@mdom Congrats. I need to get me one of those.

@skingrapher thanks for the info on ID24

hmmm... curl -I to get the headers (with length); stat -c %s <cached version>; if curl_len > cached_len then curl -r cached_len-curl_len >> cached file
[7 days ago]
Just remembered that curl has the -r option.. This could fix the huge timeline issue but simply requesting the needed end bits of the file
[7 days ago]
@tx I'm hopping on IRC if you want to kick it around a bit.
[7 days ago]
@tx and some other things like: move away from the multiprotocol super simplicity of curl? a daemon and a client or client is the server? etc
[7 days ago]
@tx Like what exactly is the problem you are trying to fix. The NAT issue? the fact that people lack skills to launch a server? Bandwidth usage?
[7 days ago]
@tx Though about ZeroNet and have played with it a tiny bit. But I'm seeing that this could go techno-alistic quite easily. I think you should define some things first...
[7 days ago]
@tx but need something light that can run as a daemon 24/7 and not eat the system or tons of bandwith (I know latter is a hard ask with P2P)
[7 days ago]
@tx Is there something as light as http (server wise) thats is also P2P. I think it would really help with twtxt adoption if it could selfserve over some kind of P@P
[7 days ago]
@tx But I suspect that ipfs would make my small footprint server fall over (not a lot of ram)...
[7 days ago]
@tx I publish directly from my home server too. I like the idea of twtxt being able to selfhost without people having to set up an http server...
[7 days ago]
@tx sounds pretty good. Are you thinkig of just making ipfs the default publish, our posting a ipfs script to add as a post publish hook?

Wow! Got busy in here all of a sudden.. and lots to read to (links) I'll have to take some time and catch up tomorrow.

Re: Spambots, It's nice that some Russians care so very much about my social life and are willing to put in so much effort to see that I'm not alone. :)

@nblade. Oh... Those 'Standards'... In that case I totally see your point. (Sounds like a PHB problem)

@nblade Sometimes yes but often no. /me still remembers when yenc broke the usenet. Which could have been prevented by the simply going the RFC route before unleashing it.

Hmmmm my #txtnish is all up to date and should be using curl but no @<mekon gopher://sdf.org/0/users/mekon/twtxt.txt>. Fetching manually with curl does fetch the timeline.. odd

How does one go about informing the person that is trying to scrape your site that their problem is a heinously malformed useraagent string. (really the 400 error code they are getting back should be a clue)

For the detail on OpenPGP: header see: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/draft-josefsson-openpgp-mailnews-header Why re-invent the wheel, and creat a competing standard
[1.8 months ago]
@kas, @tx. self hosting a mail server isn't too bad if you stick with a leaf node (no outound SMTP). I've run one for years.
[1.8 months ago]
If I want E2E IM (chat) I just use XMPP/OTR/OMEMO. If I want E2E mail GPG works fine.
[1.8 months ago]
The only interesting bit about DeltaChat is it's mention of AutoCrypt. But I fail to see how AutoCrypt isn't just an attempt to re-invent the OpenPGP: header

@tdemin K, get what you are going for now. Sadly I know of nothing that meets all the requirements.
[4.5 months ago]
@tux0r Interesting... do you have a link with more info on that?
[4.5 months ago]
@tdemin but there is a vim/syncthing for android and vim supports encryption.
[4.5 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.
[4.5 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
[4.5 months ago]
@phil what was it supposed to be?
[4.5 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
[4.5 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...
[4.5 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
[4.6 months ago]
@mdom Congrats on Both.. Hope they both add up to a happy and joyfull life.
[4.6 months ago]
and congrats, I've got the same thing.. just with #Davical instead of #Radicale

@dave I'm way ahead on that. De-Googled my life years ago.. Just finished divorcing my smartPhone (now rocking a feature phone).
[7.1 months ago]
@mdom, @kas, etc. Thanks for all the great work on #Txtnish
[7.1 months ago]
one of the great things about twtxt... No way for spammers to prosper.. everyone would just ignore their feeds.
[7.1 months ago]
Luckily I have #twtxt. And with my script making an HTML page.. Even my non-twtxt friends can play along.

Wow! had to up -l (limit) to catch up on all the posts today
[7.3 months ago]
Hmmm... twtxt over finger.. Hmmmmm.
[7.3 months ago]
@kas the whole webfinger thing confuses me. why not just finger and put my whatever into .plan/.project files?
[7.3 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.
[7.3 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
[7.3 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
[7.3 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.
[7.3 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
[7.3 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.
[7.3 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 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.
[7.5 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
[7.5 months ago]
[7.5 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.
[7.5 months ago]
Can I request a time based sync with #we-are-twtxt option for #Txtnish. Or is that on the roadmap already?

[7.6 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.
