Apparently there's now around 500 people following me – hi thar, I guess this is a good time for a re-:

I'm a self-taught old-school hacker with a penchant for and .

I used to work as PHP bitch in a shitty web advertising agency but quit in '14 because I hated every bit of it.

Since then, I've been on the local equivalent of welfare and worked on my own projects – and .

My life goal is creating a productive commons of infrastructure.

The second alpha release is out now – featuring…



Also a bunch of backwards-compatible fixes, but most of the work definitely went into the docs.

"Deep Adaptation: A Map for Navigating Climate Tragedy"

This might just be the most important paper of the 21st century and you should drop whatever you're doing and read it.

PS: I usually never ask for this, but please spread this by any means necessary.

Hello, world!

I have a special treat for you:

versions of all three albums by , probably my favorite musician, who has been putting out free tunes with a cybrepunk flavor for over 10 years.

Also added them to the so y'all can legally seed these dank tunes via . :)

Wake up. Have nothing to drink. Notice everything in a 5km radius is closed, everything behind it closes in 30 minutes and isn't reachable in that time… :F

90s Techno was a better place.

Way more idealistic and grassroots than todays scene. Maybe their optimism and hope wasn't justified but even so, things like the Loveparade were magical.

Let's not forget that it was (or at least started as) annual protest and kept being the biggest (and free!) celebration in the history of humanity – the 2008 Loveparade in Dortmund was attended by 1.6 MILLION people.

I hope people get inspired by its example once more some day…

Finally playing Marathon, one of the earlier (1994) games of Halo developer Bungie Studios.

The way it sounds, it's one of those titles that were very influential amongst game developers, but forgotten by almost everybody else.

Already noticed that it has push-to-use health-chargers like popularized in Half-Life, but 4 years earlier.

Also, it's (now) a legitimately FOSS game, including the game data for the full trilogy:

There's a port as well. :)

Okay, so apparently for some reason I somehow know the author of qutebrowser.

And TLS client cert auth is even on their radar, but depends on an upstream fix.

So maybe I can actually deprecate firefox mid 2019 or something…

Jetzt wo mein Poll so gut ankommt und meine Einreichung beim @west CfP wohl auch super gut ankommt fühle ich mich gleich noch mehr genötigt eine gute Show zu veranstalten. Hach es ist ein gutes Gefühl :D Macht alle mit unter

Hokay, so python3 support for seems to be……… done?

Had to kill all keygen support (which was broken since M2Crypto became incompatible to pyspkac anyways) for that to work tho…

But now it doesn't have any alternative to the server generating the whole keypair and sending it over the internet - I mean it goes through a TLSd connection but it's still just *wrong* :F

"The fstat utility identifies open files."

Except it fucking doesn't. It's literally impossible to make it give you the names or paths (i.e. identities) of opened files.

Can't find out if any processes are accessing a directory either…

So either I don't get any info or I get info I can't relate to anything.

I started messing about with yadifa (EURids DNS server) because I'm currently unable to muster the focus needed for programming.

Took me basically the whole night, but I have a working PoC setup for standards-compliant DNS updates.

Probably looking into TSIG next because that sounded like cryptographic auth for the whole deal?

Not like I can sleep anyways… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
