@larma The concept of a "default server" is less prominent on the login screen now, as now (since the .well-known file was implemented) clients automatically detect your server on the login screen when you type just the Matrix ID.

(Although it seems RiotX is still struggling with this, since it instead requires entering the server before the login details, instead of doing the simpler "user ID and password, detect server, ask for the server URL if not detected, login" flow)

@larma As far as I know, the integration server is now chosen by your Matrix server instead of having a default.

@datenschutzratgeber @BLUW It's referring to the integration server, which in older versions of Riot (and so in this legacy Riot Android as well), used to only point to one specific integration server hosted by Modular. In desktop Riot it is configurable, but on Android all development effort is currently done towards the new RiotX instead.

The integration server is used when you use the Apps menu in the app to add bridges, bots, and widgets to the chat.

Maybe you've noticed that #OpenStreetMap map tiles are being served very slow in the last few months. The #OSM tech team has now made clear [1] that any offer for caching servers would be appreciated. If you'd like to support them, see wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Se for more info.

@bart @matrix Longer answer: The ruma-client library is more of a lower-level library that really just abstracts Matrix into Rust types and functions, an SDK goes on top of that and handles the tedious stuff like keeping track of room state and pagination and event relations and whatever

So our state media company published an article on 30 ways to have fun while staying at home

number 23 literally says "make your own fursona and become a fursuiter" (and links to an older article of theirs about fursuiting)

Seems like Corona is consistently the only beer that's sold out of all the stores around here.

Remember to practice physical distancing!

Testing the capacity of remote-working software and network solutions was not something I expected a global virus outbreak to do, even though it's obvious in hindsight.

New take: the attitude where people like to gripe about how "everything in tech is broken", "nothing works properly", "everything is full of bugs" forms a culture of perfectionism and shaming that in itself encourages bad software engineering practices

messed up that there's only been one tv series about friends

@vnen I'm not thinking about Miis with human skin or those kinds of nightmare fuel things, but generating realistic photos of human faces (in the style of thispersondoesnotexist.com ) with the input being the Mii face configuration parameters.

idea: train a neutral network using photos of people and their corresponding Miis, to then be able to generate a realistic photo of a person based on a Mii
