Okay there's something really cool I've just learned. If you are continuously recording air pressure e.g. as part of your home automation setup or a weather station then you should really check the data of the last 24h.
You should be able to spot the pressure wave from the volcanic explosion in Tonga earlier today.
It reached my setup in Kaiserslautern at about 20:30.
Imagine spending ONE DAY in the "British Guantanamo", the max-security prison of Belmarsh in London, among violent criminals.
Now imagine spending ONE THOUSAND DAYS there.
Imagine, that as a publisher many times celebrated for your work (https://challengepower.info/assange_s_awards_and_recognition), you are not even charged.
You are waiting for extradition to the US where you face up to 175y in super-max.
You revealed war crimes involving the unaccounted death of dozen thousands of people.
We made exciting progress in our work towards OpenPGP card support in Sequoia. Two weeks ago, we extended our CI system to run a test suite against a set of physical OpenPGP cards:
https://sequoia-pgp.org/blog/2021/12/20/202112-openpgp-card-ci/ "Towards OpenPGP Card Support in Sequoia".
(With this, our CI system now makes use of the three devices that @nitrokey donated for this purpose - thanks again!)
Mother. Fucker. Remember those CCPA scam emails (I wrote about at https://blog.freeradical.zone/post/ccpa-scam-2021-12/)? Well, if you got one, turns out you were the unwitting participant in a human subject research study by Princeton University (see https://privacystudy.cs.princeton.edu).
If you lost any sleep or money dealing with this, they're the ones who owe it to you.
I just published 0.1.0 releases of the low-level "openpgp-card" crate and its backends: https://crates.io/search?q=openpgp-card
(This will hopefully mark a slowdown in changes to the API of these crates)
Also, the new 0.0.2 release of "openpgp-card-tools" supports pinpads on card readers.
If you want to explore new Rust-based tools to configure OpenPGP cards, have a look!
Next: more work on the high-level "openpgp-card-sequoia" crate, which will be the recommended API for most users of these libraries.
What's going on with Sequoia? Thanks to NLNet (@NGIZero), there is now a nice series of short presentations by the Sequoia team about what we are working on! Learn about Sequoia's past, present and future (Neal Walfield), TPM support (Wiktor Kwapisiewicz, @wiktor), sq, our command-line tool (Lars Wirzenius, @liw), the gpg chameleon, our gpg replacement (Justus Winter), and OpenPGP CA (Heiko Schaefer, @hko).
I recently announced that Sequoia has a web of trust implementation. Today, I piblished the first version of a specification. Incredibly neither PGP nor GnuPG specifies how they implement WoT! My document tries to address all of the details and includes implementation advice (an efficient implementation is non-obvious, but happily not complicated). #pgp https://sequoia-pgp.gitlab.io/sequoia-wot/
"From 2015 to 2019, #Iceland ran the world's largest trial of a shorter working week. An analysis of the results was finally published this week, and surprise! Everyone was happier, healthier, and more productive. Please pretend to be surprised."
If you care about Thunderbird and OpenPGP, I invite you to read my new blog post "Thunderbird, RNP, and the Importance of a Good API", my message to the TB planning mailing list "Let's Use GPL Libraries in Thunderbird!" and voice your opinion on the Thunderbird planning mailing list. #pgp #thunderbird https://sequoia-pgp.org/blog/2021/05/06/202105-thunderbird-rnp-and-the-importance-of-a-good-api/
We (Sequoia PGP) did a thing. We released the Octopus. The Octopus is an alternate OpenPGP backend for Thunderbird, which includes GnuPG integration, certificate updates in the background, security fixes, additional protections, and more. Check it and let me know what you think! https://sequoia-pgp.org/blog/2021/04/08/202103-a-new-backend-for-thunderbird/
The day has arrived. I can finally present you all my new project.
Inspired by NewPipe, Nitter, Invidious or Bibliogram, here comes Lingva, an alternative Front-end for Google Translate.
It's a completely Free and Open Source project, so you can host your own instance. The directions are on the project's README.
You can also make any kind of contribution. Feel free to Pull Request.
