Waiting for word from the shop on their first look at a new (old) vehicle I impulsively bought. I’m so nervous. I love the vehicle though.

First ten days of #Lagrange TestFlight

gmi.skyjake.fi/gemlog/2021-03_ (gemlog post)

Development has been pretty active but I'm still undecided about the phone UI. Writing a universal app remains a challenge. This has been a nice way to test 1.3 features for the desktop, though.


#Lagrange v1.1 has been released:


What's new?
- Import existing X.509 client certificates via the UI.
- Setting for maximum cache size.
- Option to show full URL when hovering over a link.
- Support for Finger links.
- More keybindings: e.g., opening and closing tabs.
- Visual UI improvements.
- Fix for history timestamps that were shifting on every launch.

Some thoughts on the protocol:
Gemini is to the web what reading a book is to watching TV. The former is focussed, simple, requires some effort, and may be more rewarding. The latter may be more compelling but also full of distractions and advertisements.
Gemini is just text and links, which HTML can easily do, but by removing features (like CSS, JavaScript, and inline media), Gemini guarantees that your experience will be simple, fast, and user-respecting. No… tobykurien.com/post-1611168829

@jk Is there a way to export the fingerprint (so that I can paste it into my server config) for certificates generated in Lagrange? Click as I might, no dice.

There is so much to love about . Required use of TLS (but TOFU instead of CAs), client certs for short-term sessions and long-term identifies, simple, privacy focused, non-extensible protocol (so you can't add all that anti-privacy stuff that was added to HTTP), super simplistic default markup language similar to Markdown.

Just discovered yesterday. I’m excited, but now I’m going to have to spend some time migrating my blog to Geminispace. 😀

Trying to play Among Us with the kids. I’m too old for this. I just start doing my tasks and I’m either dead, or being voted off the spaceship for looking like an impostor as I wander aimlessly around. I just want to do my tasks in peace.

Wrote this cheesy solution for an internal Advent of Code using Turbo Pascal 7. God I miss the days of DOS, spaghetti code, ANSI colors, and sick text-based development environments.

Been playing with NextDNS (nextdns.io/) for the past few weeks. It's fantastic. Similar capabilities to my old PiHole, but without the effort to manage and easier to use when outside of the home network. Easy to setup with Ubiquiti USG. 💜

New pet peeve. Organizations like phone providers, banks, CRA, etc. who go to the effort of setting up a PIN to identify you when you call in... and then completely disregard that and ask skill testing questions instead. What was the point of my PIN?!!

I can’t even begin to say how refreshing these were after a long day of hiking in Kananaskis. 💚 @CabinBrewing@twitter.com

I haven’t used a Desktop PC for years. OMG. I’d forgotten how joyful it is to use a machine that isn’t constantly throttled by thermal issues. And this is an old i7 that came from a pile of recycling at work.

I want to use RaspberryPi computers for so many things, but I have near 100% failure with them. They won’t sync video with TVs, they fail to boot, the crash randomly, SD failures, etc. I don’t understand how others use these things. NextCloudPi, PiHole, etc.
