Weekend getaway in Vermont. We drank some whiskey at the Whistlepig Distillery tasting room, then hiked to Moss Glen Falls for some fall foliage. I think Vermont is more or less all about food, booze, and trees, which is basically my dream vacation.
From Bloomberg's feature on the Chinese microchip hack :
> When a server was installed and switched on, the microchip altered the operating system’s core so it could accept modifications.
Hardware people, is this even possible? I'm a software guy, so I don't know what I'm talking, but this seems really implausible to me.
Here's the full setup:
- start the mysqld process
- start either the httpd process or a php -S localhost:5000 in /srv/http
- run vagrant start and vagrant ssh -c "cd /vagrant && foreman start in ~/mastodon
- make sure that /etc/hosts redirects mastodon.local and www.mastodon.local to 127.0.0.1
- start nginx to proxy requests to localhost to localhost:3000
- run ngrok http 5000 to get a tunnel to the wordpress instance that mastodon can use
Now WordPress and Mastodon can talk to each other...
My barely-coherent notes on what I finally figured out (running WordPress on localhost:5000 and Mastodon in a VM with port forwarding to localhost:3000) (1/2)
Running a Mastodon instance in Vagrant and trying to get it talk to a local WordPress instance (directly on the host) has been an exercise in extreme patience. But at least I learned something...
I usually avoid social networks for self advertising, so forgive me.

So I'm getting really excited for Pterotype (my WordPress plugin that federates your blog via ActivityPub). I've got most of the ActivityPub infrastructure sorted out - you can send and receive activities via the outbox and the inbox, keep track of shares and likes, etc. I need to figure out authentication, then the next step will be spinning up a test instance and trying to federate with Mastodon!

I'm 8 minutes into the premiere. So far it's v. good.
Watching Solo for the second time. Star Wars still makes me feel kid-like excitement.
