What's up with me? (you most probably didn't ask) #introduction
I'm in my fourth decade, located somewhere in the old world. This account is a splinter of my presence in the fediverse (although my only other account has a really low profile, with a handful of followers -- 16 as yet).
I have academic interest in paganism and witchcraft.
So, I have this cord (usb connector end of an Xbox 360 wireless game pad receiver) which was getting difficult, as in the receiver would only power on if the cable directly attached to the plastic usbA connector body was at a certain angle, which would suggest some damage inside the cord itself
And that ended today — not powering on at all in any position
I’m considering some #electronics surgery on the cord, just so I could possibly resolder the connector on a sane piece of cable but there’s this bulging thing 2 cm from the connector, which looks important but doesn’t leave much length to work with on my resold set adventure.
Anyone could explain what that round bit is, if it is important (I guess it is) and if I’m not taking on a too dangerous operation as a profane (ie would I risk making it more difficult to repair if I fail)
Asking for a friend
So it’s been a few months that YouTube shorts are out, and oh boy it’s hilariously bad, like
You don’t get to choose what’s coming next, so it’s exactly like watching tv, and
The content is absolutely dreadful, like half of it is either Jordan Peterson, Joe Rogan, Elon Musk, Joe Rogan interviewing Elon Musk, random scenes from some boring marvel movie captioned « badass », Minecraft footage from a 9 year-old or Red Dead redemption cut scenes
The other half is TikTok memes
And I swear, my normal algorithm-flavoured feed is nothing like that… wow
frpol; pas très important à ce stade mais ça m'emmerde de pas l'avoir vu remarqué ailleurs ou alors j'ai des øillères de ouf
ptet que je passe pour celui qui fait l'intéressant, mais le parti de Zemmour s'appelle Reconquète en écho à la Reconquista espagnole, pour bien enfoncer le caractère anti-islam de sa plateforme hein
Using the official #mastodon app so I don’t see other people’s toots and don’t get worked up by stuff
*doesn’t forget to set privacy to world this time, might forget next time*
Mastodon official app is unusable
Has someone figured out why the official app is missing half of the toots from every thread? Comparing with other clients, lots of missing toots in official that are present in every other client…
Redrafted: wow it even posts as followers only by default but it’s not clear it does !!!
