After personal experience trying to find suitable apps, I wonder: what apps do other people wish existed, but don't? Maybe has some insight (πŸ˜‰)?

Bit of a bad day with ; after multiple releases to get on top of the new requirements by Google (target SDK 28, support 64-bit), hit an issue that broke the app on all pre-Pie versions of Android

PackageInfo.versionCode is deprecated, so it won't build. Use the new version, and it won't run on pre-Pie versions. There's a compatibility package, but to use _that_ you have to update your app to use AndroidX and install Jetifier to hot-patch your node_modules... 😩

Works now. Need 🍺

@cloudflarelink definitely add me to that blacklist for no replies plz πŸ˜‰

Hello #Fediverse!

Now that we have our collective, bank account and donation system setup, we're also investigating alternative #funding options.

Nobody in our team seem to have experience with grants/sponsorships, so if you have experience with these, or know some grants/organizations we should look into, would you mind getting in touch?

(No forum topic listed, this is currently an internal team discussion)

Thank you very much, #BoostsAppreciated!

Tech Question, Home Server 

Hey, I'm thinking of buying a ~$200 little fanless PC to run as an anyways on home server. Anything in particular I should know about specs or requirements?

I'm pretty much looking for something that can host a Mastodon / Minecraft / etc server so I can keep them running without letting my PC go 24/7.


The quintessential Hacker News thread (sibling comments no less):

* keep your bedroom door open to reduce CO2 build up
* keep your bedroom closed in case of fire

The latest Storybundle
is The Warp Speed Ahead Adventure SF Bundle, curated by Kevin J. Anderson.

A huge bundle of 14 DRM-free science fiction e-books.

I'm particularly interested in The Refugee by C.A. Hartman and Blue Sky Tomorrows by L.J. Hachmeister. They look awesome!

#books #ebooks #drmfree

Each book in multiple formats for all your devices.

OK, so I can't sync my files, calendars, contacts, my todo list, access my bookmarks, or my gitlab server - definitely time for HA πŸ˜…

After debating whether to set up a HA environment on for weeks, and deciding against it, my droplet just went down and won't come back up πŸ˜…

In order for Zeno of Elea to fuck all the way off with his dumb paradoxes he would first have to fuck halfway off, then half of the remaining way, and so on.

Though I will say the dude died like a champ: conspired to kill the tyrant of his city, got caught and tortured, told the tyrant to come close to hear a secret, then bit the guy's ear off. I can appreciate a good final fuck you.
