Big Intro Post 

: Hello everyone!
I love . There are other things I love too, but I know anywhere I could possibly end up, I'll probably have a Thinkpad next to me. So computers are here to stay in my life (and possibly ruin it)

I'm also very much into but I post the stuff on another account. Maybe I'll post a few here later as well. (I'm building an account for a hypothetical character)

As for computers, I have this little list:
not to forget and Web 1.0.

Other topics to expect:
(if I find a cool thing, I'll share it and maybe summarize them on )

(not my mother tongue, needs work)

(obssessed with productivity)

?

I never had a good powerful computer in my life but retrogaming doesn't seem half bad so

This is an incomplete list, but I hope you have a rough idea. Thanks!

So I upgrade Firefox and I get a “Curated by Pocket” section in my previously-blank new tab view that also has sponsored content in it.

I cannot stress this enough:

Fuck you, @mozilla
And fuck you, Pocket.

Tiddlyblink + glitch is an easy way to get your tiddlywiki with bi-directional linking to the web. Hopefully this leads to many small digital gardens.

the virgin sine wave:
- claims to be pure
- used in boring tests
- is gentle on equipment
- "s-sorry my harmonic content is so weak"

the chad square wave:
- has harmonics to infinity
- can never be accurately reproduced
- compression hates him
- analog stages hate him

Are here any VFIO specialist?

I'm trying to setup GPU passthrough but radeon module keeps hijacking GPU. Can't turn it off because I have Rzyen 2400G (Vega apu) for basic output

I personally think too-little software support of legacy smart devices is something that OEM can help very little. They don't deserve the full blame on this particular subject.

As long as chip people insist on their outdated practices, software will be in a slump.

Governments should go after hardware for their greedy and monopolistic behavior.

"NSA warns that mobile device location services constantly compromise snoops and soldiers.

"It might be best not to ask how the NSA knows this and why it advises most mitigations don’t help."

If the official Lebanese Red Cross donation site (supportlrc.app/wire-transfers) is down for you, I’ve mirrored the critical information here:

lrc.small-web.org/

Will continue to add more information from the main site.

Lebanon had a poor economy before this, and their Lebanese pound is very low value right now, so they need donations in foreign currency

Donations to Lebanese Red Cross (via the app) are still good

If anyone is short a computer or money for one lemme know.

I've got a couple e-waste macs from the past decade or two if you are willing/able to put in some effort. Will probably need batteries and some fearlessness to install aftermarket batteries.

i guess google just threw the oldest LISP usenet archive in the trash and there's nothing we can do about it

good time to remember that electronic information is fleeting and entire communities of knowledge can be erased at the drop of a hat

Goodbye, Emacs. I'll come back when I'm better.

Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:
