I like that this article about using an android phone with a keyboard includes a video so you can see how much faster it is at launching an app than using an iPhone.
Mayor Pete resigns!
Oh, just discovered the next reboot of the reboot of the DC universe is set to include the authority, so there's something else for them to ruin.
Is there anything worth watching on HBO/max? Can't recall the last time I opened the app.
This is an early access game, but has a chance to be a really special one on #OpenBSD - a first-person card-based dungeon crawler called Deepest Chamber: Resurrection. From Balcony Softworks, the makers of Balrum.
I'd like to give a shoutout to the devs - I had mentioned to them on Xitter that if they added a `-nosteam` flag, we might be able to run it on OpenBSD.
A few weeks later, they got back to me - on Youtube because I have since deleted my Xitter account! They have added the flag and now I can run version 0.934 on OpenBSD!! #PlayOnBSD
@shadowfacts okay, wow. I thought for sure it'd be something like recursive walk of the entire filesystem per package or something. That's even more spectacular. Actually CPU limited.
@tromino this is amazing.
@shadowfacts please please please ktrace this.
@duponin this is why silencers are illegal. Violation of the first amendment.
@FenTiger this is the way.
@zev I was thinking actually about "def" and decided it's bad because it doesn't even tell us what's being defined.
But defun is just nonsense. Unless you're defining an un.
The three acceptable keywords to introduce a function (should your language need one) are "fn", "func", and "function". You may not use "fun". Unacceptable.
I know this only because I had to do it, but the install directions for e.g. lemmy include downloading and installing a statically linked imagemagick, which is vulnerable.
Has anybody assessed mastodon exposure to webp vuln? It transcodes the image using the bad library, no?
(Honk uses a go webp decoder. I'm guessing it might crash, but no worse if it gets the naughty image.)
Is Huffman coding the most dangerous topic taught in introductory computer science classes? So many flawed implementations, so many exploits.
@lanodan I used to do / for italics for my blog, but it got to be a real pain talking about file paths.
Oh, hells yeah, who's the top honk?
(Then it redirects to a page that's 404, of course.)
On this week's episode of Fedi Awesome or Awful, we discuss Mastodon 4.2.0's Hitler references. Unfortunate coincidence or intentional dog whistle? Listen in to find out what's happening and what action you need to take before it's too late.
Restaurant: scan our QR menu!

I am shocked that godot is not the drop in replacement for unity that the online people promised me.
@itzpaquet the first place would be the documentation, but if you have something specific in mind, I can give an example.
Is today the day of the great masto patching?
I think "illegal instruction" is swift's way of telling me to give it up.
I think about Rome and their aqueducts every time I have a glass of water.
If you know that killing lanfear only stuns her for a bit, wouldn't it make sense to toss the body in the fireplace or something to require a bit more regeneration?
The sleeper must awaken!
This was basically just a Gladiator reboot, right?
@galaxis I've noticed that increasing diversity in AP software means increasing diversity in opinions about how threads are connected.
The xenomorphs have invaded the beach.
@shadowfacts sign me up for your coöperative.
lolol, mastodon ui eats http: and https: from links in posts, so if you're trying to explain the difference, they look identical.
@knapjack I think superhero movies rely more on bizarro alien artifact clones hero to make opposite villain.
Star Trek series, ranked by their dependence on mirror universe episodes to keep things interesting.
@hannah I shockingly normal resolution I was led to believe was impossible.
The TV museum appears to be still online, not dead. So what happened? Did Sony retract their copyright claim?
The channel is still online, but there's no update to the story.
@miscbrains should use the previously preannounced live countdown feature to track time until disclosure of time of launch.
Preannouncing an emergency honk patch, but not specifying a time for the actual announcement to keep everybody on their toes.
When we say eternal vigilance is the price of freedom, well actually, we really do mean eternal.
TIL there are animals who use gunzip on zip files.
Not your saves, not your game.
A mod that upgrades Starfield graphics to be morrowind equivalent for all the complainers.
@piggo the breeders are in fact the post-nirvana femme-powered vanguard of grunge.
"What happened to the Breeders?"
Today in headlines that required a second interpretation.
2023 and java apologists still saying start up time doesn't matter.
Okay, giving up on this as a bust. I can't even type "<b>eat it" and have it appear. It doesn't escape the tag. It doesn't pass the tag. It simply eats the tag and outputs "eat it". I don't want to have to remember to use
code blocks every time I talk about an <html> tag.
I think part of the problem is I fundamentally misunderstood markdown syntax from the start, and so now I don't like the output of anything that does it correctly.
Consider a table:
| header one | header two |
| --- | --- |
| value 1 | value 2 |
some more text down here
I think the text below should be outside the table. But apparently there should be another table row with a single column of that text. What?
One of the principles of markdown was supposedly that it simply marks up plain text as a human would interpret it. I would never interpret that text to be part of the table.
As usual, the 90% that works works great, but the last 10% seems annoying.
Honk and friends have weird quirks where some things don't render correctly, but they also have fixes to make other cases render just the way I like.
@ryan I have a gen 6 hybrid. It's quite nice as an unobtrusive classic watch, but with some advanced features. It's also possible to customize the firmware, although I haven't gotten to that point.
I've given in to crowd wisdom and am once again evaluating legit markdown converters with grown up parsers.
