Pinned toot

Hey guys. When I discovered some time back, it set some thoughts in motion that it might be possible to escape the sometimes horrible video quality on Youtube and do something good with it.

It has taken me ages but I finally have something I am satisfied with, so I'm pleased to introduce algorithmic.tv, a peertube instance dedicated to computer generated , primarily the .

Oh, and to push the technology a bit, videos will be encoded with AV1 and Opus. This should be fine for most systems but no luck for your shiny Apple-device yet.

First one out is "Kewler & MFX - 1995", because I thought it fit the theme.

Channel is here:
algorithmic.tv/video-channels/

Hope you all like it and let me know what you think.

Since I pushed the self-destruct button on my other domain and deleted every toot and information from it, I should probably do another . (or )

Hi, I'm Espen, born and still lives in the nothern part of Norway. I'm linux enthusiast, developer, administrator and a DIY kind of guy when it comes to internet services.

At the dayjob I'm involved in providing providing populated areas with fiberaccess and remote areas with a radio link, and making sure all areas have access to electricity.

When creating my tools, I usually turn to Python but have lately begun to feel that the spirit of Go is very much similar, so I should take a close look when I can find the time. But I'm very much a jack of all trades, goverend by whatever I find interesting at the time. As a result, many things never see the light of day and one project is replaced by another. If it can be done on a computer, chances are I'd like to tinker with it at some point.

I also have a healthy interest for retro technology and hardware, and can often be found trying to get older software to work, and recently got hold of an old C64 and Amiga 600 which require some TLC. I have been following the Demoscene for a long time and am enthusiastic about it, both the old stuff and the new stuff.

I can't draw or make music, so I try persuading the computer to do it for me. Love podcasts that do well-told stories about interesting things or tech, like Radiolab, Reply All or Darknet Diaries. Also a fan of humoristic podcasts like "No Such Thing As A Fish" and "My Dad Wrote A Porno".

When bored or need some private relaxation time, I play videogames.
Also passionate about privacy and encryption. I like the thought of having secure communication cahnnels with people and the theory behind things like web of trust, but find it challenging because most people just don't care.

I could probably list a lot more but this would do.

It is always a pleasure to meet new people, so don't be a stranger.

I am tempted to skip this one entry of for "use of proprietary software" πŸ€”

Is there a way for mere mortals to get a hold of a trial of ? I've tried just registering for a trial but but so far they have failed to send me an email. So I'm wondering if I'm forced to explore the more gray areas of the internet for a download link

TFW you mix up the parameters and you crop a movie to the size of 1x2 pixels

@Truck Hey, would you mind approving my follow request again? My node has been sort of half working for a while and when I corrected it, I had to refollow everyone, which is weird because everything should be exactly the same.

Damnit, I need to get my hands on MATLAB and it seems like I have to jump through hoops to get it. πŸ˜’

Recovered from a ~24h downtime. Done some sping cleaning on the system and while I was moving some data around, my backup system was quietly filling the disk to the brim. So things slowed to a crawl while half of the system continued writing the backup and the other half got busy freeing up space. *sigh*

Found this in the stores from the local brewery. The Arctic Pride Beer special edition. Good job πŸ‘

I seem to have run into the 499 PeerTube upload error today, so video is going to be a bit delayed

Just spent 30 minutes writing a windows tool to detect screen resolution changes and log the current resolution to a file. Why does it feel like I just uncovered some dark secret? "Hey, you just changed resolution, wtf did you change to?"

Also, why am I unable to prevent software from changing it?

Finally took the time to upgrade to v3.1.3, and cherry-picked some fixes to bugs that annoyed me in the process. Seems like fed.im is running on full steam again.

I gave up on the whole separate web domain thing for Mastodon, it worked but there was a degree of mixup between the two and I failed to get why I wanted it in the first place, so I removed it. It kinda gummed up the gears completely in sidekiq, but I found refollowing got things rolling again. So if you just got a follow request from me, now you now why
