Had an awesome idea for an app - hum a song/idea, and have it automatically transcribed into MIDI notes, for quickly "writing down musical ideas". I even named it in my head, and thought it was clever - "Humasong". Went to search for the name, just in case...
Yep, it already exists, with the same name, and does exactly what I wanted it to do. https://devpost.com/software/humasong
Are all "ideas" already taken/explored/implemented, is it now just about marketing/execution/VC funding?
I'd love to understand what unsolved problems the overengineered broken mess that is systemd-resolved it's trying to solve...
Maybe this is the solution?
I got my Frame.work DIY laptop today with:
Intel® Core™ i7-1185G7
32GB (1 x 32GB) DDR4-3200
Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX210 No vPro®
2TB - WD_BLACK™ SN750 NVMe™
Plus these expansion cards
Assembled it in half an hour. Installed Manjaro Gnome 21.1.1 and everything works, including the fingerprint reader.
I'm using it now, and it's already my favorite laptop. #righttorepair
I have a laptop with Ryzen 5500U running Ubuntu 20.04 with the latest-ish Linux kernel (5.13.13). Settings reports "AMD Renoir" as the graphics settings.
Whenever the laptop wakes from suspend, I get just animated "static" on the screen (like $ cat /dev/urandom > /dev/fb0). See photo.
I can't find the right keywords to search for this, anybody with experience?
I guess I'll wait 3-4 more years (I've had this array for 5 years and it's half full) and switch to same-sized SSDs.
One of the drives is not like the others (they are balanced), but due to the world situation, do I have a choice? Can't get a 7200RPM 4TB drive anymore...

"The standard install process for most projects is to follow the documentation until the instructions inevitably fail and then to paste random commands from the internet in to console until it inexplicably works."
Truer words have never been said...
Just read a post asking Eugen to resign from developing Mastodon and I really have to ask: what are you folks smoking?
It’s his project. It’s open source. Fork it if you want to. But what kind of mind-blowing sense of entitlement drives you to think you can tell someone they should stop working on something they’ve built?
Apparently all it takes to run Netflix on a Raspberry Pi is installing Widevine and changing the user-agent string for Chromium.
Add to it a .desktop launcher with a nice icon starting Chromium in fullscreen and "app mode" (no URL bar) and it's perfect (for my family members).
