Opossums can play dead for up to four hours to avoid capture or death.

I just preordered a . It'll be my first ARM laptop. I'm really looking forward to it

I'm currently trying to figure out how to convert WAV to MIDI SDS. FFmpeg has a demuxer, but no muxer :( I'm hoping Audacity has something

@starbreaker hello! I saw your intro and am also a big metal head 😎 been listening to a lot of technical death metal and technical death core these days

Zig is an absolutely wonderful language. When looking for something to supplant all the work I do in C, I thought it was going to be Rust, but after exploring Zig this week I think I like it more than Rust

I'm really pleased with how this one turned out. I learned what the arpeggiator is with this track

Bought my first synth, and have been having so much fun with it. I basically haven't put it down at all :)

Schools and open source:

"Why, after all, proprietary software developers offer gratis copies of their nonfree programs to schools? Because they want to use the schools to implant dependence on their products, like tobacco companies distributing cigarettes to school children. They will not give gratis copies to these students once they've graduated... Once you're dependent, you're expected to pay, and future upgrades may be expensive."

@megabyteGhost checked out your album last night and it's great! Really loved Deadmans_Switch

If you're a software developer who, like me, thinks Microsoft & the rest of the "Frightful Five" have way too much power an influence... the best way to take them all down a few pegs is to release the software you write under a #Copyleft license like the GPL/AGPL. They *hate* that, because they can't co-opt it like they can all the "weak" MIT/Apache/BSD licensed open source. #FOSS is MSFT's kryptonite. Pass it on.
