Pinned toot

I keep phase-changing between being serious and being silly... and too rapidly at that I think...

Is it okay if I don't follow as many people as I find so that I get followed by as many people as possible?

Because I don't want to follow as many people as I find, nor do I want to be followed by as many people as possible.

I've been traumatized by that game and I don't want to play anymore.

Be water. Rock breaks, water flows. Nothing has to fall apart, and even if it does none of it matters.

Be water.

I decided to make a cropped version of this so that it would be more, uh, SFW and I can post it on Insta without my uncles & aunts getting on my back etc., etc.

I made a desktop wallpaper based on a chapter of Alain de Botton's "The Book of Life" and a 17th century Dutch painting featured in the chapter. This is a square crop of that wallpaper.

Kalau mau, bagi film G30S jadi dua bagian. Pertama putar G30S part one. Habis itu putar Jagal. Lalu putar G30S part two. Lalu kasih film Senyap.

Nonton maraton. Enak. Terus tiap satu setegah jam break. Ya kan. ๐Ÿฟ

TNI AD Respons Gatot: Hanya Presiden Berhak Pecat KSAD cnn.id/331945

โ€”โ€”

Kata Gatot: "Pecat KSAD kalau tak berani gelar nobar film G30S PKI".

Boleh aja kalo mau puter film G30S kata gw sih, tapi bareng sama film "Jagal" dan "Senyap" ya. Harus dua-duanya, kan sama-sama G30S panjangnya tiga jam juga.

I effectively have full authority over my personal mindscape. I am no longer gaslighted.

I actually built a little toy service (that I will also eventually open source) which converts any RSS feed to an ActivityPub actor that you can subscribe to in Mastodon (or any other AP-compatible client).

Play with it if you like! It is SUPER rough and most feeds end up horribly rendered in Mastodon but it's still kinda cool to see it work: bots.tinysubversions.com/conve

I'm happy to announce that my barebones ActivityPub server, implemented in Node.js/Express, is now open source! I intend for it to be a reference implementation for developers who are adding ActivityPub to their own services, but also it is an application server that you can build on if you want.

In other words, t's a few hundred lines of code that lets you create Mastodon-compatible accounts that can accept follow requests and post stuff to their followers.

Disclosure: I've long hated the "Always Be Closing" mantra; feels too "homo homini lupus" to me. Somewhat barbaric, I would dare say of that version of ABC.

I like the version in LB (last boost) though. Much better.

A- Always
B- Be
C- Committing decisively to a single interpretation of the indeterminable manifold of existence, giving up at each moment an infinite array of possibilities, but receiving in exchange the irreplaceable treasure of self-assertion, of resolutely forging ahead through the darkness, radiantly being who you are.

Oh nice! We now have a @nocontextspongebob bot on the Fediverse; thanks @spud much appreciated ๐Ÿ‘Œ

(Wonder if there's a No Context Simpsons somewhere here, like the one over at :twitter: )

The internet's idealists don't give up; they just change tactics. I guess the Semantic Web is part of that tradition.

Also, Mastodon adding support for rel=me links is extremely Semantic Webby.

Great post. Lot of history there I wasn't aware of.

@kemonine

sounds intriguing...

(And I notice it has a hosted server at wallabag.it, in addition to the option of hosting it on one's own private server etc.,etc.)

*adds wallabag.org to *

*will investigate further tomorrow, since it's 3:18am where I'm at r/n*
