Thunder Badger, mon guide pour installer son propre nœud Bitcoin et Lightning, a désormais son propre repo :
À l'origine un fork des super guides de Stadicus, mais nos versions commencent à diverger sérieusement et cela devenait difficile à maintenir.
Vous êtes libres de l'utiliser, le copier, le modifier ou de faire ce que vous voulez avec sans me demander l'autorisation (tant que vous conservez la licence attachée et que vous vous ne l'appropriez pas)

Another Opus we're working on in c-lightning is dual-funding, so let's talk about that! This is Lisa's work, but I've been following along, and pushing to make it more general.

Today, you connect to a lightning node and open a channel, and you put all the funds in. This is simple, but it'd be better if you could both co-operate to construct a tx, especially if you could do it with multiple peers at once. This requires a generic coop construction protocol, which was fun to write...

As always: If anyone want to open a LN channel to me or the reverse, hit me up !

It goes without saying you should be following @rusty on here....

Finally tipping my toes into Rust, out of necessity

@Sosthene @stevenroose so, the printed seed phrase mixed into weird sentences was a success for xmas: out of 4 letters sent, 2 persons showed clear interest. two weeks after one person manage to decode the seed phrase and load it into his very first wallet :)

it was pretty funny preparing these letters and it would deserve a small script to make it easy to offer satoshis to newbies!
I know what to do before next :)

Was implemented exactly as stated in the whitepaper? How did terminology and bitcoin's implementation change over time from what Satoshi first published? See this by David Harding @hrdng

@verretor @Gargron @kekcoin Freedom of speech is freedom to ridicule. I for one am happy to be ridiculed if it means my own individual speech isn't silenced across the internet.

Due to an implementation bug, v3 onion services were experiencing instability earlier today.

A bug fix is on the way.

Everything else in Tor works fine even when the consensus is a few hours old, and v3 onion services should too.

I couldn't log in for last week or so (issue with Firefox), I come back here and shit! I had more follow notifications in the last few days than the last 2 years.

Hope all of you will stick here this time, sure it's a bit less entertaining than Twitter, but you'll learn more, and you might soon not have the possibility to go back there anyway

So to be fair he doesn't say that restaurants "have" to close doors like it's a program or something, it's just some kind of assessment of the damage lockdowns could make, but this prediction is very vague ("several industry voices") and he doesn't provide any source. I still think this is weird to come up with this back in May where it wasn't clear at all (at least for me) that lockdowns will continue up to the next winter.

I've seen recently a lot of people saying that according to the Great Reset "75% of restaurants will have to close doors".
I've found the origin of this quote, and it's not exactly what he's saying: "In France and the UK,
several industry voices estimate that up to 75% of independent
restaurants might not survive the lockdowns and subsequent
social-distancing measures. The large chains and fast-food giants

Macron on a recent itw: “During the crisis, what we did was not a deprivation of freedoms. We have freely and collectively agreed to reduce the things we can do in order to protect others ”

That amount of gaslighting is unbelievable, almost the same moment a law is being proposed that basically takes all the temporary, emergency measures of this year and turns it into full fledged permanent law. That's usually how states of emergency end, they just become the new normal.

Il n'y aura plus de drone en manifestation : le Conseil d'État vient de les interdire à Paris et de poser des conditions qui remettent largement en cause leur tentative d'autorisation dans la #PPLSécuritéGlobale.

Victoire totale. Passez de bonnes fêtes <3

This looks interesting, I wonder the density of nodes that would be required to have a decent coverage in urban areas

... but so far he doesn't hint at any hypocrisy: the threat of the disease itself is really *that* big, and the changes governments will impose are necessary and justified by this threat. Or maybe he sees it more as an opportunity, as he can't hide his excitement: "You get the point: we should take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to reimagine our world, in a bid to make it a better and more resilient one as it emerges on the other side of this crisis.")
