"Fine, so you are a magic sword. But honestly, your balance feels a bit off. Can you do anything else than talk?"
"I can speak every language."
"What use is that in a sword?"
"I can talk to your enemies, make you understand them."
"To make it easier to kill them?"
"No, harder."

A Furry’s Guide to Cryptocurrency - Soatok: soatok.blog/2021/04/19/a-furry

Interesting, 2nd blockchain article today!

Personally blockchains are mostly a source of annoyance to me: I get expected to be interested by merit of being a "techie". And generally when an employer/client/etc wants to use them, I get the impression they're going about the problem solving process all wrong.

But I don't want to dismiss blockchains out of hand...

How to opt your site out of Google's new FLoC user tracking programme with OpenBSD's relayd(8):

(1) add this one-liner to any "http protocol" block(s) in /etc/relayd.conf, and

(2) restart relayd

> match response header set "Permissions-Policy" value "interest-cohort=()"

Afterward you should see this in the HTTP header response:

$ curl -sI my.site | grep Permissions-Policy
Permissions-Policy: interest-cohort=()

i've tagged out 600+ open source, experimental and tiny tools by their qualities and built a new website for sorting through them!

these are all tools towards joyful digital creation, with the goal of enabling working entirely outside of proprietary systems- moving instead from one hand-made software to another.

(the list takes submissions if it is missing yours >:))

I'm going to share this New Republic article about Gates' influence on access to medicine one more time, because it's so important to critically examine the role of philanthropy.

The Gates Foundation and Gates' philanthropy are, in many ways, the best case scenario for billionaire interventions in public health. Even here, "philanthropy" becomes an extension of the founder's destructive ideology.

Imagine what could be done if we just taxed this wealth properly.

If you're annoyed by the shit #Signal is doing, don't switch to the next centralized thing. They all tend to go bad after a while and you can't do anything about it. Use decentralized messengers instead, like #XMPP, #Matrix or #Deltachat. Federated protocols like them can't add features unless a lot of people agree.

After some adjusting of the SSD on the bay (it's thinner than the original HDD) and a few changes to the SATA operation, it lives! 🐡🤓👍🏻

All that's left is to possibly replace the Wi-Fi module because of that one word that offends:

Broadcom. 😱

Protect your schedule, including the empty time.

I have uploaded selected content from my downloaded birdsite archive to gemini://gemini.samebchase.com
There are almost 2700 tweets in there. 😅

Check it out!

Note: You'll need a Gemini client to access that. I can wholeheartedly recommend Lagrange (Desktop), Ariane (Android) or Elpher (Emacs)

Do Rust, Go, and Arch Linux users have a conference where they exchange ideas on how to say "I use ..."?
