Framework 13 has everything working in Linux.

But in fact, not all power saving features of AMD 7040 are supported in Linux yet.

The good thing, patches have been sent and I expect support soon. Here’s a details:

XKCD is brilliant. You knew that, of course. Today's is brilliant and sobering.

For the record, #fluffychat, another Matrix client, was the first application supporting UnifiedPush, 3 years ago. Thanks again for the impetus you gave to the projet :)

I saw this online somewhere and I just had to recreate it. This is my coding happy place.

Most of the time when I make my small video blogs, I need two kind of operations
- concat two or more videos
- add some background melody (to hide some noise)

I used to use video editors for this and it wasn't fun. The same actions again and again.

Recently, I learned that it's an easy task for FFmpeg, and can be scripted.

There are two steps.
1. Make a list of paths of video file in a "source file" like this
file 'input1.mp4'
file 'input2.mp4'
then concat it with
`ffmpeg -f concat -safe 0 -i mylist.txt -c copy output.mp4`

2. Add background music (and repeat it if necessary ). 0.05 = 5% - is its volume.

`ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -stream_loop -1 -i background.wav -filter_complex "[1:a]volume=0.05[a1]; [0:a][a1]amix=inputs=2:duration=first:dropout_transition=2" output.mp4`

The bill for my knee injection of hyaluronic acid. Note that the injection itself made the clinic a perfectly reasonable $314. The drug was $4900.
I checked the cost of making the stuff. $1100 a kg. Thus, the 48mg injection was billed at over 20,000 times cost.

We are all insane to be living with this madness. Insane.

#FirefoxRelay Premium is finally available in the #Czech Republic, so I subscribed to it. It's cheap (23 CZK~$1/month).

It's not just a handy way to anonymize your email, it's also a way to financially support the only independent web browser left.

sup. is an open source encrypted fediverse instant messenger, similar to whatsapp, made by pixelfed.

The beta will be launching later this month, and btw most fediverse accounts will work, not just Pixelfed 😉

The savanna is truly enchanting. My family and I enjoy journeying here annually.

During our previous visit, we were thrilled to encounter a tower of giraffes, and on another day, we marveled at a dazzle of zebras.

Additionally, we had the opportunity to witness a bloat of hippopotamuses basking in the sun, a parade of elephants roaming majestically, and a cackle of hyenas laughing in the distance.
At night, we listened to the symphony of a chorus of crickets and the hooting of a parliament of owls.

The savanna never ceases to amaze us.
