@mckinley@twtxt.net That’s probably it – it’s been wrong the whole time. According to my old posts on this matter, the stamps should be wrong during the entire summer (when DST should have been applied). 🥴 So, nothing changed recently, we only noticed it (again) … 🤦

Hmm, something is fishy with her feed, though.

curl says:

Last-Modified: Fri, 02 Sep 2022 21:38:02 GMT

But her latest twt says:

2022-09-02T22:31:26-00:00

So if Last-Modified is correct (it probably is, unless her server’s clock is off, which is less likely than a bug in the script), then the latest twt looks indeed like it was from “the future”.

The heat wave is finally over. It lasted about 1.5 months. 🥵 Now we’re back to somewhat mild temperatures (17°C) and a bit of rain. Went on a walk earlier today, which was super relaxing.

Big trees have survived, but you can tell by the “grass” how much everything else has dried up.

In-reply-to » I've never heard of Miscellaneous Binary Format before, but thanks to @movq I now finally have! https://www.uninformativ.de/blog/postings/2022-09-02/0/POSTING-en.html Very interesting read, thanks mate!

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org You’re welcome. 😃 This Docker thingy is the first time I’ve seen binfmt_misc in action. Drew DeVault happened to mention binfmt_misc yesterday, too, in a different context. I don’t really do cross-architecture stuff … This topic only popped up at work, because Apple introduced their ARM M1 CPU and now our devs build multiarch Docker images (and we were wondering how the heck QEMU got installed).

In-reply-to » To all my EU friends...

Turns out, I wasn’t entirely correct. According to Wikipedia, several cities tried to outlaw alcohol over the years. 🤔 Sometimes, a court overruled them, though. Also, it’s not allowed to drink alcohol on some trains.

I wasn’t aware of this. I rarely drink alcohol, let alone in public, so I wasn’t up to speed with the current rules. 😅 But to be honest, I think pretty much nobody knows. People generally assume that drinking in public is fine, I’d say. And nobody cares about people drinking “in a calm orderly manner” anyway, only drunk idiots are a problem.

In-reply-to » @movq Do you know how I would find people that reply to my posts or replies or even mention my users? Prologic tried to contact me and unless I found him on the yarn pod then I would not know he exists and wants to talk to me. The user agents would work but I don't know if I can view my web server logs from codeberg pages and I don't know how to monitor my logs for mentions. What about the way yarn does it by added people you follow to your twtxt file and having friends of friends like yarn does it be a thing for jenny. Just an idea

@jason@jasonsanta.xyz Yeah, that’s the weakest point of raw twtxt: Discoverability. If you don’t have access to your server’s logs, then you’ll have a hard time finding out if someone mentioned you. 🫤

In the beginning, jenny actually used to include the list of people that you follow in the twtxt file. This has later been changed for privacy reasons. (You can still include such a list at the top of your feed, but you’d have to do it manually or with a script or something.)

The huge advantage of Yarn is that it’s a server-side application. When someone fetches your feed, Yarn will know and it can tell you. That’s just not possible with plain files. 🫤

(btw, the URL to my feed should include a www.. Since you omitted that, my jenny didn’t highlight your messages. 😅)

In-reply-to » got jenny setup and threads works completly fine but now I want to figure out how to get auto publishing working

@prologic@twtxt.net Hmm, I’m not sure. Do we/you really want to maintain docs at Yarn.social about other clients? Follow their development and update our guides accordingly? 😅 I think the current solution is better: Have a list of clients and link to their documentation.

(Or maybe I still didn’t understand. 😅 Sorry!)

In-reply-to » Plan A: Go to Esslingen with the canoe. That was foiled by blocked off streets for a bicycle race. It was impossible to get anywhere where we could enter the river Neckar.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org

But who would think of a bicycle race in the first place?

Don’t you listen to FM radio anymore?! I’m sure they announced it! 🥴

Sounds like a stressful day.

In-reply-to » @prologic It is, but that’s just one of many factors at play here. It turned out that the system did not leave the stage of “loading plugins” for a long time. “Loading plugins” means: Read the plugin blobs from the PostgreSQL database (that’s where they’re stored) and put them somewhere in the filesystem (probably so that the Java VM can actually load them), probably also analyze the plugins in some way (I didn’t dig that deep). When finished, the resulting directory in the filesystem is a whopping 1.4 GB in size. Combine that with a CPU that’s way too slow, and voilà, it takes forever to start.

@akoizumi@social.kyoko-project.wer.ee Yep, something’s wrong. A lot is wrong. Don’t get me started. 🤣

In-reply-to » Does anyone of you use PGP encrypted mail, or any kind or email encryption? Why? Why not?

@eaplmx@twtxt.net Whoops, I didn’t answer the “why do you use it”: Actually, I don’t really know …

It would be awesome to use GPG for private stuff, like family photos and such. A lot of sensitive information is sent that way (in my family at least). All of that is unencrypted, sadly, because nobody in my family uses GPG. I talked to them about it a couple of times, but it’s just too complicated. So now Google and other companies have a ton of photos with me on it. That really sucks a lot. (These kinds of things are gradually moving over to our family Matrix server, so it’s getting better. Not that Matrix is a great thing, but at least it’s self-hosted.)

So all the encrypted mail is mostly mundane stuff that could have been public anyway. 😂 Which brings us to the question why I bother …

In-reply-to » Does anyone of you use PGP encrypted mail, or any kind or email encryption? Why? Why not?

@eaplmx@twtxt.net I do have GPG set up and I use the key a lot (like signing Git commits, release tarballs, password stores, …). Regarding email, though, let’s see …

I just skimmed over the mails of the last 2 years (back to July 2020). I’ve exchanged mails with 39 different people, which is way more than I expected. 😳 7 of those people were also using GPG and we sent some encrypted mails back and forth. 🤔 (Only counting direct mail to other people here, not notifications or mailing lists – those make up the vast majority, of course, and they’re all unencrypted.)

It’s more than I expected, but let’s be honest: Those other GPG users are mostly some uber-nerds that comment on something I wrote in my Gopher hole. 😅 “Normal people” don’t care, at all.

@mckinley@mckinley.cc Interesting read. 🤔 The idea of stamps seems intriguing. (Could this work? Do people care enough? Or are they gonna say “too complicated, why doesn’t it just work?!“? Because let’s be honest: Current email is probably good enough already for 99% of people …)

In-reply-to » I just watched a Jira start for 50 minutes.

@prologic@twtxt.net It is, but that’s just one of many factors at play here.

When finished, the resulting directory in the filesystem is a whopping 1.4 GB in size. Combine that with a CPU that’s way too slow, and voilà, it takes forever to start.

The “solution” was to move the system to another host which has a more powerful CPU. 🫤

(You might think that that’s a very large number of plugins, but rest assured, it’s quite normal. People love to install every plugin that they can find.)

In-reply-to » I’ve been lost in my DAW for a week now. Making music – especially something along the lines of Metal with actual instruments, not just synthesizers – is so hard. 😩 Makes you appreciate the work of all those artists out there a lot more.

@prologic@twtxt.net I’m not even close to “publishing” any of what I’m currently working on. 😅 The only thing I can show you is my instrumental electronic stuff, maybe start with The Year 2648 or Moonlight. All the synths come from LMMS, though, Ardour was only used for mixing.

@xuu@txt.sour.is Most likely not. 😅
