Words I didn't expect to say in a sentence today: "emergency archeology".

If like me you think it's bonkers that even with a SMETS2 smart meter you were going to have to buy another energy monitor to track your usage with anything other than a unreliable In Home Display, it is now possible to set up an integration with Home Assistant (thanks to an app that connects to The DCC on your behalf) budgetsmarthome.co.uk/2022/01/

I played BrewMaster - the home brewing simulator game. At no point in the tutorial was Starsan mentioned. Realism--

What the hell is my country doing to itself 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

@Edent whilst not an arcade exactly, The Four Thieves pub has a few coin op (converted for contactless) machines in their upstairs room.

Does it count as "quiet firing" if you've already handed in your notice?

Hey! I'm looking for a freelance android app developer.

This is one of those things that it's impossible to effectively search for.

It's a fairly small project. I could probably have it done in a few weeks myself, but who has the time these days?

@vfrmedia 🤞🏻 the Ofcom looks upon your variation favourably 😂. Been there too - ended up with a small power increase and extra planes and height which helped a lot in that regard.

Ad revenues across the board has dropped, even radio which is quite cheap. It's been a bit stronger if you have retail playout (so advertisers don't have to trust you on your estimated reach), but for a niche demographic like that ... that'd be a hard sell I feel...

@vfrmedia surely it won't have been the transmitter that was the biggest power draw :p Just the CDJs in their studio would be at least that of the tx, let along the Sonifex S2 (not that energy efficient from memory) and playout machine.

Under cover of the Queen's death, Liz Truss lifted the fracking ban two days ago. A swathe of fracking licences across the country is the result.

@aral @scy @dictvm Big Tech might use UX design in this way, but it's 100% not the core tennet of the discipline. There are lots of designers our there that value accessibility, freedom and informed choice - which they have judged improves the "user experience". This includes lots of products that have nothing to do with "people farming": their designers just want the people who use their product not feel miserable whilst doing so. Is that really so wrong?

I'm becoming increasingly aware that I managed to get an *extrodinarily good* deal on my lease in 2021. If I had to get a car today, I'd not even consider leasing it.

TFW it's cheaper to use excess milage on car lease contract than it is to get a new contract with re the right amount of mileage 😱

@CodingItWrong YT does have audio only mode on mobile, but they could at least have a thumbnail like Spotify's animated cover art thingies that they do.

@CodingItWrong yeah, this was also a thing for (broadcast and online) radio called RadioVis en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RadioVIS . At one point I made a PoC "transmitter" that was recieved by a RadioVis compatible DAB radio that showed animated Nyan cat whenever The Pips were being played on Radio 4.


@TheThirdMan some more democratic than others, but yeah... exactly 😱
