Pinned toot

I write some stuff on my blog every now and then (and on my gemlog on the same domain). I dislike reminding people of my existence every time I post something, so I won't be peddling it for every post :) But here it is, in case someone's interested: warmedal.se/~bjorn/

Definitely a non-problem, really, but:
- I enjoy writing articles for my blog/gemlog.
- I like the longer, more thoughtful, articles better than the shorter ones.
- But I often have no idea what I’d like to write about!

Initiative to ban mass biometric surveillance in EU

European citizens campaign to prohibit biometric mass surveillance practices
reclaimyourface.eu/

This is one of the few posts I put publicly and I ask for a Boost!

If you are from EU or you know EU people, it could be interesting.
This is not an usual random web petition, this is an official ECI (European citizens initiative)

Bitcoin is just like using your card to buy something… if every transaction cost you ~$50 and used as much electricity as 1,000,000 VISA transactions (or more energy than the average US household uses in a month).

DynDNS and similar services work if you can figure out port forwarding, of course. But is there a turnkey solution?

I mean, a server install image could always auto-publish over Tor or some obscure distributed protocol (dat or IPFS, maybe?). But suppose that you want to selfhost your blog or wiki on your own hardware in your home, and have it available on the web..?

I often see projects aiming to make it easy to set up a server, but today almost everyone who wants to run a server have to rent a VPS.

I’m lucky enough that my ISP gave me a static public IP when I asked for it, and I’m skilled enough to set up port forwarding in my router. When scanning forum posts with newbie questions it seems clear to me that this is a BIG hurdle for a lot of people. Are there any solutions out there?

Wi-Fi devices set to become object sensors by 2024 under planned 802.11bf standard

"In three years or so, the Wi-Fi specification is scheduled to get an upgrade that will turn wireless devices into sensors, capable of gathering data about the people and objects bathed by their signals."

I bet there are lots of vim gurus here. Is there a way to automatically colour certain lines in vim? I.e. a setting to colour empty lines, or lines matching a regex?

Hey, fedi! I’m gonna hold a 10-minute talk at work about website bloat. How do *you* measure bloat? Is it the number of kB loaded? The speed of rendering? The number of calls made? The amount of JS loaded/used? The image:text ratio? Something else?

I’ve looked at webbloatscore.com as a starting point, and the oldie but goldie Motherfucking Website. Any other fun or interesting resources you’d like to point me to?

@pettter du som har koll på OStatus. Löser AvtivityPub några problem OStatus hade eller är det bara en återuppfinning av hjulet?

The wikipedia page on WebSub claims that Mastodon and diaspora* use it. Is this true? When and how do they use it?

Hey Fedi, what’s a good xmmp server to self host on a RPi 3B? The only one I know of is Prosody.

I'm revamping my internet presence. One *huge* (for me) step in that direction is to build my own platform for blogging/gemlogging. Next step is to divest myself of mod/admin roles in facebook groups and then dumping that platform altogether.

Maybe in a year I'll be so radicalized I'm running my own ActivityPub instance!

@kensanata Have you run anything yet this year? 🙂 I’m off for the first run of the year in a bit. It’s -10C and soooo beautiful! I’ll bring the phone and take some pics.

This pic is from my walk in the sunset (at 2pm) yesterday

15 more minutes of 2020! I can’t wait for it to be over!

2021, HERE I COOOOOME!

Me: I’m gonna write a simple CGI script! Feels fun!

Nginx: HAHAHAHA!! I don’t support that, dude.

... I guess I’m gonna rebuild my server config for lighttpd sometime in the near future *sigh* Does anyone know of a conversion tool or something for it?
