In-reply-to » That heat is driving me crazy. Do I have a fever? Is everything ok? Feels like my head is on fire. 🥵

@movq@www.uninformativ.de I hear you. We had a full day outside with the scouts. A scouting game in the morning to early afternoon. Luckily, I had a station in the forest. Then cake in the afternoon, barbecue and salad in the evening. But 33°C were just totally terrible. The sweat was running down in streams. I turned seven liters of water and apple juice into sweat in no time.

It’s itching everywhere, mozzies ate me alive.

In-reply-to » Iceland seems like a nice place to be right now.

Thanks, @movq@www.uninformativ.de, it helped. :-) I’m happy to report it was just a quick storm, no water ingress.

Oh damn, water being pushed in through cracks in the walls? Holy crap! O_o That doesn’t sound confidence-inspiring at all. How much water managed to get in? Any damages or just a moist floor/walls?

In-reply-to » So I’ve been wondering why some copy-and-paste actions “don’t work” on Wayland. Turns out, in Wayland there’s only one clipboard (like in probably most other OSes): The one where you select something and then hit ^C to copy it (it’s called the CLIPBOARD selection). They have intentionally not included the PRIMARY selection of X11 where you can just select some text to copy it and use the middle-mouse button to paste it.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de I also do use both clipboards all the time. I can’t live with just Ctrl+C/V. Select and middle click is sooooooooo handy. Despite I’m considering myself mostly a keyboard user.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de The inlet has to be repaired. But I’m not gonna do that myself. You can imagine how easy it is to get tradesmen these days.

And here’s the next thunderstorm lining up. Luckily, the rain barrel upgrade is completed. Also widened the funnel so that water running along the cable to the left is also caught. While typing, the rain gets stronger. Gotta check now. ;-)

In-reply-to » Iceland seems like a nice place to be right now.

It’s about time to move while we still can! We had another heavy hail storm. 10-15mm diameter on average, maxing out at about 25mm. Oh boy. And my funnel contraption into the bucket at the cables in the basement were dead on.

Two larger streams were pouring out of the now porous looking mortar around the cables. Cool fountain in the basement. You would have thought that the right one was the bad one, but no, that one only dripped. I caught it just in time, not even half a minute later and the bucket would have spilled over. I estimate 60-75l water in total were about to mess up the floor again. Crisis averted.

Gotta upgrade the bucket to a rain barrel until this is fixed.

Shortly after, I heared the fire brigade responding a couple of times.

In-reply-to » @lyse I agree. A night in the forrest, while you are not at danger of being hunted, is surreal and amazing. I still remember the many times I did it as a child (and yes, caught fireflies and put them in a glass jar, and released them the next morning).

@bender@twtxt.net Oh this sounds really cool! :-) I never caught them, only watched ‘em. But I have to admit that I wanted to catch them barehanded this week. Didn’t try, though.

I just returned from another trip into the forest. This time, I went deeper, there was some beautiful firefly activity. When I checked on yesterday’s spot on the way home there was barely anything. But I saw some presumably females sitting on the leaves in the shrubs. I didn’t notice a single one yesterday. Their illuminated parts were really huge compared to the flying males. The biggest was the size of a small finger’s nail (contrast that with a tiny shining dot of maybe 2-4mm max). I could even see the three distinct sections being lit up. That must have been a common glow-worm (großes Johanniswürmchen), I’d say: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Lampyris_noctiluca.jpg The others might also just have been the smaller species. I don’t know.

There were also some toads on the paths. A very lovely evening stroll. I’m very happy now. The dayjob’s stress is completely forgotten.

I really do enjoy that I am in the woods in about 10-15 minutes afoot. The most dangerous animals here are ticks and then come the boars. And that’s really it. Well, mozzies might be in the list, too. Some adventive ones can carry diseases, luckily, I haven’t encountered them here yet. Today, a bunch of gnats wanted to eat me. Yesterday, I had my peace, though.

In-reply-to » Yesterday, I paid Duck Memorial another visit: :-D

I just went into the woods for a bit over an hour. A few hundred meters in and I a found a brilliant spot. 20-30 fireflies in view all around me all the time. I loved it! As bonus, a bat was hunting over my head for two, three minutes while I watched the many glowing dots. On the return I could even see one or the other firefly over the meadows near the edge of the forest. But clearly, most can be met in the forest. Guess what I will be doing tomorrow evening. :-)

I’m now really looking forward to a night hike soon.

Yesterday, I paid Duck Memorial another visit: :-D

Actually a war memorial on Mt. Hohenrechberg, but it always looks totally like a duck to me

It was a really nice hike, there was hardly anybody outside. The weather wasn’t bad at all, around 22°C and cloudy most of the time. The drizzle got me a few times, but it wasn’t terrible. It just raised the humidity. A bit more wind would have been nice, it was very calm, even at the summits.

On the way there I had to kill a tick that I found on my trousers. Those bloody suckers! What benefit do they bring nature? At home I checked and couldn’t find any others. Phew.

On the way back from Mt. Hohenrechberg I saw a deer and hare. It’s been years that I came across hares in the wild, so that was really cool. I decided to watch the sunset from Mt. Hohenstaufen, so I took a small detour. Absolutely worth it:

Sunset

A group of hippies eventually joined me at the sunset lookout, lit joss sticks, played some weird music on a metal pipe thingy (a bit like a single windbell) and sang a sun dance song. Said song had gone missing for a very long time and was recovered only lately, they told me. Okay. Some other really crazy dude told us that the mountain we’re on had been raised in the Young Stone Age. That period where harvests were plentiful and people had a lot of spare time. WTF!? I mean they all were super nice and friendly and talking to them was also actually lovely, but what… err… interesting mindsets.

On the final return I saw another three deer on a paddock. And now for the very, very best part of the whole trip: in the forest I encountered 83 fireflies before I stopped counting. In the end it must have been 500-600 in total. One even nearly hit me in the face if I hadn’t ducked at the last second. :-) Man, this was soooo fricking amazing! Fireflies for round about 1.5km! Didn’t even try to take photos in this darkness, though.

In-reply-to » @bender Hmmmm I'm not sure about this... 🧐 Does anyone have any other opinions that know this web/session security better than me?

@prologic@twtxt.net Visiting the login page would give you something like this:

Username: _<focused field>____
Password: ____________________
[x] Remember me (Enabling this feature will keep
    you logged in, even after closing your browser.
    Do not active this setting on shared devices.)
[Login]

The “remember me” checkbox could be already activated by default. This would benefit people like @bender@twtxt.net.

An alternative would be to make the session lifetime configurable in the user profile. So bender would then set this to forty-two years. :-) Definitely something for power users who know what they’re doing. More dangerous for the average Joe, though.

In-reply-to » @bender Hmmmm I'm not sure about this... 🧐 Does anyone have any other opinions that know this web/session security better than me?

@prologic@twtxt.net @eldersnake@we.loveprivacy.club I’d avoid the inverted logic. Checking a setting to disable a feature always feels wrong and confusing to me. I’d rather suggest to enable the checkbox by default. But I’m with you, an explanation what it does is definitely helpful. Maybe something along those lines: “Enabling this feature will keep you logged in, even after closing your browser. Do not activate this setting on shared devices.”

In-reply-to » @bender Hmmmm I'm not sure about this... 🧐 Does anyone have any other opinions that know this web/session security better than me?

@prologic@twtxt.net I do NOT claim to be an expert in that realm. I’ve seen different things being implemented in the guise of “remember me”. But I reckon the most common scheme, when this checkbox is activated, is to issue a dedicated, long-lived refresh token in a login cookie. I’m sure it is known under several different names. This “remember me” login cookie is separate from the actual short-lived session cookie.

Part 2 of this answer explains it fairly well: https://stackoverflow.com/a/477578 Also, this was a nice read: https://web.archive.org/web/20180819014446/http://jaspan.com/improved_persistent_login_cookie_best_practice

It depends on your threat model, but the use of public computers in libraries, internet cafés or similar is probably the most relevant here, when arguing against activating “remember me”. These days, shared computer use is declining I’d assume. With twtxt being a niche for more computer-affine folks, I’d reckon this threat is not that high up the list. On the hand, you want to bring yarnd to the average non-nerd user, so this threat might actually rank more important.

It’s probably okay and safe enough to remove “remember me” entirely and just issue a long-lived session cookie and be done with that. Optionally, power users or the administrator could benefit from configurable cookie lifetime(s).

In-reply-to » Just bent two clips or hooks from wire for my hat, so that I can attach a chin strap. Now the hurricane gusts don't blow off my hat anymore. Or so I do hope. :-D I just have to find a decent looking leather strip. The brown string I tried out quite closely matches the decorative hatband's color, but it's a bit too thin, could be more comfortable.

@bender@twtxt.net Hihihi. ;-)

Went on a great 20km hike to the Wäscherschloss (lit. Launderer Castle) with my mate. Unfortunately, the castle was closed (only opens on Sundays and public holidays), so we had to peek under the door with our cameras.

Sunny and a few clouds, very windy, my hat blew off a few times, perfect 20°C hiking weather. Could have been a few degrees less, though. We walked through some beautiful scenery, especially when it is lit up by the sun. Really gorgeous views and paths. I should go over there more often. Last time was almost exactly two years ago.

The one steep foot path in the forest had 60cm deep canyons from the flood two weeks ago. Absolutely crazy! The burried post cable caution tape even was revealed. That path didn’t look like a path anymore at all.

At home I had to remove a tick. Those fucking bastards!

In-reply-to » Got a new pack of rosin for my double bass. There was a large bubble of air trapped inside. 🥴 It slowly made its way up over the course of a couple of days and now it finally burst. 😅

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Oohhh, okay! Way more often than I thought. It’s similar to oiling my handplane. Every time it squeeks or the friction gets too much (just the opposite ;-)), I pull the plane sole over my “rag in a can” oiler.

Very humid 20°C, cloudy and partially raining. That was today’s weather when we went into the woods and paid or backyard mountain a visit: https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2024-06-14/ Not very many folks around, looked like they all feared the liquid sunshine. The visibiliy was fairly mixed. Pretty clear in the west, we could see the Stuttgart TV tower 38.55km away (04). But very hazy to the north (03) when a rain cloud appeared.

In-reply-to » Couple of days ago I made a small patch to yarnd (this pod effectively runs main) that filtered out "inactive users", hard-coded to be LastSeenAt > 90 days and not bother fetching feeds for anything they follow. This has had a dramatic impact on the resources used by this pod (twtxt.net) -- See screenshtos.

Duplicates everywhere! Sigh.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Right, this makes sense. Also, @bender@twtxt.net reported the same over in https://twtxt.net/conv/ilupk5q. That whole conversation looks like that for me:

Bender edits in red, notices in fuchsia (probably edits and leaves the message unchanged), and prologic acknowledges in orange. This conversation over here is marked in lime. Yeah, tt doesn’t filter out duplicates. Maybe I should implement that.
