I have a folder of .jpg's that I want to be able to change into circles (circles of content with a 100% transparent surround) - and want to maintain image quality. The .jpg's are a mix of squares and various aspect rectangles and I want the circle to have a diameter equal to the shortest dimension of the rectangle (to get as much content as possible).

There's Mastodon, Scuttlebutt, Briar, and various others that seem like they might be up-and-coming. Have you tried some of them? What's your impression? [more inside]
Asking for a friend. The speaker on her macbook doesn't work. She has a macbook, an iphone and an ipad. Only the macbook and iphone talk to each other. So when she has a Zoom meeting, she has to use her phone but would rather use her ipad. Is there a setting that would enable this? I can answer any questions. They all use the same AppleID
I had an idea for a project, but I'm not sure what platform would work best as its home. [more inside]
I want to build a few apps (or websites, where applicable) that are databases that can be queried and then filtered. The filtered part is the key. Like Zappos: you search "snow boots", it returns you 2000 results, and then you click "blue" and it reloads only the blue snow boots, and then you click "size 8" and you get only the blue size 8 snowboots. What system do I need to learn to make this? [more inside]
I replaced my secondary monitor on a dual monitor setup on my elderly Assis AIO computer. While trying to set up the new monitor as part of an extended screen under SYSTEM/DISPLAY, the two monitor indicators vanished and were replaced with a single screen labeled 1|2. I cannot get the new monitor to represent itself as a separate unit any more. ?????????????????? HELP!
There are simply too many podcasts these days and not enough time in the day. I would like to create a curated playlist of single podcast episodes. Please share with me what you consider to be your favorites. Any genre will do. Any emotion arising after listening will do. All that matters is that I optimize the little time I have and fill my ears with amazing single podcast episodes.
I use gmail. I frequently receive one particular type of email from a very trusted source that contains links to download documents. I’d like to automate retrieving and saving these documents. [more inside]

Over the last few weeks I've been receiving receipts for transactions from PagSeguro, a Brazilian payment platform. These are not my transactions, and I have verified that they are not actually affecting my financial accounts, so it appears that someone has just erroneously entered my email address as theirs and this is probably not a scam. What can/should I do about this? [more inside]

Starting yesterday, Facebook has been giving me periodic timestamped notifications that I have logged in to TikTok (← screenshot of one). I have never used TikTok. What's going on? How do I stop it? [more inside]

Not that I'm complaining but more out of curiosity, and because all of the advice I can google starts and ends at things that haven't worked, for a few weeks (I actually have no idea how long, what is time) when I log into facebook on my computer I can't see comments, make comments or post anything. I tried clearing cookies & restarting. It all works fine on my phone. It seems like a problem with no solution. Am I wrong? [more inside]
My Google-fu is failing me. A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a fascinating blog about self-experimentation / personal science / N=1 interventions. I didn't bookmark the site, and now I can't find it. [more inside]
I'm looking for a fairly minimal laptop that my kids can use for watching videos and some light gaming -- think Jackbox and Minecraft, rather than Cyberpunk 2077. I've read reviews of current laptops but I'm wondering if my best bang-for-the-buck might be a used older model. [more inside]
Does anyone know of an app that will limit the system/application volume on OS X to a schedule that's either freeware or open source (OR failing that sub $7/£5 to buy?!) I've seen Element26 do one but it's just a bit steep for what it is. Thank you!
