Good morning to you all! Rain is still poring down, tired of getting wet each time I go outside. heh.
Going to rain all weekend it seems, but then next week it’ll get better. Hoped the rain would stop this weekend, but it seems like it wont.
Good morning! Yet another rainy day in South Norway..
@email@example.com first time I’ve seen someone mention gnu taler. Been following it since it was announced:) never used for anything other then testing though.
@firstname.lastname@example.org thank you :) he’s always happy and ready to go on adventures!
How are you all doing today?
@email@example.com thank you! Hard to take pictures of him on walks, because he cannot stand still, haha. Had to use a treat to take this one.
Woke up early, got out and walked the dog, came home and our daughter had cleaned up her room, the kitchen and livingroom while I was out. She did that because I told her yesterday that I wanted to tidy up her room today. So she wanted to surprise me by doing all this today. That was really nice of her. :)
Time to play some PUBG! :)
Weekend is here :)
I want to create a frontpage for my website - https://stigatle.no , fix cmake script for the desktop client and compile it on debian. Other then that I’ll walk the dog as usual and spend quality time with my family. Going to be a great one :)
@firstname.lastname@example.org thank you!
I have cleaned up the timeline a bit, I like this much more.
I use the markdown text now, instead of the ‘text’ field in the json file, looks much cleaner.
I can work with this. One thing that I want to sort out next is the way the nicknames and url is shown.
Also links in posts should be clickable - not sure if the current labels support that, but I’ll try and figure it out somehow. Anyways - latest screenshot is attached here.. :)
I will spend a evening replacing the GUI library. FLTK is a pain when it comes to getting the strings the way I need them. I think Ill try gtkmm or nanogui.
The reply button works from my application! I think it’s really fun to work on this. Yarn’s great API makes it fast to to develop for! :)
Working on things again today, made the timeline layout a bit better, now I’ll work on the reply button, makes it more useful to use :)
@email@example.com Keep us updated as you think about what to do about activitypub! :) Also - what ever you decide to do - I totally understand.
@abucci and a lot of advancement has happened since 2015..
@abucci exit nodes and tor traffic that is contained within tor network is two separate things. And I do know what I’m talking about. I ran a exit node for a long time, rented vps in sweden, police raided there, then came at my door the next morning because someone sent angela merkel a threatening email through my exit node. Blocking exit nodes does not shut down hidden services because hidden service traffic never leaves the tor network.
@abucci anyone can run a exit node. Show me a case where a hidden service was taken over without regular investigation etc.
The biggest darknet markets where taken down due to misconfigurations or mistakes leading them to leak IP and such , not because tor is compromised or that some agency ran a exit node.
A hidden service’s traffic never goes through a exit node, only passes through middle nodes and everything stays encrypted.
@abucci how? Monero + tor or i2p. Try and block that.
Just see the total hashrate on the network, then figure out how many cpu’s you need to get over 51% of that rate - you then know what it would cost :)
Also - nice to see a monero discussion, it’s my fav cc. Also like it a lot because of the asic resistance that is built in.
monerodfrom hogging on my CPU. I'm on DragonFly BSD,
cpulimitdoesn't works, also
nicedoesn't. I believe this is an IRC question.
Often people run a node somewhere, then connect to it with the remote node feature from other machines. Or use a light wallet.
Cpu use will go down when block chain is synced. Also just a tip - check the prune blockchain feature to save a lot of space.
Well, the code for getting and setting the avatar works.
I need to align things better though. But cool that it works.
And mostly whether it’s even a good idea at al, and if we should continue or not?
I think that activitypub in yarn is a great feature! And also one of the easier ones to set up and get going.
And as I said last week - I think it’s a important features - and will drive adoption.
It is optional as well - so if one does not want it - just not turn that feature on.
I personally was missing the fact that I could not easily follow others before you added activitypub, but now I can choose to follow them, which is great.
Oh, and also image upload needs to be done.
Got some time for coding today, dog is resting a bit, and kids are busy.
Today I’m resuming on the timeline, I’ll see if I can fetch and show the avatars next to the statuses.
And I’ll see if I can get a reply button to work, also need to clean up stuff that I’ve done so far.
A bit of duplicate stuff that can be simplified etc.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Yeah, that did not work well it seems.
So my status above looks like this in fltk because of the @
Soooo… Fltk uses @ symbol in strings to apply effects to text, now wonder I’ve been having issues with the timeline.. https://www.fltk.org/doc-2.0/html/group__symbols.html
@ is used for mentions and all that stuff, so well - it just breaks the strings in the labels.
A lot of more work needs to be done, but at least now I got the basic timeline stuff done, took a good while to figure out how to solve it, but now I know. The reason why the statuses are cut short on some is because of html tags and stuff like that - c++ is a bit picky with strings and stuff like that. but I’ll get that sorted as well.
At least I can show the first screenshot. Keep in mind the GUI is not at all finished, I’m working on the basics first, implement all the features, then I work on finishing touches.
