Boosts needed!

@hyperlink I JUST realized that that's a friggin' snout in your display name and not an old desktop-style telephone


I finally went on birdsite after a few days of not being on there and I suddenly see why everyone was talking about goddamn cakes now

@hyperlink I’m kind of afraid to ask this, but also compelled to:

What kind of things did Cool Gizmo say?

Angery gender feels 

Men’s shorts: available in such attractive colours as:
-Blue/black/beige plaid

Christ I wish I could fit into femme clothing

Religion, audiohazard 

Harry Potter
Harry Potter
Potter Potter
Harry Harry


feeling completely drained, and it's made worse by the fact that I'm broke too.

Honestly I really doubt I can afford the new ARM Mac, so that's probably a non-starter¸ but we'll see.

I need a new computer! What should I get? Main uses include shitposting, netflix and occasionally some actual dev work.

(boosts welcome)

It also has base 5, for some reason??? Who uses that?!

That last issue is probably caused by it using a 10 digit decimal mantissa for all calculations, because in decimal mode, anything above 10 digits becomes scientific notation automatically.

Oh and to make matters EVEN WEIRDER, if you input a hex value that has an acceptable number of hex digits but would produce a result with more than 10 decimal digits, it throws an error. So FFFFFFFFFFh is fine but 3333333333h blows up. The pictured number here is -9999999999 decimal, and if you subtract 1 from it, you get an error, for example.

This calculator has a really wacky way of doing binary math. It uses 2’s complement, but with a 10 digit word size in whatever base you’re using. So -1==1111111111b==FFFFFFFFFFh==7777777777o.

I bought a $20 CAD steam card for what I thought was a nice internet trade and then realized I was getting scammed before I handed the number over. Would someone want to buy it off me for cheap? Say $10?
