Finally a random mini-vacation day off tomorrow to enjoy myself a couple of hours from here during the day and then going to an event in the evening 😌

New rPi I bet could be a solid retro game emulation machine. The old ones could too but the new performance will make it even better.

Might just go ahead and get one.

New rPi seems awesome. Super glad to see huge performance increase plus bottlenecks on I/O and network being removed

Surprise, surprise, Raspberry Pi 4 has been launched!

Faster CPU, dual 4k HDMI support, up to 4GB RAM, USB type C, USB3 and (finally!) no more bottlenecking the ethernet port over USB2: full gigabit speeds!

Also: same old price 😍

Trying to watch VODs on Twitch and they will randomly stop playing and reset back to zero as if I restarted it from the beginning.

Apparently it's their goddamn annoying ad tech and their videos are LOADED with ads, and when it can't load one (thanks probably to my pi-hole or other ad-blocking tools) it thinks the video is over.

JFC. If you have even a single subscription on Twitch, it should remove all ads, period.

I'm about to stop watching VODs altogether.

There are some drivers that won't learn how to drive until a guardrail teaches them. Sucks that I have to share the road with them, though.

Scripting is fun as hell. Even VBScript in an HTA to automate some Windows stuff 😎

Blog post on everything Tusky and rickrolling, a one-stop-shop of all of my rebuttals against the common arguments I've seen over the past week or so.

speaking of bazan i can't WAIT to see a screening of his documentary next week where he'll be present for a Q&A

he's one of my favorite musicians (and people) and i'm very excited to go. i don't go out much as it is

i'm mostly a metalhead but also love singer/songwriter stuff like david bazan, now now, and synthy stuff like chvrches and the midnight. if i'm in the mood i like some rap too. pop and country tend to be the most seldom-listened for me

have to say i'm really digging Khalid lately ever since a friend introduced me to his music:

can we as a society finally acknowledge that touch screens are worse than physical buttons in most applications

I may or may not have purchased the new A12 iPad Mini because reasons

I'm consistently glad that I filter out all RTs / cross-posts from Twitter. I came here as a refuge from that nightmare.

The only twitter I like to see on Mastodon is the account @twitter

1994: \o/ only 4 weeks & my first linux worked!!
