Micro Blog

When I shutdown my Facebook and Instagram accounts, years ago, I switched to more open source friendly social media service networks; Pleroma was my first stop in the Fediverse. Since then I’ve maintained several Fediverse accounts and now BlueSky and Nostr.

My Micro Blog project aggregates all these posts from various accounts backs them up and makes them all available here on my personal site.

Summery of accounts and features supported

LEBRON! Another classic take over in the 4th quarter. As this is probably his last Olympics I’m hoping he goes out with a bang.

Visited a charming fabric store in Berlin. Picked up some canvas (made in Poland) and bed linen fabrics. Planning on making some tote bags and pillow cases. So refreshing to step into a fabric store and everything is not pink hearts jersey fabric.

Owner / worker was super nice and really took the time to understand my needs and share some sewing stories. I’ll definitely be stopping by on my next Berlin trip.

“What about an app the does X? You’re a developer you could make it and we would be rich!”

A common question I get. Family and friends sharing their hopeful business ideas with me.

Rach Smith communicates my response well: “ideas are worth nothing, until they are implemented”. And I feel bad explaining this every time.

AI does not make the situation much better. Personally, I’m excited for AI as a dev tool but not much past that.

The Race for the Galaxy 🌌 was fun last night. Glad I got it. With ~8 expansions, it should be fun for quite some time.

Tried to use tRPC to communicate between two backend service. Nope.

The appRouter type has to be shared between the projects. Either with some hacky type generation and copy paste or another repo shared repo bringing dependency problems. Just nope. tRPC is not ready for prime time in the use case of backend service communication. Going back to GraphQL or simply REST.

Got a chance to play Trails this evening with friends. Nice follow up to Parks. We went way over the 20-30min playtime listed on the box, but had a great time.

HTMX is the next big thing. Just watch a talk at We Developers Conference and I’m convinced.

Had a friend some years ago who worked for Circle CI. At that time, the main programming language there was Clojure. Always found that cool. Just learned they have switched to Go and TypeScript. 🥲

I enjoy seeing new features and exploration in the decentralized social media bridge space. So far I prefer to keep my feeds in my various accounts separate, same for my posts. Then on my personal site I aggregate all my accounts in a custom way.

Woh, so many English language bookshops in Berlin!

Picked up some photography assignments. I can sense another photography month coming. This time black and white.

Also Russian civilian perspective on the war.

@thomasorus thanks for the reminder I need to jump back into Zed. Currently using Helix editor for terminal stuff and VS code for big stuff.

At least I don’t have to worry so much about optimizing SEO for my personal site. hachyderm.io/@thudfactor/11279

Liking the DIY nature of permacomputing and many of the projects like UXN, but the dooms day rhetoric is little weird.

I’m here to check out everyone’s cool projects. Oh wait are we digital preppers?
