  • @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?

  • @AsteroidOS I just noticed that the hour hand on the first analog watchface (the one with date and time under it) doesn't move between the hour ticks. Is this something I can toggle simewhere, is it watchface specific or not yet available (as in, I should file an issue on Github)

  • I think is probably the silliest browser extension I've ever built. It's also the lowest maintenance.

  • @funkwhale I'll happily open gitlab issues if that's desired.

    Kinda unrelated, I thought I read somewhere that the Podcasts library in subsonic apps (ultrasonic) should show me channels from funkwhale? For me it just errors. I can also find podcasts by search, but they contain no tracks. Only searching for individual episodes works. (Yes, I have ID3 based browsing enabled)

  • @funkwhale not sure what you mean with that, isn't that what I've done?

  • Finally have @AsteroidOS working reliably on my G Watch R. Just took a new battery and a bit if luck in the flashing lottery.

  • @funkwhale also, coukd I propose a "listened" indicator on podcast episodes based in listening history, so I don't have to remember that myself?

  • @funkwhale I've been transferring my playlists over to funkwhale and found it a bit annoying that I can't directly add entire albums to playlists. I'm aware of the add to queue and then transfer to playlist workaround, but that doesn't really work if you want to listen to music while building independent playlists...
