In-reply-to » Vote/opinion: which is the preferred or correct render of block quotes - yarnd or the yarn app? Media Media

@darch@neotxt.dk I guess preferred is different than ‘correct’.

My preference is this one:

> Text 1

> I'd expect this quote to be separated
> And for this case
> I'd expect these blocks to be together

But since I moved from Markdown to Gemtext, I always forget how it works.
That said, I don’t generally like splitting the blocks as those are connected on the same idea.

I found a Foosball with a digital scoreboard.

In college I wanted to make one of these with electronics and PICs, but it was a bit expensive as a student, so never I finished that.
Later I made one with a tablet and an online ranking system.

I wanted to build one for table tennis, inspired by one I say online which recognizes a RFID chip in your racket 🏓

In-reply-to » I've started playing with Go today, just understood the basics and still a bit confused about the module and goroutine parts.

@justamoment I haven’t touched the goroutines yet (I played with these like 10 years ago), but I haven’t found a case where I need these.

About the modules, those were very non-intuitive to me, coming from Python, C#, and JS. I think the official documentation from Go is not clear enough and has no simple examples…
After a few searches, I reached Stack Overflow and blogs with tips for Modules and subdirectories. Now, I can replicate an MVC model with templates.

This project helped a lot: https://github.com/J7mbo/go-subdirectories-with-modules

In-reply-to » I'm making some training videos, and I'm feeling the pain of taking care of every detail 😅

@justamoment Well, those are for a private university in México, so won’t be publicly available.

And they told me that the format is gonna be different from what I recorded previously, so next week I’ll have to make new shots. 😅

In fact, I don’t have videos in English, so I guess I’ll have to practice recording a few 🤔

In-reply-to » I'm working on this PoC to vote on the best time for an international call, showing the multiple timeslots in your local time, and getting numbers on preferences among people. The UI could be vastly improved, but this is what I have so far... I want to see it in action since it's very different to choose between 1, 2, or even 7 days (24 hours each). If you want to help to test it and give some comments send me a reply!

@darch@neotxt.dk I agree! Doodle.com is a great inspiration. Instead of Emojis, using standard symbols like (✓) or , with the standard traffic light colors, could be a better idea.
Thanks for the feedback!

I’m making some training videos, and I’m feeling the pain of taking care of every detail 😅

Having the right illumination, sound, background, camera…
I hope the outcome is great 😃

At least I’m learning a lot on the topic…😁

In-reply-to » Digital Books wear out faster than Physical Books

@marado@tilde.pt Well, I can’t agree on that one. It’s a ‘maybe’ since is hard to measure, but IMO we can’t say Zero evidence. There are some numbers showing that artificial scarcity has some impact on sales, and obviously, DRM devs want to sell their services, although they are biased. (I’m playing devil’s advocate here, making both positions to collide to reach a useful compromise)

My position is that DRM helps to prevent piracy among mainstream users, which would decide on renting Apple Music or Spotify vs using hipster alternatives. We as power users will find the best ratio between convenience and control.

I assume you’ve read this one: https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Information_Doesn%27t_Want_to_Be_Free
I like it as my reference on the topic. Doctorow as a creator has skin in the game, so he knows about it and is a good influence on me as a creator as well.

In-reply-to » Mercedes Locks Faster Acceleration Behind a $1,200 Annual Paywall Mercedes is the latest manufacturer to lock auto features behind a subscription fee, with an upcoming "Acceleration Increase" add-on that lets drivers pay to access motor performance their vehicle is already capable of. From a report: The $1,200 yearly subscription improves performance by boosting output from the motors by 20-24 percent, increasi ... ⌘ Read more

@marado yeah, obviously monetary interests shape the products availability and regulations are useful for control those interests. (Although my anarchist friends are not that happy of fighting companies with state power, but that’s another convo)

Recently I watched this video on Apple not replacing Lightning with USB-C, being the main reason licencing fees. And that only changes until EU requires it by law.

I worked for a few industries putting walls on the ecosystem, by design, and I think lack of competence makes it even harder. Mainly for B2C.
