@arh
Too bad secretly hid their implementation from the world for the past year, or it would have turned out like the recent commit that's some BS. Signal can not be trusted anymore.

Out of my least techy friends, the ones who have the best practices online are the ones most worried about getting viruses and malware. I guess thats why they have better practices. Fear. The ones who dont care are just doing all kinds of horrible crap.

I love the sound of bullfrogs croaking outside the house at night. Sounds like... Home. 😌

Making to-do lists helps me remember to do little things that I usually forget otherwise, and it also helps me get more done, and feel more accomplished at the end of the day. Write more to-do lists!

Where can i get things 3D printed and shipped online? Maybe even customized a little? I found something on thingiverse and need to make a slight mod to it and print it.

A relative of mine accidentally signed up for 8x8 (the company providing meet.jit.si for free and paid corporate Jitsi plans). 8x8 billed them multiple times, in spite of calls and emails for help. My relative was unable to get a refund and ultimately had to cancel a credit card so 8x8 would stop billing. Does anyone have connections with 8x8 that could perhaps help me help my relative get some actual help?

Going more private has a lot of old school attitude.

Don't use credit cards, use cash (of course no Apple Pay etc.). Don't use google maps, learn where you need to go and figure it out like you did a decade ago. Don't listen to streaming music, listen to music you downloaded.

What would you do if there was no big tech companies to hold your hand? Will you be lost?

Any amateur/ham radio enthusiasts out there? Been thinking about dabbling in it as a hobby and for disasters, etc.

I sent an email over to the good folks at #syphon and asked when session verification and cross-signing sessions would be coming. They said that feature is under development an should come soon.

"Verification (& Cross Signing) is currently in the works and is the next feature slotted for release."

Reminder of why #Signal is far from optimal:

- No #anonymity (every account is connected to a phone number)
- Not #opensource (the git repo of the server hasn't been updated in a year)
- No #decentralization
- No web client, and max. 1 mobile client per account
- No #privacy (your entire contact list is uploaded to the server. It's encrypted, but it's trivial to brute-force encrypted phone numbers. You can prevent it by disabling the PIN feature, but it's enabled by default without warning.)
