    Figuring out my Raspberry Pi 4. I'm admittedly a little in the woods, but the guides I've found for the stuff I wanna do are all written very approachable.

    • If I understand it correctly, I can install a firmware update and not need the noisy-ass fan I've got (may not be noisy for some, but our apartment's small and quiet enough for it to be noticeable).
    • I'm gonna try and setup Mycroft which I learned about from here! I wanna kick Alexa out of our place.
    • I had Pi-Hole running before, but I'm not sure if I can have both that and Mycroft going at the same time? I'll find out.

    Aside from that, we're getting a futon, getting rid of our old couch, and assembling a couple Ikea stuffs together.

      Good luck. I’m planning to do something similar (still in the super early planning stages, either mycroft or some recently announced stack that I can’t remember the name of). The funny thing is that it’s not even so much because of privacy issues, but because of how utterly dumb and unconfigurable Alexa is. Having a bunch of pre-set commands with full control would give me a far superior experience. I really need to order a pi 4 (my pi3 is running home assistant which is what alexa connects to anyway) and a microphone array to start experimenting.

    It's my birthday this weekend! Probably going out with some friends and in general just hanging out. Gonna try to get a little work done.

    I'll be working on completing the first section of my online Discrete Structures class. It's mostly just basic stuff like truth tables and conditional operators right now, which I've already learned about from taking Java courses, but it's a bit tedious to refresh myself on these concepts in such depth. On the bright side, I don't feel like I'm not understanding any of it, so having the foundations of this course be something I already comprehend for the most part is definitely a good start.

    I'd also like 2020 to be the year where I climb Mount SICP, but by the time I get to the exercises each night my eyes are glazing over. Maybe I can make some headway on that this weekend.

    Saturday, I'm going to tutor my sister on (or "in"?) math and then watch UFC 246 with her, my brother-in-law, and a few others.

    Sunday...who knows? 🤷

    Today, Friday, a bar crawl. I imagine I'll see some familiar faces and engage in some shenanigans.
