Interesting… we’re having most classes via Zoom. Some via Discord and some are just pre-recorded videos to check out.
Shower thought: do you think the boxes with context about replies, likes and reposts are needed? I’m trying to reduce the complexity and cut edges that I don’t think are needed. I could just re-style it in a way to show that it is a like or repost with a link without the “entire” information - which, most of the times, is not the entire stuff because I set a maximum length.
If you’re reading this, what’s your opinion? Is it really required? Do you find it useful? Or just pretty?
@neptzoo thank you so much! I will work on improving and getting to more irregular figures. I really want to do so but not much confident. Need to try it out.
The IndieWeb own-your-data-thing can be complicated sometimes. Since there are no full fledged systems that allow us to interact with other social media without having to implement it ourselves, sometimes we get to the point where we feel kind of limited. I’m trying not to use other services or, if I do, I’m just POSSE’ing to them. Sometimes it’s hard because there are communities that are more connected on some social media (e.g., Twitter) and the bridge is not always perfect.
Edit: I just hope someday we can have a federated social network that can easily interact with all others…
I decided to publish this simple house I made yesterday. Certainly has a lot of problems, but I’m proud of it.
Never heard of that one. Thanks for sharing that. Usually I use https://regexr.com/ and then Google: how to use regex on language X 😅
Today I decided to dedicate this gallery post to my hometown, Santana da Serra and some of the views you can get in there.
In August, I’m supposed to start a new adventure: I’ve been applying for a few Universities to do my Masters degree in Computer Science somewhere else other than in Portugal. I’ve received some rejections and some acceptances and I’m tempted to choose studying the next two years at TU Eindhoven. However, Covid-19 has just put me in a position where I’d never thought to be.
First of all, I’m feeling that I’ll never return to Lisbon which, I know, is childish. But that’s a feeling I’ve had since the moment I left the apartment where I’m living in Lisbon. Secondly, we don’t know what’s going to happen: is the exam season going to be delayed? Are we having more exams to compensate the professors that didn’t find an alternative evaluation method? I’m pretty sure I’m not going to have any more physical classes until the end of the semester so that’s not what worries me most.
Other than that, looking at Netherland’s strategy to find this new virus, I don’t agree with it (group immunity… hundreds of people are dying there and there are barely anyone recovered) which may be showcasing how bad their healthcare system is? I don’t know because, obviously, I’m not there.
I don’t know… I just feel I should not go. Let’s wait and see what happens and if my mind changes or settles in some solid idea.
