The is an interesting element in the specification — yeah another post about RSS. You could hash the content of a post and commit to the idea that it shouldn’t change.

If a post changes, then the GUID would provide a trail of edits, with the drawback of possibly resurfacing an old post. This article from 15 years ago explores what feed readers did at the time when given a link and/or guid.

Not sure how people find the time and motivation to argue in long comment threads on the Internet. Seems like a waste of energy, or maybe I’m just getting older. Here’s a picture of my guava tree sprouts.

I’m not a podcast person, but this podcast index is rather handy. It appears that they’re gathering the disparate podcast namespaces into a collective namespace — there’s even a podcast feed generator. Might be useful if you’re into podcasting.

Mesh networking software? Linux distributions like NixOS or Guix are not particularly suitable hosts in Internet blackout scenarios, as local operations are easily entangled into a remote build system.

Never got around to trying Yggdrasil, but here’s a rare video of someone using it, and on Guix no less (ultra rare). In this video, Guix remotes are mirrored.

Perhaps the only benefit of being behind a on an increasingly centralizing Internet is conserving time. Playing the “are you human” captcha game is an excellent incentive for minimal browsing and off-lining as much software as possible.

Mulling on a good approach for parsing feeds on this micro blog. Creating a feed is easy, but parsing one is kinda messed. Many feeds out there are not valid, and that’s sorta expected. The website has a nice RSS and Atom feed validator. There’s also the RSS and Atom feed specification.

Naming things is hard. For the times when you don’t know what or how to name things, there’s schema.org. Sometimes it helps.

Firefox’s developer tools excel at finding and fixing accessibility problems quickly. For example, to find all contrast issues on a page fire up the accessibility inspector and scan the tree. My favorite developer tools? You guessed it — Firefox.
