(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 ✨

Forgot what rain felt like but I'm not complaining that it's there because, y'know, drought and stuff

I'm just glad they killed the touchbar and brought hdmi, the sd card reader and magsafe back, man.

I'm an external display(s) person so i think idk about that notch, just give me the 14inch MBP with bonkers CPU and GPU thanks.

ALSO the app kept missing some subtitle lines??? Like??? Pretty regularly??? What the fuck. Good thing it was never during very important lines but HECK.

Show thread

English closed captioning would have been very useful at times when the characters spoke in broken English so i didn't have to rewind to get what was said (no diss on the actors, I'm not a native speaker so CC subs are sometimes very necessary depending on the accent)

Show thread

Relatedly for some reason the Netflix AppleTV app wasn't showing the same set of subtitles as the web version? So I had no English closed captioning? What's the reason behind this? I have a hard time believing there's a technical reaosn behind it .-.

Show thread

I still have two episodes left so maybe I'll stand corrected! But so far nothing really surprised me plot-wise so I struggle to get the hype.

Show thread

Is it just the aesthetics? Because the plot is a battle royale with extra steps let's be honest.
Like, if you're blown away by the visuals/art direction/music (which are not even that exceptional lmao) let me tell you about an obscure medium known as: animation.

Show thread

I guess Squid Game can look completely wild if you're used to, like, sanitized, grey-ass shows.
But, like, outside of the neat aesthetics so far I'm seeing every twist coming. It's entertaining but I don't get why everyone is raving about it lmao

In stupid, SF news: saw a Ι΄κœ°α΄› giveaway ad disguised as a "have you seen my dog" paper tract.

Maybe I should print out a "anti-crypto action" thing and stick it on top of it lmao

ALTHOUGH, all that new content means my physical release of the soundtrack will soon be obsolete by lacking all those new tracks and I hope they do something with those....

Show thread

I can't believe the Animal Crossing 2.0 update is hyping me up to go back on the game despite having lost interest almost a year ago. Nicely done.

It is estimated that one Bitcoin transaction takes 1544 kWh to be processed.

Quick back of the envelope calculation: with that energy my car can run for 7125 km, so basically a short drive from Brussels, Belgium to Kabul, Afghanistan.

One transaction.
