I'm real glad capitalism is taking on the big problems, like "how to get ladies to buy more cheese powder-crusted tortilla chips"
This might just get me back to Firefox:
"Mozilla has always been a proponent of #decentralization, recognizing that it is a key ingredient of a healthy Internet. Starting with Firefox 59, several protocols that support decentralized architectures are available for use by extensions. The newly approved protocols are:
Dat Project (dat://)
IPFS (dweb:// ipfs:// ipns://)
Secure Scuttlebutt (ssb://)"
not to beat this dead horse again, but: 2 word processors, 5 document viewers, two calendars, a geocaching tool, a spreadsheet app, a fax (?) utility, a GUI for... something, something for radiation therapy, a dictionary, and a tool for making phone calls.
Seriously. Really. And this is at the very top of the category.
Like, does this make any sense? Who do I ask to use their brain for several tens of seconds?
#Sourcegraph, (the code search tool), now supports #rustlang - https://sourcegraph.com/search?q=repogroup:crates+read_dir - so excited, it will be SO much easier to find usage examples for various APIs now.
Nice article by @nextcloud folks about their current and future ActivityPub support! (Or is it ActivityPup? Don't fix that... cutest typo of all time!) https://nextcloud.com/blog/activitypub-the-new-standard-for-decentralized-networks/

@cypnk @cacahuatl The pilot wave theory of quantum mechanics is legitimately cool stuff. It's a hidden variable theory, and I think those are pretty passé right now in quantum physics, but it's at least more understandable than the nondeterministic theories. And the "materialized pilot wave" videos are really cool:
One great thing about having your resume on Michigan Talent Connect is you get to find out all of the myriad ways that your past experience might align with whatever a recruiter is trying to fill.
For example, my past experience as a mostly indoors computer programmer with system administration experience might align with TruGreen, a fertilizer company.
Though on retrospect perhaps they are right: I seem to be an expert in bullshit.
So hosting this instance on #centos was the first real attempt to try an "enterprise-grade" distro, (as opposed to something like #archlinux), hearing from people that "Arch is too unstable for the server" and the like. Just had my #letsencrypt renewal fail, because #centos updates ovverrode the version of pyOpenSSL that it was depending on. That doesn't sound "enterprise-grade" to me.
P.S. Also, certobot's #systemd service didn't stop Nginx before complaining that port 443 is in use. 😞
I hope I can share the result with you.
I did not find much information on the licence, but if I remember correctly @Gargon

#question: To whon should I give credit and how? 🤔 ❓
To conclude this thread: please don't treat open-source maintainers as the goose who laid the golden egg. They don't owe you anything. If they tell you it's too much work to maintain some piece of functionality, either offer to maintain it yourself or support them in their decision.
