Pinned toot

Hey guys. When I discovered some time back, it set some thoughts in motion that it might be possible to escape the sometimes horrible video quality on Youtube and do something good with it.

It has taken me ages but I finally have something I am satisfied with, so I'm pleased to introduce algorithmic.tv, a peertube instance dedicated to computer generated , primarily the .

Oh, and to push the technology a bit, videos will be encoded with AV1 and Opus. This should be fine for most systems but no luck for your shiny Apple-device yet.

First one out is "Kewler & MFX - 1995", because I thought it fit the theme.

Hope you all like it and let me know what you think.

Pinned toot

Since I pushed the self-destruct button on my other domain and deleted every toot and information from it, I should probably do another . (or )

Hi, I'm Espen, born and still lives in the nothern part of Norway. I'm linux enthusiast, developer, administrator and a DIY kind of guy when it comes to internet services.

At the dayjob I'm involved in providing providing populated areas with fiberaccess and remote areas with a radio link, and making sure all areas have access to electricity.

When creating my tools, I usually turn to Python but have lately begun to feel that the spirit of Go is very much similar, so I should take a close look when I can find the time. But I'm very much a jack of all trades, goverend by whatever I find interesting at the time. As a result, many things never see the light of day and one project is replaced by another. If it can be done on a computer, chances are I'd like to tinker with it at some point.

I also have a healthy interest for retro technology and hardware, and can often be found trying to get older software to work, and recently got hold of an old C64 and Amiga 600 which require some TLC. I have been following the Demoscene for a long time and am enthusiastic about it, both the old stuff and the new stuff.

I can't draw or make music, so I try persuading the computer to do it for me. Love podcasts that do well-told stories about interesting things or tech, like Radiolab, Reply All or Darknet Diaries. Also a fan of humoristic podcasts like "No Such Thing As A Fish" and "My Dad Wrote A Porno".

When bored or need some private relaxation time, I play videogames.
Also passionate about privacy and encryption. I like the thought of having secure communication cahnnels with people and the theory behind things like web of trust, but find it challenging because most people just don't care.

I could probably list a lot more but this would do.

It is always a pleasure to meet new people, so don't be a stranger.

It's amazing how many hours you can spend to automate a 5 second task

Extracting a few values from an XML file in Bash had me bring out the regex-fu a bit more than usual

TIL ffmpeg allows you to adjust verbosity on the fly with + and - 🀯

Time to stop procrastinating and start making the next ART entry

If anyone knows where I can download the final version of this as seen on youtube I'd appreciate it.

Encoding for art-003 for algorithmic.tv has begun. Changed the production method a bit and this one is a full 1080p resolution so I'm kinda in the dark on how the final product will look. Hopefully it will be done at some point tomorrow.

All the sophisticated video compression in the world and I still end up with a master at 50 GB that needs to be archived

Some Steam keys:
Psychonauts: IFAJ7-EF89X-XYQWW
Tropico4: 3FX9W-VNY6W-J5YLE
Magicka: 3D0C8-ZB5MA-I32VB
Please RT as required.

Just attempted to push my capturing setup to it's designed maximum. While I haven't had a chance to process and review it yet, so far the results and logs looks promising.

@Truck Following you on here as it is easier than though peertube πŸ˜€

Our car insurance is due to be renewed in April. This is what my Apple News feed looks like right now.

Apple protects your privacy my ass.

If you are going to content warning for nudity "in potentia" you might be bothered to realize that everyone is naked beneath their clothes

TIL that The Prodigy sampled from Nirvana. I was into both bands in a huge way in my youth, but I never realised.
