@pocketpopcorn : nice project you've got there but the keyboard looks awful. For such a device, quality and complete keyboard is the first thing mobile-geeks like me are looking for. It's not even usable with a Dvorak layout, sadly.

There's also a growing niche community looking for a pocket e-ink laptop with good keyboard. (I even planned to launch my own as my next startup ;-) )

I realize that @regolith is hitting perfectly the sweet spot for older geeks who spent nights customizing their desktop while younger but are now with different priorities (family, job, sleeping).

You can still have the geek factor, the tiled windows, the ricing, the shortcuts, the config with @regolithOnStage, all of that with a very easy and and flat learning curve.

If you sometimes regret your previous geek life, give Regolith a try ;-)

Je viens de réaliser que les horoscopes ne sont pas que de la stupidité.

Si depuis 10 ans tu lis toutes les semaines un texte qui décrit, selon toi, ton caractère, tu finis forcément par t'y adapter.

L'horoscope devient donc vrai.

@marien : j'ai compris pourquoi Feedreader sous Ubuntu ne fonctionnait pas avec Flus.io. Il fallait activer l'API (merci @vanecx ).

Pourquoi ne pas activer l'API par défaut ? C'est pas très user friendly.

Un client Android pour se connecter à FreshRSS à recommander ? C'est pour mon compte flus.io

@gregoiremarty : yes, je connais @write_as , j'ai le projet de migrer mon blog dessus avec @matt mais le projet a un peu de retard

I think the next-gen RSS feed reader will be ActivityPub based, allowing you to subscribe to Masto account, @peertube channels or @writefreely blogs. RSS and bridges to old proprietary tools will still be available. You will be able to comment something by replying to it with your own account.

The core of the work will be the distraction-less reading interface. For example see my own take on the problem: draft.abunchtell.com/p/read.as

@marien : j'ai toujours pas réussi à configurer Pocket dans flus.io. Un tip?

(oui, je sais, je dois migrer vers wallabag, c'est dans ma todo)

A complete guide on how to read Twitter without being able to post on it anymore.

Because you have probably better things to do than to argue on Twitter.

RT @ploum@twitter.com

How to read your Twitter timeline through your RSS reader (and avoid being sucked into a time wasting universe).

1. Write the twitter accounts you follow, separated by a coma and without the @. @ploum@twitter.com @korben@twitter.com @GeoffreyDorne@twitter.com becomes : ploum,korben,GeoffreyDorne

Don't forget to add the Firefox extension "Nitter redirect". This allows you to see a tweet if clicking on a link but you can't access Twitter anymore.

I will try to use Twitter that way for one week. So don't expect replies.

I may still be on Mastodon in the meantime if you want to chat :  mamot.fr/@ploum

But an email is still the best way to contact me.

Only one thing is missing: see replies and tweets with your name in it. No problem. You can create a RSS feed for that too:

nitter.net/search/rss?f=tweets

(replace "ploum" with your own twitter username)

2. Add a Nitter URL before and a /rss after to make :

nitter.net/ploum,korben,/rss

(it can be as long as you want. You can make several if easier)

3. Add it to your RSS reader (I'm using @FreshRSS@twitter.com on flus.io)

Voilà!

Bonus: Twitter doesn't track you anymore!

Cela fait désormais 2 mois que je ne suis plus monté dans une voiture. Quel bonheur! Cela ne me manque pas.

Mais vu la circulation cet après-midi alors que je pédalais, je dois être le seul.

En fait, il va me manquer ce confinement…

I would like to try using Twitter in read-only mode (no posting, no reaction, no reply). A RSS feed of my timeline (without retweets) would be perfect but can't find a good solution.

Any suggestion?

I liked @KeybaseIO@twitter.com a lot but, once again, the lesson is always the same: don't invest is proprietary tools.

If it's not open source, it could die tomorrow without warning

Just discovered that Geary has been holding some mails in my outbox for several days! Not the first time it happens. Sometimes, a mail appears to be "unsendable" (I must delete it).

Guess I will have to go back to that awful and hideous Thunderbird :-(

Vous aviez raison, mon routeur WRT54G limitait la vitesse de mon réseau à 1,5Mo/s.

Du coup, je le donne à qui serait intéressé par un vieux routeur, parfaitement fonctionnel mais pas adapté au streaming moderne.

Je suis sur Louvain-la-Neuve/Belgique.
