@garrett Endless's Hack used to be a constellation of IIRC half a dozen Flatpaks, but to submit it to Flathub it had to be rolled up into a single, larger, weirdly-shaped blob. You can guess what the scripts to do this were named!


My daughter L listens to a particular bedtime story podcast in the same podcast app that I use, which carries a risk of her accidentally listening to a confusing and frequently obscene spoof agricultural podcast instead.

Any recommendations for an Android media player for a local directory of podcast mp3s?

Speakers of languages which do not use the Latin alphabet: if you were looking at my app in your app store, would you hope to see my name transliterated?

@cassidyjames and is there any correlation between "listing is good" and "listing is translated"? Vast swathes of Flathub have appdata in the Flathub repo, untranslated and not wired up to any translation infrastructure.


@nasser ah it's you I have to blame for discovering this!

There are dozens of fish or fish-like emoji (e.g., 🐟 🐠🎣🐡🦈🐬🐳🐋🐟.𓆝𓆟)

In fact, there are so many that, if I sent you a random one, a third party wouldn't have a good chance of guessing which one I'd sent.
This means we could adopt a new form of 2FA based on sending fish emoji

People say the gateway drug effect is “without conclusive evidence”, but to them I say: witness my rapid progression to higher orders of 2ⁿ-rdle (Wordle, Dordle, Quordle, Octordle, and now Sedecordle).

@ted Agreed! 95% of the time I ask "ugh, who wrote THIS" the answer is "me in 2017".

I book a blood donation appointment about every 3 months, and with very high probability something always seems to come up at the last minute to stop me: deadly plague, vaccine against deadly plague, donation centre shut down with 3 days notice, but most often a general cold (as this week). Do I cause more harm than good by postponing 90% of appointments with 1-2 days' notice?

@dylanmccall there was once bridge.joinmastodon.org, but it is apparently RIP

@fraggle a week is a lot sooner than I would expect to find such an evening 🙃

(this was the only thing on the Discover Weekly playlist not derived from my kids obsessively listening to the Frozen soundtrack)

@fraggle maybe I'll upload it to Flathub on an idle evening...

I've had a balalaika for 7 years and Spotify has finally surfaced something relevant to this interest

Just described something which happens every 4 weeks as “tetrahebdomadal” and feeling pretty smug tbh


“8% of people eat breakfast cereal without milk or yogurt” factoid actualy just statistical error. My todlder, who eats over 10,000 dry Cheerios each day, is an outlier adn should not have been counted
