This leaves me with either C (bleh no thank you) or Rust.

I've avoided Rust because chasing nightly sucks.

I feel like Sideshow Bob stepping on rakes non-stop.

ugh the GNAT compiler is giving me relocation errors for riscv64, and it seems to be impossible to get a good aarch64 GNAT build.

I can make the GNAT build for aarch64, but I can't use the bb-runtimes repo to build a runtime because it requires files that AdaCore hasn't released to the community

I give up.

Yeah, I had an 800XL as a kid. I have a Ultimate 1MB in my current one, but I've never gotten around to installing the VBXL because mine is a fully socketed model. The case will not close with a VBXL in it.

And now we know how Tim Sweeney is maintaining that net worth of US$9.6 BILLION

After all this time complaining about Apple’s App Store fees, Epic Games announces that they charge 95%:

> An Epic Games Store example: if your supporters purchase $100 of games, you’ll earn $5 (at the base Epic-funded rate).

Ain't that something.

I wish you could make Firefox sync the "never ask for my location" setting across browsers

I bid on a DEC Pro 350 hard drive controller that popped up on eBay. Starting bid was $25.

Went for $262.

hahahahahaha NOPE

RT @RetroBC_Pete
Does anyone out there remember or even still own one of these double drives? Do you know what machine or system they were used with? Both @NotObsoleteKent and @computermuseum have one with no information other than it is marked “STC” on the back. Please RT if possible

Thanks for breaking my CI builds by renaming keys in the config without a deprecation period, GitLab! So developer friendly of you!

I was going to go to bed but I feel compelled to watch the last episode of The Umbrella Academy

I've giving up on BookWyrm for a while - it's not storing things I post (like, when I start reading a book and finish it)

The music director for The Umbrella Academy is fantastic!

This remodel of my basement has a bunch of stuff to be fixed. I don't even want to live here anymore.

And I loved my house before this.

Show thread

It's time to start selling off my furniture and some other stuff.

Time to reduce what I have here to get ready to sell the house and move.

A few projects to finish around here first, and then I'll get the house emptied out and move in to mom's house while this house is listed.

I am legit obsessed with dashcam videos of dumb ass drivers.
