Here's a new series of Vaibhav Saini's blog posts on #IPFS that promises to go into depth about #IPLD, #multiformats, etc. The first article in the series had clear explanations of using #IPFS and #IPNS.

@alcinnz @brainblasted IMO you shouldn't install apps you can't trust, and that is part of why I think Flatpak, Snap and AppImage are not something I want to rely on.

Package maintainers should be QAing each package, ensuring it has no anti-features, and pushing updates through my package manager. Bypassing this process gets us into a situation where Devs can do nefarious things without oversight from nearly anyone.

What if privacy law was as strict as copyright law nowadays? You are not allowed to copy any private information about someone until 70 years after their death, even if it was non-commercial, and you can sue the heck (that is: €€€) out of someone if they do.
And then do the reverse to copyright law: copying anything copyrighted is the standard, creators who don't want it are refuted with "Oh, but you don't have something to hide, do you?", and Big Tech and Government actively help people to copy work from creators and to spread it further.

This is why I think it's important to have a deep understanding of the tools we use.

#TIL more magic you have, more deeply you have to debug sometimes.

Getting back to my debugging process of #spark (because solution did not fix the issue), I've found out that middleware serializer kryo did serialization of classes recursively, to make everything right. That's obvious solution and I would do it same way myself. And this would work in 99% cases. Except when it tried to serialize a deep LinkedTree.

That was the reason to fail. Be careful with recursive schemes, kids. JVM don't like 'em!

I am thoroughly shocked to discover the fact that Hideo Kojima has predicted the problem of #FakeNews and #PoliticalTribalism in MGS2, almost two decades before they actually became a part of the public debate. This two-part video describes that very well.

@grubernaut this is a good example why dynamically-sized arrays on the stack are a bad idea.

Is there a reference ActivityPub C2S client implementation yet?

That said, if there's a server somewhere, it has to have a reference client, if only for testing.

I got blindsided by this when dealing with another team at a day gig. We were trying to get he other team to write the client for the server we were writing. In a meeting, the wily old tech lead for the other team asked, "How do you intend to test the server?" At that moment, I knew we were checkmated, we had to write the client in order to test the server. So, we got tasked with writing both.

So far, everything I've thrown at this card seems to work just fine. Microstuttering is gone under X11 and Wayland. Wayland solves all my screen tearing problems too, thanks to vsync by default. For once I actually feel happy with this machine

The Nvidia suffering is over. This AMD card rocks on Wayland

Reddit is another site that annoys me because I can't just get my front page as an RSS feed, nor get a feed for each subreddit I'm interested in.
I'm sorry, but their site isn't as important as they think and I'm probably going to avoid using it if I can't just get RSS feeds for it.

I should try using IRC without ZNC some time.
