Offpunk, an offline-first command-line client for the smolnet (Web, Gemini, Gopher, RSS…)

(this is the new official repository)

I’ve also got a bunch of updates I’ll be making to Watson – the best-practices elementary OS application template – based on my experiences in building Comet as a Vala app for elementary OS.

You can follow the issues here: github.com/small-tech/watson/i

Once those are done, I’ll consider Watson ~beta quality.

And once Comet has been accepted on AppCenter and I’ve added anything else I’ve learned to it (and hopefully got some feedback from the community), it should be ready for general use.

After a month, I feel more comfortable searching with
Neeva.com than I have in years of using Google, DuckDuckGo, Cuil (RIP), and others. Paying for a product makes the relationship clear. Everything old is new. My referral link: neeva.com/p/signup?o=s&c=c3dt5 or try it without my code -- I genuinely think it's great.

There was a new person at cribbage club tonight who had a board *tattooed on her arm* so she could play anywhere with just cards and a marker and I’m still not over it

PS. That’s the administration page, not what folks who want to sign up for a Small Web place will see. That’s currently this ;)

WAT?! You're telling me there has been a team at Facebook designing and implementing this feature, and not one person has stood up and asked:

"Uhm, isn't that super creepy, even for us?"

“Going forward, I will no longer be checking Twitter or responding on it … I plan to concentrate as much of my time and energy as possible on building the Small Web.”

How to identify the features that a system needs:

1. Use the system as-is
2. Notice over time that the lack of a feature is a conspicuous limitation
3. Implement the feature

How NOT to identify the features that a system needs:

1. Skim a blog post about the system
2. "It doesn't support $FEATURE? Ridiculous!"
3. Dismiss it outhand

Someone please buy booksin.space and turn it into a Gemini server full of public domain reading material

Why it's important to use a real email address for your sourcehut account: I just emailed a dozen people to tell them that their CI builds are going to break with the incoming deprecation of a build image. One of their emails bounced, and they're in for a nasty surprise when their shit starts breaking next week

I wonder how much better Prey (2017) would've done if it wasn't called Prey
