“It’s a huge Rube Goldberg machine slapstick custard pie clown car, where each custard pie triggers three more custard pies. A clown’s tie pops up, causing three other clowns’ ties to pop up. Several tons of organic cow manure fall from above. The clowns stick their heads up out of the poop, proclaiming how clean they are and what a mess everyone else is.”

Love the imagery.




I’m assuming these are all on one strip. Is the analog on the right a separate channel, or there to determine loudness or timing? Not sure how the analog translates to actual sound.





Mastodon. Privacytools.io instance when it still existed.



GrapheneOS on a pixel 4 here. Works great. Most apps from fdroid


Man, this drama keeps on going. Just when I thought it was dead. Funny thing is, I’m only on Lemmy because I found mastodon on privacytools site.




Any old gopher users care to share their earliest experiences?
cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/209144 > I've been delving into Gemini protocol and gopher quite a bit lately and came across a good historical dig about gopher by ~szczezuja and wanted to find more. Love to hear what it was used for and the community it had, especially in the 90s. I feel the community is different these days. Source on gopher: > gopher://sdf.org:70/1/users/szczezuja/novice

Another video by tomasino that covers basic setup with client cert authentication. I had to modify a bit for SCGI usage but generally works the same.

Tomasino posted a couple more videos. This one helped me understand basic user inputs.

This article was full of ads and barely told me anything useful.


The only thing about self hosting is recruiting people otherwise you’re posting to an empty room. Sorry I don’t have a suggestion but unless you really want to self host to learn I would find a server that suits you first then maybe peel some folks off to your own server.


In all honesty, this is what I thought of when it hit the news. Look! Inflation!





Circumlunar down?
Anyone else not able to get to circumlunar?

SCGI
It took me a while but I figured out SCGI for molly-brown. This page helped quite a bit: //gemini.bunburya.eu/gemlog/posts/2021-04-07-dynamic-content-scgi-gemini.gmi Now to implement something. Side note, I've been spending quite a bit of time there...it's nice.

Privacy respecting domain registrar / host?
I did a quick Lemmy search and didn't find much. Are there any suggested domain registrars that aren't evil? I'm mostly looking for domain name and not hosting right now but won't exclude them. This would be my first domain so I'm new. I saw njalla, banhof, and 1984 web hosting. Are these good, or any other suggestions? Edit: DDNS would be a plus

Lagrange browser pre-release for Gemini protocol
Highly suggest looking at this if you are interested in using Gemini (protocol) on Android. Very polished, seemingly feature complete. With Ariane gone, might be your best bet - Deedum is good but this has it beat.

Lagrange prerelease for Android on Fdroid
Pre-release for Lagrange on fdroid. Just got it and looks slick.

Deedum client certificate
I saw a guide on making a client certificate but I'm not sure how to get this to deedum. Simply copy paste the text of the generated keys? Can this be done on android?

I've seen a lot of talk about privacy minded chat clients on here but a search did not bring up Tox. I have been delving into the Gemini protocol ( https://gemini.circumlunar.space/) and a few folks there have listed Tox for contact. Anyone have thoughts on this? It's encrypted, peer to peer, FOSS, and requires no signup.

Brown bag
Brown paper bag lunches used to be common but you rarely see them anymore (where I'm from) despite the phrase "brown bagging it today" (or something similar) still being used.

Do you think companies are tracking you in the fediverse and tying it to your larger ad profile?
I'm sure it's happening but if the fediverse gets big you can bet your car that they will deanonymize you in the fedi.

Is there a privacy focused mastodon instance similar to what privacy tools had? I
I miss that little niche community. Also not really interested in the privacy guides matrix server - I like the microblogging format vs chat.


Cribbage
This might be obscure, but I liked playing cribbage on my phone before I started using fdroid. Is there an ad-free version somewhere?



"Rub off on someone" is a phrase that sounds way more exciting than it really is.
Stole from a friend of mine but they said it was okay :)
