I mean, look at this actual pain in the dick.
mold 1.5.0 was released yesterday with support for RISC-V, PPC, and SPARC and zstd compressing debuginfo 🚀
@jbauer I saw a post from @jookia on this topic which is enlightening as well. Looks like newer CPUs are looking to dissipate about 300W and GPUs close to 1000W. Assuming this combination of hardware, in the USA, 1300W is awfully close to most outlets' 1500W maximum supported power. Beyond that, and you'll be tripping breakers without rewiring the house (either thicker gauge wiring, or going to 220V outlets like what the washer and dryer uses, or routing a dedicated circuit from the main breaker panel to your office just for the PC).
Of course, if the PC is sitting idle or is not under heavy load, it will probably not draw that much power. But, if you are using it for its intended purpose, which might include gaming and or bitcoin mining (because you know it will happen), you can be absolutely assured that this thing will be drawing as much power as your refrigerator, microwave oven, clothes or dish washer, and dryer.
On this day in 1983, Stanislav Petrov saved the world.
“87% of Microsoft employees feel as though they are more productive while working from home, whereas 80% of Microsoft’s managerial layer thinks workers are less productive.“
in conclusion, workers should make their own businesses and bosses should do all the work their employees currently do
annals of capitalist neopuritanism, continued: this game was banned by Google for this indecent drawing of a female-presenting belly button.
of course the real problem isn't the belly pornography, but the fact that Hook Up: The Game is a melancholic narrative about modern dating life and bullying trauma, from a female PoV, i.e. it's the biggest sexual taboo: female agency. anyone familiar with gatcha games knows that the Google Play Store will happily host games where you undress and squish schoolgirls like "Moe Ninja Girls Sexy School" or "Ariah Fantasy RPG Waifu Gacha" etc. (actual examples.)
so far nothing new, but what's interesting about this case is that the person doing the censorship let the mask down:
> [Play Store helpdesk drone:] Regarding your concern about escalation, I am the highest form of escalation. Next to me is God. Do you wanna see God?
people online are calling this cringe; as for me, it gives me chills. I have a lot of Christianity-related chills these days.

@considermycatjohn it's a trend; the oligopolies are all banning unlawful pornographies from the public-facing platforms, relegating them to specifically porn silos where they can be controlled and monetised as pariahs, in a recreation of how sex work is treated irl. these days you can't sell porn on ebay, wear cleavage on twitch, or draw yuri sticker commissions on patreon. in many cases, banks and credit cards are pressuring the platforms to marginalise sex; it's the commandment of capitalism itself, the owners are happy to hurt their own profits if it's the price of social control. as I often insist, capitalism isn't about greed or reckless hedonism or wealth or profits; it's about power.
@brainblasted honestly I feel pretty convinced that the biggest barrier to being a good artist is being okay with being a terrible artist for a very long time, and persisting regardless
I read a review once of a new model of Tesla that had a bug that caused it to slam on the brakes at unpredictable intervals. The reviewer said it was unsafe and undriveable.
And then, according to their metrics, gave it high marks for being comfortable and stylish and having trunk space and affordability and the stereo system. It scored a 7 overall.
Maybe if it exploded into a fireball, it would decline to a 6.5.
Metrics are meant to increase "transparency" and fairness, but they fail spectacularly at both. Ethical investment indexes become a way to hide worker injuries and wage theft. Or carbon that's consumed in unexpected ways, like driving truck around in circles because it's cheaper than warehouse space.
Every metric we have is an abstracted lie. And meta analysis only makes it more lying. And these are the metrics we're trying to use to make the world better and to cut carbon.
Capitalism cannot fix itself.
What's worse is that their models have absolutely absurd polygon counts, which means Prusa Slicer _struggles_ to import them.
I love the Steam Deck, but I think it is very disappointing Valve doesn't offer any way to notify them a Steam Deck compatibility review was incorrect.
For example, Psychonauts is listed as Playable. However, if you actually try to play it on the Steam Deck, your camera is perpetually moving right (it's an SDL joystick issue), making the game completely unplayable and even nauseating to have running.
But there is literally no way to mark this, so ProtonDB is again the only option...
