The Endless Struggle of Unified Logins

So if I said the words “Lightweight Directory Access Protocol”, do you feel my pain? if you don’t, keep reading. Otherwise, you likely know exactly where this is going to be going.

And for the record: this is something that I’ve struggled with for about 8 months, and I think it’s getting close to the point where I really should just give up… but I won’t.

CVS Is Dumb

Adding Detailed Zoom Images

Remember the time I Added Medium Zoom ? Well as it turns out, as I was reading through Zoom’s documentation, that you can specify a separate URL to load when the image zooms in. I like this, because I crop all my images to be (for landscape oriented) 1000 pixels wide, just slightly over the size of the content area that they go into. This is a serious reduction in size from the resolution they’re taken at. I do this just to improve load times, even with WebP and compression, extra pixels (that get resized to nothingness) are extra data that needs to be sent. And since it’s literally too big to be shown like that, I crop them so that pages load nearly instantly. The problem is that when you click on an image to see it, you get… basically nothing. I (because reasons) don’t have any old images so they’ll stay the same. But from now on, any images that are added in will have a detailed version that loads when you click to zoom.

macOS Big Sur: Apple, We Need to Talk

2020-07-02 6 min read Rants Teknikal_Domain Unable to load comment count

See, I have this love-hate thing with Apple Inc. I love the design of their operating systems, but I hate… just about everything else. And with the release of macOS 11.0 “Big Sur”, well, yeah, that took away most of what I like.

I get that it’s a move towards unifying the fragmented state of Apple device OSes, but still… I really think we lost something in the process.
