage. While we're on Makefile, recursive Makefile is doable.

Three shirts, four pairs of trousers (via HN). Living with the bare essentials. Somehow, unknown to us, hoading has become a part of us. Sometimes "throwing" away all the unnecessary stuff helps to reset, reboot, and rewind our unhealthy relationship with our physical or digital stuff. Awareness is the key here, otherwise subconsciously we will tends to buy or get more stuff, especially if you have hobbies of collecting stuff, worst if it's an expensive hobbies. Declutter is a long lonely process as you're constantly fighting with yourself whether to keep or to let go of the stuff. First rule, if you're not using anything for a year, get rid of it, regardless your sentiments.

How to Skivvy Roll. The most efficient packing system when travelling.

Another homelab using AMD Athlon 5350 compare to this. Interestingly, the case used here was an 2U rack.
