@firstname.lastname@example.org Ah, took a while, but now it’s working again! 🙃
@email@example.com Probably … makes me even more sad. 🤣
@firstname.lastname@example.org Hmm, yes, I see what you mean. (Doesn’t really happen to me since I run a lot of software that I’ve written myself. 😅)
@email@example.com Ever tried a window manager that supports rules? 🤔 Doesn’t have to be tiling, Openbox can do it, too, IIRC.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I just love that none of the big platforms ever give you a reason. You don’t matter, they have millions of users anyway. 🤷
@email@example.com C’est la vie! 🤣
That’s a lot of paper. Did you read through it, maybe find some cute gems?
@firstname.lastname@example.org I wish an integration like this was a standard feature.
I used a plugin like this for a long time in the past, but eventually gave up on it. I have to use too many websites that insist on implementing their own editor widget. Google Docs, Confluence, stuff like that. 😞
@email@example.com Ahh, nice, thanks. 😊 Looks like they were pretty lucky then. 😳
Speaking of the weather, has anyone heard from @firstname.lastname@example.org? You know, hurricane and all. 🤔
It’s been rainy and grim these last few days. This is so relaxing. 😍 Could be warmer, yes, but I’m slowly getting used to not heating the apartment a lot (because of energy prices here in the EU).
And so it begins? 🥴
@email@example.com I can’t fetch your feed anymore. 🤔 DNS doesn’t resolve. This is what I see in my
DNS format error from 220.127.116.11#53 resolving social.kyoko-project.wer.ee/A for 192.168.1.1#38972: empty question section
dig +trace … ends with:
couldn't get address for 'ns1.kyoko-project.wer.ee': failure
Found this gem:
Since I’m not a fan of NodeJS, I tried reimplementing some of the ideas in C. (No Rust this time, sorry, I just wanted to get things done.) So here you go, the official twtxt black metal logo:
Since we’re on the brink of nuclear war anyway, I bought an electric double bass, because why the heck not:
Regular bass guitar for size comparison. That thing is huge.
I still suck at playing it, naturally, but it’s a looot of fun. And the posture is much more comfortable than that of a guitar, where you have to twist your left hand like a maniac. 🥴
dir, three times in a row. 😂
@firstname.lastname@example.org They just use stock photos for their articles. For anything regarding “hackers”, they use this: “Man in dark room in front of a screen showing white text on black background.” 🤪
@email@example.com The bird sits on a sign and at the bottom of the sign, there’s a bicycle with an arrow above it (pointing towards the bird). I changed the bicycle to an icon of a bird. 🥴
What qualifies as a criminal hacker according to one of our german news outlets: Typing
dir, three times in a row. 😂
@firstname.lastname@example.org Nice! Fixed 16.jpg for you:
@email@example.com If that was my URL, it would show up as “someone mentioned me”, yes. (It isn’t mine, though, so there’s not a lot that my client does to it.)
@firstname.lastname@example.org What do you mean? Is there a life without bread? 🤣
@email@example.com Ahh, right, that’s it! 😲 🧓
@firstname.lastname@example.org Hmm, so these were just regular web pages? 🤔 Wasn’t there also a thingy called “Channels” or something, which was “special”? That’s what I had in mind … I vaguely remember this showing news from a local TV station …
I really don’t remember anymore. 😅
@email@example.com Nah, we’re not old – technology just moves fast! 😅
@firstname.lastname@example.org That’s such an interesting read – in retrospect.
when browser vendors push RSS so far to the sidelines, companies will respond by replacing RSS with Twitter and Facebook accounts.
That’s pretty much what happened eventually, isn’t it?
The blog post outlines a nice vision of how feeds could have been handled (show them on the browser’s start page and such). That would have been super userful for ordinary users. (Almost reminds me a bit of Microsoft’s “Active Desktop” back in the day. 😅 What did that use under the hood? Probably not RSS, that wasn’t around yet, I think?)
@email@example.com Ah, yeah, that is a bit older. To be honest, I kind of understand them there. Was the “live bookmark” feature ever useful? That wasn’t an actual feed reader, mostly because it lacked a “notification” mechanism (inform the user about new items).
It would have been nice if they hadn’t removed the indicator icon as well. You know, that little icon in the address bar that informs users when a web site offers a feed. Via that icon, users could discover the mere fact that feeds even exist.
@firstname.lastname@example.org You do? 🤔 What for?
Just noticed that Firefox now downloads feeds (Atom, RSS), which is a little less than helpful. 🙄
@email@example.com Oh, fun with Unicode. 🥴 U+00A0 and U+FEFF are also great. We recently had an issue at work where the browser (only on macOS) was unexpectedly spamming 0+FEFF into Grafana’s text boxes. Grafana then failed to properly parse that user input …
@firstname.lastname@example.org Seeing some duplicates of my feed there. 😅 Also, at least mine (gopher://uninformativ.de/0/twtxt.txt) is gopher-accessible and I know a few others (not many, though).
How do you identify a feed? Did you take the
url metadata field into account (if present)?
@email@example.com My main twtxt client aside, there’s only a little hacky script that I use to parse my
access.log. It’s not polished enough to be published, though.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Ahh, XSLT magic. 💚 I did plan to do this as well, didn’t I? 😅 Never got around to it …
https://uninformativ.de/twtxt.txt, which is not correct. The
www.is missing. Is there something we can do about that or should I extend my client so that it recognizes this as “me”, too? 😅
Feels a bit like the mechanism that fills the cache predates the feed metadata extension, eh? 🤔 (I don’t remember the timeline anymore. 🥴)
@email@example.com Haven’t used them so far, either, sorry. 🤔
