seems like safari ios uses 10~20MB of disk space for each 1MB of IndexedDB storage (!). loading data on my website, safari asks me "do you want to increase storage limit for 192.168.1.1 to 1.X GB?" a few times. wtf? i allowed it to, went to settings. safari says that my website uses 12MB of storage, all websites together use 80MB. and safari occupies 1.5GB of disk space. deleted my 12MB of data, safari went down to 200MB. mysterious.
then i eventually found out that sound just doesn't work on that machine. so i decoded it on my machine and it was just some music? coworker then found another filename in the askozia web interface, now a ulaw. he sent it to me, i decoded it into wav. it sounded like tape player at 10x speed. tried decoding with 22000 instead of 44100 and it started to sound like a weird voice! idk what's the right frequency, but at 8000 it sounds ok... at least we've found the right file.
we needed to make sure that one file, a custom recording for the call menu (like press 1 to do this and 2 to do that), is saved. coworker found some filename in settings, smth.wav, and tries searching for it in the downloaded directory. no results.
i booted back into the linux live usb and tried searching on the sd card (that only contains the os), still no results. i realized that it's probably converted into a weird format and saved elsewhere.
asterisk/askozia went down for some weird reason, so coworker was trying to fix it and killed it completely. he wanted to save the files (having already exported the main config file), booted that machine into windows pe, and expectably wasn't able to see any files.
so i had to write some linux live usb and boot into it. and then we didn't have a free portable hdd, so i just set up a vsftpd and we downloaded all the files over ftp =.=
lifehack. if there's a website with a responsive layout that hides some buttons in mobile version, and "request desktop version" doesn't help, you can do the following. search for "responsive test", pick one you like, enter your website address and choose the window size you like. now you can see it the way it's shown on desktop!
google translate won't parse anything containing an "@" as a link, so i had to find the atom url for that mastodon post, remove ".atom" and give the resulting link to google translate. but now it won't open content warnings! i click the button and it just doesn't work. i guess it's easier to just copy/paste the post text...
i had a weird dream where microsoft bought a decentralized messenger (that doesn't exist irl). and there was some drama with a ms employee being offended. so they dug up some really old chat logs and found every instance of anyone disagreeing with him (he wasn't even an employee back then). i ended up having my real name (?!) and photo (?!!) in a ms blog post with the list of bad people™️. felt conflicted about whether i should complain on masto or not.
Also, it’s recently come to light that twitter employees abused their access to help foreign governments.
