Some offer very low prices, HostHatch is one example. I’ve been using RamNode for years and while they’re a little more average for pricing, I’ve had no issues. Never used HostHatch, so maybe someone who has used it can comment on the quality of service.

No, it won’t work if it’s deployed wrong. Is this a shared host or a VPS service? If it’s a shared host and you’re just clicking a button to deploy a software package, it that host’s job to make that button work right.

Ah, didn’t realize that was a paid feature (already paid so I can’t see what is or isn’t paid).

I’m not a fan of web apps, they’re much slower than native. Arctic is completely free for all features, so that could be a better choice for someone wanting filters and a native experience. It’s still in TestFlight at the moment, link in sidebar for its community.

Arctic has separate filters for the post body and post title, which is really nice.

Avelon has keyword filtering and also supports instance blocking.

Both have been great!

Would love to see some mod tools added to the app. Happy to help test and provide feedback on them if needed.

Love Arch Linux! Been running it for over a decade now.

I seriously wouldn't buy a car at this point if it didn't have CarPlay or Android Auto in it. Navigation with Google Maps or Waze is vastly superior to anything a car company is ever going to come up with (props to Apple Maps too for making big improvements in the last several years). Integrated music experiences where I can directly see my Spotify playlists or favorite tracks without touching my phone is just something I'm used to and couldn't go back. Having a voice assistant that works from Google / Apple (I know Siri is rough sometimes lol) will always be better than any voice controls a car company comes up with. Oh, and huuuge points to Overcast for just reliably being the best podcast app for many years and having a super easy to navigate CarPlay app. I'd lose all of that and more if there was no integration with my phone and we went back to the awful bluetooth pairing that we had before with terrible UI design and no support for third party apps.

At this point, that's more important to me than whatever engine they've stuck in it. Just give me good mileage, pass inspection and last at least 150k miles and we're good. I'm not drag racing so I don't need a rocket ship lol

[-] fry@fry.gs 3 points 8 months ago

That's awesome! I think there's a newer generation of CarPlay from Apple that lets the auto-makers use the Apple UI for everything, including the spedometers, climate and other gauges. If that data can be integrated into third party apps, I think developers would come up with some really cool things.

I really wish my Hyundai would let me do that, maybe I should look into Nissan for my next car haha. How have you been finding the Leaf? I've only heard good things about it from others.

I had thought you’d installed Norton 360. I just realized 360 Total Security is a different company altogether. I’d instantly remove that from your PC, that’s a Chinese security software that looks like it’s named itself to be similar in name to Norton 360 (US developed but still not great). Any software that’s trying to draw people in by looking like something else is a big red flag.

Security software runs at a very low level and generally has full control over your PC if it wants. It needs to be something reputable. For me that means a few things: how good is it at defending against threats (both known and zero day), how many resources does it use on the PC (I still want to be able to game), how much do I trust the country where it was developed. The last one isn’t a one size fits all and really needs to be person to person. In terms of raw performance and security the two best are likely Bitdefender (Romania) and Kaspersky (Russia). AVG (Czech Republic), ESET (Slovakia), Webroot (USA) and Sophos (UK) are all decent options with good security and performance. All of them cost less than a single game for multiple years of protection so I’d pick one, pay for it and keep it running always.

Install and run a reputable malware removal tool. I’d recommend hitman pro. It should be able to clean your PC. Norton is garbage.

Are you using an app or the web interface? It works on Lemmy, maybe it doesn't work on kbin?

Here is what it looks like on Lemmy: https://fry.gs/comment/116299
