FLOSS quality and UX 

@meejah
that happens on org to individual level yes, but as I said if the tool company uses is not easy, and there is an easy option that people can use individuals will gravitate. as I said thats how google calendar got where it is. there were other calendar tools /integration tools organizations were using when it showed up.

FLOSS quality and UX 

@cstanhope
I have also seen people move from existing org tools to other unofficial ones due to ux adventage. Also ux is a factor on smaller groups and companies that might not have a huge budget (money or time) to decipher a tool that is hard to understand and use. :) tldr I don't disagree with what you are saying exactly. would love to have a larger conversation on this at some point.

FLOSS quality and UX 

@cstanhope
first of all sorry for not immediately answering this. its been that type of week. What I said there is also a condensation of a lot longer thoughts and experiences (observing and beinvin dialogue) with organizations about what stops groups to move. For smaller organizations or movements just starting usually the use of the tool begins with the free tier. So yes ease of starting to use and later availability of support is important but [cont]

@noelle
I would go with deciding what project you want to work on and what that requires. Languages come and go. What is popular now will likely not be relevant 5 years from now...

FLOSS quality and UX 

@cstanhope
yes and no. ease of use and ease of support are part of the factors as to why a software is chosen.

if something is easy to use than the clunky alternatives AND trivial to access (e.g. servers are readily available and reliable) people will use it so much that companies will adapt. that is what happened with google docs and calendar...

@Miredly @sungo

another reason to go for kobo is that not only yes it works with calibre but my 5 years old kobo still gets software updates and is still supported. (and yes it works with drm-free books fanfics, manuals etc)

okay that is creepy

@Sandra @paperdigits @kemonine for reliability, and distribute the weight of bandwidth a little in case something goes popular, is my guess. Generally hotlinking to another server for media is not cool.

What happened here was my fault though, I need to setup a cron job to clear old toots but I keep forgetting to. (even then it was almost 2 months worth of data that filled up the 80GBs I had (and about 18GB of that is a backup that is sitting there)

#Nextcloud is used in small & big companies, at home and at schools and universities. But there are many other ways it gets used - have a nice use case for us? We'd love to hear about it! Reply here, or DM us!

@kemonine @paperdigits I'll check this. I have a little over 30GB I think so I guess it is normal (especially as I am following a lot of people who post media content I suppose)

@kemonine @paperdigits this is after removing all posts, and I assumed that also removed the media as well, based on the manual?

@paperdigits I am using mastodon, which works very well when installed via yunohost. just not sure what is accumulating data so fast. even with statuses from 7 days I have like 30GB of data?

that being said still recommend it if you can afford the vps, or have an old laptop etc. I know some people also use pleroma though

sorry about vanishing for 12 hours, it looks like my instance ran out of space. :)

@crash
honestly I prefer sponsored content to adverts for obvious reason but yes it makes linking stuff for teaching tricky.

So far, having a good experience with @yunohost . I've run my own pleroma instance with a VPS before, but maintaining it was always a pain.

@darktable I would be a bit sad to see it go if the team decides that route but would be perfectly happy by it being hidden by default, or it being an advanced feature of chosing to use one or another on a drop down per instance of a module etc (even I have yet to use input and output masks together. its usually the one or the other xD)

I can tell from observing my students that it is probably more confusion for most users than actual help.

@darktable
hi and thanks for checking in. yes I have used output masking. one example is when I use the lowpass filter I do use the output mask rather than the input mask. as the input mask will often have artifacts that stick out like a sore thumb. (mask feather does not work as well and adds transparency) I did use this option sporadically on other modules too, generally the common point is that I use it in cases of excessive noise or doing intense changes to the image

If you're interested in setting up a #Mobilizon instance, #Yunohost has an application for this !

Package with version 1.0.0 is currently in testing (we're trying to find a way to properly run our test suite ...!)

The darktable user manual is largely outdated. Problem is it uses an esoteric kind of XML required by a brittle software stack (Saxon) to be compiled into HTML or PDF.
This complexity steers away many contributors.
But thanks to Chris Elston, @secretlifeofmatt and @paperdigits, it is being rewritten in Markdown with a better "tutorial" approach.
