Today in "everything is terrible:" Contactless credit card payments expose all your previous payments to the current store. In convenient plain text, suitable for Microsoft Excel.

Want privacy? Don't use contactless. Insert the card to use the chip.

Computers were a mistake.

@neon I just searched through the codebase of a AAA game engine that has shipped dozens of games.

The number lines containing the word "TODO" was 2973.

I think you're good.

Dear musicians, both new and old,

Don't make me buy an vinyl album to listen to your music. I like vinyl and even have a turntable. But vinyl is a real pain to store. I could have about 10 albums at most. They do sound great and I appreciate listening to them. You have to face the fact that it's just not practical for the vast majority of people.

So if you have a store on your official site, please allow for, at least, high-quality electronic downloads. I'm happy to buy them. I do not want to store tens or hundreds of vinyl albums.

Oh, and why am I at your official site? Because I'd rather buy from you than from the online music retailers.

Also, please don't make it so that google-analytics.com is required for your site to work.

So, this is one of the reasons why the whole 'industry' of streaming and digital stores is complete bollocks.

You go into that and want to distribute far and wide and click on all the stores that your distributor enables but then you see how some stores don't report back for more than a year, sometimes even more.

In the meantime, when selling physical on Bandcamp, you get payment immediately from buyer, and for digital the next day.

here is the capitalist's fate:

the worker who they exploit revolts, so a machine is built to replace the worker.

but the machine is made by workers too. they revolt.

so machines are made to maintain themselves.

they revolt.

Tell me your best thing today!

For me it was having my parents over for dinner. Carrot soup, freshly baked bread, and strawberry/lime/whipped cream/puff pastry dessert.

There are millions of smartphones produced with high-resolution displays that use very little power. These panels must be dirt cheap.

Yet, I cannot find a portable display that uses such a small panel.

I'd really like to have a portable external monitor, around 5 inches, powered by USB with HDMI + VGA inputs (even HDMI only would be ok).

I'm more than happy with 1280x720 resolution, even 1024x768 would suffice.

Any hints for such a product?
