So if Discord refuses to reinstate my account that was disabled without reason, what happens to the large servers I lead? Being able to transfer power is fairly important.

I still have no inkling of an idea as to what I could have done.

Someone finally wrote "cis het" instead of "cishet" and now I understand what it means.

uspol and removal of rights 

If the idiot gets re-elected, I'm sure he'll come after my rights as a human being again for being trans. He already took my healthcare, which the Supreme Kangaroo Court actually somewhat reversed, but he'll try again. Maybe he'll make it illegal.

For the love of god, I hope the paths Biden has for victory work out. I have to move to Canada (and then hopefully to the Netherlands) if he wins again, and I am not super prepared to do so.

Discord have said they won't be reinstating my account, yet they won't give me any reason they disabled it.

I haven't done anything wrong.

I get to wait for Discord Support to write me back to potentially allow me access back to their platform. You know, the way I contact 90% of the people I need to contact in my life.

Whose idea was it to move important discourse onto a centralised platform that can eject you at any time for any reason? Decentralised, federated communication is important.

Cool, so my Discord account got disabled and the email doesn't tell me why. The way I contact a large majority of my friends is now cut off to me, on a seemingly automated action. Centralised services are so great, though, right?

So I have been doing research on NAT traversal to help users of my app get connected... and all I have to say is fuck NAT traversal.

No thank you.

I started working on the Windows client for XIVChat after the Android client has hit a nice stable place.

WOW Windows is so much easier to develop for. In a couple nights I've done what took me weeks in Android. Fuck Android.

App release went pretty smoothly. Had to do a hotfix pretty soon after because I forgot to remove a time limit for when people were testing it for free in alpha.

The hard problem is finding places to advertise it.

venting about multicast on android 

Multicast on Android is a disaster. I know my broadcasts are working, both on IPv4 and IPv6 (yes, I've tried both in desperation). I have two different devices acting as sender and receiver, and they work just fine.

But no, if I try to receive multicast on Android, it just doesn't work. It will never receive. Not on the emulator, not on my physical device. Nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

EXCEPT for the one time it DID receive it on my phone. For one, glorious moment, I thought I had fixed the issue, but next launch it was back to nothing.

You might tell me "oh, you need a MulticastLock"! Guess what: I have one. Oh yes, I have a lock for multicast and a general wifi lock that I added, too, because I will try any random code on the internet I find at this point.

WHY IS ANDROID SO AWFUL

I'm excited that people are buying my app! I haven't even advertised it where I think it will do best, yet. It's a shame it's not enough for a real income, but supplemental is good!

If you know people who play and would want to use chat from their Android phone, maybe show them XIVChat, the app I've been working on.

Feel free to join the Discord linked on the website (top right corner) for help. Never launched an app before, so it may not be super smooth. <_<

xiv.chat/android

It's almost time! Beta will start the early access of the app. I should... make the website. Oh god.

At this point, any girl I see I just think "I wish I looked like that".

Being smooth is so great, but it takes so much effort.

Anna boosted

i think i might have found a way to boost my self esteem 

am i cute

So mint.lgbt is cool. They host a good Invidious instance (and a bunch of other stuff). I don't know who runs the network, but I like it. I also like that it's gay as heck.

New features for my app start with me updating my protocol document, which is loosely based off of RFCs. Then I have to create classes/structs/objects in the server and clients representing the new messages and their serialisation logic. Only then do I get to actually work on implementing the feature.

I still like it tho

To be fair, I may not be at "equilibrium" yet, and will continue to grow until I actually hit 90 days' worth of content.

Up to 97 GBs in my Mastodon bucket. I have a cron job removing content older than 90 days, but I just ran it manually to make sure.
