@kas I fell in love with ssh tunnels years ago. Who needs a VPN when you got SSH.
@kas, thank you, I really appreciate that :) I wanted to do a great job writing about twtxt so if you think I did then it makes me happy :D
@kas Advantage of hashing the phone # (especially with something strong like PBKDF2) Would be that people feel more comfortable that this wasn't just a way to collect a ton of phone #s
@kas to (1) he explained that phone numbers are too predictable to have any advantage by hashing and I don't understand (2) as this might be a step to increase the xmpp user base.
@kas Thanks for the heads up on those Ted talks.. Look interesting, will definitely have to give them a gander.
@kas I forgot a DNS record 🙈

@kas Did more digging after your response Seems to have something to do with the cipher suite. If I go bare bones FF based browser it works. anything with hardened prefs seems to fail.
@kas I emailed the author, RSS/Atom feed is missing, this is a must-have for a website, especially with a lower uptime

@kas nice read, funny they use jquery just to show the battery level with the bg color: it's the biggest file on the page.

@kas Re: email security grader.. xlink -> invalid cert (can't load), ok try w3m -> invalid cert. Ok proceed anyway -> screen of raw HTML. I'm gonna trust these guys to tell me if my email is secure?
@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 Woohoo! then my website is way ahead of the curve.. (agreed he must be young.)
@kas WTF! That's a good one.
@kas Thanks for #hugo awards. All books for best novel were really good this year, but I somehow missed Six Wakes ... sound great!
@kas Re: Dweb - JS, WebRTC, P2P.. G'aaaa! It seems like a lot of wasted cycles/bandwidth/etc Just to save users from having to forward ports 80 and 443 (or any port for that matter if they know hot to :<port>)
@kas Have to say the peertube is intersting. Too bad I don't have a serveto play with it.
@kas Have you done something with nncp? I like the idea, but somehow i don't find a use case for it... :)
@kas the whynohttps.com folks don't seem to understand whynocloudflare :/
@kas thanks for that link. Thats a pretty neat thing.
@kas mano sounds interesting but 0 links to any software (at least with a txt browser.. I'll check with a js thinggy)
@kas (re pmOS) I'd love to have a 'real' Linux in my phone. The closest was when I was using #SailfishOS.
@kas (re #hooktube) nice. 😎 Let's see if this addon works: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/hooktubeify/
@kas, my "home airport" is No 5. 😀 Actually I like munich airport. The higher ranked ones I have not visited so far. #muc
@kas [maloya] I lived in Reunion 16 years. this island will be always in my heart
@kas (re: numpop) whoa, nice! I think my best is still 400 or 500-something, though I did have a bot break 4k
@kas (re: MS acquires GitHub) always #gafam, #gafam always...
@kas thanks, and sure you can!
@kas Thanks for posting the Rockweed atricle. Interesting read. Especially for a east coast Techie like me.
@kas not as far as I know but @skingrapher txtnish keeps picking up the old URL from someplace and sticking it back in his following file.
@kas OEIS is great fun. i remember ages ago playing "guess the sequence" on IRC, taking turns posting sequences and trying to work out the pattern
@freemor @kas (re revert internet) That would be awesome. 😀
@skingrapher @kas with sites like that it's not surprising that there is a resurgence of Gopher.
@freemor @kas re: whatif... non-viewable without JS... with JS too and blocked cookies: only a blank page
@kas re: whatif... a site totally non-viewable without JS, that spells loose wrong and that only seems to have 3 services. For something that is clearly an important conversation, Could be better.
@kas (re #OSH) Switching shells is the reason that I started deploying scripts in /usr/local/bin rather than defining aliases. :D Tested #bash #ksh #fish and #zsh and the latter it is now for years already.
@kas (re #OSH) thx, very interesting. But I'll stick with #ZSH as I am in group 1: https://www.oilshell.org/blog/2018/01/28.html#toc_2
@freemor @kas (re blloc) Uh they are sponsored by German authorities.
@kas Yes, also it doesn't work at all with JS disabled. All you see is a blank page...
@kas, I didn't think you are affiliated with it. Just wondered as I didn't see what was special about it but I had to use a search engine to find out that the OS is Android. :D
@kas (re blloc) Seems to be just another android phone.
@kas Reform DIY looks interesting hope the price comes in at a good range.
@kas Thanks for the communication link!
@kas I've been mulling the the whole serverless E2E IM thing. (trying to keep in mind non tech savvy users) and the problem keeps coming down to rendevouz for NAT'd/Gateway'd clients.
@kas I looked at Rumble too but figured I'd have the same issue as I'm quite rural and not in a very tech savvy place.
@kas, @freemor (re: Matrix/TOX/P2P): Uh, never heard of #rumble or #scuttlebutt. Will have to look into it at some time.
@kas @freemor (re: Matrix) I'm not convinced of P2P for messaging as it usually drains the battery of your mobile.
@kas @freemor (re: Matrix) Me prefers #xmpp too. My tests with #matrix and #tox were all unsatisfying.
@kas (re WFC) yeah :( but there's plenty of forks, and the algorithm from the README doesn't sound *too* bad to try reimplementing, so I might give it a shot some weekend
@kas, nice. But do they support #dnscrypt at https://1.1.1.1?
@kas git-dit definitely looks interesting. Might be nice if that caught on
@kas just had the time to watch: The Codes of Gender (2010) ■ https://youtu.be/Zxxvr0ex8MI - Excellent! Thanks of posting it.
@kas Proseline reminds me of draftin.com
@kas I have seen the pro-lignan material, however, statements such as 'in males consumption of flaxseed will likely reduce testosterone in doses higher than 2 tablespoons per day. In women there seems to be no concern and ...
@kas Soy, flax, and chia seeds are the most hormonal of foods. In particularly they contain a heavy dose of lignans, a type of plant estrogen. As a middle-age male, I avoid all three.
@kas except for the flax, I will give this mix a try! thanks man
@kas joined the #twtxt #xmpp room and doubled the amount of users. :D xmpp:twtxt@chat.mdosch.de?join
RT @kas $NO_COLOR #CLIhttp://no-color.org/
@kas, but I don't know about #bornholm. Maybe you mistake me with someone else?
@kas, sure you can. But so far I am also not overactive here. :D
@kas yes indeed it would.. let me change that.
Discoverability suggestion ammeded to include @kas's suggestion about metadata and to change to filename to follow @mdom's existing we-are-twtxt.txt format
@kas Thanks for noting that. I was aiming for wearetwt.txt (it was typed late at night. I'll edit it in a bit once I get some coffee in me)
@kas So, which ukulele did you buy? If you need a tutorial, i really enjoy <http://www.ukulele-arts.com/lernen/solo-crashkurs/>.
@kas Yes, odd indeed it's the same for me even I have to use the keybase:// URL to clone it.
@kas I doubt it'll work but feel free to try a push
@kas Thanks. and cool means that I can have semi public Git Repos there (semi public because people would need keybase).
@kas or other keybasers that are interested, can you try: git clone keybase://public/freemor/pubgit.git and let me know if it works. Trying to see if public git repos are possible. Thnks
@kas Some of them are still evolving like kbRead. so ya might want to check back in every now and then.
@kas you can find them in my public keybase folder under Keybase_scripts if you want to take a look.
@kas I made my own scripts for running/building/etc keybase so mine mounts to ~/keybase
@kas @quite I have the same. I make steel cut oats in 5 minutes (+up/down). It's amazing. Chicken stock in about an hour.
@kas Pressure cooking... you doing it? What kind of pot?
@kas I'm so bad at tuning by ear. I have a tuner that just shows me if i hit the tight tone... :)
@tomasino (re: server logs) Some twtxt clients set the username in the User-Agent header, e.g.: “PytGet/0.1.0 (+https://enotty.dk/twtxt.txt; @kas)”
sure @kas :) thanks @mdom! @pete \o
@kas I paid 170 Euros with bag, but if you're a beginner i would buy a something for between 50 and 100 Euros. Just don't by the cheap ones
@kas Not sure about the size though. The most known is sopran but i started with concert and still thought it was too small. #ukelele
@kas - do you know where @tokipana is hosted? I can't find the twtxt file
@kas Thanks! I'll do that
@kas thanks. followed
@kas... That was Hilarious! thanks for posting the link
@kas first one yes, Second one no.
@kas 'Used to know' was agreat way to end the day. Thanks.
@kas Re: MobileCoin. Interesting but Bob calculating the Private key from the Public key seems kinda broken. Usually being able to derive the PrivKey From the PubKey is very very very bad
@kas Circles looks interesting.. I'll definitely have to read more about it Tomorrow.. Too late right now.. brain must sleep
@kas yes, exactly. my wording was a bit clumsy, wasn't it...
@kas I was asking for gopher:// urls to be auto linked from text in tweets shown on twtxt.xyz, I do not understand your statement.
@kas Re: IPFS, Thanks good to know.. saves me spending a few hours to find out its still painful.
@kas Thats kinda coll in and of itself. BTW. Since you play with IPFS, Is it still terribly SLowww? It was almost painful last time I tried it.
@kas Noted. I'll have to keep an eye on that. I guess KBFS people could just access it from the KBFS
@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.
@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.
@kas I agree with the person that described DST as 'Cutting off one end of a blanket, and sewing it to the other end in an attempt to make the blanket longer'
@kas spot on with the "blame the victim" article on security.
@kas I guess what I mean is, ‘mentions’ don’t actually do anything.

@kas I do remember that taste ... also from much more recent years :)
@kas Wow, grain mill, hardcore #baking
@kas no knead bread is awesome, and very flexible in the recipes!
@kas I ignored dat until now since it is implemented in nodejs but they have an URI scheme, I need to dig a bit more

@kas I'm not currently using a handrolled client, but I've started a couple.
@kas Yes, I know I am!
(last post was @kas)
@kas thanks, man. I hadn't looked at the bots yet, pretty cool
@kas I like the personal touch that we are greeting new users! Hi, @leveck
@kas greetings! do users get notified of mentions?
@kas cool about the #reflectables but seriously $125 !?! I'll just go on Amazon, Search retro reflective tape, and save myself about $100
@kas yes please\!

@kas (re: phone) BQ Aquaris X. Looks nice, has all features I want (fingerprint reader, NFC), works fast. Hope it will last for at least 2 years, a smartphone quickly becomes outdated if aged 2 years or more.
@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.
@kas the idea is interesting, too bad self-hosted email is still a PITA I don't want to deal with

@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

@kas so you'd better ask about the performance of Raspberry Pi, not the laptop, right? You'd find much more people who use Raspberry Pi, but you'll find little of those who use that laptop. @everyone so... how about the pe...
@kas pi-top FAQ says it's techically RPi3, which is much cheaper than pi-top itself.
@kas (re: pi-top) looks a bit gimmicky tbh...
@kas isn't Mysterium yet another Tor, but with relaying others' traffic being mandatory?
@kas nice QOTD.. I'll hve to remember that one.
@kas Saodaj, very good song! Need to check this out more
@kas XMPP is okay nowadays if both server and client support XEP-0198 (stream management), roster versioning and XEP-0352 (Client State Indication). Those allow XMPP to compress rarely used stuff like rosters, etc, and sen...
@kas at this point we don't have a choice. XMPP is being pulled down by legacy servers, clients and their users (just look at the implementation status of modern protocol extensions like XEP-0384), so reimplementing XMPP i...

@kas where could I get more info on the ssb go client?
@kas erm... the idea of implementing chat protocol like XMPP in HTTP/JSON is already implemented and know as Matrix.
@kas thanks! ;)
@kas your feed doesn't meet the spec then, does it?
@kas here we go again! #ArchLinux #wankload
@kas nice! I was trying to figure out how to do something similar with openssl s_client, so that's saved me some effort :)
@kas I'll have to give this scuttlebot thig a try I guess
oh looks like @kas is using the @mdom metadata as well :) Looks like we have a standard haha
@kas That's a heavy price tag. Otherwise it would be an instant buy just to test it, but i guess that's why you ask... :)
@kas - yes you can add me to we-are-twtxt
@kas Thanks for formulapot, i definitely try an after shave as sonn as my stash is used up.
@kas re:formulapot That is really cool. I'll have to try some of those.
@kas But with a detached sig i have to download two files for every feed and wait for parsing the twtfiles and downloading the sigs before i can display anything.
@kas Aww, now i have to keep the test line to preserve context... :)
@kas. Thats rough. give me full on or full off, but on again, off again.. thats just irritating. Hope they get it sorted
New stuff in #txtnish: Better argument parser, automatic url rewriting for redirects and a new silly mode that let you share urls like @kas
@kas Thanks for the explanation!
@kas Now i'm really confused, is there anything special scuttlebut is doing over mdns? Because dat and ipfs both supports file sharing over local links.
@kas Doesn't Scuttlebut also needs a central server if both clients are not on the same network?
@kas And it looks like dat also supports mdns for local discovery and custom bootstrap servers. Too bad though.
@kas thanks for Nyboma! Cheeky song, contagiously happy :)
@kas Haha, every single rule of share the seeds is probably cannabis related without explicitly mentioning it.
@kas Haha, every single rule of share the seeds is probably cannabis related without explicitly mentioning it.
maybe enotty.dk / @kas is refusing the connection because there is no PTR record?
@kas what #beaker is using for a backend https://datproject.org/
@kas #beaker and #Dat both look like interesting projects.. but why is everything in JS these days.. <sign>
actually I think twtxt.xyz is working fine, its just that enotty.dk is timing out from my server. Has the IP been blocked or something @kas?
@kas, indeed, and no mobile port as of now, where its off-the-grid property would shine

@kas are you sure you picked up a working pub?
@kas (re: #gitly) its probably a single binary that do all stuff (https/git server etc.)

@kas ROT13:`Guvf vf gur fcrp` #ROT13 #spec
@kas If i'm reading http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-3.5 correctly, the character ':' is explicitly allowed
@kas Yeah, i though about adding it for the future ncurses frontend. Maybe i could also add the urls as comment in txtnish reply.
@kas You could probably use the rfc3339 timestamp, i just used epoch as this was suggested by someone (buckket?) to link to individual tweets.
@kas But you're right, just using the timestamp would be way more human friendly and the parsers already know how to handle rfc3339.
@kas my current username is Monday, oh I remember now, I've found twtxt in your public repo list after you linked qtime :) FYI @mdom
@kas sure, thanks!
@kas I'm going to make that part of my prompt.
@kas The worst about dst? My daughter just wakes up exactly one hour earlier. I think adults adjust faster to time changes...
@kas (re: DST) At least it lasts only until end of october ;-)
@kas my bad - I've been developing a twtxt client, hence the frequent requests. I'm switching it over to use a fs cache for testing so I'm not hitting the twtxt files so much.
@kas #python What did you expect? Looks sane to me.
@kas (re: Ghost) sharing on other social mediums than #twtxt will decrease your CHA by 3 points
@kas Yeah, I loved my Nokias.
@kas A non-smart but not totally dumb phone. think something like a 90's flip phone (Alcatel A392CC)
@mdom, @kas, etc. Thanks for all the great work on #Txtnish
@kas (re: br2049) I can't remember any sequel released 35 years after the first movie which was really good
@kas I have a kobo, but i actually need it to read books. I bookmarked the page in case i ever get a replacement... :)
@kas There was something on hn a few days ago: Ask HN: Cheap, hackable e-reader? ⌘ https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=13863046
@mdom At the top I would have “# nick = kasn# url = https://enotty.dk/twtxt.txt” or “# nick = @kas”.
@kas Then let's just say it has to be on top to make it easy. I'm not even sure how to encode follow? # follow = mdom https://domgoergen.com/twtxt/mdom.txt looks wrong.
@kas (re: twtxt specs) I hope we're talking about horizontal whitespace? :)
@kas, @benaiah Should metadata always be at the start of the file or can it be interspersed with tweets?
@kas multitail can be an option
@kas (re: fifo) I'm curious how you update you're timeline
@kas try `less +F`
@kas try `less +F`
@kas Isn't the F-key in less enough?
@kas you can simply press F in less to tail the current file
@kas I love that quote.
@kas that sounds fair to me.
@mdom, @kas re: metadata, I'm (obviously) in favor of my suggestion for metadata-in-comments, but I don't think we should have comments _in_ comments.
@mdom, @dave, @kas I agree with the "no max length; show at least 140chars" idea.
@kas (re: metadata) The amount of whitespace around the equal sign shouldn't matter. Wouldn't be a comment above the line not enough? <# nick = mdom # my nick> looks weird.
@dave, @kas I thought about propsing "There is no maximum length of a message. Clients should show at least 140 characters of a tweet after collapsing the mentions." Or something like that.
@kas I check reednj on my phone at work more than I do the client on my laptop at home.
@kas I know you can read more than 140 with a client, but do the aggregators support that?
@kas I liked the idea that the reader's client should enforce the length limit.
@kas Always fun debugging live. ☺
@kas This is a 140 character tweet with a mention to see if I got the logic right in my function to ignore mentions. Brevity is the soul of wit.
@kas Or I need to subtract mentions from the character count.
@kas Yeah, I should disable the cutoff or type less. Sorry.
@kas Besides, I learned a lot about timestamps because your leapsecond tweet broke my timeline. So, thanks =D
@kas It's not more difficult to create and it's way less effort to parse.
