In-reply-to » @prologic Thanks. Really nice of you. I also try to get as many people on it to sign it. But most of my family and friends do not understand what this means for them in the future. They are long time friends and family, but most of them are still on the "I have nothing to hide" train.

quoting a random guy “You don’t “have something to hide” when you put blinds on your windows or close the door when you’re on the toilet, or wear clothes. Privacy isn’t about having something to hide, it’s not about keeping secrets. It’s about being able to choose what you reveal about yourself, and when, and to who, and the other word we have for that is “dignity”. Your inherent dignity, as a human being. Privacy is the agency you have over your dignity.”

In-reply-to » Does anyone know of some kind of plaintext file format to store metadata on a collection of other files? My documents folder has outgrown the directory hierarchy and I would like to eliminate the hierarchy entirely, storing metadata on everything in one human and machine readable file.

@mckinley Maybe tagging the files directly?

@prologic@twtxt.net how do newlines in twts work? I see they don’t show up in the raw twtxt.txt (in my browser at least). The twtxt spec seems (?) to forbid actual newlines, so I’m guessing you are using some sort of workaround specific to Yarn?

I was thinking about how to best create a news twtwt.txt for twtr, and I’ve developed a way to format git commit logs as a twtxt file: git log --format="%aI%x09%ae: %s"

I have been using Logseq since end of last year, to keep tab on things I do, or things I need to do, and have slowly starting to port some of my Markdown documentation to it. I am still using Typora for my technical documentation, but Logseq, together with Obsidian have been more and more within my near usage horizon.

Other than org-mode for emacs, and vim, what do you all use for note taking/mind-flow? I am always looking for new, powerful, good UI/UX looking, resilient—that is, that use plain text to save your information—tools.

In-reply-to » @thecanine Talk to @ullarah @darch and @fastidious 😅 I'm no good with UI/UX and I think these guys own the UX space right now 🤣

@thecanine I disagree.

There are too many tiny fonts, the placement of the hash too close to other elements, and in a place that doesn’t make much sense. The “hamburger” items are too close to the logo. The next link is not properly aligned. The double line on the context reply adds too much noise. The options for twts (only Yarn in this screenshot), are the same colour of the default text (no distinction).

Those observations are derived from the screenshot alone, and nothing else.

In-reply-to » Now that we have that sorted out, I wanna hear your back stories. 😁

Darch comes from my last Mørch which means dark in Danish but it spell mørk when it is not a name. And since you can’t use æøå I emails I just came up with sp_darch when I created my very first Hotmail back the late 90s. Pronounced: dark

In-reply-to » Granted I wish Nextcloud itself wasn't a PHP driven behemoth, but that's another story 😆 But it has made a lot of that transition off typical cloud services easy.

notes.mills.io and files.mills.io are my early attempts at solving both Document and File sharing. Needs much more work though. Calendaring/Eventing however I feel needs to be solved another way, CalDav/CardDav is just an insane over-engineered and over-compliated spec 😢
