8 gode råd hvis du skal udtale grønlandske ord ⌘ http://makko.dk/uncategorized/8-gode-raad-hvis-du-skal-udtale-groenlandske-ord/

* adiabetic (18 hours ago) [tls]
@kas I probably get a slightly-suboptimal lossily-compressed image. Or maybe I get the same image that I would have had I not bothered to give it a preset hint.

* kas (20 hours ago) [tls]
@adiabetic I rarely, if ever, pass any options to cwebp. What happens if you just “cwebp background.jpg -o background.webp”?

* adiabetic (21 hours ago) [tls]
Day 1 of not installing the latest iOS release. Pulse still normal. Heart rate normal. Sleep moderately disturbed.

* adiabetic (21 hours ago) [tls]
@mdosch Battery-life preservation is a harsh mistress.

* adiabetic (21 hours ago) [tls]
@kas <picture> is pretty great, but there’s no equivalent widely-available functionality for background images, which is a real pity. Just imagine — hero images that take up half the space!

* adiabetic (21 hours ago) [tls]
I’m not sure I like how homebrew will try to build a package if the download fails. I don’t need a second go binary, really.

* kas (22 hours ago) [tls]
A single inhalation of [5-MeO-DMT] is related to sustained enhancement of satisfaction with life, and … ⌘ https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00213-019-05236-w

Pure bash bible – a collection of pure bash alternatives to external processes ⌘ https://github.com/dylanaraps/pure-bash-bible

* mdosch (1 days ago) [tls]
@adiabetic I think my pulse would be high a lot of times if using iOS. I hear of so many problems from #xmpp devs fighting iOS and push. Not having a reliable chat app due to apples design constraints would really piss me off.

* adiabetic (2 days ago) [tls]
Day 0 of not installing the new iOS because everyone says it’s buggy. Pulse normal. Heart rate normal.

* kas (2 days ago) [tls]
@adiabetic I've been using WebP in lieu of PNG and JPEG for months now and I have rarely been disappointed. It's a pity that WebP isn't supported everywhere.

* adiabetic (2 days ago) [tls]
I tried `cwebp -preset photo -o foo.webp foo.jpeg` on a preview image and it was imperceptibly worse at the sizes I expected to show it. Then again, I don’t really care that you can’t read the nutrition labels on a jar in the background of the subject.

* freemor (2 days ago) [tls]
@mdosch yeah, I noticed.. But the Function instead of an alias is still a good hack and one I'll remember. I'll probably just make the 2 line script :)

* mdosch (2 days ago) [tls]
@freemor Forget about my last tweet. I was thinking of a script.

* mdosch (2 days ago) [tls]
@freemor use "$@"?

* kas (2 days ago) [tls]
RFC 8315: Cancel-Locks in Netnews Articles ⌘ https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc8315 #Usenet #NNTP

* freemor (2 days ago) [tls]
@lucidiot Ah! a function instead of an alias. Very clever. I can see this leading to a bunch of new functions in my .bashrc or .profile

* lucidiot (2 days ago) [tls]
I want my microwave to have the Bejeweled voice when it's done cooking. [warms up pizza] spectacular

* lucidiot (2 days ago) [tls]
@kas (re: Usenet) I guess Groups is just easy to find on search engines and gives a more modern UI for NNTP. I have never found any alternatives for it.

lucidiot (2 days ago) [tls]
@freemor tweet () { txtnish tweet "$
" } and you can forget about quotes!

* freemor (2 days ago) [tls]
What I'd like is for it to work correctly if I : tweet <a multi word tweet here> . But forget to quote the words of the tweet. Right now if I forget the quotes it sends each word as a seperate tweet instead of gobbling the entire $2-$N as the tweet.

* freemor (2 days ago) [tls]
@mdosh I have a bash alias tweet='txtnish tweet'. If I just say tweet I get to edit the tweet in vim...

* mdosch (2 days ago) [tls]
@freemor (sorry for not ignoring) What 'tweet alias'?

* freemor (3 days ago) [tls]
Please ignore just tweaking my "Tweet" alias.

world

* freemor (3 days ago) [tls]
hello

* mox (3 days ago) [tls]
@freemor @mdosch yeah, i've seen terminus around! also a good option...

* mdosch (3 days ago) [tls]
(re terminus) here is a screenshot:

* mdosch (3 days ago) [tls]
@freemor @mox (re terminus) Yeah, great font.

* freemor (3 days ago) [tls]
@mox I hope you tried Terminus.. I couldn't live without it.. Well I probably could. But I'd be sad.

* mox (3 days ago) [tls]
been messing around with the fonts in my terminal... 'source code' and 'input' are two i'm trying to decide between

kas (3 days ago) [tls]
@lucidiot (re: Usenet) Yes, I have noticed that many of the articles in dk.
are actually posted from Google Groups. I was kind of surprised.

* kas (3 days ago) [tls]
@freemor (re: INN) Yes, it's not unlike Postfix when counting the number of knobs and config files. And also like Postfix: When INN is set up and running, you don't really feel it or hear from it.

* adiabetic (4 days ago) [tls]
This almost makes me want to bother changing to a 24-bit-color terminal as my main: https://github.com/sharkdp/pastel

What’s the wettest food that the Wicked Witch of the West can safely eat?

* adiabetic (4 days ago) [tls]
@von no worries, I have days/weeks/years like that

* lucidiot (4 days ago) [tls]
@kas I do still read some newsgroups like comp.lang.python or uk.railway, but most of them are still active via Google Groups.

* freemor (4 days ago) [tls]
@kas So somewhat similar to postfix then.. Well I managed that ok. Maybe I'll giv it another look. Thanks

* lucidiot (4 days ago) [tls]
Rice is made out of crushed bones

* kas (4 days ago) [tls]
@freemor Setting up INN is definitely not intuitive. There are so many knobs to be able to turn. Initially, the easiest is to use somebody else's config files as an example. After that, it's just 3 files that need editing when adding a peer.

* kas (4 days ago) [tls]
@freemor I am also hoping that NNTP will see a small renaissance the way gopher has. I love NNTP's way of distributing articles.

* freemor (4 days ago) [tls]
Works like a charm!

* freemor (4 days ago) [tls]
Testing updated post_tweet_hook

* freemor (4 days ago) [tls]
@kas How much of a hastle was setting up INN. I'm no stranger to server set-ups but the few times I've pondered it it seemed a bit complicated (tho that would be year and years ago)?

* freemor (4 days ago) [tls]
@kas I fire up tin to read from nntp.aioe.org from time to time.. but definitely not like the early days. I had soo many good conversation on NNTP back in the day. Hopefully it'll find a niche like gopher seems to have.

kas (4 days ago) [tls]
@freemor I was active on Usenet from 1992 to 2012. Then a week ago I became nostalgic and set up INN (with slrn as news client) again, but dk.
is almost dead.

kas (4 days ago) [tls]
@freemor I agree. I have recently set up INN and am peering dk.
with FU-Berlin and AIOE + some private peers from https://www.pnx.dk/ – it's definitely not like in the old days.

* freemor (4 days ago) [tls]
@kas I use NNTP out of naustalgia from time to time but it is hard to find really good free NNTP servers like back when NNTP was a thing and before it was poluted by binaries.

* kas (4 days ago) [tls]
@lahvak (re: clipboard) hear, hear!
