xmpp web client
2016-12-07T08:46:31Z via social.gl-como.it To: PublicDear lazyweb,
I'm setting up an xmpp server for myself and my family, and that's the easy part.
Now my problem is that some of my relatives can't install a real client everywhere, because reasons, and would need a web interface to be able to connect at least some of the time, and this is where I'm having problems.
Does anybody know of such a client that is still under development (even in mostly maintenance mode, but not completely abandoned), and has a decent chance to work?
Of course it has to be free software, and installing it on my own server shouldn't be a nightmare (lots of bonus points if it is already in Debian, a bonus point or two if at least it is reasonably easy to package).
I've also received some answers on friendica ( http://social.gl-como.it/display/3e3ce0df205847cc6135c1b142694988 ) and I think I'll start by looking at jsxc.

My fight against CDN libraries
A very nice writeup and awesome work by David Revoy of the Pepper & Carrot webcomic:
A CDN ( acronym for Content Delivery Network ) library is often a single line of code proposed "generously" by an external service to let you link and embed a complex features, the easy way. A common example is Google Web Fonts:
<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet">
Paste this line in the header of your website and 'tadaaa!', you can use the font 'Lobster' to decorate all your texts. Easy, quick, efficient and fast to load. Merci Google. So, what's the problem?
... And I didn't had a CDN only for Google Web Font. I had also a CDN for Addthis (easy social-networks buttons), Gravatar (easy avatars), Font-awesome (easy icons), etc... As many, many website around!

No more debugging (for today)
2016-11-28T20:54:05Z via social.gl-como.it To: PublicThis afternoon my SO asked me to help him use kicad, because he was having issues understanding how it was working.
I was a bit surprised but said "ok, sure", and found out that it has been having serious rendering issues and spent the rest of the afternoon and the evening trying to reproduce it around.
In the meanwhile, he was trying to understand issues with a firewall that wasn't working properly.
Then we were getting ready to go to sleep, turned the alarm clock on and... it didn't. Then the led blinked a few times. So I grabbed the multimeter and checked the power supply (it gives 4.something V instead of the 7 it is supposed to).
Then my SO and me looked each other, laughed, and we said "no. we're NOT debugging our alarm clock this evening".
This looks like an excellent time for a dead tree book (no, I'm not going to trust the ebook reader not to break, not this evening) and then a good night of sleep.

trAInsported - a game that teaches you programming
Just stumbled upon this game, where the aim is to program a simple AI to control trains to finish different levels as quickly and efficiently as possible. You write the AI using the Lua programming language. A simple interactive tutorial get's you started and teaches you the basics of Lua and how the game works. You can make different AI's compete on a given track, and you can even upload your AI's to their website and have it compete with AI's others have uploaded. (Or you can run your own server and have your friends upload AI's to compete!)
Looks like quite a neat way to learn the basics of programming if you have a child that shows some interest in this direction.
The game is released under the wtfpl.

The link to the game (missing from the official post, but added as a comment) is http://trainsportedgame.no-ip.org/index.php
Apparently, it's not in @Debian yet, nor I could find it among the packages being worked on. Maybe somebody would like to solve this :)Show all 5 repliesComplimenti per i DMs :D https://bits.debian.org/2016/11/new-developers-2016-10.html

The Weird Geonames Tour (the Bizzarrone edition)
2016-10-20T15:47:45Z via social.gl-como.it To: PublicI was chatting with friends about the weirdness of some village names in Lombardy and came up with a proposal for an *international* tour of some of them.
Malnate, Cantello, Ligurno, Stabio, Ligornetto, Genestrerio, Bizzarrone, Uggiate Trevano, Beregazzo con Figliaro, Castelnuovo Bozzente, Tradate, Torba, Gornate, Lozza, Gurone, Malnate.
An estimate made with OSRM would place it at some 50 km.
I'm not sure I'll ever do anything about it, but it looked like it was worth posting.
(Bizzarrone is the name of a border passing between Italy and Switzerland, and the settings of a series of sketches on the swiss TV, Frontaliers)
