Wow, still generating a lot of electricity. Mostly going to the grid today. Kinda amazing how solar just keeps producing without any further work. The cost is sunk, the power's vital.

While the world is justifiably focused on #COVID19 remember that our (US) leadership has yet another plan to effectively outlaw encryption called "EARN IT".

People who can't use email are ipso facto not competent to draft such legislation.

The #Jitsi meet app in F-Droid should be updated to the latest version by tomorrow!

Good luck to everyone doing remote work at this time.

@sheogorath However: at the moment, F@H is a bit empty. They have run out of units to give ... quite a bit in the past 4 days. I currently have 4 machines that can't get any units.

So if you don't get any units - it's LIKELY that, not that you've set it up incorrectly.

Boinc is an alternative which DOES have units, rosetta@home is contributing research to fight Covid-19 as well, so if you don't get F@H units consider doing that as well.

Wrote a MediaWiki template for Quote today because the Import and Export from Wikipedia was too cumbersome.

Probably looks nothing like Wikipedia but qualifies as customization of my wiki.

Elon Musk: "Make human life multi-planetary"

🤔 Too idealistic, can't trust.

Jeff Bezos: "We must go to space to tap its unlimited resources and energy"

🤔 Hmm, getting closer.

Peter Diamandis: "The first trillionaire is going to be made in space"

😅 Now you're talking. Y'all weren't satisfied being billionaires and wanted to be trillionaires. All this idealistic bullshit about space travel is an empty apology for destroying earth and trying to run away to somewhere safer with your wealth.

Finally, the fediverse icon mosaic is finished - and I love the result :blobheartcat:

F-Droid is a repository of Android applications. They care a lot about my freedom, f.ex. by building reproducibly and flagging apps with a non-free smell as having "features you may not like". That's very considerate. Thank you F-Droid maintainers!
