Shameless plug:

Red Hat's big annual tech conference went virtual this year (thanks COVID-19). But also, the two day virtual event is free to attend now!

Full disclosure: I'm a Red Hatter and my team has built a pretty incredible Kubernetes + Kafka + Knative + Tensorflow + Ceph demo for this event. I am super proud of their hard work!

@ajz Thanks for giving the only useful response!

Just finished (died) a Virtual Zombicide game with some friends using Tabletop Simulator. It was as fun as playing the game in person and the game itself is very well made. Totally recommended!

@marwe Oh man, my bad for not searching things properly. Can't wait for it though!

@marwe I've set the flag to true manually but Firefox still let me load HTTP sites :(

@the_codebalion Well, let's first start with the kana. Step by step... 😂

@the_codebalion I found some other stuff:
- apps.apple.com/us/app/learn-ja an iOS app to learn Hiragana/Katakana (with writing indications)
- wanikani.com/ to learn kanji using mnemonics

Can you give me an url to immersion? Is such a common word that I did not find anything related 😅

A friend's instagram account apparently got hacked, and their username, email and password changed.

Has anyone experienced this before? According to Instagram, the old email account should have received an email about that name/email change, which didn't seem to happen.

I can't make sense of how they managed to hack that account. Any pointers appreciated!

[Thanks for Boosting]

@the_codebalion Thanks a lot! I need to schedule some time regularly for this, and videogames could be the key to practice a bit each week. Again, thanks a lot :)

@the_codebalion How did you start with Japanese? I always wanted to learn it, but never got to start seriously. Any recommendations? I want to know more than the usual words the next time I go to Japan :)

@kev The thing is that we're not talking about hardware rent. This thing is in my home in my network and contain personal files. I got a NAS precisely to not worry about anyone else peeking around.

If they would like to provide support, they would have provide me with the commands to run to check whatever they were gonna check, but instead of that they refused. (I clearly told them that I have tech knowledge).

For me this is shameful. I'm considering switching brands.

For everyone out there with a . I have a problem with an application (Moments) in mine, contacted support for help and they "can't" provide support unless I approve remote access to my NAS...

I rejected politely and looked for other options but they said the can't help without access.

So I'm basically on my own to make my not cheap NAS app to work...

@kev This is what I see. I just installed it and make a test.

@kev Yeah but it seems more than a portfolio app rather than user facing. What I have to do is contact synology support for assistance or something, the perks of paying for stuff.

This is what happens to me if you're curious: community.synology.com/enu/for?

@kev I've tried several JPG files from two different cameras + my phone (android, so no HEIC problems from iPhone). No luck. Some people solve it by fiddling with permissions of the folder, no luck for me. :(

@kev It doesn't matter how I upload pictures to it (copy&paste, mobile app), they just don't get recognised by the app. All multimedia is shown as a warning sign ⚠️ like it can't found the file. But it's there. :(
