I love monitoring a process. It's more excitement than I can handle.

Non-programmers have invaded the programming area. It wouldn't be bad except some of them wear way too much perfume or cologne. Feel like I need a gas or filter mask.

Another fun day of loading data for this software pilot. It's fun just watching data load.

Well, I'm out until Monday. I hope everyone has a good weekend.

@sdk that's insane. What's the point in that.

I just recently found an issue with my custom client. It was ignoring microseconds on timestamps. Which meant I was missing some twtxt from people. I got that fixed and I know see all of them.
[8 days ago]
@mdom my own custom client I wrote, I use cron to run the update my timeline every 20 mins. My update process also processes 10 curl calls at time. I did that to save time when I poll everyone.

Another fun day of loading data, so people can test the new system next week.

@mdom That's interesting. So does txtnish read that metadata? or would an end user just look at the file to see it? Is the meta data going to be the standard?
[10 days ago]
@mdom what metadata feature is that?

@freemor It's nice to be way ahead of the curve no? LOL.

@kas the only thing I can think is that people are finally re-figuring out that static sites are really fast because the content doesn't need to generated on the fly. I noticed there were a lot of static content generators...

@kas WTF! That's a good one.

After a weekend out in the woods, I'm down one flashlight, one camping chair, and one tent pole.

Well that was disappointing. Was all set to run my Savage World game on Roll20 and 3 of the 5 players had to cancel.

While it's been a short week here, I'm ready for the weekend already.

@<sdk gopher://codevoid.de/0/tw.txt> Well I've added the special datetime to my kitbashed client. I store the URL it gets but I'm not doing anything with it right now.
[14 days ago]
@<sdk gopher://codevoid.de/0/tw.txt> as for the 140 character limit. I swear I read somewhere that the limit was really more of a suggestion than anything else. I don't think any of the clients I've looked out enforce it. As long as it's on a single li...
[14 days ago]
@<sdk gopher://codevoid.de/0/tw.txt> A comment might not be in the spec, but I know several of the twtxt files I've looked at have them. I know my kit bashed twtxt client ignores those lines and I'm sure other clients do too.

@<sdk gopher://codevoid.de/0/tw.txt> you know the more I think about it, it might make sense to have it the twtxt file. It would just need to be a comment line something like "#follows sdk gopher://codevoid.de/0/tw.txt" on a single line. That way it wo...
[2 weeks ago]
@<sdk gopher://codevoid.de/0/tw.txt> a random mix into the the twtxt file seems less clean to me. The former would be easier to implement and simpler for another program to get and parse.
[2 weeks ago]
@<sdk gopher://codevoid.de/0/tw.txt> That's an interesting thought. I Know most are text files but at one time there was someone that used a python CGI Script. That person would have had to make a script for the follows.

@<sdk gopher://codevoid.de/0/tw.txt> I have to admit that's true. While I don't call myself an expert, I almost always wore several hats at places I've worked. Programmer, Server Admin, Network Admin, Cable Puller, Telephone Admin, PBX installer, Datab...

@freemor I always find amazing that people don't understand that. People just don't understand that everything can be a "server"
[3 weeks ago]
@freemor I thought so too. Color me surprised when I surveyed my follow programmers in my dept and only 3 out 12 knew what I was talking about.

One thing for sure on this project I'm working on, being able to run multiple CURL requests at once has been a real time saver.

Finally saw some good temps for camping but then I just remembered that labor day is coming up and there will be idiots out there.

@pete I've played with Mastodon but I really never got into it.

@metamurks I use to but I downgraded this account, since I had two MetaArpa acconts and I really only needed one.

@metamurks Well, I'm thinking of moving my twtxt to anotheurl soon.
[1.7 months ago]
@metamurks Changes to my SDF account are the issue I'm sure.

testing to see if I'm back up.

@metamurks No worries from this end.

@kas thanks for that link. Thats a pretty neat thing.

@freemor that is odd, I wonder what happened.
[6.6 months ago]
In the last two weeks the company laid off two of the programmers. Which is crazy since we are just about to embark on a huge system conversion.
[6.9 months ago]
@freemor I am the same way.

@mdom It certainly does. I find in my currenting pairing, it doesn't work well and to be brutal I do 10x the work without them.

@leveck I really want to use mastodon, but I just can't seem to come up with a use case for me. Guess I don't really do much Social Media type stuff

Another fun day at work. I'll be glad when the day is over.

@kas DST ends here in the US on Sunday. I'm lucky enough to live an area of the US were we don't do that sort of thing. Although it makes dealing with people that do a little tough.

For some reason, I started Playing with old School BBSs
[11.5 months ago]
So since Mastodon was mentioned a few times, I'm trying that out. Any recommendations on people to follow?
[11.5 months ago]
@dave not sure why but I didn't know that SDF had a Mastodon server. I'll have to create an account
[11.6 months ago]
@reednj It was mentioned in a sdf.org bboard, so I thought I'd check it out.
[11.6 months ago]
@quite thanks, I got that corrected
[11.7 months ago]
Well after 4 hours of work, I finally think I solved all my client side calculation issues. I have no desire to screw with it again
[11.7 months ago]
Work Project Note : Trying to redo server side logic on the client side sucks.

I am not opposed to someone having a negative comment now and then but when 90% of what they say is negative. That is a person I do not need in my life.
[11.7 months ago]
@freemor True, but in this case this person was talking about standards that didn't actually exisit.
[11.7 months ago]
Sometimes I feel at work that when they mention 'standards' it just code for I don't understand the code you wrote, so rewrite everything
[11.9 months ago]
@tfurrows That's cool, I know only a little electronics. Enough to know not to melt plastic and make the purple smoke appear.
[11.9 months ago]
@freemor I have to say that looks interesting.
[11.9 months ago]
@tfurrows It is neat. Although it did require to recode a little bit of my kitbashed client LOL

@freemor I'm cheating geting @<mekon gopher://sdf.org/0/users/mekon/twtxt.txt> file by using my own kitbashed php CLI client I am playing around with

Had to update my client to use CURL so I could get @<mekon gopher://sdf.org/0/users/mekon/twtxt.txt> twtxt file via gopher
[12.0 months ago]
@tfurrows just saw your one reply. Yes the client does have a way to sync with the we_are_twtxt list. So far the biggest issue with the PHP CLI client is that it takes a long time to poll all the sites

@freemor Thanks

After spending 10 hours on a JS issue, found out I needed to have the library we are using to always update things even if it thinks no changes have done
[12.1 months ago]
I swear work can not make up its mind. One moment, they want things calculated one way. Then the next a different way. Finally they want it back the way it was. What a waste of time and effort
