For me it’s certain settings such as System dark/light mode and Open links in default browser that turn themselves off occasionally following an update.

Very good. I was going for The Woman with Half Her Leg Missing but Footloose is fantastic. I salute you.

Dogs are 1 to 3 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than adult humans not 10. A temperature above 104°F needs urgent veterinary help.

Note that human babies and young children are also warmer than adults by about a degree.

You don’t feel much difference because they aren’t ten degrees hotter. OP is mistaken.

Is it “There’s too many legs and arms”?

Really wish people would learn how to use AI.

Yeah, and some have screens on the front and back of the monitors. And those keyboards have hundreds of keys.

There’s AI and then there’s “Oh my God, one of them has a foot pointing backwards”

yes, there’s lots wrong with picture.

The first record I chose was Ma Na Ma Na by the Muppets. The first record bought with my own money was Never for Ever by Kate Bush

Also, old.

Nothing really changed. Some people who would have taken a ferry changed to the tunnel. But flights became cheaper so the number of people using ferries dropped anyway.

Had you been able to drive straight through then it would have had a bigger effect.

There is more than one Dev (check GitHub) but no action has taken place since last year.

Are there any apps being developed for Sublinks?

FelipeFelop,
@FelipeFelop@discuss.online avatar

I’m confused now, the post above says that there will be initial compatibility but after that (presumably as sublinks evolves) Lemmy apps will have to display as best they can.

FelipeFelop,
@FelipeFelop@discuss.online avatar

That was my reason for asking about sublinks apps.

I know that devs like web interfaces but the truth is you need apps if anything social is going to become established.

It’s a sad fact in the fediverse that routinely apps or even front end GUI aren’t compatible. There’s only so many times this can happen (or instances shut down or not be maintained) before it all becomes a bit much.

So I think relying on Lemmy apps is a mistake.

FelipeFelop,
@FelipeFelop@discuss.online avatar

Yes, my point is that an App or apps should be part of the design from the outset (see Pixelfed) Good planning rather than chance and potentially messing / confusing people.

Aren’t there problems with authentication that cause security concerns when using a PWA?

Which is why the native apps are preferred for Voyager.

You guys should check out the reddit clone I've been working on (matrix.gvid.tv)

It’s sort of a different concept. Posts and users also have position in addition to age and score. The sorting algorithm gives you complete control over how much to weight each one. It’s like if new and hot existed on a continuous spectrum. It’s sort of like what Aaron Swartz initially wanted to do with Reddit where what...

That’s not right Matrix was never going to become Element.

As none of the developers had done anything since August, I believe there was an attempt by someone else back in November to get it working /fork Liftoff! but the code was not in a good state and because of the way it works would be very difficult.

Is it normal to forget your own age?

I’m still in my 20s, but as of a few years ago I started forgetting what’s my exact age. I always have to stop and recalculate it each time someone asks me. I get asked fairly infrequently, but when I do it’s a bit weird/embarrassing that I have to say “wait, let me calculate”. (I know when I was born, of course.)...

FelipeFelop,
@FelipeFelop@discuss.online avatar

Not unusual at all. Everyone I know does this. Nothing wrong with you it’s just that age (and birthdays) becomes less important. Also once past a certain age you actively want to forget that you’re old, so you need to consciously think about it.

But don’t worry, once you get into your 80s it becomes a badge of honour and the older you get the more you’ll think about it.

Roku TV bricked until agreeing to new terms of service

See title - very frustrating. There is no way to continue to use the TV without agreeing to the terms. I couldn’t use different inputs, or even go to settings from the home screen and disconnect from the internet to disable their services. If I don’t agree to their terms, then I don’t get access to their new products. That...

Be careful with this as monitors are usually a different aspect ratio to a TV so a you may get a distorted/cropped picture or black bars (depending what you connect to it) which will be noticeable at larger sizes.

I don’t remember the last time I used a phone book. There have been better ways to get a number for a long time.

Think it must be at least 30years ago.

I think it’s only if you use a WebKit based browser ?

FelipeFelop,
@FelipeFelop@discuss.online avatar

You’ve misunderstood. You’ll only be able to add a PWA to the Home Screen if it uses WebKit.

If they haven’t visited us how will they know what the planet is called and how to spell it?

FelipeFelop,
@FelipeFelop@discuss.online avatar

That’s our name for it. If there is a planet or planets circling Kepler 22 they won’t call it Kepler 22.

Similarly any aliens won’t call Earth by that name. For example, Klingons might have called Earth yoSpu’bogh QongDaq until they made contact.

So aliens wouldn’t type Earth into sat nav but whatever they call it. Now that’s a showerthought !
