I'm a #Python developer, I'm legally required to sing the Flying Circus intro whenever somebody says "And now, for something completely different".

Totally agree with a HN comment:
When Google shut down Revolv hubs in 2016, [Home Assistant] posted rationale about why your hub should be open and local (home-assistant.io/blog/2016/04 ). This kind of move further justifies the argument.

As big companies clamor over access to your home, let's take a stand by demanding open standards, local data options, and local control.

I've only seen the first season of GoT, but I finished the ASoIaF books.

I've read some criticisms of the last season, and this only makes me more eager to read the ending GRRM has thought up and presumably communicated the big lines to the show runners from: I can see a very good story in there, but they mangled it up in a typical Hollywood fashion apparently.

Now if only he could actually finish it before dying, that would be great. WoT had a great ending thanks to Sanderson,but that's hard

@Chocobozzz Salut, dans la doc PeerTube un exemple de code en Python et Ruby utilise un POST au lieu d'un GET, ça m'a fait douter mes capacités pendant un petit temps quand j'arrivais pas à le faire marcher 😆 docs.joinpeertube.org/api.html

Apparently you can get an .xyz domain for .99$ a year if it's of a certain format, namely 6 to 9 digits. Pretty cool! Do you guys now of any other domains at that pricepoint? (where you actually have control over it I mean, not like .tk and similar where you just are allowed to use it)

Are you not feeling motivated to go outside for a healthy walk? How about downloading the application StreetComplete from @fdroidorg and start helping out OpenStreetMap by adding missing data about the places around you!

I started today and it made my daily walks a lot more fun! It also motivates me to walk even more and visit new places that I wouldn't visit otherwise. :)

How hard would it be to get WebTorrent to work in libtorrent? Probably need to read up on WebRTC and such...

It's a necessary step to get PeerTube to work better in the future (with peering between a potential desktop app and the web clients)

I disagree with people saying that Facebook should be more careful with people's data to avoid more CA-type events.

They shouldn't have to be careful because they shouldn't have the data in the first place - and it should be illegal to collect such data.

I currently use my registrar's email hosting, which is fine but obviously not self-hosted (I have trust enough in them, they really use the right language, are located in the right place, etc). I don't want to have to deal with the deliverability stuff though...

So I was thinking, maybe I can host the receiving part, but still send mail through my registrar somehow? Would that work? Would it be possible to make other mailservers send their email to me directly or?

Will the closing of the Nest API impact ? Just another reminder to not buy any Internet of Stings devices, and only use ethical ones that have only Free Software and/or don't talk to the internet but just to your FOSS controller...

A. Privacy is not a good, it is a human right

B. Google is a surveillance capitalist; its business model is diametrically opposed to respecting privacy

C. Google protects *their* information, not yours, because that’s what your information becomes once they have it: their asset

Yes, @mozilla makes mistakes (same as the rest of us humans). And yes, their last one was ugly. But, still, they're the only ones in the browser business trying to do the right thing. So I'll keep using Firefox, Focus, Send, and the rest of cool software they produce.
