In-reply-to » Is it wrong to disagree with the OpenBSD way of doing things, as a system admin?

@akoizumi@social.kyoko-project.wer.ee Hmm, which ones?

I can tell you what I dislike about OpenBSD:

  • Still using CVS. And CVSWeb has a horrible usability, I gave up on it and browse sources on the GitHub mirror.
  • Little things like:
    • tmpfs is not pageable and, IIRC, removing files does not free memory, either.
    • The distinction between MP and non-MP kernels, and the confusion that can come from that.
    • The non-adoption of UTF-8 on the console (outside of X11).
  • The overall negative and somewhat arrogant attitude of the OpenBSD community. Doesn’t motivate me very much to contribute to the project.

And yet it’s currently the best OS for my private servers. 👌

In-reply-to » This blog post is getting quite a bit of attention at the moment: https://cfenollosa.com/blog/after-self-hosting-my-email-for-twenty-three-years-i-have-thrown-in-the-towel-the-oligopoly-has-won.html

Well, I wouldn’t say it’s black and white. There are delivery issues sometimes, it’s just part of the game – so it doesn’t always work. On the other hand, it’s not completely broken, either, is it?

What saddens me is people giving up. Everyone who claims “e-mail is broken” or “self-hosting is broken” makes life harder for the rest of us. 😐 Newcomers will read those blog posts and they’ll decide to not even try …

There was a follow-up blog post by someone else who brought up another important argument: “it’s never been easier to self-host your email” because the software has gotten so much better. Anyone remember setting up sendmail? 🤣 I haven’t even tried the alternatives mentioned in that post, because I use OpenBSD’s smtpd these days and I love it. 👌

In-reply-to » The heat wave is finally over. It lasted about 1.5 months. 🥵 Now we’re back to somewhat mild temperatures (17°C) and a bit of rain. Went on a walk earlier today, which was super relaxing.

Aaaaaaaaaand we’re back to 30°C. 🙄

In-reply-to » Once again it paid off to always be prepared when going into nature. This time the bags brought home the bacon. Well, apples. We ran across windfalls and picked up a bunch. Soon to be processed into apple juice and jelly.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I didn’t know the word “windfall”, so I was expecting some crazy phenomenon in nature, like the clouds on Mount Roraima. 🤣

I’d like to highlight this comment on HN:

I agree with the pains, but the options are not juts Big Tech or self-hosting. There’s a myriad of not-big-tech email providers out there, for example there’s Posteo, who use open source software and green energy. They are going strong for 13 years now with 400+k accounts.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posteo

Please consider this option if you’re fed up with self-hosting e-mail. We need a diverse ecosystem.

@mckinley@twtxt.net That’s probably it – it’s been wrong the whole time. According to my old posts on this matter, the stamps should be wrong during the entire summer (when DST should have been applied). 🥴 So, nothing changed recently, we only noticed it (again) … 🤦

Hmm, something is fishy with her feed, though.

curl says:

Last-Modified: Fri, 02 Sep 2022 21:38:02 GMT

But her latest twt says:

2022-09-02T22:31:26-00:00

So if Last-Modified is correct (it probably is, unless her server’s clock is off, which is less likely than a bug in the script), then the latest twt looks indeed like it was from “the future”.

Big trees have survived, but you can tell by the “grass” how much everything else has dried up.

In-reply-to » I've never heard of Miscellaneous Binary Format before, but thanks to @movq I now finally have! https://www.uninformativ.de/blog/postings/2022-09-02/0/POSTING-en.html Very interesting read, thanks mate!

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org You’re welcome. 😃 This Docker thingy is the first time I’ve seen binfmt_misc in action. Drew DeVault happened to mention binfmt_misc yesterday, too, in a different context. I don’t really do cross-architecture stuff … This topic only popped up at work, because Apple introduced their ARM M1 CPU and now our devs build multiarch Docker images (and we were wondering how the heck QEMU got installed).

In-reply-to » To all my EU friends...

Turns out, I wasn’t entirely correct. According to Wikipedia, several cities tried to outlaw alcohol over the years. 🤔 Sometimes, a court overruled them, though. Also, it’s not allowed to drink alcohol on some trains.

I wasn’t aware of this. I rarely drink alcohol, let alone in public, so I wasn’t up to speed with the current rules. 😅 But to be honest, I think pretty much nobody knows. People generally assume that drinking in public is fine, I’d say. And nobody cares about people drinking “in a calm orderly manner” anyway, only drunk idiots are a problem.

In-reply-to » @movq Do you know how I would find people that reply to my posts or replies or even mention my users? Prologic tried to contact me and unless I found him on the yarn pod then I would not know he exists and wants to talk to me. The user agents would work but I don't know if I can view my web server logs from codeberg pages and I don't know how to monitor my logs for mentions. What about the way yarn does it by added people you follow to your twtxt file and having friends of friends like yarn does it be a thing for jenny. Just an idea

@jason@jasonsanta.xyz Yeah, that’s the weakest point of raw twtxt: Discoverability. If you don’t have access to your server’s logs, then you’ll have a hard time finding out if someone mentioned you. 🫤

In the beginning, jenny actually used to include the list of people that you follow in the twtxt file. This has later been changed for privacy reasons. (You can still include such a list at the top of your feed, but you’d have to do it manually or with a script or something.)

The huge advantage of Yarn is that it’s a server-side application. When someone fetches your feed, Yarn will know and it can tell you. That’s just not possible with plain files. 🫤

(btw, the URL to my feed should include a www.. Since you omitted that, my jenny didn’t highlight your messages. 😅)

In-reply-to » got jenny setup and threads works completly fine but now I want to figure out how to get auto publishing working

@prologic@twtxt.net Hmm, I’m not sure. Do we/you really want to maintain docs at Yarn.social about other clients? Follow their development and update our guides accordingly? 😅 I think the current solution is better: Have a list of clients and link to their documentation.

(Or maybe I still didn’t understand. 😅 Sorry!)
