Basically the good ol' days when people/businesses ran their own servers instead of everthing being funneled into a few giant silos.

@johanbove Yes, the internet was always meant to be much more peer-to-peer then is has become. Us old timers have fond memories of when things like NNTP, UUCP, gopher, IRC, etc. Reigned supreme (yes I know some of tho...

I don't think everyone should feel the same. But the views formed by living and working in such a constrained environment are heavily ingrained and thus necessarily influence my views of things.

Due to this I: live in a plain non gui VT, view GUI's as a waste or ram/cycles, DE's even more so, Think the current trend of doing everything in the browser is a wrong minded disaster that needs to stop, etc.

Pro tip: when using gpm on your VT. Left click start, right click end, everything inbetween gets highlited. much nicer then dragging. middle click to paste (even cross VT)

WRT check rate. As a self hosted instance. I don't really care about peoples twtxt poll rate unless it is something like <1 min. Most clients understand 304s and so only do a full pull if something changed.

I've been keeping an eye on the scans of port 25. The are coming from increasingly diverse places. Not sure if it is host/proxy hopping or someone building a new botnet.

these are coming from networks I am not connected to, hitting port 25, and never complete the 3-way handshake. Proxy checks don't set off my firewall. These ones do.
[9.0 months ago]
@adiabetic It is not the usual proxy checks. Those come to 80/443 and are clearly marked as such.
[9.0 months ago]
@kas Yes, I suspect it is some lone individule. Not sure how they are getting IRC servers to send PSH SYN packets towards my server.
[9.1 months ago]
Nope! -U prevents the timeline from updating too. Fixed it with hack for now, while I look for a nicer solution
[9.1 months ago]
Is it just me, or are other people seeing port scans from irc servers (which is apparently a thing. Who knew)?
[9.1 months ago]
Fixed @<oevl gopher://oevl.info/0/twtxt.txt> 's URL getting changed from gopher:// to http:// by assing the -U flag to my update script.

@mdosch when I set @oevl's URL to a gopher://oevl.info/0/twtxt.txt it works fine with txtnish. Problem is txtnish keeps settting it back to http://oevl.info/twtxt.txt due to the metadata in oe...

[9.4 months ago]
(re: Session) I'm also not seeing loki-service-node source code, just binaries. So is it a "Just trust the server" system?
[9.4 months ago]
(re: Session) "Duress codes" Are a bad idea and in almost all jurisdictions will get you into more trouble then not. (Destruction of evidence, Impeeding an investigation, etc. etc. )
[9.4 months ago]
(re: Session) I do not like the "staking" model they are using for the servers. The Internet should not be "Pay-to-Play". Also it favours well resourced entities (NSA, CES, Etc.) over normal non heavily resources individules.

@kas Yep, seeing the "/.git/HEAD" requests here too.. but fewer as that would run afoul of one of my servers banning rules. But still quite a few in my logs.

@kas And biggest browser is owned by one of the worst of the bunch, Google. Which people seem to forget is an advertising company that happens to do tech, not the other ways round.

@creme Welcome Aboard
[11.1 months ago]
then anyone could follow the links all the way back and it'd be pretty self maintaining.
[11.1 months ago]
@kas I suppose that one could create a linked list of sorts by adding a URL to the previous years twtxt file in the metadata of the current one.
[11.6 months ago]
@sixbitproxywax HTTP has the ability to request byte ranges. a twtxt client could just do a HEAD request. Offset by the size of the file it has cached, and request only the needed range.

There were a lot of other issues "losf" was just the last straw.

Their GUI client is even worse. Basically I gave up on the whole mess when the CLI (and thus GUI) needed lsof to compile. Requiring lsof is very questionable for a privacy oriented app.

as an exapmle I've had an X-PGP-Key: header in my e-mails forever. I have a copy of public my key on my webserver, and on the public keyservers.
[1.0 year ago]
@kas Interesting stuff. I do love reading RFC's. But this one feels like a solution without a problem. I have no problem getting my key to people. And newer options like autoucrypt headers make it even easier.
[1.1 years ago]
@kas Yep, sure is.. But still works fine for me. And at the end of the day isn't that what it's all about?
[1.1 years ago]
@lucidiot Hope you and everyone else there is OK.

[1.1 years ago]

[1.1 years ago]
in searching around I have seen them say that things under /t/ are for tracking engagement. But that is BS since they just served me the page with the beacon on it.

if you wget either of those you'll have a 1x1 pixel GIF

Still no reply from DockDuckGo Re: the 1x1 web beacon. Not good DDG folks this is a valid question.
[1.1 years ago]
The things you notice when using a text only browser.

DuckDuckGo has a 1x1 pixel GIF (classic web beacon) on the bottom of all my search results. Looks like a tracking attempt to me. E-mailed them to ask why.

@adiabetic Congrats! But probably no award long uptime isn't the badge of honour it once was. It is now often seen as a negative.

@svf Welcome to #twtxt
[1.2 years ago]
@mdosch yeah, I noticed.. But the Function instead of an alias is still a good hack and one I'll remember. I'll probably just make the 2 line script :)
[1.2 years ago]
@lucidiot Ah! a function instead of an alias. Very clever. I can see this leading to a bunch of new functions in my .bashrc or .profile
[1.2 years ago]
What I'd like is for it to work correctly if I : tweet <a multi word tweet here> . But forget to quote the words of the tweet. Right now if I forget the quotes it sends each word as a seperate tweet instead of gobbling the entire $2-$N as the tweet.

@kas How much of a hastle was setting up INN. I'm no stranger to server set-ups but the few times I've pondered it it seemed a bit complicated (tho that would be year and years ago)?
[1.2 years ago]
@kas I fire up tin to read from nntp.aioe.org from time to time.. but definitely not like the early days. I had soo many good conversation on NNTP back in the day. Hopefully it'll find a niche like gopher seems to have.

[1.3 years ago]
It will also allow me to say things like "No, No, I'm all over the Internet. I just don't go on the Sheeplenet."
[1.3 years ago]
Why the new term? Because today I relaized that my aversion to the Sheeplenet means that I am gonna be damn near impossible to Phish.
[1.3 years ago]
Sheeplenet: Refers to Google, FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Amazon, etc. Basically the things that 90+% of the population are thinking of when they say Internet.

Which is why I built myself a small SBC based MID (Mobile Internet Device) years ago. All the power of linux at my fingertips. None of the crap. And Way cheaper then a smartphone.

@mdosch It should be noted that IRC is federated (servers talk to servers) just not across "IRC Networks". And XMPP does sometimes require bouncers (just server side) to deal with spambots and asshats that will exploit you...
[1.4 years ago]
@mdosch I'm a big fan of XMPP too. Ran my own server for years. Guess I just see XMPP and IRC as two different things. XMPP -> Hanging with friends, IRC -> local pub/comminuty center/coffee shop

Yep, long term plan is to monetize Bittorrnet protocol and turn in into just another CDN for the big media folks. Hope if flops hard.

That may change in the future if I decide to join one of the 11m DXing groups like 9-TC. I've heard some of the 9-TC crew out there but haven't managed to QSL any of them yet.

@nonlinear if you have an 11 meter capable rig. I'm usually on 27.3850 LSB when the skip is good as "350 Newbrunswick Canada"

Just learned the finer points of w3m's tabs function. Between that and CTRL-Z the number of VTs I need to have on the go is steadily dropping.

@kas , Cool thanks for sharing Shizaru

@adiabetic It might be that wget is honouring robots.txt (which is its default). but hat can be changed.

@mk Never saw what needed fixing :)

@von I find posing here goes in cycles depending on whats going on in my life. Although for me this is my 1 social media thing.

or maybe: grep twtxt.txt /var/log/lighttpd/access.log | cut -d\" -f6 | sort | uniq
[1.6 years ago]
Something like: grep twtxt.txt /var/log/lighttpd/access.log | awk '{ print $(NF-1)" "$NF }' | sort | uniq Would give you a quick and dirty look.

@mr_woggle twtxt really doesn't support that. But You could check server logs to get some idea. Some clients Include the requesters twtxt URI in the UserAgent String

Good skip tonight. Even before gray-line. Lots of LSB action on Chan. 38.
[1.6 years ago]
lots more too: curl https://wttr.in/:help

Probably been posted here days gone by but: https://wttr.in Cool for CLI junkies because: curl https://wttr.in/~<supported city> gives ascii art 3 day weather for <supported city>

@mk The "incel" comminity is a terrible thing to get sucked in to, as demonstrated by the second paragraph on: https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Incel

Looks like sporadic-e skip today! All channels busy, LSB on channel 38 full of DX'ers Man, I really need to get my dipole up to it's proper height.

SunSpot AR2740 is coming around for a second go and still very active. Radio will be interesting for the next little while.

@mk Most CB radios don't show freq. but 23 or 40 designated channels. https://www.hamradio.me/charts/cb-radio-frequencies.html My mobile (Midland 85-722) has the ability to show either but even in freq. mode will o...

Sadly I can't try talking back because they hang out on channel 9. Reserved for emerg. here

Caught some nice "Grey-line" skip from Peurto Rico this time. CB is fun.

@kas I can not connect to the URL you mention either.

@kas My following file has the URI as https://twtxt.rosaelefanten.org/ but that 404s

@lahvak Nice article thanks for posting it.
[1.6 years ago]
@tux0r It (ksh2020) is opensource. Fork it from before EBCDIC was taken out. them merge upstream changes you like. Build. Problem solved
[1.6 years ago]
@mk I'm in the same boat ShortWave wise. All I currently have is one of those handcranked portable emergency am/fm/sw radios. But That can change. :)
[1.6 years ago]
@mk the R-1000 looks nice. I'd miss having the BFO tho. You can get a retractable clip-on (clips on to the whip on your handheld) for pretty cheap. That way you can put it up while listening and then take it down a...

Just caught some very cool greyline skip. Not sure were from but very spanish speaking and different rules because they were on channel 9 (which here is reserved for emergencies).
[1.6 years ago]
@mk Plus I'd want a unit with a BFO to listen to side band.
[1.6 years ago]
@mk ShortWave or something else. My CB (11Meter) playings have me pineing for some SWL action but would have to convince wife to let me put up yet another antenna.
[1.6 years ago]
@mk You might also find http://spacew.com/www/realtime.php useful
[1.6 years ago]
@mk Oh, Glad it was useful to more people then myself. I'm looking to chase skip on the 11m band. How is it useful to you?

More then you probably ever wanted to know about HF propagation: http://www.sws.bom.gov.au/Educational/5/2/2 (Mostly bookmarking for myself)

@kas Sounds like it'll be loads of fun. Malls, sports bars, Etc Etc, You could really drive people batty at an Off track betting place.. lol (I'd exit the premisis quickly on that last one)

RE: TV-B-Gone Cute... Have Fun.. Olny thing missing is a way to make it do a fake incoming message alert sound so it looks more convincing when you pull it out of your pocket.
[1.7 years ago]
@kas Very cool re: wiPhone.. I'll have to check that out more when I have a bit of time,

@kas Re: liberland. Blank page for me. Guess people with text base browsers aren't invited. (Even viewing the source doesn't help. :(

@adiabetic good catch, That'd be a bug you should submit a BR or a patch/PR to fix that. :)
[1.7 years ago]
@mk did you want us to chenge just the nick or the URI as well
[1.7 years ago]
just read about Googles plans for "AMP". Great going Google, this is a spammers wet dream come true. Let the phishing and infections commence

@von Thanks re: line. I took a look and I'm not seeing any wierdness at least not with vim.
[1.7 years ago]
@von What is the last post #twtxt sees.. must be that line or the next that causes the issue.
[1.7 years ago]
@von Hmmm.. that must be a bug in #twtxt. Question is what in my feed is driving it batty.
[1.7 years ago]
@von and looking in older logs I'm seeing successful pulls going all the way back to the 17th
[1.7 years ago]
@von I'm seeing a slew of succeccful twtxt pulls from you today... Is the problem fixed?
[1.7 years ago]
@von very strange. what error are you getting when you try to fetch
[1.7 years ago]
@kas Thanks for the heads up. Fixed, bad regex on a rule.

Last bit for CB base station ordered.. Soon I'll be 10-8, 10-10, on the side.

@tux0r Yeah, My XMPP server was retired last year due to too little use to make the up keep seem worthwhile. Replaced by Tox.
