Just went back to hiding all youtube comments. Turns out the people commenting on (what should be non-controversial) current affair videos make me more angry than I'd like to be

I've been wanting to post more but I really don't do much outside of work nowadays. I'm not quite sure what I want to do artistically either so bear with me while I figure that out.

I baked some bread and it's actually come out quite nice.

I usually share little of what I do because most of it is work related buuuuutttt......

Time for the occasional "this is what i've been working on" toot. this just released today and i'm really proud to have contributed.

The 4 stages of music making :

1 - This sounds unexpectedly nice.
2 - This is dope, I love it, everyone will love it, let’s record a 1 hour long track, it’s sheer awesomeness and I feel happy like I never did, I can’t stop headbanging oh wow.
3 - This is shit. I am shit. Everything is shit.
4 - This could be nice, but it’s too much effort to fix, let’s make a new track instead.

"I will not use Firefox anymore, I will use that other browser that focuses on bitcoin and ads."

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

"EARN IT" act. What a lame and pretentious name to start with.

My TL;DR:
US want to hold content providers legally accountable for the contents their users post, PLUS they want to take away end-to-end encryption to the big companies using it (e.g. whatsapp).

I find it deeply disturbing, especially in times like that.
I hope this will will bring people closer to federated and distributed/decentralized networks.
Which is a good thing on its own, btw.

So i discovered last night that i can't pause an octoprint job and then disconnect the printer and expect it to resume, time to spend more time printing today i guess.

On the bright side though, i do now know that what i made fits and works for what i want to do so that's nice
