Hahaha I can't upgrade to Windows 11 because of the mandatory hardware requirement (TPM), why is Microsoft still trying to sway me to upgrade if I can't in the first place?

@Linux_Is_Best

I'm aware of Linux stuff, I run a bunch of servers. My main computer is a Mac for now.

My Windows PC is mainly for gaming, just because many old/new games can't multiplatform. :blobfoxcry:

My really olde MacBook Air that I left with my parents can't get OS upgrades anymore, even tho OSX was supposed to be the final one. But at least it got 10+ years of service. I wonder when I'll finally have to kill it :meowthinking:

Google refuses to allow Chrome to work on it, so I had to spend a few weekends teaching my parents to use Firefox.

@chikorita157 Oh, it's the 11-inch 2015 model, so it's almost 10 years. Looks like OpenCore Patcher could work, but I don't want to risk bricking my parents' at-home laptop.

Oh yeah, @neatchee

My suggestion for a breakfast in Kyoto. It's cheap, pretty good, and has lots of local specialties called obanzai おばんざい:

Oh noes, I wasn't able to suggest in time.

Japan's breakfasts are great.

  • McMuffin in Japan uses Pork, also Teriyaki McPork during non-breakfast hours
  • Matsuya 松屋 has cheap nice breakfast sets, but the regular sets are available all day too
  • Ochazuke (Green Tea Over Rice) お茶漬け is a great breakfast option if you can find one
  • Japanese BAKERIES are amazing
  • A traditional breakfast set (e.g. at a Ryokan) with grilled salmon is good if you like that kind of thing
  • Just be crazy and have breakfast ramen. Some shops open weird hours.

Velma got a season 2?

H-how?

I know they were baiting hate-watchers for season 1 and were banking on controversy, but do they really expect that to work a second time?

@anianimalsmoe@sakurajima.moe avatar

@dopey_kun
It was a 2-season package deal with Netflix, and it didn't get a 3rd season.

It's pretty rare for a show to be cancelled before the whole contract is done. Netflix already signed for it, and the controversy wasn't bad enough to pay to break the contract halfway.

Read yesterday that Malaysia's the leading country globally in terms of e-wallet/cashless transaction adoption with over 63% of Malaysians using them over cash. This does not surprise me honestly since I myself have not used cash (in Malaysia) 99% of the time for years now, and have not used any of my cards (physically) 90% of the time since 2 years ago when was made available here.

Almost everyone around me too are the same, preferring any of the available payment methods like and (which have been around for many years longer here than Apple Pay) when available, or fallback to (QR Pay) through any of the available apps like or just about any of the first-party apps like for users or for users.

Almost all shops from your local market and roadside stalls to restaurants or any stores in a shopping mall would at least support QR Pay should they not also have a bank card terminal (for NFC payments). Even my local laundromat and roadside car wash place accept QR Pay for a long while now, instead of how it was in the past constantly having to find change or stock some cash up in your wallet. This was my experience not just in KL/Klang Valley (the city), but also in other rural places throughout the peninsular.

Heck, should you need to, you don't even need your bank card to take out money from an ATM - you only need your phone to do that. My wallet's only filled with foreign money, otherwise I'd only have cash in my possession once~twice a year to give Angpow or Duit Raya. Some government/public facilities I've been to don't even accept cash anymore. I think people just hate having to withdraw cash so often or have change lying around. I suspect this thing is no different in most other countries, seeing the growing number of countries where Malaysia's DuitNow QR Pay is compatible with - its counterparts.

I suspect that Adyen (Netherlands) has skewed data, since it's more likely that China is the biggest cashless country, but foreign companies aren't allowed to operate financial services there.

@irfan
I think I'll go open the actual Adyen Index 2024 instead on relying on news outlet 'summaries'. Will report back with my findings.

@irfan
Ah, I'd take this one with a gigantic grain of salt. Censuswide is well known for doing what they're paid to do - skew data to make their customer look good.

I suspect they surveyed the easiest place, KL, instead of actually getting what they call "nationally representative sample sizes across countries".

These graphs look very very sus.

I've finally figured out the reason why they're pushing this new proprietary framework at work. Our CEO thinks that this new "magical" framework is gonna solve all the problems he's seeing in our projects.

The thing is, he's confusing issues with the developers (and the management) as issues with the current frameworks.

He thinks this new framework is gonna magically make all the bugs disappear and make project development twice as fast.

Honestly tho, you should probably be looking for a replacement job if this one doesn't seem to have at least mid term viability.

Obviously, using an LLM to choose a 'random number' is going to not actually generate a random or pseudorandom number. LLMs aren't actually able to run random number code, it'll just choose from a small subset of 'random' that it's read before.

Letting regular people use LLMs in an open ended way is leading to a lot of nonsense :neocat_facepalm:

In this week's , somewhere in the middle, Kyon and Sasa somehow answer a question about morning routines and shaving.

Humans are hairy, and remembering to shave is a bitch, so I bought a Philips Lumea and zapped the hell out of annoying hairs during lockdowns. I used to have to deal with a unibrow, excessive sideburns, and random facial hair, and now I just need to do a maintenance zap every few months. I also had ridiculously sweaty smelly armpits, so I zapped off my pit hairs to apply Certain Dri Prescription Strength Clinical Antiperspirant. Super worth it. :leafeonmoney:

Also, in they were discussing How To Train Your Dragon. In Japanese, it is called Hick and Dragon (ヒックとドラゴン).

And the dragon Toothless in Japanese is called Tooth (トゥース).

Interesting how Toothless in Japanese is a single 🦷 Tooth. Why? How did the translation end up like that?

I still can't move on from how magical this is. I can only imagine how surreal it must've been to experience this live - esp if you're a fan of this song in the first place, which I've just learned that it's an ending from .

@irfan I really enjoy how live music sounds very different from the studio version. The high energy is totally different.

I've barely done any work since Monday because of all of these back-to-back meetings. This isn't helping with our tight deadlines.

anianimalsmoe,
@anianimalsmoe@sakurajima.moe avatar

@dopey_kun
This happens all the time with bad managers.

Management: we can't meet the deadlines at this rate, let's add MORE meetings to pressure the code slaves to work harder

Ahhh. Only one more ending in Steins;Gate 0 left before I get to the true ending.

I can't imagine how this was adapted into anime. All these different endings seem to be so important in the story.

anianimalsmoe,

@dopey_kun Er. Honestly... it was not adapted very well. :meowcrying:

So I've been testing various drinks with my new Nitro machine with stuff other than normal teas

  • Milk. Holds bubbles very well. Apparently Starbucks experimented with this and it was well received vs regular froth
  • Chocolate milk. Yes.
  • Genmaicha, this is AMAZING. That it looks like 🍺 beer and somehow makes it better. My brain is weird
anianimalsmoe,
@anianimalsmoe@sakurajima.moe avatar

If anyone's tempted to try this, wish me luck on my plan for global tea cafe domination. The Nitro DS is a $500 machine that's definitely meant for cafe instead of home use.

Nitrogen fizzes out really quickly. Nitro Pepsi bombed so badly because the drink became a flat Pepsi within 10 minutes of opening the can. Milk seems to hold better, similarly stuff like Genmaicha is a surprise. But yeah, if the bubbles don't keep, then it'd be useless for takeout.

anianimalsmoe,
@anianimalsmoe@sakurajima.moe avatar

@irfan
Yep. It's super expensive, but I got one as part of my tea cafe plans. If I ever get there :leafeonmoney:

anianimalsmoe,
@anianimalsmoe@sakurajima.moe avatar

@oceaniceternity
Hrrm... I'll have to experiment with gum-based liquid thickeners, but they're pretty expensive :leafeonmoney:

Nitrogen is magic because it somehow makes the drink taste sweeter instead the acidic taste from carbonation too.

anianimalsmoe,
@anianimalsmoe@sakurajima.moe avatar

@oceaniceternity
The device supposedly collects N2 in the air and pumps it into a sealed bottle of drink. It's convenient as I wouldn't need to buy nitrogen cylinder refills.

anianimalsmoe,
@anianimalsmoe@sakurajima.moe avatar

@oceaniceternity Ah, someone did a teardown and it's a filter and air compressor, so it's not 78% N2, but it's not 100% either.
