this post has by far the best explanation of why 0.1+0.2=0.30000000000000004
Using a tool that turns USGS lidar into a minetest map, I think there is finally an identifyable feature in the data. Topo map: https://opentopomap.org/#marker=16/45.40930/-122.65780 Minetest screenshot: https://donp.org/i/djnk.png
basically, what tweetdeck was doing in 2008. #tootdeck
thinking a bit more about user-defined object types inside an activitystreams activity.
first use case is music, what im listening to now. something as simple as a #listeningnow could work. i'd want the mastodon UI to a) pull those messages into a seperate column (titled with the tag). ah yes tag-columns in general. define a list of tags and toots contianing those tags get pulled out of "Home" and into their column. Good for noisy tags like #listeningnow #readingnow #location-checkin
Zig, a fantastic "Better C" language has a significant new release. https://ziglang.org/download/0.3.0/release-notes.html Also godbolt.org is amazing.
this promo for Actual Reality is a crack-up https://twitter.com/Eternal_Frosty/status/1042280101881102336
an interesting feature of mastodon 2.5 are relays, or what I'd call toot pools. a node's public timelime is only as varied as the number of servers that node's members are following. With 2.5, a node admin can instruct their node to load public toots from a relay. A relay is a mastodon site that accepts public toots from any number of toot depositors.
tags in fediverse posts have a lot of potential if a few could be standardized. tags are a user-space extension of the activitystream object type.
id want both an app to listen to a certain tag, and mastodon smarts to mute the same tag or display only summary info of said tag. for example, what music the actor is listening to.
really warm sound, piano with guitar riffs. 🎵
