Well unfortunately all day today was spent at the animal ER (nearly 10 hours including driving to/from).

Though, most of the day was spent waiting on advice from an expert that was exactly the same advice as what we got in the first half hour, and what we were expecting.

I invite ALL federation developers to hop into #social on for conversations around the social Web. It's where a few discussions on #ActivityPub discussions occur.

I know that we have for this as well and I encourage the devs to use these places in conjunction to this one for conversations for historical and open discussion reasons.

@librelounge The reason we put off talking about federation and ActivityPub until a few months into the show was actually because we wanted to make sure we had enough of a feel about how to do these shows before we tackled a topic that's so important to us. I feel like now's a good time though!

Surely you've been wondering, when on earth is @librelounge going to talk about ActivityPub? Especially since I'm co-host and that's a major part of my work!

Well, here's an episode that's *entirely* about ActivityPub!

It's the second in a series about federation. There's more coming!

Continuing their discussion on federation, @cwebber and @emacsen dive into ActivityPub and how it works in the latest episode of Libre Lounge

oh no

are "just imagine if gnu were a lisp machine" and "ocaps would fix this security problem" the "bernie would have won" of computer science

is that me

It's really frustrating how much we could self-host the internet but can't because consumer ISP service is intentionally broken

"but how did I solve this problem last time"

*looks at code, half-solution that got it working but wasn't the right thing*

of course

Items in Racket's mrlib heirarchical display widget have a get-text item:

> Returns a text-editor buffer whose content is the display representation of the item. In other words, fill in this text editor to set the item’s label.

you know it's hardcore when your tree view widget items can each be their own text editor structure

I'm getting phishing emails pretending to be a spam filtering service

current status, trying to understand racket's namespace system, probably focusing on the wrong thing

Buying a new appliance that doesn't have internet-of-shit stuff embedded in it is becoming hard (soon it will be for used things too)

This is especially odd when looking at say, buying a microwave, which can normally act as a makeshift faraday cage. Sorry, I need to wrap my faraday cage in a faraday cage kthx

Creating Languages in Racket is very on-topic:

Making a language for writing a text adventure? Oh heck yeah.

> After a long disclosure process we release , a transient execution attack that uses port contention as a side channel (instead of caches) to leak register/memory data. Details: paper: PoC:


Let me break that down for you: it's similar to Meltdown/Spectre but uses a technique that doesn't involve evaluating "untrusted code".

@cwebber this is a real thing called reinsurance because everything is terrible
