TIL sometimes "extended version" of a song means only about 20-30 seconds longer. Usually, I expect at least another minute or so.

Been hacking on yt-dlp all night. We're gonna be able to download CBC Gem videos, goddamnit!

Raspi foundation be cursed for not colour-encoding the GPIO. Take a look at the Asus tinker board ffs

I will add it's nice to be able to have "owner" as part of at least one job title for things like petition signing, as if to say "don't even bother trying to go up the food chain to retaliate, I *am* the top of the food chain, you fool".

employer (-), petition (+) 

so this is public now, and my union rep says we can share it:

Petition to get Google temps, vendors, and contractors the back pay Google owes them

Anyone can sign here:
They want a first and last name, but they don't have to be your legal name.


Poor Biden. His approval ratings are nearly down to Trump's all time high.

OK, that's it, no more politics today, I promise.

Everyone’s got their cartoon horny reaction. Like they see a pretty lady and their eyes pop out they head and they go AWOOGA! Mine is my eyes spin like slot reels that land on 7s and a giant neon sign that says JACKPOT lights up bright.

Bughouse on a chess server: the good, the bad, and the ugly
Note: this post was originally written back in late 2015. A lot of this is of mainly historical interest; the activity level on FICS has dropped off precipitously in the intervening time period of about six years. However, I still feel the story needs to be told, as...

"Dipping" into a new pinball spot
The Little Dipper on Main Street in downtown Houston had been on my list of pinball places to check out for some time. The last time I was in the area, though, there was a rainstorm blowing through the city. Instead of hanging back to get in a few games of pinball I decided to just go home and return another day. I didn't realize "another day" would be a few months later, though...

The first...

Odds and ends from the past month and change
I've gotten in the occasional round of pinball and arcade games here and there over the past couple of months, just haven't had any time to post until today. I will be checking out a new local venue in the next few days and I wanted to get these up before then.

In rough order: July 21 at Darkhorse Tavern (Mr. and Mrs. Pac-Man), August 4 at Little Woodrow's...

TIL fsck of an ext2 filesystem on a 128GB USB 3.0 thumb drive will take quite some time. I finally moved the drive to a different machine and it completed within the 15 minute timeout I set. I was afraid the drive had eaten it (relatively unused drive, too).

@joelschurter @ademalsasa xfce user here. The more desktops that are widely available the better. People should be able to find the tool that fits them best, not have to adapt to the one or two tools that are available.

Hey everyone, I finally got a job that i start tomorrow, which means this will hopefully be the last time i have to do this. Even tho i'm starting my job tomorrow, i will not have rent on time for September, which i need $200 for
i also need $150 to take my dog to the vet and get vaccine boosters, he is allowed to come to work with me and it is a high priority that he's able to as he helps me with my anxiety and also cannot be home alone due to not getting along with one of the other dogs in the house

I really appreciate everything y'all have done for me, and im hoping to be able to give back soon

Ubuntu users, please take note, and boost if possible, this bug report about installer issues with Orca. The OS installer is the first thing many users will experience of an OS, and since, for better or worse, Ubuntu is the "flagship" end-user-facing Linux distro, accessibility should be kinda important. I know, volunteers and accessibility don't pay the bills and all that. Whatever. I'm done discussing that, I'm tired of excuses. Below is a link to the bug report:

OnlyFans is suspending their planned policy change that would have banned sexual material on their website

PSA because some people don't seem to know that. Those weird barcodes found on letters contain your zip/postal code (which in some places can point to really specific location). You may want to blur them out when posting photos of letters online.
