I want to get into #vintagelens, and looking to start out with the Helios 44-2.
@imMalcolm it’s the best iteration of the real console as a portable idea, like the Vita and Switch before it, but it suffers from being Linux based and relying on a translation layer. I haven’t come across a game that hasn’t worked on it yet, but there’s still a lot of chance and setup involved.
@imMalcolm just bought Disco Elysium last night
@seraphucked made it easier to get emotional, like crying at movies and such. Didn’t fundamentally change my relationship with my emotions, but it did make those emotions a bit deeper and harder to mask.
@simon ActivityPub is much, much more interesting to me than Mastadon on its own.
Grey got super into this music video Good Times / Problemz by Jungle. Now he keeps trying to mimic the choreography as best a 19 month old can.
Never really got into trying to make music/media consumption into a social thing, product wise. Like, someone keeps trying to make variations of the live DJ product (I worked on one) and it falls flat on its face. I think people aren’t really that into live music discovery like that compare to being able to curate at least the type of music they’ll be getting, like picking a station, playlist, artist, etc.
@Urbane_doc4kids @BlackAzizAnansi biggest problem just due to how all of this works. Like the bigger an instance is, the more people are there, but also the harder to moderate and inevitably the more other instances start to block them.
It’s like to get the most of of an instance you and all your friends need to make one together and collectively decide how you want to moderate it, but if you had friends like that you could just do a group chat and skip the headaches.
@BlackAzizAnansi apparently the whole site reliability team resigned as did the entire Android team. So no one to fix the site next time things break. No new features either.
I don't get NJT Bus routes, so I want to make a dynamic system diagram so I can. Already got the NJT API creds, just need the time to do some exploration.
That said, not really crazy about some of the data updating being manual. There's an email that goes out when the GTFS data is changed, as opposed to like, an endpoint you could just periodically ping against.
