Change the Arduino compiler output folder to /dev/shm.

  1. Close the Arduino IDE. (Otherwise your edits will be overwritten)
  2. Open preferences.txt. (Found in the folder ~/.arduino15 on Linux Mint)
  3. Add a new value build.path that points to your preferred folder:
    build.path=/dev/shm/Arduino
  4. Save preferences.txt.
  5. Restart the IDE. Compiler output is now saved in the folder you just added.
    Remember that dev/shm is gone after a reboot!

Set Arduino IDE indent to 4 spaces.

Does that really need its own article on a vanity blog?

Of course, AS IT DOES NOT WORK FOR OVER 4 YEARS NOW.
A solution, I mean a very ugly band-aid is to change the Arduino IDE formatting config file by hand.
EVERY FUCKING TIME YOU UPGRADE YOUR IDE.

The Auto Format indentation is set in
{Arduino IDE installation folder}/lib/formatter.conf
Change the indent=spaces=2 entry to your liking.

And chill out man.

Federal reserve confirms: “There is no reason to be afraid of hyperinflation.”

So enjoy while the upcoming Weimar fuckfest runs its course.

What’s the usual pattern?

  1. Denial. People flocking together because group-think and greed.
    (Hyperinflation? You must be mad! Just look at the stock market! Or Bitcoin!) See the Bloomberg and NYT bullshit.
  2. Bargaining. The realization moment. The moment stuff hits the fan. Starting to happen now.
    People finding excuses for how they were FORCED into this (and why they need a bailout/preferential treatment) and/or why it all is not such a bad thing. The usual TINA stuff. See the link to the Bloomberg and NYT drivel.
    Extracurricular question: How come oil is still payed for in dollars?
  3. Anger. Difficult questions are gonna be asked. “Who the fuck let this happen?”
    Usually asked by the very same people letting it happen in the first place.
    For the definitive answer, we will have to wait to see how the social media circus is gonna spin this one. They will try to convince you it is some “foreign power” if you are the kind of social sucker that social brainwash networks prey on.
  4. Depression. The amplitude of this phase is directly proportional to the amount of previous over-monetization. Expect a visit from the nice people of the IMF to help you out of your troubles.

This time will be just like last time or the time before that.
Oh wait, there is a difference, this time will be bigger and better!

And no I am not linking to ZH but to Bloomberg and the NYT.

“It is not a currency. It is not a unit of account, it is not a means of payment, it is not a stable store of value. Secondly, it is not even an asset. There is no income. There is no use. There is no utility. The only thing is a speculative, self-fulfilling kind of rise, and that rise is driven totally by manipulation. — Roubini
