So … our stores are running out of toilet paper. Again. I don’t know what to say.

@z3bra Yeah. It’s probably not intentional, though. HTTP is the only thing that exists in most people’s mind. Not sure anyone’s to blame. :) We can only try to improve it. (My client doesn’t support gemini either, because curl doesn’t support it …)

@z3bra One advantage of using HTTP for twtxt is easy discovery of other people: You can see who follows you be evaluating their user agent. How could we translate that to Gopher? Add a search parameter?

@prologic (#wo72vra) Yeah, agreed. Plus, once it has reached a certain size, a directory is pointless anyway: You can use it to find people you already know, but not new ones, ’cause there are just way too many options.

@prologic I do follow you, but not from within twtxt.net, just my client on my workstation. The “vain” account on twtxt.net was just me getting to know the platform. :)

PSA: If you use OpenBSD httpd, use “log style combined”. The manpage doesn’t mention it, but it will log User Agents, so you can see other twtxt users following you. 🎉️

Will now read some of OpenBSD httpd’s code to see if there isn’t a way to log User Agents after all.

Well, here’s a thing: I find out about most new twtxt users, because @prologic sends them a welcome message. 🤔️ A directory of twtxt users in human form.

Now. Out of coffee. Have to go out, slash through the herds, and get some new. 🧟️😷️ #TheWalkingCovids

OpenBSD httpd can’t log user agents, which makes one of the “discover” features of twtxt a bit difficult. Meh. (Or can it?)
