🏒 Lucian Marin Firefox brand is weak, it's associated with IE era and it's dropping market share like crazy. Mozilla brand got a nice refresh, it's trusted, it's associated with privacy and they got new good products that need to carry Mozilla brand. It should be Mozilla Suite for a new internet age: Mozilla Browser, Mozilla VPN, Mozilla Monitor and so on. This way the browser will be their main product, it will have internal focus and probably gain back the market share.
🦇 Arr Since 50 % of users don't know what a browser is, let's call it Mozilla Internet. The last rename of Firefox is now Firefox "Quantum" was cited on tech pages a lot, though.
🏒 Lucian Marin I only used homebrew. It has everything I need.
🦇 Arr on my m1 mac mini, `port` had a difficult installation. But the eponymous timer app from port is way better and more simplistic then the shareware (!) from brew
🏒 Lucian Marin Where is Edge OS, Microsoft? Windows 11 is the new IE 11. Chrome OS is the future for enterprise and casual users.
🦇 Arr Well, Windows RT (especially on ARM) was kind of IE11-OS, with a very limited app selection.
👨‍💻 Matthieu V. Just came along it make me want to structure my notes/ideas but I don't really know where and how to start... Maybe it would be a great software to start doing some daily journaling
🦇 Arr Not F/LOSS, tough?
👨‍💻 Matthieu V. How would you build an home server these days ? For self hosting purposes (Nextcloud, Photoprism, Plex and various apps like that) with maybe with around 8Gb to be futureproff
🦇 Arr I would overengineer it ridiciously and farm Chia, for now ;) Can serve as a file dump afterwards anyway
🏒 Lucian Marin Emoji can be converted to plain text then back to emoji. See for all :fire: shortcodes.
🦇 Arr :thumbsup: :thumbs_up: (missing, though. Doh!) ;)
☝ Jean-David Moisan I composed this piano music yesterday:
🦇 Arr :thumbs_up: :musical_keyboard: hm no emoji support? :(
☝ Jean-David Moisan I'm streaming some programming on Twitch
🦇 Arr :thumbs_up: Damn, missed it. Gamer-style setup, I see.
🏒 Lucian Marin SSL certificates for and updated themselves on the first day of 2021. certbot renew --renew-hook "systemctl reload nginx" really works with sudo crontab -e.
🦇 Arr `sudo crontab -e` -> Why the elevated priviliege? Should the certbot not run as a non-admin user for better security?
🦇 Arr CCC meeting will be remote this year:
🦇 Arr Happy Sinterklaas | Kleeschen | Nikolaus | Papa Noel, to all it may concern
Chetan Vashisht Couldn't agree more, we really don't need more speed. I'd happy with better customisation options.
🦇 Arr We need more speed. My iPhone SE 2020 scrolls more smoothly then my Intel Xeon, Nvidia 1080. Single core performance is only 10% better in the smartphone, but somehow the mobile system feels faster. A 15+ years old Mac with OS 9 is faster when typing input than an Intel MacBook Air with OS X was shown in recent benchmarks. "UI always scales to make any CPU underpowered" is a postulated law of computer engineering. Some people buying a MS Surface (7th gen) report bad perf, too
Mikael If care about weight, have you considered font-family:sans-serif? It's even lighter at 0 KB. ;)
🦇 Arr Doesn't that cause concrete pixel width to fluctuate based on the auto-selected font? Could thereby cause hard to spot layout errors.
🦇 Arr If today were 1973 and you wanted to know when you could write async code, or stop writing code at all:
🏀 Pr interesting, do you think the iphone 12 won't have touchID? I think the ipad air having touch ID means the new iphone will too.
🦇 Arr My work phone has android and a fingerprint sensor in the screen. Any old iPhones unlocks faster, though. I would hope for Apple's screen reader to be fast and reliable, no matter when it arrives. Often, new Apple products are at first worse than old ones.
🦇 Arr A question for the swarm of cool people: As my favorite hobby to do-while-doing-other-things is listening to podcasts (mostly in german, though) -- Which podcasts to you find interesting or useful? To me, The Anthropocene Reviewed was mildly interesting.
😃 Javier I just finished the podcast: "Nice White People". The history of segregation in a public school in Brooklyn NY USA. I find it fascinating. Is from the creators of the Podcast Serial. Which is also fascinating.
✨ Jacoby The Unmade Podcast and The Adventure Zone keep me very happy.
