Responsible guidance is a choice
  • there was a time when I saw a food show on tv about steamed burger place. I thought it seemed easy enough so I tried making it myself. The burger runoff water/grease left over got dumped next to a tree in my yard. For the next several weeks everyone walking their dog would have to wrangle it awag from the spot because they would zoom in as soon as they smelled it. I also tried dumping it on the road thinking the rain would wash it away but the rain just chilled and hardened it and dogs would lick it up, further distressing their humans.

    edit: also recommend trying the food. steamed cheese is spoogy and really neat on burger

  • Could a gaming PC be a good thing in a nursing home?
  • I found I could do some fairly nauseating shit by removing the shroud so my peripheral is RL. like compound running, running in RL while also analog stick running in game. I think it was asgards wrath 2 I was dkinng that in to bypass the stamina restrictions. removing the shroud didnt help grandma though.

  • Valorant on PS5 won’t support gyro aiming, to ensure Xbox players aren’t at a disadvantage
  • its good on controller but I mainly game on steam deck and I hate it on steam deck. too heavy and hard to get the sweet spot of avoiding accidental input and not having too high or too low sensitivity. I need a steam controller 2.

    but yeah you can do stuff like fast/coarse move with stick and slow/precision with gyro and do compound movement of both at the same time, for example tilting against the stick if you overshoot or with the stick if the aim comes short, or adding up or down hairline adjustment on gyro while doing just right or left on the stick. weird at first but I can do it better than mouse aim on controllers with good implementaion.

  • Trying Linux after using Windows for decades
  • I had an nvidia card in my possession briefly recently. when I was testing it I found distros that have a separate nvidia installer image are the way to go if you dont want to have a shit time. Converting a standard image post install is about as much of a shit task as it was back when I had a gtx 460. once its set up either way it seems mostly fine but I already had a more recent amd card and don't want to deal with the kernel module crap. dkms has failed me a few times in the old days and I never forgave it.

  • ID help

    Saw these while looking at apartments but have no idea what they are. they were found mostly on carpet, but some were in other parts of the unit.

    edit: after looking up the suggestion of carpet beetle I am fairly convinced that it is indeed what they are. I also saw a few adult beetles that look like one of the species found in photos online. thanks everyone.


    Reverse emmc/microsd adapter

    So I used something like these some years ago to recover data off a phone, but I was wondering if the reverse is possible in having a bga soldered adapter with a microsd slot on top. Or if PCBs can even be soldered together like that. I've never actually checked if bga chips have raised pads or something. The purpose would be for rapidly testing custom firmware for shitty old devices that were designed to be replaced without removing the emmc to flash it separately.


    Companion plants

    Its been a decade or two since I've had any sort of plants growing but when I was last trying to grow I was looking into companion plants. There are some that are pretty much ancient standards like beans corn and squash, but does anyone know plants that have a similar beneficial relationship with cannabis?


    Is there much performance difference in ad blocking options?

    I'm currently using the blocklists included with unbound in opnsense on a mini PC and I have used pihole on a pi which now operates my 3d printers instead. I haven't tried any of the other network wide options. Has anyone made any blog posts or similar detailing performance testing of different options?

    I have an 8 person household with each person having at least a phone and computer and probably some consoles or something. I haven't noticed any obvious differences but whitelisting seemingly can't be done in bulk efficiently with my current setup.

    We are all going to be moving in the coming months so I am revisiting different aspects of the home network and trying to figure out what can be improved and if anything is irritating enough in it's current state to tolerate a potential performance loss.


    Scroll/slide sensitivity and button touch precision.

    Would it be feasible to increase the minimum movement to start sliding a post left or right? I keep accidentally initiating the slide when trying to scroll up or down.

    I also find some menu navigation requires what feels like too much precision or touching the text bounding box and not a space/button with the text in it. I mostly find this when navigating the long press to block a community from a post. It has taken as many as 3 tries and a different thumb attempt to have the press registered.


    Does anyone know what to call this sort of fan optimization or have any reading material on how it works or how to design them?

    I'm trying to find out what purpose this type of design serves and how they are designed but have hit a wall with knowing what to even look for.

    This piece of the voron stealthburner is the only example I can think of off the top of my head but I have seen them before in some sort of fan duct or funnel thing.

    I've been doing modding on the deck with just the deck.

    So I've run mods on a bunch of different games which were downloaded and installed with the deck alone. No man's sky, lethal company, Subnautica, etc. with generally no problems but some modding software run through wine had visual bugs but the games worked as intended.

    So I thought I'd try something bigger and install fallout ttw. I installed the base games from gog without issue, and MO2 ran fine with my overridden default of wine-ge. Even the ttw installer seems to work... slowly. I started it two days ago and the picture is now. I guess some mods you really are better off using a beefier computer and transferring the final product.


    Seven ringed fingers on hand, wow on just one single hand!

    Dall e 3 via bing. The only way I could get it to all consistently plain rings not reminiscent of LOTR was making it Sonic's hand... with too many fingers?


    Any hayate no gotoku experts able to identify a chapter?

    I'm looking for a chapter where hayate faces off against a group referred to as something along the lines of elite four. It may have been four devas/kings/etc. instead. Rather than four though there were way more, they were censored, yet clearly major characters from several popular anime at the time. I recall lelouche and the four main pilots of 0 Gundam, but there were more.

    I feel like it was closer to the beginning than the end but it's actually such a slog rereading it and I'm starting to feel like I might be wrong, and my guessing has not worked out.
