(re)introduction 

Been here for a while but I've always been lazy and never did this so here we go:

I'm Damien (he/him), from France, living in California, I post about:
- computers
- nerd/weeb shit
- music
- meta stuff
- programming
- politics sometimes (fuck nazis and terfs)
- video games
- i probably forgot some other things b/c it's late and stuff

And that's mostly it ✨

"...in my humble but correct opinion, Mozilla should be doing two things and two things only:

* Building THE reference implementation web browser, and
* Being a jugular-snapping attack dog on standards committees.
* There is no 3.

"... At this point, I assume Mozilla's voice on the standards committees has all the world-trembling gravitas of "EFF writes amicus brief.""

When will @SlackHQ let me open a thread in a separate window? Am I supposed to keep switching between 3 threads in a tiny sidebar until the end of time?

If you want to democratize tech, don't start with people who are already into tech. Go to actual craft fairs and figure out what little old ladies need from tech that is either a) not being met or b) being met by super-expensive corporate shit.

Like. Why isn't there a raspberry pi workshop/booth at the county fair? Why are you relying on normal people to seek you out instead of meeting them where they are?

What’s a perfect album and why Gorillaz’s Demon Days is one of them.

Has anyone made iOS14 widgets that are basically Stardock Fences but on iOS? I feel like there's something to do here.

Feel free to share you faves iOS wallpapers because frankly my collection is pretty stale and idk where to look lol

So we're doing iOS14 homescreens? here it is.

Really like the widgets has a way to have icons start lower on the screen and App Library is dope because I can finally have only one page of apps I use almost every day and toss the rest away.

It's not like I'm deaf on one ear or whatever, it's just i distinctly remember some sound being at a specific volume and now they sound more muted/harder to hear and I tried multiple times on multiple headphones, multiple music players and it's constantly like that so.....

Like, over the past few weeks/months i've had instances of "huh, this song sounds different than i remember" and I dont know if:
- Somehow iCloud Music Library fucked with my files (unlikely?)
- macOS' sound is doing weird shit
- I'm getting deafer

Show thread

tfw you don't know if you have stereo issues due to software or if you're getting harder of hearing in one ear 😬

The Undertale concert makes me want to do yet-another-Pacifist run, I feel like I could use some Undertale this year.
