In-reply-to » Haha! I just wrote this reply using the firenvim extension :D

@prologic I wish an integration like this was a standard feature.

I used a plugin like this for a long time in the past, but eventually gave up on it. I have to use too many websites that insist on implementing their own editor widget. Google Docs, Confluence, stuff like that. 😞

In-reply-to » It’s been rainy and grim these last few days. This is so relaxing. 😍 Could be warmer, yes, but I’m slowly getting used to not heating the apartment a lot (because of energy prices here in the EU).

@prologic Ahh, nice, thanks. 😊 Looks like they were pretty lucky then. 😳

@akoizumi@social.kyoko-project.wer.ee I can’t fetch your feed anymore. 🤔 DNS doesn’t resolve. This is what I see in my bind log:

DNS format error from 38.87.162.177#53 resolving social.kyoko-project.wer.ee/A for 192.168.1.1#38972: empty question section

Trying a dig +trace … ends with:

couldn't get address for 'ns1.kyoko-project.wer.ee': failure

Since we’re on the brink of nuclear war anyway, I bought an electric double bass, because why the heck not:

Regular bass guitar for size comparison. That thing is huge.

I still suck at playing it, naturally, but it’s a looot of fun. And the posture is much more comfortable than that of a guitar, where you have to twist your left hand like a maniac. 🥴

In-reply-to » Boy, it was fricking cold with the wind today. Can't believe that just three weeks ago I was sweating like a pig. But the rain clouds were pretty nice. Only my camera struggled very much with these lighing conditions. Basically half of the images totally blurred.

@prologic The bird sits on a sign and at the bottom of the sign, there’s a bicycle with an arrow above it (pointing towards the bird). I changed the bicycle to an icon of a bird. 🥴

In-reply-to » For people born after the 90s (no one here I suppose), this was Active Desktop: Media Instead of a static image, show a Dynamic Web page refreshed every X minutes. Good memories of the old .com web portals of that age

@eaplmx Hmm, so these were just regular web pages? 🤔 Wasn’t there also a thingy called “Channels” or something, which was “special”? That’s what I had in mind … I vaguely remember this showing news from a local TV station …

I really don’t remember anymore. 😅

In-reply-to » Just noticed that Firefox now downloads feeds (Atom, RSS), which is a little less than helpful. 🙄

@eaplmx That’s such an interesting read – in retrospect.

when browser vendors push RSS so far to the sidelines, companies will respond by replacing RSS with Twitter and Facebook accounts.

That’s pretty much what happened eventually, isn’t it?

The blog post outlines a nice vision of how feeds could have been handled (show them on the browser’s start page and such). That would have been super userful for ordinary users. (Almost reminds me a bit of Microsoft’s “Active Desktop” back in the day. 😅 What did that use under the hood? Probably not RSS, that wasn’t around yet, I think?)

In-reply-to » Just noticed that Firefox now downloads feeds (Atom, RSS), which is a little less than helpful. 🙄

@eaplmx Ah, yeah, that is a bit older. To be honest, I kind of understand them there. Was the “live bookmark” feature ever useful? That wasn’t an actual feed reader, mostly because it lacked a “notification” mechanism (inform the user about new items).

It would have been nice if they hadn’t removed the indicator icon as well. You know, that little icon in the address bar that informs users when a web site offers a feed. Via that icon, users could discover the mere fact that feeds even exist.
