just discovered that cadillac still exists and their cars now look like a knockoff ugly chevrolet lmao. I want the old one with tail fins, that was 🔥

What is Jibri

Jibri provides services for recording or streaming a Jitsi Meet conference.

It works by launching a Chrome instance rendered in a virtual framebuffer and capturing and encoding the output with ffmpeg.

Not to mention I went to a show (because Lordi *does* put on a show, not just a concert!) in Madrid with one of my best friends also before Eurovision.

The audience getting their clothes splattered with blood (fake and washable, of course) during “The Chainsaw Buffet” was as fun and memorable as it sounds 😎️

Reminder that Lordi were a thing and I knew about them *before* they went and killed it in Eurovision 🤘️🇪🇺️

Well, turns out this The Arockalypse was released 15 years ago, so now that I stopped to think about that I feel a bit old.

This is still one of my favourite video clips ever:

Did you know Safari/GNOME Web/Midori/Odysseus/etc's WebInspector is a JavaScript webapp bundled with your browser? I think the same's true of Firefox & Chrome.

When you're building a UI platform it makes sense to use it! Show what it's capable of! (No, the debugging features it exposes are not available to normal webapps)

Alongside the same lines my "Amphiarao" webpage debugger is a serverside webapp exposing an HTML & standard JSON interface viewable in any web browser, including Rhapsode.

I also find memory leaks to be this bizarre "gray zone" of performance where nobody is really convinced it's worth spending time on. Because after all, you can just "buy more RAM" right? 🤷 Or just reboot it every so often.

The exception is mobile/embedded applications where memory comes at a huge premium. Especially on the client side, "just reboot it" is not really viable.

every cool-looking computer you're not familiar with will turn out to be yet another MSX

From my experience building on the technology I can confidently say: Voice assistants are the epitomy of Service as a Software Substitute (SaaSS)!

There's zero reason you need to offload voice recognition computation onto the cloud, it may not be trivial task but any modest consumer hardware is more than capable enough!

You don't need a supercomputer, and I don't think debugging false positives justifies keeping recordings of private communication (though I understand the temptation).

you might think we're slow, but think again! (1/3)

if we want to ship 25 laptops/wk, it means (simplified) with 2 people working on this 40h/wk each and one 20h/wk to cover all required skills to assemble, flash, test, package, export: each unit can get max 4h of attention so everything has to go smoothly for this to work out.

Wow, a one person effort to port to RISC-V is well underway and already booting to the desktop on Tinyemu. This is awesome: discuss.haiku-os.org/t/my-haik

the problem with doing things, is that doing things releases a chemical in your brain that makes you want to do things, which means if you don't do things you don't want to do things

Hot take: MIPS has the most orthogonal and approachable instruction set around.

At least of we were ave RISC-V out. I may need to reevaluate that statement once I start poking around.

No idea what I'll be doing with it. One possible project would be porting the JavaScriptCore JIT, but sounds too daunting. Something funnier could be some bare metal programming, because the learning curve should build okay given that I can write MIPS assembler already and RISC-V is a somewhat direct descendant...

Welp, I may have accidentally a RISC-V Nezha board.

Many Americans think that Hawai'ians lived in huts prior to colonization. The US actually de-industrialized Hawai'i. Before 1898, Hawai'i already had electricity, mass transit, railroads. Iolani palace had electric lights before the White House.

Before anybody comments: yes, my laptop is decent. I work on WebKit with it... yet O365 still feels sluggish.

Can we stop pretending that webapps are always better than native?

Show thread

And by the way, O365 is plain slow, no matter which browser I tried it with. Amusingly, it feels snappier using GNOME Web (which uses ) and is definitely unintended because one would expect Microsoft develops targeting Edge/Chromium nowadays. Or maybe their frontend developers are Mac users :thinkerguns:
