I've been pushing XMPP a lot lately. Signal is a fantastic bit of software that's FOSS and best for privacy, but the platform isn't really open. It's ultimately controlled by Moxie and the Signal Foundation. They don't want it federating with other servers, the client isn't designed to handle multiple accounts for possible multiple servers, and they don't want any other clients connecting to their server.

I'd rather just stick to XMPP and help it improve.

@mdbraber Can I request an update for mastodon.nl to its latest release? There's quite a few fixes and nice changes since v3.0.1

first selection criterium on chosing a bank today: does their app work on rooted phone without google services?

I'm on my third bank app now, the last one functioned till a week ago with help of , but stopped working today.

customer service didn't care much (they did suggest removing root and installing google services though)

It's finally here, teasing is over:

I'm excited to launch #keyoxide today!


#FOSS solution for easy encryption, signature verification and decentralized identity proofs!

I've been in favor of #DeleteKeybase but I never had something to offer as an alternative. Now I do :)

The app is truly a joy to use.

Quality of the app is top notch. Especially the interface design is worth a look.

- every ui element gets introduced on first use
- good use of tap and tap-and-hold (roughly: toggle vs configure)
- a very interesting widget design to fine-tune showing amenities without losing oversight
- the interface stays very clean which is important for mapping applications.

a rare gem


It's been a while, but I'm letting spam callers again listen to the screaming monkeys.


Trigger was a 'Infinity inquirer' (?) series of calls on "investment advice survey" which would only stop after i took a survey (so they said. Obviously, I didn't take the survery)

Turns out that the default 10k api v3 units is ridiculously low. (this used to be 1M units!)

My based blog program has bitrotted a bit too much.

Instead of fixing the code, it seems gohugo.io does pretty much everything I want. Tempted to just use .

My main need is format as a first class citizen (probably using ?)

Took me a whole day to consolidate my configuration to + setup.

Goal was simplification.

- systemd config mistakes can lead to silent failures
- I will never master shell script quoting
- moving window (frame) management to a window manager completely is not trivial
- emacsclient has hardcoded action for -a flag, which makes using sockets harder

Full config published here:

github.com/dkrivoruchko/Screen turns out to be near perfect for what I need!

It does everything I need, except the manually written notes get rotated / moved on the stream using the onyx ereader.

So close....

The app is worth checking out in any case, it's of higher quality than most apps out there. Very well done.

For this specific usecase, I ended up using and sharing my screen typing away in an document.


(github.com/Genymobile/scrcpy) would be so useful if it worked with my ereader.

For example, teaching math to my nephew using , I miss a 'shareable piece of paper and pen'

@mdbraber Is er een upgrade te verwachten van mastodon.nl van 3.0.1 naar 3.1.4 ?

I'm not sure if I like @nextcloud becoming something of a kitchensync for "everything that runs on a server".

Do one thing. Do that well. comes to mind.
