Does the Search function on cppreference.com always use DDG? 🤔
IIRC search used to be internal but switched to external engine at some point.
Aside: Compiler Explorer's "Search on Cppreference" sends the query directly to the cppreference wiki's search engine, which I like except it always results in a list of topics "containing" the search term and won't take you directly to the topic page even if the term is very specific.
Looking for a good integrated microphone, good software support, without having to pass through to Windows, or good performance without dedicated software support. Max £120~ preferably. Arriving before Christmas if possible, but not critical. Preferably wired.
Thanks to anyone who can help!
Edit2: Solved! Thanks everyone!
#Blind #Microsoft #excel users and others who, for whatever reason, only use the keyboard, NOT THE MOUSE: How the hell do I tell Excell to continue a pattern in a column without selecting it and clicking on the bottom left side of the screen or whatever?
Let's say I have a column with 1 in A1, 2 in A2, 3 in A3, so forth, and want that to go on for 150 cells or so. How the hell do I do it? Because I know I used to know, but I cannot find it.
It's not control+d. That just fills the whole column with 1's. It's not copy-paste; that does adjust properly for formulas, but for this, it doesn't. There is surely an option somewhere in the menus, but I cannot find it.
Alternatively, I'd also be happy to learn of ways to do this in #OpenOffice #Calc, so long as they are keyboard-only and accessible. LibreOffice doesn't work all that well here, at least Writer doesn't, but I could double-check if that extends to other programs.

Edit: a couple folks suggested using formulas for this, adding so the first cell would be 1, the second A1 +1, etc. That works quite well for most use cases! It would mean the order of the numbers would stay the same when reordering the table though, so if I was using this to autocomplete a list of years, then sold by the comumn Income ... bam, the income of each year's not right anymore.
Also suggested was Home>Fill>Series. I do not see a Series option in the Fill menu at all, Bewilderingly. I'll try to switch my language to English to see if that's the issue, but I pressed all the things, so pretty sure it's not there for me in Office 365. Could someone with that version check whether it works for them?
Edit2: I figured out how to get to the series option! Turns out it was there, I just didn't realise I had to select the right type of series. :ms_facepalm: For those curious, for the Slovenian version, that's Alt +N, FI, V, Enter.
One of the negative results of following #hashtags is that sometimes a #toot appears in your #home #timeline that is not in a #language that you understand. How do you deal with such #toots? Do you mute the account; do you block the account; or do you take some other action?
Females of the Fediverse, when you're in a video chat with someone using a device where the camera is above the screen (most laptops & phones), does it feel like they are looking at your chest?
For context, I work remotely and I'm trying to understand the post-covid video chat etiquette. Are people more comfortable with no eye-contact chats nowadays? And specifically, is there a gender dimension? Feel free to share, I'm looking for diverse perspectives.
I just installed "YouTube Viewer", aka Firefox, because ad blocks. I don't know how much it helps, but giving it a shot.
Anyway, my question is, how can I tell if a Firefox window is "private"? I don't see any *visual* difference between a "window" and a "private window".
For example, in Edge, a private window has a blue label "InPrivate" in the toolbar. Likewise, Chrome puts the label "Incognito" in the toolbar.
seeing several pages of failed jobs for remotestatusdelete. anyone know what's happening?
laravel horizon shows this
`ErrorException: Attempt to read property "status_count" on null in /opt/pixelfed/app/Jobs/StatusPipeline/RemoteStatusDelete.php:84`
Ok folks, I have a Mastodon question:
Is there any way to hide boosts if I already follow the account who made the boosted toot?
Bonus question: is it possible to hide boosts if somebody else I follow already boosted it?
I do not want to hide boosts from people I follow in general (because I only follow awesome people), but sometimes I see toots 5 times, which is a bit much.
A question for #mastodaoine
Has anyone taken a cat on the Liverpool-Belfast ferry, or on a long train journey?
My catsitting solution for xmas has fallen through, and I'm thinking of bringing the little guy with me from London to Belfast. Trying to think through the relevant issues, and any advice or experience would be much appreciated
Star Trek TNG fans - your recommendations please.
I would very much like to watch some documentaries and other videos all about the making of ST:TNG - all the history, backstage stuff, production, models, music, interviews, cast, all the stuff.
I'm off to do my own research and see what I can find for myself.
In the meantime, if you have any recommendations - free is good, obviously, but happy to pay - please do send your thoughts my way.
Anyone running an #Immich server? How reliable is #selfhosting for photo storage? I have very valuable memories and I cannot afford to lose them but as my backup piles up so are the monthly costs and I feel like setting up a #homeserver would be financially better down the road.
This turns out to be more complicated that I've thought - as most search results use NextCloud's inbuilt web app instead...
Well folks, it's time. I need a SAD/sunlight therapy lamp to get me out of bed in the morning.
Does Mastodon have any favorites?
ETA: I don't actually have SAD! But I don't currently see the sun during the workweek and because of my insomnia meds I need all the help getting out of bed that I can get hehe.
Does anyone know what this number/code signifies on Knebworth Rd, London N16: 9684 N.N.S.?
There is another with the same N.S.S. suffix in Notting Hill, which happens to be just below a ghost sign. This could indicate they are site markers for an outdoor advertising company, but that is currently just speculation. .
Answers on a postcard, or in a reply, and please boost to increase reach...
Does anyone have any suggestions for accounts to follow who don't focus on injustice or politics? I need to balance my feed out with something a little lighter -- I follow mostly the former types of accounts and just honestly need some humor or art or good news or just **something** else. I don't want to start avoiding Mastodon because I'm afraid of the anger or sadness it can cause.
Why do I still see posts in languages that I did not select in "Preferences > Other > Public timelines > Filter languages" when browsing, pinning, or subscribing to hashtags? Did I miss something about how it works or is this a bug?
There's this issue  but I don't know if the dev's see this as a bug or if they think it's normal.
For me, hashtags searches query the federated (i.e. public) timeline and therefore should be filtered.
Kennt jemand von euch ein schönes Gemeinschaftsgartenprojekt in #Schöneweide?
Unser neuer Balkon ist zu klein für alle Pflanzen. 3 x Gartenhibiskus und 3 x Feigenbäumchen brauchen ein neues Zuhause. Würde sie aber schon mal gerne hin und wieder besuchen wollen.
I'm looking for someone to help me with an #Airtable base I've created. I have tasks that have a % field to show progress toward completion, I'd like to have that pull from another table in the base to tally the % of progress based on the # of subtasks completed. I feel pretty sure this would be relatively easy to do for someone who knows Airtable well. I can pay someone (not much!) for help with this.
Has anyone spent some time being fond of code syntax highlighting themes and can point me anywhere I could read stuff about it, like maybe how color combinations work best, accessibility concerns, or maybe some science about how light/dark mode affects productivity and whatnot 😄
If I absolutely have to use #whatsapp what would be the safest and most private way?
I don't want to have it on my phone resulting in some colleagues texting me, so ideally I need a way that only people I want to get in touch with appears on the whatsapp list.
Ich bin für meine Kinder auf der Suche nach zwei identischen gut erhaltenen Notebooks, die günstig abzugeben sind. Müssen nicht großartig was können. Ubuntu oder so sollte stabil drauf laufen können und deutsches Tastatur-Layout ist ein Muss. Falls jemand zufällig was rumliegen hat, bitte gerne melden. Tipps für vertrauenswürdige Shops für gebrauchte Hardware sind ebenfalls willkommen. Bitte auch gerne teilen. #askmastodon
What is the respectful protocol for quoting someone’s #Mastodon post in a blog post?
I have seen posts, especially questions in groups, that I feel like writing a blog post on, usually because I can't condense what I want to say into 500 characters.
However, do I:
• Share OP name or keep anonymous?
• Ask for consent prior to writing?
• Paraphrase the post and don't quote OP?
Avez-vous déjà fait de l'archivage de mail (pas de la sauvegarde) ? vous auriez des billes sur la question ? Quelque chose qui ne soit pas forcément spécifique à un MUA.
is the pixelfed directory submission not working? after many days still showing as waiting for approval. mades changes and resubmitted today. anyone know why it would be removed in the first place?
We're curious to hear👂:
Does anyone know of any research out there about the *language* of AI-generated disinformation? How does it differ from that of human-generated disinformation, if at all? What modalities (written, spoken, visual) have been studied? And so on and so forth...
Thanks in advance!
Now that I'm more comfortable with #federation, I am enamoured with how much more natural it feels to share and connect on the #fediverse. Hence I'm considering migrating from Squarespace to a federated blog.
Can someone explain to me the ev credit that many (people, media, etc) deduct from prices? I don't think it works that way since it's mostly for tax purpose. Just another way to mislead consumers. Am I misunderstanding it?
Would anyone mind sharing their experience with Mastodon's integrated LibreTranslate/DeepL post translation? I'm curious from both an admin and user point of view. #AskMastodon
instance admins should be aware of the following major issues with pixelfed. the web version have been neglected. timeline feed much slower and any mute of account will completely break individual timelines
