mindfulness 

uhh yea doc my mind *is* full how could you tell

replayed proteus last night and it was still extremely good

i wonder if "james from X**ll*" knows about the gdpr and that these cold-emails are illegal now, at least here in europe

(but, here's the secret: marketers don't care because it's not really enforced)

Show thread

complete with a big fat lie "You're receiving these emails because you've previously shown interest.."

and an unsubscribe link that I'm sure they won't use as a signal that this address is real and that there's a person on the other end or anything

Show thread

so i got my first spam email on that new address and, folks, of course it's some games marketing shit

i was going to suggest a wasm browser-within-a-browser here but big tech has "innovated" that one already

Show thread

webassembly is great and all but i'm guessing we are about 2 years away from big sites like youtube and twitch going full wasm blob as drm measure against parsing/scraping their html (to make third party tools impossible)

wipeout pulled off this incredible trick where 50% is just the music and the design and then they just had to make the other half

win10 usb boot gymnastics 

at this point i'm guessing this thing can't read whatever hybrid magic the win10 iso does for a partition table, but oldschool dos fat32 partitions might still work. BUT the win10 iso, of fucking course, contains a file called installl.wim that's 5GB, so too large for fat32.

turns out you can split that file into several smaller install.swm files (and there's a tool called wimlib that runs on linux):

win10 usb boot gymnastics 

so i've got this older laptop, ca 2015, of a friend of mine, and she wants me to reinstall windows 10

and this thing has uefi, and it tells me it supports booting via usb, so i dd the win10 iso, and the bios even recognizes the drive in the f12 boot menu, right

but then it won't boot from usb at all. so, what do?

how to watch a livestream without the bullshit 

bonus: you can record streams as well (while you're watching them) by adding -r FILENAME to the command
