Overall I'm definitely not sold on it yet, while I do like fiddling around with new protocol stuff I am also very wary of the crypto-libertarian ethos that is driving the Nostr project.

@ocdtrekkie@twtxt.net And where are your “messages” stored? 😅

In-reply-to » @axodys I tried Iris, yes. Is OK. I proved to myself that Nostr will not work with just my own relay. Even if the latency is 1ms, all the clients will crawl to a stop with only my relay. It seems it is meant to use many relays, which I don’t like.

@bender@twtxt.net Out of interesst, what sort of latency were you getting with just one client? 🤔

Are you both sure it isn’t built on some Web3 distributed networking protocol? 😅

@axodys@octobloc.xyz How do you feel about the fact that Nostr/Damus is really a distributed blockchain-type network though? 🤔 Does that not bother you? 😅

@carsten This happens from time-to-time for some folks, really not sure why though as I’ve never been able to reproduce it. Please delete your cookies for your pod and that should resolve the problem. I might look at either rewriting the CSRF code or use a different library… 🤔

Sure they were, Netflix. Personally I think they did it deliberately to test the waters and see just how much backlash they’d get.

I also don’t have—nor want, not even free—any cryptocurrency, so that portion of the protocol is of no use, nor interest to me. Have fun, though! :-)

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Luckily, most of the WiFi stuff has been sorted, yeah. So no more compulsory commutes. I might go there, though, to play some Pool. 🎱 😁 But most certainly not every day.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Oh crap, five weeks!? Hell, this is bad. :-( I don’t understand it either how we did that years ago day in, day out. Feels just so wrong. I hear you, I even complain if I have to come in once every one or two months. It’s a giant waste of time.

But did you get the WiFi finally fixed? Or has the insane commute to continue? 😰

In-reply-to » @lyse That looks like really annoying german Matschwetter. 😅

@movq@www.uninformativ.de It was muddy indeed (as witnessed by my hiking trousers and boots). But I’ve seen worse. We had rain for the last days, which is quite nice for nature, so I don’t mind it too much. I can hear the pattering just now. Quite calming.

Yesterday, I came into constant drizzling literally a minute after leaving the house for a stroll to the dairy farm. An hour later I was well-soaked, because I didn’t take an umbrella with me. Oh well. But I put on the backpack rain cover. Luckily, it’s semi-attached to the bag. I think I have to build some kind of dryer rack/stand/thingy so that I can hang my wet stuff over the bathtub to let it drip. Earlier I rinsed out my trousers in a bucket to get the majority of the mud off.

Exactly, we reckoned it is a Kleiber, too. You could have just looked at the alternative text of the image in the announcement twt. 8-) But it’s always good to have an independent second opinion that came to the same result. :-)

Not one traffic jam, though. Looks like lots of people are still working from home as well. Put another way: Back in the day, it took even longer to get to the office due to bad traffic! Oof.

Good timing, it started to drizzle when we were nearly home again. Other than that the weather was a gray soup. My camera had a hard time with long exposures in this darkness.

We came across a section that was heavily harvested. 18 and 19 show 3.5 to 4 meter tall piles of logs. Several hundred meters were lined with stack after stack. On the one hand it was cool to stand next to it a big heap but also quite sad at the same time.

Hard to believe, but 13 and 14 is the same tree. We reckon that is a birch because of the white bark, but this cobble stone texture (for the lack of a better term) at the bottom doesn’t really look a birch at all. Neither of us has seen that before.
