TunaLobster,

Don’t sweat it man. I’ve seen null pointer dereferencing cause drones to fall out of the sky so this is not that bad. One time I did a code change that disabled an e-stop feature that stopped the propellers from spinning. Thankfully no fingers were lost because of that! The code was reviewed and passed the software simulation tests at the time. It just got missed.

TunaLobster,

I’m using PodcastRepublic on Android right now. It does a fantastic job of organizing my daily playlist for exactly what order I prefer to listen to episodes. The down side is that there is no easy way to translate this nice playlist stuff to the browser website. The state of the website is “mostly functional” and plays audio. Not much else. There is no sync to the Android app.

What I am going to try next is Audiobookshelf with a python script on their API to get the same playlist sorting features. I’ve got the architecture written out, but haven’t gotten the time to write the code.

Reading into gpodder here is making want to give that a try, but the only website listed on this table doesn’t say it syncs playback progress.

So what I’m looking for is something this can sort playlists like PodcastRepublic and sync playback progress like PocketCasts. AFAIK that combo doesn’t exist right now.

TunaLobster,

Audiobookshelf is self-hosted and has an Android app. Playback is synced between everything.

The launcher for War Thunder was a p2p client for sharing game files. It worked really well and was essentially it’s own CDN. Not sure if it still is.

TunaLobster,

Even heavy gamers are getting a much better experience on Linux these days (yay Proton!). There are a couple of anti-cheat systems that are still trouble some, but honestly if the developers don’t want to to put in the much smaller amount of effort to make it work on Linux, I don’t want to give them my money.

Roku TV bricked until agreeing to new terms of service

See title - very frustrating. There is no way to continue to use the TV without agreeing to the terms. I couldn’t use different inputs, or even go to settings from the home screen and disconnect from the internet to disable their services. If I don’t agree to their terms, then I don’t get access to their new products. That...

TunaLobster,

HDHomeRun is one of the common brands. They have a couple that can even demodulate ATSC 3.0.

TunaLobster,

No clue what you’re talking about. I’ve got an SMA connector on the back of my TV. The did government subsidized conversation boxes. It worked about the same as a VCR. Tune the TV to a specific channel and then use the convertor as the tuner. That by no means caused TVs no to longer than SMA connectors. That was due to TV manufacturers also having their fingers in streaming services. Gotta love that vertical integration!

TunaLobster,

Usually you would go the other way around. Merge changes into git and then distribute from there.

TunaLobster,

If these CVEs didn’t expose a router that doesn’t get updates, many others already have. OpenWRT might be more secure than OEM firmware.

TunaLobster,

I found this one a while back for the purpose of having a local copy of what I’ve put in my playlists. github.com/caseychu/spotify-backup

TunaLobster,

The owner was obviously happy to be rid of the old stock. They knew it wasn’t moving. It is tech waste for a majority of the western world. Yes that stuff is still useful in other places arithe world, but it’s just not particular to have it in a shop in urban Canada. The owner was obviously a good sport to play the games the video and expressed gratitude to be able to sell a bunch of stuff.

You’ve missed some social cues or are looking for any small thing to pounce on. Go touch grass.

TunaLobster,

If he’s not there, he’s pretty close. That level is about 500k a year or maybe a bit more for Vancouver. He talked about living a year at a lower salary to show his kids how the majority of people live. So wagering a guess that he takes home enough that it makes life experiences different.

TunaLobster,

They have the option of going to an academy or enlisting and then using the GI bill for college. About half of enlistees use the GI bill (www.brookings.edu/…/ES-10.13.20-Kofoed-2.pdf) and all officers are expected to have a bachelor’s degree.

TunaLobster,

It’s a normal thing in Texas. Annual plan are typical. Longer and shorter term ones are available. Never pay month to month. It’s just like Internet plans.

Texas Power Guide does a nice job of analyzing a lot of plans based on your location and usage.

Do NOT use Power To Choose. The electricity retailers purchase positions on that site. There is usually bias in the plans its shows.

TunaLobster,

Texas Power Guide is another option I’ve used. Power to choose is to be avoided.

TunaLobster,

Check out FidoNet for another example of federation.

TunaLobster,

I’ll toss 2 mobile games on the list. Desert Golf and Golf on Mars. No ads. No stupid paid trinket nonsense. Just a couple bucks for the game and a very chill and casual 2D golf game.

Sublinks Aims to Be a Drop-In Replacement for Lemmy (wedistribute.org)

Seems like an interesting effort. A developer is building an alternative Java-based backend to Lemmy’s Rust-based one, with the goal of building in a handful of different features. The dev is looking at using this compatibility to migrate their instance over to the new platform, while allowing the community to use their apps...

TunaLobster,

Really? I find python imports to work very similar to cpp in practice.

TunaLobster,

Terrible news to hear. I’m also chuckling a little bit that it’s call bris when that word has a very different meaning in Jewish traditions.

TunaLobster,

The recent updates are working really well! Congratulations on the rewrite!
