I wish computers were as fast as people think they are.

fast food 

Some might say it's a bad omen when it takes me three tries to find a Taco Bell that's open, but I'm not one easily deterred by superstition and/or sound reasoning.

I turn on my PC.

The local wildlife are immediately sterilised by the excessive output from my four exposed nuclear reactors running at a critically risky heat output.

The sound of 10,000 cooling fans deafens the city’s morning traffic as my warehouse of 500 parallel-chained AMD Razer Threadrippers bursts into life, forming the equivalent processing power of 2015 in one room.

Nearby, my cluster of Nvidia 5090 Test Cards begins to warp the local time continuum as they calculate answers man was never meant to know.

Very gently, I open Microsoft Teams.

Instantly, the already deafening noise of fans increases to a murderous wail as they try to keep my equipment at operating temperatures. A nuclear reactors’ fusion catches up with its cooling and explodes destroying the lives of millions. The floor begins to melt away as my processors over clocked ten-fold reach critical mass and descend directly into hell. My Nvidia cluster collapses into a singularity and begins to devour the planet.

Quickly now, I open a text chat, it’s a bit laggy.

The sheer struggle of loading some text destroys the remaining systems. Me and my equipment are deleted from reality by an unknown overseer.

Humanity is not ready for instant messaging

Which direction is the smiley supposed to go :gatopensa:

I'm not talking to myself, I'm doing an entirely offline podcast

And always remember: The S in "IoT" stands for: Security

Email: "the world of crypto is waiting for you"

Me: "It can wait."

🎤 I am planning to make some videos testing various audio interfaces with Linux, focusing on "bedroom producers". 🎵

However - I need YOU to answer a few questions before I can begin my work.

Your input will help me choose devices to buy. Please take some time to research the options - there's a lot that you may have not heard about, that could present great value.

PS: Feel free to boost this toot :)

At least not without a process of:
1. Duplicating it to another directory
2. Renaming it
3. Moving it back to the original directory

It's the whole fox/chicken/corn boat scenario of file management :politecat:

So apparently in the Dropbox phone app, you can't duplicate a file and save it with a different name in the same directory :smugcat:

Phone: *specific bing noise*
Me: A communications notification! Human contact! Companionship!
Notification: "you got a text, it's your 2fa code"
Me: oh, right, yes that

Don't trust platforms that say "we won't"

Trust ones that say "we can't"

baby, i'll be yours until ipv6 is a real thing

I seem to have missed the invention, announcement, and subsequent mass proliferation of salt water pools.

Uh oh, they've formed a Bermuda Triangle o_O

Nextdoor emails, cw: antivaxers, some all caps, annnd... I don't even know 

"Hummingbirds sightings"

"The CDC, the WHO, and Fauci Are the Problem Here's a video, approx 6 minutes."

So yeah... I joined Nextdoor... and the emails I get from it are... something. CW: petty crimes and pet-adoption-related posts taken way out of context 

"Top post: Stolen coconuts"

"Top post: Mystery Holes in Yard"
[I'm guessing... ALIENS]

"Top post: Just left the house."

"Swamp cats"

"criminals are busy this month"

"Looking for someone to love us"

"Our Phantom is Back and Desperately Needs a Loving, Forever Home."
[or how to make pet adoption sound like a weird haunted house situation]

I just tried searching for a Funko Pop and Firefox crashed so I rest my case.
