In-reply-to » The Skyrim soundtrack is so phenomenally good. 😳 // https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQeIYVM3YBM #NowPlaying

This was a phantastic game. I wish you could play it a second time. (I remember pretty much every detail, so …)

In-reply-to » It looks super foggy from my apartment (tower building and all – I see a plain white wall when I look out the window), so I thought I’d go for a walk and take the camera with me, because fog can make for some great shots. Turns out, it’s only foggy up here, not so much down on the ground. Oh well.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Thanks. 🙃 Yeah, I’m pretty high up, but there’s still people above me (so still plenty of opportunity for water damage 😅). But, well, even at the top I’d get water damage, because the roof is leaking. 🤣

The first raptor (4273), oof, I was just a couple of meters away from it – but I didn’t notice and neither did the bird. 🥴 Then we pretty much noticed each other at the same time, I reached for the camera, but of course it flew away. Luckily, it landed again nearby, so it could still make some shots using high zoom.

I was hoping for more wet spider webs.

Android killed my GPS logger halfway through, great, thanks for that.

In-reply-to » terrastruct/d2: D2 is a modern diagram scripting language that turns text to diagrams. -- Now this is cool! 😍 I might finally be able to actually start thinking about drawing pretty diagrams and shit 🤣 (pretty hard for a blind guy to do with any graphical tool!)

@prologic@twtxt.net Huh, I hadn’t checked. As it turns out, it uses this by default:

https://github.com/dagrejs/dagre

That’s a) a JavaScript library (?!), b) not maintained either.

@prologic@twtxt.net Neat indeed. 🤔

While we’re at it, I just learned through text-to-diagram.com that Graphviz (which I’ve used basically forever) is dying:

This project has only 3 of its founders remaining as volunteer maintainers, and support is limited and may end soon. If you can help fund to a more formal foundation to continue this project, please contact north on graphviz org.

https://gitlab.com/graphviz/graphviz#support 😢

D2 does appear to produce better results, though, anyway … 🤔

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org That’s right. 🤔 Those sheets are not exactly A4. And they’re super thin, very little stability – that’s the main problem, I guess.

In-reply-to » It was a cold and misty November day. Just like November is supposed to be. It rained in the forest a little bit, but on the way back the sun came out for a short time. And then it turned very cloudy and dull for the rest of the day. Mixed with rain time after time. Looking outside now, it's very dark and foggy again. Closing the shutters at 16:30.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Sneaky edit. 😏 I had to look up if it could be real. 😅

In-reply-to » I felt this weird last time when I tried to seriously use Plan 9. I don't even know even how to reply to someone as it doesn't seem like the original twtxt Python client supports the topic in brackets. But I managed Gopher, Z80 assembly, and paddleboarding, I will manage twtxt as well.

@logout@i-logout.cz (I’m not even sure if you can properly read my multiline reply with the old original client. Hmm.)

@logout@i-logout.cz Yeah, none of the original twtxt clients support the newer stuff that was developed in the context of Yarn.social. That topic in brackets, in particular, is specified in these two documents:

(Which reminds me, @lyse@lyse.isobeef.org and @prologic@twtxt.net, that the latter is a bit outdated. We don’t use the URL part anymore, just the hash.)

On https://yarn.social/, three clients are listed:

jenny is my own client, so, to be honest, I never gave the other ones a try. Nevertheless, I presume that they all support the aforementioned extensions.

There certainly is a lack of clients, that’s for sure. We could use more of them. :-)

In-reply-to » Dear native english speakers, I keep hearing this ad on di.fm:

@xuu Ohhh, thank you. 🤯 Yeah, now I hear it, too.

To be fair, the ad is a bit longer than just that snippet. 😅 The rest of it wasn’t relevant to my question, though. (It’s messages from Ukrainian students asking for help/support.)

@eaplmx@twtxt.net That might be it, yes. 🤔

In-reply-to » I quit Newsboat three days ago without noticing. Well, now that I think about it, I remember again. I was compiling it from source to test my latest fix. So this evening I got plenty of new articles after starting it again.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Oh, it was by accident. At first, I thought you found something better. 😅

In-reply-to » That's pretty cool. Earth now weighs six ronnagrams. New metric prefixes voted in France: https://phys.org/news/2022-11-earth-ronnagrams-metric-prefixes-voted.html

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Huh, that’s interesting! Also didn’t know that Yotta and Zetta only existed since 1991. I leared “Milli, Micro, Nano, Pico, Femto, Atto” at a young age from an old book. But not “Zepto, Yokto”. Never thought about it, now I know why! 😅

Chris’ Wiki: Monitoring if our wireless network is actually working in locations

Oh dear. Wifi monitoring is really hard. We have the same problem. We tried to do what he proposes (setting up Raspberry Pis as “wifi probes”, setting up entire laptops, you name it, …), but we hardly gained any insights.

The nasty thing about wifi is that it’s not enough to know whether a device is connected or not. Yes, sure, if all your wifi probes in one area suddenly disconnect, then you have a problem. But how do you test for roaming? How do you test for client behaviour, like “wifi chip $a behaves ever so slightly different than chip $b”? How many probes do you deploy, one per room? That adds up quickly.

At the end of the day, many of our users are dissatisfied with our wifi – and we admins can’t reproduce their problems, because we don’t use the exact same configuration that they do. 😢

(We recently switched to offering Ethernet by default again. That’s much more convenient these days, because many laptops have USB-C: Users connect one cable and get everything – power, monitor, Ethernet, USB hub. Not all workplaces have such a setup, though.)

In-reply-to » @lyse Looks like I got something new to play with: gopher://uninformativ.de/0/phlog/2022-11/2022-11-17--gps-logger.txt (tl;dr: "GPS Logger" does the trick for me, it creates GPX files 🥳)

@prologic@twtxt.net Do I understand correctly that Yarn uses https://github.com/gomarkdown/markdown for rendering twts in the web UI? I’m asking because it irks me that Gopher URLs aren’t converted into links. 😅 There’s probably nothing that Yarn can do because this is done here, right? https://github.com/gomarkdown/markdown/blob/master/parser/parser.go#L724

In-reply-to » Comparatively speaking extremely boring. Not many leaves left.

@rsdoiel@twtxt.net My main concern would be uploading GPS data to some cloud service. The big question is: Does my Android phone collect such data in the background and then upload it to Google? I don’t know. It’s annoying that I have to think about this. 🫤 For the moment, I’m just ignoring it. (A dedicated device would not have this problem.) Also, use more Gopher! 😅

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I had to think twice what “Bauchaufzüge” means. :-) Nice visualization. “Strecke 2D” vs. “Strecke 3D” is interesting - didn’t expect it to make that much of a difference for such a short path. 🤔 Also, you might be right, basic navigation probably works with the OSM app. The only thing is, it greets me with “unpaid version, 5 downloads” remaining, so, dunno how long it’ll remain usable.

In-reply-to » @lyse ` `` `

@prologic@twtxt.net Hm, I think there’s some edit confusion going on.

When my client fetched @xuu’s twt, it read like this (I’m posting screenshots here to avoid something parsing this as markdown):

Download

The hash I got for this was v6kvlma. That’s what’s still stored in my client.

Note the wrong mention. xuu must have edited it, because it now reads like this:

Download

And I get dmypf5q for that.

This latter hash also exists on twtxt.net, but it’s not the one that @lyse@lyse.isobeef.org replied to: https://twtxt.net/conv/dmypf5q

lyse replied to u4bs34q (https://twtxt.net/conv/u4bs34q), but I can’t find out what the original raw content of that twt was. Can someone show me that raw twt line? Then I can check which hash I get. 🙂

The simplest explanation is that xuu edited several times and lyse replied to something other than the current/final twt.

(For that original twt from your test cases (the one the say “Great, last system update broke something …”), I get bd3yzvq, just like your test suite.)

In-reply-to » Missed the Artemis launch due to a big outage at work. 🫤

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Nice logo indeed. 😁 It was a network outage. Well, the root cause was not in our network, but we had to find ways to avoid the broken path. It would have been a trivial task, if we didn’t need said broken path to reconfigure some routers … Chicken and egg. In the end, someone went into a server room and we instructed him via video chat on what to do. In situations like these, it’s really bad if the more experienced network guys all work from home. 🥴

(Please don’t ask why we have such a single point of failure in the first place. It’s a sad story. 🙄)

@carsten@yarn.zn80.net Rocket goes whoosh! 😅 I did rewatch it by now. There’s nothing like following it live, though.

In-reply-to » I'm stupidly angry because a stupid race...

@eaplmx@twtxt.net Bah. 🫤 I was hoping for some legitimate reason like “if we try to do that, the guy behind us (Ocon?) might be able to overtake as well”. Oh, well. 🫤

(F1 has become pretty expensive here in Germany, so I don’t follow it closely anymore …)
