Anyone here live in Ireland? There have been a lot more days lately where my wife and I have semi-seriously considered moving the family somewhere in the EU and Ireland always seems like a nice choice.

Mastodon for iOS bug 

I guess I should note that the computer is the wrong image.

Mastodon for iOS bug 

This is the bug that I think should get fixed right away, but I’m not sure what’s going on. Is there a cache key that’s not distinct enough, so it grabs the wrong thing out of the cache? You’d think it would always be the wrong picture, instead of flip flopping. Maybe that’s a second bug? We’re grabbing out of the cache with a different key, depending on the code path?

@bigzaphod Do you have a build server? Do you have a QA person?

I turn on my PC.

The local wildlife are immediately sterilised by the excessive output from my four exposed nuclear reactors running at a critically risky heat output.

The sound of 10,000 cooling fans deafens the city’s morning traffic as my warehouse of 500 parallel-chained AMD Razer Threadrippers bursts into life, forming the equivalent processing power of 2015 in one room.

Nearby, my cluster of Nvidia 5090 Test Cards begins to warp the local time continuum as they calculate answers man was never meant to know.

Very gently, I open Microsoft Teams.

Instantly, the already deafening noise of fans increases to a murderous wail as they try to keep my equipment at operating temperatures. A nuclear reactors’ fusion catches up with its cooling and explodes destroying the lives of millions. The floor begins to melt away as my processors over clocked ten-fold reach critical mass and descend directly into hell. My Nvidia cluster collapses into a singularity and begins to devour the planet.

Quickly now, I open a text chat, it’s a bit laggy.

The sheer struggle of loading some text destroys the remaining systems. Me and my equipment are deleted from reality by an unknown overseer.

Extreme vanity 

Ten years ago I ported an app called Reflector from the Mac to Windows. This is the promo video. I’m the guy in the blue shirt.

Hey, if you like visual stimming, I super recommend the fluid simulation by Pavel Dobryakov! It’s available online as WebGL or as apps for android and iOS. It’s super customisable and really satisfying, and supports full multitouch. :boost_ok:

I ordered a GB Operator, which came yesterday. I have to somehow get my work done while it sits here next to me. In 2011, I ported a Gameboy emulator that I found online to the iPhone. I wonder if I can connect to this device and use a physical cartridge. I guess we’ll never know (until after work)!

Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.

There are things that don’t exist, but should. Imagine the NEC always-on displays you typically see showing a menu at a fast food restaurant, but in portrait mode, with ten capacitive touch points. Something very close to this: I like that this has a raspberry pi compute module slot, but it also needs Power over Ethernet support. Then, you just need an OS for it.

Who lives in Vermont and can tell me a good place to live? I’m a trans disabled author of m/m romance. He’s a queer director with S&P. We’re looking for a forever home with our 7 cats and husky. We’re Gen X progressives trying to escape Texas. I need gender affirming care and a good vet. Where would be a good place for us?

hardware supply gripes 

I just backed the Turing Pi 2 on Kickstarter, and went looking for some RPi CM4 modules to put in it... and the 8 GB CM4's I'd prefer can be delivered in 6-7 months time! Crazy.

Anyone know any EU vendors that might have RPi CM4's in stock?

Alternatively running a Nvidia Jetson Xavier NX in one of the 4 slots could be nice, see what that is all about.

The planned Turing Pi RK1 module they claim to be working on looks fantastic, but I don't see them materialize before next summer.
