Short status updates that may end up elsewhere, too.

Wanted to update my /uses page with game consoles, but then my browser froze. That said, I don’t actively use any of them, right now. (Not a collector, either. Just happy to (still) have them around.) And I’m not ready to list my fridge, oven, stove, washing machine, lawn mower or car, yet.

Bookmarked https://logicmag.io/security/party-at-my-house-darius-kazemi-on-human-scaled-social-media/.

At some point, though, I started to feel like the balance got out of whack, and I could do more good by putting my work on alternate networks and giving people a reason to get off Twitter.

That’s how I do it. English for “technical stuff,” Dutch for, say, (inherently more local) news and politics. (I kind of prefer Dutch—I’m simply better at it.) I would love to eventually “cross over” more often, and write about, e.g., the IndieWeb in Dutch, even though no one reads that blog anymore—I would get a handful of readers through Twitter, which I have left sometime last year. 🤷

Up next: stuff all of these additional bells and whistles behind a couple user settings, and disable them by default. Then open up the instance for others as well, and make OPML import more robust.

Now syncing channel_source pivot column values across channels, which isn’t perfect but works. I’d prefer a source_user pivot table instead of having everything tied to channels first (and use channels as taxonomies, really). But that would be a major change, and baby steps and all.

Also, while I know the idea is to manage all of this from within a client app, I just spent a Saturday afternoon making it darn easy to copy and move sources from and to different Aperture channels, because that’s were I actually handle these things. (Because my client of choice—which I was thinking of somehow integrating into the service instead—just isn’t there, yet.)

During this first attempt at doing so, i.e., setting up Aperture, found a couple issues with my Docker-based installer, which I’ll address shortly.

But the ultimate goal would be a self-contained package, like a ZIP file, compatible with almost any hosting environment. (You know, like WordPress.)

Like, I currently very much enjoy wallabag, a sort of self-hosted, open-source Pocket, for reading online. And while it supports favorites and tags, it’s nevertheless quickly become a pretty big mess. I need a place to take notes, too. And archive but not forget about.

It’s almost certainly going to be entirely private, but I’m hopeful some of it may eventually cross over to the blog. If anything, a wiki will be a much better place to organize and structure thoughts, random findings—anything—than my blog’s draft posts, which never seem to go anywhere.

@janboddez Wikis work well for things like that. I myself prefer TiddlyWiki (here’s mine). Are you planning to publish t…

Looking to start a personal wiki to save all sorts of little bits of knowledge, for use at a later time. Like information I come across online, on a particular guitar model or arcade cabinet. Or code snippets—why not? Then again, those are all things I could just write about right here.
