Philip K Dick: Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, does not go away.

What out there in society is in the process of having this tested? What else can we try to stop believing in if no longer believing in these things ends up working out?

my project `dat-gateway` has been in an infuriating state of flux for many months because it is an application context.

"a gateway? an application context? what?" you say, like a reasonable human being.

thanks to the horror of javascript, websites are applications, and the browser grants them powers based on their context. a gateway sharing archives under a single domain allows the web apps in those archives to read each other's data, because the browser assumes that one domain == one owner. thus a proper gateway cannot use a single domain, but must wildcard archive domain names. setting up this wildcard has been an excruciating process that i still haven't finished, and i'm fucking fed up with it. DNS is a trap.

i reject that websites should be applications, or that we should be building additional application contexts. software is SO BAD and feeding the monster won't fix it. all we want to do is share files, anyway.

Has anyone here used Qt5? I'm using Python-Qt5 and I want my program to load a URL and wait for an HTML element in the view before returning HTML. Any ideas?

It uses by @ayushsharma22 and a simple cron job every minute.

If you use PyEnv then you can make a bash script like so, and have the cron job call it:

#! /bin/bash
cd tweet-toot
source venv/bin/activate
cd tweet-toot

You can have cron log the output:
* * * * * ~/ >> ~/bird_toot.log 2>&1

โ€œIn the goodness of time, as all books become fully digital, everyone of them will accumulate the equivalent of blue underlined passages as each literary reference is networked within that book out to all other books. [...] Books will seep out of their bindings and weave themselves together into one large meta book, the universal libraryโ€๏ฟผ๏ฟผ

AWS Large Scale Incident going on. Ubuntu patch messed up, kernel panic in new AWS Ubuntu boxes.

Anyone else facing this?

I passed my AWS Solutions Architect pro exam :)

Any other AWS cert holders on this tootbox?

My Twitter->Mastodon relay project now supports more use-cases, thanks to some awesome feature requests.

1. Relay multiple Twitter accounts to the same Mastodon.
2. Relay multiple Twitter accounts to many Mastodons.
