I can't move to the Fediverse properly until I reproduce my famous pinned post from the birdsite, so here it is:

P.S.A. To all vintage computer and video game collectors:

Go through your collections and GET THE DAMN BATTERIES OUT!

Now! Don't wait! Seriously, put down the phone, go to your collection and take out all the batteries. Right now! Even if they look "okay" they are NOT SAFE after this much time.

@crankdoll forgot to mention - they have mechanical drives! it's another $50 to get a genuine iFlash adapter to replace it with an SD card.

the stanley parable 

@monorail i love Douglas Douglas

@crankdoll a 4th gen iPod Classic with a bad battery, and a new battery, would run you maybe $50

dankpods has a video on how to replace the battery (a segmented video for all generations) and it's really simple to work with

@ben @flussence the only good thing about experts exchange was how I always read the url as expert sexchange

@kat "erstwhile" sounds like a word I'd only see once - when reading dialogue in FFXIV

found some good uplifting inspirational merch!

as usual, i found this by finding a knockoff on aliexpress lol

re: chitter and the environment 

@codl if it does or doesn't matter because the DC "uses 100% hydropower" is one of those annoying things to figure out because it entirely depends on how the grid operators handle power generation and how they adjust the mix as demand rises and falls

while I prefer places that do that whole "100% renewable energy" thing it's not really something you can put weight into, because all it means is "our power company promises to generate the same amounts of kWh as we use with renewable energy", which doesn't really matter much (hydropower and wind turbines are cheaper per kWh than non-renewable sources when up and running)

tl;dr; don't worry about it honestly

@flussence isn't it mostly that it's a pain to run, not necessarily that it needs more hardware

anyways elasticsearch sucks

@sharkNserg how would one unlock you

- in a fighting game
- in a Tony Hawk game

@Byte @unascribed it's probably a combination of both - having a thousand eyes on you is a great way to make everyone get off their asses
