mesamunefire ,

Looks like comments dont work from a mastodon post. Oh well.

If anyone wants to take a look: https://github.com/XK9274/wesnoth/releases/tag/v2.0 Big shout out to XK and Vitty85 on discord for helping me and doing a majority of the work.

mesamunefire ,

It's a fun little console. Onion works really well.

mesamunefire ,

We used a ps4 controller as a mouse on our tv/media center. Its wired/Bluetooth and comes in as a mouse on our Linux box. No setup, just connect and it works.

mesamunefire ,

I've used nextcloud with a dedicated folder before. Steamdeck and miyoo mini works with it well. That or good old fashioned sd card, look for .sav then push all into another drive.

mesamunefire ,

Game vault looks cool!

mesamunefire ,

It's a very old image from reddit as well.

mesamunefire ,

I want a retro gaming one if anyone knows one.

What is the official website for the Miyoo Mini Plus

Ive been looking into getting a retro gaming handheld and the miyoo mini plus looks a really great and has a dedicated community with a nice linux OS (Onion OS) so I think it might be the best option but I can’t find the official website to order it from. There’s a ton of websites when googling and multiple have miyoo in the...

mesamunefire ,

I got mine off amazon because of the return policy. But you can get it on AliExpress as someone else stated. Its their official listing from what I understand.

mesamunefire ,

Archive.org is such a good service.

Thanks for all the hard work so the rest of us can enjoy.

mesamunefire ,

I tried running my own instance. Got it setup, got an account, then started to follow communities. I couldn't get it to work with lemmy world and done of the bigger instances. I gave up after a weekend. It's unfortunate, the invites were stuck in pending for about a week or so.

I'm still using this server, but would like my own as that would ever do slightly help with this servers bandwidth.

mesamunefire ,

I'll try it again when I have motivation. Personally I just get weekends to do this sort of things. And with work wanting overtime..yeah I'll prob get around to it in 2025.

mesamunefire ,

Any way to turn that off? Bluetooth is very insecure.

mesamunefire ,

When we do defcon, Bluetooth is one of the easiest protocols to take control of. It's funny. It's also easy to spoof, easy to mess with, and generally very insecure.

mesamunefire ,

Any good recommendations?

mesamunefire ,

Its more complex than I can talk about here in any kind of depth, but it comes down to it being a very old protocol. It has known security issues that are just not fixed as it would break backwards compatibility with a lot of devices. So the same issues that were chosen to not be fixed are still out there. You can, with very little effort, take control of just about any Bluetooth device(or partial). Or at least knock it out if commission.

mesamunefire ,

There's a ton of Honeypot projects. Just the first Google result: https://github.com/andrewmichaelsmith/bluepot

That's what I got out of the article when I read it. Would like to be proven false.

There is a book series called rats bats and vats, which is a humorous book that has the shareholders own everything and only clones/animals do all the real work. If you were not a shareholder, you were akin to a slave.

If we keep going, the ai and ourselves will be the non-shareholders in this situation.

mesamunefire ,

It's wacky for sure. It's by a pro-union author and you can see it first hand.

mesamunefire , (edited )

One of the biggest complaints with reddit was the artificial up/down score that they changed your ability to see. Before, you would see and watch the up/down votes happen in near real-time, so it was easy to see if something was artificially pushed up or down. I would like us to at least keep up/down votes as an option.

Also great idea letting the user decide what they want. Kudos to the team.

mesamunefire OP ,

All we can do is make something better, reddit will do their thing and we will do ours.

Is it me or does reddit feel, weird?

So I checked out reddit after a long time and was going through the top of r/videogames subreddit and I could clearly see a pattern in most of the posts there. Posts were mostly like "what game ______ for you?" or "what game _____ like this?" Now I could be wrong but it doesn't feel 'organic' (if that's correct way to put it)....

mesamunefire ,

NP! I didnt know about it until recently too. It was eye opening on why im seeing so many "safe" posts make it to the top and why so many google search results now include reddit posts recently.

mesamunefire ,

Nope, I have projects that used to pull top x on Google searches based on some seo work I did back in 2016-2017. It's significantly more. Granted the dataset is super old by now and you would have to trust a random on the internet (aka me) in order to believe, but it hasn't been always been reddit.

mesamunefire ,

What kind of dog is that? I have a similar looking dog:

I have no idea what he is. Except a good boy.

mesamunefire ,

My wife made it. Its very nice. She makes blankets for family and friends.

mesamunefire ,

I want to be part of matrix but don't know where to start. Any retro-gaming matrix?

mesamunefire , (edited )

Looks like there has been some significant changes from 2022. But it's arch based...and the expert install is the same. So I'm not sure what you mean. It's just Linux.

Either way, I'm glad valve put so much effort into Debain/Arch + Proton. Amazing what they can do + the community behind wine.

mesamunefire ,

There was a hackaday where someone did that....but it was terrible audio quality from what I remember. Cool idea though.

mesamunefire ,

Super Mario RPG. Fun game. Looking forward to tyd. I could not afford the full price but our local library has them all.

mesamunefire ,

I never stopped using irc (I know I'm old). There is matrix to irc connectors that are awesome. One of the benefits of open source is a lot of the protocols work well together.

mesamunefire ,

Yep it happened to Skype and slack.

mesamunefire ,

I wish osm+ was as good as maps. It's so close and I'll still use it for in town destinations.
