minecraft mods are like heroin dude, holy shit
I started up a server to play with my friends on 1.14 and I didn't realize how badly I needed mods. unfortunately it looks like I have no way to get anything from my current world to an older version, so until either MCEdit updates or MCForge and other major mods update, I'm basically stuck...
Question for people with SysAdmin or SysAnalysis jobs Show more
could you run me through a typical work day in your field? I'm really interested in becoming as a system admin or analyzer, but wanna make sure I know what I'm getting myself into.

...so that way, if I want to work on a Linux thing while I'm in a game, I can do that without having to reboot my entire machine. however, I've heard that's a pretty tricky method to implement. minGW or cygWin don't seem like alternatives that would work for me. the best thing I could think of is to install Linux on my SSD and save just enough space for a Windows install, then get known working games set up with Proton, and any other games on Windows. that way I don't have to reboot as often.
I know that Proton is a thing now, but considering it's still relatively early into it's development process, scouring through forums and messing with a ton of settings just to play a game isn't something I have the time or energy for anymore. I've also tried running Linux entirely in a VM, but it just feels wrong to me. one solution I've thought of is to set up Linux as a partition on my hard drive and find some way to run that through a VM...
so, I've been talking about switching to Linux on my desktop machine for a while. the main thing that's holding me back is the fact that it's mainly a gaming machine. I've tried dual-booting with Windows and Linux in the past, with Windows being for gaming and Linux for everything else, but having to restart my computer whenever I want to play a quick game with someone drastically hampers my workflow in Linux. anyone here in a similar situation?
I'm thinking of starting a video mini series that educates parents (and a subset of adults that look after children) on the ins and outs of parenting their child in a world where social media is so prevalent.
What topics/realms of interest would you like to see covered if I were to do such a thing?
Is this something you'd be willing to support financially/donate to? I would be doing it with or without funding, though funding would allow me to make it a little more polished.
Linux appreciation Show more
I've started using my laptop much more extensively ever since I got Kubuntu up and running on it. I'm starting to get really comfortable with Linux and I'm excited to try and get it on my desktop this summer! I'll have to mess with Proton and a game or two (probably MHW) to see how viable something like that would be for me.
I think we are feature- and bug-complete for the first part of the #vtracker UI, which is the pattern editor. I'll get this ready for release and push master.
This makes vtracker a bit more usable, but it still needs an instrument editor and track editor before it has a complete user interface.
Uber, IPO, come-uppance Show more
In case anyone ever tells you "strikes don't work": Uber is now the worst performing IPO debut in U.S. history. They lost $617 million today because their stock declined almost 8% (due to the double whammy of the strike and tariff increases), and their IPO valuation was $76.5 billion, far lower than $90 billion or $120 billion some "analaysts" (read: fortune tellers) were speculating they'd value at.
Power to the workers.
