Ghost Commander does have batch rename. You need to select multiple files and tap F2 Rename. Dunno how to use it, but it’s there.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

Select multiple files first. If you have one selected, there’s a rename dialog, with multiple there’s a regex multi rename dialog.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

Right, I guess that tends to be the case with file managers if you try to use these features on something else than regular local files.

Don’t see why not. You can download a database of hashes and compare that locally. Granted, those hashes aren’t “free”, but that’s due to the legal status of such material. The principle itself - comparing hashes - can be foss.

Yea people can look into the algorithms to see how they work and circumvent etc., but that’s no different than with… Anything else. If someone is motivated enough to distribute the material, they’ll make their own network. Foss doesn’t make any difference here.

I sometimes use online apps when I need something specific and Christ that’s like the 6th level of hell on my old slow phone… Tho honestly I can’t imagine how an online app can ever be equal to a local one

@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

Yea it’s not full-blown Photoshop layers in this regard. Still, with the amount of other stuff it has and for the price (or with just small ads and no fullscreen video ads or other crap), I really can’t complain. I’ve replaced amost every other app with a foss one, but there’s no good foss image editor. Pocket Paint and Litrato can do a few things here and there but not much and both seem abandoned.

Ed: Ok so PP isn’t abandoned and is quite nice in its own way but just doesn’t have the practicality for photo editing or meme making.

Cuz they just tend to be slow. I don’t know how these apps behave on a 1500€ phone, but I had a pretty beefy computer at my disposal these last 2 years and web apps are just always slower, usually much slower.

And back to phones, the UI of graphics web apps rarely considers them. Or they simplify the UI to the point of being unusably dumb.

And Paint… Yes true, but again do you understand “phone”?

More than anything I want a hardware keyboard.

No, not Bluetooth, not tacked on, not in a case, not vibrating emulation of buttons, not a half kilo Linux phone for terminal use, just a regular vertical phone with a keypad ffs.

Don’t tell me it’s difficult, when we get a dozen new gaming handhelds a month. They have buttons and Android. Don’t tell me it’s too expensive if Chinese factories can make a phone or handheld under 100€. Don’t tell me there are no suitable displays, when there clearly are displays of all shapes and sizes. Don’t tell me there’s no interest when there are thousands of phone models on the market and everyone is fighting to find any niche to squeeze into. It’s clearly absolutely doable, it’s been done both well and cheap, just the phone vendors are absolutely dense.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

Sony, except the battery, but that is coming with new EU regulation.

Actually cheap phones often have more of these things, although it’s getting rarer.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

They’re skinnier and shaped in a more compact way. And I think the lower models are still smaller, aren’t they? Even if not exactly the compact/mini models they used to make.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

I heard the same, but that doesn’t explain how there’s been phone models with keypads both before and after BB.

Also, I doubt Chinese phone makers give a fuck about patents. There was a cheap qwerty phone with KaiOS sold only in India, and I suspect it wasn’t sold anywhere else exactly to avoid worldwide patent problems. But honestly who cares, just make it and people will import it.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

Yea, and Zenfone 10 is the “small” phone, isn’t it? So this is as wide as that, and much skinnier than usual phone sizes. The assignment said “compact”, not “small”.

You can have an IR blaster as an accessory for the headphone jack.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

It doesn’t if the screen is connected directly to the frame buffer which can refresh independently. Whether that’s actually implemented this way in hardware, well who knows, but I suspect it is as that’s useful to display any static image. Then just power up the display driver for a microsecond to refresh the image if needed.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

That could work on a flip-style foldable. Actually you don’t even need it to be foldable, just a regular screen on one side and screen+keypad on the other side. I wonder if that’s less or more likely to happen, since in the past few years we’ve had more phones with multiple displays than with keypads, and phone makers are obsessed with displays.

A problem is that we “have” to have those gigantic cameras with 15 lenses that take up half of the back, so with that mindset there’s not enough space for both a screen and keypad.

WhoRoger ,

I think it’s the transporter accident from ST:TMP. I didn’t know they can procreate.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

I’d guess different setups both of the phones and accounts. For example if one has enabled Google location in settings, and stuff like location sharing isn’t disabled, the phone will be pinged much more often. Same if you have office documents on cloud, synchronisation with phone book and stuff like that.

And yea it makes sense that an account that’s more active is of more interest to ping more regularly. Maybe also for security too. Tho I don’t know if it has to be an actual conscious decision by the designers of the systems or just some AI algorithms doing it.

I only really watch foss stuff, which should be exciting, but I get tired as it’s always much of the same news:

  • a new private messenger (like we don’t have 500 of those already)
  • a new app/program/distro that does the same thing as 10 other ones
  • a “simple” app/program that doesn’t do much of anything, just like 10 other ones of the same kind, will get 3 updates and then die
  • something for the terminal for terminal nerds that could really use a gui but shutup you dirty normie
  • a library that sounds cool but nobody except maybe some corporation will ever use it
  • announcement of a complete rewrite, which means we’ll never hear of the project again

So I’m not exactly thrilled about anything either, tho for every different reasons

Sadly no, but if you have a browser open, you can use emojipedia.

Not really. Even if you use something foss like AntennaPod, it still makes calls to tracking services. I don’t know how it works, but it seems that’s how those podcast services are set up and most won’t play otherwise.

Guess you can only use vpn or tor to be completely private, and preferably just use web sites instead of apps.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

Even AntennaPod connects to trackers in order to download some podcats. It’s how some of those hosts are set up. Although I hope that with an app like AP it shouldn’t be easy for advertisers to use that data to profile you, but I don’t know.

And wound you maybe, possibly care to elaborate what proxy server to use? Or do all the proxy dialogs in all your programs have one preselected? If not, then it’s hardly “done” is it?

That’s an interesting definition of “done”.

Isn’t AdGuard just DNS? That means it blocks ads from everywhere, not just the browser. But you can’t customise the blocklist unless you selfhost it.

If there’s a web extension too, then idk. If you use say, Firefox for Android, then you don’t have much choice besides uBlock, and with… Hm, other mobile browsers you don’t have any at all.

WhoRoger ,

Sounds like another problem we have thanks to DRM and telemetry.

Download issues with Firefox Mobile for Android?

Been seeing an issue with downloading stuff from the Firefox Mobile app on Android. Sometimes when I press download on files or images, the download never actually happens; the file never appears in my phone’s local files or in Firefox’s download menu. There’s no progress bar or any other indication that it even attempted...

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

Downloading on FF mobile is veeeery hit or miss in lots of aspects, one of those things where I wonder if the devs ever use this thing.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

Most people browse with Chrome and possibly with Google’s DNS, so this really doesn’t make any difference from a privacy standpoint.

Am I okay without a VPN on public networks if I use HTTPS?

I keep hearing on VPN ads that you have to use a VPN to not have your login information stolen. So far I have been using Cloudflare WARP to be safe enough. However, if I am using an HTTPS website, do I really need a VPN or WARP? Will an attacker on the same network as me be able to access passwords transmitted over HTTPS?

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

Yes you’re good. The ads are basically lying, or at least vastly overblowing the importance of VPN. It’s nice to have in some situations, but no, hackers won’t immediately pwn you as soon as you connect to a McDonald’s wifi.

IceRaven, Android FF fork, has this feature as an option, and it’s very cool when using permanent private browsing mode. It makes it less likely that the OS will kill the browser.

Why I'm not getting a Fairphone*

A couple hours before I was on the edge of getting a Fairphone 5 but I read the specifications and didn’t see 3.5 mm audio jack anywhere. So I thought to myself…why? The community has been requesting this for a couple years ago now so why not. They’re already making money on the phone, they’re really pushing for people...

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

In the sense that vegans want vegan food available in vegan stores? Cause that’s the equivalent of wanting a headphone jack in a phone from a company that sells their products on all these promises.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

It’s even wilder that they didn’t learn the lesson after fp4. Did people really just complain and then buy it anyway? How many phones can they sell that they can afford to piss off their customers like this? I just don’t understand how is the smartphone market so borked.

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

You drank too much Apple koolaid

WhoRoger ,
@WhoRoger@lemmy.world avatar

I don’t think FairPhone customers are exactly regular consumer population, and there was a strong backlash against removing the jack in fp4 (and introducing ewaste wireless buds). So either the people we buying the phones anyway, or the company has so many customers they don’t give a shit.

Any chance to have a separated [PORN] tag to avoid blocking all kind of NSFW posts?

Many NSFW have nothing to do with porn. Sometimes are horror contents, some times are crude images, some times are just lazy people who don’t know of the Spoiler tag. Can we have a quick and easy way to filter off all the (very funny but not alway wanted) Porn posts without locking out those other contents???
