One of the down sides of living in Nicaragua is we don't have Chipotle. Yes, I love Chipotle. #noshame

Croatia showed their experience in big game moments with the penalties but no other team showed as much fight as Japan has all tournament. What a great match!

@KenRos Oh fun times! I mean I want #KleinOut but not like this lol.

Everything involving Pavon was just a cluster it seems. I loved having him as a player but first all the drama to bring him, then to keep him, then his abuse allegations in Argentina, and now this.

Surprised that Dennis was involved though. He always seemed to be to be a true professional. Though he was Chivas previously so there's always that...

@jxs Sure, here's what I got at the moment:

sqlite> select xid from honkers where combos like '%honkers%';

I saw a few others but some had trouble adding and others seemed like it was just toying around and not going to keep it so I didn't save it.

BTW, loving your lazy loading patch. Not sure why I didn't add that sooner. Made having avatars so much more enjoyable.

@drewdevault This is a bummer and I hope you'll be back to writing sooner rather than later.

I see where you're coming from though. Many times I simply post a link to one of your blog posts, or a sourcehut post, or anything you're involved with and there's always a few replies leading me into a debate on whether or not you're an a**hole or zealot.

I think the fact that you strike such a chord with people (good or bad) is exactly why you should continue writing. Of course, I don't have to deal with all the bs that comes with it so, easier for me to say than for you to do.

I was today years old when I learned, that you get the curl command with a right-click copy in the dev mode of your browser.💥

I always copied various things individually but never knew you can get the direct full curl command that your browser does.

Right click on dev chrome/brave console allows you to copy as curl.

@icy I've wanted to throw together a simple app that serves module details when ?go-get=1 isn't present (ie, repo url, mailing list, ticket tracker, etc).

For now, I just do nginx trickery like so:

        location /carrier {
            if ($args = "go-get=1") {
                add_header Content-Type text/html;
                return 200 '<meta name="go-import" content="petersanchez.com/carrier hg https://hg.code.netlandish.com/~petersanchez/carrier" />';
            return 404;

@w8emv @ols @tedu @benjojo Hah sure, here you go:

donk = image (attachment)
bonk = boost
xonk =
zonk = mute / delete
badonk =
qonk = vote in poll
# The flavor sets followers from following. See below
dub = follower (external user following honk user)
sub = honk user following external user
presub = processing honk user following external
peep = currently not following. Can resubscribe via click in honkers page

There's def some stuff missing. Just as I need to dig into something I'll add it to the notes so I don't forget what it is.

H/t @the_meghaning from the other site.

“Elon Musk called Trent Reznor a "crybaby" for deleting his Twitter account. Wil Wheaton then wrote this incisive summary of the man-child that is Elon Musk.”

I wasn’t much aware of Musk before the bird site acquisition. Cars & Space, but not any sense of who he is. That’s changed

Increasingly he sounds & looks very very damaged.

This post sums it up.

Since being on mastodon, as I slowly move out of the bird app, I have found that I’m missing the #indigenous and #Navajo community that made it difficult for me to decide to leave Twitter.

Absolutely mastodon has a more positive and welcoming environment here, which I’m loving. But Im in search of #indigenous and other #bipoc accounts.

“Every Iranian player risked something when they chose not to sing. The English FA, when they decided that Harry Kane would not wear the OneLove armband under pressure from FIFA, were not prepared to risk a booking for their principles. Compared to what the Iranian players have just done, it will rightfully be seen as a shameful and cowardly act.”

The collapse of Twitter for (basically) self-inflicted reasons makes a strong case for building online infrastructure structured as a non-profit or public utility.

People rely on these platforms for public information, use them for democratic debate and many invest their livelihoods in them.

These platforms are too important to public safety, peoples’ livelihoods and democracy to leave in the hands of eccentric billionaires or the whims of stock markets.

@ols @icy Looking at the cache code, doesn't look like it's possible to iterate it. Bummer.

Could always also just load them at startup and store it in a global slice. Not exactly elegant but neither is reading the directory every time we need to show honkform. This also creates the issue with needing to restart honk just to add new emus

I see a lot of pundit speculation and debate that goes something like, “well, only the hackers and cybersecurity people are moving to Mastodon - and everyone else is just going to stay on #Twitter “, but the thing the folks saying this do not understand is that we are a canary.

We watched Twitter get rid of qualified #cybersecurity people who we personally knew. We understand the implications of privacy teams and lawyers being fired has on our data. We hollered about the way the new blue check system would be abused days before billions were lost by a couple companies. We understood the implications of rapid and haphazard terminations. The bottom line is:

1) We know our login data, DMs, and private posts really aren’t secure at all anymore due to lost competent staff and disgruntled employees,


2) Twitter probably won’t just shut down this month or next month, but it’s going to start having some serious and unpredictable financial and technical problems due to the people who were let go as well as Elon’s apparent instability and lack of checks.

So, we migrated. Other communities don’t necessarily have this inside baseball, and they understandably just feel like Twitter is too big to fail. We will see if stuff that happens over the coming weeks pushes more folks here, or to other social media sites. Depends a lot on our outreach and what we do with this community.

Column layout for #Honk is coming on nicely. Main feed and mentions are working. Need to:

  • pull in the user's combos for the drop down to be populated
  • create a separate honk.html so that I can clean the cards up a little
  • plug in the honk form
  • target links within a column properly (currently you are taken out to the full page version so not too bad a journey)

Happy Saturday fedi-gang!

I'm gonna spend the day/night in Leon, Nicaragua. Very old colonial city. I'll share some pics when I'm back.

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Please boost, Mastodon admin question.

I've decided to setup a Mastodon instance for my companies, products and team to use.

Since masto.host seems to not be taking new customers I'll run it myself.

Question - Is it possible to setup Mastodon on FreeBSD? Is there anyone out there currently doing that?

Sort of odd that the manual setup instructions specifically require Ubuntu or Debian.

FYI, I'm not moving away from my gorgeous honk setup though :)

@dave @ols I'd love to throw together an interface like the advanced mastodon one but not as detailed. Just atme's and maybe select a few combos.

Also inline replies so a page refresh isn't required every time (or what I do, open a convoy in a new tab, reply, close tab)

I'm not a front end dev at all so it's one of those things I just let linger but the work isn't terribly difficult and my JS foo is enough to do it I guess. Just not something I really enjoy doing so meh.
