If you love the Free Libre web-comic Pepper & Carott, know that @davidrevoy has just added hardcover and soft cover comic books in his shop ! (already 426 books sold ans counting !) davidrevoy.com/static9/shop
It's a great way to support an indie Free Libre artist while gift shopping ;).

I love this lidar scan of an archive room at the Centro de Henri Lenaerts in Navarra, Spain (an arts organization).

But it makes me heartsick for visiting archives in person :(

yesss thanks to this article from @aaronpk I managed to set up a little server that lets me put any service I want behind Mastodon's OAuth so that only people with a friend.camp login can see it. It works for web apps that don't know what OAuth is -- you are just kind of "gating" them so that any request to any URL for the app must be authorized first. A little like .htpasswd but for OAuth.

I'll write this up in detail later but Aaron's post has everything you need.

Your experience of a place on the internet will be vastly improved if you unfollow and/or mute the most negative people who keep crossing your feed, and spend less time talking about all the things you hate.

Yes, any place. It feels nice. Try it.

Today: took kids to the park to enjoy this beautiful weather. Got back, set up a GitHub account for my daughter and showed her the basics of Git using ‘gitk’ as the client. Also got Nasu compiled and running, but an hour of technical stuff got her younger sister jealous and so we must break until tomorrow.

Proud dad over here, though! ☺️
