I am so quiet it is, almost, as if I am not here.

In-reply-to > @prologic why is yarn not in the github.com/buckket/twtxt readme?

@lukas I think this might shed some light on the background. Bottomline, @prologic used (and registered the domain for) twtxt originally—his yarnd pod still runs at twtxt.net—which was the name chosen by buckket for his client, and format specification.

I would had probably gotten annoyed, perhaps mad for a while, too. But that’s about it. It comes to show everyone is, and acts, differently.

In-reply-to > I finally got to code a bit tonight ( https://github.com/stig-atle/ioscenepbrt/tree/Pbrt-v4-support ) . I'm working on my exporter for blender - that exports the scene to the PBRT render engine file format ( https://github.com/mmp/pbrt-v4/ ). It lets you create scenes in blender, then export them for rendering with PBRT renderer.

@stigatle that is an amazing job! The renders look so good, no difference from reality. Specially that glassy one. Wow.

@prologic “Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?” 😂 I don’t know, all I see is:

(#yva5d7a) @slashdot Is this for real? 🤔

In-reply-to > We had the tiniest bit of snow in the morning, but 99% melted over the day. However, as expected our local mountain acted as a good snow storage. My mate and I called it a day quite early and went up there. The main path was closed off with a simple sign, that recommended to use the sneaky trail on the other side instead, so we followed that suggestion. Going uphill we noticed, that there had not been a lot of traffic and we ended up being the only two people up there. On the way back we just went down the main path without issues. My fingers froze a bit in the end, I need to get better gloves. Sorry, the images are a bit blue. https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2021-12-07/

@lyse lovely images. I don’t know why you are sorry, the blue is everything on those!

In-reply-to > Ah, I completely forgot that EAV also made an English version of Ba-Ba-Bankrobbery! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gSEhNPKT9g The Austrian band name EAV, Erste Allgemeine Verunsicherung, German for First General Confusion/Uninsurance, is a pun on the name of an Austrian insurance company. Fun fact: A resident loadly played this song when a bank in Vienna was robbed in 2007 until the police intervened. :-D

@lyse pretty awesome song, first time I heard it. Shame on me, as it is from the 1980s!

In-reply-to > @fastidious The big question is: Is it static light or does it BLINK LIKE CRAZY EVEN AT NIGHT BRRRRRRR? 🥴

@lyse ah, if only some laws covered that! A bit on their defence, neighbours can’t hear the sound nor see the lights from inside their houses. Our insulation is fairly good., and everybody has blinders on, plus curtains. So, not a bother.

The worse is that it brings visitors from outside, into an otherwise gated community. But they come (with their kids), admire, and leave. 😂

Back to default now. As I said before, not even close to ready.

Leaving it on here (https://arrakis.netbros.com/), so you can see, for an hour or two.

Go to https://arrakis.netbros.com/ and see the issues.

@darch I am going to fork it, and run it on my pod to see how it goes. Last time I tried it was pretty borked.

In-reply-to > @thecanine Talk to @ullarah @darch and @fastidious 😅 I'm no good with UI/UX and I think these guys own the UX space right now 🤣

@thecanine my point is, unless we are doing something terribly wrong, someone has to make decisions. We can’t pull things on many directions because opinions (not that they don’t count, everything should be taken into consideration, but not everything will be done). Because someone doesn’t like how its avatar looks is not reason to change the way it looks for everyone. I, for one, prefer a thin border around the avatar.

The shot @darch posted is also ultra pale. Demarcation from background and cards is bad, specially when looking at it on mobile.

In-reply-to > @thecanine Talk to @ullarah @darch and @fastidious 😅 I'm no good with UI/UX and I think these guys own the UX space right now 🤣

@thecanine I disagree.

There are too many tiny fonts, the placement of the hash too close to other elements, and in a place that doesn’t make much sense. The “hamburger” items are too close to the logo. The next link is not properly aligned. The double line on the context reply adds too much noise. The options for twts (only Yarn in this screenshot), are the same colour of the default text (no distinction).

Those observations are derived from the screenshot alone, and nothing else.

In-reply-to > Darch comes from my last Mørch which means dark in Danish but it spell mørk when it is not a name. And since you can't use æøå I emails I just came up with sp_darch when I created my very first Hotmail back the late 90s. Pronounced: dark

@prologic

Technically though this limitation doesn’t need to exist, but I’m not sure we should really change it either?

It would make Yarn a bit more unique. I, for one, would love to use my real name, Jürgen. 😁
