people are like "why do you hate CEF/Electron?" "stop hating on CEF/Electron" "it makes app devs lives easier" but there is ZERO FUCKING REASON for a music player to use 2GB+ of my memory when music players of yore used /2MB/. It is not yours to use.

More thoughts on where computing should be:

General purpose software should be performant on a simple CPU with the following characteristics:

* Relatively short single-issue in-order pipeline with no branch prediction, no speculative execution, no multithreading
* Simple floating point unit without vector extensions
* Maximum 1.0 W power consumption

Architecturally, think something like a 80486, a Pentium with V pipe and branch prediction disabled, or an ARM9.

actually yknow the fuck what?

i do like country music. i just dont like what /modern/ country music has turned into! old country was twangy guitars and heartfelt odes to how great your dog is and how much u hate lawmen; less capitalism about trucks and beers and shootin guns and more anarchy about the jimmy outsmartin the baba yaga at pool and darts

bring back the good ol' days of blues country, because pop country didn't take no golden fiddles from the devil is all im sayin

the 's LCD is RGB with HV sync. could a simple resistor DAC be used to hook one up to my scan doubler?

"They are platforms forged in the fires of troll culture, founded and operated by techno-libertarians who didn’t understand why they had to care about any of this. They set out with no intention to moderate at all. Zuckerberg just wanted to rate hot girls, after all. But in 2018, the staggering effects of non-moderation are just starting to hit them, and they have little idea how to address or even intellectually engage with the idea. "
