@prologic speaking of network gear, what do you run? If you don’t mind me asking.
Pretty sure you have a special feed for this 😅
@prologic I still have my 55” Samsung TV that is still going all these years. Paid a pretty penny for it hahaha. Although LG TVs are looking good because now just recently you have the ability to root the TV and remove useless features.
I wish you could just buy dumb TVs (PC monitors?) that can’t be connected.
I dislike IoT devices. Who’s fucking bright idea is it to have white goods connected? What purpose does it really have?
“Hey you can connect your toaster to the internet” … 🤦
Is it just me or is anybody else just not feeling it this week? 😅
Internet services is Australia are basically fucking shithouse
Ain’t that the truth.
@fastidious I have done things in the past, primarily as a teenager 😅, that once I got a full-time job I actually went out and bought products, I got collectors editions of items. I spread the word when I had nothing and gave my support when I had the means to.
Sure, is everybody going to do that? Oh hell no. There are some people out there that will continue to obtain free products. But the point still remains that it should be easy for customers to be able to choose a non-restricted format.
@fastidious if I give you a copy of a song from this amazing band that you’ll be sure to love you’ll be exposed to a brand new band that you’ve never heard of before.
You’ll also be inclined to seek out more of their music, go to their concert, buy merchandise. So to me that is more exposure from a single copied song that literally has no loss of sale or impact.
Nothing stops you from photocopying a physical book to give to many.
It’s not bad for business. It actually gives business more exposure. The fact that you can’t purchase a product without some form of DRM is down right shitty.
I’m not a connoisseur of much digital media except for games; Steam and GOG (Good Old Games). GOG distributing their products without DRM won me over as I don’t have to worry about licensing or “activations” etc.
@kt84 oh geez hahaha! But… why? There is literally a KFC just 6.3km away. 😂
It’s so they can get customers coming from Costco I would imagine!
I would have been happy with #FuckAmazon myself 🤣
@darch wow! That’s insane! This information will be very useful next time I have to come up with random facts! 😄
@darch I can’t find it (of course!) but I believe the strawberry is actually the black seeds and not the red/pink flesh.
@prologic My partner in crime linked it to me!
Okay weird thing I found out today… Corn is considered a fruit
@prologic ah righto. Tor never sat right with me. It just goes to show there really is something missing with all of these alternatives. It’s great that there are options but most if not all of them just completely miss the mark.
@fastidious @prologic I’ve noticed this even when in yarns regardless of being in drawer mode. I have a feeling the JS is not too happy with it being cloned, deleted, and the pasted back… I’m sure it can be fixed. I’ll take a gander some time today.
If all else fails drawer mode can be reverted back to a user option or feature quite easily. 👍
@prologic I know what it is. Something isn’t quite right with the JS. No code was changed but the box no longer appears after entering the @ symbol on the post box. The box no longer disappears after selecting a user either… 🤔
@fastidious says the person that has a long weekend. 😂
It’s already the third week into the year and it feels like the year is dragging on… 🤣
@prologic wow that’s a really nice sunset!
@movq oh god don’t remind me.
@movq It’s been year of Linux for me since 2004. The day I got a magazine with Fedora Core 2 and found instructions on running Unreal Tournament 2004 just hooked me in. The real issue lies within hardware vendors, like you said driver related changes, that keep it back. I’m still stuck in the 90s/00s for gaming. I recently discovered a lovely DOS collection that will keep me busy for years.
@prologic Thank goodness! My hacked up CSS did the trick, but I’m glad it’s now officially in. Hoping I get a chance to update this tonight and check. Thanks for the heads up! 👍
@prologic @fastidious The @ mentions are fixed in dev. The issue? Classic CSS. The center-crop issue is fixed but will require testing to make sure. And added the drawer-look feature to yarn articles. And a wild-and-weird textbox duplication bug which is now squashed.
I think we should introduce Hiccup to yarn… LOL
Websites I visit still do this today, especially when loading websites. It’s horrible.
Thanks @fastidious! Just pop everything in this yarn (or a git issue). I’ve noticed quite a lot of gap at the bottom on mobile view. Will get that fixed haha!
@prologic You’re too kind haha.
@eaplmx On the new develop branch I have successfully (and tested!) the post box movement for replies, edits, and forks.
@prologic correct! I’ll look into it tonight 👍
Somebody hits reply and the post box moves underneath what you’re replying to. The same would apply to forks.
I’ve used the same passphrase since I’ve been 12 and it’s memorised. Never had an issue with it since it’s 36 characters in length including all standard characters to keep password fields happy.
Although it will be interesting to see what happens when I get just that little bit older…
Wow, that’s nuts! I wonder if they put a mocap suit on the dog?
@eaplmx spot on! It’s one thing to be heard, it’s another to be listened to, and another to have ideas!
moving_average_feed_refreshand now twts from other pods show as they were showing before, fast and furious! I am voting no on the feature to make it to the code permanently. If anything, make it a toggle under pod management, please.
@fastidious I had that implemented too. I hadn’t noticed any difference tbqh 😅
@fastidious I just wish the government, Australia especially, does some god damn better work at security implementations. To login to our govt. services require a password (or digital identity… yuck) and an OTP is sent via SMS! Don’t want SMS? Here download our own implementation of TOTP codes app… 🤯
@lyse with the fancier views you also get a “download” link to the full version.
IIRC you’re using a text based client? (Jenny? or is that movq?? 😂) If that’s the case I wonder what we could do to be compatible with that.
Hey @darch, that theme you were working on, copenhagen?, That might be now do-able in the custom CSS section for poderators now. Give it a whirl! 🤞
Unless of course it requires extra JS and things that aren’t strictly CSS.
@prologic no idea! However I have now come across a styling issue with gallery and mobile view 😅
@hacker-news I guess you might as well put the Nintendo Switch in your DMZ.
Waking up with gout in the ankle. Yep, that’s exactly what I wanted on a Thursday. For those who are unaware, gout is a inflammatory disease built up by uric acid. Usually bought on by seafood, red meat, tomatoes etc.
Excruciating pain. Imagine somebody hamming your foot hard at random intervals while a dull blade hacksaw is moving back and forth on the ankle.
Excuse me while I take some painkillers.
JS is nowhere near my original project so it’s staying that way haha!
@prologic haha very slowly! I’m slowly (and terribly) rewriting one of my web based projects in golang. 😅
@darch this is exactly what we are discussing to potentially introduce very soon. We have several ideas of implementation. I would love it if you have ideas to consider too!
@eaplmx glad to see another Python user! 👌
@prologic LibreTranslate? Might be something that can be added as an optional feature. Display a “translate” button on each yarn if enabled. Tap on it to have it translated to your selected language set in settings?
“Haasi’garn” - How is it going? In Australian bush linguistics. It’s spelt many different ways but this is how I know it. “Howzitgoin” is the other usual way, but it’s pronounced differently.
I’ll have to record myself saying it 😂
