In-reply-to » Still undecided between TiddlyWiki, DokuWiki, Bear, Benotes, Memos, my blog software, standardnotes, apple notes and more. I like them all quite a bit, but standardnotes, the only one that has reall multiplatform is so fucking complicated to host on your own and then they have this stupid offline subscription thing that allows rich text or the block editor that works like notion. I also found codex docs which is really really nice. Unfortunately they lack proper authentication. 1 / 2

I started with Evernote, but for quick notes I went through TiddlyWiki and ended with a self-written link blog, which uses bookmarklet for input and stores everything in a RSS file. This way I am able to access my notes with a RSS reader app.

For a “pile of knowledge”, I love to use TiddlyWiki though.

In any case, everyone has a different workflow with different requirements.

In-reply-to » @prologic omg yes! They are both ultra-right-wing assholes! The worst of the worst! Please tell me you don't listen to these guys' brain poison?

But @prologic@twtxt.net I hope you don’t give up re: yarn. It’s still the best free speech alternative there is and everyone is in total control of what they see, interact with all without the algorithm bullshit. Yes there is the issue of not being able to have reasonable discussions in general these days, though I feel the usual social platforms have fueled this. Hopefully one day that might change.

In-reply-to » In yarnd one can block certain URLs. Is there a way to do the same in yarns, @prologic? If so, can you please add https://lyse.isobeef.org/user/lyse/twtxt.txt, http://lyse.isobeef.org and https://lyse.isobeef.org to the yarns blacklist? Especially the first URL spams my error log every hour. It might also be useful to do some housekeeping with other crap URLs: https://search.twtxt.net/stats/feeds/discovered?l=30&q=lyse&s=-failures

Also, @darch’s yarnd is requesting my /twtxt-2022-08.txt every few minutes (interval varies between ~2-5 minutes). Nothing seems to be cached, though, because 200 is sent all the time. Any idea what’s going on here and how to fix it, @prologic@twtxt.net?

In-reply-to » Given the continued hostility of jam6 and buckket over Yarn'a use of Twtxt (even after several years! 😱) I am continuing to face hard decisions.

@prologic@twtxt.net Honestly this is quite disappointing to see as someone new to the twtxt/yarn ecosystem - it feels like the entirety of the buckket argument is based on a “purist” viewpoint when nothing yarn does feels fundamentally incompatible with original twtxt

Very sad 😔

However I do agree with jan6 on that while yarn is a great twtxt client, twtxt is a terrible yarn client

That doesn’t mean that yarn should change its underlying format away from twtxt though, twtxt is probably yarn’s biggest selling point

my view of twxt is essentially a feed of arbitrary plain text data with timestamps, which can open up the ecosystem to all sorts of good experimentation in clients

and for the specific case of multiline twts, when you actively have a pr waiting which addresses the issue, the stubbornness of the opposition seems quite unreasonable

that’s just my two cents, didn’t mean to write a paragraph (lol a multiline twt for you right here)

When a function does something, it should do it completely, like a good bonfire. It should not be a smoky fire. It should burn itself completely. If it do not burn itself completely, a trace of the function will be left in what it does.

I’m not doing a lot of computer stuff lately, hence it’s a bit quiet over here.

Instead, I’m spending more time fiddling with music and audio stuff. Latest gadget, an additional microphone for my electric upright bass:

Photo (1.6 MB)

More expensive instruments often have such a microphone builtin, but not mine, since I went for the cheapest model available. 🤪

Normally, mine only has a piezo pickup, which sounds like this (headphones advised for all of these clips):

raw_pickup.flac (1.7 MB)

It’s pretty dull, especially when using the bow. So, with that additional mic and some reverb, I now get this:

mix.flac (3.6 MB)

Much better. I’m not 100% happy with the result, but it’s a big improvement nonetheless.

The mic alone sounds like this:

raw_mic.flac (2 MB)

… and of course, I’m still learning how to play this thing properly. 😅 Using the bow is pretty hard.

In-reply-to » Lulz.

@dkordic@twtxt.net There’s a reason for that. Most of it was done by me, and I really really suck at UI/UX 🤣 Fortunately folks like @darch and @screem@twtxt.net and @markwylde@twtxt.net help a lot, but ultimately the web interface was originally done by whatever crappy ass UI/UX skillz I happen to have 😅 – I welcome anyone to create a better UI/UX, looking at you @markwylde@twtxt.net that I hope we can just have hosted at https://yarn.social/app or https://app.yarn.social that lets you connect to any Yarn.social’s Pod backend API 👌 – OTOH as a vision impaired person though I kind of like the simplicity of what we’ve done so far, and we strive to keep it a simple server-side-rendered UI (SSR).

The earliest roman calendar had only 10 months / 304 days. There’s still traces of that in the names today (e.g. DECember used to be the 10th month)

There’s a theory that ancient romans just ignored the missing 61 days in the solar year, since they were in the middle of winter.

So effectively January and February were “dead time” were everyone agreed nothing happened - time doesn’t exist. Just wait around until the sun comes out again.

That’s a concept I could get behind. 👍 ⌘ Read more

In-reply-to » @darch @justamoment @bender Something is a bit off with where the "Logout" button now is and the top-right "Profile" button. Can you guys try to collaborate on this? I just have this feeling... The new profile view is nice, but something is a bit off with the UX, several times I've tried to find the "Logout" button and keep forgetting where it now is 🤣

@justamoment@twtxt.net no idea for mobile (yet). But we could also use different colors for the logout. Like we used to have a secondary (grey) color for settings and logout, before I came in and messed with the css 😅

@ocdtrekkie@twtxt.net Oh snap 🤦‍♂️

so every time I tried to check in here I slammmed into the expired app and went back to Mastodon

I’d best not let that happen again, and get the app over the line and finally published! 🤣 My goals for this year! 🙏 So sorry! 😅 Stay with us, the only truly decentralized community that will stand the test of time 😅

Also we need to finish that Sandstorm work 👌

@darch, the “Settings” screen has issues as well. I can screenshot it and twtxt about it, but it is easier to see. Click on “Settings” and see the alignment of the three blue buttons, and width in comparison with the rest of the page. This on both, desktop, and mobile.

Marginalia Search

This is an independent DIY search engine that focuses on non-commercial content, and attempts to show you sites you perhaps weren’t aware of in favor of the sort of sites you probably already knew existed.

The search engine calculates a score that aggressively favors text-heavy websites, and punishes those that have too many modern web design features.

After a few hours of usage, twtxt feels very in control, in the same way personnal websites do. I feel better writing for it than on other social medias, including Mastodon. The software isn’t using me this time, I’m using it. It’s everything I love about RSS, but as a small social network. No dependencies, accessible to everyone and powerful. Very cool!

In-reply-to » Every year I forget how annoying and time-consuming it is to get this ultra-tough gingerbread dough halfway smooth on the tray.

@bender@twtxt.net @tkanos@twtxt.net Thanks, oh yes, it’s very yummy. :-) It came out far from flat, a lot of different thicknesses, but oh well. I’ve already cut it up into cuboids and put it in a tin box. The thinner stuff is very crunchy and shattered into pieces when my sharp knive wanted to hit it. The thicker stuff cut beautifully. Both parts taste very great, though.

Homemade gingerbread

It’s my grandma’s recipe. For the dough batter

  • 4 eggs
  • 65 g butter
  • 300 g sugar

and then add

  • 500 g honey
  • 675 g flour
  • 1 sachet baking powder
  • 1 sachet gingerbread seasoning
  • 65 g grated chocolate
  • 100 g grated almonds

Bake it for about 35 minutes at 160°C. I was too lazy to add a glaze (it’s also extremely sweet already), but the recipe calls for

  • 300 g powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cacao
  • hot water until spreadable

Hidtil har jeg betalt for serveren.
