HALT AND CATCH FIRE SYLLABUS 🔥

This has been on my mind for a long time, and now it's a real thing!

Seeing a lot of people moving to Signal the last few days. Started messaging my Whatsapp contacts with this gentle-shaming template. Let's see how well it works:

Hey I'm moving as many conversations as possible to Signal before Whatsapp starts sharing all its data with the rest of Facebook at the end of the month. Install it here if you like: signal.org/

I'm probably going to have to keep Whatsapp anyway. So it's your choice if you want to stay behind with the boomers and school parent groups. 😉

CryptPad v3.25.1 loads your drive and documents from a local cache when available, letting you view a read-only copy while updates are still loading from the server.

This is a big step towards using CryptPad while fully offline!
