«We cannot have a society in which, if two people wish to communicate, the only way that can happen is if it's financed by a third person who wishes to manipulate them.»

Updated my video player to use the history object to track video changes and the session object to track what you are watching as I don't want have a backend. Also updated the playlist to re-order itself around video changes. Little steps.

I have no intention of posting all of my sleep updates, but I ended up falling asleep at~ 10:30am and woke up at 1:30pm? Glad I have the day off. Just going to see how the day goes and hopefully get some earlier zzz.

My sleep schedule is completely broken at the moment. Woke up at 8:45pm. Despite having a lot of insight as to why this happens to me, the difficult part is the understanding that there is not a non-disruptive way to fix it.

climate collapse 

This video also does a nice job of outlining a number of cultural perceptions.

Making some time to revisit some climate collapse stuff today.

I also made some progress on the web player code as well. It now supports switching data between shows, and some smaller quality of life improvements. I have a short list of other things to work on, which I may try to tackle today.

I discovered yesterday that my transcodes for my media server were failing to copy the color data correctly, causing everything to become muted, so my video encoding/codec knowledge gained some forward. Downside is I want to rerun everything. :P

In other news, I have a first draft of a writeup about my media server that's high level, and the beginnings of a document on the technical parts, as I find reading about the nitty gritty of video encoder details to derail the general explanation of the project, but still good to know if you're attempting something akin to it!

Changes at work have really thrown my patterns for a loop. I hope I can find a new rhythm, even if it is more complex.

NZ folk: Is there a good history of your country that I could read? Ideally, I'd like something that covers what people would have been taught, but also a more honest accounting. (I'm curious how the average person's accounting of your history compares to less colonialist accounts - as most colonial education curriculums tend to gloss over the more difficult bits.)

Huh. Aside from taking much longer, the same command for ffmpeg running on my rPi produces a much bigger video file than the one produced on OSX.
