Got some code running on my WeatherSTAR 4000's video CPU, thanks to techknight's hardware documentation: https://hackaday.io/project/178144-reverse-engineering-the-weather-star-4000
Palette based, 256 colors, 18 bits per color. 768x480. Looks great on a good display, the photo really doesn't do it justice
Bill and Melinda Gates Are Divorcing
The couple’s separation is likely to send shock waves through the worlds of philanthropy, public health and business. ...
In the 1980s (1990s?), there was at least one TV show (I believe in the UK) where part of the programme was dedicated to transmitting #games via audio to viewers, to be recorded (to cassette, I suppose) locally and then could be played at home on their computers.
If you know the name of the show I'm talking about, or any TV show that experimented with data transmission, please let me know!
...with gnome-shell and systemd-oomd being the most active processes (and using up like 25% of the CPU time in idle), this setup doesn't really make sense.
Uh, well... So it seems neither Fedora 34 nor Manjaro support the Wifi hardware on the RasPi 400?
I guess sometime it's good to have old hardware around (and it probably has better reception than the horrible onboard Wifi in the 400).
Not that Fedora seems usable on that hardware (first boot takes like 5 minutes), but I was curious about the state of things outside of Raspbian...
@ajroach42 "Loyalty Day" was created to replace "International Workers' Day" or, "May Day," or "Labor Day" on May 1. It was essentially an anti-labor, anti-Communist move on the part of Eisenhower and is the reason why the U.S. is the only country that doesn't have its Labor Day on the same day as the rest of the world. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/us-declared-loyalty-day-erase-worker-protest-180963051/
The day has arrived. I can finally present you all my new project.
Inspired by NewPipe, Nitter, Invidious or Bibliogram, here comes Lingva, an alternative Front-end for Google Translate.
It's a completely Free and Open Source project, so you can host your own instance. The directions are on the project's README.
You can also make any kind of contribution. Feel free to Pull Request.
EvilDragon offers an €2000 bounty for fixing the TWL6040 audio driver on the Pyra, though I assume working on this will be hard without access to a device (and there's only a small handful of Pyras out there right now): https://pyra-handheld.com/boards/threads/audio-driver-with-bounty.99429/
A libre build of the Swiss contact tracing application is now available on F-Droid: LibreCHovid! https://f-droid.org/packages/ch.corona.tracing
If you live in Switzerland, it is a better option than CCTG: in case of an infection, you can directly enter the Covidcode you can receive with your positive test result to warn others without needing to call the German TAN hotline.
I think I just now noticed why I'm typing so much faster (and with almost no errors) on the small BlackBerry keyboard, compared to any touchscreen device: I'm hitting the keys with the fingernails of both thumbs, which is way more exact than pawing an indifferent glass pane... The latter really drives me crazy.
Not sure what I'm going to do in terms of mobile devices when the K2LE dies...
Agh... Except that the URL that needs to be entered into the address bar is vivaldi://flags instead of what's shown in the screenshot - otherwise it will just jump to the default search engine...
