So I miss an early meeting yesterday, because I completely space it and don't set alarms (the meeting was an hour before my day even starts). Don't get "in trouble" necessarily, but get some people hounding me and blowing up my DMs about it.

Another meeting is set the next day an hour earlier, so I set alarms and make sure I get up on time. Join the meeting, only to be told I'm not needed in this one.

My custom #theme for #OnionOs on my #MiyooMiniPlus is complete! Of course, following #Arcticons style!

@ConLuegering fresh boot takes about 15 seconds.

You can turn off while playing, a second to save state, next time you turn it on it will resume where you left off. 18 seconds at most.

Picking a game and starting it from the device already on is maybe two seconds for the game to start, maybe 4 seconds on PS1. In both cases the game will resume where you left off last time.

You can switch between games in a second, it will resume where you left off. All of this is while running OnionOS btw

Jobs are funny.

Two years ago: we need you to help shape more "Jason's", use your leadership, etc.

Last Year: we don't want you focused on leading a team, need you focused on getting stuff done.

Now: We need you leading a team....

@hyde well at least the problem is the store and not that it went missing on shipping or something.

You can get it directly from Amazon if you maybe already have an account there but the price is a bit higher.

Personally I just logged in via Google, less hassle xD

If they already have all my data anyway...

To those starting out with their writing:

9 times out of 10, one of the biggest improvements you can make is gonna be better paragraphing. Let the text breathe a little!

Breaking your text up into smaller segments makes it easier to read and lets you have more control over the pacing.

@amin I've actually started doing this for a couple months I think, you may have noticed lol.

Even a single sentence sometimes, but it's nice.

So, well, I guess I wrote something, kind of inspired by a conversation that I was having with @joel I'm not really good at words or structuring text, but trying this thing out, and I kind of felt that I had something to say about it. In the end it ended up being kind of nothing, I don't know, don't expect something illuminating, just some philosophising about qualia I guess.

Something tells me I'm not selling this too well :p

I’ve been on the lookout for a portable emulator device with hardware buttons for a while, and on a whim I placed an order for a Miyoo Mini Plus. What I received turned out to be an entirely different brand and model (Anbernic RG35XX Plus) which was a bit disappointing, but it seems to work so far! So now I’m replaying Diablo 1 (PS1 version). I’ve replaced the stock SD cards which seems to be a regular point of failure, but we’ll see how long it lasts as the build quality is fairly poor..

joel,
@joel@fosstodon.org avatar

@lundstroem it's a bit of a shame when sellers just don't care that these devices are indeed different.

But at least it's not the worst device ever, Anbernic is pretty alright as well, just worse stock software and build quality

I’m having way too much fun with this Miyoo Mini+. Installed this morning which adds so many useful features. Nice theme switcher where I found a fave, which you can see in the video.

Also got hooked up with RetroAchievements, a website that creates and tracks achievements in these old . This was $70 well spent and I’m just getting started! (Literally… with the original Legend of Zelda)
