Looks like twitter no longer demands that replies start with the @-name of the person they’re directed to, e.g. https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters/status/435030572860465152
This makes @t-style reply-to-self as continuations of notes even more feasible as a practise.
@_minego links with the
rel semantic can be used both in human-visible markup for improved back-compatibility and quick error-spotting (as well as layering on top of existing solution) and also in HTTP headers for machine-only use
@_minego which existing clients would be broken by adding a classname or
rel value to the HTML page someone downloads something from, or a
Link header to the download itself?
Of course the more significant thing is UI considerations: how to offer this info to the downloader, how to explain what the various possible outcomes mean and what action the user should take as a result of them
#idea: a microformat for download signatures/checksums, allowing browsers to automatically verify files without people having to go into the terminal and use
@sophiedennis haha yeah “dissociation” is the French word for trompette rhythms to go with the melody, abbreviated to “disso”. But if anyone could do disco gurdy, it’s Gregory Jolivet ;)
Hungry after walk so tried making black sesame seed paste dumplings — similar to previous mochi but almost no sugar, with the dough boiled instead of baked. Interesting texture, would certainly add some honey to the paste next time as it needs a little more sweetness.
Followed these ingredients: rasamalaysia.com/black-sesame-dumplings-tang-yuan/2/, going to try making justonecookbook.com/recipes/black-sesame-ice-cream next
When using #django to send
content-disposition: attachment responses, you MUST explicitly set the response encoding (charset) otherwise windows will assume the response is in whatever-weird-encoding-windows-uses, rather than UTF-8 (you are using UTF-8, aren’t you?).
CSV example code:
response = HttpResponse(utf_8_encoded_csv_text, status=200, mimetype="text/csv; charset=utf-8") response['Content-Disposition'] = 'attachment; filename=data.csv'
It seems that some weird old applications like SPSS need a BOM in there as well, even though UTF-8 doesn’t have a BOM. Add that like this
response.content = '\xef\xbb\xbf' + response.content
before sending the response
Beautiful soundscape walking back through Reykjavík this evening — seamless gradient between vetrarhatid.is large-scale audio+visual installation and bird sounds on the pond, punctuated with ice underfoot and the constant murmur of traffic.
Had to repair my headphones yet again so went to @hakkavelin, started experimenting with #gurdy wheel speed measuring devices. Got a basic Vishay CNY70 reflective optical sensor circuit working, soldered into my PIC demo board for initial testing before I make a tiny package to go on the gurdy itself.
#tabdump (all PDFs unfortunately):
Achievement unlocked at #hakkavelin: compiled and burned a C program to a PIC 16F886, using main.c written by hand and more-or-less understood.
Returned to Iceland to find RTC chip free samples waiting for me @ Vísar HQ, solidifying maximintegrated.com as my favourite semiconductor company — samples shipped to Iceland, of all places, arriving within days of being ordered.
Checked into Halsway Manor
All prepped for Halsway Gurdy weekend, time to enjoy the sights and sounds of winterlightsfestival.is
