@proactiveservices @Hawk1291 they are pushing for ipv6 with cellural 5G and IoT devices, I can see that in 5 years everything is gonna be ipv6 just not right now

I got a little demo setup running for the FOSS learning platform thing I wanted! It's not done yet by a long shot but it works etc

Just simply WordPress like SFA.com but with a different goal!

@noellabo sounds like the majority is automatable.

Is there no project to build a masto istance monitoring tool?

Safe Network Update 30 September

This week we do a deep dive into the Merkle Register, one of the two primitive datatypes in the Safe Network (the other being immutable chunks).

The Merkle Register is a novel #crdt we’ve come up with to model mutable state. It supports concurrent writes and history traversal.

Safe Network Update 21 October, 2021

This week we look at denominations in a digital currency, why they make sense for privacy but can have negative effects on performance - and suggest a potential way forward.

Safe Network Update 4 Nov 2021

The ‘Safe’ in #SafeNetwork stands for secure access for everyone, but a Safe is also a strongbox where you can lock up your valuables. We can picture a network of Safes swimming in a sea of perpetually available information.

But what if we lose or forget our credentials? Our precious stuff could be lost forever.

There has to be a better way—and thanks to the miracle of threshold cryptography there is!

The Safe Network Primer has been updated for the first time in more than a year. Find out what #Maidsafe are doing to strip out complexity.

Update, 25 November

We’ve all agreed that this week would be a good time to look at what Safe brings to the table in terms of distributed consensus. Actually, a couple of us thought it was a rubbish idea, but a supermajority voted to press ahead, and that’s all that matters.

So, this week we explain how #safenetwork bridges the gap between #blockchain and the protocols that underlie distributed databases like Cassandra and AWS DynamoDB.

Safe Network Update 09 December

A team member gave us a demo of ring confidential transactions (Ring CT).

It was fascinating stuff, but pretty heavy on the maths, so this week we’ve got a stripped down version with the bare minimum of algebra in an attempt to give a bit of background and explain the direction we’re taking with private DBC transactions.

I have created a new #guide for #Matrix. One more tool to convince your #Discord friends to move to the greener pasture!
