Anyone know how best to clean out a USB-C connector? I've dropped my phone into a bowl of queso =/

Spent the last half-hour scraping it out as much as I could but I'm not satisfied enough with that to try to plug it in

The retro news nobody is talking about: the SC-55 sample ROMs were dumped, decompressed and descrambled. Someone also extracted and repacked the samples into a Soundfont(!)

It's a 300 MHz Celeron machine overclocked to 450 MHz (sort of like a faster Pentium II), with 256 MB of RAM and an ATi All-In-Wonder Pro VGA card (basically a 3D Rage Pro AGP card with a built-in TV tuner). It was my family's main PC from 1998 to ca. 2004, and then my main one for another 5-10 years after that

Pulled out my Windows 98 machine last night and messed with it some. Today I find myself wanting to use it for more, and I have a feeling I had something specific in mind that prompted me to hook it up in the first place, but nothing is coming to mind =/

After fiddling with things for a while, I just gave up and said "well, let's just lower the RAM speed if the computer gets crashy." It was so frustrating

Today I learned what a horrid state RAM testing programs are in for newer hardware. I was a bit shocked. The free/older tools don't work on DDR4/with lots of RAM (and I had a heck of a time trying to make bootable media for it in the first place too). Those that do work either cost money or have an intentionally bad and artificially hamstrung UI to annoy you into buying a "pro" version. It's just so gross

@sky Hey, I have a friend who just moved here from another Mastodon instance. She backed up all her posts before she moved, but she can't find a way to import them back into here. Is there some trick to it/is that a thing that she can even do?

After writing this, neither colour nor color look like words to me anymore. I keep wanting to read colour as "cuh-LORE" and color as "CO-lore"

Only weird thing is that the Telegram taskbar icon is now black for some reason lol (it used to have the normal blue circle behind it)

Rebooted and ran apt again, which fixed the chromium issue. I still have a few more things to look at possibly needing to fix, like python3 and gnuradio and some PPAs I might have to re-enable, but everything seems to be working so far. Yes!

So I found the log at `/var/log/dist-upgrade/apt-term.log`, and it looks like it only complained because of that chromium package I had trouble with earlier?? What a scary message for something so mundane. I really hope that's all it is.

Fixing to reboot, so I guess we'll seeโ€ฆ

I don't even know what failed because it wouldn't let me look at the log
