Love to see my MacBook down to a crawl because kernel_task eats 700% of the CPU for seemingly no reason 🙃

I swear the fact that you can't do /any/ advanced network stuff on OSX (like forcing a network band) is infuriating when dealing with badly set up networks.

Either that or how to get into the admin of a TP-Link repeater so I can maybe make it work lmao

Love having the hotel wifi being apparently served by 2 differents devices with 3 differents BSSID, 1 SSID and 1 device out of the 3 that somehow doesn't work so my laptop randomly connects to it and I can’t use the internet..

If anyone knows how to force a WiFi BSSID/channel on macOS that’d be nice. Everything I tried doesn’t work and it’s getting annoying lol

tips for newcomers

follow, boost and fave all you like! we don't care about follow ratios and faves are private. go hog wild!

boosting your own posts is 100% ok. no shame. the TL is chronological, so there's no algorithm to fight.

please do use CWs. if in doubt, use one just to be safe.

hashtags are your friends and really the only effective way to search for posts. be sure to use them to maximize your reach.

don't be afraid to engage. dumping pictures is fine but stay and chat a bit too!

It's 5am and I'm awake so I guess let's go watching Smash at EVO

So somehow I made it in my hotel room in Paris and I'm weirdly not tired yet after being awake for more than 20h? 🤔

(Also can the heat chill the fuck out please, I'm melting over here 😭)

While we’re on weird UI stuff, somehow the LTE logo got way bigger in beta 5 and this looks weird to me

I know it’s all beta stuff but, I just noticed this in iOS13b5 and I really wish I didn’t

Like, the playlist I got today is legit 6 songs in a row who all can be summarized by "Wanabee electronic music with French vocals about a random girl"

Special shout-out to that one track who had a sample from the Parisian metro :')

Me: *likes one song by a French electronic/pop-like band*

Apple Music the week after: Here you go mate, I filled your New Music Mix with only songs from French bands you've never heard of.

Apple Music isn't very subtle is what I'm saying

Can we have planes that have a regular, soothing motion like trains do so I can fall asleep in them? Thanks

And like every time I fly a long flight I get to play the game of:
Will I get some sleep in the plane or have to be awake after 24h without sleep when I land??

Me: yeah I’m flying tomorrow to Paris, no big deal


Also the said hub is so warm I swear I could fry a small egg on it, which probably doesn't help anything.

I'm still very new to USB-C ~things~ but is that expected that a USB-C hub's power delivery would only deliver less than 10W to my Macbook Pro?

I don't know if it's "expected" or if it's just the hub being bad.
