Was having issues with Wireguard on NixOS, and was able to troubleshoot and then solve it pretty fast. Far faster than forum posts (although, forums are awesome too)!

Man, IRC/Matrix rooms are a blessing. Such a great way to get help with whatever you are doing.

After @karan’s toot with the article with PGP problems, I was inspired to write about Signify for Days 6 of

Hi folks! 9 years ago (to the day), the late Aaron Swartz made the first commit to SecureDrop, which was then called DeadDrop. Today the project is used by >70 media orgs around the world.

It's an open source whistleblower submission platform that uses the Tor network to protect source anonymity. We're also working on a next-generation integrated workstation for journalists based on Qubes OS:

We're happy to be here!

Man NixOS :nixos: is really starting to grow on me. The declarative configuration.nix file (with modularity, of course) is incredible. Definitely going to explore it more.

Script to install full-fat desktop Fedora on your : github.com/nikhiljha/pp-fedora

Needs ~10-16GB of free space on your pinephone and computer since it's using rawhide. PLEASE visually inspect everything before running- it's barely tested and assumes a lot of things.

Take it more as an example of how to install a desktop OS on your pinephone than a finished product.

Hey everyone,

Haven’t tooted in a while, but I just published my first post on my blog 🎉

>elementary OS sucks

Aww, I'm sorry you feel that way, can you explain what you didn't like and maybe we can improve it?

>I want to fundamentally change how the entire OS works and throw all your design work out of the window and it's not as easy as I'd like.

1. That DRM systems don't work

2. That DRM systems are bad for society

5. That DRM is a bad business-move

Sometimes, the moonlight will:
- draw a footpath on the water. If you walk it, it will cut you. Dance.
- forge a sword on the rocks. If you can pick it up, you'll know what to do.
- leave a ribbon for your lover's hair. If you tie it on, they can untie it.
- simply shine. On you.
