My List of Alternatives to Big Tech Social Media Networks

It is not intended to be a list of everything that exists (there are hundreds and hundreds) but the on'e I'm using fairly actively still.

See gadgeteer.co.za/altsocialmedia

@ajroach42 My super-awkward but fully self-contained gemlog management script, still full of too much hard-coded stuff specific to my own site that I intend to eventually generalize:

To me, this is just one example of the weakness of a browser monoculture: the malware authors can write one tool to extract data from an Electron app, Chrome, Brave, Opera, etc., because they all use the same browser engine so it's not much work to target all of them at once.

@ajroach42 I write my main gemlog by hand since the code is so simple, and I wrote a perl script to manage the tags, categories, lists and next/previous links.

For another blog that's in 11ty I wrote a shell script to send each page to md2gemini, which is a really useful markdown-to-gemtext converter:

A couple of quick fixes for #Lagrange, mostly about text input:

github.com/skyjake/lagrange/re

The input widget was almost fully rewritten in v1.6 due to changes in text rendering and to better support long multi-line content. It's pretty complex code, so of course we also got many regressions.

Upstairs neighbors: Drop something heavy on their living room floor.

Me, on my way to try once again to get the kid to wake up: Can you maybe drop that in that room over there?

The tavern in the cavern has the brew that is true.

I guess I should put new potatoes on the shopping list

food gone bad, gross 

Finally placed the vague nasty smell I'd been catching in the kitchen all day: A leaky bag of potatoes.

Fortunately there were only 3 left in the back, and I caught it before the puddle spread to the box with all the brand new groceries I bought earlier today 😬

So here's my WebP workaround on Windows:

* open the .webp file in MS Paint
* save as .jpeg or .png as appropriate

I shit you not, this works, as MS Paint is able to use the system WebP codec to load the files.

This is cool: The Washington Post has added a feature where subscribers can share paywalled articles with non-subscribers for free.

Up to 10 articles a month, multiple people per article, and it doesn't count toward the recipients' own paltry number of free articles.
