US$20 is kinda painful when you have only US$250 for living every month (student loan), but it's still cheaper than psychiatrist appointments .-.

dream notebook: Pinebook Pro-like hardware w/ RK3588 inside Panasonic Let's Note case
*/me runs*

Shame there's absolutely no documentation for graphics (not counting GPL 2.0-only driver in mainline Linux)

I'd love to see running in native resolution and with accelerated 2D graphics on my netbook .-.

Fuck .

DRM_IOCTL_MODE_CREATE_DUMB failed: Out of memory

more like out of sanity :G

@realcaseyrollins I made this comment on hackernews earlier about the Apple release. It got down to -4 at one point.

Is there any manual for libDRM API? I'd like to set new mode with custom timings

```
[0] bluraf!3@motoko:~ $ man 3 drmModeGetCrtc
No manual entry for drmModeGetCrtc in section 3
```

Today I was trying to get 480i/480p image from Raspberry Pi using VGA666 adapter, but I couldn't get any stable image on my JVC monitor. Maybe VGA666 is outputting too weak/too strong synchronization signals?

Any tips?

I had to buy VGA-BNC cable and ready-to-use SCART-VGA adapter, because my DIY sync stripper wasn't working... or this CRT just needs separate VSync and HSync signals to work properly.

What are some small and well-written C++ open source projects one could use as study material to learn writing real-world C++ code?

so yeah, I'm trying to get my Amiga 500 working with some basic expansions, like a god-damn storage other than floppy disks

Corporate software path to nirvana, in 6 easy steps:

Step 1: build a prototype, get in debt with VC money.
Step 2: acquire technological lead, spend a fair amount in R&D and proper engineering, build a good product people actually use.
Step 3: hire a middle management layer.
Step 4: fire the tech top executive, replace it with a business executive.
Step 5: cut out operational cost by laying off your engineering and r&d workforce.
Step 6: Blame covid.

hey yall i just got a hot new idea for an app

its icon is a blue-cyan circle with white detail, and its only purpose is to make it slightly harder to find every other app on your home screen
