Better get that #ActivityPub meetup platform ecosystem going soon...
Someone else's landlord threatening me with breaking into the apartment with police, before I had my first coffee: check.
This dude really doesn't like when plebs don't follow his every order. I merely wanted to make an appointment for the plumber, instead of having him dictate a day and time to me.
Second conversation, about the actual appointment:
> Someone can drop by Wednesday morning
> OK, that could work. What time?
> They can't say a time. Sometime in the morning.
Gee, why am I not surprised?
> Twitter executive for Middle East is British Army 'psyops' soldier
@nolan It's much worse for XMPP still, because I'd wager the vast majority of users want chat notifications for DMs or mentions immediately, while it's mostly OK for me to only see fedi notifications when I open the app.
@nolan I use the default Mastodon PWA on Android every day. Apple not implementing Web Push and background processes is hurting all clients of decentralized/federated networks, including native apps. It's a major roadblock, and one that only Apple can remove.
Super excited to share Launchlet, my first open source project!
The compose interface makes it easy to create your own. I used Svelte for the front-end programming and the almighty @remotestorage to save data in the browser and sync between devices – no database and works offline.
Not sure how people will react, hoping for the best 🙂

I was just on my way to Prague main station with a 1 meter tall omnidirectional wifi antenna attached to my tote bag. A very old woman mistook it for a walking stick and immediately offered me her seat on the tram (already getting up while saying it).
Not even sure how to comment on that. Unbelievable politeness.
The Hong Kong protesters have now officially announced revolution:
I'm not sure if copying phrases from the US declaration of independence was a good idea, because it's confirming the official Chinese narrative more than necessary. Let's hope that things don't turn very ugly very soon.
@m4iler Cool. Let's do it. Always up for coffee or beers with fedi friends.
Success! https://github.com/lightningd/plugins/tree/master/rebalance works quite well for re-balancing channels.
Saturday night is going well. #hcpp19
