don't you choose a city now??
#
aaronpk
looks like in the app you can choose venues or neighborhoods or cities
#
aaronpk
the coordinates all show up as just a "bounding box" for the place, tho sometimes the bounding box is tiny

that was a lot less painless than I thought it was.

I'm learning about IndieAuth, an effort to consolidate Web identities. The idea is that you log in websites with your personal domain

Does anyone know what happened to IndieAuth? It doesn't appear the project is active. I'd like to hear more about the project's history

@taravancil Was it that https://indieauth.com is made with like bootstrap 1? I'd love to know what I could do to make it look more active!

@taravancil
@aaronpk It wasn't the design, but the history page stops at 2012 so I think I assumed that was the end of the IndieAuth story

[miklb], I should probably have defined “fiddly parts” as public-facing parts. I have no issue installing a database or whatever on a box and have it open to socket connections. I trust my self with that. It is public-facing stuff I don’t feel comfortable about doing.

^^^ this causes weird feelings in me
#
petermolnar
offline urls in why section
#
petermolnar
I'm guessing it's inevitable, though; I can't remember if indieweb has already encountered the question of what happens with the data of the deceased, that one that caused FB trouble as well
#
petermolnar
in my case both my server and my domain would expire when my prepaid credit card runs out of funds
#
petermolnar
sebsel that conversation happened when I was on holiday, probably that's why I skipped it, thanks for findig it
#
petermolnar
I'm guessing static website come handy for a dead man's switch
#
jjuran
Welcome to the brittle Web
#
sebsel
We don't really have a page on this specific topic, but since I don't know how to call it, it might exist under that name
#
petermolnar
the most problematic part of indieweb for longetivity is who's going to pay for your domain if you're not?
#
Zegnat
That is where I have a semi-out. Several family members use the domain as it is our family name. If anyone is still using it for their email after I die, chances are they will take over the domain payments.
#
cweiske
you specify in your testament that the heirs have to continue running the server + domain :)
#
petermolnar
does any of the providers let you pre-pay a domain for 50 or more years?
#
sebsel
cweiske is right, if you want to be buried you will have to get a similar arrangement.
#
petermolnar
suddenly envisioned smart tombstones
#
petermolnar
oh dear what have I done
#
cweiske
petermolnar, I don't know any providers
#
cweiske
they probably won't do that because of possible NIC price rises
#
petermolnar
"get your smart tombstone pre-ordered today!" build in solar powered raspberry pi that keeps serving your static site by serving a wifi with a built-in dns so whoever connects can indefinitely browser your website and it won't cost any money
#
sebsel
petermolnar take a look at Wubbo Ockels' (Dutch astronaut) tombstone http://www.twinsholland.nl/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Zorgvlied-1-1024x620.jpg
#
sebsel
but that's getting offtopic :)
#
cweiske
.. as long as wifi devices are around
#
petermolnar
sebsel off, but not that off, I'm starting to think that this is indeed a viable option to keep serving content without the need of any provider, although it'd be location/memorial restricted
#
petermolnar
cweiske that is true
#
Zegnat
I am not sure every country will allow you to require your heirs to do something in your name. You are better off setting up a trust to do that, who are legally bound by the rules of the trust. A single IndieWeb trust might even work: leave them money and transfer your hosting/domain to the IndieWeb Trust and they keep paying the bills.
#
cweiske
Zegnat++ good idea. indieweb trust
#
Loqi
zegnat has 20 karma in this channel (108 overall)
#
petermolnar
not certain if it's a doable option
#
petermolnar
certainly sounds interesting
#
sebsel
related / also bit off: Ockels' Twitter account is still online and stopped tweeting in 2014, without any indication of his death. https://twitter.com/Ockels
#
cweiske
deadman's notice feature in the indieweb trust
#
cweiske
you only have to grant oauth access

Zegnat what do you mean by “public facing”?
#
[miklb]
also, good morning all
#
Zegnat
Accessible by outside parties. E.g. apache through port 80

aaronpk: were the Loqi-issues in the library under TikTokBot, or some other part? (do I have to worry about it happening when I use TTB?)
#
aaronpk
yeah it was in the cinch.rb IRC client
#
aaronpk
i updated cinch and am running it in the latest ruby and it's working again
#
sknebel
ah, I see new commits. k, will upgrade Kaja as well
#
sknebel
cc sebsel, relevant for you as well
#
sebsel
oh, sknebel thanks, but my webhost blocked my home-IP pings, so no webmention-to-IRC for me atm :)
#
sknebel
I thought on other ports it worked?
#
sknebel
or did they block you afterwards?
#
sebsel
It did but stopped working. I want to get back to my earlier idea about a notification centre in Seblog
#
sebsel
I block most notifications on my phone anyway, so I should not try and re-create that. But I like a place to see them all, like Facebook's world-icon or GitHub nice way of showing them per repo.
#
sebsel
Ah, I see we documented that already under https://indieweb.org/notification#GitHub etc :)
davidmead joined the channel
#
sknebel
yeah, I have them in IRC only in a way where they don't create a notification or so, I just see when I come back to Quassel that the channel changed color
#
sebsel
yeah, I like it that way, I had that too for two days ;)
#
sebsel
Still want to try to go the non-dev way, crafting by own UI :)
