Tonight, to my infinite satisfaction, I finally repaired my #nextcloud server.
It had been broken for a week, and every night I had dedicated several hours to trying to figure out what went wrong and how to repair it. The solution, when it came, was very simple, but finding it ultimately required that I learn more about how NextCloud and Linux work.
I pushed my understanding very, very hard, and coming to a solution makes me feel very good. I figure the people on mastodon.technology will understand! :)
@shadowfacts @JPEG As someone who’s only been doing this about a year or so, I’ve written tons of bad code. I can’t make any excuses for someone else’s work, but everything is a learning experience. Since he’s talented enough to get people to pay attention to his stuff, I think it’s a safe bet code quality will improve with time.
@varjmes :( Why does being ill make you feel like a failure?
Linkedin to libraries: drop dead
Bad move, LinkedIn. You mess with librarians at your peril! https://boingboing.net/2019/07/23/unclear-on-the-concept-3.html
Alright, just posted a write-up about the paradox of tolerance. This one will be visible on planet.gnome.org, so there will definitely be some discussion about it.
@tewha I'm not following. How did you come to this conclusion?
@warriorstar: Push notifications require a backend service that cost money to run. Supporting something with ongoing cost indefinitely with a one-time purchase just doesn't make sense. Their options were to either shut down, monetize user data, or charge a subscription. I think they made the best choice.
@snder @brunoph 's desktop mac app Mastonaut is another good option to put on your apps page https://apps.apple.com/us/app/mastonaut/id1450757574?mt=12
