In-reply-to » lol apparently I’ve been suspended from Reddit due to some violation of content policy. However, they haven’t actually told me what content policy that I have violated. How to get unsuspended? Prove that you haven’t violated the content security policy. This is the most asinine thing that I’ve ever seen.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Probably … makes me even more sad. 🤣

In-reply-to » Every year or so I get so fed up with how many apps I have to restart and reposition manually after a reboot that I freak out, change a million settings, switch apps, and begin the cycle anew.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Hmm, yes, I see what you mean. 🫤 (Doesn’t really happen to me since I run a lot of software that I’ve written myself. 😅)

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Ever tried a window manager that supports rules? 🤔 Doesn’t have to be tiling, Openbox can do it, too, IIRC.

@brasshopper@twtxt.net I just love that none of the big platforms ever give you a reason. You don’t matter, they have millions of users anyway. 🤷

In-reply-to » Haha! I just wrote this reply using the firenvim extension :D

@prologic@twtxt.net I wish an integration like this was a standard feature.

I used a plugin like this for a long time in the past, but eventually gave up on it. I have to use too many websites that insist on implementing their own editor widget. Google Docs, Confluence, stuff like that. 😞

It’s been rainy and grim these last few days. This is so relaxing. 😍 Could be warmer, yes, but I’m slowly getting used to not heating the apartment a lot (because of energy prices here in the EU).

@akoizumi@social.kyoko-project.wer.ee I can’t fetch your feed anymore. 🤔 DNS doesn’t resolve. This is what I see in my bind log:

DNS format error from 38.87.162.177#53 resolving social.kyoko-project.wer.ee/A for 192.168.1.1#38972: empty question section

Trying a dig +trace … ends with:

couldn't get address for 'ns1.kyoko-project.wer.ee': failure

Since we’re on the brink of nuclear war anyway, I bought an electric double bass, because why the heck not:

Download

Regular bass guitar for size comparison. That thing is huge.

I still suck at playing it, naturally, but it’s a looot of fun. And the posture is much more comfortable than that of a guitar, where you have to twist your left hand like a maniac. 🥴

In-reply-to » Boy, it was fricking cold with the wind today. Can't believe that just three weeks ago I was sweating like a pig. But the rain clouds were pretty nice. Only my camera struggled very much with these lighing conditions. Basically half of the images totally blurred.

@prologic@twtxt.net The bird sits on a sign and at the bottom of the sign, there’s a bicycle with an arrow above it (pointing towards the bird). I changed the bicycle to an icon of a bird. 🥴

In-reply-to » For people born after the 90s (no one here I suppose), this was Active Desktop: Media Instead of a static image, show a Dynamic Web page refreshed every X minutes. Good memories of the old .com web portals of that age

@eaplmx@twtxt.net Hmm, so these were just regular web pages? 🤔 Wasn’t there also a thingy called “Channels” or something, which was “special”? That’s what I had in mind … I vaguely remember this showing news from a local TV station …

Download

I really don’t remember anymore. 😅

In-reply-to » Just noticed that Firefox now downloads feeds (Atom, RSS), which is a little less than helpful. 🙄

@eaplmx@twtxt.net That’s such an interesting read – in retrospect.

when browser vendors push RSS so far to the sidelines, companies will respond by replacing RSS with Twitter and Facebook accounts.

That’s pretty much what happened eventually, isn’t it?

The blog post outlines a nice vision of how feeds could have been handled (show them on the browser’s start page and such). That would have been super userful for ordinary users. (Almost reminds me a bit of Microsoft’s “Active Desktop” back in the day. 😅 What did that use under the hood? Probably not RSS, that wasn’t around yet, I think?)

In-reply-to » Just noticed that Firefox now downloads feeds (Atom, RSS), which is a little less than helpful. 🙄

@eaplmx@twtxt.net Ah, yeah, that is a bit older. To be honest, I kind of understand them there. Was the “live bookmark” feature ever useful? That wasn’t an actual feed reader, mostly because it lacked a “notification” mechanism (inform the user about new items).

It would have been nice if they hadn’t removed the indicator icon as well. You know, that little icon in the address bar that informs users when a web site offers a feed. Via that icon, users could discover the mere fact that feeds even exist.

In-reply-to » TIL about the non-breaking hyphen: ‑ (U+2011)

@mckinley@mckinley.cc Oh, fun with Unicode. 🥴 U+00A0 and U+FEFF are also great. We recently had an issue at work where the browser (only on macOS) was unexpectedly spamming 0+FEFF into Grafana’s text boxes. Grafana then failed to properly parse that user input …

In-reply-to » Guys, I have a bad news, I went through the twtxt-osphere : - I found 1289 twtxt account - among those 721 are accessible ( 712 http / 9 gemini / 0 gopher) - but only 111 account are still active in 2022 :S (107 http / 4 gemini / 0 gopher).

@tkanos@twtxt.net Seeing some duplicates of my feed there. 😅 Also, at least mine (gopher://uninformativ.de/0/twtxt.txt) is gopher-accessible and I know a few others (not many, though).

How do you identify a feed? Did you take the url metadata field into account (if present)?

In-reply-to » Yarn.social users keep mentioning me as https://uninformativ.de/twtxt.txt, which is not correct. The www. is missing. Is there something we can do about that or should I extend my client so that it recognizes this as “me”, too? 😅

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org @prologic@twtxt.net I see. 🤔

Feels a bit like the mechanism that fills the cache predates the feed metadata extension, eh? 🤔 (I don’t remember the timeline anymore. 🥴)

In-reply-to » You don't want to be on Cloudflare's naughty list: https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/cloudflare-ip-blockade.html

@mckinley@mckinley.cc

Cloudflare doesn’t offer end-users any way to dispute or even check their IP reputation scores. The company doesn’t offer end-users any support at all. Everything is automated.

Great, innit? All these blackboxes deciding what you can and cannot do …
