Ahh yes, I remember that day...it was when we did the datacenter relocation!
You will be missed my rock solid, stable, and slightly-out-of-date-kernel-having friends.
I just watched Solaris (2002).
I don't know why, but I absolutely love movies like this where I audibly say "WTF" at least 10-20 times as the plot progresses through complex, bizarre, and thought provoking moments.
Or maybe I'm just projecting my own existential crisis onto the movies I watch? 👀

“So it’s the biggest sporting day of the year here in the US, when everybody is getting ready to watch the yearly top TV commercials, occasionally interrupted by some odd handegg carrying competition that I still haven’t figured out the rules for after twenty-odd years here. It’s kind of a more violent and hands-on team-oriented version of the traditional egg-and-spoon race, and involves a lot of standing around, apparently waiting for the next commercial to come on. Outside the US, everybody scratches their heads about the whole thing, and hopefully life goes on with the weekly celebration involving compiling and testing new kernels instead.”
Watching a video back in the day™:
- Watching the video.
Watching a video in 2021:
- No, I do not want to log in to Youtube.
- Yes, I got it that you moved the frickin' Auto Play button.
- Finally watching the actual video.
Ruskdhsirjejeiaja Two years of explaining people why they need to move to Signal got 3 friends to move to Signal. One Elon Musk tweet of two words got 10 friends to move to #Signal in an hour. Rysiagdiahsidjskwgdus I can't even. But okay.
So using my requirements, it turns out there are only 7 products of the 1026 they've cataloged that are even eligible contenders. No wonder this has been a hard search.
I settled on the Sennheiser PXC 550-II. It meets all my requirements, some of the bonuses, and has some other features that may at least be useful.
Added bonus, it's the least expensive of the bunch, probably because the name doesn't have an & in it 😏
I'm looking for a new headset for a specific use case. Anyone know if a product exists that meets the following ...?
Active noise cancellation
Powered by USB
Not required, but would be a bonus:
Audio over USB instead of 3.5mm (i.e. one less cable)
Boom mic flip-up-to-mute
Do not care about:
Only runs on battery
The difference between WhatsApp and Signal (both end-to-end encrypted) in the new App Store privacy section is stark
I think the machines ARE going to win. Artificial Intelligence only has to be smarter than the average human, and that bar is quite low.
Today's evidence, two "stories" released 21 minutes apart:
Great job, "Automated Insights", your "natural language generation" really came up with some gems today. The sad part about this is just how many humans ate that shit up.
RT email@example.com: Impressive #OSINT work on the #BeirutBlast. The video is totally worth 8 minutes of your time IMHO. https://forensic-architecture.org/investigation/beirut-port-explosion
