prediction scoring

Thu 14 December 2023

In May of 2022, I made a few predictions about US politics

Here’s the meat:

 Assuming that the opinion is issued substantially as-is, I will make some predictions about 2023.
 
 ‘Red’ states will pass laws restricting basic civil rights...  
 Corporations that rely on high-skill workers will not be able to hire them in those states.
    Those corporations will move out of the red states.

koreader is not perfect, but it is very good

Thu 08 June 2023

koreader is an open source ebook reader application originally designed to replace the firmware on Kobo E-Ink reading tablets, and then ported to run on Amazon Kindle, Android, PocketBook, and Remarkable devices. Under Android it runs as a normal application. It also runs as an application in Linux and (reportedly) in MacOS. It reads basically all non-DRM book formats. It is highly configurable and featureful, though not infinitely so.

If you have an OPDS-speaking book server, it can search and download from that. If you want to run a tiny sync server for keeping track of which page you are on across multiple koreaders, that’s pretty easy.

If it ran smoothly on MacOS and I could get it to work on my semi-antiquated Chromebook, it would be even closer to perfect. Sadly, it doesn’t – yet.
