@kirby Yup, I also remember waiting hours for 20 megs to download on dial up. And then just the incredible instability of our previous connection. This is just insane. And that in my no name place of the world.

This internet still feels surreal. I can download hundreds of gigabytes in just minutes. It's insane. I must be dreaming. Even after the month of having it. I just haven't woken up in all this time. Right?

@pitermach @masonasons were you able to install command line developer tools? They seem to be borked for me.

I want to take an image recognition AI and run all the pictures that have collected in my media_attachments folder on Mastodon through it. Hundreds of gigs of images. Am curious.

My god! Finally good internet! I can't believe it! Being stuck with 16 mbit for all my life... and suddenly being upgraded to 1 gigabit... still feels surreal

That moment when one of your cats figures out how to open your cupboards and then spends significant time while you're away rearranging everything

@Mayana I love MyNoise. Also you're welcome :) I was thinking of setting up an account only for random recordings like that.

@adamthomasmusic It does! It even has some extra features like, for example, running your plugins in a separate process. That way, if a plugin dies, it doesn't take the entire DAW with it. It also has bridging support built in, letting you run 32 bit plugins in the 64 bit DAW. And a lot of other small nifty features like a built in LFO that you can apply to any automatable parameter of any effect, for example.

That said, for some reason, this H2N has some light static in the background that disappears for a few seconds every once in a while, then comes back, while using the internal microphones. That... is very unfortunate.

There's some light thunder going on here and since I think it's rather relaxing I thought I'd share.

@adamthomasmusic I personally am a huge fan of Reaper. Lightweight, very fast, very scriptable and extensible, very affordable. Downside is it doesn't come with too many plugins out of the box, so you'll really want to provide your own. The ones it does come with aren't bad at all, but it's not a lot and really just effects, not instruments.

Aha! The good old trick of just... nuking the audio driver completely and rebooting a couple of times, like 3 or 4 times or so, works. Windows is magical! ha...haha...hahaha...hahahasldkjfhaslkdfjasljkdf

Work laptop had Bang & Oluffsen garbage software to do some crappy noise reduction (on the output! not the mic!) while on a voip call. Naturally I tried removing it because, well, who wants that? Now it's stuck doing the noise reduction on the output forever. Ever since I've been frantically trying to reinstall that god damned thing. Ugh! I don't get it! Whyyyyyyyyy!
