Communicating with Minetest Server Using APIs
I have been playing Minetest for a while now, mostly in creative mode. Recently I wanted to control it programmatically. So I started looking for ways to do it. I found mineysocket mod, which gives remote access to Minetest server over a network/socket API. There are wrappers available for various languages, including Python
I'm off the wagon and back on the travel horse. The incredibly complicated 8-day March judicial trip for oral arguments has now been supplemented with 12 days in India in May.
Lecture at National Law School, hearing in Delhi High Court, first public meeting of the Servants of Knowledge, bunch of other stuff.
Been 3 years since in India last, likely to make 3 trips there this year. It is time to do this. Need to get serious again. Jai Gyan.
Weekly Notes 06/2023
We sold the blue. It was my first car. We got it in Mar/2006, almost 17 years. I loved this blue WagonR, not just me, but my entire family and friends loved blue. We have very fond memories of it. Family trips, drives with Anju, drives with friends for their weddings, shiting inside the town and outside, first few all-night drives, long solo drives. All happened with blue. And it never complained. I did maintain it well. I am sure wherever blue goes; it will bring happiness and some adventure. I will miss blue.
What are some interesting Android Auto apps?

ಕುವೆಂಪು, ರೈತನ ದೃಷ್ಟಿ
ಕರಿಯರದೊ ಬಿಳಿಯರದೊ ಯಾರದಾದರೆ ಏನು ಸಾಮ್ರಾಜ್ಯವಾವಗಂ ಸುಲಿಗೆ ರೈತರಿಗೆ ವಿಜಯನಗರವೊ ಮೊಗಲರಾಳ್ವಿಕೆಯೊ ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷರೊ ಎಲ್ಲರೂ ಜಿಗಣೆಗಳೆ ನನ್ನ ನೆತ್ತರಿಗೆ ಕತ್ತಿ ಪರದೇಶಿಯಾದರೆ ಮಾತ್ರ ನೋವೆ ನಮ್ಮವರೆ ಹದಹಾಕಿ ತಿವಿದರದು ಹೂವೆ?
Why I like kuvempu so much? One example is this poem.

I look forward to seeing the completed PR for Gnome Software with the Open Source software only filter. 😁
It will be a big improvement brought by Gnome 44 and going back to promoting all the great Free Software available instead of the often insecure and buggy closed source alternatives. 💪

The protesters are already having success. Keep up the pressure!
The specialized police unit that included at least some of the Memphis officers involved in the fatal beating of #TyreNichols was disbanded on Saturday as more protests took place in U.S. cities a day after harrowing video of the attack was released.
In a statement, the police department said it was permanently deactivating the SCORPION unit

What's the point of being a democracy if you can't watch a documentary?
Universities which are expected to make students read and watch everything are suspending students. For what?

Why this sudden ज्ञानोदय? Why now?
Remember these? Original Lytro! Lightfield cameras of the future! I grabbed a few off eBay some time ago and took a peek at the firmware. Found secret unlock that enables full remote control of all camera features. Full writeup here: https://github.com/ea/lytro_unlock
I’m devastated and outraged by the murder of Tyre Nichols. Another Black man brutally killed by police. This recurring nightmare has to end. Cameras and training aren’t enough to change law enforcement cultures that devalue certain lives, rooted in systemic racism and violence. #TyreNichols
