Sooo... where can I find a WireGuard VPN provider to start testing?

Fedora 32 beta... how do you get firefox and videos working? I followed the instructions with rpmfusion etc with no win. Can watch 90% of videos on news sites

I'm going through the episodes of Somali to Mori no Kami-sama.
It's a cute parent-child story with stunning backgrounds and lightning ๐Ÿคฉ

But I found something which is quite rare in Japanese supermarkets:


Plus, these are too! ๐Ÿฅฐ

This afternoon I went out for groceries before 5pm, but people had already cleared pasta, bread and frozen foods.

Oh no, I will have to survive on fresh produce and healthy foods! ๐Ÿ˜จ

My favorite quote (at 8:40):

", relaxing social distancing right now isn't just trading one bad outcome for another...
It's trading one bad outcome, for *both* bad outcomes
It's shitting on your cake, and choking on it too."

omg, John Oliver is covering , including the Italian mayors sending the Carabinieri to college graduation parties... with flamethrowers! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Just watched the second movie of Made in Abyss, and... ๐Ÿ˜ฟ

Don't be fooled by the style, this is no kid's .

60Hz should give the best viewing compromise, with frames alternating between fast (lasting 2 frames at 60Hz, or 33ms) and slow (lasting 3 frames, 50ms).

At 100Hz, you'll end up with the most irregular stutter, with a cyclic pattern of 4-4-4-4-4-5-4-4-4-4-4-5...

My screen has a 100Hz mode, but I just realized that it might not be the best refresh rate to watch the majority of video content, which is encoded at 24fps.

30 / 24 = 1.25
60 / 24 = 2.5
100 / 24 = 4.1666666... = 4 + 1/6

Why don't screens come with modes which are even multiples of 24Hz?

Oh, ๅˆ only comes up in the hardest JLPT test! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Joฬ„yoฬ„ kanji, taught in junior high
JLPT level N1
"1874 of 2500 most used kanji in newspapers"

Wanikani introduces ๅˆ in level 2, so I must have learnt it 3 years ago. It's visually very simple, and it means "again" (ใพใŸ).

And yet, every time it pops up in my reviews, my mind blanks. ๐Ÿค”

Probably, it's a combination of being an abstract concept (those are harder to memorize than things or verbs) and not being actually used in writing: for some reason, people always spell out ใพใŸ even though ๅˆ is easier to write.

So here's the experimental #sourdough - used a 3:2 ratio of plain to wholemeal flour, plus the water from cooking potatoes yesterday. Was hoping for a bit more of a rise, but the crumb is excellent and it tastes great. #breadposting
