Pinned toot

Heyo, I'm Jo. I'm a 30-something BSc Computer Science who just happens to be one of them trans (She/Her, btw).

I get (rightfully tbh) angry about the sorry state of today's software, construct things in meatspace (mostly containers and boxes) and dig into game files for fun and profit. Mostly just fun. I also like old computers and consoles. 💻

I also run this little patch of land that is my own personal Masto instance. It's not open for registration, I'm afraid.

instance block 

Oh, the admin of freethinkers.lgbt apparently spun up another bad instance, freespeech.group, that I hadn't heard of before. Came across it on federated, a post about "fuck FSF's 35th since they canned RMS" and complaining about "woke bullshit," cf. freespeech.group/notice/A3e4ev

Here's a helpful post about their other presences: freespeech.group/notice/A3XQEn

Blocked. #fediblock

The old BD drive it replaced needed just over 1A on each voltage 2 years apparently made a ton of difference. O.o

Welp. That optical drive I ordered? It needs 5V@1.9A and 12V@3A, and attempting to even just read a DVD causes the piss-weak 12V@2A wall wart I was using to dim a little and power cycle the enclosure.

I think I need a 4A supply? Is that right? :blobwaitwhat:

Gods, the Netflix Marvel movies referring to the Battle of New York as "The Incident" feels painfully corny.

I really need to set up UAE and play Tobias Richter's Star Trek game again.

Well that's weird. Knocking the window resolution down a notch got Chocolate running at 35 consistently.

Show thread

Okay, it seems to be sticking to 35 FPS on my x86 laptop, so it seems to be more Pi-specific. :blobtilt:

Which is odd because Crispy seems okay and Chocolate doesn't seem to be using more than half a core.

Show thread

I'm not sure why Chocolate Doom is struggling to do more than 29 FPS while Crispy can manage a constant 35 but now that's going to drive me up the wall. :blobsob:

I was also reminded that animated movie Planet 51 was made by the creators of the Commandos series of games.

I always thought the "Cool S" was the Gargoyles S. :blobnervous:

As many GPs are unfamiliar with trans healthcare, GenderGP's put together an informative introduction to such:

It's from a UK perspective, with references throughout to relevant British medical organisations and NHS practices, but there's plenty that's universally applicable. ^_^

Welp, the HDMI splitter that's supposedly an HDCP stripper didn't do jack shit. So I guess I'm stuck with using an ugly USB soundcard dongle for the time being.
