Backblaze did not mention the libcurl inclusion and license, and in the process of fixing it, they also donated 15k to the (lib)curl project and development: daniel.haxx.se/blog/2020/01/14

Highly recommended reading if you do Ops or DevOps.
Paraphrasing someone who commented elsewhere:
First I chuckled,
Then I nodded with increasing frequency,
Then I cringed,
Then I wept,
And finally I just dissolved in tears.

Ouch! I'm in this [picture] and I don't like it!
#DevOps and a bit of #infosec.

@ajeremias hah, I know Swagger. However, this is not a REST API:
0xacab.org/rysiek/samizdat/blo

API is what messages get passed between the ServiceWorker and browser window context, what methods plugins must implement, etc.

I have a few things I can focus on in once I report all the NodeJS-related bugs (and before they get fixed).

I am very tempted to finally write the IPFS/IPNS plugin (completely side-stepping Gun), or a dat:// plugin. But perhaps I should do some boring stuff from the Beta milestone?
0xacab.org/rysiek/samizdat/-/m

So, a poll! What should I focus on in Samizdat?

Copyright should not be a global monolith. In implementing copyright law, lawmakers should carefully balance the rights of copyright holders with the rights of the public to use and build upon copyrighted works. eff.org/deeplinks/2020/01/dont

@kravietz @kensanata @grimmware @rysiek I have faxed over PSTN as well as over SIP in serial w/PSTN. You seem to be talking about quality not reliability. I use this cmd to obtain a WYSIWYG fax doc: gs -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=tiffg3 -r204x196 -sPAPERSIZE="$paperform" -dFIXEDMEDIA -sOutputFile="$tiffg3_filename" "$src_pdf"

@jaranta EFF’s surveillance self defense site is great. @privacytools is also keen.

And...

The single most important concept in (and in ) is there are no absolutes. It’s all about tradeoffs. Perfection doesn’t happen and that’s OK.

People who do not grok this either live in fear or wind up giving up entirely. Neither extreme gets then what they want.

@nipos @nedelne_rano @resist1984 @frommMoritz and yet history is important. There is a balance to be found here somewhere.

If you don't want your information public, don't make it public. Facebook already disallows crawling, so does Twitter, by the way. So your point is mostly moot anyway.

CloudFlare unilaterally deciding to screw over one of the main projects keeping Internet history is not that balance.

#CloudFlare is now hitting the archive.org wayback machine with the same #CAPTCHA as #Tor users, thus censoring history too.

ohai frens not from the south:

u need to understand that the south is composed of communities of people of color, queer and trans people, and disabled people, as well as vast natural ecosystems, which are all being held hostage by a system that wants them dead and the land despoiled in the name of profit.

make sure that your words and actions are in solidarity with marginalized people and with ecosystems.

Seems like Gun has some bugs when running from . This is affecting (and is in fact the reason why development is not really moving right now).

I've reported one bug already:
github.com/amark/gun/issues/89

More to come.

Oh, did I write a test harness just for that? Yes. Yes I did:
github.com/rysiekpl/gun-nodejs

(GitHub because Gun is hosted there; personally I prefer unifficial Gitlab instances, obviously)
