Okay, I'm several days behind in #adventofcode and I have a little time before I should get to bed, so let's start at day 7 and go backwards, shall we?

As usual, streaming at my #owncast server. Come hang out while I grumble at #RetroForth for a bit!

Wouldn't it be funny if Raid: Shadow Legends was actually an awesome game and Raycons were secretly fantastic sounding ear buds?

I know it's on Disney+, and fuck Disney, but if you get a chance, watch The Beatles documentary.

It's really something special to be able to watch a "real" documentary without an artificial narrative added by the film maker in order to add drama or guide the story to a certain way. It's just a chance to watch a thing that happened. No cut-aways with a narrator, or animated explainers. No guided interviews. It's great.

I just ran into a binary of Mastochist. I didn’t expect it to run or successfully interface with Mastodon. To my surprise, it did! So I’m sending this post from it just to say that.

I've been paying a hosting provider to run my internet radio station for years now, mostly because it was easy and I didn't want to deal with it myself. As a little side project palate cleanser I'm finally changing that and adding it to the list of things I'm hosting from my apartment. Going to start the playlists from scratch and see how it grows.

Most listened to music in the past week:

Covenant and Hybrid.

Sad that famous bsd-themed rap group "The Beastie Boys" split to form the NetBeastie, OpenBeastie and FreeBeastie boys

Good news everyone.

After what seems like an eternity of experimenting with video games to find one that's as good as Animal Crossing, I believe I've found it.

I'm proud to announce that the second greatest video game, next to Animal Crossing is:

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania

I'm Pro-Docker. I think it's a fantastic tool and I enjoy using it. But I'm seeing far too many pieces of software use it as a crutch by relying on it as a primary installation avenue.

If your software is so complex or difficult to install that you say "just use Docker" to get around it then there's a problem with your software.

Docker should be an option for how to run it, not a quick-fix for installation.

Nothing annoys me more than when you launch a streaming service app and it asks you to pick a profile when you only have one profile configured.

To me it means it's assumed everyone lives in a household full of multiple people, and the use case where somebody would live by themselves, or have account not shared, is so unlikely they won't even take the time to deal with it. It personally judges me for me for being alone.

When I worked at Philo I fought this hard, and won. They won't prompt you.

Stargate Atlantis 

Except the thumbnail looks like sports commentators.

Robert Picardo showed up. This is now just a Star Trek series.

on this, the day of Spotify wrapped, I carry a hopeful vision that if we were not dependent on ad-driven platforms, owned our own data, and paid artists directly we could build our own cool algorithmic tools to understand and explore our relationships with art and each other

what DS9 thought Alexander Siddig would look like 27 years later vs how he actually looks 27 years later

I'm ready with my Star Trek Omega Particle jokes for when the omega variant muates.

The news keeps saying I should be able to get a booster shot anywhere and everywhere. And maybe it's specific to San Francisco, but there's just no open availability to get a booster shot anywhere.

is anyone using #processing #p5 to play (and manipulate) #videos in RT? on Linux? what is your setup? which library works for you? is it using OpenGL? gstreamer? please let me know which versions work for you!

Just a man, a piano, and the esoteric practice of pairing poetic words with a sequence of musical tones.

makes it good, your boosts make it great. lol

I was outside at Death Guild getting some fresh air when some woman was turned away for not having been vaccinated. She went off yelling “You’re not goth! My dad was goth! Suck my titty! I’m Rick James, bitch! Fuck your money!”

And that made my night. Hope you all had a good cyber Monday.
