Pinned toot

Time for .

I'm a software engineer who went from backend to frontend development. I enjoy most, but have dabbled in too many to list. I speak 🇩🇪 🇬🇧 🇷🇺. Things fascinating me:

- japanese and soviet-era culture

As it turns out there's no easy way to update ZNC modules written in C++:

- Update ZNC, forget to recompile module -> ZNC fails to boot, module version mismatch, downtime while you recompile ZNC module and replace old one with it
- Recompile ZNC module and replace old one with it -> ZNC coredumps and needs to be restarted

The only way I see this to work out is by stopping ZNC, recompiling and replacing the old module, then starting it...

Today I had the pleasure of playing back holiday videos from relatives on my laptop and spotted a rather curious thing. The high-res versions used the expected .MP4 extension, the low-res ones a .LRV which might mean low-resolution video?

I kind of hate that working in IT makes you good at guessing this kind of stuff.

> Like other swans, the black swan is largely monogamous, pairing for life (about 6% divorce rate).[19] Recent studies have shown that around a third of all broods exhibit extra-pair paternity.[20] An estimated one-quarter of all pairings are homosexual, mostly between males.[21] They steal nests, or form temporary threesomes with females to obtain eggs, driving away the female after she lays the eggs.[22][23][24]

Alright, I think I figured it out. I'm on a January update now and the April one fails installing thanks to Magisk. No random reboots however. I could flash the stock boot image to allow the update to pass, but I suspect I'd then get the random reboots again and would need to look into how to reset to the January update. I didn't expect to be scared of updates on a Linux system (heck, I run Arch on my general purpose machines)...

OK, that's it for now. If you ever wanted a full Studio 4C movie (no, Animatrix doesn't count because they only did a bunch of the stories), this is the one. Beats me why Mutafukaz didn't get more love on IMDB, given the fun story and great attention to detail in animation, backgrounds and character design.

The femme fatale is just missing a hat to be completely lost.

Another barely visible name drop of the other studio involved, Ankama.

Sector 4-C? Where have I seen that... Oh right, in the opening credits.

More Matrix feels as the protagonist is told his secret story, seen through a long line of screens.

Cockroaches play a particularly important role in that movie. I love how the typesetting here looks like early horror movie posters.

The best car chase scene of that year involves a MIB limousine (it says so on the car number plate) and an ice cream truck. The duo doesn't manage turning off the children's tune, so it's playing along all the time at varying speeds.
