Pinned toot

New way to help fund my work, for the folks who are boycotting Patreon but would still prefer to contribute in fiat currency.

(GitHub also *doesn't* have Patreon's 10% fee, and will even match contributions for a while!)

Since apparently @[email protected] intends to abandon the old Core PPA (or already has?), I've created a new one here for people who still prefer this method of builds/packaging:

So this apparently would mean everyone with any CPU is therefore liable for paying taxes on 1800 BTC per day of income...

Actually, even if you *don't* have a CPU I guess... If not having software doesn't matter, why would not having a CPU? 🤦‍♂️

That is to say, future mined bitcoins are all anyone-can-spend until mined. Therefore, every 10 minutes, everyone with any CPU *could hypothetically* be spending those bitcoins. Whether or not such a person is mining is irrelevant based on the IRS guidance's reasoning.

Since the considers airdrops to be "received" the moment you have the *ability* to get them... does that mean since everyone with a CPU (including smartphones) *could* be mining cryptocurrencies, everyone has a tax liability for hypothetical mining profits? 🤔😰

Hmm, that was $20 in the 18th century, or 20 × 321.25 grains of silver. So you may want to use silver instead? (Valued about $235 today)

Silver is well-known for having medical value, so I wonder if it would actually be safe to implant somewhere...

Note this is not intended as a very serious suggestion.

Obviously your rights are worth more than $20 (I would say depriving you of them *inherently* makes the case criminal in nature!).

And considering how CPS act illegally anyway, they'd probably disregard

(That being said, if there's a non-invasive and reversible-only-by-you way to do it, it can't hurt to prepare just in case and try it if CPS attempts to attack your family...)

I wonder if there's a way to explicitly tie $21 to your children.

Would one need to surgically implant a few paper bills? Can that be done without medical risk?

Is there a less-invasive approach? Maybe setting up a legal entity in the child's benefit or something?

According to US "Child Protective Services", you have no right to a trial by jury or to remain silent because they're removing your parental rights without filing criminal charges.

Note you have the right to a trial by jury for civil cases >$20.

Having issues with updating the Ubuntu PPA, and Gentoo's added some new hurdles to work through, so those are delayed for the moment.

Most notable new feature (for GUI users) is an error if you try to send to an address you've already paid before.

It can be overridden, but hopefully helps informed users avoid accidentally doing so, and explains the situation to new users who aren't aware it's a bad idea.

Ok Mastodon, HOW do I actually start a DM with someone???

@[email protected] Your employees and judiciary are breaking up families with an assumption of guilt and no evidence, much less proof. Uphold the constitution like you took an oath to, and put these kidnappers in jail!

A right is something which you can legitimately defend with violence.

If you're unable to use violence, you effectively have no rights.

By nominating absolutely absurd candidates, the are sending Trump the message he can do whatever evil he wants (like red flag laws) and still win reelection.

The only way out of this race to the bottom is for BOTH parties to start nominating decent people.

Despite their claims, @[email protected]'s hosted mining services are absolutely a centralisation risk, just like any other hosted mining.

If you're going to buy hosted mining anyway, pick a small-hashrate company to provide it, but don't fool yourself into thinking it's comparable to actually mining yourself.

(BetterHash only helps when you physically control the hardware.)
