owo I got the two cute tvs connected to the laptop with HDMI. I still have one mini displayport left, so I guess this laptop can drive four displays (three external + built-in). (there is also a usb C port, but I think it's USB only.)

However because these are TVs and not monitors they are inferior. The edges of the view are off the screen and I can barely see the task bar. They identify as 1920x1080 when they are actually 1366x768. Text doesn't subpixel-smooth properly.

And they are not better than my laptop screen, the backlights are actually dimmer. The colors are more vivid though I guess, red is red, blue is blue and green is green, unlike on the laptop where red isn't quite red. But something else looks wrong, maybe the gamma and/or white balance or something (they look relatively purplish).

Anyway these are cheap TVs after all for watching video not displaying UIs. It's cool to experience all this screen space for the first time, I'm surrounded by corn lol (it just changed.) I need to get a few DVI to HDMI adapters, then I can use the real monitors which should perform much better (the Dell monitor I fixed which is stuck in some "burn in" test mode looks to be really bright!).

i want a case that holds 1 or 2 3.5” hard drives and a raspberry pi and the power supply for all of it, as well as requisite sata/usb crap and fans. back should have ethernet and AC power input.

Social media isn't dying.

It's turning into broadcast media.

"Faltesek, of Oregon State University, conducted a two-year project to study exactly what kind of content TikTok pushes.

At the end of this exhaustive process of gathering data on TikTok’s algorithm, the conclusion became obvious: 'TikTok is television.'"

anyone have any theories what was in S25’s payload bay?

ibm plex mono light is the best programming font ever, fight me

@marcan the latter would make a cool album cover

@marcan tbh it’s sort of astounding how many ota releases and upgrades apple has done across such a wide range of devices in the wild WITHOUT bricking significant percentages of them, ever. they must quintuple check their work…

Successfully nerdsniped @chadmed into adding uclamp support to PipeWire, so now all our fancy DSP stuff will stick to an E-core at 600MHz (which is more than enough for it) to minimize power impact when just listening to music.

(We can do fancy scheduler stuff too, Apple!)

End-to-end torture testing.

If my speakers don't melt I think we'll enable speakers on j313 (M1 MBA) in one of the next few kernel updates, to test the waters.

Lol, Apple's attempted wriggling out of reasonable browser competition even hit El Reg:

It underlines the incoherence that iLeakage is *still* unpatched, leaving all iOS users unprotected because of the very monopoly Apple is spending $$$ lawyerbucks to protect.

maybe don't play trance at festivals then?
