@thecanine@twtxt.net Hehe the problem with low res stuff for me is, because I’m blind, I tend to use my eye-piece which blows things up by 15x 😆

In-reply-to » My mate and I spontaneously decided to go for a longer tour today in 29°C heat. We ended up hiking 23 km in 4:30 hours. I had two liters of mineral water in my backpack and we bought a bottle of cherry limonade each on the way in. In the end we opted for pear limo at the same self-service fridge. What a great invention these small vending machines and self-service huts are! In Germany shops are closed on Sundays, so we would have needed to find an open restaurant (plenty didn't survive Corona) with some detours.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org This is true 👌

Agree. we should parse the form but not output to feeds.

Don’t worry, @prologic@twtxt.net. :-) Except for one other I couldn’t do that with all my other hiking mates. Not even close. To complicate things even further, there were some rougher spots and all the inclines would slow down progress substantially. At least one hour on top, probably even two.

To be fair, when I started all the hiking a few years back, my endurance was really low, too. I couldn’t have done that back then in this time. I went out for half an hour to an hour, then I was whacked. Nothing comes from nothing.

@prologic@twtxt.net This is quite fast, yes. But we both are quite fast walkers, so the speed wasn’t too bad. The heat was way more brutal, especially since we had a lot of sections without shade. It’s hard to guess but maybe 50:50 in the shade and in the sun. Luckily, I wore my trusty Akubra. And we had to be very economical with our water, since we only decided on the way to go for the trip we had talked about months ago. So we weren’t prepared for it.

But we had the paths mostly for us, there were only very few other people around. So that was cool.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Was it tiring walking that distance in that time? Seems pretty fast to me 🤔

It was my first time on that particular terrain. We went through some beautiful and quaint forest paths with scenic views. I forgot to put my SD card back into my camera, so no photos until my mate will send me his.

Now my feet a cooling off in a bucket of cold water. Superb.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I definitely think we should drop the longer form that involved a full url.

Also given that there’s a growing number of clients that support this, I’d consider it pretty accepted nowadays.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de @prologic@twtxt.net I just reread the spec and it seems to be even a bit outdated regarding machine-parsable conversation grouping. We long dropped the need to specify a whole hash tag with URL (#<hash url>), the simplified version without the URL (#hash) is enough.

The hash tag extension specification is kind of missing the same. However, I’m not sure if that short form is considered supported in general (as opposed to be a special case for subjects only) by the majority of the twtxt/yarn community.

Now the question arises, in order to keep things simple, should we even only allow the simplified twt hash tag for subjects and forbid the long version? This would also save quite a bit of space. The URL is probably not shown anyways in most clients. And if so, clients might rewrite URLs to their own instances. On the other hand, there’s technically nothing wrong with the long version in current parser implementations. And deprecating stuff without very good reason isn’t cool.

In-reply-to » Yesterday, we had a heavy thunderstorm in the evening. At first it wasn't too bad, just thunder in the distance and then a few drops of rain for at most five minutes. That was it. Alright, I thought, it's over, let me call a mate and walk to the dairy farm. The heavy clouds looked awesome, a bit threatening but mostly harmless and just beautiful. We decided on a small detour to the home made ice cream vending machine and got ourselves some expensive, but very yummy pineapple/mint, yoghurt and raspberry/basil tubs. Mint was super strong, had to eat three spoons of some other flavors to actually taste it. A few spoons in and then the thunder rolled in from nowhere. So we quickly headed for the dairy farm while eating our ice creams. Half way there the sky floodgates opened and we took cover under a tree at the local playground. A minute later we decided to climb up the slide tower, because it had a proper roof. A tiny bit of hail cam down, but nothing serious.

@prologic@twtxt.net @movq@www.uninformativ.de Thanks mates! Yeah, lens flares rock. But especially for 24 I had several attempts to take one without any flares to more closely match the beautiful reality. I failed miserably. Still super cool shot, though.

In-reply-to » 🤔 Anyone know how things like mdev or udev work internally without reading the C source? 😅

I guess the bulk of what mdev really does is basically:

https://github.com/brgl/busybox/blob/abbf17abccbf832365d9acf1c280369ba7d5f8b2/util-linux/mdev.c#L743-L778

Which is to say mdev or udev:

  • Scans /sys/class/xxx, looking for directories which have dev file (it is of the form “M:m\n”)
  • Uses the information in the dev file <major>:<minor> to create entries in /dev of the appropriate type (Character device, Block device, etc)
  • Calls mknod() syscall to create the filesystem node

I think I can do this fairly easily with either go-udev or libudev

A minute later we decided to climb up the slide tower, because it had a proper roof. A tiny bit of hail cam down, but nothing serious.

About 15-20 minutes the rain stopped and the thunder and lighning rolled past. So we continued our journey and I finally filled my two one liter bottles successfully. Every now and then it drizzled a little bit through the forest. We reached our homes and a couple minutes later rain hit again. Thunder and lighning went crazy. The sky lit up every few seconds and this continued through half of the night.

Right after I hung up to meet my mate, another mate called and reported a few villages north of us they experienced hail sized a bit under golf balls. But he luckily managed to get the car in the underground carpark in time.

Today, it rained the whole morning. This was great since the temperatures stayed below 20°C, so my walk was a real joy. It’s going to get close to 30°C tomorrow, though, gnarf, örks, bwäh. :-(

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Good question. I don’t know. Does it take time to for the rules to get active? I have not made that experience. I set up a rule and it worked 2 minutes later when iI sent a test email.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de I think we should because:

  • it doesn’t scale
  • it doesn’t make a terrible lot of sense anymore

It started out to be useful, but generally is probably considered “small scale” and “legacy” IMO.
