@kura intel would probably work out of the box with `-cpu host` or `-cpu host-passthrough`. the default QEMU CPU model doesn't work well with AMD ryzen+ caches

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

@effyn the import screen in settings won't let you import toots anyways. only follows, mutes, blocks and domain blocks are supported

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

@regian you mean takeb1nzyto.space? could you link where you found it on discord's site?

@d not an expert, but random.org says they use and audit radios that pick up radiation/noise in the atmosphere

random.org is a better number generator than your computer, but I wouldn't recommend it for anything private (because they store all of the bytes they generate)

@huwusky most of the uwu.social regulars aren't owo users

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

@huwusky that account's not tagged bot, not much i can do about it lol
