@thomasfuchs @laura In which dialect of English?
[I used to live on Koch Lane in America, and I gave up trying to say it to people and spelled it instead, as Coke, Cosh, Cotch, Cock, Cork, Corsh, Cortch variants multiplied - Californian English has neither the German 'o' or 'ch' ] sounds

@leip4Ier the logo they put on the cards does look like the WiFi one

Kevin Marks boosted

it's funny when someone calls credit cards' contactless payments "wifi"
recently heard this: "if your card has wifi, then you... oh, yes, it has"

not yet...

@Gargron GoHugo is good at wrangling those kinds of things. Prepend a little front matter and it mungs out all the ways to look things up

@bhaugen @strypey @cwebber indieweb broadly assumes public webpages by default, and gives ways to mark them up with information (as microformats), and small spot protocols to achieve different things (notifying of links or changes, identification and auth, posting etc).

Doing this with non-public pages is possible, but harder and less widely implemented. chat.indieweb.org is a good place to go to find people talking about it.

@Gargron what triggers a verify check on a profile mirrored from another instance? eg if you follow xoxo.zone/@kevinmarks on mastodon.social, when will it check the rel-me links in that profile?

@Gargron do you verify links in a profile mirrored from another instance ? Or do you trust that instance to verify them and put them in the api?

@Gargron oh, if i delete them and re-add them it verifies them. That is a bit confusing.

@Gargron overall this is great! Thank you!
It isn't showing verification ticks for other mastodon instances (the circled ones are from github.com/Zegnat/verify-me-lo ) - also the redirection link at the top should have a rel=me on it too (and maybe a rel=canonical, though that is more aguable)
Another subtle thought - you could remove the rel=nofollow if the link is verified…

Apps like Pocket and other blogs understood that users want to read the content. So when users start scrolling down to READ the content they hide the sticky header. When user scrolls top, they predict that user might want something else and display the bar again. Nice experience.
Navigation, especially on sites and apps that focus on content reading should be like a good friend: around to help when you need them but don't want them to be around 24/7 ^^

Hi I’d like to add you to my amateur network on Mastodon

@Saul put it in aeroplane mode on the tube so it isn't turning radio power up looking for signal in the tunnels

@stephaniewalter I use this bookmarklet on medium and other sites that ruin readability and scrolling with space bar by using sticky headers alisdair.mcdiarmid.org/kill-st

@Gargron the trick I use is to rewrite twitter urls to the user intent page, which has a proper rel=me and an hcard. Eg twitter.com/intent/user?screenname=kevinmarks
