Wikipedia is asking for donations again (at least here in Germany). They show a (very annoying) popup. When you close it, a second small popup appears and asks if you would like to donate at a later point. As I actually do intend to donate some bucks later, I clicked “yes”.
Trouble is, that popup appears every time.
Just now, I clicked “no, I do not want to donate” for a change. Turns out, now the popup is gone for good. 🥴
So I now have to click “no” all the time (because I don’t store cookies when the browser closes). This sends the wrong signal to Wikipedia. 😂 I do want to donate, I just want the damn popup to be gone.
Gar so stürmisch war es hier in der letzten Zeit nicht. Aber das wäre natürlich noch lustiger, wenn der Topf mitsamt „anonymer Anzeige“ in Sicherheit gebracht und dann wieder rausgestellt worden wäre … 😂
Ich behalte die Situation im Auge. 😏 (Aktenzeichen bringt mich nicht weiter oder ich weiß nicht, wo ich da Infos zu finde.)
@eaplmx This is so crazy.
I just don’t get how this is not a transitive problem. What good does it do if only some states at the border follow US time? Doesn’t this just shift the problem from, say, Juárez to Ahumada? Before, Juárez had trouble with Texas. Now, Ahumada should have trouble with Juárez, so the issue has just shifted. 🤷
Humans are strange. 🤪 👽
@lyse Keine Ahnung, heute zum ersten Mal gesehen. 😅 Schade, dass man das Datum nicht mehr lesen kann. Wüsste gerne, wie lange das alles schon so da steht. 🥴
@lyse IIUC, the common feral pigeons are descendants of Rock Doves and/or Wood Pigeons. (Legend says that they didn’t come here by accident but are descendants of pets, escaped from breeders … hence they multiply so quickly.)
More timezone confusion in Mexico: https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2022-November/032358.html I don’t claim to fully understand what’s going on there. Rather sudden changes, though.
Erster Akt: Jemand stellt einen Blumenkübel mit Blumen für Bienen auf.
Zweiter Akt: Anonyme Anzeige, denn das geht ja schließlich nicht. Wo kämen wir da hin.
Dritter Akt: Nix passiert, steht immer noch da, Hinweisschild vergammelt. 🤣👍
@logout Uh, the nostalgia. 😅 That is an actual PowerPC machine, not an emulated system, right?
@logout Glad to hear that. 😊
@darch Your reply used a completely wrong mention. 🤔 What happened here? 😅
@logout If pine / alpine can work with Maildir, you might be able to use that instead of mutt. 🤔 Anyway, welcome again. 🙂
@logout Probably not. Clients will probably not pick up your change, I guess.
Got drying machines after all. Oh, the noise. 😮💨
@lyse Curious, I see Türkentauben (eurasian collared dove) all over the place now. 🤔 The ones I saw at my place made the stranges sounds, not like pigeons at all. Didn’t get a chance to record it, though.
This was a phantastic game. I wish you could play it a second time. (I remember pretty much every detail, so …)
@lyse A boar, oh dear. 😳 Sunny weather makes for much more appealing photos, if you ask me. 😅
@lyse Thanks. 🙃 Yeah, I’m pretty high up, but there’s still people above me (so still plenty of opportunity for water damage 😅). But, well, even at the top I’d get water damage, because the roof is leaking. 🤣
The first raptor (4273), oof, I was just a couple of meters away from it – but I didn’t notice and neither did the bird. 🥴 Then we pretty much noticed each other at the same time, I reached for the camera, but of course it flew away. Luckily, it landed again nearby, so it could still make some shots using high zoom.
It looks super foggy from my apartment (tower building and all – I see a plain white wall when I look out the window), so I thought I’d go for a walk and take the camera with me, because fog can make for some great shots. Turns out, it’s only foggy up here, not so much down on the ground. Oh well.
I was hoping for more wet spider webs.
Android killed my GPS logger halfway through, great, thanks for that.
@prologic Huh, I hadn’t checked. As it turns out, it uses this by default:
@justamoment No, no, no, you’re not a bot. Everything’s fine. 🙃 (Hey, psst, Steve! The bots are getting self-aware! We should reboot the system …)
@prologic Neat indeed. 🤔
While we’re at it, I just learned through text-to-diagram.com that Graphviz (which I’ve used basically forever) is dying:
This project has only 3 of its founders remaining as volunteer maintainers, and support is limited and may end soon. If you can help fund to a more formal foundation to continue this project, please contact north on graphviz org.
D2 does appear to produce better results, though, anyway … 🤔
@lyse I see what you did there! 😅
10.jpg is a lovely shot. 👌
Did you take those shots after sundown without a tripod? 🤔
@lyse lol 😅 I think you pass the test. 👌 (Well, is a slide a bridge? 🤔)
@lyse Select all images with bridges
Huh, just noticed that my client currently holds 51839 twts (28 MB). Way more than I expected. 😅 (I’m not following any bots.)
@lyse That’s right. 🤔 Those sheets are not exactly A4. And they’re super thin, very little stability – that’s the main problem, I guess.
Playing upright bass is so much fun. 😊 I struggled a lot in the beginning and that shit is still super hard, but it’s getting better every day. 🥳 Been at it for about half a year now …
(Backing track is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tn5P88OOJkc with the bass cut out.)
@abucci Right, hence a disconnected branch that you’d never interact with. 🤔 But really, no idea, I’ll have to take a closer look at the project first. 👌
Interesting indeed. I’m curious why they didn’t chose a dedicated branch with regular files instead of working with Git objects directly. 🤔 Might be an interesting project for a gloomy weekend.
@lyse Sneaky edit. 😏 I had to look up if it could be real. 😅
I was about to throw away some “Gelbe Seiten”, then I remembered this twt. It kind of … works … a bit … nah, it doesn’t.
@logout (I’m not even sure if you can properly read my multiline reply with the old original client. Hmm.)
@logout Yeah, none of the original twtxt clients support the newer stuff that was developed in the context of Yarn.social. That topic in brackets, in particular, is specified in these two documents:
On https://yarn.social/, three clients are listed:
jenny is my own client, so, to be honest, I never gave the other ones a try. Nevertheless, I presume that they all support the aforementioned extensions.
There certainly is a lack of clients, that’s for sure. We could use more of them. :-)
@xuu Ohhh, thank you. 🤯 Yeah, now I hear it, too.
To be fair, the ad is a bit longer than just that snippet. 😅 The rest of it wasn’t relevant to my question, though. (It’s messages from Ukrainian students asking for help/support.)
@eaplmx That might be it, yes. 🤔
Too bad. It’ll remain a mystery then. 🥴
@stigatle Absolutely. 😍 Orange-red light is the best.
@lyse Oh, it was by accident. At first, I thought you found something better. 😅
@logout Heyho, welcome aboard. :-) 🥳
Dear native english speakers, I keep hearing this ad on di.fm:
The what foundation? 🤨 Collotrary? Connotrary? I don’t understand what this dude is saying and this keeps bugging me. 😅
@lyse Das kann aber ins Auge gehen! (Es ist Freitag … 🤪)
@carsten That’s neat. Instead of throwing away all the useless snail mail spam, I’ll make paper planes now. 😁
@lyse Die Ziege hat zu viel Fernsehen geguckt. Die hat rechteckige Augen gekriegt.
@lyse Huh, that’s interesting! Also didn’t know that Yotta and Zetta only existed since 1991. I leared “Milli, Micro, Nano, Pico, Femto, Atto” at a young age from an old book. But not “Zepto, Yokto”. Never thought about it, now I know why! 😅
@lyse Yeah, most tech people do. Most non-tech people don’t, hence the drama. 😅
Oh dear. Wifi monitoring is really hard. We have the same problem. We tried to do what he proposes (setting up Raspberry Pis as “wifi probes”, setting up entire laptops, you name it, …), but we hardly gained any insights.
The nasty thing about wifi is that it’s not enough to know whether a device is connected or not. Yes, sure, if all your wifi probes in one area suddenly disconnect, then you have a problem. But how do you test for roaming? How do you test for client behaviour, like “wifi chip $a behaves ever so slightly different than chip $b”? How many probes do you deploy, one per room? That adds up quickly.
At the end of the day, many of our users are dissatisfied with our wifi – and we admins can’t reproduce their problems, because we don’t use the exact same configuration that they do. 😢
(We recently switched to offering Ethernet by default again. That’s much more convenient these days, because many laptops have USB-C: Users connect one cable and get everything – power, monitor, Ethernet, USB hub. Not all workplaces have such a setup, though.)
@prologic Do I understand correctly that Yarn uses https://github.com/gomarkdown/markdown for rendering twts in the web UI? I’m asking because it irks me that Gopher URLs aren’t converted into links. 😅 There’s probably nothing that Yarn can do because this is done here, right? https://github.com/gomarkdown/markdown/blob/master/parser/parser.go#L724
@rsdoiel My main concern would be uploading GPS data to some cloud service. The big question is: Does my Android phone collect such data in the background and then upload it to Google? I don’t know. It’s annoying that I have to think about this. For the moment, I’m just ignoring it. (A dedicated device would not have this problem.) Also, use more Gopher! 😅
@lyse I had to think twice what “Bauchaufzüge” means. :-) Nice visualization. “Strecke 2D” vs. “Strecke 3D” is interesting - didn’t expect it to make that much of a difference for such a short path. 🤔 Also, you might be right, basic navigation probably works with the OSM app. The only thing is, it greets me with “unpaid version, 5 downloads” remaining, so, dunno how long it’ll remain usable.
@lyse Looks like I got something new to play with: gopher://uninformativ.de/0/phlog/2022-11/2022-11-17–gps-logger.txt (tl;dr: “GPS Logger” does the trick for me, it creates GPX files 🥳)
