@devinprater Can you use an ssh config file to do mappings? I know I've mapped ssh keys based on the website it's going to, but that's been with completely different sites. I can't remember if github username is in the git remote path and if that's something you can use in your ssh config to determine your key.

Or, will github allow you to add one of those keys to the "other" github profile, so one profile can be pushed to with either key, and then one of those keys can push to either profile?

@GoatsLive ooh, very cool! I took a stick welding day class, but I want to try MIG welding some time. I could see having a lot of fun and utility in being able to build things out of a mixture of steel and wood.

Not sure I'd trust myself to build something to go on the road, but maybe a gokart. Lol.

@devinprater I haven't used pip in a while, but I think the symbols are supposed to be like a line spinning around it's center point so it 'creates' a circle in the space it covers as it 'spins'. I think the animation would be like if you lay a pencil on a desk and spin it, but just take snapshots of the position for each one eighth rotation. Let me know if I didn't explain that very well.

@lordbowlich that's because the bucket Pitt gives you is static only. I know because I used to have one :P and they gave an extremely small storage space that if you were using for a digital media class website you had to ask for it to be increased several times for it to be useful.

There is something very nostalgic about a static webserver bucket and some ftp credentials. Not sure if Pitt is still offering that to students by default or not.

@nolan kind of reminds me of this project: ractive-player.org/

But I think maybe they are trying to serve different purposes? Replay being debugging and reactive being demonstrating? Not sure, but I know the person who built reactive and will def send replay to him and see what he thinks!

Getting my ducks in a row. Except they're cats, not ducks. And we're at a laser show.

*** If I'm not too tired and cranky from staying up too late investigating this on my phone, I'll try and reproduce and pass along to Mozilla/Firefox team via support? Reddit? Idk.

But if I make those simple reproduction pages, I'll have to paste the escaped source code in my post, or else the dev team won't be able to read it on mobile. Because FIREFOX MOBILE DOESN'T SUPPORT VIEW SOURCE.

I even tried a JS bookmark hack. But you can't add custom bookmarks on mobile either!

** My other mobile Firefox problem is that I can't seem to usefully type in any sore of more than plain text box. What I mean is, any text area on mobile firefox where one would edit code, completely freaks out for me. Sometimes deleting doesn't work, or my cursor jumps to different points in the text as I'm deleting or typing. Basically completely unusable.

Basic html input element: developer.mozilla.org/en-US/do

Jsfiddle (I think*) using js click for file upload, but doesn't bypass permissions: jsfiddle.net/NkycS/2/

Jsfiddle for bypassing camera perms after they've been denied: jsfiddle.net/3wJSY/

* I say "I think" because neither MDN's page nor jsfiddle are very mobile display friendly, and another mobile problem I'm having**.

I may create simple reproduction pages on my site with steps and pass this along to Mozilla, if they care. ... ***

OK, but here's a kicker: even if you've denied access to Firefox for the camera permission, it's possible to bypass that, and still open the file dialog, without actually getting camera permission. support.mozilla.org/en-US/ques

Which was an embarrassing exchange where two people completely talked past each other. But there's a jsfiddle where I get and close the alert, click the browse button, and the file dialog comes up even tho I have Firefox set to deny camera permission and not to ask me anymore.

OMFG it was a permission for the Firefox app itself, in android: support.mozilla.org/en-US/ques

Not sure how/why I turned that off (I'm just going to assume it was me at this point), or why the file upload button does nothing, and gives no feedback, if you don't have on the 'camera' permission, but glad another months long problem for me on ff is finally resolved.

I did test it in nightly, and as of 86, file input does seem to work mostly normally. Vivaldi has a better file select ui, but . Still ridiculous that it hasn't worked for months in production, and the problem still isn't fixed until it's out of nightly and into the main app. It's things like this that make me wonder if Firefox will ever hold a significant market share again. With stuff like this outstanding, I certainly can't suggest it to others to use.

So apparently file input on Firefox mobile just... doesn't work? I thought it was a pixelfed problem, and gave up on using it over the past few months. Was about to post pics to mastodon only to realize the attachment button didn't work on mastodon. Tested MDN's file input element page and the example flat out doesn't work. It would seem maybe a bit of JavaScript is needed to trigger a click on the input element to get it to work, which is ridiculous.

Saw a blog post advocating for using a transparent gif to put spacing between two elements instead of margin. They didn't feel margin was *semantic* enough...

And an image is???

It probably got me more upset than it should have.

@iarna :O which fake beef is that? Is it impossible?

I've been meet free for probably 8 years now, and I still get random nostalgia cravings for meatloaf stuffed with cheesy broccoli. I don't think the beefless crumbles I use would really have the structure for it.

@diffrentcolours would it be a portmanfaux pas for me to try and force a joke involving a Before & After style phrase into a portmanteau conversation?

@PixxburghGirl @YinzPittsburghers Cool. I appreciate any boost it can get. Also looking into masto.host as an easy way to host a fedi account myself.

If you have/get any questions about pittsburghhousing me know. It's open source, I'm local, and it's underlying software is built locals in other counties can run their own instances (just like mastodon).
