@barrett wait, it works the other way round too! Field without crop, Field containing crop!

@paul it's so frustrating. So many of the things in the music world are still this way.

How is this even a thing? Molex connectors are not reversible! Are there knock-off PSUs out there with reversible "molex" connectors?!

@inmysocks as a native English speaker I'm with @Imani on this one, the more the better, but then as an immigrant into a country I am learning the language of, the less the better. Official stuff should use a plain subset of a language but in general it's the official stuff that uses the most niche of words.

Because I am getting too many strange signups in the last 24 hours and most people don't read the Terms of Service, I added a Temporary Notice to Masto.host Pricing page: masto.host/pricing/

"If you are looking for an alternative to Parler, this is not it. Please look elsewhere. Thanks."

I hope that's clear enough :)

We're doomed folks, Amazon has perfected time travel...

Selfie, eye contact, beard 

I never really do selfies because well, self image stuff... But this made me laugh. I haven't had a haircut since covid and it annoyed me enough to start tying it back. Today I shook it out and nearly fell over laughing because I look like a transporter accident gender swap of B'elanna Torres from Star Trek Voyager.

when this pandemic is over I am going to be so insufferable, I'm going to be in everyone's DMs who lives within a 1 hour drive of me like "hi hi hi hi let's get coffee I know we never met before but let's motherfucking do this"

Nothing to see here. The UK is totally normal. Having a monarchy is not weird at all.

tech nonsense, long 

@Olli_W_ I hope that makes some sense. If not, perhaps tomorrow I can write something more long form.

tech nonsense, long 

@Olli_W_ tricky in short form but effectively I VPN from my home to the 5€ VPS and then on the VPS forward ports 80 and 443 to the other end of the VPN. In my case the VPN is actually just autossh. That means that when someone connects to the VPS, my home server responds.

tech nonsense, long 

@Olli_W_ yep, Vodafone Kabel no ipv4 and lack of any config for ipv6 forwarding forced me to forward all inbound traffic via a VPS at schnellno.de for that very reason.

@cwebber @mlemweb ooh, this sounds interesting, are you documenting the creation of the MREs?

@jameschip @ClearMask it's a hard thing accepting the term "artist" but if you create art, you're an artist. You clearly do create art. I found it really tough to accept that myself.

@ClearMask @jameschip I think it's true of all forms of art tbh. Art is an expression of thought and will always be an imperfect copy of what is in our head. I'm the same way with music especially arrangements I'm making. The whole eye (or ear in the music example) of the beholder thing is truer than most "artists" let on. And yes I'm jumping into this convo to say this so I believe it more about my art!

@draft13 @jameschip I hate that so much music software is still closed source. Especially grid based DAWs (Ableton and bitwig being the only two I know of that really work well with the grid controllers). I'm doing live looping myself and the Ableton Live trial creates files the Lite version won't open. It's like being back in the shareware days again.
