@firstname.lastname@example.org I don’t know where it came from originally, but it’s absolutely true.
The freedoms you surrender today are the freedoms your grandchildren will never know existed.
“AC/DC” is pronounced one letter at a time, though the band are colloquially known as “Acca Dacca” in Australia.
Is this true, @email@example.com?
@firstname.lastname@example.org It does, but keepassxc-cli makes you type in your passphrase for literally every operation, with no way to cache it like gpg-agent does.

@xuu Twtxt.net has 58 going all the way back to the hello world twt. I wonder why your pod isn’t picking up all those twts in between.
@email@example.com Looks very interesting. Is this a recreation of the original client in C?
I compiled it and followed you, but whenever I run
./twtwt timeline it requests my followed feeds in an infinite loop. I didn’t realize until I sent, probably, 150 requests, so I’m very sorry for clogging up your logs.
./twtwt view win0error works fine.
@firstname.lastname@example.org ESL or ARG?
@email@example.com I do wish there was a TUI client but it only took a minute or so to build gtkatlantic on my system.
Anyone want to try out gtkatlantic? It’s an online clone of Monopoly.
Well, really, it’s the only frontend to a board game server that can be used as an online clone of Monopoly.
There are a couple public instances that we can use.
url =field in his twtxt file Media
@firstname.lastname@example.org Looks fine over on twtxt.net
@email@example.com Your website hurts my brain
@firstname.lastname@example.org As far as I know, they’re still visible in the Web UI. Although, in the mobile app and youtube.com, I believe it tells you that the video isn’t available without having to click on it. They don’t tell you that in the RSS feed, and I agree; it gets annoying.
If we had a custom feed generator that hooks directly into the YouTube API, I’ll bet we could find that information and put “[Scheduled]” in the title for premieres and remove it when the video is available.
@email@example.com Why are you questioning it? Apple knows best. You’re lucky they let you use their computer at all.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I disagree. I think the “modern” definition of the word has a place here. An individual exercising his power over you on a platform to suppress you, not because you’ve violated any sort of rule, but because he doesn’t like what you say, is at least an attempt at censorship. What would you call that?
If there was a rule that you’ve broken, then it’s content moderation. A separate discussion can be had over whether or not that rule is just.
Fortunately, twtxt is very difficult to suppress completely. As long as I can still put a text file somewhere for people to download, I can still post.
I just realized that whole thing started with this thread. How did a post sharing a dial-in firework service in the terminal become a 5-fork-deep conversation about censorship on the Internet?
yarndto not have "open registrations" at all 🤔
@email@example.com Open registrations should be an option for pod admins. I would like to see a per-pod invite system, though.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Of course you can censor people without being a nation-state. It’s just a question of power. If @email@example.com decided he didn’t like what I have to say, he could add a line to the code of yarnd that automatically hides posts on all pods if it came from me. Would that not be censorship?
@firstname.lastname@example.org An NPC would be programmed to find these ideas dangerous. Hmm…
@email@example.com I fully agree, but my thoughts on this are a little long for a twt.
Apple doesn’t care about you: https://mckinley.cc/notes/20221229-apple-doesnt-care.html
Should we go for multi-user and org/user? Or keep it simple?
I really don’t know which would be better.
You would need user accounts for issues and to facilitate collaboration, unless you used e-mail, which isn’t really a bad thing. The SourceHut model works very well.
No matter what, I would love to be able to archive issues using Git alone. You were talking about integrating git-bug or something similar, and I think that’s an excellent idea.
Interesting… I’ll open an issue.
@prologic, @firstname.lastname@example.org, @prologic. @email@example.com. @<prologic https://twtxt.net/user/prologic/twtxt.txt>, @<prologic https://twtxt.net/user/prologic/twtxt.txt>.
More specifically: Will this be expanded into something like Gitea with the concept of users and organizations, or will it stay with a simple flat repository model like upstream legit or cgit?
Also, the shorthand mention syntax has struck again. Apologies, @firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would personally love to see the Git log provided as a twtxt feed. Gitea’s feed situation is still awful. I don’t think anybody skimmed the Atom spec before they released the feature.
@email@example.com and @justamoment, this Gitxt project sounds really interesting. Can you tell us about some of your goals?
@firstname.lastname@example.org I don’t even have Web server logs enabled.
mitmproxyis fucking amazing shit 👌 Media
I love mitmproxy. That and nethogs are my go-to network monitoring tools.
@email@example.com There’s also the ed(1) cloud service,
@firstname.lastname@example.org Because all of those things require resources which can’t just be created out of thin air. Human effort must be expended, risk must be taken, materials must be procured, and everyone involved needs to be compensated in some way for that.
@email@example.com That’s awesome!
@firstname.lastname@example.org I imagine it’s something along the lines of the Eternal September.
@email@example.com This is computing, we don’t get rid of historical baggage.
As you’ve said, @firstname.lastname@example.org, it’s impossible to monopolize twtxt because it’s just a text file format. Also, Yarnd is under the AGPL, so anyone is free to fork it if they don’t like where the project is going. Fortunately, it’s under great leadership and development is steered more by the community than the owner of the repository.
Don’t let it get to you, man. Interoperability with vanilla twtxt is the best feature of Yarn, and it’s not worth breaking that because of one person. Besides, you won’t win him over even if you do.
Who’s going to tell him that the metadata fields are a Yarn extension?
@Jirka@jirka.sdf.org You can’t just post something like that without giving us any details or pictures…
Are you running IRIX on the SGIs?
@email@example.com You could just point people directly to yarn.social. That could be a very effective guerrilla marketing campaign.
@firstname.lastname@example.org QR codes and link shorteners can be useful, but people have been trained to click and scan things without doing their due diligence. Of course, mobile operating systems make it very difficult to do so because their goal is to remove as much control as is acceptable by the user.
As far as I know, you have to load the page in a browser before you can see the entire URL, giving it the opportunity to redirect somewhere else or exploit some vulnerability on your device.
I think we agree here. When the user has no control and is taught to blindly trust these things, bad things happen.
@email@example.com We really need to stop using link shorteners and QR codes, but the damage is already done.
You can put a sticker with a QR code (and no other information) on a wall in a city and people will scan it out of curiosity. They scan it, their iPhone only tells them it goes to snapchat.com (I just checked on the latest version of iOS), and they end up on my website instead because it’s an open redirect.
Granted, my website is a much better place to be than snapchat.com, but you get the idea.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I’m just joking around. It doesn’t really matter to me.
We are performing scheduled maintenance.
Where is the schedule, @email@example.com? :)
@firstname.lastname@example.org This is completely accurate.
@email@example.com This feed is the live chat over at gopher://magical.fish/. Anyone can post to it by participating in chat, and there’s no mechanism to view replies from external feeds.
@firstname.lastname@example.org The 23rd? Why even bother with a tree at that point? We would usually have one about a week into December. They last much longer if you have one of those tree bases with a water reservoir.
That’s interesting, we don’t follow that procedure over here. The tree goes up, presents sit under it. As a child, I got to open presents from extended family members the night of Christmas Eve. Then, presents from Santa on Christmas morning and a big dinner that night. In my family, we’d have Thanksgiving dinner (turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, etc) again because none of us really liked ham, which was the most popular choice of entree.
