In-reply-to > Hi, all, stuff is good, I just renewed my hosting!

@adi Great! Glad to hear it. Coincidentally, I’m working on expanding my use of mkws today: writing a script to export a bunch of etherpads and incorporate them in my site. Lots of fun learning about awk’s gsub to make sure all the links in the pads are internally consistent in what mkws will output; felt particularly pleased when this line worked as expected:

awk '{gsub(/\/nfld.uk\/[a-zA-Z0-9_]*/, "&.html")}1' parsed_master.html > final_master.html

In-reply-to > Looks like my obfs4 bridge is getting some use! 🧅🌉 ^x^

@prologic Basically, it’s another way of connecting to the Tor network; bridges, generally, are non-advertised means of doing so, such that infrastructure operators’ blocking of public Tor nodes doesn’t prevent their customers from connecting to said network, should they choose to. The added benefit of an obfs4 bridge is that the Tor traffic over it looks random: https://support.torproject.org/glossary/obfs4/

In-reply-to > Really enjoying The Scout Mindset by Julia Galef, so far: https://pad.nfld.uk/p/thescoutmindset

@fastidious@arrakis.netbros.com Yeah, absolutely, that’d be the ideal, when I’m thinking about my new book club: https://pad.nfld.uk/p/bookclub_master

Either way, it’s about staying motivated to learn. I’m always on the hunt for recommendations; this one came via Tyler Cowen from Marginal Revolution iirc.

My reading has taken a massive hit since becoming a dad, though, believe me!

In-reply-to > I've (sadly, I know) been pulled back to Reddit by a neat app, and, well, I had no idea just how much effort folks are now going to to stage stuff for views; really a step-change (at least!) from when I was last exposed to public videos regularly.

@ullarah@txt.quisquiliae.com Oh, no! Must - not - look. >.< ^x^ It’s Infinity for Reddit, actually; don’t even know why it grabbed me, if I’m honest.

In-reply-to > Calibre server is now up and running for my new book club. :-) The custom Docker image has already been downloaded 31 times! Need to update the repo I forked off at some point, I guess, if folks are actually using of my work.

Btw, anything in my yarns having to do with stuff I’m running will be reflected on https://nfld.uk somewhere. It may not be straightforward to find, though! Getting a bit hefty, for a home page. ;-)

In-reply-to > The Feds Are Investigating a YouTuber Accused of Crashing a Plane For Views A YouTuber and former Olympic snowboarder has been accused of crashing his plane on purpose for clicks, and the FAA has opened an investigation to get to the bottom of the growing mess.

In-reply-to > @jlj, are you running all of your services on a Raspberry Pi, or just only a Yarn pod? I ask because I see the list of them growing, and growing, and makes me wonder what kind of magical apparatus this Pi is. On that topic, could you twt about that Pi setup? What storage do you have attached to it, and—if any—what mods do you have, etc.? I am very curious!

@fastidious@arrakis.netbros.com Ha, no, I’ve got Wireguard, vaultwarden and yarn.social running on the 3A+, with just an SD card. I have Pleroma running on my 3B+, with a 1 TB external HDD. I run PostgreSQL there, and, now, all my databases have been migrated there (incl., for example, the one Etherpad is using), save for Matrix: my Synapse server and PostgreSQL running alongside each other on that Asus 1000HE (2008). All my other servers are in Docker containers now, on my mother-in-law’s old desktop: a 2005 Dell; the HDD failed on it last year, when I went down for a good week and a half, but other than replacing that, it’s still doin’ its thing. And now everything is backed up to my new Synology DS220+, with personal media further backed up to Backblaze.

Calibre server is now up and running for my new book club. :-) The custom Docker image has already been downloaded 31 times! Need to update the repo I forked off at some point, I guess, if folks are actually using of my work.

It’s my understanding that this is the best of limited options when it comes to hosting ebooks for others; any counterarguments would be most welcome! :-)
