shadshack,

Tracker Control on Android works well for system-wide tracker and ad blocking, and you can configure custom blocking rules per-app. Works without root by using a VPN profile (but no data leaves your device via the VPN, it just routes the traffic through this app).

shadshack,

Another place that’s got good deals is nationalofficeinteriors.com . Learned about this place at an old job. They sell used stuff that’s pretty much new but has like one little stain or scuff on it or something, so places making bulk purchases refuse it. Just doing a search for the Steelcase Leap (which I also highly recommend), they’ve got a bunch for like 50-70% off full price right now.

shadshack,

I think they don’t take your phone, just scan it. I don’t know how it works with this, but I have a trial for my state’s digital ID app (the app works but isn’t fully implemented as a complete replacement for physical IDs yet), and it has two modes I can put it in which generates a QR code on the screen with my data. One mode for police to scan at traffic stops which has my driver’s license info, and one just called “age verification” which can be presented when buying alcohol which just verifies that I’m over 21. I like the privacy of the second mode, since there’s no reason a liquor store needs to be able to see my home address.

shadshack,

A great puzzle game with terminals often found in woods or other outdoors locations. Like so:

It's never been a better time to switch to Firefox on Android (www.androidpolice.com)

The final push to start using Firefox over Chrome on Android might finally be thanks to the enormous selection of add-ons (Firefox’s version of extensions) coming out next month. Chrome doesn’t offer native support for extensions in its mobile app. Also, better security.

shadshack,

I thought the same, but it only took me like 2 days to get used to it.

shadshack,

You guys use more than just the +30 button? Weird.

“Are you sure you don’t want to lower your standards? You’re still single…”

shadshack,

Haven’t seen anyone mention it in here yet, but this is exactly why I use Aurora Store to search for and download apps instead of the Play Store. It still installs things so the Play Store can update it automatically if you want, but you don’t have to deal with any ads.

shadshack,

If they’re using a service to send the emails, like SendGrid or Mailchimp or something, that Unsubscribe survey is actually hosted by the email sending provider, and the more people that mark the email as spam or use the “I never signed up for this” option or similar, the worse it makes the user of the mail sending service look. If they used Sendgrid for example to send a mass email to 10k people, if more than 5% Unsubscribe or mark as spam or use the “I never signed up for this”, the company might get their account locked down by Sendgrid until there’s an investigation as to why they sent spam.

shadshack,

On the flip side of the argument, I have a pit mix and she’s the sweetest thing in the world. Never has bitten anything other than a toy, and she doesn’t even bark unless she gets the zoomies while playing. She’s been great with my 2 year old nephew, too. Got her from the shelter when she was about a year and a half old. She’s 50% pit, so I feel like if it was genetic she’d be way more aggressive.

Any tips for switching Hypervisor from Hyper-V to Proxmox?

I’m thinking about making some changes to my home server to make it a little more robust and let me do some cool new things with it (like actually trust it for backing up data to with NextCloud, replicating VMs or data across sites, etc). I’m just looking for any advice people might have for this process to migrate...

shadshack,

I hadn’t seen that. Thanks for the link! That’s definitely gonna be helpful.

shadshack,

Thanks, I wasn’t sure about the data being taken care of first or last. First makes a lot more sense though. And prepping as many services into VMs ahead of time definitely sounds like it’ll be the best way to reduce downtime, even if I then end up moving it into a different container again later on.

shadshack,

How hard is replication across servers with just debian and qemu? I’m honestly not super great on linux knowledge. I’m a Windows sysadmin by trade, with maybe 10-20% linux. I run a few Ubuntu server VMs at home and some RHEL at work. So I’m looking for something as easy to set up and well-documented and supported as possible. Proxmox just seemed like the “industry standard” for selfhosting, but I was also looking at Unraid (which is supposedly better at storage and less good at virtualization) or even ESXI, but I didn’t want to get into the VMWare payment bubble if I needed anything more than a simple host.

shadshack,

So I’ll just throw out my personal anecdote, as a Model 3 owner. Every single person who’s ever gotten into my car for the first time cannot find the electronic button that opens the door, to the point that I got little vinyl decals with a door open symbol on them to indicate that button opens the door. Usually what happens for first-time passengers is one of two things:

  1. Someone can’t find the button to open the door and immediately grabs the mechanical manual release and opens the door just fine (as long as they’re in the passenger seat, as the rear seats do not have one. I agree that is dumb.)
  2. Someone finds the button and presses it, then the window rolls down slightly (about half an inch) and the door unlatches and partially opens. The person then thinks they just rolled down the window and doesn’t just push the now-opened door, so the latch re-engages after a moment. I then tell them “push the button and then open the door” and then it’s fine.

I agree that the way to open the door, even from the outside, is not intuitive when compared to what most people are accustomed to. Any time someone gets in for the first time I have to explain “press the big part with your thumb and then grab the handle”. But it takes no more than half a second to figure out if you’re the least bit observant. Hell, when I first got the car I drove my friend around for a few weeks before realizing the beeping when the passenger’s door opened was because he used the manual mechanical door release instead of the button every time. He literally found the manual release more easily than the intended button for opening the door, and just thought that was the right way to open it until I told him otherwise.

shadshack,

Yeah I hate this. It needs to be a setting. It being on the left when I’m right-handed and have to reach all the way across will have me using a different app.

shadshack,

This is great! I’ve been working with the code and added keys for upvote/downvote as well (it’s basically the same as the Expand code, but targeting the Upvote/Downvote buttons. I also have it set so that if you vote, it automatically scrolls to the next post and maintains “expand” status.

Now I can scroll lemmy and upvote/downvote to mark posts as read with just a/z, exactly how I used to use RES keyboard shortcuts for Reddit.

Here’s the code I’m using (pastebin because posting it in the comment keeps timing out…): pastebin.com/BTYyU17L
