Dragged Marlyn and our kids out tonight to see the northern lights. Never seen it with my own eyes until tonight.
Today it’s cold, a bit of snow in the air. I’ll head out for a long walk in a bit, I’ll go a new place, a 9km trail. I’ll try to remember to take some pictures.
Wish you all a great Saturday!
Today I started my day getting up early, dog woke me up at 08:30, I then went for a 2 hour walk in the forest next to our city center. I hiked through there, down through the city and then around and back to the car. Was nice to see Nanook’s progress on walking through the main street, he’s can get overwhelmed there at times, and start to jump and nip etc, can be stressful when there is a lot of people around, because he’s a big dog. But I have trained a lot on that, because he does the same thing at a parking lot I usually walk through on our regular walks, so each time I’ve taken that walk I walk through there, and when he starts acting up I just ask him to sit, and when he sits he gets a treat, and we then resume the walk, if he walks fine he gets a new treat, if he acts up I tell him to sit again. I’ve done this over and over.. And now at our walk through the main street - I could do the same thing, so much less stressful :) And makes it a joy to walk there.
Finally weekend. Came home from work, walked the dog for an hour. Now it’s time to relax for the rest of the day :) Will probably sit on the computer a bit tonight. Not sure what I’ll do there yet, but I’ll figure something out for sure.
Did not expect anything less from meta. Pay or we will track you. Should be illegal.
My daughter started with indoor sand volleyball yesterday, she is now going to go there 2x a week, so happy that she found something she likes, her best friend started too - so they will go together there :)
I have not been feeling good the past two days, caught a cold. So yesterday I was very lazy, luckily the kids where busy with their things, and Marlyn took Nanook to the dogpark to let him blow off some steam. Today I feel much better, so I headed out early for a 5km walk in the forest with the dog before everyone got up this morning. When I came home my daughter went to her friends house, so she will probably be gone for the rest of the day, and my son is playing games with his friends. Its still raining a lot here, but I managed to do to the walk in between the rain. Now Im working some more on the laptop I installed OpenBSD on this weekend. Getting more stuff set up on it.
You can now click on a nick in the desktop client to open their twtxt file in browser.
How are you all doing today? :)
Finally went to a place I’ve been wanting to go to for a long time. There used to be train tracks here, but now it’s a gravel road and nature reserve. I had my biike and he ran for many kilometres. 2 degrees, rain, forgot my gloves, but it was all worth it :)
A storm is coming tonight as well, highest wind in 10 years… level orange all day tomorrow. Fingers crossed 😅
My son was with his friend playing soccer yesterday, his friend needed some medicine (broken tooth pain) - so he called home and his brother flew a drone with medicine to him and landed on the soccer field😁😂
Weekend is getting close!
We have a packed weekend for sure, but it’ll be a nice one :)
Hope you all get to have a nice day!
What are you all doing this weekend? Anything cool?
@firstname.lastname@example.org - I do not want to nag about it - but did you find some way to post image through curl? (Or could you share the almost-working solution that you tried?), if you have not had time - then that’s fine too. I want to start looking into it again :)
Another day, another terror war breaks out. Sickening videos and images getting out of there. So glad I do not live in a shithole wartorn place to be honest, but feel bad for those who live that way. Innocent people getting murdered every day for nothing.
We all went to sit by the ocean tonight, was nice to sit down together and enjoy the view.
Finally weekend again, gonna be nice!
I started working on a new scene (3D), I’ve wanted to make a short movie for a while, and I work on some of my ideas to get something started. Here is one of the scenes I made last weekend..
I’ll shut down this instance soon, I want to say thanks to all of you, especially @email@example.com . It’s been fun here, but I do not spend much time here anymore - cutting down on the things I host and use \ spend time on etc.
I’ve been using activitypub more - since it’s more or less replaced ‘x’ for me, and can be reached at:
@firstname.lastname@example.org here is what I got :
Bought myself a mountain bike today, first time (as a adult) that I have a really nice bike. it was on sale, and cost 1\3rd of the kickbike I kinda wanted. So after some thinking I decided that a bike is better for the dog (and me) then a kickbike. I assembled the bike and then went out so that he could have a long run, was awesome. I especially like it when he knows the commands I give (for left\right etc). So awesome to see him instantly know what I want him to do. He also ignored all people who walked or biked, and kept the pace throughout.
We had a wonderful day yesterday :) We went on this train for a ride (30 minutes each way).
Got contacted on instagram from someone who wanted to buy some of my images (NFT), I have been putting the images I liked the most into a collection (and add new ones when I take Images I think is good enough) into the collection. Just letting it sit there to see if I can make a sale one day.
Not sure yet if the person is serious or not - but If I could make a sale - then I’m all for it.
It’s much easier to put things up for sale as NFT then other ways.
I sell them as a 1 item thing. And put a price that I think is fair (Fixed price on all, but based on the amount of time I actually spend getting to all these locations).
One thing I have not liked about NFT is all the crap art stuff that there that takes 0 effort, but I do at least spend time picking out where we go. And each image has a memory attached to it, a trip with my family to that exact place..
today Its my 40th birtday :)
compiled and ran the desktop client on riscv tonight. my mangopi only has 512mb ram, but it was enough to compile and run it :)
Tidying up the house, throwing away all the clutter. Going to feel good later today when we’re done.
Russia attacks 200m from Nato border, you think Nato would react if the attack went 1 meter over the border?.. Or would they just come with excuses on why not to intervene?
I need to do a big rewrite on how the yarn desktop client handles the status widgets, this is because I want links and such, and to do that I have to rewrite the status message code, it takes a bit if time to do it, but I kinda know what to do - I just need to dive in and get it done. Been thinking about it for a while, I think it’s time to get started on it. Also makes the code much cleaner then what it is now.
Just compiled the Yarn desktop client on OpenSuse, was no issues getting it to run there, I love how portable it is. I initially wanted to run OpenBSD on this laptop, but it would not detect wifi, which is a dealbreaker for me, so I installed OpenSuse tumbleweed instead, and will run OpenBSD in a VM and try from there instead.
why am I not surprised?… https://uk.pcmag.com/ai/147757/elon-musk-will-train-his-ai-project-using-your-tweets
Today one crypto I invested in went up over 70%, the other 20%. The bank I have fucks us over with the current economy, and earns record amounts for themselves. This is why I put savings in crypto and not in the bank. Im not trying to come across as a cryptobro or anything like that with this post (I rarely write about it).
I had issues with the current activitypub implementation here on yarn (people could not follow me properly) and I cannot see their posts and stuff like that, so I decided to host activitypub separate from here.
So I will turn it off here - and use this site has as before - but without activitypub turned on, and then do all my activitypub stuff over on that other service.
I can be added through: @email@example.com
This does not affect the development of the desktop client, I will still work on that, I’m here to stay :) I just need a way to follow the others properly on the other services..
I did not want to join mastodon, and I did not want something complex to host, so I decided to set up Snac2 - https://codeberg.org/grunfink/snac2 . It’s super lightweight, easy to set up, and worked out of the box for what I was looking for.
so. if you join threads (meta’s new twitter clone) - then you cannot leave without nuking your instagram..
how are you all doing today?
This whole twitter thing got me motivated to code on the yarn desktop client.
Currently working on adding support for links in the post, so that you can open and view the links that are in the statuses. It’s a bit tricky to do - since I do not have ‘clickable links’ in the status label. So for now I added a dropdown that has all the links that are in a post, you can then select a link and then open it.
It’s not ideal, but I do it this way now so that I got all the parts I need. I will also check more into how I can add links directly on the status label.
@firstname.lastname@example.org No, they are not noisy. I have one of these my self as well, and it does not make much noise (can sleep in the same room). They are not like rack servers with turbo fans, hehe.
got two computers donated from work, xeon server machines. set them up for my kids. they do not know that ill give those to them yet. they have been asking about them, and asked if they can play roblox on them and such. they are going to be so happy tomorrow when they get the machines set up in their room tomorrow :)
been using the iphone for some days now, and I must say im impressed. I really like it. I will not buy android phone ever again.
seems like putin is having a shitty weekend.
Just ordered a new phone, making the switch from Samsung Android to Iphone.
Been a while since I’ve been excited about getting a new phone. Looking forward to it!
Hope you all are doing well! we’re enjoying the heatwave that has hit us. :)
wanted to use my oculus to do some flightsimming on Friday, but now Meta forces you over to facebook. super annoying message that constantly pops up in the desktop client, but then after 10 minutes of flying they show the same message in fullscreen inside the VR glasses. so fuck them. I will try and get it to work on linux instead one day soon when I have time.
Hehe, as you all might have noticed - I test OS’es often. NixOS was too much of a pain to work efficiently in (the way I wanted), so hopped over to Fedora now. Got all my stuff working there now, as well as the desktop client. I really like how portable the code is, and how easy it is to compile on different os’es. Installed fedora with LXQT, I really like that desktop, I do not like gnome at all - I really dislike the way gnome works. LXQT is just what I need.
We have Monday off work again, going to be super nice with a long weekend again! :)
We had a wonderful day by the ocean today.
