One of my "favorite" facts about the Manhattan Project is that the film company Kodak was able to figure out that there were nuclear tests happening because the fallout left telltale effects on their film... 4000 miles away on New York.

The scientists at Kodak just sort of figured it out that these what they thought were purely theoretical weapons were being used while troubleshooting issues with film production. They went to the government like "Hey, are you all testing Nuclear bombs? Because we think /someone/ is testing nuclear bombs"

Which must have freaked the absolute shit out of whoever the first person in the government who knew about the Manhattan Project when they got this message.

@joao @BirdsiteLIVE also do you know if there is going to be an update to the version of mastodon Librem Social uses? There are federation problems with birdsite that are fixed in newer versions

EU: All messenger services should be required to interoperate.

Also EU: We will fund opensource software, like e.g. messenger clients.

Also EU: All messengers are now required to scan messages for unwanted content locally, before encryption, and notify the gooberment of such communicaton.

Do they even realize that they literally have to make FOSS illegal if they want people to not be able to choose clients that don't spy on them (regardless of message transport)? The answer, of course, is no.

@dansup Please do! I'm playing with ActivityPub these days myself, and we need more deep dives into it

When you tinker with an ActivityPub project, what do you use to mock/simulate/check interaction correctness with another instance?

@BirdsiteLIVE The rest is probably going to be a good weekend project.

What do you use to debug an activitypub server? I was thinking of interacting with it through this instance, but there is surely a better way

@BirdsiteLIVE Not clear, but it seem I can apply again.

I started playing with the code a bit . I'm at a point where I can get account data correctly. Only the banner is missing, but that was deprecated already.

I have the endpoints for timelines and tweets, and I'm probably going to spin up a server to make all of that work. There is still a lot of work there to parse everything correctly

@joao @BirdsiteLIVE Thanks! It's an interesting suggestion but it's not quite what I'm looking for. I really want something that imports tweets into the fediverse, so that I can only use and improve that ecosystem

@BirdsiteLIVE I did apply and got rejected...

That got me looking into V2 and if I could port Birdsite to it. There is an endpoint to get a user timeline. Is there other calls that are not there in v2 that blocks a port?

Also TweetinviAPI supports some calls in V2 but not user timeline. I can look into another library or doing something vanilla with HttpClient.

Should be only a few 100s lines of code change overall

I'm trying to delete Twitter from my phone but there is some people I really want to continue to follow.

I'm looking to setup an instance of @BirdsiteLIVE to mirror those accounts here but for that I need access to legacy twitter apps, which I don't. I can port Birdsite to the V2 of the Twitter API, but I wonder if there is something similar already done?

Boost appreciated
