Testing twtxt to mastodon cross-posting... not sure if this is a good idea.

I'm exploring the Cocteau Twins back catalog via two singles collections. Victorialand stands above all forever, but I'd like to hear more than the handful of EPs and misc I've encountered so far... surprising how much of an anomaly Victorialand is in ...

Hm. I can't seem to view time.gov on textmode browsers I've tried. (just elinks & curl)

I just caught myself thinking a thought I'm sure I thought at work about 14 years ago. It was like being transported. I was back in that basement cube cursing the lack of strong typing in HTML forms... good time to get up and take a break. :)

A federated forum-like software based on read-only sqlite databases. Bring-your-own-client, like twtxt. That could be neat, maybe worth thinking beyond the headline idea... :)

I deleted my account on a non-work slack server again... I hate it but it made me feel sad to login there. I don't know what it was. I like the people. Being too specific about what was posted that made me feel like that doesn't feel productive... but ...

It's also a shame that the twtxt spec didn't enforce post order from the start. It would make clients slightly more complex to build (barely) but then you could just stream line-by-line new updates instead of downloading every post in every feed...

I wonder if email would be a reasonable way to enable interaction on twtxt... something like publishing an email address for replies in the preamble of your feed, then like twtxt the rest is up to you, but I could imagine a simple moderation queue that...

Ohhh... OK. So the difference between /usr/local/include and /usr/include is just that the former is for headers installed from source, and the latter is for headers installed by system packages? (Except it sounds like homebrew on macos just symlinks /...

In retrospect, parsing / adopting RTs formally into the platform was probably the beginning of the end for twitter. It sort of set the stage for the future: gradual erasure of unique community tricks like the dot-prefix become broken by the open conven...

Passing thought: is there a connection between the rise of modular synthesis and the decline of people who know how to operate a general purpose computer?

Reading twtxt posts is so calming. I'm starting to feel a little overwhelmed by mastodon sometimes actually. I check it too often, probably. Pipe dream: a personal daily digest of blog headlines, mastodon & twtxt posts emailed from my server every morn...

I've been having recurring dreams where my band gets back together (in a tacitly post-covid world) and we just argue a lot. I guess at least I'm thinking about them. <3 (Also I just realized I've never once had a dream involving covid in any way. Weird.)

On reflection, many of the projects that recently made me so overwhelmed that I put everything down for a while -- and down they've stayed mostly for more than a couple weeks at this point -- many of those projects were started or sparked somehow in th...

What is the feeling that makes this barrier every time I think of just doing these things I wish I could do all the time? Why is it that when I know I only have X number of hours until I need to return to some obligation, go back to work, etc that I fe...

Seriously considering hibernation for the winter... for me I think that might just mean outside of work put all deadlines and obligations on hold... try to get into the habit of spending most of my time just reading, maybe take up solitare? :-/

Literally just got over some kind of bad cold and now I'm feeling round 2 approaching. This is pretty normal for me around this time, but it's a bit more stressful in plague times...

I've been sick all week. Poor kitty hasn't played with his favorite toy all week (until today) and is currently giving me THE BUSINESS.

I'm checking my twtxt feed more often now that my stupid little client is pretty fast. More incentive to finish tinkering on my blog setup, maybe I'll write more. :-)

As predicted, I messed around with my site tonight. Maybe I'll do a bit more. It already feels really nice to be touchscreen-free. <3

So little drive to do anything today... days like this I usually end up tinkering on my website though... I just banished my tablet to a box on a shelf (waiting to be given away) so that feels like something accomplished for the day, anyway...

Looking at my firefox history, I made a list of the 21 sites I visit most often. Dreaming basically of pulling all the news-type sites into one static gemini page that updates every day... and seeing if there are CLI or other text-based alternatives fo...

I remember now why I stopped baking for a while. Because after I bake it, I eat it. Not as easy to dump most of my bakes off on friends during the pandemic, but I guess I'm going to try to drown my cousin in muffins so I don't eat em all.

I've been making a daily ritual to run a fan and open the windows to circulate the air in my apartment. It's lovely, even in 20 degree weather -- I'm curious if I'll be able to do it when it's negative 20 too.

Hello gemini! gemini://hecanjog.com

OK, not too shabby. I just tried my first search with gemini and immediately found a delicious looking curry recipe. (Of course in beautiful plain text instead of 5 pages of ads and photos.)

I think I want to get into curries this winter.

At the same time I have to admit I've been more productive creatively this year than most years. I think that has more to do with Pippi getting fairly mature, enough at least that I need to spend far less time on Pippi itself, and far more time using i...

Before the pandemic hit in March, I'd spent the year without TV or movies. It didn't last through the lockdown, but I think I'm finally through a very long hump where I let myself melt into some distractions. I don't regret these periods, I like TV and...

Oh, OK that was actually really easy to set up. I can just run a MIDI playback script and end up with a local recording of an external module. Not super interesting but quite nice! :-)

I'm starting to doubt that I will ever finish Finnegans Wake, although I'm too stubborn to accept it yet. It's still fun to read aloud, and the language is beautiful, but it goes and goes and goes... anyway there's no rush to finish. I suppose I'll kee...

It's a bit comforting to post here. Even though it's in some sense extremely public, because barely anyone uses twtxt it feels a bit more like posting in a private journal. It would be nice to have mult-line posts, I suppose, but I can always start a c...

I don't think I'll drop mastodon soon, but I love that I could "join" a social network so to speak by writing a few dozen lines of code.

It's extremely basic but I like that I could cobble together a twtxt feed reader so easily. I'd like better formatting & mention support, but it's something!

There are lots of cool clients and tools for twtxt... but I think I'd rather play with rolling my own given how simple the format is for everything. I suppose that's the point. :-)
