Pinned toot

[ear rape warning] please watch my COOL intro

and since I couldn't get alsa to work, I have to attach my microphone to the VM to be able to call people from inside which sucks but it's whatever

doom eternal runs good, so all is well

looking glass is working but the quality is ass, not sure why. maybe it's a wayland thing who knows. for now, I'm just using the GPU directly by switching inputs on my monitors, works fine. steam streaming works well too

setting up alsa audio with QEMU was a fucking nightmare, so I opted for scream, which is a windows virtual sound driver that just sends the pcm data over the network. multicast didn't work, so I had to change it to be unicast with my host's IP but it works great with very low latency

you'd expect the scream shit to be a pain in the ass and slow as hell, but I guess there's hardly any latency anyways since it's virtio net so whatever

I set up a pci passthrough windows vm, had to go out and buy a 2070 super for it

bad experience at first, and the pci_acs_override patch didn't work for my nvme drive (???), but after enabling hugepages and changing the CPU model to be EPYC in QEMU (I have a Ryzen processor) it works great

sway was working pretty well for me but recently it's just been crashing, `dpms on` hasn't been working properly, desktops have been switching between monitors when using `dpms on`, and redshift-wayland has been randomly been turning off on a monitor

firefox still doesn't default to wayland either, extension menus sometimes don't appear, and there are random crashes (like when playing a video fullscreen on mastodon???)

pretty disappointing but I still believe in sway and wayland and I hope it gets better soon. I'll just put up with it

I'm glad that a bunch of people are using uwu.social regularly now

it was kinda dead for a while before d, dahmer and tomato showed up, but now we have even more people who post on a regular basis.

was running low on toilet paper but somehow managed to get a pack today

what a strange time we live in

added a "hide bots" option to local and federated timelines on uwu.social web. obviously, it only works if the account is marked as a bot account (check the profile for a bot label)

Mastodon was down for 30 minutes so we could move docker data to another partition... root was getting full.

uwu.social mastodon has been updated to v3.1.2

I posted an announcement, if you're using Mastodon web you should be able to see it above your home timeline. Cool stuff

suspended crypto-group-buy.com for spam

on the plus side uwu.social is now running patched mastodon v3.1.1

uwu.social was unavailable today for a bit because I deleted the docker-compose.yml file during upgrade...

the DB location reset back to the default, so uwu.social was online for about 5 minutes with an empty database. I hope this doesn't affect federation permanently

for the past few days I've been getting alerts once or twice a day about mastodon sidekiq having over 1000 enqueued jobs....

there's a spike of requests just as it happens too, so I'm assuming it's AP spam or some shit

not sure what I can do about it, but for now I've permanently scaled up sidekiq workers so hopefully that deals with it for now

uwu.social was down for a while because my dumb ass forgot to pay my hetzner bill, my bad

I wish hetzner would just automatically take money from paypal instead of requiring me to do it manually

my dog ate my tablet pen what the fuckj
