@Sir_Boops a 48% drop in revenue... The month after Christmas 🤔
@piecritic it's not as convenient as it once was, sure. I'm just saying there's a solution, and I haven't found a better one. There are ~745,000 perfect FLACs on RED right now.
@piecritic File sharing lives on, but the community realized that private trackers are better for archival than public trackers. I'm hard-pressed to find a CD release that RED doesn't have a FLAC rip of, but perhaps my taste doesn't venture far enough from mainstream for that to be a problem.
If you want to support the artists, that's another issue, but any artists on Bandcamp are easy to support without a giant cut being taken.
@quad this is the only workflow I've found to be effective to convert/transfer music to an Android phone:
- Use flac2all to scan for changes to my main FLAC music directory, converting any new files to a lossy directory
- Use adb-sync to transfer the lossy directory to my phone
flac2all can copy all non-FLAC files to the lossy directory as they are.
@robots Considering all the exploits I've seen have been for the desktop app, which most Signal users don't know about / use, I doubt it.
@robots the VAs ruined it for me. I couldn't get past the first episode. I'd just read the manga if I were you.
@robots years ago my dad stormed up to my room, woke me up, and angrily demanded to know what kind of porn I'd been watching. He had run into a cryptolocker with a scare screen. "This is the government, you have committed digital crimes, pay us money or we'll arrest you", yada yada.
He cooled down once I explained that the *real* FBI doesn't usually forgive crimes after you pay them $500 in bitcoin.
@quad Did you use their omnibus install? That's going to need more beef than setting up each component yourself.
GitLab requires way too much RAM for what it is, but I've yet to find a better self-hosted git frontend for professional orgs. Gitea is fine for personal code hosting, though.
It's depressing seeing people vilify people who have political views at odds with theirs. Part of it is the increasing radicalization of social beliefs in general, for which social media bubbles are partially responsible.
It saddens me to see people strip others of their humanity and view them as an "other" that needs to be destroyed. I have to wonder if honest political discourse is even possible across ideological lines anymore.
@Pasty Agreed. Not sure how people can use a 3DS without 3D tbh, the 240p screen really needs the depth.
@karen how cheap?
wait that's not how you spell it
