Pinned toot

I released an EP of tracks that wanted to be married to each other a long time ago.

How does it sound to be adrift in empty space?

Hello. I am the kind of nerd that is able to juggle pixels and vector graphics with ease, emulate sidechain compression using envelopes and use an unsigned int as a bit mask.

If you are a similar kind of nerd I'd like to talk to you. If you are a different kind of nerd I'd like to talk to you as well.

I've never seen an HDMI to 2x Ethernet adapter before. The explanation on the page is very vague but it seems to transmit the video signal via dual Ethernet cables with an adapter on either side.

Is that a thing? What's the benefit compared to an HDMI cable? Just the better shielding of CAT6? I'm confused

My eyes are still asleep. WTF is an entropy size limit? Oh … entrypoint size limit, I see

In welcher Form geben eure Firmen/Arbeitgeber in die Open-Source-Community zurück wenn ihr von OSS profitiert?

"Castlevania III no Densetsu or whatever" is such a good remaster of the Castlevania III soundtrack and its japanese counterpart Akumajo Densetsu, preserving both the depth of the additional voices of the Famicom VRC6 expansion chip and the clarity of the NES version.

In 1886 the Germans invented the car and since then their inventions have been pretty lame. X-rays (meh). Aspirin (whatevs). The computer (the what?). But in 2020 everything changed... I give you: the premixed, squeezable Spätzle bag. If only Karl Benz had lived to see this day..

The gamble might be worth it for you because these sell for as low as 5 bucks a piece

PSA: You might actually get a fully featured R4 cart when you buy a "208in1" or similar Nintendo DS cart from places like Ali Express. The SD card is prefilled but you can just load your own ROMs onto it, including for the emulators. This one even works in an up-to-date 3DS

Is it still "playing on original hardware" if I'm playing the Game Boy Advance remake of Final Fantasy VI, originally released for the Super Nintendo, on a Nintendo DS Lite, the successor of the Nintendo DS which in turn eventually replaced the Nintendo Game Boy Advance? It's the furthest I can stretch the definition without involving an emulator.

Thanks to the few people who bought some of my music. Your generosity is much appreciated <3

How does your favorite MarkDown renderer handle this? pastebin.com/raw/qqnTLDGJ

… and does anyone know if it should even have a defined result?

Today, a work contact asked that we do an online meeting instead of a physical one, because the app had warned them that they had had a risk contact to a confirmed SARS-CoV-2 carrier. Glad to see this working, and glad to be on the end of a possibly-cut infection chain!

Huh, turns out it pays to look at what new contracts the ISP is offering, especially after a recent acquisition.

I was able to upgrade from 120 Mbit/s down, 5 Mbit/s up to 500 Mbit/s down, 25 Mbit/s up for only two bucks extra a month.
