@lucash_dev Exactly! Stop giving credit and recognition to the alarmists. Just because the other g-type stars use to turn into red giants, doesn't mean our sun will do that! Stop spreading fear! Sun will not obliterate the inner planets! The earth is safe! The nature knows best!

@[email protected] Do you realize that with this level of paranoia, you'll never notice when they actually do go after you one day? Just saying. and

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. (, , ).

@nolim1t This is the least creepy thing from amazon I've ever seen. If you've posted it without any context I would've thought it was some contrib/motion_tracking_example.py :D

@dilutionproof @AaronvanW Can I enable the old bloom filters and the new compact block filters at the same time?

@raul Let me put it this way. I run several bitcoin nodes and public electrum servers. I don't use any of them to check my day to day wallet balance, because it's still easier to ask some stranger on the internet then my own node. The core doesn't deserve all the blame though. Interoperability in the bitcoin world just suck.

@raul The main problem with running your own node is that it's resource intensive, and the only thing you can easily do with it is check the balance of a single wallet. If you want more, you have to feed all the data to another power-hungry software that will build it's own single purpose database. If you want even more, there's a problem. Talking to bitcoind from more apps using rpc & mq is not really tested, nor recommended. effort > benefit

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.

@sir "just use alpine" is just a rehash of "bitcoin solves this" meme. Not entirely truthful, not entirely applicable to everyone.

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.

Whoops.

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

@cjd Damn, I've been blocking people mentioning it, thinking it's some kind of new conspiracy theory.

@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.
