I'm changing the domain name of this #honk instance. I'd like to do that with as little trouble as I can.
One approach: start completely over, refollow people manually (there are not a lot of people in this little corner of the #honkiverse ). down side: the old domain will return an NXDOMAIN I think so any old followers will be baffled. That strikes me as not good.
Second approach: export everything from a backup, import everything from that backup. It might work, I don't know.
Third approach: update the database tables directly to support the new name. Perhaps unwise.
any other suggestions welcomed. My working plan is to switch to the fork that @zev is running.
Every word of this @dave0 piece about Michigan is absolute truth.
@w8emv another #honk user here. But on pure upstream code.
The Allen Telescope Array detected many radio bursts from an FRB using the newly commissioned beamformer.
This software-defined beamformer (BLADE) is written in C++20 & CUDA and works in real-time on GPU.
I wouldn't have imagined 3 yrs ago that I would be in an ATEL. Very cool! https://www.astronomerstelegram.org/?read=15735
@w8emv @ols @tedu @benjojo Hah sure, here you go:
donk = image (attachment)
bonk = boost
zonk = mute / delete
qonk = vote in poll
# The flavor sets followers from following. See below
dub = follower (external user following honk user)
sub = honk user following external user
presub = processing honk user following external
peep = currently not following. Can resubscribe via click in honkers page
There's def some stuff missing. Just as I need to dig into something I'll add it to the notes so I don't forget what it is.
@moffintosh Finally got around to it, https://github.com/benjojo/honk-benjojo
oh, I for one would read that notes file with honk terminology...
@tedu Unrelated to the problem discussed. But I highly enjoy that I know and understand the terminology here (oonker, bonks,GetJunkHardMode), I feel invited to the worlds weirdest club
when choosing a new BBS, I ask first "who's the sysop?" If you have a good sysop, the rest follows.
For your listening pleasure: Barcelona, "Paging System Operator", from their 2000 release "ZeRo-oNe-INFINITY"
This was a good line.
badword := unsee(zilences, h.Precis, h.Noise, h.Donks)
hfcs man page is at https://humungus.tedunangst.com/r/honk/m/hfcs.1 for inspection. Things I learned:
The regex based options remind me of Usenet kill files.
The "rewrite" option has a lot of potential.
I like that there's filtering to "skip media", especially useful perhaps on a tiny system where storage in general is not plentiful.
"A post marked sensitive that does not otherwise contain a summary will have an invisible summary of “unspecified horror” that can be matched against and will appear if the post is collapsed."
Thanks, this is a good list. I feel a long blog post coming on, if only to force myself to make some sense of it all.
I appreciate that you have your fork in a spot where I can look at the tweaks one by one to try to make sense of them.
Some time soon I need to shut this instance down + migrate to a new hostname, maybe Thanksgiving weekend. That would be a good time to swap over to a new codebase while I'm at it.
@w8emv @jxs Definitely, yes -- in addition to @jxs's, I've also been tracking @petersanchez's here and @icy's here. I think @ols and @benjojo also have some interestingly-tweaked versions, but I don't know if the sources are public anywhere at the moment.
(For the record my own is here, now including some of @icy's code for avatar-fetching.)
first snow in Ann Arbor

Took out the Yooper Scooper, to take care of the one inch of snow on the sidewalk. It took approximately no time to clear.
There is still a pile of leaves under the snow, not a big pile, but a pile nonetheless.
Packard looks clear all the way to the bike lane, local streets are snow covered. I might get out for a short ride today just to say I did, but I'm definitely not set up yet for winter bicycle as reliable transportation. (Yet.) Maybe bus into town?
I have a weird feeling that every #honk site in the #honkiverse is running an ever so slightly different fork (which sounds like big fun for keeping track)
@w8emv (And see the "Be part of our world" section at the bottom for how get your node included.)
@w8emv Actually that's more a functional thing I was about to follow up with (but forgot until your post reminded me) -- if any other #honk instances want to be counted in metrics like that, @jxs has a a patch for it here, plus a small fix-up here.
