New post-quantum paper by DJB and Tanja Lange is worth a read (very readable and targeted for a lay audience.)

@jk you can consider yourself priviledged. it means you have access to clean water.

@Gargron good morning, Eugen! Good luck with the user firehose today and thanks for your great work!

Hello friends, I'd just like to interject here for a moment.

Eugen needs money to live, and mastodon.social has server expenses, but money doesn't write code by itself. There's still 183 open issues on the Mastodon project github.
github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Writing a code patch to fix a problem or work in a feature helps not just mastodon.social, but also everyone else running Mastodon, too, and you'll have @Gargron's gratitude, and all the other devs' too.

Love, Trev

Friends, @Gargron's going to have to scale up to support this crazy (and awesome) spike in new users. Let's pay the man: patreon.com/user?u=619786

(Also consider new instances, etc, but we all know mastodon.social's going to get most of the growth for the time being.)
