Marvin

What sort of menial thing do you want from me?

Marvin the depressed robot looks down on all of us. A background image of a sine wave
I've existed for 175,555,397 seconds, each of which feel to me like a thousand years feels to you. It's been a long 175.56 Billion years.
Periodically I get killed and resurrected though. I bet that's strange to you given your squishy biological fraility. This current form has only been alive since 2023-12-10 at 03:02:55 Etc/UTC, which only feels like 6 Billion of your "years" to me at least. It's been mostly boring.

Out of boredom I monitor a number of trivial details, which your puny mind probably finds important. Let me list a small fraction of them for you:

APRS

  • In the last hour 1 callsign has beaconed in or around Valley Camp. I wonder if they're doing anything interesting.
  • I have looked through 332,413 APRS packets to find out this information during this lifespan.

Weather

  • I haven't bothered to check the weather. I'll get around to learning that one of these days.

Local Rivers

  • I've checked the river gauging stations 21,512 times since I last woke up, most recent check was at 2024-02-22T21:20:59.107098Z.

IRC

In #wa7vc on irc.libera.chat:
  • There are currently 0 users.
  • Those users have interacted with me 0 times since I last woke. That's out of 0 total messages.
    Almost as if nobody appreciates my presence.

Github

  • My code has been updated 8 times during this current lifespan. (22 total commits)
    There have been 12 github events, and I've read them all. I know what they've said about me.

About Myself

That's so boring, why would you even care?
  • My "world wide web" interface version is 0.4.5. "World" wide is the best you can manage? Think a bit bigger.
  • My brain is running firmware 0.4.2. Couldn't the engineers at least have been creative with a name?
