I'm FiXato, a stay-at-home father of a two-year-old I often refer to as #BeardGrabber.
While I was born in the Netherlands, I've been living in northern Norway for quite some time now.
In day-to-day life I take care of our son while the missus is at work, and when I have some spare time and headspace, I like to tinker on my various coding projects.
First time coding a line interrupt ( well at least this side of Y2K ) fun too see more colors than are allowed on the #MSX -- Now that I'm looking at it... could probably do with a smoother gradient in the subtitle as well. 🤔
Stream went well! Well ... apart from the moment my PC shut down mid-stream ... XD
We've got some new tools in our kit thanks to advice from chat. And we're now exploring a library full of dangerous magical librarians!
Thanks so much to everyone who came along. 💙
This is what happens when the #Twitch #chat goes wild over a particular song featuring #cows, a #moo sample, and a #VampireKiller cover by #BanjoGuyOllie: https://clips.twitch.tv/SingleArtsySandstormCeilingCat-MVo1ekWhNv524N3-
It's become kind of a daily ritual in the BGO chat xD
Thank Fuck For #Tea!
@gemlog Wrote a short explanation of my dashboard for my gemini capsule last night.
Any way to turn off auto-replay of media on #GlitchSoc?
I spent way too long wondering where a certain ambient sound was coming from, only to realise it came from a video that was already scrolled down my timeline...
Was it one of my Mastodon / Fediverse contacts who goes by the username Magikarpaccino on #PokémonGO?
I'm quite sure it was, but the person who I thought it was, turns out not to be it. ;)
(Feel free to PM me if you'd rather keep your in-game handle and your Fediverse identity separate.)
phone repair status so far: positive
It charged to 100% while the phone was turned off without issues.
It'll be good to no longer have to rock the cable back and forth and hold it tightly in place to get it to charge for a short while.
Won't let it charge unattended yet till I am certain the charging board connector actually stays in place though...
I have replaced it now, but I worry that the charging connector is not properly connected... It doesn't seem to have as tight fit with the replacement board as it had with the original one. So, I just have to hope it stays in place, and in the mean time perhaps order another from a different after market parts supplier.
Getting the back cover off was far too much of a struggle, and getting some of the parts removed also was more difficult than last time I had it open.
Ideally I'd also replace the battery, but now I'd rather wait a while to make sure my phone isn't going to short itself in the mean time.
Can't easily get the back cover off, so it'll have to wait till I am not affecting others with getting annoyed at that thing.
