@goosey i suppose setting up QoS traffic prioritisation is out of the question?

Check out the (ridiculously huge and cheap) Indie bundle for Palestinian Aid. 1000 games for as little as USD $5, including one from yours truly. Lots of good ones in here. itch.io/b/902/indie-bundle-for

"Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.

Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it."

-- Brian W. Kernighan and P. J. Plauger (in The Elements of Programming Style)


@grumpysmiffy that sounds extremely frustrating, glad they're progressing it

@whtrbt not a seafaring specific response, but the answer to this question is always 'insulation' - if there's moisture you need to keep the air temperature above the dew point to avoid condensation. Perhaps it's possible to insulate the sleeping area?

@flip Finished the Three Body Problem a couple of weeks ago, (re)reading Peter F Hamilton's 'Salvation' series now

@tty my tapes are just for music. The original rationalisation was 'if i put music on cassettes then I'll have to get up, take a screen break and walk around every 60-90 minutes to change the music'.

@tty the main reason i use floppies and cassette tapes is for the tactility and sound, all that extra feedback that lets you know when things are in the right place, what kind of disk activity is happening etc

hopefully the rest of the cheaper components weren't worth faking? now I doubt every integrated circuit in the house

worst of all, a video came out a year later about this practice of relabeling chips as something more expensive, and it's *specifically* about these TMS VDPs youtube.com/watch?v=12u_hBkHB8

Took me over two years from buying a pair of these 80s era video display processor chips to being able to verify that actually I might not be too stupid to use them, because they're 100% fake (verified electrically against values from known working chips published online)

@paradroyd first present i bought myself when i got a part time job was a gp2x and the (fairly useless) docking station. Kept me entertained through so many commutes 😍

@grumpysmiffy it's always good to try different ways of working

A contact at a work client died, and their colleagues sent an email to inform me, which I appreciate. What I appreciate somewhat less is that every subsequent email they've sent me has been a reply to that original notification, with the morbid subject line intact. Starting a new email thread myself doesn't seem to help, I get an automated reply and then later a human response on the death thread

@goosey @apps the instance I'm on has a bookmarks export feature in the settings via the web interface

@cincodenada this sounds uncomfortably close to my personal definition of hell

@cinebox anyone that has had to manage a mail server and keep it patched, configured and not become an industrial scale spam forwarder will probably tell you that $100 sounds like a pretty good deal
