I like I like I like I like I like everything about you

That moment when you try to build a C++ project on Windows, give up a couple of hours in and use Mingw on WSL to still compile for Windows but in like 1 percent of the time. This, Microsoft, this is why nobody wants to develop on Windows.

Yeah I'm about to stop it. I don't think this is ever going to actually do anything.

Come on. I want to get this to at least generate the story! :P

Trying to run Ai Dungeon on my I5 5350 Macbook Air with 8 GB of RAM. This sounds like a good idea!

Well, I say photos, but it also applies to videos. It also tells you if faces are in shot, and you can even use the on-device image recognition to get a quick description of what the camera's looking at.

Sorry about the constant blips. I did not have headphones connected at the time and thought I had it turned down far enough to be inaudible. They're actually a neat accessibility feature in the iOS camera that tells you if you're leveled or holding the phone at an angle, guiding you to take better photos even if you can't see what you're doing.

Here's the takeoff of a 787 recorded using the stereo mics of an iPhone XR from one of my flights last year.

accessibility, ableism 

Inaccessibility isn't just a matter of discrimination, though discrimination underlies and defines these choices. Inaccessibility in itself disables people, more seriously and in more situations with more detriment than dictated by their medical conditions. People who can get around fine on their own on wheelchairs are disabled by the lack of ramps and elevators where they are affordable and feasible. People who'd be perfectly functional with dimmer lighting and less noise are made to suffer in spaces made artificially bright and noisy. People who can navigate websites with screen readers are excluded when websites are made opaque to screen readers. The inconveniences and exclusions are imposed by choice, not dictated by immutable physical reality.

I feel like I should just nuke the entire folder but I don't want to destroy my local attachments. Welp...

Even after removing remote media from Mastodon, I still have an attachments folder that's over 50gb in size. That...does not sound right.

I wonder what made me stop. Like what changed in those... wow. Has it been 3 years? Maybe 2 and a half?

I just came across my very first fedi account and somehow the mundane everyday posts are so much more fun to read back through than my current profile. Oops?
