Recommendations for a good .ca domain host?
  • in the end I went with CanSpace as registrar, and I’m using CloudFlare to actually run the nameservers.

    The transfer was kind of a PITA because since the domain transferred from Google to Squarespace to Canspace to then being hosted on CF’s nameservers (but still on Canspace) the DNSSEC meant that CF couldn’t actually get it connected until like 48 hours later. Was quite worried that I’d screwed up somewhere.

  • What are your favourite controllers?
  • Honestly the 2nd analog stick I didn't mind too much because the face-buttons made a decent D-pad for the tiny handful of shooters on the DC. The bigger flaw was the lack of 2nd shoulder-buttons.

    Also that putting a screen into a controller has always been a solution looking for a problem. It was on the DC, it was on the Wii-U, and there's a good reason they abandoned the idea to put a screen on the PS4 touchpad controller.

  • Recommendations for a good .ca domain host?

    So lemmiverse, my https://pxtl.ca domain has officially been booted off of Google Domains (welcome to the Google graveyard, Google Domains) and now has been moved into Squarespace, which is expensive.

    Anybody recommend a good cheap .ca TLD domain host? One with a decent API for dynamic DNS so I can keep my home subdomain? I have a couple of pi4 servers in the house that could be tasked with pinging an API endpoint to notify the domain host of my IP.

    thanks in advance.

    U.S. Supreme Court rules presidents have immunity from prosecution for official acts in office
  • McConnell is the only conservative ghoul I want to see live a very long life, because for all his flaws I know he hates Trump and what Trump stands for as much as anybody and I want to watch him realize what he's done.

    Fork it! It's time for a Mastodon hard fork
  • I have my own shopping list of Mastodon features that i watched languish in PRs on GitHub. I like Rochko, but he completely failed to meet the moment of Twitter's explosion and make the massive flood of excitement about Mastodon into the real permanent gains that were up for grabs.

    Most of my wish list have nothing to do with safety because I'm a straight cis white guy and so my experience of Mastodon is that its userbase is painfully anodyne.

    But the point stands that a hard fork with a focus on development velocity is long overdue.

  • Merlin has the problem that it doesn't have something like like aimesh where you can auto synch the config between all your routers. I've got a network of three Asus routers and they work great and I can admin them like they're one router, and I'd hate to have to give that to up.

  • UNBEATABLE - Trailer
  • The animation and aesthetic is amazing and I like the music but ... what's the gameplay? I confess I got a little disappointed when it shifted to platformer perspective.

  • We're now upgraded to 0.19.4
  • I can't help but notice the stark contrast between the rate of improvement to Lemmy vs the glacial pace of work done on Mastodon. Lemmy seems to embrace the "move fast and break things" ethos so much better than Mastodon which just crawls at implementing critical functionality. Which is funny, I follow Dessalines and Gargron on various platforms; Gargron seems like a much more sensible and reasonable and decent person so this is kinda disappointing.

    This is a social network. It's recreation. I want you to move fast and break things. That's how Facebook won. You're not going to chase down the gazelle by walking.

  • Google signs deal with organization to distribute $100M to Canadian news companies
  • So after everybody saying the Liberals were going to lose this fight, Google flinched.

    I mean, I'm still not sure this is good policy but it is nice to see the haters proven wrong.

  • Singh calls for investigation, charges for MPs implicated in foreign interference report
  • Source? That would be exceptionally bone-headed messaging to say out loud, and while the Liberals are masters at cramming their feet in their mouths (Freeland in particular) that level of pooping-out-toes is beyond even her.

  • Samsung is sunsetting Tizen and fully ending support for the smartwatch OS
  • They're great hardware but the software is bad.

  • Samsung is sunsetting Tizen and fully ending support for the smartwatch OS
  • WearOS, at least the Samsung variant of it, is goddamned awful. It seems to want to be a full standalone device when I want it to just be an extension of my phone, and it's an extension of my phone when I want it to stand alone. Worst of both worlds.

    I miss my Pebble. Week-long battery, truly always-on-screen, and knew what it was trying to be (just show me notifications)

  • In case you missed it: Bank info-stealing malware found in 90+ Android apps with 5.5M installs
  • That's not what I mean. I'm not thinking about Play Store security, but Android OS security. Like, your app physically has to ask for permission (or even require the user manually change settings) to do most unsafe things.

  • In case you missed it: Bank info-stealing malware found in 90+ Android apps with 5.5M installs
  • As somebody who occasionally had to develop for android: the churn of improvements to app security was a huge pita. And as a user I know many of the abandoned apps that I liked that lost compatibility was for that reason.

    So the fact that in spite of this pain, Android security still allows apps to do horrible crap like that is infuriating.

    am i just bad at devops?
  • DevOps is bad because for some reason we've decided to invent new programming languages that you can't debug locally and so you have to keep pushing commits to the pipeline server. It's bullshit.

    "Why do you write all your pipelines as shell scripts and then wrap them in yaml at the very end"?

    Because then I can run them locally quickly and test individual components of them instead of "edit, commit, push, wait 10 minutes, read error message, repeat".
