    I still might have some pics on my externals disk of the around 500 hour mark but will take a while until I get back home. more than a month :-/ I'm sorry but I bookmarked your comment and might actually remember to send it/post it here or the new thread.

    It was a beautifully organic looking factory with hundreds of trains tousands if not millions of belts :-) every item was automated, used every kind of powersource, used every sort of defense, defense and repair itself was automated. most of the things where nicely decorated, but there was not really any order to it, similar to how vaclav is building his factories, lots of trains and belts all over the place.

    it appears on desktop earlier, only on pages that "support" it, so they can do it.

    I want to try something new and send some sacks of coffee over the atlantic and maybe start a sidehustle. I'm in the process of checking tarifs and stuff, but I have no idea where to even start looking for somebody who would do the actual transporting or what it might even cost.

    did anybody here do something like that?
    how did you do it?
    what did you send?
    why did you do it?
    what was your experience with it?
    would you do it again?

    it does not really, as you can only enter reader view when the site is fully loaded, i wonder why they did that... firefox just gets more and more userunfriendly :-/

    Also, Pipewire has much better bluetooth audio support from my understanding.

    all this talk about (failed) authoritarian communist regimes. You all forget why we never saw a "real" communist or properly socialist nation. The US of fucking A.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_involvement_in_regime_change_in_Latin_America

    Nearly every country in Latin America has a history of a horrible right wing or facist us-supported dictatorship which came to power with the help of the us, after socialist won elections, revolutions or coups.
    I'm not saying that these would or could have been "good" socialist states, but with a high probability they would have been better than what they got instead thanks to us-interventionism. Fuck the us administration.

    Remember Allende and all the possibilities we could have had.

    I just finnished my first jack setup and it was quite a ride. but it was more about understanding what it actually is and does then the process itself.
    It works really nice for me together with pulseaudio as I only want the "pro" audio programs talk to jack directly.
    but i will follow pipewire closely and try it as soon as i need to set up something like this again.
