🤦😖. Group MMS texts where everyone has an iPhone but me. "x Liked <whole message>", "y Loved <whole message>", et cetera

@person failing is a valuable part of learning. Knowing why it was flawed will help you avoid the same mistakes in the future.



"interviewer: Really, that's enough. We'll be in touch.

me: In touch, that sounds promising.

interviewer: ...


I didn't get the job."



Just so you and other reading this know Fosstodon's explaination for being English only.

When did THAT happen?"

This is what I was planning on for the main "home" for the media. But I was also going to create a static site to present it in a cleaner form.

The mockup I made (with placeholder media) has links back to the InternetArchive page for each piece of media, and would have a link to a filter/user page that would show all the media.

Anyone have experience with, or would otherwise recommend, hosting media files on for embedding in a static site?

For some context. A friend of mine passed away this past year. He was an avid caver, camper, traveler, and photographer.
The media hosted would be a large collection of his photographs, slideshows (with copyrighted music) from his wake, and a book of stories about him.

His family is wanting to get these online to share with others.

@cirno many people find it easier/more pleasant to read/write md vs. html. If you are just working on a personal project, continue to use html. If other people are going to be contributing to the project, consider using md to make it easier for them to contribute.

In replacement of by its creator : « is a community enterprise operating system designed to be 100% bug-for-bug compatible with Enterprise 8.4. Since this is the first Release of Rocky Linux, the release notes below reflect only changes in upstream functionality between point releases »

@theKingsRaven @Seferi @codeberg
I would think you could checkout that commit, and create a new branch from there. And then just merge that new branch into you target branch.

@owi I feel ya! It's okay to let a few things slide. Make sure you take time to take care of yourself, and your family.

Contributing to free software requires privilege. Even regular contributors might sometimes find themselves without it.

Time, focus and money. You might find yourself lacking in one of these at various points in your life.

While software projects from startups move like streams, most free software projects move like glaciers. They move slowly but they keep moving for decades.

Being away from a project doesn't mean you have to give it up. You can join back later.

You made yourself a hot beverage (coffee, tea, ...), but it's too hot to drink. Adding another liquid (cool water, milk, soy milk, ...) is an option.

You want to cool it down as quickly as possible. What do you do?

@floppy keep ice cubes made from coffee/tea on hand in the freezer. Drop one in when too hot. (I've never tried this)

@ralismark or maybe just one repo with 2 branches. One branch has just the config, and the other has both content and config. Then add 2 remotes, push the config branch to the public remote, and the config + content branch to the privet remote. Might be easier to manage, and if you use cicd to build the site, you can just work off the privet remote.

Here's to hoping a flag emoji is approved by the Unicode consortium.

Happy Juneteenth everyone!

@wesley Instead of going through the NC app, try adding your NC account manually from davx5.

@wesley that's the setup I currently use.
Is davx5 able to see your calendars for your NC account, and do you have them checked?

@linmob ahh... Sorry, I misunderstood the question.

Good to keep in your back pocket anyway. Debian prioritizes stability over having the lastest and greatest, so it's good for building newer versions then what's available in the package repo.

@ralismark Obviously depends on what is possible with the static sight generator, but could the setup and content be split up in different git repos?

i.e. Have the docs dir it's own repo, and the parent dir that holds the config for the generator, it's own repo.
