Lunch Trance – 2024-05-15 – Newsflash

Well, that was a hot mess of a show, and literally so. The encoding machine got so warm that it started refusing to do anything related to encoding which for an encoding machine is not a good look!

Good thing I bought a small fan a couple weeks back, so I was able to point something at the encoding machine which made it get back to work, for a while at least. Of course at some point its batteries were empty, and of course it cannot work and charge at the same time, and so began an endless cycle of me turning the thing on, it cooling the system for a bit until its battery ran out, me not noticing for a while during which the fan could charge, and then me finally noticing and turning it back on.

The thing I used to keep the other thing in check. (Picture by Amazon user MettDroid.)

Just now after the show I went into the machine’s BIOS and fiddled with some fan settings which immediately made the fans go wild but OBS was able to display the shaders at a smooth 60 fps. I’ll give that more spin over the weekend and maybe I’ll even disassemble the thing once, to take a look inside and see if I notice anything. What would probably help would be to re-seat the heat sink on the CPU, with new thermal paste and everything, but it’s hard to put into words how much I do not want to do that. 😄

Anyway, in addition to almost-burning CPUs we also had a bunch of 🔥 tracks tonight! I absolutely recommend listening to the show again, and I totally need you to listen to my Favourite of the Week™: John Askew and Shelby Merry – “Steady & Stronger!”

The rest of the show was also pretty cool, and you can verify that here:

The next show will be on Wednesday, May 22, at 19:00 CEST/UTC+2.
