    Unfortunately I don't know how to help you. I met my friends in secondary school and we have been friends since then.

  • Are there any open source keyboard with handwriting support?

    I'm a Hongkonger and often need to type in Chinese. While I can use input methods like Cangjie or Quick, I much prefer handwriting to keep in mind how to write the characters in a digital age.

    So far, I have only seen open source keyboards without handwriting support. Does any of them exist?

  • P(A|B) means the conditional probability of event A happening if B has happened. It is defined as P(A∩B)/P(B).

    The equation show is the Bayes' Rule. It shows the relationship between P(A|B) and P(B|A). This is useful in Bayesian statistics (of course why would it not be) as you change your probability distribution based on the data observed, and almost every time it's easier to find the value by swapping the events.

    Pulseaudio sink name for default

    I have 2 physical output devices, say "speakers" and "headphones", and I frequently switch between them.

    I also have a script that creates 2 virtual sinks for voice call and game by loading module-combine-sink twice on "speakers" and "headphones".

    It works, but it's annoying that every time I want to switch device, I also need to mute the other one.

    Ideally, I want to use module-remap-sink instead, remapping the 2 virtual sinks to the default one. This is where I'm stuck. What do I put in for master?

    No more Gmod Splatoon animations

    You can drive for 1 minute in Hong Kong and cross a district. Your mind cannot comprehend this.

    Pipewire freezes after initial login or screen blank

    For a few months now, Pipewire has been acting in weird ways. Before I upgraded to Plasma 6, after a screen blank (not suspend) no media can be played. For example, YouTube player is in the loading state for a long time, eventually playing without sound, VLC doesn't start for a few minutes.

    I have to restart the Pipewire Systemd service to fix it. This restart process takes much longer than usual (<1 seconds). Sometimes it takes up to 5 minutes.

    Now with Plasma 6, it also does the same after the initial login. I'm guessing this is because Plasma ignores some KWIN_X11_* env var?

    However, if I restart the Pipewire service prior to playing any media after login or screen blank, it takes <1 seconds and everything plays correctly.

    This seems to be the problem with the HDMI audio only, as switching to the USB headphones (before screen blanks) prevents this from happening.

    How should I start troubleshooting this? What other details should I provide?

    I need a Fediverse slogan

    I'm working on a presentation about the Fediverse, and would like to end the presentation with a slogan. Any ideas?

    Edit: I probably should've specified more stuff. This is an informative presentation, not persuasive, and I don't plan to get into the enshittification. Ideally I don't want to include any corporations.

    Edit 2: My title is "The Future is Everywhere"

    Does wind power cause visual pollution in your opinion?

    I remember reading somewhere (probably my high school textbook) that one of the reasons people don't like wind power being built is they cause visual pollution.

    In my opinion, I think it would be pretty cool to just look out my window and see a giant windmill there, the opposite of visual pollution.
