It feels like an unpopular opinion, but liking things is more fun than hating things, and talking about things you like will make you feel better about life than talking about things you hate.

Last Sunday the UK/US/CA/AU/NZ/IN/JP govts issued a statement asking tech companies to add backdoors into E2E encryption. This is a big deal: unfortunately *backdoors do not work*. Read about our alternative: combating abuse via decentralised reputation.🔒 matrix.org/blog/2020/10/19/com

@sneak have you heard the good news about ?😂​

The GitHub API:

access-control-allow-origin: *


Assigning DNS names to WiFi devices on the is pretty nice - but now it's consistently returning an 'old' IP :/

The fritzbox UI already shows the 'new' IP... even when I change the name, so it's not just a DNS cache thing.

I guess I shouldn't picked a properly open source option after all (?), that way I'd have some chance of diagnosing and fixing the issue, now I'm just out of luck. Probably restarting the device will work, but meh.

Sorry for boasting, but I can't deny sitting at #1 on HackerNews does kinda feel good 😂

Implemented a drag-and-drop rule editor, similar to the one in "Desert of the Real".

Here I'm dragging patterns and references to rules from the top menu into slots of the first rules.

Each rule has slots for each quadrant and one fallback pattern (on the left) that's used when the squares get too small.

🤦‍♀️ are you kidding me?

IEC, ISO and ITU celebrate World Standards Day on 2020-10-14, but ANSI celebrates the same day a week later.

re: Covid - scientist study about virus lifespan 

@solene thanks for sharing!

IIRC we've seen similar studies in the past where the virus was 'alive' for long periods, which was a bit misleading since it was no longer infectious at that point.

This time it's more serious: the article says "at 20 °C, infectious SARS-CoV-2 virus was still detectable after 28 days post inoculation".

I forgot that I really like creating presets for synth. I'll do more of this in the future. And by the way, I already have a preset pack for the helm synthsiser. It's free and you can get it here:

This year with even more overkill!

I can now control my central heating via local wifi with the -based 2019 conference badge.

I used to have a plain esp32 dev board, but wanted to diagnose connectivity problems via the eink display.

@CobaltVelvet I'm not sure I understand - are you saying you feel "pr welcome" is not a respectful answer to a feature request on a FLOSS project? Can you suggest one that would be more respectful?

I like it when FLOSS issue/todo/work trackers are open for ideas and requests. Of course we cannot expect the existing workers on the project to implement each and every idea - just as we cannot expect the person who brought it up to take it on themselves. As a maintainer, expressing that you would like the feature to be implemented, but that you will likely not be working on it yourself (which is what "pr welcome" means to me) seems pretty reasonable?

I understand that this has the undesirable effect that features that are interesting to a group that lacks overlap with the group of maintainers of that project are less likely to be worked on. I don't see how to 'fix' that though, other than to invite people from such groups to join the 'work group'...

Have I ever talked about how awesome #OsmAnd is?

Here we have a map app that draws maps from vector data in real time, and has quality routing and many other features.

It still runs on an Android 4.4 device with 512 MB of memory, and can calculate routes for several 100 km on a fairly complex road network without crashing.

It is possible, people!
