@firstname.lastname@example.org 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) … 🤦
@email@example.com But why now? As far as I can tell, no state in the U.S. changes from DST at this time of the year. It’s a mystery! 😂
Hmm, something is fishy with her feed, though.

But her latest twt says:
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”.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I know, I remember those cases. Looking back at the threads kwptbpa and zmxk6pa (which both appear to be gone from your pod’s cache? 🤔), that timezone business of hers really shouldn’t happen until November. 🤔
@email@example.com That is one weird picture frame. 🤔 How large is that thing?
(And, haha, the place named “Galgenberg” …)
@firstname.lastname@example.org Welcome to 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.
@email@example.com 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).
@firstname.lastname@example.org Hm, I’n not sure. Her website says “Seattle area” and this page says Seattle switches timezones in November. 🤔
@email@example.com Yep and yep 😊
@firstname.lastname@example.org Wooden house in Norway, right? I envy you 😅
@email@example.com What the heck, now your posts also use
https://uninformativ.de/twtxt.txt as the URL of my feed. That’s missing the
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.
@firstname.lastname@example.org 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. 😅)
@email@example.com Why do you ask? 🥴
@firstname.lastname@example.org 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!)
@email@example.com We already link to the blog post, don’t we? 🤔 What would be the benefit of moving that to Yarn.social?
@firstname.lastname@example.org Germany doesn’t care, as long as you don’t drive a car. 😂
@email@example.com That’s cute. 😅
@firstname.lastname@example.org Oof, that video. 😅
@email@example.com Thanks! Almost missed it.
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.
@firstname.lastname@example.org @email@example.com … and Rust, I’d bet. 😅
@firstname.lastname@example.org Yep, something’s wrong. A lot is wrong. Don’t get me started. 🤣
Oh thank god. It’s cloudy today, finally. And only 21°C (so far). What a relief. This heat was getting unbearable.
@email@example.com 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 …
@firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
@email@example.com 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 …)
@firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.)
@email@example.com Good one! 🤣🤣
I just watched a Jira start for 50 minutes.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for the translation. Sorry, been a bit lazy today. 😅

Spannende Formulierung. Was die wohl dachten, wie Bilder übertragen werden? 🤔 (Oder was die originale, nicht verlinkte Quelle wohl meinte? 🤔)
@email@example.com One, TWO, three, FOUR, … 😅
@firstname.lastname@example.org What! Indeed. 🤯
@email@example.com 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.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Most likely not. 😅
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.
@email@example.com Got it on 04.jpg! 🥳 🐸
