@Gargron It's the eternal cycle. I forget this place exists, then Twitter does something stupid and I come here to bitch about it.

Question for masto-bitcoin: which one is more likely to be merged first into mainstream bitcoin, SIGHASH_NOINPUT or Neutrino?

New release of eclair incoming!

TL;DR this is a transitional release with quite some performance improvements, faster startup time, faster route computation and better background sync. Soon on the play store.

Hang out on if you want to feel a little nostalgic of the web1.0 :)

Don't make Travis you enemy, he can ruin your day.

So, LN "short_channel_id" is a very underrated feature, it looks like `556877x862x1` and you can tell the block_height, tx_index and out_index! Think of it as a new transaction ID format..but only for confirmed transaction(outputs) and it's visually communicative as well: you can tell if a one is older than another just by comparing the block_height. 8 bytes index of something unique.

Amazon archives and stores all Alexa voice recordings from you and your home, then sends them to you (and others) if you ever request them. What could go wrong?
"Honey, let's buy some btc today"
Alexa: "contacting the IRS."hahaha

You have to be OUT OF YOUR MINDS to put a .gov listening device in your home. jmo

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

If guaranteed minimum income and universal healthcare were a thing, I think so many of my programmer colleagues would immediately take low-income sabbaticals to write high-quality good-ui users-first free and open source software that it would inspire tedious "how was it possible?!?" medium dot com thinkpieces for years and years
