I'm starting to like Greta Thunberg more and more.
Other people constantly want to make it about her and what she has to say and she consistently pushes back on that.

"I don't want you to listen to me, I want you to listen to the scientists. And take action" πŸ’― πŸ’― πŸ’―
And then submits the IPCC report to the congressional records as her testimony πŸ‘Œ

Looks like the US gov still hasn't heard of the Streisand effect :-P

RT @Snowden@twitter.com:
"The government of the United States has just announced a lawsuit over my memoir, which was just released today worldwide. This is the book the government does not want you to read: 'Permanent Record'"

(ofc I'm not including a link to amazon)

Do I understand it correctly that was ousted because he did what he always does? Mince on the precise definition of words.

I'm quite aware that once again he showed his lack of empathy and that more then once made me cringe (hard). I do think that's problematic. He's also far from a likeable person. But AFAIK that's not different then say 10+ years ago.
Only this time the SJW mob 'won'.

In 2010, Eben Moglen made a bold claim:

"Mr. Zuckerberg has attained an unenviable record: he has done more harm to the human race than anybody else his age."

And people laughed.

But it turned out to be a prophetic claim.

I spoke to Julian at the weekend. His psychological torture is unabated. He remains isolated in his small cell, mostly 23 hours a day, denied proper exercise. He has lost more weight. Although 'approved', phone calls to his parents are still not possible. Britain 2019.

Does anyone (here) have experience with Liberapay (liberapay.com/)?

@joeyh Anything I need to be aware of when switching from Patreon?

And then systemd came along.
Lets implement a timer so programs can gracefully shutdown.
Sounds good.
Oh, and when the timer is up, we'll just extend the timer ... indefinitely.
Wait, what?!?
Lets implement sth that hard kills it all after you press Ctl+Alt+Del 7 times in 2 seconds.
Great
Just don't kill it too hard πŸ˜–

Fuck systemd.

At least REISUB still works.

PSA: I am no longer interested in bitcoin. If you followed me for bitcoin related things, feel free to unfollow/mute/block me.

Quite a number of my followers are from @bitcoinhackers.org, but also from other domains I know them through bitcoin, so it feels dishonest from me not to disclose that.
With this message I hope to rectify that.

I completely fucked up in my previous attempt to communicate that. Sorry about that.

@FreePietje The general rule in free software is that, if you really want something, you have to do it yourself. Complaining about other people's priorities rarely gets you anywhere. If you want to see X, implement it yourself and prove to everyone that it's better.

In this case, that means setting up hosting for Bitcoin Core dev, proving that it's maintainable, showing that it will receive the same level of contributions, and demonstrating that it integrates with useful tools like CI.

Why I've lost almost all interest in :

Please tell me where the difference is between someone not leaving FB or any other privacy violating company "because it's convenient" and bitcoin core staying on GitHub "because it's convenient"?

I've always considered a complete bullshit argument, but I thought that with bitcoin the incentives were aligned? So it shouldn't be a problem to fund self-hosting and a security team, right?

Glad I moved back to Free Software where principles matter.

@FreePietje All it was is to change to --tor.v3 in the /etc/systemd/system/lnd.service
file. It works without problems on 2 nodes of mine.
This was discussed before and will suggest to upgrade here: github.com/rootzoll/raspiblitz
