I tried to omit using algorithms to find a string diff after finding the XOR method... it kinda works, but it's not accurate enough. :(

Guess I still need to learn that algorithm.

Unfortunately I'm too stupid to understand longest common subsequence and edit distance 😐

Now that the invite system is working, I figured I might share an invite link if anyone wants to help me test out the social network thing I'm making 😎


Updated design for the social network thing.

Hoping to put an emphasis on textual conversation, readability and friendliness.

Threw a couple of sample rules for the anti-spam thing up on my wiki: wiki.0xff.nu/antispam

The filtering proved itself today! \o/

Anyone wants to help me test out and provide feedback/ideas for the social network thing I'm making? :)

Fellow Merveillians, I am currently developing a small, text only, social network thing as a project and a challenge to myself.

Think of it as being of similar format and vibe to guestbooks or shoutboxes of days past.

In your opinion, what is important to have in such a social network to be useful for *you*?

Perhaps this is a fruitless venture, but my new project/challenge is coming along nicely :)

Mastodon admins: has anyone else been seeing a ton of 500 errors coming from pushrelay-mast1.your.org? I'm seeing a ton of dead jobs in Sidekiq related to this, and I'm trying to debug why some users can't upload media on my instance

I don't even know anymore... 😂
I'm re-writing the KMS project: wiki.0xff.nu/picowiki

I was wondering if the Merveilles hivemind might have some input about this: I'm trying to add entry IDs to my microblog in a TWTXT-compatible format so that conversations/replies/followups can be created.

Assuming the ID is: b4180b

Should I just use preceding the text, or something that doesn't get parsed by other clients like id:b4180b ?
Maybe fully parse it to a markdown link, i.e. [](https://website/?id=b4180b) ?

The basics for the twtxt/picoblog client are working: I can download multiple feeds and aggregate them, so now, microblog aside, I can actually follow people :)
