A few days ago, I got the second shot of the Moderna vaccine. Starting last night, I've had a headache, body aches, and a 100 degree fever with no other symptoms characteristic of, say, a cold or the flu.

Assuming it doesn't get worse, I guess I'd still have done it for the ability to travel without restrictions again, but this is more than the mild discomfort I expected.

Tomorrow's Bitcoin Core PR Review Club will look at PR18418 "Increase OUTPUT_GROUP_MAX_ENTRIES to 100" by fjahr.

Come discuss and learn about coin selection, and how the way it is used to construct transactions over time can leak information about a wallet.

Notes and questions are up. Thanks to glozow for hosting!

Tomorrow @Bitcoin_Sydney is hosting Bitcoin Core contributor @ajtowns & maintainer @fanquake and i'll be moderating

Join us 6pm Wed 12th at Hotel Harry's

Bitcoin Optech newsletter #147 is here:

- encourages miners to start signaling for taproot
- describes continued discussion about closing lost LN channels using only a wallet seed
- announces Bitcoin Core 0.21.1
- announces BTCPay 1.1.0

might be interesting: a new process isolation method was just merged into the #linux kernel, landlock, that does not itself need special permissions to use, and has object instead of syscall granularity

patch set:

RT @bitentrepreneur
Poolin found a mining machine firmware that lacks the ability to signal, this is the reason why we have not fully signaled through ALL our nodes.
Poolin tech team is assisting the firmware team right now to get that firmware upgraded - thanks.

the (not bitcoin-dev) mailing list is now officially an announcements list

it was already *effectively* an announcements list for a long time—no discussion ever happened on it—but it is set up as moderated now

so if you are interested in a low-traffic list for notifications of releases, release candidates and security warnings, subscribe to:

In less than 24h it receives from its followers more than €150,000 needed to buy a national TV channel to broadcast throughout Italy.
