@jdaviescoates @arran @sir it’s a tad limited as compared to something like Bonsai.

I mean I want to start reading an ebook with Foliate on my laptop, synchronise it’s state with my phone, and continue reading on my phone exactly where I stopped on my laptop.

Or synchronise RSS feeds reading state without relying on Nextcloud.

Or podcasts.

🇩🇪 Ich will die EU-Kommission dazu befragen, warum sie bei ihrer Kommunikation das #Fediverse ignoriert und damit Monopole verfestigt. Habt ihr Anregungen zum Entwurf?
🇬🇧 I want to ask the EU Commission why it ignores the #Fediverse in its public communications and thus supports tech monopolies. Do you have any suggestions regarding the draft?

It's a sad situation that it's so difficult to set up self-owned online services. It's taken me weeks to set up my own code hosting platform, working on it in my free time. Similarly with my fediverse instance, and before that my Nextcloud setup.

I have a lot more tech experience than the average person, plus the privilege of having free time to do all this, and I've still found it difficult. So it's practically unachievable for the majority of people.

This is what keeps people locked within surveillance capitalism.

Site.js version 15.2.1 released

After a little over a month of work, I’ve created a database for Site.js called JavaScript Database (JSDB) and integrated it as a first-class citizen.

Introducing JSDB

“It’s all JavaScript… What I mean by that is that even the data is stored as JavaScript code. Not JSON. JavaScript.”

You might need a VPN to Norway to watch it, and I am having some trouble with the DRM on Linux.

Ever wondered what is really going on with the drug policy in Norway?

We made headlines world-wide a couple of years back because the government announced an intent to decriminalize all drugs, much like Portugal did in 2001.

A new documentary is available for rent for 65 NOK only this month. I assume it will be unavailable for a while, when it is shown on different film festivals.

✓ Draft RFC for BARE message encoding submitted to the IETF

It took a little over a month to create JSDB but it was a worthwhile tangent. I am now working on integrating it into Site.js (sitejs.org).

For one thing, it feels good to know that I will never have to struggle with overkill databases created for Big Tech people farming while making simple Small Web sites/apps :)

:awesome: 👍

If you're on a Win10 machine, update your system right now. There's a TCP/IP stack level remote-root vulnerability in play, affecting anyone who can see IPV6 packets from the wild. Update and reboot as soon as possible.

After 30 years, grants asylum to a Polish person again:
theguardian.com/world/2020/oct

> Gaweł’s case is the first time political asylum has been granted to a Pole in more than 30 years since the fall of communism in . [Observers] see it as another sign that international trust in Poland’s justice system has been undermined by the government.

> Some other courts in Europe have refused to extradite Poles, saying they cannot have a fair trial under Poland’s government.

My preferred :
openssl rand 14 -base64
gpg --gen-random --armor 1 14

... but the passwords are not easy to remember. A good argument to use a password manager.

"Subprime Attention Crisis" is a new book by Tim Hwang that argues that the ad-tech market is a bubble created by an ad industry doing what it does best: convincing advertisers that it is really, really good at selling its products.
