MastoCity

An experiment in shared virtual space.

I've been digging through Diaspora talk on the group feature that there's still zero progress on.

That's a lot of people boasting 100+ communities that requires a group feature, over the last 6 years.
It's a wonder that there's apparently a big need (that I also have and have talked about in the last couple of months on Mastodon)
and still, not one project have made serious attempts at a group feature to rival facebook. Not even hubzilla?!

I just had a two part idea for a distributed

1) Everyone has a single block that is theirs, controlled by a public/private key pair. Your block's position in the city is changeable, but has to be signed by at least one neighbor*, and to avoid collisions, you should get all your neighbors to verify your position.
All this would be taken care of by the software hosting your block (can be web, can be local).

*) The city is a grid, so your neighbors are the 8 blocks around yours.

Hypothetically, if I'm building a web app as a program, and I want this web app to require a well formed and filled config-file, and it's missing or mangled.

Would it be bad to have the program serve a static HTML page with a description of the missing parts ("missing config file" / "missing [XYZ_VALUE] in config file") and a link to documentation?
That is, instead of anything you'd otherwise expect a well configured version of the program to do.

Any security considerations?

I fear my project is dying a slow death.
I don't have time right now and my missing expertise in writing stuff like that is diminishing my motivation and enthusiasm for the project.

Strings

A tool I made while learning the basics of bass guitar, and have since expanded upon. It is an interactive diagram of where the notes, scales and chords are on guitars, ukulele and piano.

Rubiks Helper

A simple tool I made for a friend to help him solve the last face of a Rubik's Cube. The tool uses Singmaster notation.
