i. it is better to delete code than to write code.

ii. the more code software has, the worse it becomes.

iii. the best software is that which does not exist.

iv. merely good programmers solve problems. truly great programmers do not confront them in the first place.

v. the greatest programmer of all is the humble farmer who spends his days in hard and honest labor growing food for his family and people, who has never in his life heard of a computer, and never will

@nolan After hours of pondering and trying different things, I finally found a way to "install" as a PWA in Gnome in . Independent of any other running firefox instance and with the Pinafore icon. I'll write a little blog post about it soon(ish).

I've come to the realization that we need federated Git hosting now.

Is there any Git hosting platform that supports federation of things like pull requests and issues?

If you are concerned with #zoom''s acquisition of #keybase, knowing zooms bad track of dealing with privacy, you have good reasons to do.

If you choose to delete your keybase, account and youโ€™ve got some #stellar coins left inside that you prefer to gift away instead of deleting or knowing it will be for zooms profit, know that we do have a stellar address you can donate to.

This is AWESOME!!
Here's how to join @wiktor's decentralized keybase replacement effort, using myself as an example.

Thank you so much, Wiktor! Thatโ€™s all I ever wanted Keybase to do for me. And now thereโ€™s a way to do this, but decentralized. This is awesome.

OpenPGP Proofs
ยซThis document describes a method of adding social proofs to OpenPGP keys in a way that can be independently verified by clients. This is similar to Keybase but decentralized.ยป

@jokke Exactly. The only things you should trust are the ones that you donโ€™t have to trust because the people who built them decentred themselves and designed them so you donโ€™t need to trust them to begin with.

Thanks to everyone who helped and supported us to make this happen.

It looks like some kind of healing magic XD . Is a technique used to burn "poplar fluff".

I don't get "fully GDPR compilant" as a sale/marketing point. It's like your restaurant saying "no spoiled food served" or your car stating "does not explode while driving" - That's the default - everything else is illegal.
Not being GDPR compliant is literally breaking EU-law.

Hello Mastodon!

We're the devs working on uberspace.de.

Our presence on mastodon isn't quite ready for prime time yet, but the dev team already found a home.

Follow us for under-the-hood quirks, hopefully useful tips about python/django and packaging, as well as occasional friendly rants about qmail or other software. If you're lucky you might also get to see a sneak peek or three.

boots welcome :)

Zoom acquired Keybase today.

Keybase helped me to identify a trend in the software industry: using a pretty UI to cover up the disruption of an open ecosystem with a closed, centralized replacement. Keybase seemed cool on the face of it - making encryption easier is a laudible goal, and PGP certainly could use the improvement. But, thanks to Keybase, now I ask different questions upfront.

Beware the Keybase formula:

1. Integrates with an existing, open ecosystem
2. May have open-source clients, but server is closed source and does not federate
3. Pretty UI and good marketing
4. VC funded
