more then a year now and still loving #twtxt

Why I use a Flip phone: Small, replacable battery, 0 price tag, way less of a time suck (I got my life back), Still does everything I need music (works great with my BT headphones), SMS/MMS, calls, there for emergencies.

@tdemin I've come to the realization that ther are no 'good android phones' anymore. Google and vendors have killed the dream. That is why I'm rocking a 90's style flip phone

On the same note I'm loving life with a 90's style 'dumb' flip phone.

I use #mcabber (otr/GPG) or #gajim (omemo) depending on what system I'm on. I might switch the #mcabber to #profanity if once they get omemo out of beta.

@tdemin Yes it is sad that so much development is mobile only these days as there are those of us that strongly dislike the current mobile space.

Wow, BBGW kicks the old RPi B+'s ass speed wise
[2.4 months ago]
\o/ Finally have replaced the RPi on my nano computer with the BBGW. Ah, freedom and open hardware feels so good.
[2.5 months ago]
@tdemin K, get what you are going for now. Sadly I know of nothing that meets all the requirements.
[2.5 months ago]
@tux0r Interesting... do you have a link with more info on that?
[2.5 months ago]
@tdemin but there is a vim/syncthing for android and vim supports encryption.
[2.5 months ago]
@tdemin vim for the notes/encryption syncthing for the Syncing? I've given up on android so I just ssh into my server and vim for notes.
[2.5 months ago]
@tdemin thanks for the info re: #LetsEncrypt and multiple Domains. Perhaps I'll give it a go. I'd make my XMPP server somewhat happier
[2.5 months ago]
@phil what was it supposed to be?
[2.5 months ago]
@kas @tdemin Also not sure #LetsEncrypt can handle cases like mine where The cert has to be for both freemor.ca and freemor.homelinux.net
[2.5 months ago]
@kas @tdemin Yes there is let's encrypt. but the whole PKI system is a mess to the point where having a signed Cert may actually make it Easier to MITM Due to NSLs forcing CAs to sign Bo...
[2.6 months ago]
@tdemin the app isnt from installing it.. it's for moving it to the same place that the system certs are stored which gets rid of a nasty nag about the connection being insecure or potentially monitored
[2.6 months ago]
@mdom Congrats on Both.. Hope they both add up to a happy and joyfull life.
[2.6 months ago]
and congrats, I've got the same thing.. just with #Davical instead of #Radicale
[2.6 months ago]
@kas. The Cert warning can be gotten rid of by moving the Cert to the system sid of the phone with https://f-droid.org/repository/browse/?fdfilter=certificate&fdid=com.nutomic.zertman

@kas A non-smart but not totally dumb phone. think something like a 90's flip phone (Alcatel A392CC)
[5.2 months ago]
@dave nice article tho.. something more people should think about.
[5.2 months ago]
@dave I'm way ahead on that. De-Googled my life years ago.. Just finished divorcing my smartPhone (now rocking a feature phone).
[5.2 months ago]
@mdom, @kas, etc. Thanks for all the great work on #Txtnish
[5.2 months ago]
one of the great things about twtxt... No way for spammers to prosper.. everyone would just ignore their feeds.
[5.2 months ago]
Luckily I have #twtxt. And with my script making an HTML page.. Even my non-twtxt friends can play along.

<sigh> Identi.ca down yet again. Man, pump.io seem to just be to complex for it's own good. (which is why I don't run my own node
[5.3 months ago]
Wow! had to up -l (limit) to catch up on all the posts today
[5.3 months ago]
Hmmm... twtxt over finger.. Hmmmmm.
[5.3 months ago]
@kas the whole webfinger thing confuses me. why not just finger and put my whatever into .plan/.project files?
[5.3 months ago]
We could at some point split the timeline file into 2. Current: XX most recent posts, and Archival: the rest of the timeline. the default being just to pull recent.
[5.3 months ago]
I suppose if #twtxt ever got to the point of Thousands of people in following it'd get kinda noisy but P2Pish systems are always heavier on the bandwidth side
[5.3 months ago]
@mdom.. agreedabout the simplicity of #twtxt. I think moving away from basic http would be a mistake because then it looses it's spectacular simplicity and distributed nautre
[5.3 months ago]
It seems to stem from an unrealistic FOMO and the 'I've got nothing to hide/dont make me think/its not my problem' type of thinking I run into over and over.
[5.3 months ago]
@mdom In my experience it is people unwilling to move away from FB, GOOG, etc. The see the problem.. but basically don't care
[5.3 months ago]
@mdom It is. I rum my own mail, mumble, XMPP, web, servers. I have no accounts on any of the major platforms. It is most definitely do-able.
[5.3 months ago]
@mdom Intreresting article but far to pessemistic. It is still possible to take back control. run your own servers, Use freedom respecting laternatives. etc.

@mdom Excellent.. now I can stay up-to-date without pinging the heck out of we-are-twtxt :) Adding it to my crontab
[5.5 months ago]
@mdom Thanks... pulled.
[5.5 months ago]
@mdom cool but did you forget to commit.. git pull says I'm up-to-date. :)
[5.5 months ago]
well.. nothing blew up.. so good\!

@mdom yep 6c20382 look pretty much like what I was thinking.. I was just thinking as a command for a cron job: txtnish sync-following instead of every time.
[5.5 months ago]
@mdom Looks like I'm a bitt behind on what features txtnish has.. I'll have to catch up.. but meant syncing with we-are-twtxt once a week/monthy/etc
[5.5 months ago]
[5.5 months ago]
@durcheinandr nice work.. you might want to take a gander at my htmlTimeline script at: http://freemor.homelinux.net:16019/~freemor/shared_files/src/twtxt/ for any ideas you might find useful.
[5.5 months ago]
Can I request a time based sync with #we-are-twtxt option for #Txtnish. Or is that on the roadmap already?
[5.5 months ago]
@mdom Oh I am so gonna loose the @bullseye contest. Unless over 140 wins.

too bad tho. I keep coming back to #yacy because I really like the promise of what they are trying to do. Tho I do not like where they are headed with Yacy2/kaskelix Thinks it is the wrong direction for many reasons.
[5.6 months ago]
Well the dream of #yacy on my #BBGW was short lived. Long story short. Huge resource hog. Pushed load to 60!. basically unless you've got a well provisioned workstation to throw at it, it's not really worth the effort.
[5.7 months ago]
Whoot!!! got Yacy on one of my BBGW's.. Tomorrow will be some configuration stuff.. then It shuold be up full time.

@durcheinandr It worked like a charm :)

@durcheinandr I'm waiting for places like the #FSF and #SFLC to chime in... Mostly want people to be aware that a issue might exist. Many people ignore TOS changes.
