@wintervilleldn the link for local residents tickets for the ice skating rink doesn't work so well. I'm taken to a seetickets page where I can't buy tickets. Tried in a private browser window as well, but same issue: https://winterville.seetickets.com/event/ice-rink/clapham-common-london/1263351?OfferCode=RESIDENT&a...

Does anyone else keep their own knowledge wiki?

I've had a private installation of dokuwiki for years, but didn't use it for a large chunk of time. Within the last year, I've started using it again, and I really like it. This thread on lobste.rs has some great comments on the benefits of keeping one, and even more so, on making it public. Not sure I'm doing the public thing yet, but I'm definitely using it more and more.

The great thing about dokuwiki is, that it's just txt files underneath, so you can read and edit them with a text editor as well, if you prefer.

I'm using latest indigenous release with Known (0.9.9-a). I have a number of syndication targets setup: github, flickr, mastodon, twitter. I used to be able to syndicate to those, but maybe around 1+ month ago (I don't recall precisely), the checkboxes disappeared, and when I try create a piece of content, I get the following error message in a toast:

"Error parsing syndication targets: Value github::access_token at 0 of type java.lang.String cannot be converted to JSONObject"

To check whether it is an issue with the syndication targets, I tried loading up Quill, which shows the syndication targets just fine. Can I provide you with any details that can help verify if this is an Indigenous issue, or not?

Totally agree about the community feel. I used to spend a lot of time on Usenet in the late 90s, early 00s, and to me the movement reminds me of the kind of connections I made there. Lose relations, tightly coupled to an idea or a theme. I used to participate in a Danish usenet group for Macintosh/Apple heads. It was great, met a lot of people IRL, some I still have occasional contact with today.
