I've been having problems with RSS on my site. For now, I've managed to work around the issue, but you may need to update your feed URL if you subscribe to me (sorry).
Can any of you guys recommend an RSS feed generator please? The feed generation in Grav is pretty shitty, and the feeds don’t appear to be updating properly on my site.
I’m looking at some of my self-hosting guru friends, like @amolith
Interesting read on the origins of open source project names
@killyourfm I get that companies like Forbes need to make money, but that is just plain ridiculous. Surely the experience puts a lot of readers off?
@killyourfm unfortunately I’ve had to remove your Forbes feed from my RSS as it’s just unusable on mobile.
Full size banners and ads litter the screen constantly. Here’s my experience from the last 2 minutes on Forbes:
1) Full screen cookie warning
3) Full screen video when scrolling
4) ANOTHER full screen banner asking me to subscribe
Apple's new iOS 13 includes 'Sign in With Apple' that allows you to login to supported apps more privately.
In this video, @JoannaStern explains why it is more private than reusing passwords, using weak passwords, or logging in with Facebook/Google. https://www.wsj.com/video/series/joanna-stern-personal-technology/why-sign-in-with-apple-beats-passwords-and-facebook/21DE18B4-28CA-478C-99FB-C026C8BF993A
In a follow up to me writing about cookie tracking, here's some info on browser fingerprinting - https://kevq.uk/how-browser-fingerprinting-works
Fun fact: you can't name any file anywhere in windows 10 "aux.txt" or "aux" anything with any extension, because it was a reserved name in CP/M before dos was a thing.
If you commit "aux.txt" to a git repo, you break it for windows users. If you distribute "aux.txt" in a zip file, windows computers cannot extract it without error.
I got a promotion in work this week, very happy indeed. One of the things I’ve always wanted since getting into the fishkeeping hobby, is an Oscar.
I went to my local fish shop today to get some supplies and they had a pair of GORGEOUS fire oscars (the exact type I’ve always wanted).
I had to have them, but they need a HUGE tank as they’re a foot long each. My promotion treat to myself - a new tank and the 2 oscars!
Fosstodon, meet Betty and Dice. 😁
Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.
I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.
Boosts gratefully appreciated.
