What's cool in the #XMPP community:

It's a community.

Even the vendors or software developers are reboosting the release notifications of new software version from another vendor/developer to make it spread to a wider audience.

I like that community! :-)

Cars continue to copy the smartphone business model, now have mandatory pre-installed services and apps (and the tracking that comes with them): thedrive.com/news/gm-makes-150

* Whoogle, Searx, & SearxNG for Google, etc
* Wikiless for Wikipedia (though not as needed)

And thanks to farside.link/ for loadbalancing instances of these to ensure I don't overload them!

2/2 Fin!

@Los7key @gael Firefox based browsers, mainly. Tor Browser, Fennec, etc, if there are concerns about what Mozilla bakes into the ff builds. Unfortunately there isn't much choice when it comes to browser engines anymore. A lot of selection of the least bad option.

A little tech preview on iOS of a new "setup/link second device" flow ... Delta chat here is using the evolving new Rust implementation of IPFS github.com/n0-computer/iroh/ ... and, who knows, a couple of more features might spring from that ;)

Video of my #MCH2022 talk about #Signal is already available:

> This is a rant about how moving ecosystems are not a good reason for centralizing a crucial service, how stickers are no substitute for a desktop client that does not crash, and how effectively shutting out less popular OS platforms is just not cool.

This is a rant. Take with a grain of salt and perhaps some popcorn.

To explain why this is cool, a belt 3D printer (I brought one of the first to market with my buddies @wjsteele@twitter.com and @NAK3DDesigns@twitter.com😎) lets you *print things larger than the printer itself*- it's like a Tardis. For now, thermoplastic, but theoretically anything extrudable.

A wonderful write-up about tar file format and why computational complexity matters even in cases you wouldn't think it does!

Let me tell you, don't rely on flash for cold storage of important data. I learned it the hard way, despite knowing better.

A short thread. (1/n)

Dear Canadians in Ontario, Quebec, and B.C.: if you purchased an optical disk drive or any machine containing one between 2005 and 2010 you should go claim your $20 from the price-fixing class action lawsuit we just won.

No proof of purchase required, submission deadline is 2022-11-14.

(If you're thinking "jeez, there sure is a lot of price fixing going on in this country", MMM-HMM)

This is one of those cases where it's really best to stick with one or two well-known brands, or wait until you can afford one. It's just a waste of money to get a cheap meter that just measures VOCs as a proxy etc. and it's hard to know if it's real NDIR or not- they just lie.

Ok I have a CO2 meter review video coming up but quick summary:
Every no-name Aliexpress CO2 meter under $100 sucks.
If they say they are NDIR they are probably lying.
The @AranetIoT@twitter.com is expensive but worth it.
The @TheatreCaps@twitter.com Mini CO2 monitor is an acceptable alternative.

This was predictable. Facebook/Meta is now encrypting the QP data so that Firefox and other privacy conscious browsers that strip the tracking data can't. Only way to avoid it is to not use Facebook at all. #DeleteFacebook #SurveillanceCapitalism www.ghacks.net/2022/07/17/face…
