@duckartes @402PaymentRequired well there may be exceptions, for example to address factual incorrectness—if the particular horse is not beaten to death yet

but in this case, naah. I think not just here but in general the bullies and harmful characters always get too much attention I'll leave it at that, boost stuff you like instead :)

BTW: if I know you in any way and you're interested in an account on x0f.org mastodon, feel free to ask for an invite !

@402PaymentRequired better to just ignore it, imo, no one cares about this crypto insider drama we have bigger fish to fry
a "hate retweet" is still a retweet


> Ian Levy, GCHQ’s Technical Director, recently posted on the Lawfare blog what GCHQ wants tech companies to do. Buried in a post full of justifications [...], Levy explained that GCHQ wants secure messaging services, like WhatsApp, Signal, Wire, and iMessage, to create deceitful user interfaces that hide who private messages are being sent to.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

Never thought about this before, but the #Firefox "Reader View" is a decent way to bypass some adblock detectors.

A sudden realization that you were in a desperate need of a better computer. #DOSGaming

[admin] mastodon upgrade to v2.6.3 successful

@niconiconi you might want to file an issue for that; `lightningd` shouldn't compile against an incompatible version of secp256k1, not compile successfully and crash later. But good that you found the cause.

Most censorship techniques adopted by ISPs around the world are subtle, so it can be hard to distinguish intentional government censorship from transient network failures or other issues.

Transparency is essential.

OONI's dataset is probably the largest publicly-available resource on internet censorship to date:

That never occurred to me at least; normally you'd be able to close the channels and get your coins back

But theoretically, yes: lightning protocol has some 'punishment' that kicks in if a node detects its peer's channels is tampered with, which could trigger in the case of data corruption

Finally going to merge Python3 support into the master branch of Joinmarket today :)

There should be a new release shortly that includes that, and coincurve (which will just make the secp256k1 binding a bit more reliable in terms of install, it's better maintained), and a few other fixes.

I'm also noting (being a relatively active user) that coinjoins are significantly more reliable after the random_under_max choosing algo introduced in 0.4. Yg bot seems to average about 20 txs/day (low fees).

FOSS is free as in toilet

Excellent statement, absolutely true

btw the only reason tumblr is removing porn is because apple blocked their app for nsfw content. if you were still on the fence about whether or not walled gardens have a negative effect on free speech

--to troubleshooting your problem.

"the docs suck! nothing works!" will usually not motivate anyone to spend time for your sake.

"I am trying to get <X> to do <Y> but it is freezing up|throwing <ERROR>; I tried <APPROACH1-3> but no luck. Any ideas?", however, often will.

Wow the FOSDEM room lineup looks pretty great this year: fosdem.org/2019/news/2018-10-1

Decentralized Internet and Privacy?
Microkernels and Component-based OS?
Minimalistic Languages?
CAD and Open Hardware?

That's my kind of jam right there

Most modern search engines will not even /consider/ the possibility that I want what I asked for. Surely I misspoke. Surely those characters can't belong that that order, those words in the grammar, those ideas in that query. Wouldn't I like a nice cup of tea?
