Woo! I somehow managed to have my local music library symlinked and mounted on Docker on my Synology.
Setting up Funkwhale on my Synology NAS has been a challenge. I learned a lot about Docker and the Synology software in the last few days. I have it running now, but am so far unable to use my existing library. Also I have no clue yet how I can use it outside of my home.
Interesting blog post about bringing back fansites and webrings.
This is kind of what I've been thinking about lately. I'm sure being in my Mastodon bubble pushed me into this direction. But the most interesting websites I follow on the web nowadays is content from websites by regular people.
For example: currently my favourite games website is by a British mom who blogs about obscure Japanese games.
Been wanting to do exactly that! 'Let's bring Fan Sites and webrings back!' https://bryanlrobinson.com/blog/2019/02/07/bring-fansites-back-to-the-web/
This new Laster song 🔥🤘🔥🤘
I'm all for bands not repeating themselves on every new album. But In Flames became worse and worse throughout the years. Obviously they've been quite successful with the type of music they've been playing, but I'm not sure if it's the quality of the music or the mainstream appeal they've developed over the years.
Or did the band lower the bar enough that I'm already happy with a typical aggressive metalcore song with a basic Maiden guitar solo?
Who would've thought, but this new In Flames song is actually pretty good. https://open.spotify.com/track/1ot0GN1UdWtVxhVg6UsCXb?si=NB-IbYVcQdWas83DWjDKLg
That being said, I don't think I even had a tuner for the first year or so. I tuned my guitar at the teacher. It must've sounded horrible all the time. 😂
I'm back into playing guitar again after twenty years. It's cool to see nowadays I can just tune my guitar with an app. Back in the day I had to buy a special device for it.
Also learning guitar has never been so easy with thousands of online tutorials and video teachers.
Also I'm suddenly interested in guitar gear videos on YouTube... I suspect this is going to be an expensive hobby.
Today someone told me they did not have to localise texts in a design, because some big corporate company was also not doing it.
The truth was, it would take them a lot of time to generate the proper texts and that would not fit the planning. 😦
Can't believe this album is already 22 years old! A young Garm on vocals. A classic! #Borknagar
Remember I was building my own website? No? Well anyway, it's not done, but I've made some progress. I moved to Eleventy, a static site generator and it's now hosted for free on Netlify. When I push my changes to Github, Netlify creates a build and automatically deploys a new version. Love it and it's so easy to set-up!
