Person sitting across from me on the bus was reading from a kindle and I realized I kinda missed the old days when books had covers and you could start a conversation with, "hey, I read that book..."

The thread on dual funding workflow for LN is interesting, h/t @harding

I am seeing similar to discussions as we had before about P2EP/Payjoin - how to create backout facility in case of maliciousness, how to avoid probing. PoDLE is one idea, but there are others as per discussion. h/t @ZmnSCPxj also.

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.

This says everything I've thought about #Brave for a long time, way better than I can say it.

#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?

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.

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.
