I'd be immensely interested in a period Fidonet (or even better: PODSnet) admin giving their thoughts on the Fediverse.

It's been 40 years and we're basically rebuilding the same concept a bunch of layers up the OSI model.

Sitting in a hard uncomfortable chair in a bleak monochrome box being pumped full of treble-boosted annoying music, surrounded in "Limit 30 minutes while consuming food" signs and realizing I actually hecking hate everything about this.

Huh Pleroma 2.4.5 dropped today and fixes the thing that prevents GotoSocial from federating with it.

I feel... shockingly nothing about this. I guess interop is good.

Someone posted a Youtube link of a low poly cat model slowly rotating to the tune of Funkytown at like 24kbps.

First I got slapped with a DMCA notice for the song saying I had to click through to the site, then two ads, then I got a popup going "Your browser is no longer supported" (Yes it is, your site is just bad). Then my CPU fans spun up trying to load all the site chrome.

Around here I began to think we went wrong somewhere.

That was a neat long weekend. I finished a thing that's been an albatross around my neck, built out an entire second project I had in my "It might be cool if..." list, did the social thing, celebrated a couple of things, and got some important things done around the house.

Now to see if I can carry that momentum through the rest of the year.

I went and thumbed through the Masto API docs and figured out websockets. Turns out I was able to just dump my CLI app's API query loop and replace it with the websocket and a callback to shove each event directly into my already written handlers.

Honestly I'm a small cleanup pass away from this actually being releasable code. I might do it.

Its targeted use is "`tail -f` for your timeline+notifications". No posting, no interactions. Each post can have a link built to a more full-featured frontend for that stuff.

food excursion

Felt like something something silly and extravagant today so we got in the car and drove the next state over to get lunch from this little hole in the wall Italian restaurant we patronized a lot when I visited this area in March looking for a place to live.

I wanted to check out the game store there that I liked so much back then, but it went out of business in the interim :(

On the plus side, gosh these overcast autumn days with brown and gold trees are pretty and comfy.

I was in the middle of rambling to roommates about the curtains that came with this place and how we replaced them and threw them in a closet and I said "And frankly they're brown and taupe and I hate them. I don't think I like brown, taupe, dark green ... in anything. I dunno why. I guess I don't like earth tones"

and at that moment it clicked for vee why I, in point of fact, don't like them.

Ground types >:E

I was playing with ideas for a profile banner and blatted this out and I'm kind of proud of it. I mean, all I really did was take a photo of a collector's edition Pokemon TCG deckbox, convert it to black&white, then crop, rotate and re-color it. But I dig it. Stylish.

Hm well I got to file my first GotoSocial bug. I completely carked GtS's internal consistency by adding some domain blocks thanks to my rant about Tumblr getting boosted far and wide.

I'm running HEAD on alpha software, this is to be expected.
