As a Heliboard enthusiast and pretty happy with it, I would like to ask you what you find wrong with it, what you miss from the original ?

yep but nothing prevent you from using an hosting service, there are plenty on the web, or you can selfhost

The issue with the current time zones in Europe is that they are far from being natural... The more you go to the west the later the sun is raising and setting, the more you go to the east, the opposite. Current western European time zone is too large... There are initiatives to improve that but will it be done ?

Nuclear war: a scenario, by Annie Jacobsen

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 weeks ago

Thanks for the recommendation, I'll take a look.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 2 weeks ago

Just finished Nuclear war, a scenario by Annie Jacobsen. This nonfiction book about a fictional scenario about what a nuclear war would be really shaked me. I strongly recommend it. Read it in a few days because it was really gripping (ok this week have been a bit hard with the few sleep hours each night).

Not yet found what I'll start reading now but something lighter for sure (perhaps a crime/mystery/thriller, has been long since I read a good one). If you have some recommendations, they are welcome.

Thank you for your dedication in maintaining us a great instance. Very much appreciated, I'm really happy that my initial instance closed and that I choose (mostly out of luck) this one.

I would add for the search suggestion to work (replace searx.be by your instance URL), use this URL in suggestion URL field in firefox

It's indeed noisy, we schedule it to run when we're not at home.

A bit on the costly stuff but I find the vacuum cleaner robot (not sure it's called this in English) very useful. The house is cleaner to be vacuumed every day (even if it's not as efficient as manual vacuuming or cleaning). Especially with pets and children.

Indeed, being Belgian and an adept of the real French fries (double cooked) I was not convinced at all. In the end, I still prefer real fries but I find the air fryer very practical to cook (or warm up quickly - unlike microwave oven it does not make stuff soft) all sort of food.

As almost every readers, I have some favorite authors from which I like to read everything they publish. But I wonder how I can efficiently "follow" their publication. Do you know about a service (free, at least as in free beer, at best from the foss world)which can offer such syndication? I'm thinking about a personalized rss feed, or a e-mail, or any way. For the moment, I just look from time to time to their website or social media page but the issues I have are:

  • I look when I think about it (it would be better to be somehow notified)
  • It's time consuming and inefficient

Based on the awesome job of [email protected] documenting the stuff and applying it to solarized, I tried to do the same with my vim favorite theme: everforest. It's far from perfect (I'm not at all a designer), feel free to improve your way (and share updates in comments). The zinc theme is probably more refined because I use only this one, I tried to make slate match the palette but as I'm not using it it's more difficult.

Ok let's give a little bit of context. I will turn 40 yo in a couple of months and I'm a c++ software developer for more than 18 years. I enjoy to code, I enjoy to write "good" code, readable and so.

However since a few months, I become really afraid of the future of the job I like with the progress of artificial intelligence. Very often I don't sleep at night because of this.

I fear that my job, while not completely disappearing, become a very boring job consisting in debugging code generated automatically, or that the job disappear.

For now, I'm not using AI, I have a few colleagues that do it but I do not want to because one, it remove a part of the coding I like and two I have the feeling that using it is cutting the branch I'm sit on, if you see what I mean. I fear that in a near future, ppl not using it will be fired because seen by the management as less productive...

Am I the only one feeling this way? I have the feeling all tech people are enthusiastic about AI.

Number of (active) Lemmy users seems to stabilize and I think this is a great thing. Indeed we got a lot of users when reddit shutdown its API (I was among them despite being a long time oss user), many have left, but the community seems now to stabilize to ~ ½ of the big grow in june '23. I think this is very nice for lemmy, we can be proud of this project.

I want to get started with home automation, probably based on a raspberry pi (or as of now with my banana pi which is my home server) and either openHAB or home assistant. My goal is, first, to put some temperature/humidity sensors in varous rooms and leak detector in my basement where I had some issues with the main drain. I wonder if you have some recomendations for a usb dongle for zigbee and/or z-wave compatible with linux, not too expensive but good enough if I want to extend the network later. I read about SONOFF-ZB USB Dongle Plus Zigbee 3.0 available on Chinese websites. What do you think?
