Just picked up the new Royal Blood album. Was my first time in the local record shop. The hours are weird enough that it has always been closed when I tried to go in. Glad I made it. Pretty sweet spot

Was at the local goodwill today and came across this record. I had no idea what it was, to be honest I just bought it for the great sleeve - who wouldn’t want a record with some old timey composer in front of a synth system? Turns out the musician is a fucking legend. She was one of the developers of the Moog synth, composed music for Tron, A Clockwork Orange and The Shining, won three grammy awards not to mention undergoing transition in the 60s. So anyway, a round of applause for Wendy Carlos!

Looks like Ohio is suing Google. I have a hard time believing it will succeed, but best of luck to those fighting for some proper regulations on anti consumer tech giants. msn.com/en-us/news/technology/

Just about to tear into this engine. It cannot get above 45mph and has a mild misfire. I doubt 276k miles has done these injectors any favors, so starting there

Just picked up this tape deck. Nothing too fancy, but the price was right and it is in good condition. Needs some new belts, but other than that it should be good to go. A great addition to my dirt cheap hifi setup

Been getting a lot of spam from people on mastodon.online. Probably going to domain block that instance, as it has been an ongoing issue

Changed transmission fluid today. When I drained the old fluid, about 6 liters came out. The manual for this transmission states that 2.95 liters is the maximum capacity. No clue how the mechanic who did this last managed to screw up so bad. On the bright side, the car now has much lower rolling resistance and I don’t have to row between 1st and 2nd to get it into reverse

Looks like LBRY is getting sued by the SEC. They always came across as a kinda shady to me. Not surprised.

It is getting a bit toasty in here with this many cpus crunching numbers. Had to open a window. Can’t wait to get my other Xeon running

Well....I am 100% in favor of yesterday’s qc. I really hope this isn’t a joke
