I have finally pushed myself to start the Man in the High Castle and while the topic is heavy (definitely why I waited for so long), this is quickly becoming one of my favourite shows. A few days later, and i'm already in S4.

@Digitalyn One for the watch list it seems.
Thanks for suggesting Yellowjackets btw, it's great. 🙂

If you are on Windows and you want to control 2 PC's with a single mouse and keyboard, then you should check out Mouse Without Borders. It's a great piece of software that allows you to do just that without the need of any extra hardware.

@screwtape No, and that doesn't make sense either 😁

@screwtape If you spend some time playing with ChatGPT you pretty soon find out that it's a very advanced auto-suggest tool, and it doesn't have a clue what it's talking about, and tend to make stuff up. How that can be a good thing for business, I don't understand. I bet it's going to be great for lawyers, though. 😁

Last night I dreamed someone in the office was playing some awesome high speed super hectic breakcore on his laptop. Very Venetian Snares/Hitori Tori/Ruby My Dear style things, but something I never heard of. It's crazy your brain can just come up with completely awesome new music like that. Too bad you can't just record that somehow. 😁

@AnarchoCatgirlism Statistically speaking, this means you can lick most things. Good to know.

@n3wjack@mastodon.social avatar

@uint8_t @AnarchoCatgirlism you can lick all things at least once 😂

@n3wjack@mastodon.social avatar

@uint8_t @AnarchoCatgirlism Theoretically I guess, if you can get your hands on it. 😁
Same with any gases. I mean, can you lick a gas?

I'd love to switch my domain provider to a European or even German one. Problem is, that they charge more for .com, .net, .org domains, than in the US. Can anyone recommend a provider in the EU, that doesn't?
Note, that i need to be able to set DNS entries myself later.

@jrp What kind of prices do you have in the US?
Just tried GoDaddy for a .net domain and it's about the same as my own Belgian provider charges.

People who primarily interact with Git using its command line like the past 50 years of evolution in personal computers never happened fascinate me.

I do use it, but only for specialized use cases Fork or an IDE can’t handle.

@chucker Same. I mainly use the CLI for specific actions, and I have to look up how to do it every time.

Have you ever thought about blogging anonymously? I blog under my real name, but wonder if that could have held me back...

https://kevquirk.com/what-about-anonymous-blogging

n3wjack,
@n3wjack@mastodon.social avatar

@kev There are a few reasons why I post anonymously on my blog/site.
First, it was a habit of using a pseudonym when I was a teen and started using computers. I think it was influenced by the demo scene. When I registered my domain, I used the nickname I had been using for a while on the web.
Second, I don't like the idea that any wanker could just search my name, find my blog and then stalk your ass IRL because he doesn't like something you posted (something about Linux for example).

n3wjack,
@n3wjack@mastodon.social avatar

@kev Whois privacy is a must though imo, even if you are using your real name. You don't want them to just get your address that easily, right?
The same goes for future employers. When they search for my name, they will find a nice LinkedIn profile, but that's about it.
My domain registrar knows who I am, but that's OK. My life doesn't depend on it, and I kind of trust them. Besides, I have their address too. 😁

So I made the mistake of clicking a suggested video on YT about some freaky scuba diving accident.

@JenMsft I have a Windows feature request. When you use multiple keyboard layouts to switch between azerty and qwerty (for games) it would be great if the login screen would indicate what keyboard layout is active.
I often mistype my password because it's still in qwerty and OF COURSE my password has an A in it. 😁
It usually takes me a few tries before I remember that's the problem. 🤦‍♀️

So many tabs open with new music to listen to today. I may have bitten off more than I can chew, but I will try to get through all of it

@baymud I usually add them to my wishlist so I can check them out later, and buy them next month 😁

Charlie Kirk's claims that birth control "screws up female brains" and turns them into "angry, bitter young ladies" was not a one-off.

MAGA leaders, in a semi-coordinated fashion, are conditioning their followers to back birth control bans.

Say it with me folks, inheritance tax.

We are entering into "the great wealth transfer" where about $5.2 trillion (that's the one with more zeros than I can count) is about to pass from the, largely undeserving, super rich to their entirely undeserving heirs.

"Research by Forbes magazine found there were 15 billionaires aged 30 or under but that none had created their own wealth, instead benefitting from huge inheritances."

@FantasticalEconomics Wait, what? There's no such tax in the US?
