Hello I’m Morgan McMillian also known as thrrgilag in various communities. I am a software engineer with an obsession for for Linux, open-source software, and tech in general. Also check out my gemini capsule for addtional content.
I have entered the world of Project Gemini. Gemini, for the uninitiated, is a new internet protocol which fits somewhere between gopher and the web. I’m finding its simplicity to be rather appealing so I figured I would dive right in and start publishing my own capsule (gemini://thrrgilag.net/). You can find a list of clients at https://gemini.circumlunar.space/software/. So take a peek and let me know what you think.
I’ve uploaded another minor update to Pantalaimon for Ubuntu Touch. This release includes additional homeserver settings for http proxy and ssl verification. It also now has a global setting to update the log level to assist with troubleshooting.
I’ve spun up a new project to focus on getting an end-to-end encryption proxy for matrix up and running on Ubuntu Touch. This effort takes Pantalaimon, created by the matrix.org developers, and adds a service script along with a UI to manage the configuration and background process.
Today I’m putting Goober for Android officially into retirement status. I received a reminder email from Google this morning that updates to my app will soon require a newer target Android API level. Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal however the framework I selected when I began this effort is now pretty far out of date and requires significant amount of work to bring current. I am no willing to devote time developing an application for Android, an operating system I no longer use or even recommend.
Announcing the second pre-release (or re-release?) of the woodstock client library for pnut.io. This is my continuation of the work started by yukkuri_sinai in 2017. The project is alive and well at it’s new home on sr.ht and plan to continue active development going forward.
