Honestly I don’t know what it is about this show, but I can’t really get the show out of my head either

Show thread

cannot get the Lycoris Recoil ED out of my head

Preordered a physical copy of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 so that I can easily rip it and emulate it on my Steam Deck

Haven’t set up an emulator yet, but this may be how I try to play most Switch games going forward :P

oculus/meta drama 

just getting real sick of seeing all these shitty memes that completely miss the point

oculus/meta drama 

iT’s ThE sAmE

If the Facebook->Meta account transition changes nothing then why was the Oculus->Meta account transition a problem? All three give Facebook more insight into your activity, but only one of them has *extra* problems inherent to it

Got my tracking info for my steam deck today, and FedEx estimates Wednesday (even though they haven’t picked it up yet)

DHL estimates Tuesday, but I estimate tomorrow, because it’s already in Brampton. Either way, good chance the manga will come first!

Show thread

(the point, the reason I ordered 9 volumes of manga in a language I can't read, is to try and help me learn that language; trying to read it will be slow and frustrating and I'll have an even harder time *understanding* it, but it might help me learn)

Show thread

just realized something... these are less than half what the English volumes cost from amazon.ca (¥480 vs $12-13)

even accounting for shipping, it's $30-40 cheaper for me to get them from Japan (assuming all the volumes are translated; volume 9 isn't yet)

it's too bad I can't actually read Japanese, or I'd probably buy more manga

Show thread

hmm wonder if my steam deck or my manga I can't read will get here first... steam deck status is "shipping soon" and amazon estimates the manga for any time next week so I imagine they'll get here pretty close to each other

I don't have nearly good enough of a grasp on Japanese for this to be a good idea, but I've done it anyway

all of that, and only two Kappas... so I bought 3 more, got myself 5 badge levels, and listed all my remaining cards on the community market for a nice CA$0.69 total

Show thread

apparently the summer sale is a decent time to buy your steam deck, if you care about summer sale trading cards

and further cementing my decision to move away from mailinabox, the very first thing it told me was nc: getaddrinfo for host "aspmx.l.google.com" port 25: Temporary failure in name resolution and then complaining that port 25 is blocked when it's just some stupid issue with dns resolution

I've had a lot of these random intermittent issues that don't make any sense (and plus, my fastmail account is about half the cost)

Show thread

the answer: both places! mailinabox delivered 86kb of "everything used to be fine but now it's not" to my mailbox on my old server *and* to my new mailbox

Show thread

Now I’m just wondering where the very angry email I’m expecting from mailinabox complaining that I ruined everything for it will end up

Show thread

Looks like everything transferred without a hitch, phew 😅

Show thread

luckily I do not need to send emails very regularly, nor do I expect to need to in the near future, so the current issue where fastmail recognizes my nameservers have changed but *doesn't* recognize my SPF records have changed shouldn't impact much

but, uh, perhaps I shouldn't have done this on a whim like this

I blame caffeine

Show thread

posted this local-only and mentioned the one person I know actually uses their account here, but just in case anyone's curious if I disappear for a bit: changing DNS providers (switching to fastmail instead of self-hosted, specifically), had to disable DNSSEC, DNS may get a bit wonky for unstable.systems for a bit

I hope it *doesn't* but it *could*
