holy crap bittorrent v2 makes bittorrent even MORE AMAZING how did I miss this
collecting fediverse messages is useful for my next step which is collection building (outbox, followers, etc). It’s also interesting to see the behaviour of other nodes. For example whenever I mention @jb55 i noticed many nodes webfingering my node immediately. Also random delete actor messages when nodes delete an account (that I can not verify since the pubKey is gone , uhh)
so my chibipub endpoint is running: @jb55 I can receive messages there, just can't send yet. feel free to send some messages :)
Here's the project I"m talking about:
It's a cellular automata, like Conway's Life, but restricted to wires; someone designed this programmable computer in it; I'm porting my old Flash app to vanilla JS to run it.
The thing is, there's many different ways to program this. So I could make a video or live stream session for each one.
After thinking about it I realized there are some implicit things that are very important: when I say small function I also imply pure functions. If you have a bunch of small functions that modify global (side effect) then you’re going to have a bad time. Maybe worth capturing these nuances in some writing. Basically programming bliss = composing programs out of small pure functions that snap together via their types. This is why Haskell is so much fun and reliable.
after programming for so long I don’t even know if I could write anything interesting about it. I feel like it would be boring: “all you need is functions and plain ol data, everything else is noise”. This really is the essence of programming. What more is there to say? Keep your functions small? minimize function domain? Separate side effects from pure code? Maybe worth writing some notes and see where it goes.

can’t stop thinking about anyons. I’m afraid I’m going too far down the physics rabbit hole and might get stuck there for awhile. the idea that there are more interesting configurations of matter that we don’t see in nature is extremely fascinating. https://futureofmatter.com
ugh I'm so dumb. RSA_verify takes a hash of the message being signed instead of the message itself. of course. derp. works now! chibipub can verify fediverse messages. yay.
