@movq Haha! yeah sounds about like my HS CS program. A math teacher taught visual basic and pascal. and over on the other end of the school we had "electronics" which was a room next to the auto body class where they had a bunch of random computer parts scavenged from the district decommissioned surplus storage.

The advanced class would piece together training kits for the basic class to put together.

Delphi at school, later Java and an own teaching assembler. Uni started out with Ada and then added Java as well. Here and there a few other languages, like Prolog (that I knew from school, though), I think C, the hardware guys brought us VHDL and some assembler that I don't recall anymore.

It would be nice to be able to mute/block entire domains, at the user level. Say, I don't want to see any "cyberlandia.pt" related twtxts while peeking at "Discover" or anywhere else, then I simply add that domain to my "Block list".

@prologic High five, I’m “generation Java” as well! ๐Ÿ˜‚ There were some leftovers of C++, we used that in the computer graphics courses in Uni a lot. But pretty much anything else that involved programming was Java.

(There was nothing even remotely resembling CS in our “high school”. That school neither had the required teachers nor the equipment / PCs.)

Things can get very interesting when we add the iter.Pull function in the mix. It works like pythons yield from.

When dealing with unsigned integer, I always write e.g. `unit8` instead of `uint8`. Every. Single Time. And this is usually only noticed by the compiler. I would blame the auto-correction, but I – luckily – don't have any.

@xuu Oh, I wasn't aware of this! Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

I do like that they move away from one shared variable per loop to an own one per iteration. That makes sooo much more sense. I don't hit that often, but it happened a few times in the past and getting this figured out is not the easiest thing in the world.

I have to read up on the yield functions. From your examples I fear iterators would have been more useful. Let's see.

I would love to see a world where ones twtxt feed is defined by webfinger. So `@xuu@txt.sour.is` => https://text.sour.is/user/xuu/twtxt.txt

Then my identity can exist independent of the feed location. And I can host multiple protocol types for my feed. Ie. http/gopher/Gemini/irc DCC/etc

@mckinley a few points:

Technical:

1. Single point of failure: Relays, though decentralised, could be targeted for censorship or sabotage.
2. Message integrity: Messages are not inherently linked, raising concerns about spoofing and manipulation.
3. Data storage: Clients may need to download large amounts of data, especially historical messages, impacting performance.
4. Limited functionality: Currently focuses on text-based communication, lacking media sharing or advanced features.

Usability:

1. Steep learning curve: It is still young and requires technical knowledge for setup and use.
2. Limited user base: Finding an active community and familiar faces can be challenging.
3. Unintuitive interfaces: Client applications may not be as user-friendly as established platforms.

Also, full of crypto bros, crypto bros wanna be, and, well, worthless crypto (mixed with some porn, nazi crap, etc.). But go ahead, go through the same phases I went (I even ran my own relay), and see it for yourself. :-)

I finally found the NASM assembler.

https://nasm.us/index.php

I had heard that name before, many times, but somehow never looked into it. Weird. ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿค”

This is the kind of program I was looking for.

1. It is free software. Especially in the DOS ecosystem, free/libre software is a very scarce resource.
2. It’s a small command line program, not a huge behemoth.
3. Documentation appears to be well written.
4. It can even cross-compile DOS binaries from Linux.
