It's here! It's up! There's actually a 2020 Dementia of Magic holiday wallpaper! It's in the Gallery! Check it out!
If you come from a temperate climate like I do and need to draw a palm tree, you start to wonder how they sit in sand. Like, deciduous trees have surface-level roots and grass tufts and all other crazy stuff at their bases, so you feel you have to stop and study how this applies to palm trees in sand.
And so eventually you find examples and discover they're really just kinda plunked in the ground without really anything like that showing above the surface at all. Huh.
Oh, hey, THAT'S why my Mastodon instance was getting bogus CSS. Apparently they changed it so all the assets and such get stuffed into the Docker image, not on the host filesystem (proxied in). Which makes a whole lot more sense, but does mean it breaks my setup made before that change.
At any rate, glad I fixed that. Now to look into this nifty new WebAuthn functionality...
As a reminder: Round-trip Desert Bus for Hope service from Tucson, AZ to Las Vegas, NV begins in approximately 40 minutes.
Nope, the recently-released v3.2.1 didn't fix it, either. Maybe I should file an issue after all.
Oh, forgot to mention: The RX 5600 XT was returned. Too much display corruption. I'm guessing that, while PCIe should in theory be forward-compatible, it really isn't (my motherboard has 3.0, the card was 4.0).
Instead, I got an RX 580. Now this is working much better. Still a few quirks, though I'm chalking those up to KScreen in KDE. Seems to forget a display exists if it's DisplayPort and the monitor falls asleep, for instance. But, mostly has been working admirably.
Huh, weird. For some reason, my Mastodon instance is serving up bad CSS regarding user avatars on detailed status views. I can see when the change was made in the code, but the HTML and CSS aren't agreeing on how big the avatar should be.
Would be nice if I could find another v3.2.0 instance to see if it's just me, but if it weren't, I'd think someone would've filed an issue by now...
