@jjatria I just tried adding an OpenAPI document just for a single call and writing the JSON was tiresome and error prone. I am no longer convinced that this is going to actually make things easier. Did you give it a try?

@munin @HedgeMage I just bought some ink for my Lamy fountain pen and got to see some really expensive fountain pens. Uuuugh!

Building your programming ability? Open "secret" about tech industry: programmers only productive about 3-4 hours/day & fake the rest. No need to sit 8 hours.

So don't burn yourself out! Maybe lie down & visualize, before coding tiny pieces. Understand a single thing in many ways; creates strong bricks as foundation of your knowledge. With stronger bricks, the faster you will be.

Maybe first write down a few different ways of doing something; list advantages & disadvantages of each. "Analyze tradeoffs."

Code's often a poor representation of thought, a thin brittle artifact that executes.

@NicolasPetton What I would like to see is posts of the form "this is something I'm doing and this is the Emacs config that helps me do it". A problem I have for example is what Emacs/JS Setup to use when editing a SVG file with inline Javascript like campaignwiki.org/gridmapper.sv

@Kdvr @johnson Regarding #mail and #Emacs, a while ago I wrote a tutorial on how to setup #Gmail, #Gnus, and #GPG (Gnus being one of the potential Emacs mail clients). github.com/kensanata/ggg

A guy recently hand-wrote the Bible and it took him 13 years. Imagine how expensive books would be if they took 13 years to make (and if there were no other way to get that information).

I have also considered implementing Hubzilla style DMs in postActiv, but one factor to consider is that in that model the admin is not an adversary, so that could make servers into a juicier target for implantation (especially the ones with thousands of users) and put more responsibility/risk onto the admin. So I still think it's better to use separate more specialized apps for private communications. It also guards against the Lavabit scenario where someone shows up and demands server keys.

@gideonro @dredmorbius I just use different emoji to keep my accounts apart and I have no "main" account. The Octodon account is the "general" account, though, so I guess it has the lowest signal to ratio and is therefore the main account. ๐Ÿ˜

@Martin03 @neoanderthal Chrome laughs at your four winds. Laughs from his mountain.

@oliof @neoanderthal Reset my password to the same password I had before and now it works again.

@oliof @neoanderthal Hm, incognito window also didn't work. I'm going to ask for a new password.

@neoanderthal Weird, I cannot log into Weapons vs AC right now. Chrome keeps showing me the login page and telling me wrong email or password.

Click on the "sliders" button on the top right of the home timeline.
Put "#rp\b" in the regular expression filter, in the "Advaced" section.
Tu filter multiple topics, you can use this syntax :
(weather|dogs|#rp\b|green)
The "\b" means "end of the word", in order to filter out "#rp", while sparing "#rpg".
