Can I recommend y’all go watch some Technology Connections?

It’s a really good YouTube channel run by this guy called Alec and he talks about the history of technology.

He’s done series on analog television, artificial sound and recording technology, and my favorite, the story of LaserDisc, which you can watch here: youtube.com/playlist?list=PLv0

Go give it a look!

a wide brush of generalization can do more harm than good, so be very careful when making generalized statements.

I speak from experience.

Warning about RTX Voice. it's set to autostart by a scheduled task, and it indefinitely prevents windows from sleeping.

Made a point to closely examine the local dimming feature of my monitor.
For those who don't know: local dimming is when instead of having one backlight, you have many small ones, and each can just turn off if unneeded.
You need like, at least 20 zones for it to be worthwhile, and this monitor is very silly for having just 8.
Cool to see it in action though.

Recently found "Baba is You" and wow, this is a wonderful game. Logic problems, where you must reach the goal by redefining what the goal _is_. If you're a programmer or otherwise interested in challenging yourself to a game where the rules keep changing- definitely give this a look (steam/switch) youtu.be/z3_yA4HTJfs

if anyone is looking for a "read it later" service- I just wanna give a shoutout to wallabag.it/en .
Been using it for over a year now, definitely happy with the hosted service. Open source / host your own is an option too.

A thing dream me said: "you ever feel like you have too much blood?"

Am I being incepted by a vampire?

In general I dislike the fail meter/condition, which often makes punishment feel inconsistent and arbitrary. Sometimes you are buffered from 10 mistakes- but when you think you're doing OK 1 mistake will fail you. It sucks hard.
The worst part is- since the game is really poor at communicating what you did wrong, I have no idea if this is down to psvr tracking issues or if I just suck. If I do just suck, how do I improve when I don't know why I failed...

There are many moments where I "feel" I hit the target, but the game thinks I missed. The controller doesn't vibrate as expected, and that throws you off- like suddenly your hand just went through a wall. When this happens I probably just failed the song entirely. It's very hard to recover from this.

Of the official songpacks, there are many unfun songs that are just spam fests, or "hah we have tricky timing that isn't really in sync with the music". Timings are poorly indicated in general. I wish there was a "too fast" or "too slow" indicator.

Trying to sign up for some forum, I just failed enough of their 70's-acid-themed-text captchas that I am not allowed to try signing up again for 24 hours -_-
