So full-disk encryption on a Linux laptop is basically bullshit, isn’t it?
*gasps from the audience* *angry shouting*
Lock your computer: unencrypted
Hand your locked/sleeping/suspended computer to a customs agent or leave it unattended at a cafe: it’s unencrypted.
And we call this secure.
So I guess that’s the first thing to fix before we can recommend these devices to everyday people instead of Macs (see FileVault for a proper implementation).
Yesterday there were special conditions on UHF bands affecting the free PMR446 band. Many 300+ km QSOs were made, several over 400 km and there was one from Czech republic to Hungary which was first ever and it will attack the world record for PMR446, which is limited to integrated antenna, 0.5W and FM modulation. I'm glad I organized the event and made people go to hills in the middle of the week!

Is there a way to run Lightning node on Raspberry Pi Zero? Theoretically it shouldn't need the resources for a full node, right? It could be interesting to have one to provide liquidity with Lightning Pool and thus stack some additional sats...
You can fit full #Bitcoin monetary policy in a single toot:
CAmount GetBlockSubsidy(int nHeight, const Consensus::Params& consensusParams)
int halvings = nHeight / consensusParams.nSubsidyHalvingInterval;
if (halvings >= 64) return 0;
CAmount nSubsidy = 50 * COIN;
nSubsidy >>= halvings;
