It bothers me when I see people whinging about people who "follow too many accounts" on microblogging platforms. Particularly on fedi.

Like,maybe people use social media differently from the way you do, yeah? Fedi is all about curating your own experience, and maybe some people want a different experience from yours.

can't decide if I should try and get a couple more hours or sleep or just stay up

Well, nice-ish. I did have to point it at the alsa surround51 pseudo-device manually

Looks like pipewire plays nice with the E-MU 1616m. Running with a pretty basic configuration for now

Currently soaking in the bath and vibing to infinitethird's vod from earlier today twitch.tv/infinitethird/v/1273

climate, webdev, rant, looking for something else 

I hate my web developer job. No time for unit testing, no time for documentation, no time for creativity or nice algorithms.
Just use whatever trendy JS {front,back}end framework, ship high bandwidth, heavy, soulless sites in no time.
The mere consciousness of it from my colleagues are jokes between two crypto bs talks. The climate catastrophes ahead are literally a joke to them.
I hate that I contribute to this and I want out.

Does anyone here have experience going from this kind of job to a more engineering-focused, ethical one? Tips? Interesting reads? I'd love to hear about it!

Boosts are appreciated!

"This release includes more than 400 gigabytes of data published by Unicorn Riot. Ostensibly private, unedited videos and direct messages reveal a campaign to organize acts of racial hatred while indoctrinating teenagers into national socialism (Nazism). The information stands as a chilling reminder that fascist organizing thrives in secrecy and obscurity."

when working/studying you prefer... :boost_ok:

background noise might be like rain, sound of people in a cafe, in my case train videos, and similar.

"music, no lyrics" is basically instrumental but I didn't say that for clarity's sake, to not exclude acapella or digitally produced music.

"music, with lyrics" may mean lyrics in a language you can understand, but you can decide for yourself if the distinction matters. for me, if it's a language idk, it doesn't distract me as much as otherwise

This stuff is magical. I've started using it instead of table salt. It tastes better on most dishes and is better for my blood pressure.

> For the PinePhone (original edition) the built-in boot order of the Allwinner A64 SoC just happened to be SD first, then eMMC

as i understand it, this is pretty much the standard for Allwinner CPUs, possibly for exactly that reason (if i had to guess, some Allwinner dev found bricking their dev boards got old *very* quickly & just snuck the change in)

is-spi-on-pine64-devices-used-

Did you notice that rather than on PC where you download a generic image which you can just live boot from USB, on ARM every distro needs to support every device individually? It's not just lacking mainline Linux support, it's also lacking a generic way to boot these devices like x86 has. #SPIflash can solve this perfectly by implementing UEFI on a dedicated chip but current new @PINE64 devices are lacking this. Let's get loud to make them add this again in new devices!

The gist of the video is this: airlines don't make money by selling plane tickets and flying people around; they make money by getting people into their bonus programs and by hocking bonus points to adjacent industries such as car rental companies. They act as unchecked banks for those bonus points. Bonus points aren't taxed; all the "loopholes" where you could actually get more value out of the program than you put in have been closed; and points expire after a certain period of time or never get used, so it really is an ingenious grift

seeing a lot of new ppl here posting their art, which is great :blobcatlove: !

but most of those pictures don't have captions, which is not great :blobcatglaredrink:

captioned pictures are a big part of the culture here, much more than they are on twitter, so if you have the spoons it would be greatly appreciated if you would caption your pics

some of us, myself included, go so far as to avoid boosting posts that don't have captions, and I'd really like to boost the art I've seen today!

new jack version is broken on arch, guess I'll be moving to pipewire soon whether I like it or not
