ReCaptcha has taught me many things.
Like the fact that mailboxes are apparently secretly parking meters and that bicycles and scooters are actually motorcycles.

A while ago I think I posted about me trying to make a website and having trouble. Anyway I tried again and I am feeling much better about how it turned out. I finally think I semi understand how html and css work.

So apparently the new nvidia drivers that are supposed to fix the security issue also make a lot of things not work. OBS and Minecraft are just not working anymore, so that is fun.

A Gentoo poem for all Gentoo-ers across the globe!

Gentoo Chan I must seduce

For Gentoo OS to introduce

Time is of the essence

One must need a little patience

System failure the kernel gave

But this was not yet digging a grave

Hi Fediverse! 

I’m tanmatsu, but you can also call me Mario.

I work on a few projects, some of which being:

and some other stuff that would take too long to list

I used to be on Mastodon but after some complications I have switched to Pleroma. This is my only social account.

Bandcamp, I love you.
Nowhere else have I seen it so easy to buy music at very high quality and DRM free.
I just purchased and downloaded the entire discography of MASTER BOOT RECORD, and wow. The quality is astounding.

24-bit FLAC, everything is properly tagged in the metadata (except for genre which was unset but tbh that's a nitpick given the quality of everything else), they even embedded the cover art into the files.

Mozilla Google budget screaming 

Something is just wrong here... Mozilla just extended its deal with Google (making it the numero uno search engine) for something like 400 million dollars PER YEAR. For the next three years.

That is 1.2 BILLION dollars from 2020 to 2023.

If you cannot run a freaking NON-PROFIT on 400 MILLION dollars PER YEAR that means:

a) You are paying your executives too much.
b) You don't know how to manage a non-profit.
c) All of the above.

So I have found that I have been watching YouTube a bit too much lately and have been being very unproductive. As a solution I am going to try limiting myself to only Invidious and NewPipe. Hopefully that will mean I will stop spamming reload on the page until it recommends me something interesting since it won't recommend me anything.

So I have given myself a challenge to try to use light mode as much as possible. It is interesting......
