Wikipedia is asking for donations again (at least here in Germany). They show a (very annoying) popup. When you close it, a second small popup appears and asks if you would like to donate at a later point. As I actually do intend to donate some bucks later, I clicked “yes”.

Trouble is, that popup appears every time.

Just now, I clicked “no, I do not want to donate” for a change. Turns out, now the popup is gone for good. 🥴

So I now have to click “no” all the time (because I don’t store cookies when the browser closes). This sends the wrong signal to Wikipedia. 😂 I do want to donate, I just want the damn popup to be gone.

In-reply-to » Erster Akt: Jemand stellt einen Blumenkübel mit Blumen für Bienen auf.

@lyse 😂

Gar so stürmisch war es hier in der letzten Zeit nicht. Aber das wäre natürlich noch lustiger, wenn der Topf mitsamt „anonymer Anzeige“ in Sicherheit gebracht und dann wieder rausgestellt worden wäre … 😂

Ich behalte die Situation im Auge. 😏 (Aktenzeichen bringt mich nicht weiter oder ich weiß nicht, wo ich da Infos zu finde.)

In-reply-to » Speaking of DST, it appears Mexico will abolish it?

@eaplmx This is so crazy.

I just don’t get how this is not a transitive problem. What good does it do if only some states at the border follow US time? Doesn’t this just shift the problem from, say, Juárez to Ahumada? Before, Juárez had trouble with Texas. Now, Ahumada should have trouble with Juárez, so the issue has just shifted. 🤷

Humans are strange. 🤪 👽

@lyse Keine Ahnung, heute zum ersten Mal gesehen. 😅 Schade, dass man das Datum nicht mehr lesen kann. Wüsste gerne, wie lange das alles schon so da steht. 🥴

Zweiter Akt: Anonyme Anzeige, denn das geht ja schließlich nicht. Wo kämen wir da hin.

Dritter Akt: Nix passiert, steht immer noch da, Hinweisschild vergammelt. 🤣👍

In-reply-to » Last week was a quite succesfull one: I survived up to and past my 39th birthday, built and configured Jenny+mutt, updated Intex Aqua Fish all the way from Sailfish OS 2.0 to 4.4, and installed Windows NT 4.0 Workstation on a PowerPC machine. http://screenshots.i-logout.cz/BullEstrellaWinNT4-202211_26.png

@logout Uh, the nostalgia. 😅 That is an actual PowerPC machine, not an emulated system, right?

In-reply-to » Finally managed to configure Jenny and the mutt integration, so probably this would be my true start to twtxt. I'm still fighting the mutt a bit though as I always was more of a pine person.

@logout Glad to hear that. 😊

@logout If pine / alpine can work with Maildir, you might be able to use that instead of mutt. 🤔 Anyway, welcome again. 🙂

In-reply-to » Question for the more experienced: Is it safe to manually retroactivelly enter the topic hashes to my first twtxt posts? So that replies would group with the posts?

In-reply-to » It looks super foggy from my apartment (tower building and all – I see a plain white wall when I look out the window), so I thought I’d go for a walk and take the camera with me, because fog can make for some great shots. Turns out, it’s only foggy up here, not so much down on the ground. Oh well.

@lyse Thanks. 🙃 Yeah, I’m pretty high up, but there’s still people above me (so still plenty of opportunity for water damage 😅). But, well, even at the top I’d get water damage, because the roof is leaking. 🤣

The first raptor (4273), oof, I was just a couple of meters away from it – but I didn’t notice and neither did the bird. 🥴 Then we pretty much noticed each other at the same time, I reached for the camera, but of course it flew away. Luckily, it landed again nearby, so it could still make some shots using high zoom.

In-reply-to » terrastruct/d2: D2 is a modern diagram scripting language that turns text to diagrams. -- Now this is cool! 😍 I might finally be able to actually start thinking about drawing pretty diagrams and shit 🤣 (pretty hard for a blind guy to do with any graphical tool!)

@prologic Huh, I hadn’t checked. As it turns out, it uses this by default:

https://github.com/dagrejs/dagre

That’s a) a JavaScript library (?!), b) not maintained either.

@prologic Neat indeed. 🤔

While we’re at it, I just learned through text-to-diagram.com that Graphviz (which I’ve used basically forever) is dying:

This project has only 3 of its founders remaining as volunteer maintainers, and support is limited and may end soon. If you can help fund to a more formal foundation to continue this project, please contact north on graphviz org.

https://gitlab.com/graphviz/graphviz#support 😢

D2 does appear to produce better results, though, anyway … 🤔

In-reply-to » It was a cold and misty November day. Just like November is supposed to be. It rained in the forest a little bit, but on the way back the sun came out for a short time. And then it turned very cloudy and dull for the rest of the day. Mixed with rain time after time. Looking outside now, it's very dark and foggy again. Closing the shutters at 16:30.

@lyse Sneaky edit. 😏 I had to look up if it could be real. 😅

In-reply-to » I felt this weird last time when I tried to seriously use Plan 9. I don't even know even how to reply to someone as it doesn't seem like the original twtxt Python client supports the topic in brackets. But I managed Gopher, Z80 assembly, and paddleboarding, I will manage twtxt as well.

@logout (I’m not even sure if you can properly read my multiline reply with the old original client. Hmm.)

@logout Yeah, none of the original twtxt clients support the newer stuff that was developed in the context of Yarn.social. That topic in brackets, in particular, is specified in these two documents:

(Which reminds me, @lyse and @prologic, that the latter is a bit outdated. We don’t use the URL part anymore, just the hash.)

On https://yarn.social/, three clients are listed:

jenny is my own client, so, to be honest, I never gave the other ones a try. Nevertheless, I presume that they all support the aforementioned extensions.

There certainly is a lack of clients, that’s for sure. We could use more of them. :-)

In-reply-to » Dear native english speakers, I keep hearing this ad on di.fm:

@xuu Ohhh, thank you. 🤯 Yeah, now I hear it, too.

To be fair, the ad is a bit longer than just that snippet. 😅 The rest of it wasn’t relevant to my question, though. (It’s messages from Ukrainian students asking for help/support.)

@eaplmx That might be it, yes. 🤔

@lyse Huh, that’s interesting! Also didn’t know that Yotta and Zetta only existed since 1991. I leared “Milli, Micro, Nano, Pico, Femto, Atto” at a young age from an old book. But not “Zepto, Yokto”. Never thought about it, now I know why! 😅

Chris’ Wiki: Monitoring if our wireless network is actually working in locations

Oh dear. Wifi monitoring is really hard. We have the same problem. We tried to do what he proposes (setting up Raspberry Pis as “wifi probes”, setting up entire laptops, you name it, …), but we hardly gained any insights.

The nasty thing about wifi is that it’s not enough to know whether a device is connected or not. Yes, sure, if all your wifi probes in one area suddenly disconnect, then you have a problem. But how do you test for roaming? How do you test for client behaviour, like “wifi chip $a behaves ever so slightly different than chip $b”? How many probes do you deploy, one per room? That adds up quickly.

At the end of the day, many of our users are dissatisfied with our wifi – and we admins can’t reproduce their problems, because we don’t use the exact same configuration that they do. 😢

(We recently switched to offering Ethernet by default again. That’s much more convenient these days, because many laptops have USB-C: Users connect one cable and get everything – power, monitor, Ethernet, USB hub. Not all workplaces have such a setup, though.)

In-reply-to » @lyse Looks like I got something new to play with: gopher://uninformativ.de/0/phlog/2022-11/2022-11-17--gps-logger.txt (tl;dr: "GPS Logger" does the trick for me, it creates GPX files 🥳)

@prologic Do I understand correctly that Yarn uses https://github.com/gomarkdown/markdown for rendering twts in the web UI? I’m asking because it irks me that Gopher URLs aren’t converted into links. 😅 There’s probably nothing that Yarn can do because this is done here, right? https://github.com/gomarkdown/markdown/blob/master/parser/parser.go#L724

In-reply-to » Comparatively speaking extremely boring. Not many leaves left.

@rsdoiel My main concern would be uploading GPS data to some cloud service. The big question is: Does my Android phone collect such data in the background and then upload it to Google? I don’t know. It’s annoying that I have to think about this. 🫤 For the moment, I’m just ignoring it. (A dedicated device would not have this problem.) Also, use more Gopher! 😅

@lyse I had to think twice what “Bauchaufzüge” means. :-) Nice visualization. “Strecke 2D” vs. “Strecke 3D” is interesting - didn’t expect it to make that much of a difference for such a short path. 🤔 Also, you might be right, basic navigation probably works with the OSM app. The only thing is, it greets me with “unpaid version, 5 downloads” remaining, so, dunno how long it’ll remain usable.
