"The Low Impact Website Manifesto"

Great site! Love when brands practice what they preach!

Wish they had a better GDPR implementation (option to say no). Or avoid the banner and reduce weight further by replacing GA with a private/light alternative.

Graphics people do you already know "ommpfritt" aka "omm"?

github.com/pasbi/ommpfritt

Pascal Bies presented this at LGM 2019 (youtu.be/KNFJ-8vR6qA) and has since been quietly slaving away on it, adding an impressive amount of features (github.com/pasbi/ommpfritt/blo). There's still quite some way to go for omm in terms of overall direction, maturity, documentation, etc., but I feel this definitely goes a bit too unnoticed for the incredible amount of development that has been happening! :)

Spent yesterday evening and today until noon trying to run GNOME under Wayland - exhausted all obvious documentation resources and failed miserably. Now it's evening, I've meanwhile done nothing further to tackle the issue, when I notice something odd: I'm running GNOME under Wayland.

The youtube-dl DMCA Takedown Notice signifies one thing: overt reliance on centralized service providers creates an inherent vulnerability for the wider community: the service provider itself.

Centralize too much, and the whole thing turns into a giant target.

Hello, I’m the reel2bits project main developper (a #FOSS self-hostable #soundcloud like with #ActivityPub federation).

It’s written in python/flask/vuejs and I need help because of health issues I’m unable to work a lot on it anymore, if you are interested to help me on some of the issues and more specially the ActivityPub part, you can contact me through:

the project matrix channel

boosts appreciated, thanks.

GPG-based, minimal password manager "sicuit" is now available on Arch Linux's AUR \o/

fdpl.io/sicuit/

I'll be looking into copy-to-clipboard functionality as well as transitioning from mostly reliable beta to officially stable in the coming weeks.

Thanks to @debian for their $10,000 contribution to the #roadmap to #PeerTube v3! <3 <3 <3
https://bits.debian.org/2020/10/debian-donation-peertube.html

With this great recognition from the Debian Project, the €60,000 to fund live in PeerTube are almost reached. To contribute: https://joinpeertube.org/roadmap/

If everything runs smoothly, fdpl.io/sicuit/ will be available from the AUR sometime in the next days - only about a day of yak-shaving ahead I'd venture. :D (nonetheless been a fun ride so far!)

Ported libeno's build system from cmake to meson today (which I'm using for the first time) and I must say I really enjoyed this. Kudos to everyone involved! (meson, ninja, et al)

C memory management question: Being a non-seasoned C developer I find myself yak-shaving (possibly obsessing) over memory management details a little more than feels healthy and productive (i.e. writing specific chunked allocation routines for many/all the different dynamic allocations in the application). Anybody happen to have a reading recommendation for me? Something like "Sane/practical memory management in tiny to small applications for aspiring C nerds" ? Grateful for any pointers! (no pun intended haha)

Saw that one-take masterpiece again today. Once again left in awe. I highly recommend to neither watch the trailer nor read an abstract beforehand.

Random report on my ongoing studies of artistic anatomy: Been keeping at it on and off. \o/ That field has a/many weird (parallel) learning curve(s). It's a lot about learning how to learn in addition to the learning itself. Also a lot about developing confidence in one's own abilities. Vaguely considering to put it in some formal context at some point (school or university) as I suspect it'll be a lot more fun with peers. Anyhow, love this and beginning to get really hooked and into the mindset, definitely staying with it. <3

fdpl.io/sicuit/ now offers a dialog for selecting the GPG key that encrypts the password store during initialization :hacker_y: :hacker_a: :hacker_y: (all builds updated already!)

Continuing with open sourcery after a little over two months of hiatus \o/ sicuit now writes temporarily decrypted files to /dev/shm or /run if available, for extra security fdpl.io/sicuit/

(Lots of love to the pass folks from where I learned the practice, reading the (open) source!)

Free and open air today in vienna: My urban game collective buddies from play:vienna are premiering their epic project of the past year(s): "Siedler von Süd-Wien"

Starting today at 16/17/18h three fictional telephone-booth-sized travel agencies in the Kabelwerk, Schöpfwerk and Alterlaa settlements offer you fantastic "touristic" adventures (audiowalks, games, sights, challenges, ...) in your own city.

I've had the pleasure to beta-test over 30 of these adventures on 3 days/evenings and I can say that coming back home after a day of these felt pleasantly like coming home from a beautiful vacation.

See you there today, or on any other day until the end of october!
