So the old WPF app isn't cutting it anymore to change the availability calendar on one of my websites (I know, no, databases weren't a good option). Looking for an alternative to rewrite it for Linux natively and preferably an easy way to port it to Android.

Is Qt the best option here?

Finally found a solution to a long time problem of mine: not being able to change the audio output device on certain applications in pavucontrol/PulseAudio.
Solution: create a configuration file called alsoft.conf in ~/.config and enter the following:

[pulse]
allow-moves=yes

Source: wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/PulseAudi

It's looking like an interesting concept so far, but it doesn't feel ready for daily use. Swiping still feels a little unnatural, buttons on the phone (back , home, etc) don't work at all, the OpenStore doesn't load a home page. I can search for apps, but not install them.

Currently installing Ubuntu Touch on my OnePlus One. Let's see how it works out :) The Arch package didn't work, but apparently the Snap does.

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

Reddit may be hit or miss when it comes to certain subreddits, but I really like /r/indiegameswap. You know those duplicates or games you're never going to play when purchasing bundles from sellers like Humble Bundle? It's really easy to trade them for some other cool games instead :)

I find it interesting how some streamers are migrating to Mixer, usually because Twitch moderators are inconsistent with their rules. It's too bad it's owned by Microsoft, just as bad as Amazon (if not worse).

Are there any good alternatives? I wonder if it could be possible to make a decentralized streaming platform?

as the heatwave hits both america and europe, this is a handy infographic to pass around

people who are elderly, young, or chronically ill are more susceptible to this!

many head meds (SSRIs, etc) make this more likely as well!

heatstroke can also come with confusion and other mental symptoms. if you see someone who is warm to the touch, not sweating, and acting oddly in this heat (especially if in categories of ppl at risk) - please help get them medical attention! heatstroke can kill!

Thinking about upgrading my graphics card. The GTX 980 is having more and more issues running newer games at 2560x1440 at a high refresh rate.

The new RX 5700XT from AMD looks very nice, but I would lose my G-Sync functionality so I might go with a RTX2070S instead.

..so now I have to find a pet sitter who would be willing to chill in a nice house with a huge garden 5 minutes of cycling from the city center of Amsterdam, in exchange for walking, feeding and petting an amazing dog. House comes included with food and a bicycle.

It's from August 10 until 16. Any pet sitters here?

Why are so many websites dependent on Cloudflare? Down again, along with all the websites that use it.

For all those who're also currently enjoying a heatwave, please remember to drink plenty of water and try to avoid too much direct sunlight during solar noon. ☀️
