it's surprising how noticeable the reduced latency of direct fiber internet versus coax cable (Docsis?) is, even in normal web browsing

pretty sure a secp256k1 FPGA implementation could be done in a similar way, with less gate usage than the zcash-fpga one (which i'm still porting to amaranth hdl)

an interesting in-depth write-up about the design of the Curve25519 elliptic curve engine in the betrusted (as implemented on FPGA)

this was answered on birdsite, it's been confirmed from kernel sources that this is the default there

can anyone who knows more about ppc64 linux please comment on this: is the stack by default non-executable on that platform? (so having GNU_STACK hint is unnecessary)

TIL that BIP86 exists (equivalent of BIP49 and BIP84 for segwit). This stuff should shortly become less relevant as I understand (due to use of descriptors), but this is the taproot single key HD derivation standard.

Finally revisiting this project. Waiting on some new capacitive touch sensors to try, so I thought I'd write a new pattern to take advantage of the rings.
I mapped all the "connections" between rings, randomly switch to a new ring & change direction.

EU: All messenger services should be required to interoperate.

Also EU: We will fund opensource software, like e.g. messenger clients.

Also EU: All messengers are now required to scan messages for unwanted content locally, before encryption, and notify the gooberment of such communicaton.

Do they even realize that they literally have to make FOSS illegal if they want people to not be able to choose clients that don't spy on them (regardless of message transport)? The answer, of course, is no.

this use was okay imo, but the fact that possibility exists to shut down a country's agricultural capacity with the push of a button is kind of scary

@loke I agree that "a better social network" probably means different things to different people. I think that's actually an opportunity to have different systems and different communities that can interact via ActivityPub but don't have to.

The challenge, I guess, is to figure out effective ways (ie. that work for small communities / instances) to support or enforce (within their boundaries) their idea of how interactions should happen (moderation, blocking, but also highlighting etc.) @zacchiro

is there a way to make mastodon stop constantly sending mails to me about new trending topics/posts/hashtags to allow?

i trust the people on this server to not abuse that and don't really want to babysit that all the time
