I spotted this link on Fediverse and I was curious if it will be ok in a text web browser. So I've been browsing this in w3m on Sunday morning. Everything is ok, and the ASCII arts are beautifully displayed in my text environment.

I was busy through past week. Today I catch up things in small net. I've sent an e-mail about Gopher, in response to a gemlog article. I've improved my mastodondigest script with ZERO WIDTH SPACE suggested by Alex. I've dug up in my memory Kelbot capsule with his TUI/tmux configuration asked about in Fediverse.

I could do probably a lot more today, but I don't have to much energy. Weather is sunless in the last days. I'm waiting for the spring time.

My tmux text information desk with GTL for Tinylogs, self-made: fingerclub.sh, astrobotanyring.sh and mastodondigest.sh scripts for gathering information from Finger, Astrobotany and Mastodon.


I've tune up my mastodondigest.sh this weekend. It's presenting information as Gemtex now and extract links at the bottom of every toot.

So It's done.


Mastodon digest script in Bash, which reads followed accounts list and presents last toot in chronological order.

Today I was playing with Mastodon API and curl. It's very easy to set up token to access API. And it's easy to go through account and followed information.

But API wasn't helpful to me with pagination of the response to put it into a quick bash script. There is a bigger effort needed to do so.

I'd like to write bash script putting the last toot of every my followed account. I will make a second try in the future.

But I discovered also that in the web preferences of Mastodon account, there is a special tab to check inactive followed accounts. I didn't know about it.

Today’s Gemini DiscoGem is full of goods.


Last Week News capsule I didn’t know earlier.


And Kypan capsule which lead me to the main prize for all text-only folks:

Several days ago I spotted an answer to my everlasting question:

- How you were using the Internet?

New year's fireworks atmosphere themed ASCII-art. ;-)

Wish you a lot of plain-text information and a renaissance of text protocols in the new year!

New Year's cleaning.

I've put all tinylog's entries for 2022 in a separate file, the same way as for 2021.

You can navigate that files through links in the header of tinylog page.

I'm preparing a new gemlog entry, but it's still in progress. This holiday season I spent mainly outside the net.

But in the last days I've got several mails from people around small net and I replied for them. It was satisfying because it's nice to use plain text mail for conversation. It's seems to be a forgotten way of communication nowadays.
