In-reply-to > I finally got to code a bit tonight ( https://github.com/stig-atle/ioscenepbrt/tree/Pbrt-v4-support ) . I'm working on my exporter for blender - that exports the scene to the PBRT render engine file format ( https://github.com/mmp/pbrt-v4/ ). It lets you create scenes in blender, then export them for rendering with PBRT renderer.

@stigatle That look cool 😎 – Way over my head though 😂

In-reply-to > We had the tiniest bit of snow in the morning, but 99% melted over the day. However, as expected our local mountain acted as a good snow storage. My mate and I called it a day quite early and went up there. The main path was closed off with a simple sign, that recommended to use the sneaky trail on the other side instead, so we followed that suggestion. Going uphill we noticed, that there had not been a lot of traffic and we ended up being the only two people up there. On the way back we just went down the main path without issues. My fingers froze a bit in the end, I need to get better gloves. Sorry, the images are a bit blue. https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2021-12-07/

@lyse That is Soo cool ❄️☃️

Oh my 🤦‍♂️ Heaven forbid people should have different opinions oh my 😳 😆

In-reply-to > @prologic 5 versions behind, but damn, there is something about that color scheme and square profile pictures with rounded edges, no outline and that theme in general, that just makes it look great! 👏

@thecanine I agree 👌 It does look great 🤣 And fortunately @laz can preserve it as a proper first-class theme and just set the -t/--theme option on his pod 😅

In-reply-to > @prologic Here's the thing I've seen from the wonders of doing IT support for people, and hence seeing things like where they browse news and what emails they get: People are fed a completely distorted view of reality. And if you're seeing that constant stream of awful, and someone says "but you can do your part to save us for $x"... a lot of otherwise very rational people will do it without a second thought.

@ocdtrekkie This sadly very true. There is a technical term for this I think – Apathy? It comes in all forms. So many in the world and society at large are just blinded by the rubbish that’s thrown at them and there is a distinct lack of “critical thinking” and “common sense”.

But… We have to try…

@eldersnake Right! 😅


#y3lrmdq

I would like to propose that we form new nouns:

  • Pod Operator – Someone that operates one or mods Yarn.social pods.
  • A Yarner – Someone that uses a Yarn.social pod or compatible client to participate in Yarns.

I’d really like to avoid us referring to things as “Owner”, “User”, “Administrator” and so on 😅

In-reply-to > @prologic That's another thing I find interesting. He could have simply funded Gab. They love him over there. They too are using a fork of Mastodon I believe, except legally.

@eldersnake Yeah that’s exactly right. Gab.social is using Mastodon. The only other thing I know about Gab is they got themselves banned internally at the Mastodon codebase level as a hardcoded ban (I don’t recall why or the details).

But yeah I agree with you, it must be about having total control. Plus if you’re just going to use your “Users” as your “Product” this is a recipe for disaster 🤦‍♂️

@eldersnake And I’m willing to bet that it will be just as polarizing, driven by “edgagement” and suffer from the same types of problems plagues by “echo chambers”. They’ll have to come up with all kinds of crazy ass policies to “police” their platform and end up in exactly the same situation that caused Trump’s ban from Twitter and Facebook in the first place.

They will eventually be hypocrites. I can’t wait!

In-reply-to > @prologic Yup 😥

OMFG 😳

How about this mother fuckers!

DO NOT TRACK literally means DO NOT TRACK me!

How hard is it? Do we not understand the words:

  • Do Not
  • Track

Why is this so hard to understand? What’s there to be confused about? What’s there to have “consensus” over? Seriously 🤦‍♂️

In-reply-to > Trump social media firm says it has raised $1bn - BBC News

@eldersnake So in other words, another privacy eroding piece of garbage that users their “users” as the product, selling their “data” and “metadata” to advertising to profit off of and shove advertisements down people’s throats 😳 – When are we going to learn as a society that this kind of Business Model is utterly broken, and *especially Social Media done this way leads to all kinds of problems (the evidence speaks for itself) 🤦‍♂️


#q24wesa

Trump social media firm says it has raised $1bn - BBC News

How da fuq?! 😳 How do you raise so much money for the most stupid idiotic thing ever?!

Mr Trump announced plans to launch Truth Social earlier this year, saying it would allow conversation “without discrimination on the basis of political ideology”.

Bahahahahahahaha 😂 I’ll believe this when I see it (of course I will never join! 😅 so I’ll never know if true or just utter bullshit! 🤣)

In-reply-to > While everyone is on Winter, pretty much (we have blizzards in Hawaii!), our Autumn might finally be here.

@eldersnake

Got that UPS in the nick of time then!

Yup 🤣 – Although based on the last storm we had a few day ago, there isn’t a lot I can do about the stupid NBN Node losing power or the fucking Coppy last-mile VDSL bulshit get affected by static and interference 😢

In-reply-to > @prologic > Technically though this limitation doesn’t need to exist, but I’m not sure we should really change it either?

@fastidious So the regex just needs to be updated to support Unicode and to have the same set of rules, namely:

  • Must start with a letter – Even if that letter is in another language
  • Must only contain letters, numbers, underscores and dashes
  • Must be no longer than 15 characters long

I’m sure we can make this happen and support Username/Feed names in other languages! 😅 👌

In-reply-to > @prologic > Technically though this limitation doesn’t need to exist, but I’m not sure we should really change it either?

@fastidious In that case then, let’s explore this…

Some questions:

  • Will most file systems handle this okay as the feed’s filename and avatar filenames?
  • Is this supported in the URI spec so URLs for feeds will still work?
  • anything else I might be missing? 🤔

Someone willing to muck with the regex and give this a go? 😂

In-reply-to > Also @fastidious -- There is no reason whatsoever we can't release yarnd v1.0 now. We are not making any backwards incompatible changes whatsoever, and in fact I don't really like building software that breaks the world anyway (I try really hard. not to). So we can release v1 -- Maybe as a #2021 Xmas present to us all 😅

From IRC:

[10:02:05] Quark coughs softly.
[10:03:18] Quark taps the mike. "Hello" (hello echoes) "Testing, 1, 2, 3" (screeching feedback is heard).
[10:27:20]  <prologic> Hello!
[10:27:21]  <prologic> :D
[10:27:28] prologic pretending to do work here
[10:27:29]  <prologic> ;)
[10:27:36]  <Quark> :-)
[10:29:33]  <Quark> For v1.0, it would be nice to have the inject working, and perhaps the new timeline, and some UI/UX refinaments, maybe? Of course, nothing is holding off that slight bump, anyway.
[10:30:12]  <prologic> I agree
[10:30:18]  <prologic> And if that's what we want to do then let's do it
[10:30:22]  <prologic> We can create a v1 milestone
[10:30:30]  <prologic> And come up with a list of things we want to see before we do a v1 release
[10:30:39]  <prologic> I'm fine with that, in fact that's a good thing 👌

@fastidious What did you mean them? 🤔 I think you’re missing my point also 😂

Issues will always exist at one time or another…

My point is that; since we use semantic versioning and “master is green” models, there is no reason not to release v1 👌
