re: Mastodon / activitypub coding question, boosts welcome 

@lanodan Ah yes, we should mention "generic AP server" are "fightin' words", or a "meme".

@Gargron @mariusor @AllNyaNoBite @dumpsterqueer

@dumpsterqueer yep. Also, S2S+C2S tends towards the servers being "pass through" or "generalized" bricks of storage which I think more closely aligns with SOLID (of which I know nothing) and means clients are richer (as @Gargron said), which is not today's web paradigm.

I personally would rather jump straight to P2P where server==client and so only AP S2S is needed. But requires far more eng work.

Mastodon / activitypub coding question, boosts welcome 

@dumpsterqueer I'm not sure if this was documented from or on the socialhub.activitypub.rocks/ but the main barrier is custom features. There is also some unanswered questions with regard to the spec around feature detection, pagination/diff-ing, and other barriers that maybe @lanodan or @mariusor know, as they've experience too.

If I had a gaming computer, I would play Valheim. They used Amon Amarth in their trailer, good enough for me.

YouTube Shorts recommendations suck. It thinks "Girls With Guns" and "Singles With Guns" and other weird sexually predatory political content will get me to click. Also who the hell makes this kind of content.

Man the SocialHub got suddenly active. Glad to see that we've regained a voice there.

Is having a lot of citrus peels in compost problematic, or does the citric acid break down? I don't want acidic soil.

spicy MMO take 

@stolas Pretty sure this is the tamest of takes for ex EvE Online players.

The pandemic has taught me that I can pull off having long hair. But oh lawdy is it hard to maintain.

Looked at the possibility of building a PC for the first time in 10 years. Old one lasted 7 years (passed onto my younger brother) and my small underpowered laptop is several years old and cannot do some personal research workloads I'd like.

But 2 days looking into stock levels and pricing of computer parts makes me realize the silicon industry and market is currently near nonexistent, with supply side issues. So I'll try again in 6 months.

In the meantime, more books.

Ich hoffe, dass heute einen schรถnen Tag ist. Ich fรผhle mich ein bisschen schlecht.

Lots of snow. Means I play outside with the dog. Haven't been online so much the past few weeks.

@sl007 I believe Mastodon is configurable as mastodon.technology increased the limit to 512 to be an even power of 2.
