What’s up today?

No change in hosting AFAIK. I think it was Francis who set it up not sure who does that right now.

I certainly saw that but I’ve also seen the loading animation sit there for long periods, sometimes minutes even after a full refresh. Sometimes at least ten minutes. Had this earlier on tablet, just now on a laptop, now I’m on tablet again and it loaded fast.

The loading graphic looks different so I wonder if there’s been an update to discourse?

Love it! Now we just need GBP to decline another nearly 20% against both EUR and USD and it will all be really simple!

Tracker Control is an Android app to block trackers in apps on your device and I’m immediately impressed. Apparently Duck Duck Go have an app tracker blocker too which gets good reports.

Largely over my head, thought it might be of more use to some of the Rust people here. EDIT: article is called ‘Rust: A Critical Retrospective’

Bunnie is a hardware fellow, who just spent a few years learning Rust to (co-)write an OS for this amazingly cool project Precursor | Crowd Supply

I think I posted Precursor before, but now it’s actually ready to be shipped, if I’m understanding correctly. Anyone looking for an open hardware fully Rust-based Risc-V mobile development-board gadget thingie, here you are

Give Up GitHub: The Time Has Come! - Conservancy Blog - Software Freedom Conservancy I presume people saw this, and have seen contingency plans for all the Safe Network source code discussed here before, but just in case.

So one of the general ideas in that article is that if Microsoft’s AI “CoPilot” is involved in the production of your software … then Microsoft may have a legal claim to it in some way??

A very frightening possibility.

The “plan” seems to be to use a social credit scoring mechanism combined with a health passport mechanism … then if they don’t like what you are doing or saying moment to moment (as monitored by AI), then they can simply lock you down by claiming your health passport is invalid.

That may seem like a stretch to some, but they are already doing it in China. … A week or three ago?, concerns began to circulate in China that some smaller banks were insolvent and many people attempted to go to their bank to withdraw their funds … but they were blocked by their covid status which abruptly changed.

The FATF … a scam organization with more and more teeth. This is something that Safer’s need to keep an eye on IMO.
