@sconlan (It's pretty neat how, even running Rockbox, my Clip starts up from power off nearly instantly! Dedicated hardware devices are pretty great.)

@sconlan No problem :)

Yeah I have a Sansa Clip that I still use sometimes to this day, although I do tend to lazily just use my phone instead, which I'm carrying with me everywhere anyways.

@mpjgregoire Pshh, the late nights out don't cost anyone anything, it's the early nights demanded by workplaces that do :P

@sconlan If you can find a Sansa Clip anywhere, do that! Probably the best dedicated digital audio player ever created.

Flashing Rockbox on it is a pretty good idea too. In fact you might be easily able to find a used MP3 player that you can flash Rockbox onto.

@elomatreb Yeah, that's exactly it, for all its shortcomings if you need a database accessible with no more overhead than a single file sitting there on the disk, SQLite's basically the only game left in town.

(At my work for our main software product we moved to SQLite from an ancient terrible Microsoft thing with dozens of kludges around it, and life is basically sunshine and rainbows now, comparatively.)

@elomatreb Ooh, RETURNING does sounds like a nice little quality-of-life perk. My work experience is only ever MySQL for me on the infrastructure side of things (which I migrated recently over to MariaDB finally) with a lot of SQLite used by the developers who I sometimes help, and SQLite always makes me feel a bit hobbled—which I've long suspected must be what PostgreSQL users feel when using MySQL, hah.

@elomatreb My own current gripe in that regard is the proprietary license zipvfs is under, so Free distributions of SQLite don't have any practical native way to use modern compression.

Techbros vs. affirmitive action Show more

Just finished reading Scalzi's "Redshirts" and I think it kindof captures why I can't manage to care enough about The Orville positively *or* negatively.

(Also includes incidental details that imply the ersatz-Federation in it *isn't* post-scarcity, pshhhhh.)

Disappointed that is considering moving to both because (a) relying on software backed by VC money seems like a bad long-term bet, and (b) I frankly love so much I'm actually running my own instance now for myself! (And any other folks I know that'd want to use it, theoretically, but I'm betting this will be like my Matrix/Riot.im server where it's only ever just me, heh.)
