just caught up on my listening requests. seriously, people, you have to let me know, 'cause i'll never notice otherwise! (and sorry, everyone i just accepted requests from, for the delay)

Pinned rar

not that i get many follower requests anyway, but if you do put one in and i haven't noticed it for about 24 hours, @ me; ive heard they don't pop up as notifications (strange design decision, that) and i won't remember to check...

shit... next door has just fallen vacant; at some point before christmas i'll have a new neighbour.

this is primarily a problem because the walls between the two houses might as well not be there... and secondarily because i can't move myself, and i feel completely trapped here. and at the mercy of whoever decides to move in next door.

oh well. cue two months of fear, uncertainty and vibrating like a panicked cicada, i guess :-(

24kbps is 1.7% of the data rate of a CD... 1.7%, and it captures the essence, and most of the detail (subjectively speaking), of the music being encoded

just. wow. and it also means i can balance my entire music collection on a fingernail.

every time i encode a file using AAC-HEv2 or Opus at 24kbps, i'm just blown away by the miracle that is the human ear... i mean it's audibly degraded from the source material, but damn it, i grew up listening to music on cassette tapes and £13 personal stereos, and compared to them 24kbps AAC-HE is the very definition of high fidelity...

with everything the GDPR did to piss off websites, it couldn't have mandated the presence of a "delete my account" button too?

re LB: this is me most nights

comes with the non-24, i guess. the only way i've ever found to be sure i'll sleep when i go to bed is to only go to bed when i physically can't keep myself upright any more

which happens... quite abruptly most days

*soft mew* no, am not sleepy... i wanna... play more... :meowsleeping:

@vicorva Loved this story! It made my day better

Hope you don't mind me illustrating it, I was inspired :tialove:


In the night, she woke to something rumbling on her back. The creature again, now asleep and curled up in complete, purring contentment.

She didn't want to risk its wrath by disturbing it, and went back to sleep.

And so it continued. The creature grew less aggressive over time, but was no less fascinating to watch. It pounced and pranced and played and groomed. It yowled strangely in the middle of the night.

She was glad that her hoard was doubly well guarded.

The dragon lowered a rainbow-hued head to sniff the small, furry morsel. To her surprise, it hissed and puffed up, and swiped at her with surprising aggression.

Perhaps it was more dangerous than it looked. She withdrew, curling her tail around her pile of gold.

The small creature stared at her, yellow eyes wide and suspicious.

Later, she found it batting at a stray piece of gold. She tried to take it back, and was again met with a hiss and a swipe.
