@xuu It looks pretty similar to a overcomplicated crypto-scam, which is probably what it is. I don’t have much faith in anything anymore, but I doubt the Internet is just going to degrade into it all being this. 🤨

@ullarah Technically you could use more special characters in the local part, but good luck getting this mail through other mail servers. Even nowadays e-mail address validation is completely broken on lots of websites and rejects even simple characters like +. A mate is constantly complaining about that, when he tries to sign up somewhere and wants to use a dedictated address for it to automatically move it into a certain folder. So you better limit yourself to alphanumeric, dot, minus und undercore. :-(

@movq It pops you modal message boxes with compilation errors in your face right while editing even though you didn’t press save. I had to use it once at my former employer. For this alone somebody should have been hung, drawn, quadrisected, revived, drowned, stabbed…

@ullarah It’s a new thing. I mean, e-mail easily predates Unicode anyway. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode_and_email My mail server (OpenSMTPD) doesn’t even support it yet. 😬

It never occurred to me that you can’t use æøå and the like for emails? Or was this a limitation back in the ye olde days?

I honestly have no clue where mine came from… It’s pronounced you-laah-rah though!

Had something to do with my folks farm back in the 90s. Searching for my nick reveals quite a bit over the past 10 years haha!

In-reply-to > @lyse My goal was to keep the files at “a few kilobyte”. 100 lines of twts gets you to around ~25 kB, so I went with that.

@movq Yes, the date is also quite important in my opinion since I will most likely go with a date based rotation. I need to check the numbers but maybe quarterly or in high-traffic months even monthly. Not sure yet.

In-reply-to > @fastidious Haha 😂 it was a long time ago and I don’t remember 🤣. I smashed two words together when I wa much younger than I am now programming logic

@prologic I always thought that the “logic” refers to the logic or logical thinking in programming and the “pro” could stand for “programming”. Quite close. :-)

@darch Cool! Up until now I went with the German “ch” instead of the “k”. Simplifies the pronounciation in my head a bit.

In-reply-to > So the evolution of my nick is as follows. I had a bicycle that had the word Zephyr written on it. Which means a western wind. That is related to the Greek god Zephyrus.

@xuu Quite evolved, cool story! I always pronounced it in my head as “xuu” with an actual “x”. Now I know better.

@thecanine Among the many things I do at work, creating VBA for Excel documents is the most frustrating thing ever… but when it works it’s both a miracle and makes me seem like a master wizard to my manager 😂

The real challenge would be to do them all in visual basic and not hang yourself during the first week. 😂

@prologic I didn’t give up entirely. 😁 Just didn’t reach my goal of doing it all in Rust.

I’m a bit surprised that each task has nothing to do with the previous one. You basically write a new program every day. That really promotes “quick and dirty” solutions. 🤔 I was expecting that the tasks build on each other, like, we’ll have a fully functional submarine at the end. 🥴 You probably didn’t expect that, either – I mean, your solutions in Go are waaaay over-engineered. 😂

In-reply-to > My feed has now been rotated. The code in jenny is still experimental. I’ll push it once I’ve tested it for a while.

FYI @fastidious @stackeffect

I pushed the experimental code to jenny’s public repo.

Be aware that it will rotate your files as soon as you run jenny -e or write a new twt. The default number of twts per file is 100.

I hope it’s bug-free, but if you find one, please tell me.

Date-based rotation is not yet implemented and I’m not 100% sure if I’m going to – do we really need that? The main goal of this feature is to keep the files small and I think that “number of twts” is a good measurement for this. But dates? When you write 100 twts per day, you’ll get huge files again. 🤷

In-reply-to > My feed has now been rotated. The code in jenny is still experimental. I’ll push it once I’ve tested it for a while.

@lyse My goal was to keep the files at “a few kilobyte”. 100 lines of twts gets you to around ~25 kB, so I went with that.

I’m not 100% sure about those file names. I certainly want to have the date in there. To avoid collisions, I included the hash. Another way to avoid collisions would be to just use the full date or a UNIX timestamp. 🤔

@prologic It’s very possible. I had to have you fix my password reset once before, too.
