Well… I moved recently and was thinking about setting up a VPN with my new fancy router. But I discovered something: the ISP put behind a giant NAT. Didn’t even know that Carrier Grade NATs were a thing and it never happened to me back in Portugal. Suggestions? I want a simple way to access the network remotely: just for the machines, not for the Internet.
Thanks for noticing the typos. I have considered org-mode for Emacs but I didn’t have time, nor patience to go around it and try it as I should. For now I kept using Hugo and publishing some notes here. I might try in the future.
After a scare - or a hard cold I must say which I’m still going through - I just received my Covid test back. Negative, fortunately! Now, gotta tell my body to kill this horrible cold that haunted me the past few days. Much better already though! Very relieved 😌
Well… it was a library issue. Upgraded it, working now. Unfortunately, when I added it, the dependency manager didn’t add the last version, but it’s not its fault. The source code is not correctly tagged it seems!
The thing is: I’ve done this in the past. I just tried with a random Mastodon instance and the error is precisely the HTTP signature. Either I’m not signing correctly, or I’m not proving the public key correctly. But the fact that I did this in the past and it’s still not working, it’s what’s annoying me the most. Also, I’m doing this in Go and I’m basing on @jlelse’s implementation and his ActivityPub Accept is working. And my code literally looks the same. If I don’t figure it out in the next hour, I’ll leave it for another day.
So… I just tried implementing ActivityPub again… and once again, something’s wrong! Yey… When I hit the follow button on a different instance, I receive the request, process it and send a signed Accept. But it seems it’s not actually working… At least the accept part…
Yeah, that’s true. But it was a tiny bit more complicated. I was serving the microformats JSON directly instead of the HTML and I forgot to add the domain to the parser I was using. Simply ended up removing that. There’s no point (I think) in me serving jf2 or mf2 JSON directly. Besides HTML with Microformats, I’m also serving ActivityStreams and I think that, unfortunately, that’s what X-Ray picks up, and not the HTML, so I’m trying to make sure it is as reliable as possible.
Oopsie! Thanks for letting me know. I noticed there was an issue with the URLs on the feeds (they missed the domain and were relative). Should be fixed now. Can I ask you which reader are you using? So I can check next time before making changes!
Just found this minimalist office suite on HackerNews and I couldn’t resist not to share it. It’s so funny how small and lightweight it is, and it works! That’s the best part.
@the_basebandit oh, it was just a joke! 😅
