I switched to - I think - Syncthing, which after some mucking around and disabling ipv6 has worked perfectly and silently. It's absolutely brilliant.
Plus I recently found what I hope are the last few links my personal website had to dropbox-hosted content, which I think they turned off like half a decade ago?
Friend made this, and it's cool. https://twitter.com/LoialOtter/status/1252170766268825600
So I now have the option of watching the pirated version, which actually works, or watch the DVD version which is 12 minutes longer on my roommate's mac. Where it works perfectly.
The third computer? It's a Surface and has no disk drive. And there's also a fourth which is too old to play it any more.
I've been at this an hour. 😭 Why does nothing work ever.
Well, this is bad. 😐
So I've got two computers here. Three, actually. And I want to watch a DVD of the 1967 Casino Royale.
The first computer hooked up to our living room TV has decided it won't talk to *that particular* display. It works fine with the others I have. But not that one.
So, on to my desktop, which is nice because it's got a 4k display anyway. DVD won't play, VLC's figuring it's region-locked or something? Mplayer flashes the FBI warning...
I feel a great need to share this twitter post from a friend of mine. https://twitter.com/AzureLazuline/status/1246486436427300865
