@prologic Not sure yet. First I need to get jenny working and figure out how to update my file. Then I can decide what to do with this account. I guess I have some reading and tinkering ahead of me.

looking into hosting my own twtxt.txt file now. leaning towards using jenny client. loving the relative simplicity of twtxt.

twtxt running over gopher and gemini too?! this is damn cool!

also: now changing my description to “lurking and learning” 😁

In-reply-to > @xavavu “I knit a scarf once” — that’s a feat! To someone who has zero knitting skills (me!) that’s certainly something. I would be boasting about it with anyone I meet. “Hey, nice meeting you! Just so you know, I knit a scarf once!” I would say, whilst putting my nose up a little.

@prologic Never took a pic. Ended up giving it to someone who lived in a colder place. Turns out I didn’t have much use for it in Southern California.

@fastidious ha! It really was a feat to behold. I don’t even remember how long it took me to consider it finished, but it feels like it was a long time. And, yes, it does come up in conversation every now and then. I’ll remember to put my nose up a little next time it does!

In-reply-to > @xavavu So tell us a bit about yourself 😁 I see you've mentioned you knitted a scarf once? 🤔

Well, to start… unlike most I see around here, I’m not a dev, coder, etc. I’m more of a curious user . My primary role currently is dad to an almost-age-3 kid.

The knit scarf was ages ago. One day I decided to buy some yarn and knitting needles. It was a basic stitch. I ended up, unintentionally, adding width along the way so one end was significantly wider than the other. It was still soft and warm though.

Hey, if anyone needs a name for a new yarn.social related project… scarf. Haha

In-reply-to > How does one pronounce twtxt? I assume it's derived from tweet and text but feel like it should sound more like "twitixt" I

Ah, cool. I like Yarn. Better branding than twtxt.
I’ll probably end up referring to “twtxt/yarn” (or something) when mentioning this realm elsewhere.

Ah, so it seems there’s no general consensus or official way to say it.

In my mind it started as “twi-text” which morphed into “twitixt” but I also like the idea of “twixt”
