"Here’s what you do when someone breaks something or finds something very difficult to debug: You say thank you. Thank you for finding this edge case. Thank you for highlighting this overcomplicated part of our system. Thank you for pointing out this gap in our docs. And then you go make it so nobody can break it the same way again."

Problems we are having with #Signal:
* It is and will remain centralized (clear strategy of *not* federating servers)
* It requires strong identifiers/selectors (phone#) to use
* Author disallows distribution by anyone but Google, although free/libre
* It keeps pushing away verification of fingerprint in interface
* It relies on Google+Amazon infrastructure
* Its funding is shady (OTF = Radio Free Asia = USG)

= clearly unethical choices, unjustifiable by accessibility or technological reasons.

OMFG I just hate KDE display settings. If I turn off central display via the button it becomes registered as turned off. If I turn it on it never comes back until I manually enable it. No issues as such with left or right display.

All 3 displays are the same make and model and they're all plugged in via DisplayPort adapter.

I don't even have to mention, but here: they all have identical settings.

After all those years KDE still hasn't managed to properly preserve multi-display configuration...

Re: that "malware in AUR" from Sophos on nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2018/. Seems like they're a bit butt-hurt: "Nevertheless, the AUR site is logoed up and branded as the Arch User Repository, not merely the User Repository, so a bit less attitude from the Arch team wouldn’t hurt."

Well, Arch folks are right. :-)

Too bad. Although we were dominant team throughout the match we got few stupid goals...

To be fair, France got one stupid as well...

Hoping wins today! :-)

If someone deserved it that's our country. And to get revenge for '98 against the French...

- Played well all 3 games in group stage.
- Mourinho progressed we'll not exit the group stage
- Played 3 games for 120m in knockout phase
- Won 2 of them on penalty kicks thanks to the great Danijel Subašić
- Played great football all along.

And even if we don't win this is the greatest success in history of our representation.

Finally fixed CI tests for testing and pushing Puppet manifests to live repo... :-)

He likes to be near people. Amazing animal :-)

So Gnome Boxes in Fedora now has the option to download RHEL from it directly. Other images are available through it as well.

Nice move.

Just read Tim Pritlove's rant about the sorry state of Germany's internet infrastructure. While he's certainly right, we should not forget that we already have the tools to build our own net, and they are much cheaper than what we pay to the big companies every month.

A 24 port gigabit router is ~100€. A 50 meter ethernet cable is ~15€. On top, we have #Freifunk, and directional WiFi can bridge several kilometers in the countryside.

What we need is a sense of community. A bottom-up approach 🤔

Belgium vs France is gonna be good

"If a user uses the rclone sync command to migrate data between different Google Cloud Storage buckets, a situation is created where the full contents of any arbitrary URL chosen by the Google Cloud Storage API server will be silently sent to Google."

We're seeing numerous API libraries that subtly trust the security of API endpoints.

"Google has declined to fix the above vulnerability through their security vulnerability reporting program."
