  1. Episode 1 of the Runaways is slow but it didn't bore me. So far it has raised my hope that the next are good too.

    • Oh hey. A new Marvel TV series, Runaways. Let's see if it is better than the recent shows.

        • When I go to bed I usually use my tablet to watch a youtube video or two. My main problem is that I cannot block ads in the youtube app. I'm just trying Firefox with the uBlock Origin addon installed. It blocks the ads as well as the desktop variant. I traded the ads with a choppier and less smooth usage of the youtube website, some half-broken icons, long initial video loading (about 30 seconds), and an initial resolution of 144p. But no ads. At least I can change the video resolution back to 480p.

          • Now I want my statusbar back. I want to put all my addon icons there and have a dedicated place for displaying the URL and download progress bar.

            • Aw man. I upgraded my Firefox to 57 and somehow my custom filter rules for uBlock Origin are gone.

            • I'm thinking about upgrading my mobile contract and get a new smartphone. I'm hesitant to decide on which contract and the accompanying smartphone. I have my eyes on the Blackberry Keyone. It has a friggin' physical keyboard! And it's not a huge slab as other phones. But I'm very cautious in my decision.

              • I can't wait to get hold of "Xanathar's Guide to Everything". I preordered the book a bit later and my friends jokingly said that I'll get it probably earlier than they did. Amazon is very weird when it comes to sending out preordered stuff.

                • @adiwan I am just happy I am making headway getting through my book collection that has had terrible backlog. At some point I may actually get to my Runeacape novels and the fabled Fallout: Equestria that I been "almost" tryig to avoid.

                • @firestormdangerdash Xanathar's Guide to Everything is a D&D 5th Edition supplement book with tons of new class variants and neat stuff. I have other books that are on my to-read list for ages like the Discworld books. These are on hold because I have not much motivation to read a book book and the ones I have are all in German. If I really do want to start reading the series I want to get them in English.

              • My messaging queue for my LED matrix has the ability to automatically delete messages that have a lifetime value set. Also they get deleted when the currently "dying" message has ended its animation. It'd be awkward if it was cut-off mid-animation. I have two different animation types programmed (horizontal scroll, and statically displaying the long string in smaller segments). I want to implement an animation with a vertical scroll. After that I re-evaluate my code and make it neater and more generic.

                    • So my truck broke down. Got home and it was hissing and pouring steam out from under the hood. Took the garden hose, cooled it down, popped it open. It was night, so I took out my phone to use the flashlight and have a look at what's wrong. Dropped the phone, shattered the screen. "Screw it." I'm home, I have a bike, I take the train to work, whatever. So I took my bike to Target to buy a new phone today, and someone steals the bike seat while I'm in the store.

                      • I was in the gaming isle in an electronic store and I was surprised that the remake of Outcast is released. I was initially tempted but then I remembered that the original wasn't remarkable enough to play it again.

                        • Reading the mozilla blog posts and the addon comments is quite interesting. The desperation and growing hate due to incompatibility issues is through the roof. Add me to that crowd. I'll upgrade my Firefox when Noscript finally updates. There are some addon replacements so far that I already tested and I don't mind THAT switch.

I have a WiFi micro controller connected to a LED matrix and I wrote a REST interface to send messages to it (and modify the message queue and animation settings and such), and I use my Laptop's clock and send its time value via a looping bash script.
