Reaper is hands-down the best audio DAW on linux.
Just found out about Konserthuset Play! Enjoy music from Konserthuset Stockholm for free – world-class performances with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, concerts for children and much more. Very impressive!
For example, this fantastic concert by Gustav Lundgren Trio with guests. The Gustav Lundgren Trio are considered Sweden’s leading interpreters of Django Reinhardt’s equally ground-breaking and irresistible music. Here, we meet the brilliantly swinging trio in a concert from Grünewald Hall.
Just watched Everything Everywhere All at Once. Very over hyped I have to say, and incredibly nihilistic (even when it pretends not to be). Excessively farcical, a fetish for choreographed fighting, random universes slapped on top of each other, and an oily message about "family and love".
I'd give it 2/10 at best.
There's a lot to be said about Nix's reproducibility and immutable package management, but it's also incredibly satisfying to see log messages race on the screen all nice and successful when doing a fresh install or a config switch.
Journalists are the new lawyers.
It seems like it should be obvious at this point, but the more politically-inclined people try to suppress information, the harder it’ll come back.
One interesting thing here is that DVD sales have been steadily increasing since 2018
I think social bookmarking would work really well with ActivityPub. I recently read a blog post by @email@example.com about del.icio.us being the web’s discovery-engine of the early 2000s and I think I agree. I also miss discovering interesting posts or obscure websites from people I don't know or "follow". Now that most tech people are starting to appreciate the value of the fediverse, it might be a good time for a community to grow around the idea of social bookmarking again but with ActivityPub and federated servers this time, running a simple del.icio.us-like piece of software (self-hosted or saas).
Firefox's onboard experience is becoming pretty annoying. They almost go out of their way to prevent you from browsing immediately: choose a color, now choose a shade, now choose an accent, now choose a tint, now welcome! now click to browse. Very annoying.
Pro tip for anybody on a custom Mastodon server who can't figure out how to follow somebody on mastodon.social:
Copy the URL of that person's profile and paste it into your own Mastodon instance's search bar. That'll give you a way to follow them within your instance.
The reason for this is: mastodon.social is using a newer/feature version of the Mastodon code.
Thanks to the excellent support at masto.host for telling me about this. Never would have figured it out on my own.
