I like the Groups.io UI, strongly reminds me of times when Yahoo's group service was useful. And it is even better I think.

Because this has been requested a while ago, a german language newsletter mailinglist for my web projects is now available. You can join at https://groups.io/g/robbenradio

Just upgraded to MATE 1.20.2 on this machine, and it is running mouch smoother now. Yeah, even small updates can be useful.

OK maybe not, but at least some rain and lower temperatures for a while would be great. :)

Amazing! Just downloaded more than 100 GB of old german radio content from a website with only one wget command. No connection interrupts during 6 hours. Now let's find a nice place on my NAS for these 8.000 files...

Looking for an USB audio interface as replacement for my M-Audio Delta Audiophile 2496. Minimum 4 line-in / 4 line-out, more would be great. Suggestions?

Finally this machine is back on good old ethernet. Wifi is a little painful in this room corner.

Impedance mismatch. Things you like to see in your network diagnostics when the weekend begins. OK, cable maintenance planned for tomorrow.

Microsoft: Hey, we don't like that you restrict all our fancy privacy options in Windows10. So we now force you to re-enable permissions to ensure your traditional windows apps and not just the modern windows apps work as usual. F*** you!

I'm still not able to access WebKit browsers, even though Orca should be able to access them. Maybe involved other libraries are still to old in Debian stable.
[3.8 months ago]
GNOME Orca 3.28 made it into stretch backports. When upgrading you should also upgrade the atk-adaptor and other accessibility libraries.

@mdosch they increased it to 280 characters last year.
[3.9 months ago]
@mdosch 280 like in twitter.

I'm now also available with at least some automated german blog content at schulle4u@mastodon.social. Let's see how this grows.

WTF! Looks like installing applications from flatpak leeds into a dependency hell. Only installed 3 packages, and each of them needs a certain version of GNOME runtime. Are you serious?
[4.1 months ago]
Not sure what to think about this flatpak thing, but at least I seem to have a more stable audacity on my system.

Time to install new windows tomorrow. No... I mean *real* windows, not this legal malware from microsoft. :D

For those having problems navigating through the MATE panel using keyboard especially when Qt applications are active: $ gsettings set org.mate.panel enable-sni-support true - should work from V1.18.

I was bored this evening and made a silly little GitHub page listing my projects https://schulle4u.github.io

To find out if something works on your machine, remotely guide your best friend through the process and see if it fails there. Yes, I'm a bit evil sometimes. But it was successful. :)

Have to find out where the Debian files are located. It is not the same directory where the usual LXSS Ubuntu files are stored.
[5.4 months ago]
Installed the Debian addon for LXSS on my Windows machine. What a bad person I am.

I've spend this evening maintaining other people's windows machines. Still impressed how easy it has become for blind computer users to help each other using open source software.

Now playing and recent tracks widgets are not working in IE (not that anybody cares). Things may change as the RadioBoss cloud service is still under heavy development.
[6.1 months ago]
Did some Yellow plugin work this week, a shortcut to integrate RadioBoss cloud widgets is now available here https://github.com/schulle4u/yellow-plugin-radioboss

CTRL+Alt+Escape instead of CTRL+Alt+Tab to switch between desktop and panel view in latest mate. Sure, let's break commonly used keyboard shortcuts.
[6.3 months ago]
@mdosch yes, I'm still connected. A little inactive in the last time however.

Miniflux 2.0 is finally out, switching from PHP to Golang. Successfully installed postgresql, created database, installed miniflux data, and finally got an error 500 in the browser. That's what I call a great successor for a thing that... well, just wo...

People telling me that smartphone touch screens are an acceptable environment for extended text processing. The apocalypse is here!

But sometimes I'd like to run this system on faster hardware. This MSI Cubi is way to sluggish in many apps.
[7.4 months ago]
The performance of this machine has increased after updating my MATE environment to 1.18. At least file and menu browsing is a bit faster now.
[7.4 months ago]
Seems my network switch has sporadic issues. File transfers through my network get stuck half-way, that's really annoying. Will have to find something better. :/

Successfully installed the new fenrir console screen reader under raspbian today. German locale is already on my GitHub, I'll send a pull request after final profreading.
[7.8 months ago]
OK, let's stick with 0.16.8 for the moment untill everyone involved in this crap is sober again.
[7.8 months ago]
Debian stretch backports offers a new version of gajim which cann't be installed due to unresolved dependency problems. Python3-nbxmpp >=0.6 is required, but 0.5 is the latest available version. Yeah, that's fun!

WTF! Ripping a DVD in HandBrake feels like sitting infront of a 20 year old machine. This is not a recent system, but at least a Core I5-2500, so I actually should expect faster encoding.

Xmas music and markdown magic, even both things at once. This has been my sunday. Good night.
[9.0 months ago]
Playing around with pandoc. Markdown to html conversion outputs some unexpected results in tables, probably more configuration is required here. Usefull tool anyway.

A new idea for Yellow CMS, and TWTXT is being involved. Damn, I should have better things to do... oh wait, I have better things to do. Real-life-projects first, they're nearly overdue.
[9.1 months ago]
Increased my character limit and warning to 280. I'm to lazy to spend more time shortening my message than actually composing it. This feed is going to be more personal than my twitter, a greater limit makes more sense here.

@mdosch so far I've updated my android and it looks good. The windows FF still has some #a11y performance issues, I'll wait for atleast V58.
[9.2 months ago]
@mdosch not to mention unported addons. NoScript is still not available as webextension, which is an essential addon for me.
[9.2 months ago]
@mdosch as I've read some functions still are under development. Also accessibility is not yet at the same level of previous versions.
[9.2 months ago]
No Firefox 57 for me at the moment, I'll skip this kind of public beta version.

@freemor I could use the orca version from debian's sid repo, but this software is essential for me and therefore I prefer stability.
[9.3 months ago]
Ooops. According to my replies on twtxt.xyz I seem to have followers I didn't know of. Sorry for not answering you.

Note to self: You better take to use two machines during radio shows - one for broadcasting, another for the rest. System issues forcing reboot are not funny.

RadioBOSS Cloud: DJSoft startet Testlauf seiner browserbasierten Radioautomation https://robbinaer.info/index.php?article96/radioboss-cloud
[9.5 months ago]
The only disadvantage: Currently it is no self-hostable solution. I'll keep an eye on it, time will tell how far this is being developed.
[9.5 months ago]
Tested the new Radioboss Cloud by djsoft today. Already very usefull for an alpha-status software, I'm very impressed.

Afaik a newer version of gnome-orca would allow me to use webkit applications.

Nice to see some accessibility-related packages in debian backports. Not Orca unfortunately, but at least BRLTTY 5.5

What I've learned today: Planned maintenance in data centers has to be done at daytime, because customers will greatly enjoy the 2-hour downtime of their servers.

Assuming Opensuse's package repos are as unreliable as their build service repos, I never would use it as an operating system. Crap!

Let's break other stuff on this machine. Currently digging into the rclone documentation, especially the mount feature looks interesting.

Got Pcmanfm to work again by removing ~.config/pcmanfm and ~.config/libfm. No clue what could have caused the actual problem.

Damn! I somehow messed up my pcmanfm installation. Crashes and glib error messages all over the place...

Orca is sluggish when viewing some sites in firefox, unfortunately it is the only screenreader-accessible graphical browser on linux desktops..

trying to view a full-blown website in links2 is scary. Very, very scary, though it loads extremely fast.

Looks like this debian machine is hungry for a bunch of updates today. Let's see what these do...
[10.5 months ago]
@mdom Yes, allready seen your comment. Will send you a PR as soon as I'm sure to keep this thing alive. Chances are good!

Seems I'm the first person mentioning twtxt in a german blog post. 4th search result at google, that's cool.

@c0by Im Browser kannst du die Kodierung aber auch umstellen, Firefox: Ansicht -> Textkodierung -> Unicode.
[10.5 months ago]
@cuby hmm bei mir funktioniert es. Prüfe mal ob dein Terminal auf UTF-8 steht, evt. hat das auch einen Einfluss.
[10.5 months ago]
@c0by Eigentlich seltsam, dass kein UTF-8 zu gehen scheint, da die Textdatei ja so kodiert ist. Bäää
