@Tusky is it a known bug that when I reopen Tusky after a while and it refreshes, the top toot disappears from my main feed, even though it is technically still in my feed?

What's your best tip on how to learn how to quickly understand someone else's code?

I really want to try LineageOS to see if I can change the behaviour of the slider there, but I feel like it's too much of a hassle to install it. πŸ€”

The Android-9-Update just ruined my OnePlus 5T. Now the volume slider is just trash.
You used to be able to have it either on normal mode, do-not-disturb or vibrate mode. The great thing is that media volume was automatically muted in vibrate mode but calls would still vibrate. Now you have the choice between either "loud calls", "loud media" or dead brick.
Well I guess my next phone won't be a OnePlus. The volume slider really was the killer feature for me when I got it.

I don't say it often but there is something Android can learn from iOS: Either don't allow me to open an app that's being updated or postpone the update until I close the app eventually. Don't just kick me out of the app when the download is finished.. πŸ™„

Niche skills and tools are a gift to your future self.

I learned Regular Expressions, not because it was the only solution to a problem, but because it kept showing up as a potential solution to many problems.

So I infested the time in myself to read a book on Regular Expressions and it has paid off ten-fold.

Not every investment in skill development is going to pay off that well... but sometimes the payoff will come at a critical moment and you'll be glad you took the time to learn.

Just installed Linux 5.0.0. It's always exciting to try a new version of . :D

When did it happen that people finally understood that you don't need the "www." in a domain? πŸ€”

Still looking for an alternative to K9Mail on Android as a solid IMAP-Client. If you have an email account that does not have its own client app (e.g. not Gmail or ProtonMail), what's your favorite app?

What terminal emulator are you guys using? I used to use urxvt but it doesn't have good emoji support, so I wanted to try st but it acts weird with the delete key for me (doesn't work in bash but works normal in Vim). πŸ€”

@Tusky Why is Tusky uploading a photo I selected immediately before I even send the toot? What if I picked the wrong picture by accident? Then it's immediately on someone's server and I have to beg the admin to delete it, if that's even possible.

and when i look for a TOTP code, there always are 3-6 seconds left, so i have to decide, to rush or to wait for a new one

I appreciate the effort but why do people reply to product questions on shopping sites like Amazon with "Sorry, I don't know"? If you don't know then just delete the email (or in the case of Amazon click the appropriate link so Amazon sends out emails to other customers).

Wow, it took me a while to notice but that new tab-switching feature in Firefox is so stupid. If you also hate it, change browser.ctrlTab.recentlyUsedOrder to false in about:config to get back to the way it always was.

Sorry everyone for the downtime on both my bots and my own profile. I was busy with life and didn't check on Mastodon anymore. However, everything should be working now. :)
