Number theory is full of stuff like this, as the old saying goes "the only branch of mathematics where you can explain the problem to a 8 year old child but the greatest mathematician on earth can't solve it" (or something like that)

@Seccour 👋 I check in occasionally but it seems pretty dead

@stevenroose this is untrue, I've been a part of the Haskell community for 10 years and it is quite active, and has lots if smart developers who care about software correctness.

@stevenroose it's possible, but I personally wouldn't run dotnet code on my server so I needed an alternative anyways.

At the start of the month I set out to build a lightning network Patreon alternative. After working a few weekends and holidays I finally have something working. Can't wait to upend the cartels and gatekeepers.

Stop using politically controlled social media, stop using politically controlled payment networks.

here's what you need to add to your nixos config to run spruned+clightning

going to add a bitcoind module next

nice, got spruned and clightning working as nixos modules

Huge opportunity missed; they didn't call it Voldemort's vision conference

bitcoin core code contributors need to step up their game on patch quality. There's a reason linux has such strict standards for patches. They're constrained by reviewers, not coders. Smaller, more logical patches with detailed descriptions is going to become more and more important going forward.

So many PRs have commits with no descriptions in them. I'm looking at right now. how do you even review this, there's no explanation at all, just vague descriptions.

@stick emailed you the patch, it's also at

let me know if that works, haven't updated the darwin hash yet.

@stick which version of nixpkgs are you on? I just packaged version 7 and could send you a patch for testing.

@stick nice! I maintain some trezor stuff in nixpkgs, happy to help if you have any questions!

@samourai_official is there somewhere I can download the apk directly? I don't have the play store on my phone.

I guess bitcoin is still trying to cross the early adopters to early majority chasm.
