Mastodon is not something that you just dump something on. It's not a big truck. It's a series of toots.

This might be the best Thumbnail I have ever made.

New video on my ATSC tuner and my TV setup with mpv, curl, and Kodi.

It's so tiny. As soon as I opened the package and saw the tiny I instantly understood why everyone loves this thing.

The new Macbook Pro looks nice. I'll order mine in 5 years for $600.

Hey Alexa, are Apple Airtags bad for privacy?

Download speed test at my home (Spectrum): 48 Mbit/s

Download speed test at the park with me 5G phone (Tmo): 259 Mbit/s

Traditional ISPs can't compete because they refuse to innovate.

There's a little diner near my house that doesn't have the BEST food. It's got good food, but they're just not the best place in town. However, it's just so chill. It's locally owned and I really like going there. I hope they stay in business forever.

Got a video coming about my HDHomeRun ATSC tuner. I look so sleepy.

Taking another mental health day. I literally couldn't get up and go to work. I slept in, did laundry, and now I'm eating chicken.

So far for surround sound ffmpeg and mpv both treat 6 channels as

1. L front
2. R front
3. Center
4. LFE
5. L Surround
6. R Surround

It doesn't seem to matter the format.

I'd be okay if this is just become a universal 5.1 setting. It matches the DVD/ac3 spec.

167 Broadcast Channels. 105-ish bucks and the signal is great now. Still less than TWO month of Cable TV.


Antenna with Amplifier $18

Sheilded Coaxial Cable $25

Totally worth it.

🇺🇸 New milestone: my F-Droid compatible repo now serves 750 #Android #apps :awesome: 🥳 Number 750 is a special candidate, too: HideDroid promises to anonymize network traffic from analytics modules. I haven't tried it – but if there's a geek out there to validate that claim, please let us know!

I experienced VDSL internet for the first time when I was in Wyoming. I only had used ADSL and I was impressed that the speed was decent.

Living in California all of my life, after cable internet became a thing, almost all the ISPs switched. That's probably because how saturated the cable TV market was years before.

Wyoming's VDSL vs Spectrum's cable. Nearly identical speeds. Really.

Reminder: Spectrum is kinda crap.

Vaccine and Healthcare Workers 

Healthcare workers are getting fired for not getting the vaccine. Good.

If you don't like washing your hands, don't sign up to be a cook.

If you don't like being vaccinated, don't go into healthcare. It's part of damn job.

I really like having the HDhomerun on my network It's been a great investment.

I built a script to launch mpv to the channel of my choice.
