I finally tried DeltaChat, and I love it! It's WAAY better than I thought, it makes E2EE chat over e-mail SOO fun and interesting. The mobile apps are native and modern, FOSS quality 100%. It's been only 10 minutes since I installed it, and I have only talked with my dad, but so far the experience has been great.

Thanks, @delta, for this amazing concept! I thought it was garbage, but I was totally wrong.

This will definitely go to my "Free software worth checking out" series on my #Gemini gemlog. gemini://avalos.me/gemlog/

If you're using Mastodon on a computer, did you know you can control it entirely through your keyboard?

Kinda hard to believe I made this video 7 years ago. Really looking forward to getting back into some solid poi training in 2021; still so much more to learn and discover.

I haven't talked about my goal for personal computing in a while.

With Sundog nerdsniping me in to attempting to turn the LibSSH-ESP32 port in to the basis of a full fledged SSH client for the ESP32, I guess I should spend a few minutes talking about why I bother with this bullshit.

Consider submitting a talk to the “#declarative and #minimalistic computing” devroom at #FOSDEM 2021! 👇

It’ll be a very different FOSDEM this year, but hopefully we can have packed videoconf rooms too (!), with more people from regions of the world usually underrepresented in Brussels.

What happened to that command I just ran? It's not in my history.

You probably put a space in front of it and the bash history mechanism is often configured to ignore commands that start with a space via the HISTCONTROL and HISTIGNORE shell variables.

an important report has just been published by my friend emmi: The Decentralized Web of Hate

"Fascists (and other bad actors) are [...] hosting manifestos resiliently, raising money anonymously, communicating securely to organize attacks, sharing weapons plans, and networking to build out their numbers."

"We cannot abandon p2p technology but we also can't ignore the risks. The only way out is through."


My mechanical watch and (dumb) microwave have the correct time, but my phone and computer decided to "fall back" and switch to UTC-05. The computer was misconfigured to New York timezone, but the phone knows exactly where I am. What's it's excuse?

@kensanata Remember a little while back when you were interested in the idea of smolnet propaganda? I found a short blog post by Bruce Sterling (wired.com/beyond-the-beyond/20) which ends with the line "My internet is substantially quieter than yours, and teaches me new things every day". I absolutely love this line! "My internet is substantially quieter than yours" is a wonderful catchphrase by itself, perfect for fans of Gopher, Gemini and pubnixes.

"Falsehoods programmers believe about..." is a whole genre unto itself:

* Music
* Online shopping
* Email addresses
* Gender
* Language
* Addresses

After actively testing #deltachat for the past 6 months, I can say that it works well and looks like a long term viable solution #chat app for me.

To improve: the setup process. It can be confusing when wanting have mutiple clients connected with the same account. But pass that phase, all is good.

To test: group chat. Only had one on one conversations so far. Need more friends using it.

Unexpected use: saving personal notes to self, encrypted, available on all my devices. Absolutely love it.
