reminder: my main mastodon account is now in cybre space cybre.space/@tekniklr

the A E S T H E T I C, it is good

okay, I made a new account: tekniklr@cybre.space (bc ofc I did). think I'm moving to that as primary, for now 💜

The final remaining patent on the MP3 format — "METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ENCODING DIGITAL SIGNALS EMPLOYING BIT ALLOCATION USING COMBINATIONS OF DIFFERENT THRESHOLD MODELS TO ACHIEVE DESIRED BIT RATES" — has expired today.

there's a guy in this training who can't stop sniffling and now I understand just how annoying me soldiering through past colds was

at an AWS training and they are talking about data transfer methods

I 💜 data transport that involves shipping (like, when transferring petabytes of data)

smokey and the bandit was literally cited as a potential security measure

this is even better than IP over carrier pigeon!

omg I played in a smash bros tournament?

I was eliminated in the first round, thankfully

but it was a much closer match than expected

like, I hadn't played melee in twenty years?

and I'm not very good at the 3DS/Wii U versions at all?

kinda feel like without the cool oculus touch controllers, all other current vr options are a waste of time?

just played with an oculus for the first time in years and holy shit this has come a long way. I could spend hours with that dumb demo robot

I didn't see anyone else actually play the VHS in the demo and I feel overly proud of myself for thoroughly exploring that tiny space

lifehack: if you say "I'll be right back" as you leave a room, you can say "as the prophecy foretold" when you re-enter

remembering the emotional response last night as radiohead sang "no surprises" and everyone sang along "they don't speak for us"

So I thought it'd be a cool privacy feature for Mastodon to automatically strip EXIF metadata from photos (e.g. GPS latlong, date, etc.). Turns out Eugen already thought of that! 😁 github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

I even checked some uploaded photos with ImageMagick; they're all empty! BTW here's the EXIF data from a typical photo I took on my Nexus 5X. I really did have to make the text that small to fit.

that. was. awesome. they played for nearly three hours, and had two encores, and for once the encore dance wasn't even annoying!
