How Much Is Your Time Worth?
  • Unless you're actually using the time that it frees up to make more money, that's not a useful exercise. If you're just thinking that you could make more money, but you didn't actually do it, then you're just paying to have time to - whatever it is that you do with that time. Which could still be valid, but it's a different judgment proposition.

  • vlc.py -- setting the time in a song sets the song stuttering and it doesn't really recover

    This happens if I use set_time or set_position. Is this typical, or am I just not doing it right?

    This is on a Pi Zero 2 W, so not the most powerful, but should be able to handle this.

    These are the relevant bits of how I'm setting up the player:

    ``` self._vlc = vlc.Instance() self._player = self._vlc.media_player_new() self._list_player = self._vlc.media_list_player_new() self._list_player.set_media_player(self._player)

    playlist = self._vlc.media_list_new() for index in self._play_order: playlist.add_media(self._vlc.media_new_path(self._songs[index]))

    self._list_player.stop() self._list_player.set_media_list(playlist) self._list_player.play() ```

    And trying to seek is just this:

    self._player.set_time(_s_to_ms(seconds))

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    Bent RAM Clip

    I've somehow managed to bend a RAM clip so it can't clip anymore because it's blocking itself. I haven't been able to bend it back. Any suggestions?

    Silly 16 question

    Do anyone else's wrist hairs get caught in the little gap between the frame and the trackpad/spacers?

    Keybow OS

    Does anyone know if it's possible to have events from the Keybow keyboard cause effects on the Pi Zero W running the keyboard instead of outputting to another machine? Or do I need to go with a different OS and figure out the handling of the keys myself?

    Linux Mint battery tuning for Framework 16

    Not asking for password after hibernate?

    I just hibernated my laptop and then brought it back up, and it went straight into LMDE without asking me for a password on a lock screen. That seems.. like weird behavior. Is there something I can set to fix that?

    Fingerprint reader in LMDE 6 with Cinnamon?

    Anyone been able to set up a fingerprint reader in LMDE 6 with Cinnamon? I can use fprintd-enroll and fprintd-verify successfully, but it doesn't show up in pam-auth-update so I don't know how to add it to the login screen or the terminal.

    Linux Mint (LMDE 6) drivers for Framework 16?

    I know the drivers come in the distro package manager, but, is there a set straight from AMD? Trying to use Brave causes freezes and black screen flashes, which I'm pretty sure is a driver thing.

    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Outpost Control

    Is there any way to complete the Outpost Control job? It's that only (non-First Order) job I haven't completed, and I'm not sure how to. I thought maybe I'd need to install and retrieve the skimmer, but I did that today and it didn't progress the job chat.

    Edit: I've tried installing defenses on every panel, but that also didn't work. Next time I'm on planet, I'll try installing the skimmer and leaving it long enough to gather some credits.

    Edit2: Okay, I think maybe it doesn't actually complete until one faction gains control of the outpost for the day, and not enough people play for that to happen. Damn.

    Is there a /c/ for discussing Black Spire Outpost stuff?

    Integrated Login?

    So, I have a bunch of services behind Authelia, utilizing LDAP hosted on my NAS. I log in once and it carries through my other services that are secured by Authelia, which is great.

    However, since my wife rarely visits these services - mostly when I send her links - she has to log in basically every time. I've contemplated putting our laptops on a network login backed by the same LDAP, though I haven't started researching how to do that yet. If I do, though, is there a way to have the laptop login integrate with Authelia or another solution to prevent login prompts?

    I know I could do it with Windows and AD, but we're both on Linux, so that complicates things a bit.

    Cycle movie extra?

    Is there a way to set a movie extra to repeat endlessly? There's a fireplace feature that can cycle on the DVD but I'm not sure how to make it do that in Jellyfin. I have it in there as an extra.

    Is this a good deal?

    It seems good based on the price of just the CPU. If it's good, what kind of server case would it need?

    Advice on building a small PC/server

    Hello! I am doing some if-I-die planning, and I want to create a machine that is separate from my current homelab that can a) host paperless-ngx and b) be used with keyboard/mouse/monitor if needed. I want it to replace my current paperless-ngx instance that's hosted in my lab.

    Ideally, I'd want two SSDs in RAID 1, possibly with a third drive for the OS? I'll be backing up to my NAS and from there to the cloud, but I want to separate this machine from the rest of my infrastructure and still be able to have reliable access to the documents on it.

    In theory, I could just sync the files to a USB drive and tell her to grab it if anything should happen to me, but finding the right files while stressed without the metadata stored in paperless wouldn't be the nicest thing to make her do.

    tl;dr: What should I buy to build a homelab-in-a-box that can be attached to my homelab normally but also function separately as a PC.

    Another lost TV show question

    Edit: This is Being Erica. Thank you, @[email protected] and @[email protected]!

    So, I watched a TV show a while ago and have forgotten what it's called and can't find it. Anyone have any ideas on this one?

    • Woman is going through something rough and a person gives her a card and is like come talk to me
    • That person functions kind like a therapist but there's something mystical going on
    • There are doors that go to other places
    • Her therapist retires after a season or two
    • She starts helping others in the same way
    • There's a bartender that does the same thing at some point

    Maybe not much to go on, but I'm hoping someone recognizes it.

    Proton Calendar?

    Is there a calendar that I can use with Proton Calendar? It looks like the official one is for Google, Outlook, and 365.

    (Preferably for the Bills.)
