Do people on Mastodon not fav as much as people like on Twitter? I think of them as equivalent, but am very confused by some RT-to-fav ratios I’ve seen here (often I’m the only one to fav, which feels bizarre).
Announcement: In general, I’d like to reduce the bus factor of the tools I write on my own; if you’re interested in co-maintaining them, you can always contact me. See https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Lucas_Werkmeister#Tools for a bit more on this.
The tool now supports editing as well! Click the “add region” button, then drag the mouse across the image with the left mouse button held down.
If you’re logged in via OAuth, the edit is made directly, otherwise the tool copies QuickStatements syntax to your clipboard. See https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Lucas_Werkmeister/Wikidata_Image_Positions#Editing for more documentation.
I built a tool to show the relative position of depicted elements within the images of #wikidata items.
• The Coronation of Napoleon: https://tools.wmflabs.org/wd-image-positions/item/Q1231009
• Situation Room (in screenshot): https://tools.wmflabs.org/wd-image-positions/item/Q2915674
most common Mastodon instances of all items with Mastodon username on #wikidata:
• mastodon.social (24)
• mamot.fr (18)
• chaos.social (14)
and specifically of Wikimedians:
• mastodon.social (3)
Do you use GNOME Terminal? Do you use tmux? Have you recently encountered problems like “failed to use specified server” or “failed to get screen from object path”? This might help you! https://github.com/lucaswerkmeister/home/commit/96b02b00a3dececf2271f73a7188a2c53b4fbc0c
TIL: Linux supports atomically exchanging files!
oldpath and newpath must be on the same mounted file system, but can be in different directories and have different types.
However, there’s no glibc wrapper or coreutils tools for this yet. (Also, note that all Unices already support atomically replacing symbolic links, which is sufficient for a lot of cases where you might use RENAME_EXCHANGE.)
