Answering my own question, the "not yet compatible" apps are disabled, with an option to YOLO it, warning that they may not work as expected.

The more I use, the more impressed I am.

As a relative newcomer to version 16 is my first major upgrade, does anyone know what happens with apps which haven't yet got an upgrade available for that version?
Is it just a case of a file somewhere says "compatible with > 15.X" and the app will _probably_ still work?

Not that I'm clock-watching or anything, but is it the end of working hours yet?

How much do I hate myself that not only have I just watched the cobra Kai TV show, but looking into offline email for my phone (seriously fastmail, sort it out...) I ended up almost installing mutt inside termux...

Me, who considers himself a professional at what he does: "Oh Hai AWS Support, this doesn't looks like it's working, here are lots of resource IDs, and everything I've done, and what isn't working"

AWS Support, an actual professional: "I can't see into the other account you mentioned, because security, but could you double check X"

Me, an idiot: "Yes, that was it, thank you"

I haven't seen much chatter on the fediverse, but I'll throw out my trainer code anyway, in the hope that I might add some in-game friends for gifting etc (there are some good XP gains to be made by hitting the upper friendship levels. One day I'll make it to level 40...)

After six years, I think it's definitely time to destroy my first digitalocean droplet. The only things hitting the webserver now are bots and script kiddies.
Also, debian 7 and php 5.4 (I forgot to double check the nginx version before I destroyed it, but I assume it isn't particularly up to date 😂 ), it's probably wise to run something a little newer... You know, something with native IPv6 instead of an he.net tunnel.

And there we go, the keybase magics have arrived at Octodon

Ahh, the long weekend arrives, but I'm still sitting here thinking "so many projects, so little time..."

I think the one project I'll make sure I get done this weekend is setting up my HC-2 ready to take to an undisclosed off-site location, so I have my own off-site backup, as well as the stuff stored "in the cloud"

take me down to parallax city where the back moves slow and the front moves quickly

Crossing my fingers that octodon.social will soon add the new verification magics...

The playing of a Beatles album over the top of a British Citizenship ceremony seems like a good idea until you hear the lyrics "Get back, get back, get back to where you once belonged" 😂

Ever since I learned that the "click" on macbook trackpads (also the magic trackpad 2) is completely fake, it makes me really uneasy every time I click one of them...

A little Sunday for me today, finally sorting out a new digitalocean droplet, as my old one is definitely out of date now (php 5.4 on debian wheezy? yeah, time to upgrade a little).
One of these days I'll set up proper config management and backups so this is an easy task. Today is not that day...

And now, the fun part - sitting at my desk at home for an hour trying to decide which version of armbian to download, stretch or bionic...

Just had my odroid HC-2 delivered (well, HC-2s, I doubled up...).
I clearly need more techie, nerdy friends, so I can do a hosting swap with someone and have one more off-site backup without uploading my datas to google/amazon/etc.

Now to find a source of cheap, large, and good (hah) HDDs, so I can buy more HC-2s and create myself a home storage glusterFS monster/nightmare...

Thank you, #Microsoft, for sharing how many #Google services are looming in the #Chrome/#Chromium browser. I hope all projects that use Chromium take note and also start removing these. (slide was presented at BlinkOn conference)
