  • Upscaling about two hours of video for fun. I guess I won't really need to heat my place for a couple of days.

  • @e_mydata @gael still not seeing any update for the FP3. Well, at least not one that doesn't crash the updater. It'd be really good to get one with the new microG that includes support for contact tracing.

  • @nextcloud I use the nextcloud client flatpak on @elementary . Since the latest update I'm having trouble to get the client to show its UI. Is it possibly because elementary doesn't do indicators?

  • I always feel bad when someone that is new to a technology asks a very specific question about what the better approach is and the proper answer in short is "depends". It mostly tells them that they haven't learned enough yet and need to learn more, instead of giving them the reward of having understood part of what they're trying to understand.

  • is a pretty neat extension. I also have UntrackMe on my phone for similar purposes.

  • Finally switched from a Broadcom based WiFi card to an Intel one. So much sudden stability.

  • @e_mydata I'm seeing eOS 0.11 (from the 28th of August) as update to my Fairphone 3 on 0.10. I assume that update is Android 10. However the update fails to apply.

  • @glow I agree about the fonts part, but font awesome also does SVG based icons and I don't think their icons are inherently bad, it's just that we should avoid icon fonts (see also for the complete argument made 5 years ago already...)

  • @glow we're still doing full versions? I thought there are just loose sets of things that engines implement. ("Living standards")

  • The vikunja Todoist migration ran through and worked almost perfectly. I had to manually clean up some task parent-child relationships and transfer over my repeat rules. But apart from that I'm very happy with vikunja. Big thanks to the maintainer, who was very responsive in the matrix room of the project.

  • This weekend:
    - I moved Synapse over to my NAS and started using Element web via Nextcloud app
    - I set up auto-invite-matrix-bot for accounts I have on other matrix homeservers
    - I switched to Wallabag from Pocket
    - I configured dnscrypt-proxy so everything gets to use better DNS from inside my network
    - I started configuring Vikunja to take over from Todoist and my shopping list, however the Todoist migration is currently broken with my Todoist data, so it's on hold for a bit.


  • @MagneFire are there any instructions on how to install/use it?
