  • 14:52 UTC (new) (history) Phoebe . . . . 1423 Phoebe is my Gemini-first wiki. That is, it's a wiki. It's primary user interface is Gemini. You can also read the wiki via the web just fine. It reads a config file on startup, allowing you to modify it. The one instance I run has a huge config file which allows me to serve this wiki (and a bunch… [en]
  • 14:48 UTC (new) (history) 2020-11-23 Writing streaming servers in Perl using Mojo::IOLoop . . . . 1423 I'm working on rewriting Phoebe to use the Mojo::IOLoop framework. That framework allows me to create multiple servers listening on multiple ports, for multiple addresses, using different TLS certs… I wrote about a minimal example, yesterday. Today I want to look at another problem: the framework… [en]


  • 15:33 UTC (new) (history) 2020-11-22 Writing Servers in Perl using Mojo::IOLoop . . . . 1423 I'm thinking of rewriting Phoebe using Mojo::IOLoop instead of Net::Server. One problem I needed to solve was listening on different ports (e.g. 443 and 1965), for different hostnames (,,,,,,… [en]


  • 23:29 UTC (new) (history) Comments on 2020-11-20 Moku pona is on CPAN . . . . Alex I added lupa pona to CPAN as well (App::lupapona), which should help you self-host a directory of files, such as the moku pona directory.
  • 20:14 UTC (diff) (history) Comments on 2018-11-14 Firefox Setup . . . . 6530 links to the following: "Mozilla works with advertising partners to place sponsored tiles on the Firefox home page (or New Tab) that would be useful to Firefox users. Mozilla is paid when users click on sponsored tiles." – Sponsored Top Sites… [en]


  • 23:27 UTC (new) (history) 2020-11-20 Moku pona is on CPAN . . . . 1423 Now that I'm slowly learning how to package code for CPAN – all of that after realizing that I could in fact upload tools and scripts without regular Perl modules for others to use – I've packaged and uploaded moku pona as well. Thus, if you're a Perl user, here's how you'd install it: cpan… [en]
  • 20:50 UTC (new) (history) 2020-11-20 Small computer . . . . 1461 I’m interested in small computers. It’s hard to put it into words. In terms of aesthetics, I have this to offer: I like to log onto my laptop, use Emacs full-screen, with 20t font size. I know it’s not for everybody, but I like it. One day… Emacs standing alone on a Linux Kernel. 😂 I must confess… [en]
  • 20:08 UTC (diff) (history) Comments on 2020-02-23 Into the climate catastrophe . . . . Alex Schroeder Bubbling methane craters and super seeps - is this the worrying new face of the undersea Arctic? by Valeria Sukhova, Olga Gertcyk, The Siberian Times. « Fields of methane discharge continue to grow all along the East Siberian Arctic Ocean Shelf, with concentration of atmospheric methane above the… [en]
  • 14:36 UTC (new) (history) 2020-11-20 Geolocation using Exif data and Open Street Map . . . . 1461 As I've shared this Perl script twice, now, I figured perhaps it should be on the blog as well. It allows me to tell where a picture was taken, if and only if the picture contains geolocation metadata, which most cell phone images should. I also used to have a regular camera with a built-in GPS,… [en, de]


  • 15:25 UTC (new) (history) 2020-11-19 Trying to wrap my head around async Perl . . . . 1461 On the Perl channel, they like to recommend IO::Async and Mojo::IOLoop but and in all the years I've tried using them, I never got anywhere. Somehow my brain just can't digest the documentation. I find it so difficult to parse, in fact, that I can't even tell you whether the documentation is… [en]
