I wanna imagine somewhere in an alternate universe there is this guy speaking at the #CCC and he’s completely stoned out of his mind, and he’s like:
The thing about BGP is when the routers can’t reach the source, because, you know, at this point the whole thing’s a big fuckin’ loop, instead of doing the obvious sane thing and just keeping the last record, for some reason, they basically just panic and withdraw everything.

And then the wave of laughter crosses the audience. #facebook

Hey, @elementary , where do I report a bug when my laptop display brightness is randomly changing in Odin live session? One of the few things keeping me from upgrading.

"At elementary, we tend to avoid making changes for the sake of change. We’re very skeptical about design trends, and do our best to create things that feel a bit more “evergreen.” After all, “Good design is long lasting” and this allows us to focus more on refining than constantly reinventing."

On the same day I found a new planned obsolescence video...

@lizard @htimsxela I think LND only supports RBF and CPFP for regular onchain payments. You can't RBF a channel open because that changes its txid, which is used in the presigned refund transaction needed in case your channel counterparty becomes non-cooperative before you handle even a single LN payment. You can't CPFP a channel open without your channel counterparty since a channel open is a deposit into a 2-of-2 address.

Bitcoin critics are the 8yo version of Critics. They just start saying stuff they don’t understand and get follows for it.

Cryptocurrency is literally like an eight-year-old's concept of an evil businessman. He just plugs his pollution machine in and gets money for it. It doesn't make anything, it just. Pollutes. And makes money. Like a fucking Captain Planet villain

"my laundry machine uses gigabytes of traffic every day" is another one of those fun things we can say now that we live in The Future™


On the other hand, after checking the open issues on github, I'm not sure I want to join... These are not the bugs you expect from the app that's handling money...

Please do not use 1.9.0 but use the just released 1.9.1. There is a severe bug in 1.9.0 which was found yesterday. 1.8 versions are safe. Details will follow today. (, , ).

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.

You gotta love these "free speech, but not really" folks.

Either you moderate your content, and that's ok, or you don't, which is also ok
But please don't pretend to act like a free speech platform when you're not.

Thanks to #FreeSoftware developers, the German #CoronaWarnApp for tracing #COVID19 risk contacts is available on @fdroidorg without any Google dependencies. This not only fosters software freedom, but also sets the ground for innovative features.

Funny thing is that people assume that tracking only happens over the web, in their browsers.

While Microsoft and company have been doing it for ages in their operating systems and office suites, many didn't think that some of the console tools they use did the same.


Here is why I am very hesitant about adopting new and flashy systems. You can't trust them.

@alex Hey, you develop a mastodon frontend alternative! That's pretty awesome. I've always wanted to host my own fedi instance, but mastodon installation guide is too intimidating for a hobby project. Pleroma + Soapbox looks easy enough. I might give it a try.

The youtube-dl team backed down, they removed functionality necessary for it to access some videos.
I'm not faulting them, maybe they live in a repressive country where their lives are under threat, they don't owe it to us.
But yesterday youtube-dl was accessible everywhere BUT Github, today partial-youtube-dl is accessible on Github, and from now on the main developed branch will be partial-youtube-dl. That's it, the boogiemen won.
