After `stagit-gemini`, second git repository viewer for Gemini - `gmgitview`.


Sun 19 Dec 2021 08:23:57 PM CET

I finally got the main idea of mcabber UI. I don't know, why it took so long. The key concept is to switch between `chat mode on` and `off`. Inside `chat mode` user can interact with selected JID and window (can also give commands without typing JID for selected one), out of chat mode user interact with roster (contact list).

With that knowledge navigating through roster up and down is easy, as navigating through content of chat windows and history of commands.

Everything noted as had written earlier, ASCII-art/yellow notes/cheat sheets concept.


Sun 19 Dec 2021 04:49:19 PM CET

It could be popular topic, to talk about Web3 nowadays.

I've spotted link on @toby@tobykurien.com tinylog, and kev@fosstodon.org Mastodon's account.

"The Third Web" by tante@tante.cc

"The Web Is Fucked" manifesto by Kev Quirk

They are summarizing the ideas, which could lead us to, or must prevent us from, so called, Web3 (with that whole blockchain concept, which I technically understand - but I still treat it more like some hype). Second one is doing it in denying manner.

On the Mastodon thread has mentioned also:

-- Not a word about #Gemini?

-- It's basically trying to fork the web, which will end up being a nerds echo chambers.

I will be surprised when blockchain will be part of successful Web3 (whatever it would be) with so uneducated majority of Web2.0 user base, which it is now.

It's more likely to increase Geminispace user base, what could be also a hard thing to do. Or it's only my imagination, that we are more aware, that there is a need of catching up scientific wide context of many things, in comparison to today's world of re-shares of catchy headlines. So people would trust blockchain and Metaverse, or try to be more educated (for example in building their own (small) net)?

Sun 19 Dec 2021 04:10:51 PM CET

There are no much movement in the closest Geminispace (and Tinylog's space!). There was 16th issue of Smollzine, which I eye-scanned quickly. Not much on #gopher and #gemini tags around Fediverse. I don't have also too much free time, I'm stuck on first pages of Liu Cixin's Dark Forest, without energy for the next paragraphs. I gave up Astrobotany, except for watering my 20th generation plant. I haven't took any photo for several weeks, what stopped organizing photo gallery here, on my capsule (it's available only on my Mastodon's account). It's like cyber-winter, when everything slowed down covered with thick cyber-snow layer. Waiting for the arrival of cyber-spring.

Sun 12 Dec 2021 08:43:08 PM CET

I try to design my idea of: ASCII-art/yellow notes/cheat sheets concept. It's mainly for my own purpose, because sometimes I am forgetting some keyboard shortcut and I must looking for it on non-ASCII cheat sheets. I will be completing it (rest of shortcuts and programs), if it fulfils its task.

First cheat sheet describe Draw-It plugin for vim, which I'm using for drawing.



Sun 12 Dec 2021 07:54:33 PM CET

I've installed new version of amfora and tmuxp.

Amfora has two features which I will try to use.

Tmuxp is helper for tmux. Some time ago I planned to use "tmux freeze" for saving my default tmux layout. For example vim opened on tinylog.gmi in left pane, and gtl in right pane in first window, and some next windows.

Sat 11 Dec 2021 07:51:37 PM CET

Interesting point of view on Gopher purity.


Sun 05 Dec 2021 04:30:11 PM CET

I've read The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin finally. I had two previous and unsuccessful attempts. During third one, I easily settled down into book's story. I like every aspect of seeking of extraterrestrial life history from this book. I wasn't familiar with, maybe base, concepts of such searches so every term like Kardashev scale was a wow for me.


Sun 28 Nov 2021 08:28:13 PM CET

Tinylog-space is silent!

Mon 22 Nov 2021 09:46:05 PM CET

I've disabled nerdtree plugin for vim. It's funny, but I don't need it and the most time I've been switching it off.

Sat 20 Nov 2021 08:43:03 PM CET


I had two attempts to read The Three-Body Problem, I'm preparing for the third one. ;-)

Sat 20 Nov 2021 11:10:54 AM CET

This is happen again. There is so many toots in my home timeline that I wasn't able to process them through passing week. I tried to read and filter most interesting discussion but ergonomic of use of every client is so poor in that aspect, that I failed. Now, during morning Saturday's espresso, listening favourite radio program in the background, I carefully read every toot on #gopher and #gemini tags in my CLI client. It's calming. I am thinking of the best way of rederict some activity from Mastodon to Tinylog, but the real truth is that above tags are so interesting that I want to be on Mastodon for them. Tinylog cant' replace it.

Tue 16 Nov 2021 07:32:53 PM CET

@deerbard: I have just watered my plant (about 90%) and one other. Sometimes I am watering only two others, if my plant isn’t dry. I am choosing top wilting (flowering) plants, from community garden. It could be month of my Astrobotany experiment, but only one or two people watered my plant in reward. ;-)

Do you remember my Gopher's archaeology, there was also Archie. And Archie is still alive.

"[...] run by University of Warsaw's

Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling [...]"

It's closer than I might think. About 10km from me now. So I can almost touch the 30 years old technology by my hand. ;-)

Thu 28 Oct 2021 07:33:15 PM CEST

Hey retro computers and smallnet enthusiasts. Oscar winning Dune screenwriter Eric Roth banged out the screenplay using the MS-DOS.


Sun 24 Oct 2021 09:37:29 PM CEST

According to previous topic. I was watching First Prize-Winners' Concert of 18th Chopin Competition on my TV and I thought that in today's times orchestra must be prepared for video streaming. They aren't hidden behind music, and dark of the scene. They are sitting in front of me sitting on couch. I can see every hair, every freckle, crease on clothing. Sometimes progress could be literally distracting. The same concert on 80's TV receiver would give them some more intimacy and space for music.


I like Chopin's music, I try to review many standards. I love Mozart's Requiem, I love Vivaldi's Four Seasons, but whole compositions of Chopin are unique. His music is specific, and instantly recognizable. It is not surprising that the Japanese are so interested in his music.

Sun 24 Oct 2021 09:30:13 PM CEST

I've noticed that is some sort of tech-romantic answer to my "Gopher's questions", which I was asking. It isn't important how Gopher was like. It had been deleted so should be forgotten for ages. Internet Archive isn't the proper answer.


Sat 23 Oct 2021 09:04:51 PM CEST

Finally, the stagit-gemini is available.


I've put my repos on Geminispace:


Sat 16 Oct 2021 04:15:56 PM CEST

@deerbard: I don't use Telegram. But maybe it's good idea to start such activity on Gemini? My whole photo equipment is packed in drawer since years. I am doing only everyday family photos. Some time ago, when I had much free time, I was thinking about going into some film medium format system.

Thu 14 Oct 2021 10:06:19 PM CEST

There were some discussion on Fediverse about absence of Solderpunk but he start to write. He must be photography enthusiast because he responded to the same post I had response some time ago.



Thu 14 Oct 2021 09:56:38 PM CEST

I am writing on #Gemini mainly. But there is some magic to read that fixed length lines of #Gopher, with all ASCII-art decorations synchronized with layout of the whole article. It isn’t possible on Gemini. It’s good and bad the same time.


Thu 14 Oct 2021 09:48:04 PM CEST

@bacardi55: Yes, I was interesting in generating pages for Git repository on Gemini. Because it's stupid that we publish our projects about Gemini on WWW. And I've found Gmnigit/Stagit. Gmnigit has lack of advanced features, and didn't work with my repo (I'm must check this again). Before this I'd ha idea that I will improve Stagit. But I'm in shortage of free time for doing such big things now.

Sun 10 Oct 2021 07:48:46 PM CEST

Integration of twtxt and mutt.

Sat 09 Oct 2021 03:29:39 PM CEST

I'd like to write about my Astrobotany routine. I try to check everyday my plant, I'm watering if is it required. If I have water for watering other plants I explore community garden, and plants sorted by health section. I am watering one, or two plants and pick up some flower in return. I'm doing this for probably two weeks, every day - it could be more than 20-30 plants. After you have watered other plants the owner can see it on their status. But I think that nobody has watered my plant in return. ;-)

Sat 09 Oct 2021 02:58:08 PM CEST

As I have written, I'm doing very minimalistic approach of Geminispace existence. I have time only for watering my plant on Astrobotany, and Antenna aggregator. But today is Saturday, so I have some more time to do additional things here.

I have tried to organise my XMPP/Jabber presence and configure mcabber.

I looked in mcabber's source:


and found `settings_opt_get_int("muc_print_status");` line. Yep, of course I forgot about `~/.mcabber/mcabberrc`. I've put `set muc_print_status = 0` for `do not display joining/leaving members`. It was irritating. Finally I can see whole conversation at my MUC. It's great to has ability of reading sourcecode. Mcabber it's written in C, so it's inspiring to see old-school style app.

I also joined to `geminauts@chat.kwiecien.us` - there are about 40 Geminispace users, nice.

Wed 06 Oct 2021 08:33:32 PM CEST

To answer Deerbard and say that's everything ok. I haven't found time to write here in last days. My work and home routine have been taking too much time, and are no time left for Geminispace.

It isn't mean that I would abandon Tinylogs.

As Deerbard mentioned I also noticed less activity in know Tinylog base. Bacardi55 has been also complaining for lack of free time. Maybe it's because end of summer holiday time?

Sun 19 Sep 2021 07:19:20 PM CEST

As Deerbard mentioned `Fall 2021` mixtape is published at Konpeito. It's second mixtape I know on Geminispace, the second is Solderpunk's one. I have a while to listen them. Konpeito provide its tape in easier form, it isn't necessary to browse manually Youtube.



Sat 18 Sep 2021 04:55:40 PM CEST

Today I learned that in copy&paste mode of tmux you can use search command. Such things aren't possible in graphical window managers!

My first computer was C=, a chicken head as I found today.

:amoeba: /n./ Humorous term for the Commodore Amiga personal


:chicken head: /n./ [Commodore] The Commodore Business

Machines logo, which strongly resembles a poultry part. Rendered

in ASCII as `C='. With the arguable exception of the Amiga (see

{amoeba}), Commodore's machines are notoriously crocky little

{bitty box}es (see also {PETSCII}). Thus, this usage may owe

something to Philip K. Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of

Electric Sheep?" (the basis for the movie "Blade Runner"; the

novel is now sold under that title), in which a `chickenhead' is

a mutant with below-average intelligence.

Why GopherMail?

I was afraid that after leaving my job at Calvin in 1993, I might not

be able to get an account which has direct "live" access to the

Internet, and therefore have no more cool gopher access. I expect

that no matter where I live, I'll manage to at least find a service

(free, cheap, or commercial) that will let me send email to Internet

addresses. My GopherMail program lives on an Internet computer, such

as this Sun at Calvin where it started, or the computers at U of Minn,

or maybe someday on every gopher server on the net, and it accepts

email requests from anyone, on or off the Internet. It makes the

gopher connections on the Internet, then it emails the results back to

the person who requested them, to whatever their email address is.

I've written on my gemlog that the Small-net is finite. Today I spotted social media with 2880 limit of users. Some days I figured out that Geddit (Gemini Reddit) is purging inactive posts. The same idea of limits I've seen on some Gopher aggregators, which are now empty because they are inactive for long time but still ready for new content.

In my opinion I have sense of humour and I like abstract way of thinking. But I never could telling jokes. Despite this, it isn't stopping me from seek people for commenting reality in such abstract manner. The results are deplorable when someone has no sense of humor. Dangerous when you find the right person. ;-)

For the rest of mentioned aging symptoms - yes, it's popular comfort zone. I like my comfort zone. I like my style of clothing. I like my favourite meals and cuisine. I like my music. I like watching the same films (I watched all series of The Sopranos more than five times etc.).

[Repost from Mastodon to QBasic's game `Gorillas` screenshot] It was so different from today’s time. Computer has programming language build into OS and attractive open source game to inspire people new possibilities. You can play and after a while in natural way go into the code. Look how it’s working, and how to do first own computer game. Today’s new programmers don’t want to code games, they code “my first” MVC and micro services pattern POC.

Today I realized that I'm bored with Mastodon (micro-blogging?). I'm looking at timeline everyday, because in January I discovered there information about Geminispace. So I suppose that I can find there something interesting again. But the true is that more interesting things can be found on Geminispace and Gophersphere. Less time consuming is looking at Antenna, some Tinylogs and Phlogs, and following people here in other forms.

Mon 26 Jul 2021 06:28:33 PM CEST

Re: @bacardi55 Sun 25 Jul 2021 22:48 CEST

I'm thinking about preparing text for copying by "system" mechanism rather than copying text inside `gtl` by its internal mechanism. Internal mechanism need some dependencies, for example to `xclip` and complicate whole design of `gtl`. For me the best solution is `toot tui` approach.

I tried to record some screencast.

1. I started at 5th tab at `vim` window;

2. I changed it to 4th tab with `toot tui`;

3. I choose one of the toots in my timeline with several links;

4. "Status links" dialog is helper for browsing several links, which could be mixed inside toot with some text;

5. "Status links" dialog provide also functionality of opening link by system browser - it works for `lynx` browser, but unfortunately it doesn't work for `amfora` ...

6. ... but I can use "system" mechanism for copying text, I am using `tmux` and I pressed C-[, and navigate to start of text, space, enter, I changed to 5th and pressed C-] for pasting. I copied text to 5th tab, into `vim`;

And it's all possible inside `gtl`, without `xclip`, but structure of information inside `gtl` window doesn't help to do so. Text is placed on the whole screen, not inside smaller dialog, and the active cursor is set on the last column and last line of active window. Because there are no smaller dialog, active window is far away from text I'd like to copy. And I need to move cursor to this point.

The most tempting thing in emacs is swarm of advanced packages, which seems to be superior than that of vim plugins. Vim plugins are great, bu there are in most cases rather like a powerful extension of text editor. Emacs packages are more advanced, and often they are like standalone utilities embedded into mechanic of editor environment.

Via: "Old Computer Challenge Wrapup" by jmcbray@carcosa.net

In Emacs, I used:

* mu4e – For email.

* Gnus – For actual, NNTP-based Usenet

* org-mode – For scheduling, planning, and note-taking.

* org-roam – For additional note-taking.

* elpher – For Gopher and Gemini

* eww – For most of my web browsing.

I have been taking notes the links (some HTTP, Gemini and Gopher). Now I'm using bookmarks in Amfora, and Comitium (Gemini) and Lynx (HTTP and Gopher) browsers. But I realized that it's too much notes, and in to many places. Is there any good bookmarking tool for linux, which could handle many protocols. It'd be great to set something like below for Gemini, and Gopher. I don't now how people are configure this in multi-protocol for (small and big) web browsing.

@lykso@lyk.so: Gemini isn't too technical for everyday users. I think that it shows only that people aren't educated in computers. I like some gemlog post (it's in tinylog archive) that Gemini is a good way to teach children how to effectively use old computers (in opposition to buying a new one year after year), and UNIX systems. People can't use computers, they are using only Google, Facebook, and some other webapps. They are knowing lesser than 10-20 years ago.

@deerbard: About making chat on tinylog. It's true that too many responses are hard to tracking. But I think that tinylogs are something more dedicated communication in smaller groups. I've written on gemlog about Gophersphere, and Circumlunar Zaibatsu. They base assumption is that they want to build groups of maximum 100-150 users per one server, and federate them in Circumlunar Universe. They also split user group of one server into smaller groups for better socialization. It's based on Dunbar's number theory. And it's opposite to Mastodon, where you handle many followers and toots.

I try to follow every tinylog for now, because there are not so many tinylogs, but in future I probably would organize it.

Thu 01 Jul 2021 10:18:35 PM CEST

@bacardi55@gmi.bacardi55.io: I know, that it's GitHub/Codeberg is more popular, and more powerful tool. But I have been thinking about it, especially about Tinylog RFC, that for Geminispace oriented tools there will be more proper to do all discuss on Geminispace. It will make Geminispace more complete, and self-sufficient. Geminispace need a Git interface, and some workflow for such projects.

Rather, from a perspective of "Why is everyone wasting their time on

this?". I can't think of any good reasons for gopher to *need* TLS

It could be some echo of the Gemini protocol conception, and the official birth witch came two months later.

* As I found, its author is mieum;

As a stranger in a strange world I am traveling through Gophersphere.

Thought for today - there are much more ASCII-art than in Gemini. There are graphical headings, and (in favour of 80 chars text lines) some graphics inside paragraphs - for example first capitalised letters, which got 3-5 lines of height.

Real baroque of text files.

Interesting post about junior developer meeting his boss.

It's interesting to see his junior point of view, and recall from memory my situation then, and now. Young people afraid what the boss could say, bosses afraid what they can hear, and sometimes take much time to prepare what to talk. Feedback could be hard task.

The worst is to meet lazy boss, who don't have time for prepare and don't have anything to communicate. But not many employees are dare to request a real feedback, also not so many want a real one. The most important in company is communication.

@bacardi55, @frrobert: TUI client for tinylogs, and all work of Bacardi55 is inestimable, and it's great job. It will overcome Lace in number of users for sure. But simplicity of 150 sloc script, which do so much is so inspiring. I haven't seen something like it before. And all this, against all folks which are saying that TLS is a big obstacle, in... Bash.

Tue 15 Jun 2021 05:18:49 PM CEST

@bacardi55: You are right that Mastodon-like solutions, have content which is temporary in its design. It's something like /dev/blah-blah-blah, which is not far from /dev/null ;-)

But I try to organise somewhat this heap.

Tue 15 Jun 2021 05:07:43 PM CEST

@frrobert: So we are using the same OS, and it isn't a version mismatch. Now I'm away from my computer so I will check again every commit and I'll send to you a summary what is working, and what isn't.

Previously I thought that uouu's version is the latest so I am using that version, and commit which I wrote in previous post. I wasn't aware that there are normal and dev branch, now I don't remember which I was trying from your Gitlab. I was following by link on your page, I think. And the empty output was the same as in uouu's fork last commit.

Sun 13 Jun 2021 11:25:02 PM CEST

@bacardi55: I also saw this practice of deleting old tweets and toots. Of course everybody could do whatever want, but for me its has two flaws:

1. Posts who I try to follow have often some informations, which I fav/boost - if everybody would delete content I should before any response quote full for my archive purpose.

2. I like long archives, my Polish blog has archives from 2004. Maybe most of the content is useless, but whole set is more authentic. It shows some evolution of myself, and a real person (event like, it's only online avatar with some self-moderation).

Sun 13 Jun 2021 11:16:26 PM CEST

@frrobert: Thanks, I am running a version from uoou's Gitlab and I had must revert from 80316adc to a36052c5 because the last give an empty output. The same is on your last commit. I think that I have all needed commands, and it must be some version mismatch. I am working on 20.04 LTS distribution, so I could have some older version of commands. I will investigate this later.

BTW Thanks for such great utility, it's very inspiring to have so many functionalities in so few source lines.

@bacardi55, @reaton: At work I develop system for Windows user, and some tools are only Windows version. Backend is *unix. Some developers try to use Linux on workstations, it isn't forbidden, but sometimes need an effort to do so. As I said, Windows 10 and Office 365 for corporate user is the best Windows I have been working for years. So it isn't so bad. ;-)

@reaton: Microsoft today is making much work to include some Linux tools and workflows. So you wouldn't be a hostile in Windows world. My firsts warm-up question on recruitment interview is always about Linux and every person who works on it as everyday user has extra point. ;-)

Yesterday it was third month anniversary of my tinylog.

Sat 12 Jun 2021 10:30:53 PM CEST

@reaton: It's funny, because I was using at home only Linux for about 15 years. I was working on Windows at work for the same time. I am using MacOS for about 5 years. I like Linux, and my home workflow is great (some time ago I was doing much DSLR raw editing on it). I was disappointed also, when I couldn't resolve issues with my WiFi on last kernel update. I praise Windows 10 and full Office 365 license at work, for corporate user this solution is fine. But of course we all know the biggest issues on the Windows side (Git, Docker, package managers, console - which Microsoft try to improve). I also like MacOS for their seamless integration of devices. And I laugh at them about their "amazingness".

And ... I realised that I hate only one thing. Sometimes I too old for changes. And I don't like if my tools and workflows (in every of above OS) are changing. ;-)

@bacardi55, @adele: I will be happy to give you an opinion on draft.

From my side, I would try to make something light. Like our author, avatar, license information. Rather a good practise than an obligatory thing. I spotted some tinylogs with for eg. simplified date format. It's not OK for Gtl, Lace script etc., but it's good for people, who can be less technical than we.

Don't trust crontab! ;-)

Sun 06 Jun 2021 10:38:05 PM CEST

Today I figured out, for the next time, how irritating for me is Mastodon. More I get into it, and more people I follow, it's harder to manage all these information. I tried several clients, and there are no good solutions for threading and browsing through some topic. I try to look at #gemini hashtag. Sometimes I look at the same posts (boosted, or displayed second time), sometimes I give up and don't look at it for some time (so I lost some posts). The reason of characters limit in Mastodon must be for it, that it is designed for quick reactions, without any information value. Then we don't need advanced organizing features in clients. And, as many people do, we can delete statuses older than eg. three months. One of reason for not quitting is that I found there information about Geminispace. So without Mastodon, I wouldn't be here.

Sun 06 Jun 2021 10:28:46 PM CEST

I was thinking about tinylogs and a better way for tracing to whom subscribed people are responding. It's easier than I thought. We should use links, so backlinks will show our connections also for tinylogs. How it should be done?

@adele I'm also using a ProtonMail but after a while I'm also disappointed. As you wrote, there are no way for easy SMTP. Their mail client isn't mature enough (for example I had problem with sending a plain text only mails). And what is the most disappointing for me - their solution isn't promote PGP/GPG, and security is seamless only in communication between ProtonMail users. Communication outside ProtonMail is complicated as in every average mail client. So for what we use ProtonMail? I don't believe in their marketing about Switzerland as symbol of security.

[PL] Czytając wpis Lukasa na temat rozplanowania niewielkiej przestrzeni przypomniała mi się wystawa w Zachęcie, na którą trafiłem przypadkiem. Pokazywano na niej sztukę pt. projekty bloków w czasach PRL i co najciekawsze: 1) istniały modele powielane w projektach poszczególnych osiedli (chociażby metraże i układ pokoi, planowane na konkretne modele rodzin - 2, 3, 4 osobowe); 2) istniała produkcja mebli celowana w takie metraże; Tj. to czego dziś brakuje najbardziej, i jakby nie chcieć robić mebli na wymiar, to małe mieszkanie bardzo łatwo zagracić.

"comitium add gemini://geminispace.info/backlinks?szczezuja.space -w", I have added this backlink checking site for my Comitium aggregator. If it would work, I will notice every backlink in the Geminispace. ;-)

It's interesting what will bring first release of @bacardi55 tinylog's client. There is some teaser on author's tinylog. First tinylog marketing on Geminispace, ever. :-)

Wed 26 May 2021 06:24:25 PM CEST

I forced myself and have tidied all gemlogs signatures, and licensing. The same for tinylog. I added also avatar and author information like @adele. Uff...

Wed 26 May 2021 05:12:17 PM CEST

@adele - I must repost from Mastodon. It's easier to find information on a tinylog, than on Mastodon feed. Section after # and before ## in #Lace is ignored. This is [author's post about Lace]:

[...] You can have whatever you want at the top - a level 1 heading and an introductory paragraph or whatever, that's all fine. [...]

@bacardi55 - I am editing my tinylog *by the power of Grayskull*... ekhem, vim. ;-) It's easy:


:r date (arrow up key, get command from history without typing)



By the power of Grayskull



Any script will be slower, and less enjoyable, than my super vim power.

Oyster was approved as part of Unicode 12.0 in 2019 and added to Emoji 12.0 in 2019.

You must update emojis. ;-)

Seriously maybe my emoji isn't as standard as I think.

Today's tmux heaven - C-a z is for zooming pane to full window. Tmux is so polished that it will display "Z" (as zoom) in window list bar.

Tue 25 May 2021 07:32:47 PM CEST

@deerbard I think that showing emojis/favicons in Lace depends on terminal app and terminal settings like xterm-color.

Tue 25 May 2021 07:28:33 PM CEST

It's interesting because I thought about Tinylog as microblog. But it's true, that it could be treated as social stream as @adele, @bacardi55 have written.

Envied Przemek the favicon. So I set my own - 🦪. In Polish my nick "Szczeżuja" means "duck mussel". But there are no duck mussel emoji, so I must choose oyster. Oyster is foreign cousin cousin of duck mussel! ;-) My favicon is now visible in Lace!

There is a lack in functionality in Flounder's feeds - there are always flounder.online links, instead of new domain. I have put a issue.

Sun 23 May 2021 12:11:25 PM CEST

Be aware of "lace update" command, because last commit 80316adc on https://gitlab.com/uoou/dotfiles/-/blob/master/stow/bin/home/drew/.local/bin/lace caused that lace stopped working on my machine. Restored to commit a36052c5 and everything is back to normal.

Adele informed on Mastodon that it will be implemented tinylog support for gemini://pollux.casa. It's great news for popularizing idea of tinylogs and tinylog feed format introduced in Lace. Pollux.casa seems to have more features than Flounder.online.
