Rewatching Battlestar Galactica has been absolutely fantastic! I can’t believe how much I have forgotten. It’s nearly been a first time experience for me this time around.

I guess there’s one upside to my deteriorating memory function. Like seriously, I appreciate being able to experience the things I love, again, for the “first” time. Hopefully the old memory bank doesn’t get any worse.

After a week of running my new gaming PC I have now realized just how poor the performance of my old PC was. It served me very well for many years and allowed me to play basically anything I wanted (except for Alan Wake II), but now I run everything on ultra at 1440p and for the most part I get about 144 FPS in everything.

For the first time in my life I bought a pre-built gaming PC. I have always picked all the parts and put them together myself, but this time I just didn’t have the desire to do that. Plus I did some general pricing and from what I could tell it was going to be somewhat more inexpensive to just buy one.

I of course will customize and upgrade it myself however.

@liaizon@wake.st I feel like if there is no actual feed for it then it can’t really be called a “podcast”. Nearly twenty years of podcasts being something that anyone can subscribe to in whatever way they want has sort of defined the word. Need a new word for these shows that are commercially produced by corporations. Like maybe “paycasts” or something.

I'm glad to announce the release of version 2.51 of , the simple, minimalistic instance server written in C. It includes the following changes:

Support for custom Emojis has been added; they are no longer hardcoded, but read from the emojis.json file at the server base directory. Also, they are no longer limited to string substitutions, but images as external URLs are also supported (see snac(8) for more information).

Fixed a bug that caused some notifications to be lost when coming from a user in the same instance.

Added an additional check for blocked instances (sometimes, posts from blocked sites that were ancestors of legit posts were 'leaking' into the timeline).

On OpenBSD, if the disable_email_notifications server flag is set to true, unveil() is not called for the execution of the /usr/sbin/sendmail binary and pledge() doesn't set the exec promise.

I want to get away from iCloud Photos, but a must have is that I can access my photos in an easy way on iOS, iPadOS and macOS. Next to it, I must find photos by given text like „summer beach wife high heels red dress“ or „yellow motorbike nordschleife“. Therefore, it needs not only face & object recognition but also usable apps for mobile devices. Clicking 10 minutes through a web ui is no solution. I gave nextcloud and immich a try and unfortunately both failed. Nextcloud tooks ages for previewing thumbnails even this features are only available in the web ui, immich looks pretty good but could only handle a subset of photos for testing because it takes long time to import and scan everything. So, immich looks promising before taking the efforts, maybe someone can give some insights with bigger libraries.

Improved page position after hitting the Hide or MUTE buttons (for most cases).

Use a shorter maximum conversation thread level (also, this maximum value is now configurable at compilation level with the MAX_CONVERSATION_LEVELS define).

Fixed a bug where editing a post made the attached media or video to be lost.

Nextcloud: Round 3 (or 4 or 5)

I’ve once again started the process of installing and setting up Nextcloud on one of my servers. It occurs to me that my Nextcloud instances always die a slow death. Something about that piece of software, I think, sort of just falls apart over time. This time I’m attempting to future proof it a little bit more than the previous times, but honestly I fully expect it to go about the same as usual. Then again, historically I have installed all kinds of plugins (or apps) and was running it on fairly low powered hardware. Setting it up on some decently powerful hardware on this go around though. I’ll also try to be more conservative with the app installs as well.

I might actually set up two separate instances and federate them together. Perhaps if I maintain multiple servers they’ll survive a bit longer? Or I’ll just be creating twice the amount of tinkering and maintenance for myself.

I had intended to get a bunch of stuff done with some projects today, but a migraine has basically halted any of that from happening.

I’m trying to wrap my head around working with Lemmy posts in the confines of Mastodons posts, specifically what kind of ActivityPub object is a Lemmy post? Is it an “Article”?

I finally got around to setting up snac2 (https://codeberg.org/grunfink/snac2) on my server. I have been considering ditching entirely, as far as hosting it, and perhaps this is what I might use. I will give it a while and see how it goes.

So if you see me start following you from here, you will know it is me!
