I just released version 0.0.13 of

This release adds support for importing password protected private keys to a card.

Oh no some of #gitlab's own dependencies have a 1 year gap in their commit history

The first I found is seed-fu.

Don't worry gitlab, the project is hosted on github, so you won't nuke your own dep. lol

Part of our work at Endless OS is around the usability of the GNOME desktop, guided by user testing. We're looking for test subjects for a 1-hour session, who are tech-savvy experts—e.g designers/developers, animators/…—with exposure to various devices & platforms. Bonus points if you're based near someone in the team—e.g. London—so we can put a laptop in front of you. Ping me here or to if you're interested!

I documented parts of my adventures hunting for a CI system.

It does not have a satisfactory conclusion. Actually, it is very depressing.

It is also very personal, and will not help anyone else evaluate CI systems, unless they have similar requires and workflows as I do. There are a lot of CI systems out there, and I'm sure most of them are quite fine. Our goals just don't seem to match up too well.

I will describe how my ideal CI would work & look at a later time.

BTW: in case folks reading this have a cool FOSS project that needs funding, please be aware that we have a deadline for submitting these tomorrow (August 1st) noon.

Don't feel intimidated - it is really light-weight to submit something (you can do it in less than an hour if need be).

Have a look at -

A nice thing about tools that are consistent so that every operation they can do is one in the same way is that you need look less at the manual.

With inconsistent software, you need to look at the manual a lot more.

rant; home Internet routers 

dnsmasq does DNS, DHCP, and is generally speaking an almost complete solution for a "router" providing access to many machines in a local area network. By default, it automatically maintains a local DNS populated with the hostnames of DHCP clients.

It was first released in 2001. Twenty one years ago. It is solid, reliable, highly regarded free software.

In 2022, I don't know of any commercial "home routers" that use it. Instead, they just suck.

These scientists tried to grow human vocal chords in a petri dish.

The results speak by themselves.

Transparency in everything, except bathroom doors.

I just released version 0.0.12 of (plus a new version of the underlying library).

With this release, decrypt and sign operations don't need the public key material as a parameter anymore (the public key material on the card is used).

Idea I just got at out #MCH2022 session about social media:

Instance moderation as a service.

Ideally, a moderator should to be able to support themselves financially. But it's difficult for a single instance to pay a moderator enough.

So, crazy idea, maybe it would make sense to have moderators who work with and are supported by multiple instances?

This is not a well-formed idea. Just spitballing here.
