GitHub’s new notifications: a case of regressive design
Waiting for unicode-based output to devour fontawesome (and similar). For accessibility purposes. #OpenMoji defines some ui-element glyphs in the private-use area: https://github.com/hfg-gmuend/openmoji/blob/master/src/extras-openmoji/ui-element/E268.svg
Maybe some of these should move to become part of the #unicode standard?
Spent some time this evening working on [Otter](https://github.com/poowf/otter), a free content management framework for laravel (PHP framework). It's promising, but currently leans heavily on a vue.js frontend... for now...
Years ago, I had this cheap $10 "gaming" mouse I bought maybe on ebay or dealextreme. It was perfect: shaped well, no weird, sticky texture. I lost it (maybe left at a friends house) and never saw it again. Tried to buy one online, but I think the model was discontinued. I'd like to get a good mouse for work: Does anyone have any mouse recommendations?
Want to know what President Trump is up to? Even his daily whereabouts leak...
Don't expect to have #privacy!
Call for reviewers
Among other things you can do to help the project, you can help us review the work being done by other contributors.
It's open to anyone, and you don't have to commit on anything: if you are interested, create an account on https://dev.funkwhale.audio and send me a message with your username and your areas of interest and I'll add you to the corresponding groups.
If, for any reason you want to stop, you can leave the groups on your own (or ask me to remove you).
When someone submits a contribution and want some reviews, they'll simply mention the corresponding groups. This is where you receive a notification.
Click the link, read the contribution and post one or more comments, if you have any:
- Questions (even, and *especially* questions that might sound silly)
- Improvements suggestions
If you have nothing to say, but want to let the contributor know you reviewd their work, you can also leave a thumb up.
Literally *any* of the above helps!
You don't have to review everything that is sent your way, and are also free to chose which contributions you are comfortable reviewing.
Thank you so much for your help!
Latest thought on #FossMoji being at 50/3019 #emojis: could machine learning be used for feature detection on existing emoji fonts to influence emoji representation? Would definitions (like [this]https://zachdecook.com/fossmoji-example.yaml.txt)) generated from other fonts be derivative works? Have any vendors alleged infringement over similar redesigns?
It would be better if the internet were modeled off of something like Tor .onion services, where you *know* you have a secure path, because the address is literally the fingerprint of the server. "But how can I make sense of which site is which?" You guessed it, petnames https://github.com/cwebber/rebooting-the-web-of-trust-spring2018/blob/petnames/draft-documents/making-dids-invisible-with-petnames.md
And, bookmarks *are* petnames, with a minor UI tweak https://www.w3.org/2005/Security/usability-ws/papers/02-hp-petname/
The DNS + SSL CA model puts users at risk. I hope we can move past it.
So the government of Kazakhstan is MITM'ing all SSL'ed traffic https://lobste.rs/s/uqj8nq/mitm_on_all_https_traffic_kazakhstan#c_0boxyk
The way they are doing this is by adding a Certificate Authority (CA) that allows them to snoop all traffic.
This is, by the way, why SSL is criticized as being "only as secure as the weakest CA in your system". Here it's deliberate, but that's a problem in general.
