In-reply-to » So, I found a few oddities while on mobile.

So, to sum it up, Yarn reply interaction has issues while on mobile (I forgot to mention same applies to “Fork” while on mobile). I might follow Lyse’s (@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org) advise, and “just don’t use it on your telephone, you social addict!” :-D

In-reply-to » I am replying again, just taping reply once. Once course, since I am replying to myself I don’t see my handle. For this one I tapped once on reply.

Yup, even when replying to myself I need to spam “Reply”.

I am replying again, just taping reply once. Once course, since I am replying to myself I don’t see my handle. For this one I tapped once on reply.

So, I found a few oddities while on mobile.

  • From “Timeline”, I need to tap reply twice to have it fill the user’s handle being replied to.
  • From “Mentions”, “Discovery”, and inside Yarns, I need to almost spam it, to have it fill the user’s handle being replied to.

That doesn’t happen while on the desktop.

In-reply-to » @abucci Don't we have enough tools that allow users of single-user and multi-user pods to block stuff they don't want to see? 🤔 The list includes:

@prologic@twtxt.net pattern based filtering can get quite expensive, no? If not, then it would be nice to have, of course. And, as I wrote before, language.

In-reply-to » @abucci @movq I for ones was just silently confused, I'm not in the IRC, so whatever it was - therefore I didn't see it. I also think it's important to add, that no group, event or action, should be considered "protected from humor".

@thecanine@twtxt.net you wrote;

“The Fediverse fractured, mostly because some percentage of users, had to find a way to silence those offensive to them, for the entirety of their instance”

It is called moderation. Often people can get away by blocking individuals. In extreme cases entire instances must be blocked.

I also don’t understand the sanitation you are referring to. You don’t interact with what you don’t like, or agree with. You won’t find nazis in my timelines, or fanatic religiosity. Everyone creates their own space.

If “this place” were to become one day unsuitable for me, I would move on. Not the first, not the last. I always ask myself first, though, “is it me?” Sometimes it is me, and I learn, and I try hard to change.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci said it better than me. You don’t have the facts at hand, and your reply rose eyebrows, and least at my end.

In-reply-to » @prologic I mean, I wouldn't want a Russian server to ensure my free speech, but some of the free speech absolutists will take it anywhere they can get it.

Yeah, you know what? Just take it from me, and stop hurting your head with it: keep away from that shit. At least for now. It is absolutely worthless.

In-reply-to » @bender Interesting that it performed so poorly when your tried your own relay. How many clients were accessing it at once? Overall I'm definitely not sold on it yet, while I do like fiddling around with new protocol stuff I am also very wary of the crypto-libertarian ethos that is driving the Nostr project.

@ocdtrekkie@twtxt.net “it’s not built on the Bitcoin blockchain per se, but most implementations of Nostr support Bitcoin payments over Bitcoin’s Lightning Network.” — Non-scholarly source.

In-reply-to » @axodys I tried Iris, yes. Is OK. I proved to myself that Nostr will not work with just my own relay. Even if the latency is 1ms, all the clients will crawl to a stop with only my relay. It seems it is meant to use many relays, which I don’t like.

@axodys@octobloc.xyz only one client. I was stumped myself, so I tried another relay to make sure. Same result.

I also came across Nick Fuentes, and other extreme right wingers. Not my kind of crowd.

In-reply-to » Would it be horrible to add PDF as a file upload type to yarn.social? Or, can it already do that and I'm just being a lunkhead about it? Every time I've tried to upload a PDF I've gotten an error.

@prologic@we.loveprivacy.club I don’t care, as long as it is possible to upload a file (PDF in this instance, but why to stop there?) that can be linked in similar ways as images.

In-reply-to » Netflix Says Strict New Password Sharing Rules Were Posted in Error New Netflix rules that would have enforced a limitation on users' sharing passwords are reportedly a mistake and don't apply in the US -- for now. From a report: Netflix has long been planning to cut down on password sharing, or letting friends share one paid account. The company appeared to go further, however, with the inclusion in its help ... ⌘ Read more

@eldersnake@we.loveprivacy.club the rules, as they were planning it, were truly bad. I pay premium for 4K, and multiple devices. It is none of their business where those devices might be, as long as I pay the premium to play on them. Anything else is completely stupid, irrational, and I will not bear with it if, or when, it gets instituted.

In-reply-to » Figured out a few more things with Damus/Nostr today. Set up Lightning payments and did a 21 sat microtransaction. Successfully authenticated my ID with my own domain. Started finding interesting people to connect with and branching out from their followers. Also tried out Iris in the web browser.

@axodys@octobloc.xyz I tried Iris, yes. Is OK. I proved to myself that Nostr will not work with just my own relay. Even if the latency is 1ms, all the clients will crawl to a stop with only my relay. It seems it is meant to use many relays, which I don’t like.

I also don’t have—nor want, not even free—any cryptocurrency, so that portion of the protocol is of no use, nor interest to me. Have fun, though! :-)

In-reply-to » 🤔 "Could a large language model be #conscious?" (by David J. Chalmers): https://philpapers.org/rec/CHACAL-3

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci it will be nice to be able to read in what context Weizenbaum wrote that. It comes from an article he wrote, “Social and Political Impact of the Long-term History of computing”, which I haven’t been able to find without selling my soul. I understand you are a scholar; could you “lend” us the article? PDF is fine. :-)

In-reply-to » Norway is buying 54 new tanks. Sweet upgrade. All though the current war is a distance from Norway - it's still our neighbour who is causing it. So it's always in the back of my mind.

@stigatle I hear you. As always, hope for the best, but prepare for the worse. I am thousands of kilometres away, yet it is also always in the back of my mind.

In-reply-to » Decentralized Social Media Project Nostr's Damus Gets Listed On Apple App Store Nostr, a startup decentralized social network, got its Twitter-like Damus application listed on Apple's App Store. CoinDesk reports: Nostr is an open protocol that aims to create a censorship-resistant global social network. Media commentators have described it as a possible alternative to Elon Musk's Twitter.

@prologic@twtxt.net anybody can run a relay. I briefly ran one today. There are hundreds out there.

In-reply-to » Damus is an interesting app, but adoption and discovery are big issues right now. Crypto-dross is dominating the global timeline and nothing about the available content is going to be remotely appealing to a typical social media consumer.

And just like that, my affair with nostr is over. :-D

@axodys@octobloc.xyz I found it, but also found it to be lame, and uninteresting. I am not going to get rid of my private/public keys, and probably will not uninstall the app quite yet, but unless something changes radically I don’t see me using it much, if at all.
