@slackz Organising on Facebook is handing a nicely formatted list of all activists, all their contacts, friends and family, their 24/7 location data, browsing history, and a list of how to manipulate them to the authorities.
It doesn't matter how many people are there, it's not worth it.
If people truly care about an issue they'll go to the extreme inconvenience of typing a different URL into their browser to visit a safer site with less surveillance built in.
I already started on the macOS app (written in #Swift), but I need help polishing the UI and packaging it up. For the Windows app, I'm not sure where to start. So I'm looking for #developers that can help with either!
If you're interested, feel free to send me a message. Otherwise please pass it along to anyone you know!
So people are attacking Peertube and threatening to fork, over an issue that was opened just one day ago. And they are complaining that the developer wants to clarify the issue, and find a concrete way to solve it.
Honestly they should put just 10% of the effort used for complaining, and specify/implement a solution.
Forking the project is a step into that direction, so that's cool with me. And if the fork has any useful new features, I will definitely backport them into Peertube.
Spent a bunch of time configuring Alacritty + tmux, hoping I’d get a snappier terminal on the large external monitor I use at work. But in the end, it seems all GPU accelerated terminal emulators suffer when the window is large.
So ironically, I get the best performance from non-accelerated iTerm2. 🤨
It appears Google Home has enabled WebRTC again. Which is awesome! Means the Google Cast app for https://noisy.fun/ is working again on the Home. (And you no longer have to cast tab, which had like a second latency.) 😁
Our company is remote only, and I think this site is a good point of reference for anyone interested in how that works: https://www.remoteonly.org
💙 Better for iOS 12 is now available on the App Store.
We’ve made the app simpler, easier to use, and just as effective as before.
We’ve also made the app more affordable at $0.99, £0.99, €1.09 because we want more folks to be protected on the web.
foreign language cusses are fascinating sometimes:
«In modern times, the Korean phrase "eat yeot" [a traditional confection] (엿 먹어라) has a vulgar meaning, comparable to using the words "fuck you" in English. The phrase originated from the middle-school entry exams scandal of 1964 [...]»
Lot’s of talk about replacing the web / bloated browsers. But practically, the web is today’s primary sandboxed application runtime. Like Java and Flash before smartphones.
Now we all hated on Java and Flash, but the web at least has competing implementations and no single owner.
And exactly what alternatives are there for untrusted apps? App Store / Google Play have plenty more downsides.
Yay, my bot @neuralspells appears to be tooting regularly now.
D&D spells generated straight from a neural network, never before seen by human eyes!
Been trying out Safari as my main browser for several weeks now, but just decided to quit. Several web apps that run smooth in Chrome are just unbearably slow in Safari.
I don't like the Google dependency, but think I'm stuck here. I don't really trust other builds of Chromium, and Firefox is also unbearably slow on hires.
