I can’t believe I’m having to write this code in a fucking web server. What a mockery of the web, human rights, and the GDPR.

Fuck you, Google!

Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.

@splatt9990 @sotolf The default non-tile interface is tty ascii. With curses ui, it's still ascii, but you can fit more info on screen and have nicer menus.

Started packaging Amfora and LaGrange browsers for yesterday.

Amfora relies on a few godeps that aren't in the archive yet, and LaGrange has a dep on a library also not packaged.

Going to start with LaGrange since it seems like the lower hanging fruit, and will give Amfora a crack a bit later as I get more familiar with the Debian go package specs.

The simplicity of protocol is brilliant! The bar to do hacky stuff with it is very low. Examples:

Bollux - A gemini client in bash.
sr.ht/~acdw/bollux/

Lace & sed - Microblogging on gemini.

@Sandra @Laerte I've tried Agate a bit. It even got IP logging options recently, but seems to crash randomly when thats enabled. Maybe I'll give Molly a spin soon.

@ecliptik I was mostly fine with my old full sized Ducky shine mech keyboard. After reading up your gemini post, I had to get a 75% keyboard. Did some searching, and I think I'll go with the Keychron K2 V2.

Has anyone written a comparison of different server software? Which is the best one? Why?

I'd like something stable to server my static pages and maybe hook it up with fail2ban, since I'm seeing some network scanning and would like to block those in iptables.

@chriswere Great thoughts! Gemini has quality content that is created by real individuals. I like how you compared web and gemini to books:

The Web: A picture book.
Gemini: A text book.

You can browse my capsule at gemini://gemspace.observer/

Jumping head first into the craze!

My carefully planned escape from the web was success last night. I named my capsule 🛰️ gemini://gemspace.observer/ and launched it into the new frontiers of geminispace 🚀

@jk Good job with Lagrange! I've just recently discovered Gemini and been testing out different browsers. I think Lagrange is my new favourite.

Chromium accounted for 60 *billion* DNS queries per day and a code change resulted in a 41% drop in global root DNS server traffic: theregister.com/2021/02/04/chr

@ChrisWere @uoou
I think distro hopping a natural part of evolution for any newly borne Linux enthusiast. Once you're done with that, you've most likely settled on a perfect personal preference, and can continue to learn more advanced stuff.
