Managed to build an Arm64 built of the beta signal desktop! If you feeling adventurous, help me with testing! cryptohub.nl/signal.deb

Been trying to get a build running for an arm64 signal-desktop. Slowly slowly inching forward, hating electron even more and more.

“security researchers say they have proven that the series of audible, metallic clicks made as a key penetrates a lock can now be deciphered by signal processing software to reveal the precise shape of the sequence of ridges on the key's shaft. Knowing this (the actual cut of your key), a working copy of it can then be three-dimensionally (3D) printed.”

I realized *just now* that with the coming of Signal Desktop and being able to call from it and to video call from it, we have a modern strong crypto client on free software phones like the PinePhone. The future is getting excited!

Did some CTF challenges, made some food, fell asleep on the couch, continued playing some more CTF. Oh and I also did some chores on this lovely summer day. Can’t believe tomorrow is Monday again :(

Saw this nice picture at the last chaos amsterdam meetup and thought i'd share it with the world.

What if the backup server was.... based outside of Macedonia.
