In-reply-to » i am curious why we only get 5 twts in yarn when they have several more on the feed. so something isnt parsing right.

@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.

In-reply-to » @kdx: I suggest you to try twtwt client, it's also written in C: https://github.com/win0err/twtwt

@win0error@kolesnikov.se 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.

In-reply-to » Mmhh I thought I can use SONARR to automatically download news shows from the state funded public tv channels, but no, I can't. That's a bummer. Looking for another solution now. Maybe some rss downloader running in the background? TubeSync is nice, but only for YouTube.

@carsten@yarn.zn80.net Link? yt-dlp supports nearly 2000 sites. I’m sure you could stitch something together, perhaps with ratt and a cron job.

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.

In-reply-to » Why, oh why, does YouTube include upcoming videos in RSS feeds? “This video premiers in 21 hours.” Oohhhhhhkay. I will long have forgotten about it by then, thank you very much.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.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.

In-reply-to » @prologic unless you intend to become a nation-state, you can't really censor?

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci 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?

In-reply-to » @prologic and @justamoment, this Gitxt project sounds really interesting. Can you tell us about some of your goals?

@prologic@twtxt.net

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.

In-reply-to » @prologic @justamoment Yet another unpronouncable project name, congrats. :-D The content column is way too narrow in my opinion, I basically have to horizontally scroll all diffs. Also the log view could benefit from a much wider view so that commit subjects are not split into several lines. That would help readability. All in all, way too much waste of screen space in my mind, but that might be inherited from legit, I don't know. I wonder how the twtxt part pans out, currently I don't see how that helps and simplifies any workflows. Let's see. Happy hacking!

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.

@prologic@twtxt.net 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.

In-reply-to » I hate to be the one that instigates and continues to make true the saying "the few spoil it for the many", but off the back of this thread; I have to ask...

As you’ve said, @prologic@twtxt.net, 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.

In-reply-to » Almost MIPS-only session today! Actually, I also briefly ran my PowrBook G4 and the Gemini PDA in attempt to fix my Pebble. But mostly the SGI O2 and the Indigo, too!

@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?

In-reply-to » 2022 is about to end, and there are still official services that send SMS texts to people telling them to follow links to https://bit.ly/somewhere . Educating people against phishing gets hard, when services' customers are educated like this...

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci 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.

@marado@twtxt.net 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.

In-reply-to » @prologic An entire month of looking at presents that you’re not allowed to open? That’s torture. 😂

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.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.
