“Around the World” by Daft Punk. The strangest thing is though, I don’t use traditional playlists, but layered random smart play lists. I generate a list of 300 songs, by combining my 2, 3, 4 and 5 star playlists to give me a random selection of songs, but with my preferred ratio of 2:3:4:5 star rated music.

So the over representation of this song is just how statistics work and means nothing. If it wasn’t that song, it would be some other song that has been played more than the others.

Got me. Random for me!

The “left” government of my country deciding that overt inhumanity towards refugees was not only something they could overlook, but also something that they were going to make part of their formal policy

And then years later, I transitioned. If I hadn’t already have been pushed over the line, that would have done it…

Then you have Australia and New Zealand where you’re forced to wait and there’s no guarantee the government will cover the medical costs of transitioning.

To clarify, in Australia, you’re forced to wait for surgery, and the government won’t cover it. But HRT is more accessible, and covered under our public healthcare system, so once you’ve got your prescription, it’s cheap to access.

I don’t use jelly, because as an Australian, jelly means something very different to me. Jelly on a sandwich is… just no…

Absolutely! And some of us are weird enough to eat them with jam! But no one eats them with jelly

Building a brand new machine and leaving Windows for good

I’m sick of Windows, and especially what it’s become, and the way its trending looks like it will only get worse. I’ll be building a brand new PC this summer and want to choose a Linux Distro instead. In preparation, I’d like to try out a virtual machine with a Linux distribution. I am solidly familiar with Ubuntu, but I...

That’s what I did a couple of months ago. New PC, got rid of Windows and moved to Arch. The old PC is running Arch as well, and acts as our media PC.

How are you setting them to different values in the first place?

If you’re not on lemmy world, but the poster/community that you’re looking at is on lemmy.world, that could be your answer. Due to the way lemmy currently processes federated content, lemmy.world is big enough that many other instances aren’t able to process lemmy.world messages as fast as it produces them, meaning that the smaller instances fall ever further behind lemmy.world

Basically, jobs are processed in a serial fashion, and each job involves several steps of back and forth communication between the two instances to complete. Add in around the globe latency, and new jobs arrive faster than old jobs can be cleared out of the queue.

If I had to guess, it’s because it’s a click bait headline that offers nothing useful to people until they’ve committed to watching a video

ada,
@ada@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

“Try this…” where “this” is intentionally vague until you click on the link is standard clickbait tactics…

ada,
@ada@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

So, when I first saw this headline, my process went like this

“Stuttering? I’ve got stuttering when I’m under Wayland. Is this link about nvidia stuff, which I’m already across or some other thing?”

“Hmm, no more context in the headline. Oh, and it’s a video link, so I can’t even click on the link to get a quick summary to know if it’s relevant to me. I don’t want to watch the video if it’s not relevant to me”

And that was the end of it. I never bothered to click on it.

Learning a new language. I normally pick things up pretty quickly, but learning a new language has been a slow slow process, but worth every second :)

Are there any updates on the ongoing federation delays with lemmy.world?

I know there’s been a few posts about this before, but it’s been a month since the last one and it’s still ongoing. It doesn’t seem that any of the LW admins responded to Zag’s post on their help community, and the last response from lodion/Nath I’m aware of was from 4 months ago when there were outright federation...

The next milestone release of lemmy is scheduled to include parallel processing per instance for incoming activities, which should resolve the issue.

I don’t know what the timeframe on that is though

I just got an OM1-MkII, which has a “pro shooting mode” that basically dumps the last 2 seconds to the card when you press the button. Useful for sports and animals. But it makes culling a whole job!

So far, I’ve been using digiKam for that, and it is working, but I definitely don’t have that workflow optimised yet…

We rsync the jpgs (not the RAW files) to our self hosted photoprism instance. Not for the same reason you do, but it could easily be used the way you describe it!

Alternatively, if you don’t shoot in jpeg+raw, or if you want to reduce the size of the jpegs before you sync them, digiKam has a batching tool that would let you automate exporting smaller versions of all of your files as part of the import process.
