(The other bizzare hint being that during one of the lockups, my real time clock reset to midnight. I managed to forget in the time it took Windows to boot, and Windows didn't notice time had gone backwards until told to sync either. At least I didn't have to fight ntpd's stupid "slew too big" logic. )
My best guess is that VRChat's combined CPU/GPU load is overheating neither but gently roasting some mobo component, because adding another small fixed fan temporarily to increase case pressurization is fixing it. But the chassis fans should already be ramping to 100% when the CPU hits 70, which it is.
(So the tuner actually did a good thing, it detected how far it could undervoltage the fans and have them still spin, for idle load.)
That it's just a Debian package (in main, no less) and a systemd service and is using "only" half a percent CPU and 50MB is a huge bonus over anything that starts with "first, configure your Kubernetes cluster...". I have one node. And it's a tiny SoC device.
I miss the Geocities era.
Geocities was janky af, but whoever you were it let you put together your own heartfelt, sincere, clumsy Web pages about whatever obscure crap you cared about, and that was GOOD. That's what the Internet was FOR.
Now it's all been subsumed into 'platforms' that want your 'engagement'. All curated, all polished, all tailored for optimized metrics. It's sucks. It's all so sterile.
I want the janky heartfelt shit back. :(
(yes, I did sit in one of the boxes for a moment )
(it was cardboardy)
It's a lovely sunny St. Patrick's Day, and I've spent it tidying up the box tech debt that's been building up in my apartment over the past year, culminating in finally getting a desk built and set up this week at the cost of my remaining floorspace. Which I have now recouped through more aggressive repacking.
and instead of doing something fun or watching youtube or playing games or something i’m just alternating between pacing up and down my hallway and lying in my bed
