    @aeryn I do. I'm actually considering switching from it through.

    @heyloura thanks! Still lot of small details to add, some stuff I had in the previous theme I forgot how to change etc.

    @aeryn aaaaand done. Check it out :)

    @aeryn it's coming around... I keep tweaking things 😅

    @MitchW but not whales. Whales work for real villains.

    @petebrown then it's probably the usual response of "oh no! They never asked for permission!" which is the same old story of tech, tos, and people getting angry because that's what they're told they need to be.

    @petebrown you mean by ai?

  • Replying to: @aeryn

    @aeryn 🤦‍♂️ I'm not sure how I missed it when I wrote to reply the first time around.

  • Replying to: @aeryn

    @aeryn Oh, where was that? And happy it was fixed!

    @aeryn @hollie now even if you turn it off, or it is MP4, there might be issues still. I convert the videos with a classic command-line tool called ffmpeg, but I'm sure there are simple apps out there that would do it.

  • Replying to: @aeryn

    @aeryn @hollie I might be wrong about this, but if I recall - the iPhone does not use MP4 format for videos by default (which the rest of the world does). Big platforms like YouTube know this and convert on the fly. See this: www.maketecheasier.com/iphone-us...

    @numericcitizen thanks! There were a few people walking their dog and such, and this person got "caught"

    @Annie I get that a lot, usually from women. The case for men (again, usually, also not specific to cis men or cis women) is the extreme opposite: to little and too far in between. The dating apps are fueling the gap further, probably because it's a profitable business model, and it's also easier to build algorithms that mimic other apps then to come up with something complex and complicated for this kind of human interaction.

    At the end it's up to use humans, and get out of our comfort zones. It's probably one of the areas in life where taking risks and chances is the most rewarding - and can be also most devastating.

    @Annie there's a lot to talk about for sure. It's a somewhat weird topic to write about though. Dating apps are quick window shopping that doesn't give you any context, not to mention the unbelievable privacy/security information most of them sell to the highest bidder. I can go on lol...

    @tmcfarlane not him (didn't find him at the time) but there was another channel I followed. As a beginner though, everything around me was explaining Lightroom. I think I'll come back to DT one day though as a replacement for both Photoshop and LR.

  • Replying to: annie.micro.blog

    @Annie as a (very) shy person growing and frequent moving, dating apps were a blessing, and almost the only way I dated. My life wouldn't be the same without them. At the same time, I wish I knew other "methods," and I don't.

  • Replying to: pixelfed.social

    @numericcitizen Very nice and gloomy. Where is it from?

  • Replying to: social.lol

    @jbaty @tmcfarlane I used to use darktable before I got my Mac. The combo of Photoshop-Lightroom is very good, they both complete each other well. Darktable is very powerful and has tons of options, but you need to come with experience already. Documentations and tutorials are not that good / hard to come by, when you compare to Lightroom.

    @grueproof THANK you for this. Much comic relief I needed. I wasn't born in the US so some of it is not something I relate to directly, but it's funny to see how many things seems to be international.... 😂

    @bsag I realize I have a similar thing which is becoming a weekend ceremony - pour over coffee. It's something I bother with on Saturday mornings. It takes longer time, and the coffee is stronger (I drink it black like this) and tastes entirely different, something that signals the weekend.
