is advertised as “logic-less templates”. In reality it contains some logic: a section can be displayed or not depending on whether a variable is non false. Bad marketing.

Starting today, ercoin.tech is generated using instead of . It therefore depends on and instead of gigabytes of Haskell binaries. A minimalistic static site generator for a minimalistic site (1 HTML file, 1 CSS file).

Why using / to compile a simple static website (1 HTML file, 1 CSS file) hosted on Pages may be a bad idea:

• When using Stack, the ~/.stack directory is about 3.5 GB.
• The build fails when running on CI, (apparently due to an old Stack version): gitlab.com/Ercoin/ercoin.tech/ .
• When fixed, the build times out after one hour of running: gitlab.com/Ercoin/ercoin.tech/ .
• If cabal sandbox is used instead of Stack, another error occurs: github.com/bos/aeson/issues/64

Reposting as public:

All activitypub privacy is based on trusting all other servers. I always said that this makes any expectation of true privacy on the fediverse a fantasy. You can modify a mastodon instance to publically show all incoming private posts in 2 lines of code.

Same goes for locked accounts and blocks.

just want to say that all beings with agency are welcome to make accounts here as long as they spend $5

I’ve received an email with a suggestion that should use to obtain “intrinsic value”.

The problem with such thinking is that the labour theory of value (offen associated with ) has been refuted. The work in general has no value in itself. The fact that work has been performed may provide “psychological value” for some, but there’s no real utility associated with it. More on this topic: mises.org/wire/labor-theory-va

The directive is plainly stupid and it causes big losses to the economy (the cost of programming cookie popups + the cost of wasted screen space + the cost of dismissing cookie popups). Yet there was little resistance from companies and from the society when it was introduced. It is nice to see that one company has stood up to this: nocookielaw.com/

Wczoraj ukazał się ciekawy artykuł doktora Stanisława Wójtowicza na temat finansowania nauki, teorii dóbr publicznych i efektu gapowicza: stanislawwojtowicz.pl/2018/05/

Z okazji przypominam swój upubliczniony rok temu artykuł pt. „Ordynacja spełniła swoją rolę”, napisany do… „Gazety Wyborczej” (nieopublikowany) i zawierający propozycję zmian ustrojowych:

IMO it'd be cool if major websites supported registering with .onion email - this way you could really own your email address by having complete control over the hidden service keys.

The threat of , described in Nick Bostrom’s book, poses a challenge to capitalistic thought which doesn’t seem to be widely recognized nowadays. What if machines become significantly more productive than humans in the vast majority of activities?

It is now much easier to run an node for testing purposes, as:

• It doesn’t need anymore. IPFS is an interesting technology, but it still seems to have issues with consuming too much resources: github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs/issues , which makes running it on a non-dedicated hardware problematic.
Compose can be used to start both ABCI server (written in Erlang) and ABCI client (Tendermint): gitlab.com/Ercoin/ercoin/blob/

The wallet for now supports persistence, transaction creation (for two transaction types) and communication with Tendermint, being basically functional.

Working with + is much pleasure, in particular because it allows programmer to not worry about synchronizing UI changes with state changes. I’m not aware of an analogous, well-document toolkit for desktop.

I played violent video games since I was a little kid. Mortal Kombat, Carmageddon, GTA, Blood, Soldier of Fortune - you name it, I played it.

Never felt aggressive after doing that, don't ban violent video games.

Ban #javascript, one evening of it and I want to do unspeakable things to people.

How has lost a customer:

I’ve received a renewed debit card and wanted to update it in the application. It hasn’t allowed me to remove the old card (despite it had already expired) because of it being the only payment method. I’ve then tried to add the new card first, but… the application has prohibited this because the new card has the same number as the old one.

For some time I’ve been using then (if available in a particular city).

At first I thought this was an #aprilfoolsday prank, but it actually is real. Cloudflare made their own DNS resolver called 1.1.1.1: blog.cloudflare.com/announcing

#Google removes #Kodi from search autocomplete in anti-piracy effort - the article state "But, while Kodi is legal software, it remains a space that enables piracy, akin to platforms like BitTorrent."... Yes, like any general purpose computer. 🙄 theverge.com/2018/3/29/1717689

#introductions. Hello bsd.network! I have been using #OpenBSD on my personal servers since version 5.5 after running Linux for a long time.

I enjoy using #BSD's because they are well crafted, documented, and are licensed under terms I actually understand.

I'm a lecturer in computer science at a university of applied science where I teach a broad range of topics from programming to networking to artificial intelligence.

Remnants of are being removed from Polish ebook market. The last big bookstore removes all DRM-protected from its offer, describing this technology as cumbersome. If a publisher insists on using DRM, then its books will not be sold at all.
