In-reply-to » Started my day with getting all the materials I need to build a deck, dog yard will be built on top of that. That way our dog can be outside by himself when we go out and do stuff etc, gonna be nice! you mean, you don’t want the dog mauling everything in the house while you are away? 😅

In-reply-to » @movq Hda to look this up and after I had done so (successfully after some improvements to the search engine) I am convinced that this is the right path to go down in terms of "I want to see old stuff" 😅 having to go to search to read an older conversation is inefficient, unseemly, and an overall poor user experience. There has to be another way, right?

In-reply-to » Heya folks 👋 For those of you that have accounts on my pod (, I'm going to be deleting 235 accounts today:

Spring cleaning! 😊

In-reply-to » Well! My 24 hrs without a GUI Web browser was quite of a nice experience. As a matter of fact, and as long as I'm not doing any 3D work, I kind of don't need gui applications as much as it feels like. off topic, I think you are using hard wrapping, or something similar, on mutt/neomutt. The formatting of your twts come up a little off. Specifically, the line wraps.

In-reply-to » Wow, it's crazy how many people already delivered donations for our scout flea market today. Collecting and delivering officially starts tomorrow, today was just the setup. Covering the floor of the town's multipurpose hall, transporting and arranging beer tables and benches, setting up sign, that sort of thing. this almost made me choke:

But on the flipside, we’ve also been abused as dumpsters again. Some asshole brought us a deep fryer. With the oil still in it. Unfortunately, we discovered that too late.

In-reply-to » I made some improvements to the Twtxt Search service tonight. Hopefully this update makes it a bit easier to use and resolves some of your critical pieces of feedback @lyse 🤞 The main idea being that by default the search is basically a "Query String" type search, meaning that it does what you expect. If you search for a simple term, it'll do that, If you enclose your search term in "double quotes" it'll search for that phrase. If you then want to search against specific fields you can do so with for example. I hope this makes the useability much better 👌 under maintenance now.

In-reply-to » @mckinley I am curious now, though. Doesn't Synology use RAID Btrfs? How in the world do they do it? Researching...

Ha! Found it:

Due to the Btrfs RAID issues, Synology chose Linux RAID. Based on the diagram below, Synology has implemented the layers in between the file systems and disks to ensure that Synology has full control to achieve the highest stability.

In-reply-to » @bender What would make standing up Yarn even easier? I can think of a few things that people might struggle with: a Domain, Pointing the domain at something valid, Maybe a reverse proxy setup. Running yarnd itself is just downloading a binary and configuring it (which could also be easier) I remember when I first ran Yarn on arrakis, it was a mess. Remember I had to start it again from scratch? If I were to run Yarn today, I will have to ask you what -u to use, if I am going to run a web server on it (say, Caddy), and what to do to keep the huge cache Xuu and I like. LOL. Granted, I could figure it out myself after some trial and error too.

To make Yarn install easier? An installer script that would prompt for the settings, generate config, and install the systemd, because, whether we like it or not, the biggest Linux distros around use it.

In-reply-to » @bender Damn, I got caught. :-D mind it, English is my second language, though I have been using it since 1992, almost constantly.

“Next weekend”, is the weekend after the one coming up. The one coming up is “this weekend”, or simply “the weekend” (as in, “see you this weekend!” or “will mow the lawn on the weekend”). I don’t like the perceived ambiguity of it, thus I strictly use dates (“lets get together on Saturday, 4 May 2024”). 😅

Is there something simpler, and leaner, than Gitea, which will allow me to see (as in read only) git repositories nicely on a web browser? Preferably a one-file-only solution, written in Golang.

In-reply-to » @bender well there is "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"! I usualy hear people ask Harry Mack (a freestyle rapper) to include it in his freestyles. 😆 hahahahaha! Good findings. Yes, most of them are invented, and medical/drug related. The kick with the German ones is that they summarise an entire paragraph, with not just meaning, but also feelings, and–hypothetically–hard to describe extra meanings rather difficult or impossible to translate to other languages.

In-reply-to » We have great April weather over here. Yesterday sun, rain, sun, rain, sun, hail, sun, hail, sun, rain, etc. It didn't hail today, but sun alternatd with rain a bunch of times. Went out this evening and boy, what an absolutely gorgeous scenery!


Wow, so pretty, dude! The one you used on this twt (tiny photo too, not sure what happened here) doesn’t make justice to the entire set. Very good clicks there!

In-reply-to » Well, I don't use Yarn/ anymore, although I read the homepage a few times a week to catchup on anything interesting. you wrote:

Then you do use it, no? Right? :-D

I barely twt from my PHP instance.

Because PHP sucks! See what I did? I am “encouraging” engagement! :-D

… it’s too superficial to have a meaningful conversation.

Microblogging is often the antithesis of meaningful. You talk about everything, and anything you want. Even to the void. You have done it!

Yarn is niche. With it’s forks, and yarns, it comes across as a “weird” microblogging for some (weird was the word a friend from Philippines used to refer to Yarn). The UI/UX has issues (I am not an expert, but I would say copying “the others” and slightly adjusting to give Yarn it’s own uniqueness should work), and that keeps people away. The cache blows, I want to be able to see everything, at all times. The built-in search blows, I want a more “ala Google” kind of search. There is more, but you get the gist.
