In-reply-to > @ullarah Thanks mate! No need for me to switch the process of listening to music, though. Not sure why I would want to use my browser for that. In fact I try to do the exact opposite and try to avoid using it, if possible. ;-) I used xmms2 for quite some time back in the days, not sure why I finally ditched that, but that server/client setup might be a good solution to try again. There was a very good variety of clients available, I think I even tried to write my own at one point in time.

@lyse I’d look into writing something that supports the Subsonic API. A lot of clients support that type of API. https://www.navidrome.org/docs/developers/subsonic-api/

In-reply-to > Finally added validation to discovered peers! The list of now-VERIFIED, discovered peers, with at least one valid message is now at 703 (out of the 1449 unverified - a lot of garbage mentions are out there). https://xandkar.net/twtxt/peers.txt

Sorry to be a pain. Is there a dumb-downed version about what this means? 😬

In-reply-to > I'm really happy with how this has turned out. What does everybody think?

Thinner, maybe, I’m looking into that font compiling at some stage. The labels are the same size as the nav bar on desktop. Again, on mobile, I increased them a little bit otherwise they’re a bit on the small side.

In-reply-to > That’s also a funny excercise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HpOJXiImqY

You play guitar or bass? I’ve been doing something similar for a couple of weeks now before I start playing guitar. My short stubby fingers feel like they’re on fire each time hahaha!

In-reply-to > Hmm, yarnd still shows a "@xnedderdoes not follow you (they may not see your replies!)" message on profile pages for anonymous visitors. I reckon this message should only be rendered if the visitor is logged in. Also it appears that a space is missing between the user and the message.

Might not have a chance to do anything this weekend… I mean I will try and make time though! 😂

Gotta work on this bloody Excel power query issue that has come up at work. 😤

There is a love/hate relationship with that software.

In-reply-to > I'm finally beginning to delve into containers on Linux, after many years of assuming (since 2014) that containerization would be just another bygone, short-lived trend in IT history. This was such poor judgement on my part. I'm starting off with Podman outright.

@stutteringsteve that was my thought too! “Pfft containers, VMs will still be champion” is still technically true. But running up a docker instance of something by just simply writing a text-file is just something eerily magical.

I’d recommend checking out Proxmox. That was my first introduction to containers a few years back. Now I use portainer for all my stuff and considering using… gasp… RancherOS 😂

Oh wow! Yes! That looks 500x better. Consistency should be something to aim for between the app and web, in most cases anyway.

These are the changes I ended up making to the profile to make profiles and feeds streamlined. https://imgur.com/a/fDBQIHv

In-reply-to > Slightly on topic, the changes---albeit minimal, as @prologic once told me---that yarnd makes on the uploaded images are so visible! On my mobile and desktop, the image is crispy, and more colour rich.

Perhaps a global setting for image compression? That way if your instance has lots of space (and bandwidth I guess) they could choose 100 then default it to like 85 🤷🏼‍♂️

The only other suggestion would be to convert to png and then do a lossless crush on the image. in most cases they yield a lower filesize than a 100% jpeg.

In-reply-to > how do you geniuses handle all your passwords? People like pword managers but I have like 4 different OSes i use every day and on top of that centralised pword management makes me nervous, upset, and crabby. what if I have to log in from some other system ???

I use keeppass kbdx4 files. I use keepassxc with browser plugin on Fedora, and Strongbox on iOS and MacOS. I have them stored somewhere safe (duh 😂) and have a weekly backup running to two different locations.

Before that I was using vaultwarden, it’s a lighter version of bitwarden.

In-reply-to > From IRC:

@fastidious

  1. I’m not quite sure what you’re seeing. It looks fine on an iPhone 11, Samsung S20, and also desktop and inspector view.

  2. Something weird is going on with that. I have a feeling I know why it’s doing that. Won’t be able to look at it for a few hours.

  3. Again, too big? I’m not quite sure what you’re seeing. Attach a screenshot?


#fruz3oa
In-reply-to > Okay, for all of you who are following me. This is what I've come up with.

@fastidious @darch The only last issue I’m having is on mobile there is a large gap underneath the pod logo. However if I open up the menu and close it there is no gap.

`
.podLogo {
padding-bottom: 2rem;
}

#mainNav[class=“”] .podLogo {
padding-bottom: 0;
}
`
