Yesterday evening's delivery driver's battery went down to 7% before I lost the logging. Not sure whether their shift ended or it actually died
[2 days ago]
On a scale of 0 to 10, what would be the WTF level in my driver's mind if I open the door and tell them to charge their phone?
[2 days ago]
As always, currently tracking my delivery driver's battery level on this horribly insecure API. Currently at 31%, losing 1% every 5min, I hope they have a charger

@kas @mdosch Try Compose-CCCP (use shift and type those in actual caps) ☭

@mdosch @kas I personally have my Compose key set to right ctrl so I press Right Ctrl then period twice

Currently writing a 450-line long HTML table in Vim. Now I truly understand why WYSIWYG editors and Markdown exist.

One of the things that I like on twtxt is seeing @kas using … (the actual ellipsis) instead of ... (three periods).

MyModel.objects.values_list('earth', flat=True).get() == 'yes'. That's it, checkmate science
[10 days ago]
Create a model with a varchar field named earth, then add an instance with earth=yes, because we will assume that Earth exists…

Django allows you to prove that Earth is flat!

@sdk GG! that was why I was talking about pre-gzipped payloads so the server has nothing to do :p
[11 days ago]
@sdk can you make your HTTP server serve a gzip archive directly? like it sends it with the right compression header without compressing it every time. that would let you gzip like multiple GB from /dev/zero for example, an...

@kas Maybe there could be an interactive mode where the username, url and latest tweets are displayed and you can tell it to follow this txt or continue, therefore creating the twtxtinder
[3 weeks ago]
hmmm i feel like migrating away from twtxt to txtnish, is there a magic tool to not have to reconfigure everything or can't I be lazy?
[3 weeks ago]
@kas I had something like 180 (including the nick-only mentions without URLs) from curl-ing my following

@von The archival part is probably the best part of the bujo for me. My previous bujos are one thing I am 100% proud of just because they are full of everything I did.

@kas wait how many twtxt bots do you even have‽
[3 weeks ago]
hmmm there could be some kind of crawler which parses twtxt files to pick all the mentions or following= and tries them all, to build a graph and an automated index

@freemor The earthquake got three people injured. I was at least 100km away from it so I just felt my loft bed shaking under me for no reason for a few seconds, that was fun
[3 weeks ago]
Felt an earthquake this morning! My loft bed is very sensitive to vibrations, so it started shaking pretty hard after I heard a weird noise, like an explosion from far away. M5.4 50km from here

I also am on my third attempt at installing 98SE, because I keep having driver issues. I have to wait 30 minutes for the ethernet driver to be sent over infrared again each time; at least everything is ready on the webdav folder
[4 weeks ago]
I moved the WebDAV server i was running on my main rig to a more permanent place on my actual server. I now have a LAN-only shared folder on port 98 to share things between old windows laptops
[4 weeks ago]
Now running a WebDAV server in Docker on my main machine to serve files as a shared folder on Windows 98; works really well!

Infrared update: Wifi drivers have failed, but Ethernet works so I finally got an alternative to infrared for sharing files

Infrared update: I got the sound and motherboard drivers in, so I get the nice startup sound but still no USB :/ trying to send ethernet and wifi drivers.
[4 weeks ago]
@kas (re: infrared) aaaand it just failed! let's try again, because I have no other way of sending drivers to the win98 laptop because it lacks USB, ethernet and wireless drivers…
[4 weeks ago]
@kas (re: infrared) very slowly, it's at 86% after over 47 minutes of transferring, but it works! I heard XP screaming a few times about loosing the connection, the sound it makes when this happens is really scary

@von (re: bujo) Glad I could help :)

Currently transferring 72 MB of drivers from an IBM ThinkPad T23 running XP Pro to a T42 running 98, over infrared. First time ever using infrared!

@von (re: bujo) A separate work bujo can help you properly segment work and private life, which is important to relax. But a bujo might just be too heavy; try maybe the dash-plus system, or just a notebook with an in...
[4 weeks ago]
@von (re: bujo) I wouldn't recommend managing anything work-related in a bujo if you need to share anything you're doing with others, since it's paper-based; collaboration is easier on task management apps
[4 weeks ago]
@von (re: bujo) Well it's up to you, I personally do not manage work stuff in a bujo since we have trello boards, etc., but I know that sharing a bujo for both personal stuff and work stuff has some risks: if there i...

@kas (re: mosquitoes) Also just to be curious I laid in bed for two hours with gloves (itchy gloves, argh), so the only uncovered part was my face. The mosquito landed on my nose!

@kas (re: mosquitoes) I know, just wanted to joke for a bit. And you mentioned the wrong person :p

I noticed mosquitoes only ever bite me on my hands and feet. If everything other than my face is covered, they never bite me. I did not know my face looked THAT bad

Reminds me of ~vilmibm who dubbed twitter, mastodon and the like as RCVS systems (Reverse-Chronological Void Shouting).
[1.9 months ago]
twtxt sometimes feels like when you are getting started on a twitter/mastodon-like social network with zero followers: shouting into a complete void. Except with twtxt the only way to change that feeling is to sometimes receive mentions.
