Huh, Verizon has sold Yahoo and AOL.
For half of what they paid for them. 🤦♂️
To a private equity firm. 😬
Flickr and Tumblr REALLY lucked out that Verizon put in the effort to look for a photo-sharing company and a blogging company to sell them to instead of just muddling along with no idea what to do with them until they just wanted to unload them.
But yeah, Mozilla Coffee was briefly a thing, back in 2003-2004. It wasn't a run by Mozilla, it was someone who had a mail-order coffee business who branded some of it and donated half the profits to the Mozilla Foundation.
When I write something new on my gemlog or import an older blog entry, sometimes I'll also import related posts so I can link within the #gemini capsule instead of out to the web.
Or at the very least make sure it doesn't fucking obscure the options?
In other words, don't be like the fucking idiots who designed #gfycat.
To be more precise, they're actually labeled FFS, which of course is another thing entirely
I wondered if someone could help me by boosting my toot. I'm trying to find software that will work on Windows 10 for drawing using the pen that comes with my Dell laptop. I honestly don't know anything about the subject, so when I try to search on the internet, I'm not getting what I am looking for.
Host fixed their routing so my Nextcloud instance is reachable again and I don't need to move it immediately. But this isn't the first time this has happened, and I'm really starting to think hosting it at home is the way to go. Eventually.
If your tutorial for setting up your service is going to involve #Docker, then please mention that requirement up front.
So I don't have to waste reading half of the article, and can just move on right away to an alternative solution instead.
(a) would be simplest, but I'll just have to deal with this again. (b) would involve researching other providers. (c) would mean figuring out what kind of storage I want to use & figuring out how best to mitigate the risk of allowing external access to a machine on the home network. I mean, yeah, I'm mostly at home these days anyway, but I'm kind of hoping that will change soon!
And still no reply from tech support on the cloud server that lost its network connection to the outside world today (but that I can still SSH into from other servers in their datacenter)
Beginning to wonder if I should (a) move my Nextcloud laterally to another server and drop the old one,
(b) look for a different cloud provider (their managed VPS hosting is SOLID, but this has been flaky),
(c) plug storage into my Pi, host Nextcloud locally & open up outside access for when I'm out.
mental health/anxiety (-)
Something I've noticed lately is that I'm having the worst anxiety problems around indecision. Like, totally freezing up unable to take any sort of action on something because I'm not sure which approach I should take - and then once I just PICK SOMETHING I'm fine, even if I still have a nagging suspicion the other approach would have been better.
