hey y'all remember when I encoded the hit film Hackers (1995) in 8M? and how it was entirely unrecognizable, low resolution, low framerate, and had no audio?

well, since then, Mastodon has upped its media limit to 40M

so, I present to you: Hackers (1995) in 40M, with sound, at 24FPS and full resolution! encoded with state-of-the-art tools and codecs for your viewing pleasure

So about a week ago I started micro-dosing with a CBD oil that has almost 0 THC in the hopes that it would alleviate some back pain caused by inflammation (posterior faucet syndrome).

The results have been amazing, I have used Motrin almost all my adult life for back pain and sometimes daily since it became a chronic issue in 2012. This works better/more reliably.

Neighbor: that’s a pretty nice office

Me: It’s a bit windy though 😄

Neighbor: 🙄🤦🏼‍♂️😂

Did a coding challenge last night, suggested time 30 min. Me? Spent 10 min thinking about the problem first and came up with a non obvious nlogn solution that took 30 min to implement. Does that count?
