Right, done with replying to toots about #MSX, I think 😅
I think I did alright in this season of #MarioKartTour? :)
Finally cleared the last few challenges tonight; I was lucky to get a #SuperHorn Frenzy, which helped clear the "Land 5 hits with a Super Horn" Challenge. :)
Production photo of a factory worker checking whether Super Mario Bros. 3 cartridges will start in a Famicom. In 1988, every manufactured copy of a Nintendo game was still tested manually for errors. The worker is using both hands to operate two Famicoms for maximum efficiency. https://t.co/voPGzHcxZF
The dwelling stood abandoned.
A set of footprints could be seen leading towards the half broken door.
A wide eyed face peered out from the between the splintered wood, a thin hand clutched at the frame.
If you paid attention before wandering over to see if they needed help you might've noticed the figure's lack of feet.
Two sets of footprints could be seen leading towards the half broken door, a pair of wide eyes staring out helplessly...

re: activitysearch preview
right now i’m wrapping up the testing phase, specifically doing integrity testing to ensure the library handles its data as intended (ex: doesn’t mysteriously delete or duplicate things) but otherwise everything works and you can use it for what it says on the tin. after testing, i’ll write the docs and publish the source.
i’m planning a CLI, browser app, and self-hosted server for this model of handling your own data. after that, well, i’m thinking about writing apps that treat AP as just one of many media channels, including things like secure-scuttlebutt and dat’s budding social media apps. but who knows what the future holds 🤷♀️
so i mentioned working on a library for working with activitypub servers a few days ago and writing it has been going well so i figured i’d share what it is and where it’s at.
the library is called (tentatively) “activitysearch” and it operates around the model of a single actor. an actor has an associated database (pouchdb) where it stores any data it downloads about the actor — but it need’s that actor’s permission to get the necessary creds. it is not a tool for checking out other people on the fediverse. it is a tool for working with your own data.
the data it downloads is then indexed so you can make queries against it without hitting the network, queries like, “who am i following whose instance has disappeared?” or “where’s that toot i fav’d about crows?” i have a rudimentary text-search algorithm i use to build a search index but it’s not really professional-grade like lucene, just something useful enough for general purposes.
Does anyone have experience with LDAP servers? Every time I type an address into my laptop's Thunderbird install it takes FOREVER to fill in the addresses, but this doesn't happen on my desktop, despite both being set up for LDAP.
If anyone has advice on what I"ve messed up on my laptop, I'm all ears.
@FiXato I'm still exploring it myself but so far I've enjoyed:

subtoot rant about Facebook
Your event might be awesome AF, but if you only share the information about it on #Facebook, then I'm not going to be boosting / resharing it.
If you can be bothered to post about it here on the #Fediverse, then why not also take the logical next step to actually share the event details here, or on some other open platform, as well?
Wow. Bucking the trend of countless unfulfilled promises to open source the server component of open source projects (looking at you wire), Mycroft have just released theirs!
