    I've had synapse running at my house for the past 15-ish months, but with NGINX and not Apache. What kind of errors are you having? You can also try shooting me a message at @me:thomcat.rocks.

    I knew that it was three fifths, my jokes logic was the important part was after the first 2/5s. Bad joke logic in a bad joke that didn't land.

    Not 32", but I have an Acer ET430K at home and an LG 43UD79B at work and would absolutely never use scailing on them. On a 27" 4K, maybe. 32", you're probably fine.

    To be quite honest, I'm getting really sick of the Palmer Report and their super predictable last 2 lines in every response to Trump. " •Trump is going to prison. • It's only <current_time>."

    Like most people, first time I heard this song was watching the intro to Season 2 of The Leftovers. I feel like the show really sunk its hooks into me at that point. The juxtaposition (tonally) of how upbeat "Let The Mystery Be" is with how fuckin' heavy the show is drives me crazy, in a good way.

    Good choice!

    People really really really need to start considering the security ramifications of using a 7 year old phone as your daily driver. There are 2,563 CVE's for Android based on 30 seconds of searching.

    Daniel McCay, the founder/creator/maintainer of GrapheneOS, has repeatedly recommended that most people buy iPhones. I'm saying this as a pretty huge Android fanboy and someone who's been following Daniel since the CopperheadOS implosion.

    If anyone has figured out a way to run Android Auto without GApps/microG, then I would flash LineageOS yesterday. Unfortunately, AA is a Google app and not an AOSP one.

    What does a 1000$ smartphone do that a 200$ doesn't? The answer in most case is take better photographs.

    Don't get me wrong, smart phones are wayyyyyyyy overpriced right now, but definitely don't discount the importance of software updates and especially security patches. With how fast vulnerabilities are found nowadays, having a phone that is even months behind could have serious consequences.

    I've got about 4 hours in on my Oculus Rift CV1. This is the best VR game I've ever played and it's not even a competition at this point.

    • The first time I used the gravity gloves (or 'Russels' as they are called) to pull an object towards me and grab it in mid-air is something I won't forget for a long time. I'm still giggling just thinking about it.

    • The game is stupidly beautiful. I would say my system is mid-to-upper-mid spec wise (i5-6600k, 1070 OC, 16GB) and the detail is mind blowing. When you pick up a dead zombie, the gore is grotesque and visceral; you can see individual organs shift! Alyx's fingernails have dirt underneath them. There's dust on derelect hospital beds.

    • The voice acting quality, especially when comparing it to other VR titles, really puts it in another league.

    If you don't have VR but can find a way to play it, this is a must-play. If you have a VR headset, this is the definitive VR title and a 100% must-own.
