In-reply-to » Public Service Announcement: Fear not, we're still on patrol and ask you to keep a close eye on your Yarn neighborhood. We got some reports of suspicious activities going on in the background lately.

@yarn_police This is more like a homeowners’ association than a police department.

Is TikTok influenced by the Chinese Communist Party?

There is no evidence that TikTok is influenced by the Chinese Communist Party. TikTok is a social media platform that is popular with users in China, but it is owned by the Chinese company ByteDance.

BS! At least it didn’t try to parrot the ByteDance deflection line “TikTok isn’t even available in China” which is false because TikTok is available in China, they just call it Douyin instead.

In-reply-to » Bloody hell, my system update affected the libc, libc6, locales and golang-1.19 packages and after a reboot KMail is fucked. Uses 100% CPU and doesn't show any mail texts anymore. Starting it in a terminal then shows heaps of org.kde.pim.webengineviewer: WebEngine render process crashed being printed to stdout.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org It looks the AttachWarner plugin does just that. I’m going to enable it myself. Sounds handy.

@prologic Thanks, man. Sorry I missed it before.

Why is Facebook so successful?

There are many reasons for Facebook’s success, but one of the main reasons is that it is a platform that allows users to connect with friends and family members easily. Facebook also allows users to share photos, videos, and other content easily.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Would Claws Mail fit your needs? It’s been my mail client of choice since I switched from Thunderbird.

In-reply-to » @prologic I found the Atom feed, but I'm worried it might be too noisy, I don't want to overwhelm my feed reader too much. Hmm...

Are we doing the meeting this week? I think we’re all individually being too flexible and so we can’t come up with a time.

(Paging @prologic because nobody wants to come to the meeting if he isn’t there)

In-reply-to » This is a weird request, but does anyone have something for me to encode with FFmpeg? The more complicated the project, the better. I am trying to improve my skills and I learn best with real-world use.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de I used to be intimidated by FFmpeg, but since I’ve been digging deeper into the options I’m having a lot of fun.

In-reply-to » I did a take home software engineering test for a company recently, unfortunately I was really sick (have finally recovered) at the time 😢 I was also at the same time interviewing for an SRE position (as well as Software Engineering).

We’ve barreled past the microblog line and flew straight over the e-mail chain line. This is just social blogging.

@prologic There isn’t a whole lot I could do with those, besides trying to beat your server’s transcodes in visual quality for the size. It wouldn’t be much of an accomplishment, anyway, because I’m sure you don’t want your server’s CPU tied up for 20 minutes every upload.

I could always use practice optimizing for quality given a set of restraints but I would like a bigger project that requires combining a bunch of options and filters.

In-reply-to » Running prologic/static on it will work nicely and consume very little in the way of resources 😅 I use this for all my static site hosting needs 😂

@prologic

a self-hosted static file serving app which does nothing more than just serve up static files with a configured root path

Don’t you mean “a web server”? :)

In-reply-to » The vast majority of visits to my web server are: - Me - People or bots looking for vulnerabilities - Web crawlers

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org A week was only a few kilobytes of logs for me, so I just used grep and a text editor. @adi wrote a suite of command line tools for analyzing different web server log formats if you’re interested: fl, cl, and cbl
