@piggo I wore a mechanical watch for a while, you really just get used to giving it a twist when you put it on in the morning.

Yeah, it usually loses a few seconds a day. Not a big deal, you set it on Sunday when the church bell gongs.

Auto watches are more interesting, but some of them don't allow manual winding, so you have to wear it a day with the wrong time until it charges up.

The High Council of Honk is currently meeting to devise contingency plans in the event that the Honknet Head of Alignment step down. Specific details of the plan will not be released until finalized, but everyone please rest assured that all alignments, from lawful good to chaotic evil, will be accounted for and we fully expect a seamless transition in the unlikely event this occurs.

original: brynet@bsd.network

After many years, and some serious debugging by both martijn@ and kettenis@, a longstanding issue with MSI interrupts with azalia(4), #OpenBSD's HD Audio driver, has been fixed!

This has plagued recent AMD machines for a long time, and the the workaround thfr@ and I added wasn't sufficient for newer AMD chipsets.


Context: https://marc.info/?t=171587268900008&r=1&w=2

kettenis@ modified src/sys/dev/pci/azalia.c: The INTSTS register is read-only, so the attempt to clear interrupts by writing to it doesn't actually work. Therefore we have to keep processing interrupts until all the bits corresponding to enabled interrupts are cleared. This makes MSIs actually work, also on the AMD implementations for which we currently disable MSIs.

Based on some digging by martijn@

ok ratchov@, martijn@, stsp@

A quick review of some laptop bags.

My primary laptop bag is this one from waterfield. The downsides are it was quite expensive (though I've had it for years now) and it's very heavy. It weighs more than my laptop, though it's well padded and durable. On the awesome side, I like the material design and textures.

The outside is leather with these red vinyl like accents. Inside, it's a combination of black felt and this textured gold material. It's just a really fun bag to carry around and use. You can technically fill it with stuff, like in his video, but then it feels like carrying around a giant stuff sausage.

I have another waterfield bag, a lightweight canvas one. It's not remarkable, except I don't get tired of carrying it. I'd really prefer it had at least one divider inside. It's basically a giant pocket on a strap.

But it works for carrying a pixel slate around without too much overhead. Just don't bang into anything.

I also have this canvas bag from banana republic of all places. This is my preferred second choice. It has a useful assortment of pockets and dividers, and a bit of padding without being too heavy. Slightly more functional than the waterfield, even, just less fun.

Finally, I've got this cheapo bag from amazon. More like a sleave on a strap. Took this to a few conferences where I'd be walking through a crowd and didn't want to whack people, so I wanted something small and cinchable.

Anyway, that's it. I really just needed to write something to test the new drag and drop editor in honk. Also, this should appear as an Article instead of a Note.

Rust is clearly superior to go based on the most obviously objective scientific measure: the number of blog posts about how strings work. Nobody writes blog posts about strings in go, pathetic, but a vast literature has been developed to explain the greatness of rust strings.

@trwnh yeah, so I think if we can get everyone to agree to relax sig checking to only date and digest, it would allow forwarding without the complication of ld sig. so, uh, good luck. :)

For something like Create, we could also use the published time in the activity, and if it looks old, reverify by fetching.

Heh, well, I just discovered why computers still have undelete.

I was testing something, and dragged a file to the desktop. Okay, test done, went to drag it back, but apparently the original was still there, and wouldn't overwrite it. Fine, just delete the copy on the desktop, except now poof, the original has disappeared as well. I thought I was looking at downloads, but it was the magic recent folder, so it didn't actually copy anything. It really did move the file from downloads to desktop, and then I subsequently deleted the one and only copy. Man, these computers are hard to understand.

Just found out that on macOS, desktop icons for images have hit boxes that are only the preview, not the surrounding alignment box. I had some very wide short screenshots, and selecting them required hitting the exact pixels, not the space in between the icon and the text label, which registered as a desktop click.

I don't think anyone ever has intended to click the desktop by sneaking the mouse cursor in between the icon and its label, but here we are. Peak UX.

TV: the city and the city

TV: the city and the city

Well, that was a quick watch. Gotta hand it to the BBC, they want to tell a story, they tell the story. No season long intro for slow moving world building that sets up for a possible story in season two.

But I think they underutilized the concept. As sci-fi, it was cool, but it was mostly crime drama, and as crime drama it was merely okay. The dead girl is secretly connected to the detective's painful past? Shocking!

I would have gone about one episode longer. I think a sort of pre episode, where the guy solves a regular murder on his side, but has to drive around the hazy other city he can't see, would have established setting, and then we can meet the newest victim. I felt the significance of the overlap/divide wasn't made clear.
