Got this funny feeling realizing that even now that I am older, the music I loved as a teenager or in my early twenties still sounds the same more than twenty years later.

Stop saying: "Can I ask you a quick question?" - if you need to ask somebody something, it's probably worth more time than can be spent within the expected time frame of what is described by "quick". Please say: "Can you help me with something?" or start the question right away. In fact, if you ask me "Can I ask you a quick question?" you already did.

Found a good reason to bring back more sites : no more cookie consent popups!

Yes, I'm installing Mozilla SeaMonkey v2.49.5 on my Windows 10 machine in 2019. Deal with it. Doing it for the IRC chat and the HTML editor - wanted to get a feel of that old-school wysiwyg style HTML editing.

Nokia 8110 4G Requests - Part 1

2 min read

Nokia 8110 4G banana yellow and black side to side

Gathering a list of issues and changes I would like to see fixed on my 4G phone.

Most of these issues can be fixed with a hypothetical software update. So it's up to HMD Global (@NokiaMobile) to work on the apps and system software on the phone and release a new update - preferably sooner than later.

And the WhatsApp integration should be implemented by Facebook Team WhatsApp of course.

List of software nuisances:

  • WhatsApp is running on the phone, but is lacking in these ways:
    • No https://web.whatsapp.com support, even-though the phone has a QR-reading-cabable camera on board
    • Received videos have a maximum file size of 8MB, so anything bigger than that cannot be opened, at all. Memory limitations?
    • No calling
    • No video chat
  • No emoji input - This makes me really sad. 😅
  • No CalDAV and CardDav sync support - would have been great to be able to easily synchronize contacts outside of Google or Apple sync.
  • The volume controls are practically useless as the phone has three volume settings even-though it has a scale from vibrate to 15, the actual volume stages are "Really Loud", "Loud" or "vibrate".
  • The phone gets really hot during calls - not sure if software or hardware related to be honest.

It would be awesome if this list could be marked off soon.

You know what I really ❤️ about the is how all documentation and communication between the enthusiasts is so well organised and perfectly made available for future reference and it all is linked up really well together. You can keep up-to-date with the latest info by simply visiting the IRC chat logs from time to time. cf. https://chat.indieweb.org/meta/2019-10-21#bottom

Hey, it's Monday October 21st, around 21:40 - great time to start exploding some random loud and stupid in . Not that any children or people who need to go to work in the morning might be sleeping already, right?
