Pocket keeps trying to show me food recipes for chicken dishes. Like... I'm vegan, though. Skynet is starting small.

Don't mind me, I'm just going to sit in my indignant rage cocoon.

Billion dollar idea. Snapchat/insta filters for feet pics.

@greyduck It might have a bunch of stuff in it, so be careful!

@greyduck lol right? looks like they added ogg support in 2017, so you'd think....

did they really just wait until the mp3 patent opened up to add ogg support?

@greyduck I see that as well, yeah. This just nukes the explorer shell process and forces it to reload

@greyduck an important note is that if I drop any other file in there, even empty, it stops doing that and behaves normally.

@banjofox I don't see any evidence of that, but it's possible I guess.

@banjofox no it's a hard explorer crash, causing it to reload the whole shell. if I put a readme or something in the directory, it stops crashing.

@greyduck not that full. I'm using oggenc to process a directory of 100+ files, then moving them to their own empty directory. crashes every time I browse to it, even with different sets of .wav files from different sources.

the files are relatively tiny -- sound effects for a game.

I'm torn between my admiration and love of the wild optimism and technological accomplishment of the spirit of human space exploration and my frustration and embarrassment at the selfish gaudiness of the entrepreneurial elite's willful neglect toward saving the planet we are on.

I think it has to do with some interplay between the windows web media extension pack and how explorer tries to be clever about the meta data it shows you in certain views. So I don't know if it requires special ogg meta tags or the default view has to be detail or what. YMMV

A directory full of only ogg files crashes Windows 10 file explorer, if you need to make that happen for some reason.

I'm working on audio for , today. It's super fun. doesn't particularly like mp3, so I'm working with ogg. I'm not sure why it has zero traction, it's a decent format.

It's just really weird seeing some many people, even on the fediverse, either forget or not care about Activision/Blizzard's politics and willingness to act as a cudgel against peaceful protesters on behalf of a totalitarian state. Like, I know you can permanently ditch software if you don't like the politics of the folks involved, so wtf people?

The fight doesn't end just because the news cycle churns.
