the entire concept of memory is fucked up when u really think about it. how like it or not, when some piece of data is in there, your brain will pull it up when it finds a reason to and put it back into your conscious mind for you to deal with.

Paraphrasing, but this is what I just heard in a meeting, from the same person:

"We can't use open source because it's too much work."

"We cobbled together a bunch of proprietary services to create a complete workflow, but those tools weren't working, so we're switching to a monolithic proprietary service that doesn't provide the same functions, and we'll cobble other proprietary services on top of it to round it out."

Since I've been negative for a bit here's something positive: you should go read the blog posts on the mGBA site, there's lots of interesting and fun technical write-ups about lots of stuff tangentially related to emulation:
mgba.io/tag/debugging/
mgba.io/tag/hardware/

Unfortunately the blog has been limited to mGBA release posts for a while but the posts that are there are pretty great. Also mGBA itself is my favorite GBA emulator and my second-favorite Game Boy emulator (and some point in the future it'll probably be my favorite DS emulator) so you should use it

Mara posted a fantastic article about Converting u128 values to f64 (unsigned 128-bit integers to 64-bit floating-point numbers), give it a read!

If you are new to the fedi and not finding it the community driven space you were made to feel it would be where you can know your mods and the people around you: get off mastodon social or mastodon online.

For a lot of you, one of those will have been your landing point here. They each have an *enormous* number of users and moderation teams that struggles to keep up. They also don't have blocklists that are as complete as others.

Smaller instances are a very different experience to that.

Had a bit of a galaxybrain moment just now:

I'm always getting distracted online. But, what if I just put my laptop into airplane mode? Boom, no more distractions.

This isn't always viable but now that I'm self-employed and know my tools inside-out, its a lot more viable than it used to be.

i used an iphone for the first time in like 5+ years last night and i felt like i'm a million years old. what happened to the big button you push to go back to the home screen. the person whose phone it was told me their password and i still could not figure out how to unlock it. i am a professional computer pervert and i was reduced to cinders at the hands of apple UX
