Forza Horizon 5 (Screenshots, of course) 

If you know me well, you know I like my Forza Horizon series.
If you know me even more well than that, you know I have a lust for the Rimac Nevera.
I also have an appreciation for older cars, like the Datsun that is in half the pictures here.

This is why I need a video card upgrade.

Looking for: WordPress plugin (Boosts OK) 

Searching WordPress's plugins site is unproductive.

The thing we want is a polling system for WordPress that implements Ranked Choice Voting, like what is used at rankit.vote;

I'm trying to figure out a way to effectively limit voting to people who are logged in and authorized through their SubscribeStar or Patreon accounts, so that users of a specific tier or higher can cast votes, and those not logged in simply cannot vote, period.

Because polls on rankit aren't able to be successfully hidden behind authentication, it makes just embedding the poll not so plausible in my head: all it takes is a right-click, 'show iframe in new window', and now the URL can be handed out to allow someone to pester their friends to vote their way.

Also, those of us who understand browser containers as it stands can go in and skew the now unprotected poll in an unfair direction to get what we want.

I don't do it, but I don't want anyone else to have that bright idea.

Anything like this even remotely in existence?

Thanks. :boost_ok:​ βœ…

Okay.

I need to find enough wherewithal to decide what the hell I'm going to do about hosting, come December.

Don't get me wrong, Namecheap are not bad folks.
But it's not what I need: I need my registrar to not also be my web host.

I also need my host to not be actively hostile toward adult furry art.

And, because this is really just a little hobby that doesn't get looked at much, I'd like it to not be expensive. I left Surpass a while back because my rate for shared hosting was going to shoot up astronomically. I was on some low end host for a little while, like a year and change, then that low end host fucked me and ran.

... but right now, my brain is having so much trouble holding a focus beam in place. :/

Unpopular furry opinion. Includes profanity. 

Okay. Commiss.io is fucking unusable garbage.

Let's start with the Optical Blast! nearly solid white background ( is barely a few nuthairs less intense than ) and no in-built option to detune that.
Next, let's make it impossible to exclude things you're not interested in, because of a lack of tagging or filters.
As prime example, you literally cannot do a search for "-adopt" or "-base", where most search engines recognize that the user has requested to exclude this word from results. Since you can't tag filter, and search fails you, it makes navigating what is there a shitshow.

When I had used the search prior and found something I was interested in, it ended up being a damned unavailable listing. This was not a one-off thing. I found several listings of this nature. A good search would deprioritize unavailable listings.

Shit like this makes me miss FurBid and FurBuy more and more.

Okay. My brain says that there once was a site that gave a list of all the various interfaces to the fediverse, like WriteFreely, Pleroma, Misskey, and other apps/scripts/whatever you hip folks call them these days.

I just cannot think of the name of this, and it's boggling me.

Mostly because I want something like WriteFreely, but less a headache to try to get to work.

Anyone happen to know what this tool is?

Thanks, and :boost_ok:​.

Thanks for your eyetime, and if you're a Coil user, thanks for that, too.

It's Monday.
I'm at my work site early because I let paratransit bring me. Tomorrow, I'm driving to the other office. Then I will figure out Wednesday.
I almost feel brave enough to drive over to this work site.

Why so worried? I'm driving a stick and I'm still learning things like the bite point of the clutch.

I'm not a big fan of shopping on Amazon, but there are times where my options are limited.
Local grocery stores only seem to carry Goya brand mojo criollo. I won't buy it because it doesn't taste right (along with other reasons, sure).
Reasonable search engines allow you to exclude a word from your search by prepending a minus sign in front of it.
So, a search in a reasonable engine using:
Β» mojo criollo -goya
would yield results excluding the word Goya, right?

That search on Amazon yields almost nothing BUT Goya brand mojo.

One of these days, I'll learn how to make my own damn mojo criollo, just to get something that isn't shitty Goya brand.

If the modifications are simple enough, I would love to implement them, just for extra braking power and options. Also, if the throttle max speed is disconnected, I wanted to reconnect it, because I really don't need 30mph in all gears. I need the three way switch to actually function.

But I can't seem to even find wiring info...

Biggest reason I went into this was to do some basic maintenance. The connector for my charger was loose and spinning in the socket, which was making me jumpy. I hated plugging in the charger, because my brain would run wild, thinking it's going to fry me.

Also, the holes underneath the scooter were letting in water and dirt, which I wanted to clean out.
I also wanted to figure out some info, and find that regenerative braking mod I saw for Citicoco scooters.

One of the two leads down to an XT60 connector that runs back into a block of wires that ends at the controller. The other goes straight to the controller itself.

Show thread

I made a stupid mistake. I didn't take a photo of a wiring harness before disconnecting the lead from the the charging input.
There are two possible connection points.
I am reasonably sure of which one, but the deep doubt is LOUD in my head.

Medical griping (cw: internal medicine, phrasings of body horror?) 

Why is it, that in an age where we can literally rearrange a person's guts and move internal organs from one body to another, that we can't have a simple port on our bodies for medical monitoring and delivery hardware?

Imagine a diabetic with a capsule that gets changed weekly, has a tracker for their CGM to connect, and the ability to release a dose of insulin or a glucose concentrate in case of emergency.

Imagine the kidney transplant recipient with a timed release dosing pod for their anti-rejection meds.

And, if we can keep fair-for-consumers pricing in mind, medical outcomes have room to improve.

I'm just musing this hour.

Past me: "But you still haven't plugged your scooter in."

Present me: "... feck."
