Ordered from latest to earliest attempts. My personal favorite is the earliest one I made

Ran out of space again. It is using over 100GB now. I'm thinking that this might not be worth it

Update on this: it seems to be working now. It's still compiling but it has made it further than any attempt so far

I've been trying to build an unmaintained GSI for my phone for like 6 hours. A lot of the git repos seem to have disappeared since it was last updated, but none of them so far are necessary for my build. Unfortunately it's around 80GB of files. I had to extend my home partition twice. If it works it will be cool. If it doesn't... oh well

I might try to switch to matrix instead for calling/texting. I would love to use an open system, but it's always impossible to get other people to switch. Maybe...

LineageOS is perfect for me. I get to keep my phone for years after the manufacturer stops supporting it. I'm going to have trouble at the end of this year when my carrier shuts off their sms/call infra

After trying this out,
Pros:
- fast
- dark theme
- matches the main site for content

Cons:
- very high contrast at all areas of the ui, hard to parse importance
- typography needs work, hard to read
- displays squished on my device, seems like an easy fix

If you browse lemmy but hate how slow it is I would say this is a good alternative

Without leaks like this we will lose so much modern art. Our museums of the future will paint the incomplete picture of our time, just like museums now

These assets have a huge cultural significance and should've been archived in a digital library

People are talking about the Nintendo leak like it's some travesty to have draft assets released. They are so incredibly wrong!

Hardware problems 

My computer is old but I think it can last a few more years as my primary desktop despite its issues. Using the old AM3+ socket still seems to be fine. The FX-8350 in it is surprisingly fast. Using DDR3 is frustrating but not a deal breaker. The lack of an m2 slot on the mobo is annoying, but with SATA SSDs becoming cheaper it shouldn't be a problem. I'm generally very patient so I hope this pays off and saves some money compared to replacing the computer

I plan on buying an AMD card to supplant it. Probably the Vega 56. I am also going to upgrade to 32GB memory from 16, as well as an SSD to go with my old 7200rpm drive

Hardware problems 

I have finally run into problems with my GPU reaching maximum vram usage. It's frustrating that Nvidia included the extra .5GB of slower vram on the GTX 970 rather than just market it as a 3GB card. The stuttering at maximum usage makes it unusable for large 3d renders
