What bizarre misconceptions do people have about your field?
  • That what I do is easy and that I'm "just pushing buttons". Yeah, I'm pushing the right button at the right time because the whoke shebang has been program'd, cued, mixed over weeks of rehearsals so that, come show time, it's all by magic. Magic of pushing the right button at the right time while also reading the brochure, watch the stage, issue cues to other dept sometimes in 2 different languages.

    Easy peasy!

  • Different kind of post: I'm thinking of stopping wearing blue jeans
  • I find myself into these most days, does that make me Level 1.5 or 2.5?

    (Otherwise I'll wear the normal pants version from the same brand. Comfy, practical, and jeans are boring, not that practical. Sometimes not even comfy.)

  • Crocs (The shoe, not the animal) 🐊
  • Hang on to your suspenders: I wear crocs 24/7/365

    Summer, rain, snow, work, whatever. A pair lasts about 2 years now, in the past they where more sturdy. After a while you're going to, first, slip on wet surfaces because of the sole being completely bald, then you'll go through and get wet feet (or a rusty nail).

    It so lightweight, so flickable away, once you start you can't come back. I always get the "crocband clogs" in red, they don't have lateral holes which, yeah, is more practical irl when you daily them.

    It's Saturday, are you doing anything at night?
  • Working, but I love my job: stage manager for a jazz festival!

  • What's your plan if Trump wins in November?
  • France is 2 days away from an election which will see the Far Right grab the most seats ever in Parliament, the only question (hope really) is "will they get absolute majority or not".

    Holland fell not so long ago.

    Belgium kinda holds through "sacred union" that vows to never sign an alliance with it, but at cities level it's too late.

    And Hungary is deep into it with Orban since a while now. Hungary which turn it is to lead the European Parliament (a rotating position). First political act? Go shake hands with Putin.

    It's gonna get complicated over here.

  • How to achieve this audio setup in linux ?
  • Check out Pipewire, which is the modern standard of linux audio

    I do not have the same requirements than you, but in audio production I can route anything in any which way I need (useful for switching monitoring or sources), and I did once plug an eq to my movie player because some ripped movie was really sounding bad

    There are tons of VSTs available, too

    There'll be research to do, and a learning curve, but today is not the days of Jack anymore, it has become really easy if you go for a modern distro (arch, tumbleweed, fedora,...)

    Have fun running your sound your way!

  • Just follow Improbable Research and their famous ignobel prizes ceremony for more.

  • Touch Friendly Distro Recommendations
  • Any modern gnome works great... until you have to type a lot. Also, typing on a wall-mounted screen is usually uncomfortable, not angled right.

    So depending on your "obedience", debian 12, Fedora 40, OpenSuse Tumbleweed or plain old Arch will do it.

    Maybe there are.different style/type/propositions of on-screen keyboards out there.

    I was 25 when I bought my first motorcycle, a 1992 secondhand Enfield Bullet 350 Standard in gunmetal grey. Fast forward 30 years (and many other cool bikes) later, I just brought home today a black 2022 Royal Enfield Classic 350 Halcyon.

    Yes I went back to simple, I went back to cute. And I went back to slow, there's no denying it.

    There are 2 other motorcycles that I would, could go back to: the 1st gen Ducati Monster, and an Ural Sidecar.

    Better luck tomorrow I hope, sorry.

  • Options for non-smart TV in UK 2024?
  • It does not, I know it because I have started them multiple times.

    We use them as dumb players with an USB drive inserted, playing video on a loop all day long.

    I'll fetch you the ref tomorrow.

  • Options for non-smart TV in UK 2024?
  • We just got 3 LG tv's at work for an art exhibition. There's no network available here (it's a Napoleonic Fortress lol), and while they ask for it, dismissing all accounts/updates/online services is straightforward. You can delete all pre-installed apps (disney, netflix whatever) but LGtv and amazon. I can dig the model number tomorrow if you want.

    OTOH I haven't owned a tv since 2001.

    Proton Annual Survey: Gentle reminder to kindly ask for a Linux Client for Drive, now.

    The CEO of PROTON answers YOUR questions! Drive, Linux support, Photos, features, and a lot more!

    The link right here goes to 40:02 of Proton' boss on the TLE channel about Linux support, where a Drive Client is deemed so difficult to achieve that they don't even have a roadmap for it. Nor is the word "Linux" featured anywhere on proton's pages about Drive.

    coughdropboxcough

    If I believe what I see on Lemmy, 99% of users here are on Linux, and the 1% remaining probably are just waiting on a Drive Linux Client to make the switch, right? Right?

    Please take the survey and maybe mention politely our deep sorrow and profound distress.

    Feature Request: Browse entire instance

    Hi, and thanks for the hard work.

    Sometimes I discover an instance a bit specific, like the jlai.lu one who's centered around French speaking communities. Rather than going to the info page of the instance and then either check and click communities listed, or selecting "browse as guest", I would love to have a " browse instance" button like we can for a single community.

    It would improve discovery and engagement I think, allow for a wider reach across servers.

    What do you think, [email protected] ?

    Liseuse vivlio - retours d'expérience ?

    Bonsoir.

    Comme dit le titre ; je me suis assis sur ma Clara HD et, bon, j'en profite pour voir si je peux faire un peu plus local, un peu moins globalo-hégémonique.

    Par rapport à la kindle paperwhite, la Clara HD est lente, peu réactive. Sa gestion de la luminosité par glisser-le-long-du-bord marche particulièrement mal, presque jamais du premier coup. Mais elle comprend un dictionnaire intégré, est compatible avec Calibre et la définition d'écran n'est pas mauvaise (300pp). Le format 6po me convient parfaitement, il rentre dans une poche de pantalon (ce qui permet de s'assoir dessus, argh c'est la deuxième fois)

    Je lis surtout de la s-f, pas de BD/Comics etc et donc utilise Calibre pour gérer ma bibliothèque.

    D'avance merci si vous avez des retours ou recommandations ; pour l'instant seul le modèle de base, vivlio light, est dispo à 130€.

    M&M's on a bench... Mark

    Hey Enthusiasts.

    I'm being having my arm more or less twisted to force me to buy a macbook. Granted, with brands like lenovo shutting down on urp and arch Linux these days having a list of show-stopping issues longer than your phone's scrolling ability, uh, why not. Meh tho.

    Local corner shop still has 'pro in M1pro/16GB ram or M2"basic"/8GB ram for not unaffordable prices. Single Core benchmarks puts the M2 at maybe 10% better than M1pro, but Multicore and "Metal" (???) says M1pro is better than M2 basic, sometimes by a lot (geekbench).

    I don't understand benchmarking, especially with such variation in results.

    I need a machine able to play 12 tracks of 16bits .wav files + some effects (Ardour) and / or output video in 1080p on 2 outputs + some gimmickery (Isadora). Or you know, run qlab like everybody else, with fades and envelopes and stuff.

    Which one should I buy?

    Trying to get rid of alcohol is so fucking damn hard.

    I thought that the will to act, the steps taken to face the issue, would somehow support the combat against my addiction.

    It does not.

    Since I took that appointment at the addiction clinic, since I had my first meeting with a very sweet nurse who was 1000% more receptive and convincing than the former "mental health professionals" I've consulted with, I had hoped confronting my issues & deciding to address them would be a first step into helping myself. A first step into reducing, even if minimally, my daily intake. Or make me at ease with the concept of living without a bottle hidden in my rucksack.

    It does not.

    I'm more stressed out. I'm in constant panic attacks. I'm physically sick if I don't have access to the stuff. And I'm feeling like I drink twice as much. Which I'm probably doing.

    I know it's a process, a life-changing one. I know there'll be a grief period; she told me. She told me I'm the only one able to do it. No magic, no technology. Just me.

    Just me and that liquid shit.

    Using ProtonMail with a custom, previous imap-capable domain: what happens to the original inbox?

    Transitioning to PM (and generally speaking, to Proton For Everything) from Gmail, I was following the manual when I realised that PM wanted to replace my privately-owned, with mailbox service included, mail address.

    What I've been doing for 15 years was hide a gmail adress behind my own domain name (quality of apps, quantity of storage, general user friendliness...); people would still see me as [email protected], but I had the convenience of that google service while writing"as" me@me.

    It also offered me a layer of safety, since downtime does happen, and hopping to the poor roundcube webmail interface of my hosting company allowed me to keep business as usual. Believe it or not, google has failed more often than that regional service provider. lol.

    Now to the question: Am I right to understand PM will dutifully catch all emails to [email protected], the DNS settings will kill my old-school IMAP mailbox to push them towards [email protected], and I will have to commit to trust Proton 99.95% (their current SLA for customers like me)?

    Will I loose that last line of defense, Roundcube Webmail straight from my private provider?

    Thanks is advance. For obvious reasons, I'm not on twitter, reddit & all that.
