My “one snippet” from today’s IPCC report: “Climate change is a threat to human well-being and planetary health. There is a rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a liveable and sustainable future for all. The choices and actions implemented in this decade will have impacts now and for thousands of years.”

In-reply-to » Amazon Tax Structure Like Something Out of a Bond Movie, EU Says Amazon's efforts to minimize its taxes in the European Union were given a code-name evocative of a spy thriller with British agent 007, according to an EU lawyer, who claimed the arrangements broke the bloc's state-aid rules. From a report: "Project Goldcrest -- it sounds like the title of a James Bond movie, but it is not," it's the name "Amazon gave ... ⌘ Read more

This is an image with an alt text with new lines in it. Yarn.social’s web interface renders it “well”, the mobile app does not. Which is the correct behavior? Is this how new lines on image’s alts are supposed to be? If so, should the web interface be replacing the “new line characters” with actual new lines? Or, in fact, what is the correct way to add a new line in alt texta in html?

So many questions 😊 anyone care to comment?

In-reply-to » 👋 To all our Twtxt users and friends (regardless of what client you use, or how you choose to host your feed):

@prologic@twtxt.net I see. Well, as I said, I see value in such a bridge, but I don’t think it replaces yarn.social’s AP integration. It could, however, be used as a backend in yarn.social: a pod would delegate the AP bridging, and all of that would be transparent to the user.

In-reply-to » 👋 To all our Twtxt users and friends (regardless of what client you use, or how you choose to host your feed):

Also, how would you go about it? I mean, I can start using a txt on my client that is actually coming from a proxy service generating it from an AP account (like we already have on feeds), but how do I announce that your service should “follow back” my own feed so you can see replies and translate them into AP replies?

In-reply-to » I never owned a coffee maker, because … I don’t really know exactly 😅, but one of the reasons is that I’m too lazy to properly clean and maintain these machines. So, I was just drinking tea at home and coffee only at the office (where we have big fancy machines). Recently, a friend told me about a super simple way to make coffee:

In-reply-to » 👋 Hey y'all yarners 🤗 -- @darch and I have been discussing in our Weekly Yarn.social call (still ongoing... come join us! 🙏) about the experimental Yarn.social <-> Activity Pub integration/bridge I've been working on... And mostly whether it's even a good idea at al, and if we should continue or not?

@prologic@twtxt.net I see: I was speaking in the end user’s perspective tho, I suppose those concerns only really affect the pod owner? And, if that is the case, giving a pod owner the ability to toggle AP integration on/off us probably good enough to mitigate those concerns?

And mostly whether it's even a good idea at al, and if we should continue or not?

@prologic@twtxt.net to be fair, I don’t really see a difference here: with the integration, users still only see the feeds they choose to read (either as a twtxt or AP), right? Or this is more a problem of the integration making the network “grow too fast”?

On a recent interview, Neal Stephenson isn’t confident on the future of the planned Snow Crash adaptation into a TV series, but, on the plus side, “there’s some work underway to adapt a book I co-wrote called The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. into a television series.”

In-reply-to » Hey @david 👋 You've probably no doubt seen already (good morning too btw ☕️x1), but I got most things working after you went to bed 🤣 Including basic support for threading 🥳 -- Still lots of work to do, there's one aspect of threading that I still need to work out and I'm quite sure there will still be bugs to uncovered and code improvements, etc. There's also some things to improve with the interop with profiles, follow/unfollow as well... Anyway things are looking pretty good at the moment 🤞

Hm, realized now that the screenshot isn’t as good as I thought… this post (which was not a reply to anything) shows in the “Posts and replies” tab, but the “Posts” tab is empty.

In-reply-to » @marado Am I right in thinking that you are using Yarn's Sync API via yarnc sync and your twtxt.net feed as well as Goryon (now Yarn.social) mobile app? That is, you keep a local copy of your feed and publish it on your website, take advantage of Yarn.social's features? If so (pretty sure) it would be awesome if maybe you wrote up a new page on the website or something that instructs others how to do this? 🤔

@prologic@twtxt.net I never got around to set up like that, I currently use twtxt.net web interface and goryon as clients, and have a simple cron doing a wget of the feed. I suppose I could still write something about why am I doing that…

@prologic@twtxt.net Why does my twtxt feed have dozens of twts, but the web interface is only showing “Page 1/1 of 9 Twts”? Does it limit the number of twts shown by time (show only “most recent twts”) instead of by feed size? If that is so, is that limit’s existence a pod configuration?
