how come lamp manufacturers all use stupidly low PWM frequencies for LED dimming when even the cheapest damn microcontrollers have hardware pwm at 100+ kHz?

2019 and linux still can’t bridge ethernet and wifi interfaces without kernel memory corruption

turns out intel’s wifi chips cannot be used in AP mode on 5 GHz. only 2.4 GHz works. so no 802.11ac with hostapd if you have a 72xx or 92xx

having lived here for a month, my feelings about the US can be summarized as “I gotta get out of here” because that thought has made itself comfortable in the back of my mind about two weeks after I got here.

not because I merely miss home but because the entire country seems to be on the brink of collapse. everything is just fucking miserable and things are getting worse by the minute. it’s a hostile world full of uncertainty, lies and injustice, where everybody just plays along and nobody can conceive of a better or even a different world than the one that atomizes and ruthlessly exploits them. it feels like your life is being taken away from you as a sacrifice to a blind god, leaving you as empty and powerless as everybody around you. there’s a sense of fakeness, like people and their interactions are reduced to keeping up appearances to cover up the fact that nothing makes sense anymore. I have never felt so oppressed and dehumanized in my life.

periodic reminder that most unices (excluding i think Mach, which has its own ipc thing) have sysv message queues and semaphores which are very simple, straightforward, and should cover 99% of the IPC you could ever want to do. you don't need the monstrosity that is d-bus!

ive been retweeting this thread lot lately because, frankly, having a male partner for the first time and actually being that emotionally close to a man has really made it hit close to home just how vile and cruel modern feminist doctrine really is. it's easier to look the other way when you've only ever loved other women and nonbinary people.

back when i was lonely and desperate enough to put myself through the emotional torture of the dating scene, one of my closest friends was going through the same thing, and we talked often about just how brutal it was - and the differences between how women treated him, and how men treated me. and i keep thinking, what if someone had treated my partner with such cruelty and hatred? i feel incredibly grateful that i got to him before anyone got the chance, because i at least know that for all my faults and brokenness, i won't dehumanize, degrade, use, and discard him the way feminists actively encourage.

but the realization that there are millions of innocent men out there being psychologically shredded in the exact way he was spared from makes me feel physically sick. and i don't know what else to do beyond scream into the void.

working on a tool to generate system/application color themes from wallpapers, as an improved version of the #SailfishOS ambience feature

used one of my photos for it, like the results

it works by generating a reduced color palette (using libimagequant) with some optional adjustments, then using jinja2 templates to write config files, SVGs, webshit stylesheets etc.

it also generates a GTK2/3 compatibility theme based on KDE’s Breeze widget theme — luckily the scripts and templates for that already exist: github.com/KDE/breeze-gtk
