My guess it’s not so much a ban as the practical consequence of adhering to the current sanctions. After all GSOC implies a paid position, and payments to these regions are covered by the sanctions.

Just a wee heads up here: I've been waiting for the release of this album for years now, so tired of waiting I'm releasing it myself. The full release will be available on all major online music stores and streaming services December 25.

Other projects whose federation works similar to Pleroma/Mastodon will likely also federate.

I’m able to follow a community from Hubzilla (with the ActivityPub extension enabled.) It doesn’t appear as a forum in Hubzilla but as a regular contact. Which I guess is as expected.

I don’t disagree with that, but there’s nothing preventing anybody from setting up their own OIDC service, and for sites to accept any OIDC provider rather than just a couple of giant ones.

And yeah, the Hubzilla Magicauth is really nice! Not sure how easy it is to apply it to other uses than Hubzilla/zot though. Could be worth exploring.

Isn’t this exactly what OpenID Connect is/was all about? Afaik this is still the protocol behind the “log in with facebook/google/github” options you find on many websites, but it can be a fully decentralised authentication scheme if they’d only let users type in their own identity url.

The Norwegian consumer council has published a new report where they suggest a ban on the surveillance based revenue model dominating the web today. Warning: the site itself uses Google Analytics and Tag Manager, protect yourself before visiting.

Hey, sorry for the late reply. I just followed the instructions on the page I linked about how to install gnuk on the device. For your part since you’re planning on using a different firmware, the interesting instructions start in the “Connecting the ST-Link” section.

In other words, you first need to develop or build the firmware you want to run on it, then upload the firmware to the device as described in the link.

Once the firmware is uploaded you can remove the cables and it will work like just any USB stick with the given firmware. If you don’t need them, you can also remove the headers on the end of the device.

Hope that helps, and I’m not too late. (Sorry again!)

Here’s the devices we used, you should be able to find them on any larger electronics supplier, or even build one yourself. AliExpress has numerous variants

The thing about these devices is that they are simple general purpose microcontrollers with a USB port attached. So you can use them for anything. We turned them into OpenPGP hardware tokens, but you could use them for whatever you want, like an evilUSB, or anything else.

From the factory the devices are set up as programmers, so that you can use one device to flash code to any number of other devices.

Hope that helps!

Not quite, but in my previous job we made some usb OpenPGP hardware tokens using cheap STM32 usb devices. Got them from alibaba for a few dollars a piece iirc. Fairly simple devices, and you could use one of them to program the other. Sorry I don’t remember the exact device at the moment, but could look it up tomorrow if you’re interested.

“The Arabs - A History” by Eugene Rogan is a good and comprehensive introduction to the history of the arab peoples. This goes way beyond just palestine, but that’s also necessary to get the full overview of the messed up politics that lead to the problems that still plague the area.

I could care less about “growth” if that growth means an influx of disgusting racists. I’d much rather have a smaller, positive community that defends members of targeted communities.

You have no idea how good it is to see this attitude from the central developers of the platform. How much better wouldn’t the world be if more people were thinking like this? Kudos to you all!


The tool hashes the email you entered and uses only this hash to perform a search in our database

Not quite what I expected. They might still hash it server side though, but with these kind of tools I’d expect them to do it client side. At least when I allow them to run js.

For example, WhatsApp rolled out voice calls before an XMPP extension was available, if I remember correctly.

No, the Jingle extension to xmpp was about five years ahead of whatsapp voice calls. How many clients (and servers) that implemented it may be a different matter though.

Probably not what you’re looking for, but Hubzilla has a cart addon that is an online store you can host in a channel. Documentation is scarce and it’s a tad on the primitive side, but useable enough for simple shops.

Rust Design Patterns - now available as online book
Original [announcement](https://www.reddit.com/r/rust/comments/kowtqn/rust_design_patterns_now_also_as_a_book/) on r/rust: > Around 10 days ago I asked in this subreddit about the maintenance of the [unofficial Rust Patterns repository](https://www.reddit.com/r/rust/comments/kixlax/regarding_rustunofficialpatterns_which_seems/). Today MarcoIeni and me are happy to announce that we are maintaining this repository now and created a book from it with mdBook. > > There is still much to do, PRs to be merged and other patterns to be included, but it's a really nice resource already. And we are looking forward to your contributions to improve the quality and to raise the amount of covered design patterns in this book even further. Both help with the review of existing issues/PRs and brand new content is very well accepted. > > Happy new year!

Bevy is a refreshingly simple data-driven game engine built in Rust.

There’s a beta release of Briar GTK just released: https://nico.dorfbrunnen.eu/posts/2020/briar-beta/

Haven’t tried it myself yet, but the mere fact it exists give me hope!
