So.. My little minecraft community asked me to enable a plugin to sit.. Quickly I was linked to a plugin to enable this. I decompiled it to see if it was bloated or not, it surprisingly enough wasn't. Enabled it.. Next day it turns out nobody had permission to use it. After countless of google searches and half of them saying "Please install bloated plugin x to configure permissions" (I need 1 permission.). I found it faster to decompile it, rip the permissions out.. And just run that instead 🙄
Of course the majority now complaining that they have to remain reachable for friends and family... By having kept it around for all this time they really only kept up the impression that everybody has WhatsApp to begin with 🙄. Arguably it would have been easier to have gotten rid of it years ago when Facebook acquired them to begin with...
Apparently https://traefik.io/traefik/ has support for plugins nowadays, neat. Too bad it requires you to sign up with their Traefik Pilot SaaS thing that basically gives them access to metrics on your server etc... *angry oldman noises*
As my firefox profile somehow half corrupted today and I can't be bothered to fix it, I decided to start fresh. Lost a ton of tabs and what not in the process though, time to reconsider syncing of tabs and what not, anyone happens to know a selfhostable alternative to the selfhostable mozilla sync server?
So, yesterday I realized that Rocket League now free for Nintendo Switch. Decided to download it and finally give it an actual try. As I booted up I was greeted with a "Please sign in with your Epic Account". While just reading this out my girlfriend accurately predicted that I was gonna close and uninstall the game right away.
I recently wanted to enable respawn anchors in the overworld of my minecraft SMP server. I made a write-up about why and how I ended up accomplishing this https://blog.schoentoon.blue/posts/minecraft-respawn-anchors-in-overworld-for-minigames/
This was their entire response btw... On the one hand I'm surprised to get a reply at all... Even more surprised to get an answer within 24 hours..
So I actually emailed them with feedback. They were nice enough to answer with a picture, which highlights on it's own what a terrible UX their website has...

Recently was already complaining about websites having super shitty multi language implementation.. Oh boy did I find another one.. https://southpark.cc.com/ redirects me to https://www.southpark.de/ (I'm in Switzerland mind you) and there seems like no option at all to switch to any other language. With of course the nice side effect that despite them offering all episodes to watch for free, they're all in German. Guess I'm pirating the special anyway...
Guess I'm building this in a container or something.. Apparently wants me to install npm, nope, nope, nope
So I'm currently building https://apps.ankiweb.net/ to give it a try.. The rust portion has 317 dependencies.. Why are we bashing npm for this constantly but everybody seems to be ignoring this? 🤔
