#nameandfame Friday: hastebin! #opensource alternative to pastebin and easily self-hostable through #docker


One thing I heard in the Democrat debates last night that interested me was one candidate's proposal to provide credits to stay-at-home parents (they said mothers, but...yeah) to compensate/reward them for the labor that (presumably) they provide to the household. This is a fascinating proposal because it's been an issue in #economics that household labor isn't commonly accounted for in most economic models. One of my favorite papers ever is about this.

#GPA (#GNU #Privacy Assistant) is GUI for #GnuPG.

GPA simplifies many privacy tasks, like key management, signing, verification, and more. GPA features an easy file selector and scratchpad for making signed and encrypted messages or files for quick sending. GPA also has a simple dialog for managing OpenPGP cards/physical encryption keys.

Giving the new XFCE 4.14 a try in Ubuntu 19.10. So far it feels really good - a couple bugs with theming and suspend/resume but that's to be expected.

I've been waiting for this release for a long while so I could ditch Gnome on my HiDPI laptop, and I think this will do the trick!

This is something @Ben_Cates@twitter.com kinda drilled into my head as senior web engineer at System76: it might not be your fault, but it is definitely your problem.

It sucks, but it’s true so often. 😭

RT @vanschneider@twitter.com

@CassidyJames@twitter.com Totally not your fault. But totally your problem now too (as smart oven manufacturer).

Anyone know of a good alternative to Mastodon for peer-to-peer activity pub? I found this list, but wondering if anyone knows if one is better than another... I'd like to experiment with running my own server, but Mastodon honestly looks pretty bloated.

Been busy the last week or so...

Turns out newborn babies are exhausting!

The issue with the upcoming regarding the citizenship question is overblown.

There are only *two* things that *must* be answered on the census form: The physical address in question (which is usually pre-filled), and the number of alive & born humans in the address on April 1st.

All other questions are optional.

We let our kale, leeks, and carrots winter - got a pretty good haul when prepping the beds this year!

I have transcended to beyond Evil: I just asked nonchalantly what happens to data when a container fails during a transaction.

Then asked how data consistency is preserved during deployment.

The silence is deafening.

Systems design and programming is not an amateur activity.

Hey guys just wanted to let everybody know that letschatlinux.com has moved to freenode at . Come and join us!

The longer I go without logging into Twitter and Facebook, the better I feel.

@Loonie You should post pictures from your road trip as you go :)

Mastodon is ultimately my replacement for following Linux devs and enthusiasts - that's ultimately what I used Google+ for. Here are a few more accounts that I found that I think are worth following:


If you have any suggestions let me know!

I realized I've done a lot of work on Ephemeral over the past couple of months, but the announcement post doesn't mention any of it. So here's a new blog post with details of everything new in Ephemeral since last time! medium.com/@cassidyjames/major

It's always fun to see more projects saying "use our 1-line installer!" Just `curl definitelynotgonnahurt.lol/bad | sudo -E bash `

Don't worry though, we used TLS, so you know it's safe!
