Here's a new #introduction for new visitors... Show more
I'm a Canadian living in Seattle, WA. I do ops at AWS (sorry). I'm married to the best person I know. We have 5yr old twin boys we're teaching to be empathetic, careful and considered members of society, I hope. It's really hard.
I dig music. I drink coffee. I play games. I have a greyhound, Rufus; he's a lovable idiot.
I post random nonsense about my day, music I'm listening to, and what I'm having for lunch. You gonna finish that?
you know how a coupla years back, just as the Outage Machine was really starting to hum, there was this orthogonal push to stop tweeting about your lunch, because nobody cares about your sandwich? that was the thing I loved best about Twitter: people sharing their most mundane, their most regular experiences. It's like a warm blanket, mercifully free of judgement and outrage. I'm no Buddhist, but I really dig the concept of the sacredness of the every day.
I had grilled cheese with bacon, btw.

Somebody has animated sheet music of John Coltrane's saxophone, holy shit. Actually a little dizzying to watch, but so much fun too.
https://radio.evilchi.li/about -- 9.3% of my library didn't import for various reasons, mostly tags, so I've turned picard loose on the library and now my laptop sounds like it's aiming for escape velocity.
That said, nothing I've encountered has failed to already be logged as an issue with the project, and it's getting a ton of attention at the moment so I remain hopeful, and will follow the project with delight. I don't have much time to devote to hacking outside of work, or I'd be jumping all over that issues queue.
evilchili radio is now running #funkwhale 0.17. My first impressions:
1. Wow! this has real promise, I'm super impressed, and
2. Wow! this is not ready for prime time, yet.
Installation was painful. Imports are painful. But the real concerns are usability: the UI needs a *ton* of work, the subsonic API is only half-implemented so 3rd party players are often not happy, and (crucially) media format support and handling of incomplete metadata makes it painful to import a library of moderate size.
Started afresh with my #funkwhale installation and things are much improved; I was able to create a library and upload an mp3. Importing in-place is still having trouble tho...
Welp upgrading to 0.17 has totally trashed the web interface #funkwhale
Also watching a #django project rolling database migrations is hitting me right in the web developer feels. Been a long time since I worked on customer-facing stuff.
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS #funkwhale docker installation required massaging docker-compose.yaml to version 2, and with docker started by systemd all docker commands have to be run under sudo, but otherwise no problems so far.
good morning fedifriends! has anyone done a migration from subsonic/madsonic to #funkwhale who would be willing to share experience? I run madsonic locally and it mostly Just Works but I've never been a fan of the interface, and end up using jamstash when I'm at work (and dsub when mobile). was thinking about giving funkwhale a whirl.

So we finally got a breakdown of what's covered by PTA fundraising at the elementary school.
WTF "THE ARTS?!" Like, just *ALL* of it? Bleeding Christ On A Cracker what is wrong with this country.
And on a more local note fuck you, you rich Seattle fucks*, pay income tax. Fund your schools.
*I am by several measures one of said Fucks and I would gladly pay a municipal income tax if it meant my children's arts education wasn't contingent on a fucking BAKE SALE.
