Podcasts are great, but the ads... meh. I hooked up an esp32 and a little button click-y external board. I first tried making it a BlueTooth HID keyboard sending motion arrows. But screen lock cuts that off. So I made it send commands to skip forward back by 10, 60, and 600 seconds. Using a UDP protocol, which podbrowser.org and my own media player honor.


So when I hear an ad, I can just click to skip forward a minute!

@EternalHonor @adam Here's a backup site I like to use:


for usually smokingly fast downloads I also use:


It also feels really good when people dl from a torrent I'm seeding.

Having dumped a bit on the Pinephone over many months, I thought I should note that it's now my daily driver.

Downsides: can only go low power by shutting off CPU/Wifi/etc. Basically it only wakes up manually or for call or SMS.

Upside: many OS options. Mobian's my main one, but you can swap one in since it'll boot from an SD card.

Full Wayland+X11+PulseAudio. Firefox renders very well, but it's the desktop version, so you can open devtools in a pinch. Decent options for phone/email/etc.

I am not ashamed to admit I adore both Anne of Green Gables mini-series that first aired on PBS in the 80s. They remind me that there is much beauty and goodness in the world. Over the years I have appreciated Anne’s imagination and optimism more and more. I just watched them again and fear I have started to turn into Katherine Brooke, becoming too bitter and cynical in my view of the world and my community. But I have Anne to remind me that “tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it yet.”

A Plan to Get Divisive & Radical Theories Out of Our Schools

By Donald Trump

Make no mistake: The motive behind all of this left-wing lunacy is to discredit and eliminate the greatest obstacles to the fundamental transformation of America To succeed with their extreme agenda, radicals know they must abolish our attachment to the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and most of all, Americans’ very identity as a free, proud, and self-governing people

@Secftblgirl The part I find interesting is that the Military Intelligence has information that the POTUS could be a Manchurian candidate.

US representative explaining why he didn't get the vaccine ...

While the rest of the world watches, the US is busy with diversions -- educating our children to hate our country; allowing our gov’t to torpedo our economy by killing growth and launching a ruinous debt; disabling our energy supply while boosting that of our adversaries; exploding our taxes while making us support countless illegal migrants-that are enabling Communist China to fulfill its dream: enfeebling America to take control not only of "near-Earth" space but everything under it as well.

Would anyone else be interested in a mastodon feature where you can mute a percentage of someone’s posts?


NEW - Pink Floyd's Roger Waters says "f**k you" to Facebook's offer to use "Another Brick in the Wall" song for a marketing campaign, calls Zuckerberg "one of the most powerful idiots in the world"


Well hell. If we fight a war right now, it's not certain which of our weapons and defenses will actually work. I guess it'll just be a race to see who can tear down the other side faster.
