mastodon in theory: decentralized twitter

mastodon in practice: what if we pooled ten different early-2000s opinionated web forums together into a thunderdome

slowly realizing these past few weeks how i'm not as functioning as i once thought i were

Don't say high functioning when you mean able to produce without support while sacrificing their own mental health

the UM3567 however had a more native application... video gambling machines. So popular in numbers in fact, that these days it's easier to grab a new old stock UM3567 than it is to try to source a legitimate YM2413 still working.

Show thread

the UM3567 offers a pretty bang-on implementation of Yamaha's OPLL, to the point it can be used in place of the YM2413 almost directly, only requiring a pin conversion and the removal of the original circuit's LPF on the output (because of the DAC)

Show thread

UMC is also known for such things as:
- the 2A03 clone UA6527 which powered certain famiclones in the early 90s
- a very cheeky YM2413 clone, UM3567, which *improves* on the original Yamaha design by having a true DAC on the output stage rather than multiplexing the channels

WTF? University of Minnesota was submitting patches that causes security vulnerabilities to kernel on purpose to write a paper. My jaw dropped. Given they are now banned from kernel, they might target other projects. twitter.com/gregkh/status/1384

You do not bargain with the nazis in your spaces. You do not hold polls to see how they feel about being kicked out. You do not cater to the whims of white supremacists.

You kick them the fuck out. No ifs ands or buts.
