A very old post from @lukedashjr, with a clever way to create an auction using #bitcoin payments.

Seems even more relevant now, PSBTs would make this a lot simpler to implement.

#Science Constructing a Square of Equal Area to a given Polygon

- Librem 5: $700
- Librem 5 USA: $2,000

It's interesting to see how huge the price difference is to produce something in the U.S. versus more affordable manufacturing countries. I think it's cool that Purism is offering that option, though $2k is way too much for me.

Hey all, I'm writing a post about the best open-source alternatives to Google's Android apps. I already have a lot of the big ones (Firefox, ProtonMail, K-9 Mail, Signal, etc.), any more suggestions?

#android #oss

Extended my .org domain name to the maximum before the new TLD owners jack up prices. Now hoping someone will fix DNS before I next have to renew.

I entirely agree with this message on #gunrights. HK is a prime example of the need for such rights in civil defense against tyranny.

I'm excited to announce we're launching a new mailing list for lnd devs/users/vendors, and those building applications/services on top of lnd: groups.google.com/a/lightning. ⚡️

It's hosted via Google Groups so you can either join use it as a regular mailing list via email, or the UI

Ah, the simple joy of short-term renting 32 processors on a VPS so I can get results in hours instead of days. Of course, now I have to force myself to leave the house and go for a bike ride or I'll end up staring at my terminal uselessly waiting for the program to succeed or crash.

Shower thought: a frontend for C-Lightning should be called "Indoors".

*If you C-Lightning, get Indoors.*

This looks interesting: btc-rpc-proxy "enables you to specify several users and for each user the list of RPC calls he's allowed to make." Useful to reduce permissions of LN nodes, liquid, joinmarket, etc etc. github.com/Kixunil/btc-rpc-pro by @kixunil@twitter.com
