I literally thought I would be able to move on and forget this but OH MY GOD I CANNOT LOOK AWAY FROM THIS TRAIN WRECK. (That said I am not connecting to new freenode and all my connections have been dropped so from here on out it's second hand and copy/pastas from the rumor mongers on Libera.chat.)
#freenode is burning the old network to the ground. They are abandoning all registration databases and swapping the server software for their own fork. Also they've banned all of IRCCloud, Kiwiirc, and mibbit in what is presumed to be a bid to force users onto the freenode BNC which is doing *god knows what*.
Also today is bored, with no real work tasks, and impatient for my new computer that won’t arrive till tomorrow when I also have house guests and my husband has planned a vacation NEXT weekend and Pride is this weekend so basically I get all of like 4 out of the next 10 days to fuss with my new computer and brain is in waiting mode and forcing me to ramble endlessly into the void on Mastodon day so feel free to mute me for a while.
So if I can do No Man’s Sky over wireless in the den, that would be preferred even if the Reverb G2 is a decent upgrade in resolution and FOV. If the wireless just can’t get there, though, I’ll probably be forced to do wired Virtual Desktop and put my old gaming rig in the den as an overpowered Steam Link box. Lmao.
I mean I’m not tho. Not yet. Before I get into crazy land I’m gonna see if my massive upgrade makes NMS playable over Virtual Desktop. The problem is wired VR = same room as gaming rig = shared office with the husband. I have the weird thing of I show affection by doing things in the same space as someone and moving my gaming rig into the den would make me feel like I’m an cold asshole despite whatever he may say to the opposite effect.
making calls on Loki so spoilers if I’m right
Owen Wilson is secretly trying to over throw the TVA. “Evil” Loki is just trying to get rid of the TVA that tried to kill him. Loki has been a variant innumerable times. The Timekeepers aren’t good. They’re just who won the timeline war and the sacred timeline is the tyranny of conquerors. The “war” was really just timelines protecting themselves from the time keepers or similar. All this ends with a return to branching timelines AND THE MULTIVERSE.
Related: SSID splits are done and bandwidth limits applied. Now to figure out how to vlan them. I think I'll shelve that for a week or so.
Rebooting everyone involved seems to have fixed the issue. Jesus. Why is networking so fucking insanely hard?
