schestowitzTwo gemini suggestions (other than that email message we were sent)Apr 07 00:18
schestowitz1) "Articles from Techrights (Plain Text)" (should we change that to say "Gemtext"?)Apr 07 00:19
schestowitz2) Should we add a link to the feeds? Should we make a page with the index for all months and years? Like a full archives index?Apr 07 00:20
schestowitz"daily-feed" and "feed" also don't seem to be listed anywhere and they ought to be mentioned in the front landing page, I thinkApr 07 00:22
schestowitz'd rather ask before implementing anything; it's not my capsule, it's shared work. I've meanwhile made many improvements to and the node seems to be reachable again, most of the time without any timeouts :-D \0/Apr 07 00:23

schestowitz>> it fits in within our focus. Also, are there patent aspects likeApr 07 06:15

schestowitzDefinitely sounds like something we would publish :-)Apr 07 06:15
schestowitzwith the new site design ("mobile") Krebs no longer sends the title of the blog posts correctly and it defaults to 0Apr 07 09:32

Techrights-secI'll look at the Krebs feed.Apr 07 11:46
Techrights-secOk.  Fixed.  It should work starting tomorrow.Apr 07 11:46
Techrights-secCommitted in Git, too, now.Apr 07 11:46
Techrights-secProbably the second-level headings ought to be first-level headings to match with                                            Apr 07 17:00
Techrights-secthe rest of the capsule.Apr 07 17:00
Techrights-secHow is gemini:// generated?Apr 07 17:00
Techrights-secFound it: , somehow that was overwritten.Apr 07 17:00
Techrights-secI've integrated the generation of the archive into the script                                            Apr 07 17:00
Techrights-secSomehow I just noticed that the dates in the articles are hammered.  e.g.Apr 07 17:00
Techrights-secgemini:// 07 17:00
Techrights-secIt says "11.01.20" but should have said "2020-11-01" or similar.  :(Apr 07 17:01
schestowitzThanks for automating this, I most did that with Kate search and replace, knowing it would need updating at most once a monthApr 07 17:03
schestowitzRegarding date formats, maybe that makes sorting harderApr 07 17:03
Techrights-secNo problem but I think I may look at doing a search and replace on the dateApr 07 17:32
Techrights-secformats.Apr 07 17:32
Techrights-secThe date in the path is good.  It is just that the first heading isApr 07 17:32
Techrights-secoften a date and that is in some strange order.  It is impossibleApr 07 17:32
Techrights-secto tell the date from the context unless it happens to be something obvious likeApr 07 17:32
Techrights-sec 12.29.20 or something.Apr 07 17:32
Techrights-secIt'll take some thought to figure out an approach to fixing it.  Apr 07 17:32
schestowitzI wonder why US historically chose such a formatApr 07 17:33
