It's illegal to enter buildings in the zone as most of them are completely unstable, and due to a new zone administration there's typically no bribing your way out of a situation. Sometimes in the most unsuspecting places you may find street art left behind by a Stalker who risked arrest for something many will never see. Somewhat of a real life Easter egg, or a subtle nod to defiance: "You're not suppose to be here."

Location: Chernobyl Exclusion-zone, Ukraine. 2019.

A friend just set up a () server, and I'm in awe. Granted it's not super mature, but it's already in a good position to get that polish that I expect from mainstream projects. And those are the projects that succeed.

This feels like software I want to get behind. Find more details around donation here: snikket.org/donate/

...and find my XMPP handle in my description. Bonus points if someone can teach me to use OMEMO outside Snikket. Say, on desktop? :)

Just deleted my account.

I had announced this move weeks ago, mentioning I would be available via the usual channels (phone, email, etc.) and also via . That's it. No preaching, no convincing, no expectations.

To my surprise, more than 10% of the 100+ contacts I notified, downloaded and all my "important" contacts are now on Matrix!

I'm thrilled!

Google has suspended Element (@matrix) from the Play Store for "Sexual Content and Profanity". Basically same story as with Subway Tooter a while back. Element is to Matrix as Chrome is to the web. Curiously, Chrome is still on the Play Store.

oh my god omar.website/tabfs/

โ€œTabFS is a browser extension that mounts your browser tabs as a filesystem on your computer.โ€

โ€œNow you don't need to code up a browser extension from scratch every time you want to do anything. You can write a script that talks to your browser in, like, a melange of Python and bash, and you can save it as a single ordinary file that you can run whenever, and it's no different from scripting any other part of your computer.โ€

This is pretty amazing! An open-source video streaming service that comes with batteries included: live chat, adaptive bitrate streaming, an admin interface.

Think of it as a self-hosted Twitch alternative!

Funny thing is that people assume that tracking only happens over the web, in their browsers.

While Microsoft and company have been doing it for ages in their operating systems and office suites, many didn't think that some of the console tools they use did the same.



Here is why I am very hesitant about adopting new and flashy systems. You can't trust them.
