fragmentions a thing natively in the browser? https://chromestatus.com/feature/4733392803332096 at least for chrome

with a crappier proposal yeah. KevinMarks can cite the GitHub issues with more background

ok, I added "2011 prior related proposal and implementation for linking to text in paragraphs: https://open.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/01/11/emphasis-update-and-source/" to the "See Also" section of /fragmention https://indieweb.org/wiki/index.php?diff=68168&oldid=68068

I think I may have asked before, but does anyone have a good icon to indicate the idea of syndication link?
#
chrisaldrich
Maybe a globe icon?
[schmarty] joined the channel
#
[schmarty]
[chrisaldrich] I use a logo/icon for the service the copy is on, where possible. Otherwise the globe ๐ŸŒ icon
#
chrisaldrich
thanks [schmarty] I've been doing roughly the same thing and will continue, but I'm looking for something to prefix that portion with so that I can roughly keep the parallelism in the post meta section. See this example which has calendar, folder, and tag icons for the related pieces: https://boffosocko.com/2020/02/05/fake-news-is-solvable-the-rockefeller-foundation/

[Chris Aldrich] Many talk about the right to freedom of speech online, but rarely do discussions delve a layer deeper into the idea of the โ€œright to reachโ€. Iโ€™ve lately taken to analogizing the artificial reach of bots and partisan disinformation and labeled t...
#
chrisaldrich
maybe the paper airplane icon would work?
#
chrisaldrich
or a satellite dish icon?
#
chrisaldrich
broadcast tower has that sort of connotation too doesn't it? https://fontawesome.com/icons/broadcast-tower?style=solid
#
chrisaldrich
If we can solve this problem, perhaps its also an emoji we could add to the /syndication page?
#
chrisaldrich
satellite dish usually indicates receipt, so maybe a satellite for the idea of sending
[Marlin_Forbes] joined the channel

[Marlin_Forbes]
you could always put in a request for someone to add it here: https://fontawesome.com/community/leaderboard/new

[Aaron_Klemm] joined the channel
#
[Aaron_Klemm]
[chrisaldrich] how about a satellite/broadcast type of thing: https://fontawesome.com/icons/satellite-dish?style=light
kensp joined the channel
#
[Aaron_Klemm]
The broadcast tower is good. Satellites around the globe would be cool, but I couldnt' find one.
#
chrisaldrich
Thanks everyone, these are at least some useful ideas.
#
chrisaldrich
I'll note that the paper airplane looks a lot like the compass arrow indicator I'm using, so I likely won't use it.
#
chrisaldrich
Somehow the satellite and broadcast towers give a "this icon doesn't work square box" on chrome... probably going with the bullhorn for the moment.

don't ever have an Announcements category and that'll do fine. ๐Ÿ˜›

#
GWG
swentel: Are there options on that?
#
swentel
GWG, it's a setting to turn it on at the moment. And there's a 'Clear cache' action in the menu of the channels
#
swentel
other ideas welcome
#
GWG
swentel: How often does it poll? Can it poll only on wifi, etc?
#
swentel
GWG, it doesn't really poll at the moment. When you're connected, it will insert/update the response (even per page)
#
swentel
so, when connected, it always goes to the server
#
GWG
swentel: So, how do you tell it to disconnect?
#
GWG
Is there a Go Offline button?
#
swentel
GWG, I monitor that already. If you're not connected you currently see a 'not connected' screen in case there's no cache.
#
swentel
but would you like to get from cache even when connected?
#
GWG
swentel: On mobile yes
#
swentel
and then a 'refresh from server' option
#
swentel
ah right, like that
#
GWG
But let me play with phase 1 and I'll write up thoughts?
#
GWG
swentel: Metered bandwidth
#
swentel
yep, let's release first and then finetune
#
swentel
it's already a step forwards anyway :)

beko, was able to spin up a 5.1.1 virtual device, no problems with that account section so far, so a bit in the dark at the moment
#
swentel
added a screenshot on the issue with the permissions you should see

if you see the same, that I really have no idea :/

so fingers crossing in a way :)

swentel
on the other hand, it might be a red herring too of course, I just added a big try/catch block for rendering the accounts, I don't really catch the actual exception, so maybe it crashes on something different in older android versions
#
swentel
although it didn't in the virtual device hmmm
#
swentel
crap, software can be annoying :)
#
beko[m]
totally :D
[jgmac1106] joined the channel
#
swentel
beko[m], starting to wonder, do you have a media endpoint?
#
beko[m]
swentel: I do. In fact using this produced an output that worked good with bridgy so I adapted this kind of formatting for posting photos manually too :)
#
swentel
beko[m], mm I thought that might trigger a potential exception, but looked wrong in the code :)
#
swentel
trying to figure out if something else might cause the exception
