Seems I haven't recovered my follows from x0f.org accounts yet since the glitch from some time ago 😢. I suspect mine's not the only bitcoinhackers.org account this has happened to?

@orionwl would you mind boosting this so people on your instance can re-follow any bitcoinhackers they are interested in?

Every time I make an on-chain payment to a merchant I'm reminded of how problematic the UI is for payments that can take 20-60 seconds to even be *recognized*, let alone confirmed. Different web interfaces work differently but it's never actually intuitive.

just pre-ordered a Librem 5 phone 😀 , too bad it'll only ship in 6 months or so

is anyone still using the binaries for 32-bit x86 linux?
