Pinned toot

I have a love_hate relationship with underscores

I use Firefox Nightly on Android because it's the only one in Google Play with about:config enabled, which allows me to block image loading and save mobile data... I wish there were a proper toggle for this in the UI

I like playing around with the but I'm still too cheap to buy an extra SIM for it ... Can I use KDE Connect to route texts from one phone to another phone through my laptop? 😛

I see a new library but it supports 2.6 so ... being available for such an old version in 2021 implies that it was made for special circumstances and shouldn't be used outside of those, even if it does support the newest versions

Blazes in Minecraft are too frickin scary for me 🤐 Since they made it so blaze powder is needed to brew potions, I've been rationing all the potions I brewed in earlier versions.

I made a custom modpack for Minecraft Java Edition with 56 mods in it. The early game has a ton of gardening and exploration (Roguelike Dungeons, Harvestcraft), lategame there is Immersive Engineering and Twilight Forest. Plus there are abandoned cities to make a base from. I'm really enjoying it. Making your own modpack is super easy and you get a custom tailored experience for your playstyle :D

Tried modded Java Minecraft for the first time in years last night... Took me a while because I had to install Java 8 (Ubuntu comes with 11 now) and symlink .minecraft to the Minecraft flatpak's directory in .var

Next to my flowerbed is some dandelions and ground ivy which are flowering right now, and the nice combination of purple and yellow reminds me of all the wildflowers in Pokémon games. I used to think those were exaggerated but since last year I gained a new appreciation of "weeds" and I notice all the time now 😊 There are beautiful flowers all over the place 🌞🌼

I want to import my 200ish YouTube subscriptions into NewPipe, but Google Takeout only works on Google accounts. I don't think there's any way to export my data from a traditional YouTube account. Google reeeally screwed up YouTube when they changed the accounts system 10 times :blobsadleft:

GPUs were invented so we could have wobbly windows (this two year old video I posted is still relevant youtube.com/watch?v=2lco6FP-K3)

Some social media services have obscure touch gestures, unlabelled icons, and other forms of bad UI that scare away people who won't put in the effort to "fit in". Originally this probably wasn't on purpose, but I think over time it's becoming a deliberate strategy

Flask now has a decorator for POST-only routes. Everyone borrowed the Flask API so now they're borrowing something back 😛 github.com/pallets/flask/pull/

I've seen the #:~: in URLs lately! It exists!!

tassaron! :tassmuffin: boosted

Apparently very few URLs use :~: so we might get crying-face-delimited text selection via URLs soon github.com/WICG/scroll-to-text

Loopdeloop Galaxy is a bunch of flowing water floating in a void which is creepy if you put yourself in Mario's shoes. The happy music doesn't help 🔪😨

Gnome 40 showing up in KDE Discover because I have both desktops installed for some reason :blobcatcoffee:

Snow melted from last year's garden and we found new sprouts of oregano and parsley growing beneath 🌱 I love plants. This year we have 4 grow racks in our 'plant nursery' (3 shown in the photo) and we've quadrupled our growing space. My partner is starting a farm and it's gonna be a great year 👍

The screenshot function officially moving to the volume key in Android 11 makes screenshots extraordinarily difficult to take. The button must be pressed with very precise timing to avoid opening the volume menu instead. It's really sad tbh. Something as easy to fix as screenshots should not be a killer flaw in your software🤦‍♀️

Just learned about /proc/sys/kernel/random/uuid recently and it's pretty handy
