Pinned toot

, mon tuto complet pour installer Linux, Bitcoin Core et LND sur un ordinateur qui ne vous sert plus est bien avancé : 👉

C'est encore un travail en cours que je vais améliorer par la suite, toutes les remarques sont les bienvenues.

Plutôt qu'un tigre dans votre moteur, mettez un ratel dans votre vieux portable pourri !

Came to that article from The Intercept from which was linked in the article from De Correspondent.

"No Google data is used." claims Bowden from Sidewalk Labs
Further down the article:
"data is sourced from 'Android Phones and Google apps.'" and "based off of Google data."
Who would've thought Google is lying ...

Relevance for this thread:
'Smart Cities' is better marketing.

If you're not careful like Barcelona & Amsterdam, you'll get your panopticon.

A couple things I saw and thought "Mastodon will love this":

- Alias, a 3D-printed "parasite" that sits on top of your Amazon Echo or Google Home, feeding white noise into its mic until you say the wake word:

- The adminbook, a wonderfully ugly design for the ideal sysadmin notebook:

A new blog post about the security of Schnorr signatures.

There's probably a strong inverse correlation between how much effort I put into these posts and how many people read them :) But, you might find the slightly eccentric first few sections interesting, at least :)

@waxwing You jest, but I think it's interesting that even if Bitcoin were to be broken in the way you describe (secp256k1's use of SHA256), I think private keys would continue to have their *completely-subjective* value as something like Tim Ruffing's QC bypass upgrade could be used for anyone who hadn't engaged in address reuse (or who was unlucky to have their tx in the mempool when the flaw started being exploited):

@BugmanExtraordinaire @nickcook its quite easy to pick out ideal times to sell (and buy) in retrospect, but that misses the point of what I think @nickcook is saying.
This old meme puts it well-- excuse me for reposting but I don't think its graced mastadon with its presence yet:

@Shekelcoin it's dumb. Despite Dashjr's claims, it won't actually make nodes easier to run until hardware has improved significantly, which is probably at least five years away and possibly ten or more. Realistic work to improve node usability in the short term can be done without consensus changes, and devs like Jonas Schnelli have already been quietly working on that while Dashjr needlessly confuses people on birdsite.

I just realised something ironic; the switch to the language "crypto" instead of "Bitcoin" was somehow a result of the deep seated dislike ordinary people have of the kind of seriousness/responsibility involved in actually using a *crypto*currency (that's to say something using cryptographic verification to replace trust). People intuitively know Bitcoin is like that, and don't want it; they want the fantasy of a trusted system giving the same result.

Met these guys briefly a couple of years ago. Both very interesting characters, although I don't agree with some of their perspectives. The interview is about what cryptoanarchy actually means, especially nowadays:

Just finished 2nd bitcoin workshop, got a bunch of noobs installing Electrum personal server on top of Bitcoin Core and made them build a bitcoin 1st class stack. Now I'll let them play for some time on the regtest and testnet before going on mainnet.
I try to shill them your videos @402PaymentRequired , at least one of them already knew about it

So, you have 18-21 year old running a gigantic radio transmitter and blasting sick death and black #metal on one block, and bored inmates next door with access to time, the radio, and the postal system.

That leads to these 18-21 year old uni students receiving letters of all kinds requesting music, critiquing their selection, insulting them, threatening them, etc
