Wrote a device tree overlay for GamePi43 that replaces the userspace "retrogame" daemon. This seems to improve the latency by quite a bit. https://gist.github.com/PeterCxy/68bb5bb8bf3c8c69bd2b6a57423fee35
In case any of you haven't noticed yet: I have set up a Weblate interface for translation contributions to Shelter. Hopefully this will be much easier for translators to use compared to sending translated XML files over email / pull requests https://weblate.typeblog.net/projects/shelter/shelter/
Every time I see a post about how Mastodon did not meet the author's expectation of a non-toxic social media, I am tempted to send this to them but then I realize it makes no sense if someone already leaves. I think Mastodon people should instead stop selling Mastodon as a single entity or a "less toxic" place because that is not an expectation Mastodon will ever be able to fully meet.
Mastodon isn't and has never been "a less toxic social media platform than Twitter". Touting it as one or even just having such a notion of it being one is inherently fallacious, because toxicity is not linked to platforms; it is linked to people. Because Mastodon is not a single entity, absolutely no control can be exerted beyond the instance one owns / one is on, so as the user base grows, the toxicity will only increase in a rate faster than Twitter does. That is not something preventable unless Mastodon goes full proprietary and walled-garden.
My dream mobile phone:
1) Plastic- or metal-back with matt finish
2) Flat front display
3) Thin bezels without a notch or punch hole; if not possible just get rid of front camera
4) < 160g
5) Proper colors without oversaturated nonsense
6) Easily unlockable bootloader without fuse nonsense
For now Pixel 4a matches some of these but still, I'd really want one that matches all of them
Also I broke my nylon guitar strings for this song
I literally cannot get this song out of my head
I will probably not do this again for another year or two, as now my default post visibility is follower-only and the account has been locked.
So the lesson here is to avoid Sony?
