    awesome! love this

      I have started a tilde podcast!

      Ask me anything

      1. 2

        I have a question! How are you so cool ? :P

        1. 3

          Here are some things you can do if you want to be super cool like me:

          • take a multivitamin every day
          • cook for the people you love
          • learn to skate backwards

            damn I only do one out of three, I gotta up my numbers

        I’m legit so excited about this! I cannot WAIT to log-in to any gitea instance using my tildegit credentials ^_^

        This might mean I don’t have to like, uh, install cgit on my server ^_^

        1. 4

          I can relate. I’ve been quite excited lately by codeforge mirroring; codeberg, tildegit, etc. But all that does is bring us back to the web 1.0 days of websites that were thin veneers for large lists of ftp mirrors. Federation would augment that read-only interface with writes, the ability to contribute back.

          1. 2

            100%, it would bring gitea/gogs/etc. on-par with github, and honestly i’d quit using it /at all/ for anything but forks.

          2. 2

            I wonder how integrated it will be.. The idea of opening and closing issues, commenting on pull requests, etc from mastodon is really interesting to me.

            1. 0

              oh shit i didn’t even think about that.

              of course, other activitypub things aren’t all super-integrated with say, mastodon, which is too bad imo. or maybe i’m just kinda dumb about it….

          1. 1

            Is site down?

            1. 2

              Looks like maybe it is!

              The original site is still up if you have a gemini browser:

              And here’s another web proxy:

              nice shout out! and nice idea too

              1. 0

                I like this.

                It makes me very curious about what the minimal wiki setup might be for this. Something with a talk page.

                1. 2

                  I bodged together a Dokuwiki for it in about half an hour from an empty install I’ve had sitting on my server for ages by adding a plugin which adds a talk page to everything. Not that I actually have a game to actually play though!

                1. 2

                  this is a fun way to play around with systems thinking:

                    Isn’t git already dsitrubuted?

                    1. 2

                      git is, especially if you use git send-mail. but 99% of git users don’t know about git send-email or how to use it: they use pull requests on a web front-end like github or gitea.

                      git forges are not, and that’s what we’re talking about here. I’m quasi active on 3 different gitea instances. It would be amazing to be able to log issues and submit pull requests across gitea instances without having to create a new account for each instance.

                    1. 2

                      this is rad

                      i just fired up dosbox the other night and installed Windows 3.1 from archive.org to play an old shareware game

                        excellent stuff, had never considered the parallel compiling opportunities of concatenative languages.

                        and the swim lane diagrams are the best visual description of forth/postfix programming i’ve ever seen. really get to see the need/effects for all the little stack manipulation words in a new, clear way.

                            First, there’s no official client. The fact that it’s so easy to implement a client means there’s a Cambrian explosion going on, and the filtering die-back has not yet occurred. This might change in the medium future.

                            as opposed to what official client for the web?

                            1. 1

                              the web at least has standards…

                                  no. I mean a real technical specification, not a first-draft quality half-baked pseudo-specification that calls itself feature complete.

                                      I guess you haven’t read where the document itself refers to itself as a pseudo-specification…

                                      1. 1

                                        I guess you haven’t noticed it basically hasn’t changed in like a year plus because it’s stable at this point.

                                        1. 1

                                          I have noticed it hasn’t changed, and I’ve noticed that it lacks things that could really make it a better protocol

                                    This book is currently out of stock, but the ebook is still available

                                      Content is still valid as an ebook. :)

                                      Nostarch ebooks are DRMfree when you buy from their store if that’s a concern

                              1. 2

                                I used to always carry a floppy disk around with me with tomsrtbt on it. And when bootable USB became fairly universal, I carried a thumbdrive with dsl on it.

                                    Likewise, I’d not heard of teddit before I don’t think. Quite the lengthy post titles! :-)

                                    1. 0

                                      I really like teddit (it’s lightweight), but I wish I could «connect» my reddit account to actually see subreddits I follow on my frontpage. Any way to import subscriptions from reddit?

                                  1. 0

                                    I never knew about quickfix and location lists. That opens up a lot of possibilities when editing manuscripts! I also learned that named registers exist AND that you can append to them! So cool!

                                    1. 0

                                      omg I am using nearly all 26 of my named registers on my current text conversion project. They all full of macros and snippets. I’d be lost without vim!

                                      1. 0

                                        I’d be curious to read about that dozens! I feel like I am not yet worthy of wielding vim’s full power haha

                                            Wow, what a delivery! :) Thanks for that, I’m going to be having some fun with vim if you need me~

                                    1. 0

                                      I feel like these are all good principles, and ones I try to follow for the most part. I zealously gc --amend and gc --fixup and git rebase -i HEAD~5.

                                      i wish the author had gotten more into how they use git bisect because I hear git wizards praise it, but I’ve never really used it.

                                      I definitely believe in one branch per idea. In creative writing, I’m likely to spin off a branch as a place holder as quickly as I have ideas. Branches often take the place of a ‘drafts’ folder.

                                        I’ve never used –fixup or bisect, tbh.

                                        The creative writing branch thing is a great idea!

                                          Just finished reading the spec. Very interesting. Very well written.

                                          edit: it looks like the only medium for discussion mentioned in the docs is the vaporsoft email address. Is this correct? There is no irc channel or mailing list?

                                          1. 1

                                            Good idea. I’ve created a private mailing list. pigeon_developers AT vaporsoft.xyz

                                            I typically don’t do mailing lists, but am willing to learn and I’d be open to advice.

                                              RSS /feeds aside, I love these /uses and /now ideas, because it makes your homepage more “social”, and I just love the idea of social homepages. Keeps people out of things like facebook, instagram, etc.

                                              1. 2

                                                true!

                                                I added one: https://chrisman.github.io/feeds.html

                                                I have a /now page on my gopherhole I should copy over.

                                                Started writing a /uses a while ago.. I should finish that one up :)

                                                  Yesss. I’m gonna try and do similar stuff! I just have to figure out how to do it without my navigation links looking crowded. I’m already on the brink of not liking how many I have right now hahaha
