Something completely different

I will take part in a little experiment with a couple of friends, trying this newfangled technology thingy with games and stuff. So tonight, Feb 14th, 2017, 20:15 CET, we will try to release our inner Bernhard Langer and amaze you with our virtual golfing skills!

Come and watch LIVE, in color and whatnot at https://twitch.tv/phako78 (that’s with a camera pointing at me) or https://twitch.tv/fallenbeck (that’s with a camera pointing at someone else) – Unfortunately, except for some swearing, it’ll be German language only.

Pino as in twitter

Since Echofon cut off custom-built Firefoxes I was looking for a new twitter client. The only one matching my needs was Pino. Unfortunately since the mandatory activation of OAuth in twitter it stopped working. But: No fear! I hacked it to use librest which supports OAuth ootb. Currently it is a bit flaky (crashes at startup sometimes for no obvious reason) and there is no easy way to log in. It currently uses librest’s demo consumer keys which is probably not the most fortunate thing to do. I will request own credentials as soon as it runs more stable. Stay tuned for updates, I will push it to a public repository really soon.

Update: Seems upstream pino will contain librest with OAuth in version 0.3. So I’ll keep my ugly hack to myself 😉
