@FiXato Yes, the only reason I'm not including a default API key yet, is because I didn't expect to have people actually using the app. Now that I've seen some interest, I'll add a hardcoded key very soon on release 1.1.0. Thanks! :)

@kelbot @FiXato In the end I realised that in order for my script to work I had to the --mtime flag in gemfeed as well.

@FiXato Sorry for the very late reply, I should check The Fediverse more more often. You're right and initially I was using a glob, but I stumbled upon some issue I no longer remember and eventually moved to ls. Thank you for your nice words!

@KelsonV I liked your content enough to subscribe. Also, the structure of your capsule/gemlog resembles my own. :)

It's still very experimental, but I'm messing around with #gemini at my new capsule, gemini://hyperborea.org

So far I've copied a few pages from my website and started a #gemlog. Mostly I'm trying to get a good sense of what works best in the ultra-minimalist environment. I'll probably still be moving things around for a while.

The first beta build of #Lagrange for iOS is now on TestFlight.


Join now and not only will you get a preview of v1.3, but you'll also get to enjoy a variety of exciting bugs. Will it crash and burn?


@jk This release ROCKS! Great job as usual. The enhancement I requested for the sorting order of the feeds now works EXACTLY how I wished it did. Many other great new features, especially the custom window frame on Windows 10!

Any particular reason for my home feed to show only my posts and no one else's?

I've been away since mid 2018, but that shouldn't be a reason?

And yes, I'm still following people.

Here I am playing , one of the best and most demanding flight sims, on , using the Steam client and maximum quality settings.

It might not yet be the year of the Linux desktop but 2018 definitely seems like the year of .


Gopher is still alive!

To all the and fans out there, what would you think of going one step further than what is doing and create an easy to use phlog system using ?

Gopher is the predecessor to HTTP and it enforced a minimalist menu-document interface, without all the embedded multimedia of the current web, but crucially focused on the content, without distractions, cookies, banners...

@bowner1012 Indeed.

I personally go with what feels best. For instance, I use qutebrowser because I love navigating with keys, instead of using a mouse. I didn't even know it was so fast, before doing these tests.

@Huggles @kelbot @hund Yes, to be honest I didn't either.

Especially after the first Quantum release, Fireofx feels definitely faster than it was before on Windows 10.

On Linux though, I didn't notice it so much. Most probably this is related to hardware acceleration.

That being said, I didn't expect the numbers to be so low for Firefox on some benchmarks. It doesn't feel that bad visually.

I did a few to figure out which is the top performing web browser in .

After requesting the input from , these were the 5 browsers I decided were representative enough to include in the test:


Thank you all for the suggestions, next time I should also include smaller ones. Thank you @kelbot for letting me know about Falkon. I'm sure @hund will enjoy the final winner:


@ChrisWere I switched back to Manjaro running KDE Plasma 5.12 as my daily driver a few month ago. I won't go anywhere else soon.

It's not only about the sheer number of features, Plasma 5.12 is also rock solid. I've had exactly 0 issues with it, compared to the almost daily quick crash/recover in GNOME.

@RyuKurisu They are, but probably not on a weekly basis, including the latest point releases. I'll initially show it in video format on Youtube as well.

I'm soon going to benchmark web browsers on Linux on a regular basis, seeing how they evolve over time.

I need to come up with a list of browsers to test, which are representative enough. Maybe the top 4 or top 5.

Firefox, Chrome and Opera are obvious choices, but what would you add as well?
