Dunno, or maybe even without the CW. I guess talking about code is in general neutral? What does the think?

Not sure how long I'm going to keep it up, but let's do some posting under the “coding” CW. About thing I do for work (and fun sometimes) which are Open Source.

Peertube, an ActivityPub based alternative to YouTube, is running a crowdfunding campaign

Comes at an important time, with YouTube blocking legitimate videos on (incorrect) copyright grounds, such as MIT's OpenCourseWare videos and the Blender Foundation's videos

This is very important:

"Article 13 of the Copyright Directive will force internet platforms (social networks, video sites, image hosts, etc.) to install upload filters to monitor all user uploads for copyrighted content, including in images – and thus block most memes, which are usually based on copyrighted images.


It will come down to every single vote. (...) The NGO EDRi has made a list of key swing votes:

This will affect .

"The Lunar Orbiters never returned to Earth with the imagery. Instead, the Orbiter developed the 70mm film (yes film) and then raster scanned the negatives with a 5 micron spot (200 lines/mm resolution) and beamed the data back to Earth using lossless analog compression"

Lol remember when I covered E3 one year and _everyone_ except my editor regretted it

Every country out there should follow suit, and implement the Happy Monday System:


“However, in a Marxist revolution, the proletariat will come together to overthrow the bourgeoisie and ultimately, win the class conflict by taking control over their work, or striking. And if such a revolution occured in Brunt’s classroom, his students would overthrow him as a teacher — and the principal, the superintendent, and so on.”

Note that I just want it to save the data in some way to files on disk, for later retrieval, and I won't be having more than half a dozen machines sending data to it. I don't mind the storage format as long as there is no need to run a separate database process and it's possible to retrieve the data back.

Question: does the fediverse know whether a small/simple Open Source daemon for ingesting and storing data from statsd/statsite exists? Something like RRDTool, but that gets the data using the statsd protocol and has lightweight dependencies — which means it's written in something that compiles to native code.

Google has this annyoing internal engineering ethos of "Google knows better" wherein they discard a whole bunch of established industry practices in favor of their own stupid ideas

So after a couple meetings and going through more of the links, including the GPG response, etc.

My thoughts on the #efail vuln:

1) The core requirement is that an attacker needs to get ahold of an encrypted email first. This is axiomatic. This is the thing that they need to decrypt.

The attacker can do either by:
a) Sniffing the encrypted email in transit
b) Stealing the encrypted email at rest.
