First evening back from vacation and already had to read so many bad takes. Maybe I should filter out boosts.

I have this coding setup at home where I run an x server on a Debian WSL VM via mobaxterm and connect to my Arch VM on my home server via virt-manager. (Yes, it sounds complicated and no, it's really not).

Because of the ssh thing I just did a `pacman -Syu` this morning and now I have Plasma 6.1 on Wayland where I believe it was Plasma 6.0 on X before that.

First thing I noticed is that my `xrandr --newmode; xrandr --addmode` custom resolution doesn't work anymore but, much worse, now the connection seems to have this tiny bit of VM lag you probably all know, whereas before that this was the best VM experience I've had in my life. No difference to working locally.

And this is just one more example of "this is why we criticize Wayland adoption." Now I have to spend time figuring this out, can only hope I can fix it and before everything was working perfectly. 
Yes, maybe it's Arch's fault for setting some weird defaults, maybe it's my own fault for running anything but a normal system on a normal laptop, but in the end it broke the principle of least surprise and the only obvious thing that has changed is Plasma 6.1 on Wayland.

Today we're waiting for an IKEA delivery that, according to their email, will be a 10x10x10 cm box weighing 14 kg.

So density-wise that has to contain berkelium, californium, protactinium, tantalum, uranium, gold, tungsten, plutonium, neptunium, rhenium, platinum, iridium, or osmium.

We're of course hoping for platinum, and really not for plutonium, because the critical mass is 11 kg...

One of these days where you keep misreading words everywhere every couple of minutes and it's still funny after the dozenth time. Especially when reading toots.

McDonald’s AI drive-through order testing fails hard

McDonald’s used to have its own R&D organization, McD Tech Labs. It sold this to IBM in 2021 and then bought back IBM’s services to run an AI drive-through ordering service — using machine learning voice recognition. [Press release; Restaurant Business]…

props to whatever nintendo person smoked a big weed & was like "what if you made a game where you use the CONSOLE to control the CONTROLLER"

Everyone's tired of the standard test values you make up by writing English words in hex, like 0xDEADBEEF, or 0xDEFACED, or 0xC0FFEE.

But if you're writing in C or C++, you can get a few slightly less familiar ones by making use of the U, L, UL, LL or ULL suffixes on integer literals. 0xBA5EBALL, 0xDAFF0D1L, 0xDECE17FUL.

Or maybe you think those are still boring? Then just stick with 0xDULL.

I take it back, Google Search does still work.

With the impending doom of ICQ in June and the new crappy version of Teams coming in July, I would like to post this meme one final time
