Incredible to see the total lack of simple comprehension on the part of people speculating about the FBI seizure of the ransomware coins. None of them should be anywhere near any advice-giving, any recommendations, any financial suggestions, whatsoever, ever.

Is there some way of only seeing subscribed users and subscribed domains..? All that other crap seems superfluous..

Unbelieveable. DOGE has been broken for how long now? And nobody even fucking noticed.

I'm watching literally one dude fix the Dogecoin network right now, single-handedly. Amazing..

Was in one of the larger banks here in Canada the other day and struck up a conversation with one of their FP type staff while waiting for a teller. At some point she turned the topic to Bitcoin (sigh) and after I asked her whether the bank was looking at it, she tells me, "We're pretty much going to be forced into it soon.."

Brutal, I said. Don't be bullied by FOMO'ers who can't be arsed to do it properly.

wtf.

It's completely made my day today to learn that Melvin Capital and Citron Capital(?) likely closed out their naked, massively rehypothecated shorts with losses in the billions.

@timp Hey is the other mastodon-dot-social timp also you

@admin Hey thanks for the hidden service! Very nice man. Does Let's Encrypt do hidden services? If not, does the server require a TLS cert? Anyway thanks.

Huh. Toots and Replies from some other instances aren't showing up in the timelines. @BTCKitty appears to have an empty timeline when looking at it locally. Still connecting via Tor here.

if you're using firefox—

- open about:config
- toggle app.normandy.enabled to false

this disables the "random" experiments that mozilla performs on you
(see wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Shiel and jeffersonscher.com/sumo/shield for a list)

don't know if this could potentially be targeted to remotely control someone's browser, but I don't like it
