@unfa we need a crash recovery for the crash recovery! πŸ˜‚

@unfa there is a firefox extension to make skype work on FF. I use it while I still need skype for a few things addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

@openmastering @unfa @dump_stack hmm well, yes, and yes and yes. have you seen the pipewire post? the screenshot already shows that in action (audio-wise). You can see Chrome in Carla's canvas (running in JACK mode), so we can already take its audio and pass through anything else in the graph.

@openmastering @unfa @dump_stack not sure.. pipewire devs recommend using the same (pulse/jack) APIs we do right now. I guess because not everyone is going to have pipewire installed, but they are going to have pulseaudio and/or jack.
But from a developer's perspective, JACK API is very simple yet allows to do a lot, so I do not see enough of a reason to directly use pipewire APIs since the custom pipewire libjack is staying with us for the long-term.

@unfa @dump_stack pipewire sits on top of ALSA and provides pulseaudio and jack-compatible interfaces. the applications keep working exactly as they were before, except now they can talk to each other regardless of API, because pipewire is there on top managing the whole thing.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

@unfa some of those are optional, but intentionally hidden away as to still be possible but only if you know what you are looking for. It is a design anti-pattern, sadly getting common nowadays :(

In case you're using Sfizz - probably the best FOSS LV2 SFZ sampler - you may want to star it on Github - the devs are very close to 100 stars which'll grant them crowdfunding powers there. I've realized I haven't starred it yet, so I've fixed it - maybe you're like me :)

Try uploading a 20 Hz - 20 kHz sine sweep to Soundcloud and let me know if it get's taken down for copyright violation (LOL).
So far no success.

A friend of a friend just had their first board game Kickstarter launch. It's a card-based one-on-one duel game that reminds me in a lot of ways of the sadly-didn't-last-long CCG Corunea that I thought was wonderful back in the day. It's called Duels of Cartisora. If you want to check out the KS, feel free! Also if you want to boost this, I would appreciate it!


Another Benn Jordan (aka "Benn and Gear") video about a product yours truly helps create.
Very exciting! πŸš€

Nice little performance at the beginning 😎

@zrythm sorry but what are you sharing? this is from 2018 when Linus temporarily stepped down for personal issues. It had nothing to do with binary blobs.. that site seems like an incoherent mess tbh.

@zrythm that sounds wrong... You know carla is only 9 years old right? 😱 πŸš€

I often write a sort of "monthly report" of KXStudio related things.
It is to let others know what I have been doing regarding FLOSS stuff.
It is not exactly monthly tbh, but often enough...

Anyway, here's the latest one!
KXStudio Monthly Report (July 2020)

A question though... is this sorta link useful to share here? what do you think?

@unfa I read their ToS before, it was the usual BS and more.
1st they define what words mean, that they are bound by this and that countries laws; then some branding; no warranty etc; then comes what they allow you to do; then some user data logged and sometimes recorded but only in order to improve the product (promise!); then list of partners this data is shared with (not counting companies owned by them or the government); and finally something on how ToS still valid even one term is void

@unfa for things like these, I usually go to RMS' site first, usually there is a good collection of reasons on why not to use a specific service.
For discord, here is a link stallman.org/discord.html
