@humanetech I guess I'm not surprised 😞 Maybe you can find a website to try, I just did a couple of searches and there are Emoji mashup builders online but they don't produce the same results.
@humanetech It's built with Gboard, you just switch the keyboard to emojis instead of characters and if you pick two you'll see the mashup https://lifehacker.com/create-and-customize-your-own-android-emojis-with-gboar-1841638107
@humanetech cool, thanks for letting me know :D
I still have to read your response in the forum, but I think it's ok to talk about that, you can't always separate tech from people. If it goes too much off topic you can always branch into a new topic.
If you enjoyed this post, we have been talking about it in the Solid Forum and the Zero Data Chat:
One of the reasons why I am working with Solid is that it embraces interoperability as one of its core values. But there is a lot of nuance about what that looks like in practice. In this blog post, I share my thoughts on the topic. https://noeldemartin.com/blog/interoperable-serendipity
I've just released an alpha version of an app I'm working on. It's not production-ready, but I'd appreciate it if you give me some feedback: https://forum.solidproject.org/t/request-for-comments-crdtish-approach-to-solid/4211/14
Personally I don't care about my job title, and I don't think I care about my "career path" either. I just want to do something I enjoy doing :). And improve following my curiosity, rather than having a plan.
@dajbelshaw I agree with @JordiGH's point, not everyone wants to be "promoted" in that way. But yes, it is tricky to define what a Senior is/isn't. I like how Basecamp put it https://basecamp.com/handbook/appendix-05-titles-for-programmers
@tychi Yeah I know waiting for the network is annoying, that's why the app I'm working on will be offline-first, and I'll eventually update Media Kraken as well :D. But it's definitely not simple under the hood, it was already complicated enough with an ORM for Solid, now I'm adding sort of a CRDT 😅 .
I'd be happy to help you if you have any questions about Solid, feel free to ask me if you ever get stuck or have any doubts :).
Going for Simple is probably a good idea, it seems like I've taken the complete opposite route and I'm second guessing that choice every day xD. I do want my apps to last as long as the web though :).
@VincentTunru @5am @Zwifi Yes I do :) But I haven't updated it for a long while. I am still using an old version of NSS, but maybe if I did it today I would use CSS. I don't mind so much because I'm the only one using it, I don't host data for anyone else.
You can read about how I did it in my website. Since I wrote that, I haven't changed a single thing: https://noeldemartin.com/tasks/configuring-a-self-hosted-solid-pod-server
@VincentTunru I just learned a new term that may be useful (as long as it doesn't become a target), "cyclomatic complexity". Not sure how easy it is to calculate, though.
@dajbelshaw @epilepticrabbit I'm trying to see where the timestamps are defined but it doesn't appear anywhere on the RSS feed, so I think the metadata is embedded on the audio file. I have never done it myself, but it seems like these are called "chapters", searching for "podcast chapters" online there seem to be some articles explaining it. Sorry if I can't be more useful 🙈 .
@dajbelshaw @epilepticrabbit I think it's fine if you don't overthink it, I wouldn't say that's the reason why I liked it. I liked the other episodes as well, it's just that I found all those insights into coops very interesting because I know almost nothing about them :).
And about topic markers, unfortunately not many do it well :(. Which is why when I see someone using them it's great! One example of a podcast that has it is this one https://designdetails.fm/
@dajbelshaw @epilepticrabbit I just finished listening to all 6! I'm enjoying the podcast, and I'm looking forward to next season :D. Not to be boring, but the one I enjoyed the most is the first one when you talked about different types of coops. It's also nice that you sometimes have guests and sometimes you don't. And something to improve, it'd be nice to have topic timestamps (sorry Laura xD). I don't always listen to episodes in one go, and it is useful to know where to stop :).
