Today headache was forgetting that in a computer I have thousands separated by , and in another with .
Today’s talk with members of #SuperHappyDevHouse felt nice.
Some interesting question was, how do you solve problems in return for money?
Wow, Why Do You Hate Your Life That Much?
Playing Oracle of Ages on Switch…
I’m not enjoying at all the Game Design. Has its moments, but nothing compared with Awakening or Minish Cap 😐
interesting part is that that Jr. is not used to work with dictionaries and tries to use it as an array. Has been an interesting challenge.
My #AdventOfCode2023 has been calculating statistics for manufacturing 😆
Today was processing a list of states (e.g. A from 6:40 to 7:25, B from 7:25 to 8:15) and getting what happened hourly from 6am to the next 24 hours.
Put timezones into the equation for more fun.
And finally explain all that to the Jr.
never used Turbo C++, although I have good memories of QBasic and QuickBasic.
The help was amazing. You pressed some F key on a keyword, and you got an explanation, example code and a kind of Wiki to keep exploring and learning…
haha… AoC just started today and someone had the good idea of creating their challenge on November, so… 😅
Something I don’t like from Advent of code, is that there is a challenge every day. In December I want to rest a bit! I think a weekly challenge would be enough for me 😮
My 1FA is Probably Better than Your MFA
Yep, I’ve always thought of authenticating with Key pairs on the web. We have something similar for Gemini, although that protocol by itself is very hipster.
And the alternative WebAuthn/Passkeys is pretty tricky to implement and not universally supported, although was designed with good intentions for the massive public… Result, (almost) no one uses it
“Congratulations. You solved the challenge 1 successfully! You have obtained 100 points. You now have 100 points!”
Wasn’t aware of this Salty Chat app for Android (I assume there’s one for iOS)
I like trying new chat apps, although I need more hipster friends using more than Whatsapp and Discord 👀
yarnd, perhaps even
sure! I was thinking of 5-8 hours a week and about 15 USD/hour, although both are negotiable.
How could we talk? Jitsi, salty.im?
well, I don’t have the same amount of ‘flight hours’ but if it’s open to learn, bring it on, hehe
Hey twxters… I’m looking for a freelancing on Python/C#/PHP, backend… I you are in a cool project or know one, let me know!
Life is going slowly, and that’s not bad, although it feels strange.
This game is looking nice. Reminds me a bit of A Dark Room.
Ha, this is gold!
Raymond Chen Interview (19:31)
I’m trying this extension to have a tree of tabs on Firefox, slightly inspired by Horse
bookmarked! That guy’s blog is amazing, the interview should be good
I like this micro game so much… I’m always amazed of the puzzles 😀
Perfect Pitch Puzzle - Song #111 1/6 - Piano 🎹 🎵
Well, not in 1 try really, it was more like 15, but cool game anyways
was briefly discussed by @darch in #plb77ba
I haven’t set up everything yet, but let’s find out
I’ll be migrating my twtxt Web client from
The idea is to move back to /twtxt/ when the migration is finished (and I’m able to read and publish from there)
I think a better looking web would be helpful to bring more people, even when the old black view is functional and hacky…
Interesting link of the day 🐳🐧🐐🐍🐸
yeah, when I want to listen to my coding music or something in my playslists I prefer to do it offline with a phone connected to a phone connected to a Bluetooth speaker 📱 🔊 .
For fresh music YouTube from my phone or PC works fine.
Holiday here 🇲🇽 … Trying not to think on work a lot (yeah, we gave a few deliveries by Friday)
Also I started to design a Secret Santa Web although my family solved that with cut papers and a neutral person not joining the raffle. Perhaps I use that Web in the local Geek meet-up.
How is your Monday going?
did it work? 😮
Yesterday I the #SuperHappyDevHouse there were a lot of cool projects.
This is a simple service to listen to music on YouTube
I agree. It’s more organic to make the connection by another channel. On using the web server logs, I think that isn’t easy to integrate, and it’s also prone to spam.
Webmentions sounds good to not reinvent the wheel.
Perhaps the Endpoint should be indicated inside the .txt instead of the HTML.
Anyway, I’ll take a look into adding Webmentions support in the PHP client soon.
I’ve been reading “Shareware Heroes: The renegades who redefined gaming at the dawn of the internet” learning of games developed before I was born, or when was too small.
I’m finding old gems to play and understanding that we have the same problems developing games 30+ years after, although with some obvious differences.
Which reminds me of another Tetris I don’t know how it came to my PC in the 90s.
I’ve been thinking of how to notify someone else that you’ve replied to their twts.
Is there something already developed, for example on yarn.social?
Let’s say I want to notify https://sour.is/tiktok/America/Denver.txt that I’ve replied to some twt. They don’t follow me back, so they won’t see my reply.
I would send my URL to, could be, https://sour.is/tiktok/replies?url=MY_URL and they’ll check that I have a reply to some of their twts, and could decide to follow me back (after seeing my twtxt profile to avoid spam)
Another option could be having a metadata like
that the other client has to look for, to ensure that the request comes from that URL (again, to avoid spam)
This could be deleted after the other .txt has your URL in the follow list, or auto-expire after X days to clean-up old requests.
What do you think?
My bookmark list is growing more and more (currently 600+ links)
Whilst there are some gems, there are also links I haven’t read, and perhaps never will.
I’m thinking of having some way of fade away them over time, and if I don’t do anything with a link in, let’s say, a year, it will vanish forever.
Something similar I do with contacts. If I don’t talk with someone for more than I year, why do I have them in my list?
I remember playing with this kind of visualizations in the 90s. 3D has changed a lot over the last 30 years, although not that much in the last 20.
time_tparty and I all I got was this lousy screenshot: https://www.uninformativ.de/desktop/2023-11-14--katriawm-time_t-party.png
ha! Nice screenshot 😁
I’ve found that my ISP replaces HTTP sites with a “You haven’t paid your bill” message. With HTTPS it only gives an error that the site is not accessible.
There’s a similar behaviour in public places like airports ✈, or even some have malicious forms. I’m not sure if it’s a general issue anymore.
Also,even on HTTPS some extensions inject scripts or hidden fields.
I’ll try to switch one of my instances to that version soon!
hey @email@example.com !
Perhaps your VPN or an extension is injecting some kind of verification before using the site?
@firstname.lastname@example.org you could add HTTPS to your site to avoid external services injecting JS to the HTML. I bought a SSL certificate for my shared hosting, sadly it doesn’t support Let’s Encrypt.
But if an extension is doing that, I think there is not much to do from our side.
it’s looking really nice!
haha, only for superstitious reasons.
I like 7, and in my town the sun rises at about 7am, but makes more sense from 6 to 6!
On having noon at 12pm I’ll research on that… Interesting point!
Here is the sun graph in my town
Ha, thanks to that link I found of https://browser.horse 👀
another crazy experiment would be that the sunset starts at 7am, but the time is slowed down or made running faster so it’s always 7pm at the sunset.
In July here we have 14 hours of daylight, and only 10:21 in December. So the idea would be to adjust working days or whatever, proportional to the amount of natural light we have in that month. Just thinking…
wow, indeed your 24 hours clocks is interesting.
I had a phase of time nerd and made a few clocks, and certainly a physical one with sun rise and sun set marks will be cool to make!
it needs more explanation than only showing the time 😅
Yes, the idea is that it changes a few seconds every day to “start” at 7am with the sun ☀
The day lasts about 24 hours as usual
Due to the Daylight Saving Time, I recall a quick clock I made where it adjust daily so sunrise is at 7am in your place.
Luckily in my country DST is no more, although it could be good and boring to always wake up with the same position of the sun.
After work I should write about this experimental (and unfeasible?) clock 🤔
since last year in MX we don’t have DST, and has been a bliss.
I’d advise to push that to your Congress (or equivalent), companies and universities, using the force of the group. That helped here.
No dogs were harmed in the making of this app
CALENDAR.EX_, there’s an area of NUL bytes in it. I was still able to install Windows and most things appear to work – except for the calendar. It crashes the whole thing. 🥴
Wow! my first version was Win 3.11, and had good memories as a kid learning computing with my grandpa. Feeling nostalgic of watching those screenshots again.
I remember that almost never used the calendar. Scheduling wasn’t important when I was a kid, I guess…
I’ve been studying French, and recently Memrise offers a chat bot that speaks out the texts and corrects your mistakes… Feels weird, since it replies random things and you don’t know how to answer. Although is useful.
I’m thinking that automating all could not be the best idea.
doing OK, still a bit sick (looking for a doctor has been a bit harder that I expected)
Anything else is going smoothly, having a rest of work, exams, playing Inscryption and Pokémon, enjoying this slice of life basically.
How is everyone else doing?
