@riles this is completely true. I have sensitive ears and this is really infuriating. This results in the viewer having to balance volume over the movie or show.

"oh action starts", cuts volume off by 1/3.
"oh people talking, I can't hear anything", bumps up to original volume

Repeat cycle throughout the movie or show...

I mean come on!

As a person who is hard of hearing, I fucking hate when TV shows/movies don't balance their goddamn audio. Like if I have to really crank it up to hear most of the show but then during action scenes it's ear shattering at that exact same volume, You Did A Bad Job at making your show accessible. What the fuck is the reasoning behind this decision. No I get it, you want to make the action POP, but you can do that without making it a fucking tense drag for hard of hearing people to watch your goddamn show

This brought to you by me checking out moon knight and nearly fucking scrambling for cover at the first gunshot cause it was so much louder compared to the rest of the show that it sounded like it was right outside my fucking apartment

It's time to burn Meta down. Close it, destroy it, burn it.

Workers of Meta, quit your job! If you don't want to, you should at least engage in sabotage, either actively or passively.

Ubuntu on Raspberry Pi is such bullshit. It doesn't work on any of the Dell monitors at work so I have to use a TV, all the documentation online tells you to change files or use tools that aren't even in the default installation, the Raspberry Pi Imager fails to set it up correctly...

I think it is time for #translucent tech to do a come back. Don't you think?

I hope that people moving to Codeberg have read their term of services / use. They should be aware that code removal could still happen as storage is one of the most expensive thing when hosting infrastructure.

People who really want to own their code, and have it safe from arbitrary removal, should host their own instance of Gitea or any other equivalent.

I would recommend Gitea as it's likely to run on even the smallest devices.

So you moved your project from Google Code to GitHub to Gitlab on a free tier?

How much more warnings do you need? Seriously? Host it yourself or lose it. These services are to 'back up' your data only and share your project. That's it.

Your code should be under your control, and even an underpowered machine is enough to run gitea, fossil, kallithea or mercurial. Yes, there are other solutions than git.

I know this, because that's what I do.

gameboy custom build 

just finished this custom DMG with an aftermarket IPS LCD, shell and buttons! I love how it came out but it was a surprisingly tough build. I accidentally zapped the original motherboard I was going to use (the DMG's design makes it too easy to send -30v straight to the CPU) and killed the first fancy LCD I tried to install (which the vendor kindly replaced). and THEN I discovered the speaker didn't work, so I had to reopen to diagnose. but it's all fixed now and works great!

WEB3 be like : let's make tons of money with revolutionary tech
Hackers : let's wait til those dummies have enough money, meanwhile we'll try to find a vulnerability to steal all their tokens when it gets big enough.
WEB3 folks : 😭😭

From Ursula K. Le Guin:

“For we each of us deserve everything, every luxury that was ever piled in the tombs of the dead kings, and we each of us deserve nothing, not a mouthful of bread in hunger. Have we not eaten while another starved? Will you punish us for that? Will you reward us for the virtue of starving while others ate? No man earns punishment, no man earns reward. Free your mind of the idea of deserving, the idea of earning, and you will begin to be able to think.”
