The "Catch up on this thread" notifications on #Threads are pretty annoying.

It seems trying to notify you a post from a following that you missed, buried under the chronological Following timeline but not going to be resurfaced by the algorithm in the 'For You' timeline 🤔

I follow too many front-end folks here. Having fomo.

Saw this, translated from another language:
"After using phanpy, the frequency of my blood pressure rise has been greatly reduced."

oh lol wow 😂🤣

I'm exploring a new theme for @IceCubesApp, glow in the dark. Very low opacity colors. It's amazing when reading in a dark room.

is anyone actively working on Pinafore / Semaphore? its quite good actually but it could really use some feature parity with Phanpy and Toot! to get it working to do cross instance remote actions

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@liaizon @enafore is probably the more active fork.

I should be able to follow users from my Mastodon account. You can't convince me to make yet another account in a yet another silo, but I'd love to see and share more art in my home feed. Anyone have a connection to their team? Would love to chat about the .

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@Gargron from what I researched, their discord is probably the best place to contact them now.

@liaizon got a video/screen recording? 🤔

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@liaizon you can opt for the non-techie way, use your phone to video record the screen 🫣

Saw the news about artists on IG flocking to Cara. Decided to try it out and saw this Home Feed settings that allow users to customize percentage of posts based on different categories to show up on the home feed.

Not sure how the percentage adds up tho'. Restarting the app resets the percentage values, perhaps buggy now due to too much traffic (went up 300K users).

Screenshot of a "Home Feed Settings" menu with options to adjust the feed composition: "People You Follow" (90%), "Your Follow's Network" (10%), "Cara Site-wide" (10%). A numeric keypad is displayed at the bottom.

  2. Assist for footnote links (w/ superscript numbers)
  3. Multiple posts as a thread

@ayo might as well just support markdown right 😆

So I run Windows, currently version 11. Do I need to do something to avoid Recall?

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@sarajw from what I read, it's only available on "Copilot+ branded PC".

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@sarajw ah got it. I was thinking like it needs some special hardware to run everything on-device, but I guess there's still a chance to override that and force-enable it.

I'm running Win11 on virtual machine, so been waiting for it to appear (besides all the fancy ads in the Start menu) 🫠

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@sarajw oh interesting, I had to read a bunch of blog posts on how to remove all the ads 😅

Wow just realised that Threads allow pinning a specific thread (a post with replies) on its multi-column UI. Huh, really?

@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

Interesting, there's experimental local alt text generation in Firefox Nightly https://hacks.mozilla.org/2024/05/experimenting-with-local-alt-text-generation-in-firefox-nightly/

In short: DistilGPT-2 model in Transformers.js, trained on updated Flickr30k dataset with supervised learning.

The copy used is also interesting: "Alt text (alternative text) helps when people can't see the image or when it doesn't load."

Curious to know, how many columns do you set up on apps/clients that allow multi-columns? (Mastodon advanced web interface, Ivory macOS, Mona macOS, @sengi_app , @statuzer , @mastodeck , , Phanpy )

If I may bother @cheeaun about @phanpy again - you know I love it :)

Is there a hint as to how the post/reply language thing works?

To me it seems it's set by default by the OP for the whole thread, and if it's a German OP their posts are set to German whether they are typing German or English or other languages. This is fine - but my replies to them are automatically marked as German too.

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@sarajw yeah, it follows the language set by the post you're replying to. This behaviour is copied from Mastodon, though I've been thinking of looking into it, if it actually makes sense for most people or we could have better heuristics 🤔

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@sarajw hmm, this is a tough one.

Some folks forgot to change their language when replying in a different language. Some is due to their client not surfacing the language prominently enough. Phanpy kinda "expose" these mistakes by showing the 'Translate from [language]" button. The problem escalates further if the whole nested replies are filled with wrongly tagged (mixed?) languages. The authors could've gone back & edit their posts, change to the correct language if their clients expose them.

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@sarajw yeah, should be from there.

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@kizu @sarajw Phanpy actually does this unobtrusive way, but only if the language set is different than the one in previous composing session.

Subtle blue border hint.

@cheeaun When minimising the compose window, would it be possible to fade out the background first before the shrink animation? It's quite jarring on dark mode, with the entire background shrinking.

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@tripplehelix is it possible to share a screen recording?

sarajw, to random
@sarajw@front-end.social avatar

Hm. Can I link to a search, or the search results, in vanilla Mastodon?

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@sarajw don’t think so, there’s an issue for this https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/29991

Also, some instances’ search requires login.

cheeaun,
@cheeaun@mastodon.social avatar

@sarajw it requires login 🫣 - defaults to mastodon.social instance

This was done some time ago https://mastodon.social/@cheeaun/111629447263982447
