It's even worse than it appears..
Today we got Doc's blogroll working on his WordPress blog. This is the first of our blogrolls on WordPress anywhere. It's been tricky to get the CSS worked out, but we're getting there. It's worth the effort. #
Threads: Maybe The Atlantic or New Yorker could write a detailed article about what the great purges in China and Russia were like. How many millions died. Hitler isn’t the only recent model for an authoritarian government. We should be studying this, you can be sure Trump’s government has and is.#
  • What does ActivityPub does that RSS doesn't?#
  • Off the top of my head, it's not the ability to syndicate, RSS already does that. I can follow anyone on any server. #
  • I think it's the timeline? And the ability to delete posts. Keeping all that in sync is a lot of work, and presumably a lot of traffic? #
  • Also replies. If I reply to a post when viewing it on another server, the reply should show up under any other view of that post.#
  • What else??#
  • PS: Only thinking about features that are used by Mastodon to federate, not potential future features. If that were the rule, then RSS could do anything AP could do, right -- because you can always add the feature. So, just the features that are in use.#
  • PPS: I posted this on Mastodon and may post it elsewhere, if I do I'll link them in here. #
  • Back in the Valley some of my friends called me El Grandé.#
  • Some still do.#
  • Dave Jacobs has been playing with ChatGPT art, and sent me this one, and I thought it belonged here. #
  • Dave Jacobs calls me El Grandé.#
  • PS: You say the El part softly then pause on the G and add a slightly gutteral H before proceeding with rand and then stretch out the "ay" with a smile and you got it. #
  • PPS: You could roll the R too, for fun, if you're into it.#
  • PPPS: Guy Kawasaki calls me Beeeeeeg Stuffff. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
