@prologic (#edslwwq) you don’t have read up about it… lol… this is just something i’ve been interested in lately, how to manage personal information/data.

@adi @prologic @eldersnake (#gmlphva) personally i think it’s fine… the tree is fine too. i was thinking more about how other people would use it, and just mentioned having a single binary would be nice, it would be easier to use and adopt too.

@prologic (#edslwwq) same here my working natural memory has been pretty good but i’ve noticed as i get older my recall isn’t as good as it used to be, also i keep forgetting things more and more :P i’m not sure what i’m after… but i’ve been looking at some of these note taking apps lately that use the Zettelkasten system.

https://obsidian.md/

Obsidian is pretty neat but when i import over 10K notes, the app just crawls freezes… i don’t have enough horse power on my computer. i think it’s an electron app too. …

@prologic (#edslwwq) yes, for general for personal learning, experience, general, notes and note taking, wikis and organizing etc. i was just wondering if you using anything to keep a personal knowledge base system… just curious.

i’ve been trying to organize all the stuff i have saved in bookmarks, notes, doc txt files, articles clippings and book quotes etc. right now it’s just all over the place for me. been looking at the Zettelkasten system lately, it seems to be all the rage right now on the internet!

@adi (#dglkgda) https://rw.rs/ looks really cool, can’t get anymore more minimalistic than that lol. i’ve heard about the tildeverse before, how is over there? i think i might join up with rw.rs, just looking at the frontpage of site, i love it!

@prologic (#edslwwq) great slide deck. yes, definitely there’s that simplicity going on… like just installing it is really simple, straightforward. just download it and just go! ah, the slide deck is by Brad Fitzpatrick, and he’s been working on PerKeep… been interested in this, wanting to test this out someday. have you played with this? in general, how do you organize things Info/articles/bookmarks etc… do you have knowledge base system?

@adi @prologic (#ii5fobq) you want to include a (tiny) webserver with mkws? this sounds like a good idea… i noticed a lot of apps include their own webservers now too, like fossil scm.

entr is pretty cool! it’s works really well never had any issues with it. i use it to monitor some changes in some files and it launches a script to process those files. i see entr is at version 4.8 now, i better upgrade mine soon!

@adi (#ii5fobq) my blog? yes, i’ll let you know when i start it again! currently it’s been offline, for awhile now. but, i’m itching to get back into it again, maybe use github for blogging? or maybe sdf? http://bml.sdf.org/ … maybe a tech/programming/gardening blog? :P

@prologic @adi (#ii5fobq) with the javascript turned off, when i hit the reply button, it doesn’t include the @ and hash tag, it’s just blank.

for awhile i had it turned off and just hit the reply and just replied, but it all had no references to anything. i think that’s why some people got confused at my replies? :)

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org (#rzl6zjq) it already looks like spring over where you are at… there’s still a lot of snow on the ground here. what happened to that one log? it looks all chewed up? did lightening strike it? all those other logs, i’d use them to grow mushrooms like shiitake or lion’s mane.

(#pnl2nna) @prologic @xjix love the old laptops, they all had real keyboards! i had a zenith supersport 286 and i did a lot of writing on that beast :)

that’s one thing about the laptops nowadays, they all come with the chiclet style keys and it’s really unpleasant to type on, at least for me.

(#ii5fobq) ah! curious! is there anyway to combine mkws and lmt and pp into one single file? maybe the shell script could “contain” the binaries inside and then run those binaries when needed? just wondering.

 (3 days ago)

(#ii5fobq) i think i finally figured out how to use mkws! it’s inspiring me to start a blog now! been some years since i’ve updated it. i used to just e-mail myself the blog posts which got filtered into a seperate e-mail mbx folder and then a shell script would parse that mbx folder to an html version of each mail.

some of documentation need to be updated a little bit. the Install part:

wget -O - https://mkws.sh/[email protected] | tar -xzvf -

but the lastest version is 4.0.9!

anyway pretty cool!

for some reason i’ve been a real big youtube addict lately. wow, big big addict. so many great channels out there. this is one of my favorites recently, kimi:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCip2Wb2oWTMVvCaVPherr3Q/videos

it’s like a gardening farming cooking vlog… if you’ve seen that movie little forest, it has that sort similar feel to it… the quietness.

what are some of your favorite youtube channels?

oops, i spoke too soon! i see you’re the maker of mkw.sh!

it looks like you use a static site generator to generate your blog(s)? curious which one do you use or recommend? so many of them out there now! jeklly and hugo… don’t which one is good… there’s even one written in bash too.


#g63ajxq

yes that’s a really good thing about delta chat, the app is available for the different platforms… android, ios, macos, linux, windows. and also if i remember correctly, there’s also a cli terminal client too? i think i saw that in the github repo. need to play with that soon too ;)


#p46oyfq

onionshare is pretty cool. but i can’t get it to work recently. i think tor’s killer feature should be its hidden services. it’s great to be able to quickly set up a server and have its services instantly available to the public. or can use keys to have it only available to those who have the keys. this would be great for a small group of people organizing, or a smallish group of people in a book club or maybe an intentional community’s intranet, or anyone that needs some kind of web services.


#pkogy5a

this delta chat app client is pretty neat, been testing it out recently. it’s a chat app similar to signal/whatsapp etc but it uses e-mail services instead.

where this gets interesting for me is that this chat app can be set up to use an internal private e-mail servers too.

Delta Chat is like Telegram or Whatsapp but without the tracking or central control. Delta Chat does not need your phone number. Check out our privacy statement.

oh, if you’re going to run a public e-mail server off of your network, there are 2 things needs you need to prepare for. the first, need reverse dns on the ip address of the e-mail server. and the second thing, port 25 needs to be unblocked. i know that most ISPs block port 25 by default.


#gl5y5ra

i’m just running postfix from the packages available with the ubuntu/debian. simple, nothing fancy. i used to run exim before but i really like postfix now.

i also run another e-mail server that’s just completely internal and private. the e-mails stay inside this private network and the server is only accessible via vpn or ssh tunneling. this has been a great set up/solution for a circle of family & friends. i want to do a write up of this someday.

yes, security. as they say “security is a process”? but aside from spam, i think e-mail is a little bit more secure…


#d2oy6ua

ah you got your rpi! what are some issues running Synapse on the rpi? memory requirements, not enough memory?

running a mail server should be no problem on the rpi, this is actually what i do now. the same rpi also runs an irc server too and works great. i’m remember the earlier days of the internet running a high volume e-mail server on a pentium pro and pentium 133 box with less ram than the rpi… the rpi definitely has more and enough horse power.

i also have a couple of those rpi zero Ws… i might move one of mail server to one of these, maybe.

this is pretty neat (h/t: HN):
