Different person, but I started using vertical tabs a few weeks ago and gave both extensions a try for a few days.

I’m using Sideberry now. It seems more polished to me with lots more features. I particularly like how well it integrates with Firefox containers and that you can create tab groups, which are essentially tabs for tabs.

If you want to skip ahead, there are also a few ways to get Home Assistant running that don’t need any level of Linux competency:

  • They sell their own devices that are more or less plug & play.
  • Installing Home Assistant OS on a Raspberry Pi is just flashing the image onto an SD card.
  • Installing Home Assistant OS onto a dedicated device involves shortly booting into Linux from USB to flash Home Assistant OS onto the internal disk.

If you don’t want to run Home Assistant OS, and instead want to run Home Assistant as one of several applications running on a Server, that’s when you need to start getting comfortable administrating a Linux server.

They’ve basically perfected keeping the community mostly happy by toeing the line between putting out solid base games and putting out greedy DLC.

What we’re now seeing is what happens when you don’t immediately change course after you skimp on making a good base game.

Only sort of related, but it’s kind of insane how many different phones Samsung releases. Checking GSMArena, they’ve apparently released an average of two phones per month over the last year.

Seems a bit overkill to me.

Custom monitor wall mount (lemm.ee)

This is a custom wall mount for my 2nd screen Dell P2417H (simmilar models with same stand will fit as well). It’s a 24" monitor with pivot stand (can adjust up/down, portrait/landscape and tilt), but it doesnt suppport vesa mount (edit: this is wrong, it does support vesa, but then cant use pivot mechanism). I wanted it on...

Pivoting+tilting+swivelling VESA wall mounts are also a thing, so you wouldn’t have needed to choose the display based on its stand

I personally wouldn’t have risked my monitor on being able to design a part that is able to last just to save the few bucks a mount costs. So props to you, I guess.

Even the PC manufacturers selling “gaming” PCs using integrated graphics aren’t usually this brazen about it.

Yup, at the very minimum let me continue to play TFT. You can’t really cheat there, and if you could, that’s more likely due to an underlying gamplay/UX problem.

I have a Onyx Boox Nova C that has pretty much the same technology (Kaleido Plus) and would say that the color display is mostly just a neat gimmick that comes with some tradeoffs. Compared to a pure monochrome E-Ink display the contrast is much worse and colors don’t really pop either. You basically always need at least a bit off background lighting to be able to read.

I’d recommend these types of display only if being able to read without background lighting isn’t a must and even then only for stuff that’s better with color, like notes, technical books or the occasional colored page in a book/manga. If you want to read something reliant on stunning colorful artwork like graphic novels I’d stay away.

As long as that applies to all browsers equally. I don’t know the current state of things but if I remember correctly, Firefox already circumvented the earlier default protection method, because Microsoft made it so that their own Edge browser didn’t require those extra steps that were forced upon all other browsers.

Same. Not being able to move the taskbar, alongside all the other downgrades to it and the start menu is what got me to check out Linux as a desktop OS for real, and not just out of curiosity. So far, I don’t see going back.

And I was even one of the few dozen people who loved Win8. At least there the points that got criticized were due to sweeping and bold changes. Win11 on the other hand feels like the same as 10 but with arbitrary features removed in the core part of the OS.

Imagine a “Choose your Browser”-style pop-up, but for your OS on first boot. I’d really love to see it, partially mostly for the amount of pure chaos it would cause.

AFAIK MusicBee isn’t open source, just Freeware. Which is fair enough if the dev doesn’t want to, but also a bit frustrating personally, as people could’ve improved Linux support considerably if it was.

Not completely though. A while ago I’ve had a wave of these comments on a 3 year old post of mine. They got deleted after I’ve reported them at least, though I don’t know if that action was done by a mod of the subreddit or site-wide admin.

I was guessing that this was going to be the next big Square Enix release after FF7 Rebirth and FFXIV Dawntrail with a release some time in the latter half of the year, but it looks like the project is more troubled than I assumed.

Not to mention that most sites will put their main content into a container with a limited width anyway, since overly long lines are awful to read. So unless you’re using the browser side-by-side with other content on a low-res monitor it’s a net benefit. And even if it’s not I usually find the extra vertical space to be worth more, as you said.

Personally, these services are all a bit sketchy anyway. Mostly because they advertise themselves as the magic bullet to remove all your unwanted personal data from the internet, but ignores that this removal relies on the cooperation of the third parties in possession of your data. Most notably, this won’t work if your data has been exposed in a data breach.

To me it very much feels like VPN ads. Technically a working product, but advertised in a very dishonest way.

This particular issue was caused by a breaking change in Plasma 6 and bad handling in a specific global theme.

The general security concerns that were being brought to light however apply to all versions.

Anyone else addicted to Balatro right now? (www.playbalatro.com)

I’m not usually a huge fan of rogue-likes, but I’ve enjoyed a few, like Hades. I bought Balatro last week and have been absolutely smashing it ever since then. I love the way the game works, each run being so different even within the same framework, and the feeling when your build starts to go off is so incredibly...

I just got the (first) completionist achievement after 60 hours plus however many I spent on the demo. I might try a few of the challenges and try to win with the final stake at least once, but after that I think I’m done.

It’s an absolutely amazing game and has secured its place in my deck building hall of fame beside Slay the Spire and Wildfrost.

I’ve been really looking forward to this one since watching the first short clips. Also helps that Pseudoregalia really got me into the mood for some more Metroidvanias recently.

nekusoul,
@nekusoul@lemmy.nekusoul.de avatar

Most games are great because they provide something unique or are polished to perfection, so it’s wild that they’ve made something that manages to be both their first attempt. Really looking forward to whatever they decide to do next.

Good idea. If we do this and also add some sort of positive label on devices that work locally and are interoperable it might start a positive feedback loop: More people become aware of the issue or simply want the device with the better label when choosing in a store, leading to more manufacturers producing more devices that aren’t cloud-dependent.

Right now I often see the opposite happening: Manufacturers who don’t even put on their packaging that their system is really just Zigbee under the hood for example.

Or you might want to use G-Sync or other forms of VRR on a multimonitor setup, which you can’t do under X11 and is broken on Wayland.

nekusoul,
@nekusoul@lemmy.nekusoul.de avatar

I think the first one can be circumvented by just using a DP->HDMI adapter. But yeah, those other points are why I’m a bit hesitant about swapping to AMD myself.

nekusoul,
@nekusoul@lemmy.nekusoul.de avatar

I wish that were the case. It’s obviously not a thing at all in Gnome (yet), but from my experience and what others are reporting, VRR is also pretty broken on KDE Wayland for NVIDIA GPUs. It works fine 90% of the time, but at certain loads it starts rendering frames out of order. As far as I can gather this won’t change until there’s proper esync support across the whole render chain for NVIDIA, starting with the drivers.

nekusoul,
@nekusoul@lemmy.nekusoul.de avatar

Huh, when I first checked out Hyprland under 535 drivers, it was barely working under Wayland, whereas Gnome and KDE worked at least decently well. Might have to check it out again now that some time has passed, although I still hope that the next beta driver will finally fix most things.
