Here's a neat iOS developer trick I just figured out:
If you use background fetch, save a ton of memory by not loading your real UI until didBecomeActive (use a splash screen instead). When a user opens the app, it'll load the UI, but if the system just wants to launch to refresh then shut down, it can save all that memory / work.
We cut memory usage during refreshes by about 60%
@Sommer if you’re getting a loan from the dealership this is good to know about so you can have the math prepared in advance: http://www.realcartips.com/cardealers/211-4-square-method.shtml
They’re also going to upsell you on a couple extra things at signing time after the car price is settled. Stuff like a Sirius subscription and a maintenance plan.
The maintenance plan is pretty much just three years of oil changes, so figure out in advance if having that prepaid is worth the price they quote.
@Sommer we bought the outback from Carlson Subaru and it was a breeze. Got the Impreza from Capitol Subaru and it was a little less pleasant but still not bad.
@Sommer we recently bought two Subarus in the area (Outback and Impreza). TrueCar was a good way to get a price and avoid having to negotiate. The prices got emailed to me and I could decide who to engage with. It ends up going through the internet sales departments and they’re lower pressure sales folks and the sales are generally take it or leave it. Just make sure to use a junk email account for it 😀
CWs aren't "censorship" or putting your toots behind some kinda wall, they're basically equivalent to lowering your voice so only the intended people can hear you in this crowded bar, as you talk about stuff that's potentially upsetting, TMI, or whatever.
People don't want CWs on "politics" (which really means "the news") because they're oversensitive and afraid of seeing the news, they read they news, they just don't want it to be a 24-hour punditry vortex in here.
is the mastodon icon a play on "timeline goes sideways" because holy shit https://mastodon.social/media/BOparaJcut5wDPFvlBM
One command configures and starts up a database server, memory cache, web server, and email server, and you've got yourself a Mastodon instance running.
The only setting you need to change in a config file is your domain name.
