Can we enjoy some beautiful photos on Steptalks? We can talk about photography.
Can someone kill rotative doors? I just got hurt by one. My hand hurts, but it could have been my face.
I got a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar at work. I configured Touch Bar to display only permanent keys: play/pause, input sources, brightness, keyboard backlight, volume controls, lock, search, notification center, in this order. It works a little better than 2013 MacBook Pro I use at home.
Did you see they discontinued the 12 inches MacBook? Not many people will miss it probably... They also pushed the touch bar on all models now, so no more hardware function keys. Not sure if it's a good thing. I'm still reluctant to by a current gen. Too much problems. Or I should find a 2015 retina model somewhere. For now I run MX-Linux on an old Toshiba Centrino laptop. Speaking of touch bar, found this: pock.dev It displays your dock on the touch bar... May be in
I'm hosting a poll on dribbble.com/shots... but you can answer here too. I like the idea of Steptalks as a play on small talks and describes the idea behind the social network very well too.
I still prefer Subcafe, the "cafe" part fits well with chilling around on the site :) But Steptalks sounds nice, better than Subtalks for that matter, I think...
I feel like Steptalks is a harder to market name. I think it's a little weird, or something geared towards the elderly.
I got dubfi.com for a brand new social network. Crazy if don't try again, crazy if I do. But you heard about it here first. subfi.com and pubfi.com were taken. Dub-Fi joins Hi-Fi, Wi-Fi and stands for Dub Fidelity.
I think dubfi is a great name, much better for a social network than subfi or pubfi. Good luck!
What's the theme? Music? Foreign language movies with audio dubs?
workhuman.com is so badly named. Work humans? Work slaves?
Using SQLite on lucianmarin.com is faster than using JSON, 43ms vs 56ms for the same request. Hmm... I have to make the switch someday.
I'm in love with SQLite, and I'm surprised so many django devs say it doesn't scale. At some point I'd like to look at the django ORM and understand why.
One week with NoScript in Firefox and now I can't live without NoScript. I even installed JS Blocker in Safari, but it's hard to use. In NoScript if I trust a domain and that's it, everything works.
tells me there were 21 active people in the past 3 weeks. That's impressive. I'm glad people still login on the site.
I can't say enough about how much I love the concept and execution of your social network. Anything we can do to assist in generating more activity?
news.sub.cafe got a compact mode. 30 top articles or 30 recent articles at once. The new score is the average of shares, reactions and comments on Facebook.
The availability status is back. It updates once per day instead of every request so it won't affect the site performance. Green = seen in last 3 days. Yellow = seen in last 15 days. Gray = more than 15 days. Do you have any suggestions?
Maybe display the bottom half of the indicator in blue (or any other color you prefer) when the user wrote something during the last 3 days... But it's nice to have that back as it is. Would be also nice to have the edit post function back while it's still not read...
Redone news.sub.cafe with the newest version of Facebook API.
Passengers should have the right to know the airplane model and history as well as the resumes of the pilots before they board a flight.
I never considered this. What sparked this idea?
Android Pie has a feature to restrict battery usage of apps. I added them all. 80 installed apps and 120 system apps. Now it runs like an iPhone. Alarms don't fire, so Clock is the only app I didn't restricted.
I have an expensive flagship-level phone (Razer, 1st gen) that in less than one year, stopped being updated. Pie would be nice. Until then, I'll just wait for the Librem 5 - a phone that will get constant updates as I'll be able to install just about any Linux distro I want on it (but I'll probably stick with the stock PureOS). Maybe I'll just go to no phone at all, my sanity would probably thank me for that.
I can't believe the smallest smartphone on the market is the newly released Samsung Galaxy S10e at 142.2 x 69.9 x 7.9 mm or Google Pixel 3 at 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9 mm. I have no idea what's going on with Sony. Where's the new Compact?
I've no idea either. It's like they don't know what to do anymore to try to keep their stagnant smartphone market share... Which is understandable. I would be surprised if the 21:9 Sony mobile screens will work with consumers. I don't like it. Same thing with full screens, then notches, then punch-holes, then what ? Back to full screens ? At last. And flagships are more and more expansive as well. Even if today mid-ranges are past flagships... Now foldable phones. That cost a
What should I work on next? A search engine called Findcafe, a native Android app for Newscafe, redesigning Sub with photos support or any other idea you might have.
Findcafe sounds interesting - what do you plan to achieve ?
Photo support would be nice. Like you did before, limit it to one image per day per user. Maximum three maybe... Problem is to have constant quality posts and probably copyright issues as well. Would be nice to have that back anyway.
I'd love to see a search engine that could categorize sites. E.g. a filter to remove redundant blog spam, restrict to university sites, or corporate sites that fully identify a business, etc.
I would be interested to see user activity visualizations for Subreply
