I was planning to spend my evening shit-posting on the birdsite until I saw @hannesm mention Iuventa and 3sat. After watching the documentary I really don’t feel like making pointless jokes on social media anymore...

This is a german Op-ed called “No summer fairytale” by a (Swiss) Weatherman who has been working and living in Germany for the past 20-ish years.

Translated lede:

“Germany is scared of climate change – and of ventilators. While the next climate catastrophe looms in the coming winter, the Government does nothing. Because they do not want to put off the many “Stupid”.”

#WhyIStayOnMastodon

It's one of the few places online that really feels genuine, it doesn't leave me feeling worse than when I logged on, and almost everyone I've interacted with has been pretty great. Mastodon is really based around communities of real people, not brands or shallow interests.

I need work. If you have use for software development in Python or C, on Linux or Debian, I'm available: short-term contracts, or part-time or full-time employment. I can do coding, and software architecture. I can work remotely. I reside in Finland, if that matters.

So for all the webmail stuff you have many 2FA options but what about smtp&imap? Is client certificates on a smartcard/hardware token what’s currently doable without having to patch the software stack or using/doing custom hardware?

@sajith yes, well, now that I know (too much?) TCP, I definitively am going to write my own stack -- the testsuite and validation is already there \o/

Going through my old records after quite some time, I have determined that I used to have equal parts good, comically bad and *meh* taste in music.

ETHZ is building a research computer called Enzian consisting of a Cavium ThunderX-1 and a large FPGA.

In the FAQ they are throwing some shade at blockchain and cryptocurrency people:
"Q. Can I use this for blockchain operations or cryptocurrency mining?
A. You are not our target audience for this platform."

Looks like public moaning and shaming worked: there are hints that Intel will disable Hyperthreading in future processors.
