In-reply-to » I like twtxt format very much, for being decentralized and everybody can hold their own data. But I see 3 negative points. 1. not everybody can host their file 2. discoverability is hard 3. lack of encryption

@tkanos@twtxt.net Haha 😆

@eaplmx@twtxt.net What’s the error? I have zero experience with Windows though and I build the Flutter codebase on macOS here normally

In-reply-to » @brasshopper bitcoin 🤮 that's a hard no from me

@brasshopper@twtxt.net Aside from the ridiculous hype of it all, the insane losses and harm to the economy, and the massive environmental disaster that is most crypto* – My biggest gripe with it all, is simple this:

I don’t want the world to see my fucking transactions!!!

🤣 🤦‍♂️ 🙄 Right now my transactions are seen by my Bank, my Wife and myself. I also use a financial tool to track expenses and make decisions, etc. The simple mere fact that cryptocurrencies are based around the idea of a distributed network topology and a data structure designed to be in the open with algorithms that make it hard to tamper with, is well insane 😅 Good for things that should be in the open and transparent, not good for things that should not be, like privacy 😅

@eaplmx@twtxt.net Why aren’t you using our Mobile App Goryon? 🤔

In-reply-to » lol apparently I’ve been suspended from Reddit due to some violation of content policy. However, they haven’t actually told me what content policy that I have violated. How to get unsuspended? Prove that you haven’t violated the content security policy. This is the most asinine thing that I’ve ever seen.

So I think the most interesting part of this Yarn is the concept of a “cp-opt” and the fact that several of you in this thread are somewhat willing to help the project out in some form of “donations”.

Should we talk about what that co-op should look like? How it should be run? Is this something we want to do?

In-reply-to » I ll be interested too, I mostly use hacker news and lobsters. Do you really find useful things on Reddit ? I only see there memes and catch time things but nothing really interesting. Or maybe I don’t know how to use Reddit.

@tkanos@twtxt.net I don’t personally find Lobsters or Hacker News interesting at all to me. Once upon a time I did subscribe to some parts of them both via Atom (via our feeds service) – Using Yarn itself as an interface (I use Yarn both socially and for news) – But sadly I discontinued this, primarily because of “noise”. These two platforms are so big and so centralised that they are effectively the equivalent of a large tree of crows in the evening, just pure noise.

In-reply-to » Every year or so I get so fed up with how many apps I have to restart and reposition manually after a reboot that I freak out, change a million settings, switch apps, and begin the cycle anew.

Intereating discussions lints here. I agree Software should be “done” at some point. Although it is by definition meant to change 😆 I think part of the problem is the focus on “users” – especially in the “cloud” era were in 🤦‍♂️

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci I rely on the builtin features in macOS to remember what Apps I like to have open when I start or login and where they’re positioned. It works okay for me, not sure if other Desktop Environments / Window Managers on other OS(es) have this feature? (been too long since used Linux on Desktop, sorry 😅)

I honestly really don’t get it myself 🤦‍♂️ It was something of course we had to deal with when building yarnd, but really in the end I borrowed the same principles as [micro.Blog])https://micro.blog) where we really should not care about the content, types of content or other such silly nonsense, rules and stupid moderation policies. Just don’t do stupid shit™ is how I like to put it – or your Pod operator may remove your account (honestly its never happened to date)

@brasshopper@twtxt.net Welcome to the insane world of BS forums and social media garbage that has just stupid rules for no good reason (because the few spoil it for the many 🤣) and at the same time those same platforms are just designed to keep you addicted so they can make a pretty penny ($$$) off every piece of content you post (and then get banned for it 🤣)

I honestly can’t say I’m surprised to hear this, not because of something you did, just becuase this is all becoming far too common. 😢

In-reply-to » 🥳 Had a nice real-time chat with @eaplmx today over Salty Chat today which was really nice 👌 I love that two things happened 1) Worked out how to register an address on my broker/domain in the first place, 2) then worked out how to delegate another domain to my broker. -- This was a very good outcome for useability 👌 #Salty.im

@eaplmx@twtxt.net Thanks for the constructive criticisms 🤗 I’m really super glad things worked nicely for you and we got to chatting in real-time securely 👌 – In terms of the UX – Yes I completely 100% agree with you, we’re not there yet, not even close. – That’s what we need the most help with, and why I submitted for NLnet funding in the hopes we can pour some money into building a better UX and especially a first-class Mobile experience 🤞

@tkanos@twtxt.net Do it! The more the better! 👌 We can only improve these things by “dogfooding” (using it) 🙇‍♂️

In-reply-to » Btw @prologic I admire the code you have done on go.yarn.social/types and I'm jealous of go.yarn.social/lextwt

@tkanos@twtxt.net Yeah we’re slowly but surely trying to rip out the parts of yarnd that are “internal” and make things more reusable. Thanks also for @xuu@txt.sour.is and his hard work with the lextwt package 🙇‍♂️ – The reason we did this work in the first place was so we could reuse parts of the Yarn.social codebase that powers yarnd for Salty.im – If you recall, Salty.im actually shares the same messaging format as Yarn/Twtxt (including the comments which we use for reactions/actions, readreceiptss, etc).
