Played The Long Dark last year over the holidays, but never started Story Mode, because I wanted to get familar with Survival Mode first (not required at all, by the way).
They've just released a major update, and I'm very excited to dive back in.
Got it. This is how federation works.
You need the local ID for the status you’re replying to. https://mastodon.social/@jkreeftmeijer/101236371751163533 is posted on https://mastodon.social, but you need the ID from https://mastodon.technology/web/statuses/101236371815734043 when posting a reply on https://mastodon.technology, for example.
I can't seem to find how to post a response to a status on another instance via the Mastodon API.
Passing the ID as the `in_reply_to_id` parameter produces a 404 because the status can't be found. That makes some sense, as that status isn't on the instance I'm calling out to (right?). Switching the API base URL to the other instance gives me a 401, because I don't have an API app set up there.
What am I missing here? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
I *love* reinventing the wheel.
Some of my articles explain how to build your own GenServer in Elixir or how to compare images in plain Ruby, and I’ve built minimal clones of libraries like RSpec and Spring in the past to understand and teach how they work.
While you shouldn’t rely on a hand-rolled HTTP server or a naïve reimplementation of an ancient OTP construct in production, taking software apart and rebuilding it is the best way I know to understand what’s happening under the hood.
Randomly running into `module :certifi is not available`-errors in your Elixir project? It’s probably ALE’s mix linter recompiling your whole project, which is disabled by default in the current version.
The publication dates for articles on my website had broken `<time>` tags, so apparently search engines started using the update date as the publication date. Fixing the tags coincided with traffic from search engines dropping by half. 🤷♀️ #reverseblackhatseotips
Published in 2016, but still one of my personal favorites. It explains a bit of TCP and HTTP, some Rack, and it finishes with 30 lines of code that can serve `Rack::Lobster`. ❤️🦞
