08:20 am - A brief comment on Georgia.
I want to talk about these election results from yesterday.

And I'm not going to remark on the Democrat taking such a big share of votes, or anything like that. I just want to know if anyone else noticed that PENNYWISE THE DANCING CLOWN is apparently a Republican congressional candidate?

This is, as the saying goes, basic shit.

09:14 pm - Rollover day.
Today marks the start of year 13. Normally I'd be all "death ray! Comment statistics! posts!" but honestly, I just don't care this year.

It's surprisingly tricky.

11:14 am - For the people interested:
This year's Hugo Award finalists were announced about an hour ago.

It's a good list this year, only a couple of real turds and some truly excellent options.

Best Dramatic Long: HIDDEN FUCKING FIGURES. That one is winning OR ELSE I WILL TURN THIS CAR AROUND I'm just saying.

10:24 pm - Help me lazyweb.
Yikes, I haven't made a post in a while. OK, first New!Content! in a week.... tell me about music players.

Yes, yes, "a smartphone", I know that one. Phones *suck* as music players for me because the controls are on a touchscreen, which tends to lock, making them COMPLETE ASS while driving.

I want a device that plays music with:
1) a standard stereo out that will go to my car's stereo in.
2) at least 30GB of storage
3) CONTROLS THAT I CAN OPERATE ONE-HANDED WITHOUT LOOKING AT THEM. I don't care if I have to look at it to select a specific track or podcast or something, but I want to be able to reach down from the gearshift and, at the very least, manage play/pause/forward/back, by touch alone.
4) Controls that let me choose specific tracks, playlists, podcasts, etc if I *am* looking at them.

Nice to have: Syncs to the old version of iTunes that I've neutered down to the way I like it and that I use to sort my music.

Basically, the perfect device that works exactly the way I want it is the 6th generation iPod Classic, which, since it's a perfectly good tool that fills an important niche that the iPhone doesn't, Apple no longer makes it. You can get them on eBay for, like, $800 and fuck that. It's actually the device I've got right now, but despite lasting WAY longer than any Apple product normally does, it's starting to fail on me (it crashes and the battery life isn't great any more).

So. I'm not spending $800 for a used device, or even for a "new in box" Apple device manufactured in 2014. Apple's batteries are legendary, and not in a good way - my device living as long as it has makes it an outlier. Who makes a device these days, that plays music through a stereo jack, with controls that can be operated by touch?

Imagine being *such a dipshit* that you side with spammers and telemarketers and other malware vendors.

Of course, Chuck Asay loves telemarketers because they're the only time a human will talk to him.
