Slowly we're moving from crisp temperatures and colored leaves to icy and frost. It's definitely a slowing down of many things, but also a pickup as the holidays come into full swing, and we start getting more holiday music and scents of cinnamon and peppermint into the air.

So let's go ahead and enjoy the changes in the air and a holiday season with a warm drink, whether coffee, tea, or apple cider or anything else and talk about anything and everything on our minds

Yep! Got the day off finally.

OOO very nice. Always good to have some time off


Do you really though

Coffee refresh


It's really wild how hard it is to get a Raspberry Pi nowadays - not to mention a specific one.

I should get serious about looking for that CM4102008. Except not so serious as to give money to scalpers. They can go do one.


File: 1669227808186.jpg (9.21 KB, 236x236, 1:1, Coffee and paper.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Yeah, I had a bit of a fight getting one. Ended up buying a full bundle thing to get one myself. Sadly the case and usb plug were complete crap



In hindsight I can't believe the deal I got on RPi 1Bs 2 years back. They're kinda old but they're still perfectly capable for when you just need that tiny-but-real computer to do something, and I got 4 of them. Used, sure, but who cares - they came with wifi cards, power supplies and SD cards and I paid like $50 for the lot.

I feel like the way to go to get one is to just check this site daily until you do: https://rpilocator.com/ . Which I will, until I get that CM4. They have CM4002000 on there right now. Which is too bad as while the 1 I can live without, the 008 is non-negotiable, heh.

Haha, well I guess all I can do is wish you all the luck in the world

I don't even really NEED it, which is why I only ever looked at it with so little effort. I want to use it to build a Serious Proper Router with the DFRobot board, but my current main router is still working pretty fine. But the future proofing, ah, the future proofing...!

Also maybe it'll work a bit better anyway, and I'm always down for "a bit better".

Help! Game Grumps played a fever dream!

Well what do we really need in life other than food and shelter?

But you can have some pretty big wants


So I see.  I am in the middle of it myself.

I just finished, my brain still hurts

True enough. At least MY Collector's Plastic Crap actually will do something, heh.


I do wonder what the hell is going through peoples' heads when they make stuff like this.

Cause like, clearly there's some level of effort here, it's not something slapped together in an afternoon.

OOO it definitely looks spiffy

I know right? Though antenna is optional. I think you have to get a separate module to have it, as I just don't see where it could go otherwise. It seems like the port is somewhere opposite the SD card reader of the router board.

Could also be completely superfluous, which it does still look kinda cool


Huh. Scarlet has been running way better today. Not that I was getting the most major bugs to begin with.

Did an update happen?


Not that I can find evidence of. But then I am not good at knowing these things


File: 1669239623141.jpg (141.49 KB, 945x945, 1:1, 130480034676.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Well usually there's someone posting about it or something. I might try doing a little looking



I dunno, s'weird.

And I WAS fully resetting my Switch the other days.

Well, might as well enjoy it while you can then. Don't look a gift pokemon in the mouth


I haven't been having anywhere near the issues people are otherwise reporting anyway, been having a great time.


File: 1669245304749.png (19.54 KB, 230x197, 230:197, Long horn big coffee.png) ImgOps Google

Yeah, honestly I do wonder about them, but there are more than enough reports that make me wonder about something being really wrong


I don't doubt that people have been experiencing them. What jank I have seen does speak to it being a thing. but I have NOT run into any massive warping, things flying all over the place...

I've seen slowdowns, some popins, etc. But none of that truly insane stuff. Grnated I have also ONLY played docked.


File: 1669245863927.png (195.62 KB, 551x363, 551:363, 130480143930.png) ImgOps Google

Yeah, I think undocked is definitely a huge pain to all of it.

Also I'm sure a lot of these are from people playing for very long periods without resetting the system


I have been playing fooor... I guess about four hours at most in one go. Docked.

But still, today did feel smoother overall somehow.

It could also be delusional too, getting so used to the complete messy game that you end up thinking it's doing better than it really is


No, I am very sure that's not what's happening,



Damn, what a day. It started off by bad crap piling up, to set the tone of it. Did you know that Samsung recently released an update for the firmware on their Galaxy Watch 4s? And that I happen to have one of those? And that this update bricks them? I didn't know the last part when I installed it in the morning. I'll probably get it fixed under warranty so it's not really a huge deal, but it's still annoying - and just one of the things piling up to apparently set the tone for the day.

A day which I ended by winning a Nintendo Switch. So yeah that was a ride.

Sorry about your phone, but congrats on the switch!

You should pick up scarlet or violet and join us in pokemon fun!

It's a watch and I use it mostly for looking at time and doing contactless payments. My phone is fine and it can do both those things too, just less conveniently, so w/e. I can deal until it's fixed.

But anyway, thanks! And I might! I had no idea my entering into a random retro gaming tournament at a coding conference day would end up with me getting the overall first place (pic - a staff guy holding my score card for becoming an official submission) and ending up with a Switch, so I have no idea what's even available on it. The last console I had was a bazaar grade Pegasus, and that was... in 2000 I think? I am a bit out of the loop

Coffee refresh for shopping day

Nothing much, I bought a few games. Missed out on a headset though. Probably will get a few books later and see if a Vinyl record is in a store tomorrow since I'm still at work

No real Black Friday shopping for me aside from getting a last few christmas gifts.

It's not the holidays unless you have your aunt and uncle have a very awkward conversation that you don't want to take any part in whatsoever, but you are too polite to dismiss yourself
