Is there something on Android that allows me to copy/insert macros? e.g. If I want to insert (or just copy to clipboard) the current date/time in a particular format. Something that isn't tied to a particular keyboard.

"Post-purchase dissonance is an expression psychologists use to describe the disappointment we sometimes feel on realizing that our latest consumer purchase does not fulfil the promise we bought it on. At first sight it’s a curious anomaly. On deeper reflection, it turns out to be the structural basis for the entire edifice. The engine of consumer society is discontentment." https://newint.org/blog/2017/09/14/consumerism-disappointment
@maiki @cstanhope I'm currently POSSEing to the fediverse (and sometimes, albeit less frequently now, to Twitter) and then coming here for the interactions and the discovery of new things. It currently fills that niche very nicely, but perhaps only as a transitional stage? If I was a bit more advanced along the indieweb path, the interactions side of things I could get from webmentions/backfeed I believe, and following others/the stream of discovery - I'm sure there's something for that too?
So many ideas, things to do, things to learn. So little time. Can’t possibly get it all done. Solution: co-operate with others :)
@iona I mean 'large corporations in charge of the world' doesn't sound that far off from where we are now, just a couple of steps removed.
But yes I'd like to learn more about how some of the more positive state interventions (health, economic regulation, driving on the same side of the road, etc), would be replicated in an anarchist model. I would guess that confederation would be part of the answer, but I'd love to hear from someone with some knowledge in this area - all new to me :)
Don’t know much about it – given that the welfare state is probably kind of incongruous to anarchism, what alternatives for mutual aid does it provide?
@mayel @Antanicus The charitable option could be: given Apple's business is hardware, it's aiming to differentiate itself even more from Google/Android as the choice for privacy-focused individuals. (Not because they care about our privacy, oh no, just that they recognise people who care about privacy as a revenue stream.)
Wondering what the difference is between reverse proxying through Nginx and setting GUI Listen Address to 0.0.0.0 as a way of opening up the syncthing web GUI.
@starbreaker Yes that seems to be the primary purpose of the Simply Static plugin - with nice security benefits too, as it's a lot harder to hack a static site than a WP instance. I don't know how it accepts dynamic input like comments though - haven't tested it yet as my actual live site.
Simply Static worked like a charm. Got the doubleloop.net site output version controlled now in gitlab. I guess it’s like a kind of personal Wayback Machine.
