I admit that my tool is not made for automatization. If you need to process ("pipe") hex strings automatically, a Perl script might be a better choice...


Useful for JSON transfer analysis. Enjoy.

(Update: Smaller binary.)

Source code:

After one year of not doing anything with this software, I wanted to return to development. I wanted to fix a long-standing pagination issue. Turns out threading is broken, it stops working unexpectedly while trying to generate a site... :(

(I moved the code to my server with a GitHub mirror, but I cannot announce it on the site itself because of that. Well... lol, I guess.)

Heads up: plan9port's Acme supports file names with spaces now.

Where are their releases on non-anonymous servers?

I doubt that anyone would want to work on something that has only been released without having a license to do so.

Living Room / Who‘s on Usenet?

Among my to-be-finished pieces of software, there is a sane Usenet client for Windows. Does anyone here feel the urge to have it ready for NANY 2021 or can I safely postpone it?

I love how the website for this "privacy tool" includes Google Analytics.

... and the versions 5 of both the Mercury Mail server and the Pegasus Mail client, having been postponed since 2006, are around the corner now [2] - this time for real!


Ahh, modern times. :)

Again, I failed to finish my most impressive two projects in quite some time. But I have already worked on one of them today...  :P

Thank you, all (other) participants - the results are awesome as always!

.txt files have no code page. Did you mean: Encoding?
There are solutions for that.

Every time someone talks about an omnipresence, I wonder where we scientists have lost the fight.

NANY 2020 Entry Information

Application Name birdcries
Short Description View tweets with privacy - and without bullshit.
Web Page
Download Link
System Requirements
  • Server: Perl 5, CPAN and a number of modules listed in the README behind the download link.
  • Client: Any web browser should do.
Author me

Replace in any Twitter status link by to get a less shitty read-only view of the tweet which is faster and will respect your privacy!

See this example tweet.

Known Issues
  • birdcries cannot display videos, pictures et cetera, nor will it load discussions. If you need a "full-featured" alternative tweet view, I can recommend nitter instead.
  • Protected tweets will spawn an error message. Sorry.

Firefox has lost its track somewhere in its 20s. Poor jwz - I’m sure he’s embarrassed.

Slant is not a reliable site to compare software. Try it yourself.

I can not do without those extensions I use regularly.

Which ones?

Chrome is very very slow for me.

Try Vivaldi.

Same same, but different. Firefox with annoyance reducers is still Firefox. And Pale Moon has become a nightmare as well.
