So many interesting talks from to watch. It's going to take weeks going through them.

The clean and organized media website is also much appreciated, especially the audio translations! Though it's also an opportunity to practice some German comprehension as well 🙂

Why do markdown text editing apps on Android almost always have their own special directory to read from? Is it a security permission issue? This breaks the "open with" functionality from other apps, which is a notable inconvenience.

Anyway, I finally found Markor, which has been awesome for my use-case, and doesn't have the directory restriction.

My Google+ browser and Oddmuse poster code is online, now. If somebody has a different export format, it should be reasonably easy to add. What I care about is the ability to review the posts. I want to delete the ones I decide not to move to the new site. I can't just dump everything!

Looks like Edge is moving to chromium. So, whatever is going to happen to all those "Edge is faster" anti-chrome Win10 pop-up ads? Funny how things change...

Unbelievable! feh has finally changed "f" to be fullscreen? No more _filelist files?

Why was this not all over the news? 😂

I've been trying to learn German on my own for a long time, and I seem to be stuck at a certain level for a while now. A bit frustrating.

Now contemplating whether to start with online classes with real teachers. Would that help? Feels very awkward...

I think the Dell U4919DW, with a resolution of 5120x1440 is my ideal monitor :)

How serious is the abolishment of Daylight Saving Time in EU countries?

Hopefully, it's for real, and other regions follow as well. Never understood the need for it.

Hetzner cloud is advancing really fast. They seem to be adding new features every month.

At this rate, it's going to end up so much better than DigitalOcean.

One of the biggest wars on the Internet seems to be "tracking for advertisement" vs "blocking".

But, do ads really work? How effective are they? Do people click on them? Do people buy things through tracking based ads?

There are articles here and there, but Is there a serious unbiased study on this?

I keep forgetting, not everyone on the Fediverse is a Linux user 😀 :linux:

The first distro I ever attempted to install (unsuccessfully) was Definite Linux 7. Because, it came on a magazine at around 1999.

Unbelievably, what appears to be their website, still exists. Last updated year 2000 :)

I wish Firefox would include a simple "follow-the-hint" functionality built in, so we don't have to install extensions with extensive permissions.

Finally, got QMK working on a Tada68. A new era of keyboarding has begun 😀

Ex-Google CEO Eric Schmidt: "I think the most likely scenario now is not a splintering, but rather a bifurcation into a Chinese-led internet and a non-Chinese internet led by America,".

Led by America? And the rest of the world just goes in line, and lets Google decide what we can or cannot see?

Anyone ask for any Internet leadership?

In my case, I started out with the classic typewriter layout, by sticking labels on the keys. It was a mess, and couldn't be done at work.

I have since taken a more pragmatic approach and moved to phonetic.

For starters, I'm not even sure the traditional layout is scientific.

But more importantly, while it may work for large languages with ready made keyboards, insisting on solutions that most people will not do, would actually be hurting the language in the current digital age.
