I am done with the laundry for today. Had to iron my trousers and shirts. There was this question from my better-half: “Laundry today or naked tomorrow?”

In-reply-to » Oh, My G***! I found my old backup hard rive and on it, "ancient" iPhoto libraries. Dated back in 2008! and earlier. Converting them now to have a look and sort them out. For some of the images, I was looking into generating smaller versions, to show them to my family. Does anyone have a nice script to generate smaller versions or an idea how to do that?

@movq@www.uninformativ.de naja. but as we learned here, some people really do “hate” images on websites :-)

In-reply-to » "If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." /Desmond Tutu

@prologic@twtxt.net I read this in German and then used deepl to translate it into English. Hope it still makes sense. But yes, I do think, that in times of oppression, and you remain silent, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. It is difficult, yes, but if we be always silent and do not speak up, then things will go worse.

Super nice. After cleaning up the photos-share on my Synology, I freed up a whooping 60 GB in my off-site backup. That’s a relief! I was able to achieve this by converting numerous images and movies into more efficient formats.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de thanks a lot.

In-reply-to » @tel To be honest, it's not so comfortable for me to talk about political things, but i try not to avoid it or pretend not seeing it. The world is complicated, many things need to be done to make my country better, twtxt is one of the answers, but hate is none of them.

@prologic@twtxt.net Nice words. But do you really think that we all belong to the same species? I heard that there could be reptiles among humans and the center of the earth is inhabited by dragons. 🤣🤪 Or is everything just flat? #jokingAround

Sure, the world is complicated and sometimes it is difficult to talk about things you don’t like. And sometimes it is OK to just look away. But there are times, where we should not look away and react. In the end, it is your own decision what you do. Here, in this little knitting yarn universe, a lot of people do good things to help people stay connected.

In-reply-to » China is worst country in the universe. The governments' hand are full of blood. They have killed and tortured many innocent people. Bigger genocide than Hitler did in germany. China is worse than NK I hate China even more than Myanmar and NK combined

Personal opinion. His personal opinion. But I have to say, I do understand it. China or NK or Myanmar are not on my list of favorite countries to live in. Maybe visiting China/Hongkong, but for the rest. No, thank you, not interested. But we have to talk about things that happen there. Intervening is a different story.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Thanks. I was using this first when I later found out about the sips command on macOS.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de THIS is the stuff I was looking for. I was searching around twtxt but couldn’t find it as we talked about it the last time—I think we did. Or did I talk to lyse about sth, similar? I can’t remember. But this easy to use. Thanks. Btw: which git repo software do you use? Looks nice and easy and slim which could be run on my homelab instead of gitea e.g.

Cleaning up my iPhone 11. We go on vacation soon, so I need lots of space for photos and videos. I’m also considering replacing my Canon PowerShot SX730HS with an Olympus TG-6. Just to have a tougher cam with me. I am actually afraid of loosing my phone while on a RIP boat. Or I should get case with a strap. Anyone has a recommendation for that?

In-reply-to » Good Morning. I saw so many nice things on my way to work, but little to no time to stop and take a picture. Sorry. And then, the rain started and I had to go even faster. Glad, that I was already out of city center with all its cobblestone. Thanks to the Dutch that we have so many good cycling paths here.

@prologic@twtxt.net Yes it is, sometimes, But when they get wet, it gets pretty slippery on the bike.

In-reply-to » "Modern websites tend to dynamically generate everything from interpreted languages: the opposite of efficiency!" ~ josuah on nixers

@novaburst@twt.nfld.uk I know. But I use self hosted WordPress Instances for Journaling, Note-Taking, Blog, Wiki-like Knowledge System. I know the system very well. The main point here is, that I can use it from mobile and desktop and I can host it where I can reach it from any computer which has internet access. How do you do that with all your systems?
