FOSS Media Playback Device

I want to create a minimal install for mpv playback through jellyfin-mpv-shim and macast. this is going to be a base for a FOSS media sink akin to a Chromecast. you attach it to your TV and it plays whatever you send it, like movies from your jellyfin server and youtube/vimeo/piped/etc videos. otherwise, there’s no interaction...

I used github pages, now I use codeberg pages. It’s nice I suggest you try it out (for static content like a blog, it’s great).

you think there are sectarian conflicts between like arabic numerals, babylonian base 12, i ching base 2, hindu numbers, roman numerals, etc?

“No it isn’t 2 towers, they are two 1’s so it’s actually 3 in base 2!!”

“Nuh-uh, it’s a signed bit so it’s negative 1”

“You fools! they are two I’s therefore it is II or 2!”

“11 two 1’s make 11!!1!”

or something like that i think

I’m sorry, why do you in particular have some keen insight or experience or knowledge which allows you to speak for these folks anymore than the other commenter?

EDIT: I should clarify, it would be very very easy to not do this; there, I did it now, there I didn’t do it again, I can keep this going. Can you specify why in-and-of-itself supporting an unambiguous apartheid regime and settler-colonial state engaged in documented genocide over decades is not, again, in-and-of-itself enough to not support or write on or for it??

Why does it appear what your saying is, the novelty and or uniqueness of the tragedy of the Holocaust is and for some short time will be, the awfullest and worst loss of human life in recent history? Where do you get the audacity to make a claim like that, do you realty think without asking others throughout the world you can even begin to make such a claim? It’s because you’re german and feel really bad and learned from your mistakes and of course are sorry and this gives you a keen insight over others who are not part of a culture or society where genocide is even on the table?

I for one cannot accept it prima facie. Why would my proximity and knowledge of awful terrible events be the demarcator between whether it is or is not the worst?? Why is the convenience of checks notes it happening within the lifetimes of my immediate ancestors a useful metric besides convenience?

It’s this disgusting platitudes and preposition of “having a keen insight” also called smugness or knowing better or speaking platitudes which foments the stage and discussion for such idealistic rhetoric, devoid of trivial empirical claims, which increases the preponderance of having your voice and others like it anywhere near the centre of the stage; where, what do ya know, it’s been for the last century-and-a-half.

Let others from cultures who have no genocide on their hands speak, you and your ilk have been tolerated and have said more than enough. You’re given an inch and take a mile.

thankfully if plastic is gone we wouldn’t be left with a majority of the hassle to deal with in the public sector, i.e. what another commenter called “externalized costs”

urshanabi,
@urshanabi@lemmygrad.ml avatar

After reading your comment and I looked through the sources cited. Besides the initial source (i.e. linked article) being from a place I never heard, and the ‘increase’ in cost of oil purchased $74 → $76 (which, if I understand correctly, is a minor increase and doesn’t seem to take inflation into account; without calculating or knowing my sense is that it’s not meaningful) what part is ‘fake news’? I’m trying to understand and I don’t really get it.

The link and info stated in the linked article which links to Foreign Policy is legitimate from what I can tell. I skimmed it, and it seems completely in order.

Universal Basic Income i’ll have to disagree with (not inherently, rather in nearly all proposed implementations), look into Negative Income Tax, which to my knowledge, was purported by Milton Friedman. A notable economist, known for Monetarism, and advising Reagan during his Reaganomics thing.

Yeah that would be a great idea. The piracy community on dbzer0 uses rentry.co, maybe that’s an option?

urshanabi,
@urshanabi@lemmygrad.ml avatar

Yeah, I like it quite a bit. I wanted to have 3D models of stuff I designed what could be interacted with and I think the capability to integrate existing libraries is there but it’s beyond my skill atm.

The blogging part is neat, I’m a big fan and the nature integration with R Shiny and R Shiny for Python is great.

Another term for what you are describing which is philosophically untenable is relativism or if you are too far gone possible solipsism.

urshanabi,
@urshanabi@lemmygrad.ml avatar

Fair enough, apologies for the vagueness.

I was referring to the first two sentences of your third paragraph. Relativism would look like a kind of correspondence theory of truth which is dependent on where you are geographically and who you interact with socially. Rather than something being true because it corresponds or appears (or is convenient I suppose) to be true as it relates to material phenomena; what is taken as or considered to be true is wholly dependent on what a group one is part of might think. This is relativism as it is 1. not contingent on the natural world, as in the empirical world, so basically stuff we get when we interact with our senses. It’s a bit problematic because one can believe whatever one wishes, this is clearly not a material outlook and can be presumed to bring erroneous thinking or erroneous conclusions somewhere along the line. Any kinds of fantastical thinking can enter the picture, it’s not problematic in itself, but you’ll see most philosophers shy away from it because there are all sorts of problems that come up. Part of the problem people have with postmodernist philosophy is related to this, I’ll leave the explanation out for now, though I recognize it is a lofty claim.

For 2. solipsism is more or less believing that you are the authority, you can’t be certain others really exist or are equivalent in their capacity as a conscious being as you are. People tend to say, “I can only really know that I exist” and point at Descartes and his maxim Cogito ergo sum, I think therefore I am which I think is a weird perversion. At any rate, if one takes what one feels or believes or wants to be true, to be true, and solely holds their conception as the only one which matters insofar as it lines up with what they believe, there are similar erroneous conclusions which can arise.

The link then between 1. and 2. is everything in the world is interpreted in a highly perspectival way in a way which must relate to you. One places themselves at the centre of the universe, thinks their thoughts are actually the way the world works as opposed to convenient heuristics or works-in-progress. An intrasocial network of information, i.e. one’s friends or group, can be the basis for such relativistic thinking, to the exclusion of others which is sorta where you see the tribalism part as well.

Hope some of that made sense, let me know if it didn’t I’m a bit drowsy from my night medicine, I tried my best to be coherent. Maybe other comrades can chime in and correct me wherever I may have said something wrong or unclear.

I sometimes ask what has been keeping them busy, usually like that, I find it doesn’t work. What sort of phrasing do you use? Or is what I asking like really different from what you are referring to?

I thought this was that acronym thing from I think always sunny in philidelphia? About like trying to uh pickup girls or something dumb like that.

Sick, what synthesizer? I got a midi keyboard and use Reaper, what’s good about Reason? Also if you do wood stuff, do you do it by hands with a saw and chisel or with machines?

Any examples of stuff that felt awkward at first and then was less awkward as time went on?

Crucially, the ventures make US profits.

Maybe to reframe it, it’s like job security?

Salvador Dali was alleged to have beat his wife if I remember correctly. I don’t remember what the details were, I think there was abuse there as well.

I always thought Deepin Desktop looked close enough like Windows 10 or 11 that some people might not notice, may be worth trying.

Generally instead of starting off with all your eggs in one basket, it might be worth running say a different distro every week and recording the experiences patrons have and what the people who are doing IT support have. This kind of approach is scientific in nature and gives you relevant data (though only a small amount) for your current environment. It’s also small scale and doesn’t require huge start up cost to begin.

Wish you the best!
