Now that I have my first company computer since before COVID, my use of Linux and BSD will be more extracurricular.

On Friday I kept the personal laptop running OpenBSD all day because it's better behaved when it comes to reliably suspending and resuming.

Again, if you haven't run OpenBSD on the desktop in years, things have come a very long way.

@passthejoe I assume WSL is completely out of the question?

@MonaApp Running Beta 6(47245) and it seems like the post composer no longer checks spelling automatically. Didn’t it used to do this?

Stop putting “AI” into everything!

When was the last time a feature like this was shoehorned into so many unnecessary places?

@Mrfunkedude Talking more from a tech angle. Actual work to add features that mostly no one wants.

Hang on, if we don't let Olympic athletes fuck during the games, what is even the point of them spending grueling hours getting good at their sport?

Do you think the Greeks didn't know about wrestling as foreplay??

@Binder I’ve never understood the issue with them having fun at the Olympics. As long as it’s all consensual, what’s the big deal?

1/5 For the last two years I’ve been working on Plinky, sharing my work publicly while the app has been in beta.

Today it’s finally ready to go live in the App Store, and I’d like to not only share the app with you but share more about why I built it.

https://plinky.app/download

What is Plinky?

@mergesort This looks interesting. Planning to do highlights? I guess this has it’s own sync backend and not iCloud? Also noticed this in the App Store image. I guess that should be iPad?

Worst part of the Apple iPad thing today. Apparently no more Folio Keyboard.

📚 Finally found my pet peeve with Kobo. It was not too easy.

I wish books not purchased from Kobo would sync across devices. Seems like all my previously bought books load with no issues, but do not sync.

I could load them on multiple apps, but reading progress will not update.

mcg,
@mcg@social.lol avatar

@maique I think you can do this with the Kobo using Calibre, but then you’d need to manage Calibre.

mcg,
@mcg@social.lol avatar

@maique It can sync between Kobo “devices” but not the app.

There are plenty of valid concerns about this new org, but as @ehashman says the idea that a 501(c)3 is somehow a place to hide money is bonkers.

@rysiek Thanks for pointing to this thread and WTF. We really do need a strong Mastodon alternative. GTS has been on my watch list for a long time, along with https://github.com/jointakahe/takahe . Really wanted Takahe to make it since it’s the only one that supports multiple domains. Development has really slowed for it however.

@adam What’s the backstory with that?

Am I crazy, or isn’t there a way to boost a post from another account in Mona? I seem to remember doing it. Long pressing the boost icon triggers that in Ivory, I thought it did the same in Mona.

mcg,
@mcg@social.lol avatar

@maique I don’t remember this, but doubt I used cross account boosting much. This does work with favoriting. I thought maybe it had to do with the combined quote/boost button, UI would be a mess to support multiple accounts in that. You can split the buttons but still no long press.

I’ll be doing some maintenance on social.lol starting at 4 AM UTC (so, in around 13 hours) and over the course of about an hour or so. The disruption should be minimal (no more than a few minutes of downtime). Thanks for your patience as I work to keep the server running nicely!

mcg,
@mcg@social.lol avatar

@adam While I appreciate you do these changes off normal hours(for US time zones at least), I would be even more appreciative if you did them at a more reasonable hour for you. Or maybe this hour is a normal awake time for you😀? We pay so little for the service I hate to see you stress yourself to manage it.

New post: The Worlds of Podcasting https://rknight.me/blog/the-worlds-of-podcasting/

In which I get annoyed, like @siracusa
did this week, about lazy corporate "big podcast" podcasts

@robb @siracusa I’ve dropped more than one podcast I generally enjoyed, but couldn’t stand the DIA’s.

Apple argues in favor of selling Macs with only 8GB of RAM https://9to5mac.com/2024/04/12/apple-8gb-ram-mac/

mcg,
@mcg@social.lol avatar

@passthejoe Even if it was enough(it’s not), it won’t be soon. If you could easily add memory, then this would be less of an issue, but you can’t and selling these locked to 8 gives them a much shortly lifespan. Early e-waste. Ram is cheap and Apple sells memory upgrades at obscene prices. This comes down to greed, that’s it.

@passthejoe Way more than 32G.
