Hey yo. You all should watch .

It's less than an hour long, on YouTube and it's a Studio Trigger thing.

Also the main character has a fucking flaming skull and the entire thing is animated like it's someones first attempt with Windows Movie Maker.

It's incredible.

Dumb shit my terminal emulator needs to stop me from doing: Running `cat` on binary files.

Just to follow-up -> I don't think that if you collect rare stuff you are bad per se.

In this case, the cabinets themselves should provide the value for a collector. Like, it doesn't matter how nice the case I'll build around a MAME box is (for example), it's not the original.

That should be the value.

Hoarding the copies of the game and making sure no ROM of it gets out there runs contrary to any and all preservation issues.

I see counterarguments exist that more or less say "if the ROM gets dumped, it loses value", but... the funny part of that is: I don't care.

Preservation of cultural expressions is much more important than making money from it.

For the record, if you are someone who collects and hoards things like this, I honestly hope that every single technician you hire makes copies of that stuff.

This stuff runs contrary to any remote idea of "preservation", _especially_ if it's rare material.

Yo, rofi is really cool!

Just uh wanted to share that.

Uuuugh, anyone got ideas what to do if a crawlbot proceeds to overload your gitlab instance by crawling it...

Btw, can I just say that e621s "hotwo:sites_and_sources" page is really good!

A case of very good collaboration on how to get high res images from the internet.

Also, pytest is really cool.

Makes testing some asyncio functions sooo much less painful lol.

Final reply to this chain (I SWEAR I DIDN'T INTENT FOR IT TO BE THIS LONG!)

Also, if your site is having overload issues, don't be afraid to make your API toss results in a queue (looking at you archive.is!)

What is not acceptable is simply timing out the connection because the site is overloaded.

To close this one off, I know documentation is hard (in fact, I hate documentation myself, go figure!)

That said, even if you just give me the list of every parameter that's valid at an API endpoint, that already saves me soooo much time. I can test the output with something like http-prompt in such a situation and get the rest from it myself, but at the very least provide this basic thing.
