lightning node information 

i've had to shut down all channels to my old lightning node due to a database inconsistency, if you want, you can connect to the new one:

Hills seem bad.
People complain about the struggle of going up hill.
It is also considered bad when things "go down hill"
And hills are places on which people choose to die.

Avoid hills, just go around.

i replaced the CPU fan in my old desktop and it makes so much difference! the previous fan was worn out and full of dust that was increasingly hard to remove
after replacing it the computer is completely silent, even with make -j6 workloads, and seems faster (no more throttling?)

i just manually patched my termcap database on FreeBSD to add tmux-256color, and ran cap_mkdb to regenerate the .db, it's somewhat scary but seems to have worked

a new version of rust-clightning-rpc, 0.2.0, was released with better support for c-lightning 0.8 and up
github.com/laanwj/rust-clightn

A step towards realising the idea of (a) having an RPC API for Joinmarket and (b) having alternative clients (this one written in Angular) to act as a 'control centre' switching on and off services (maker, taker, snicker, whatever) and with a richer UI to display information to the user, plus easier cross platform binary distribution. See github.com/JoinMarket-Org/jmco and github.com/JoinMarket-Org/join

Only a prototype. I wonder if anyone is interested in helping build out the UI with Angular?

is there a way in c-lightning to find out when a peer was last seen online ?

We have some testnet bots running on a testnet pit (darkscience, hackint ie the default servers, configure `network=testnet` in BLOCKCHAIN section of config) for the bech32 Joinmarket orderbook. This will not be in a release for a while, but these tests will be very helpful. You'll need to be running this PR: github.com/JoinMarket-Org/join

I've been itching to get a 0.7.0 release out with Payjoin and backend bitcoin improvements, waiting on final touches to Qt part of Payjoin (see #659).

Had an SSD failure today, saved everything I care about so no biggy. Was a nov/dec 2019 model. Hearing a lot of buzz about failing SSDs, rumor is someone unloaded all of their QC-fail inventory around the turn of 2020. Be careful, backup your data.

Software engineers are constantly subjected to the same conundrum Blaise Pascal faced when he wrote, “I would have written a shorter letter, but I didn’t have the time.”

What fascinates me about seemingly retro tech is the dream of having these tools be feasible in the human realm. People like us can use them and make them, without having to form a company, without business plans and lawyers and project managers. The web browser project is so big, so monstrous, it needs hundreds of people to get right, to implement all the features, because we kept adding them and adding them, letting corporations out-organize us.

did anyone ever do remote syslog over Tor onion service? preferably with systemd? if so, any pointers or suggestions?

has anyone here ever used the bitcoind wallet option -zapwallettxes?
there is discussion of (re)moving it

i bumped the bounty for my etnaviv bug to 1000 EUR. maybe someone can relieve my pain? gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/me

TIL vim (also neovim) has a preference for double spaces after a period, while re-formatting, this can be disabled by setting 'nojoinspaces'
