Just finished repairing my old #Pikachu and #Pichu #GameBoyColor!

The Start and Select buttons weren't working too well. I took it apart with a Y0 screwdriver, unscrewed the PCB with a PH1 driver, and cleaned the contacts off with a little 91% isopropyl and some Q-tips. Works like a charm now.

If you guys know of a way to buff out small scratches, this thing can look brand new again!

Raspberry Pi people,

What's the most reliable/safest power supply for a Raspberry Pi?

#RaspberryPi #AskTheFediverse

Humans are born to be artists, scientists, artisans, and philosophers. Children love nothing more than creative expression, learning to understand things, making things with their hands, and asking deep questions.

But society teaches us not to do these things, training us instead to be “productive”. We’re sculpted to fit into a world obsessed with jobs, money, and ownership, and we’re forced to give up the most important parts of ourselves in order to do so – our creativity, and our curiosity.

white supremacists are our biggest enemy. we must take responsibility against them. we must understand under which circumstances their hatred attracts people following it and counter it. No tolerance for them. No pardon for them. It's over.

We must understand through which of our own patterns we support them. We can not longer keep them.

We must be :antifa: always, everywhere.

Prediction time!

Blizzard announced they're making a cloud gaming platform. Only that platform will be allowed to run Blizzard games. Attempts to use any other cloud platform will get the player banned.

EA announced they're making a cloud gaming platform. Guess which games will be on it.

My prediction: This trend will create a push toward gating games behind exclusive cloud services the same way TV shows and movies are being slowly gated today (oh hi, Disney).

If you thought DRM was bad... stay tuned~

Facts:

1. Gophers are mammals.
2. Gophers burrow ALL the time.
3. The purpose of the gopher is to stay underground and serve awesome content.

theverge.com/circuitbreaker/20 Google "forgot" to tell customers about the unadvertised microphone in Nest Secure. In other news, the Greeks "forgot" to tell Troy about the unadvertised soldiers in that big wooden horse. Adtech IoT devices are not your friend.

and advice for assholes of the Web:

Serif is bad.
Fancy is stupid.
Downloadable is EVIL.
Low contrast is abominable.

Readable is good.
Generic is good.
Sans-serif is good.

Rigid is bad.
Resizable -flexible is good.

Huge headers SUCK.
Animation is ANNOYING.

Not everyone has perfect vision. Not everyone uses the same operating system or software. What we all want is accessible CONTENT.

!Important

Reminder to everyone still working three dead-end jobs dog-walking, Uber-driving, grocery-running, adjunct-educating, hoping to win the killer-app lottery living in a coffin apodment or parents' closet, United Airlines aircraft engineers living in vans in $4000 rent cities, 70-year-old retirees going back to work in Amazon sweatshops sardine-packed 5 families to a house, and the other 60% of America in poverty after adjusting for rent/health care costs, as the biosphere dies.

Fuck Capitalism

Youtube evokes, enforces, multiplies racism, anti-feminism and antisemitism by tunneling people who watch vlogs into an ever more ultra-right direction. decorrespondent.nl/9149/aanbev

A reminder that if you want to support a small business making the best #keyboards in existence, a group of Lexmark employees once bought the buckling-spring #keyboard manufacturing rights from IBM and the factory where they were made and formed this company, who will sell you a brand new one pckeyboard.com/

TIL there exists an "iPad Pro" with up to a terabyte of storage. Apparently Apple doesn't want people to have any reason to have a laptop unless they're a developer, thus completing their segregation the computing population into "users", whose entire computing experience is controlled by one company, and "developers" who are enslaved to that company, at least if they want to reach those users.

No thanks.
