@distractedmosfet I would hope so. The issue for most libraries _I think_ is less about how to offer hosting and more about what content are users going to publish. For example how can a library protect itself from the liability and backlash of a user using its service to publish CP? What about a user publishing content supporting the "Great Replacement" theory, should the library take the content down and become censors? Or continue to host the content supporting free, if disgusting, speech?

@distractedmosfet Personally I think libraries should run search engines, host Tor nodes and host Torrents; While also providing access to computers, the internet, software development tools, and 3d printers and maybe even simple online hosting for members.

I am also willing to help any library do any of the above.

@category If you publish an RSS feed, wrote a script to scrape my old sites RSS feed and convert the content to Markdown when I converted my old site to a static site generator. I can share and with some simple changes it could convert the content to org-mode

Apparently, "military grade encryption" means "AES-512" and "AES-1024", even though there are no such definitions in the NIST standard.

Le sigh.


This is one of the best Sci-fi short stories I've read in a looong time.

Wants Pawn Term by Rich Larson : Clarkesworld Magazine – Science Fiction & Fantasy

@glynmoody "Well, happily, Ingenuity did call home after about 24 hours. According to NASA, the link was stable, and the solar array managed to charge its batteries to 41 percent. The engineers say they hope to resume Ingenuity's flight campaign within the next several days after bringing the helicopter's batteries to a full charge."


The two most toxic attitudes at work are two sides of the same coin: "that's not my job" and "I can't say no"

"that's not my job" is a complete disregard for being part of a team or an organization. No work is beneath you.

*this does not mean you have to do every task you're asked*: "I can't say no" is *also* a complete disregard for being part of a team or an org. Not everything is a good use of your time and energy 1/…

@jwildeboer I don't think it is ridiculous that we need a beginner version of Linux. For Mac and Windows the only version _is_ the bigger version. Whereas with Linux because there is a diverse ecosystem you'll find both beginner friendly distros and distros aimed at advanced or specialized users.

📢 Exit relay operators, we need you to upgrade to Tor as soon as possible! This is the first stable Tor release with support for congestion control, which will result in significant performance improvements for users. Upgrade to now.


@Mundon I am the same way, but wanted to point it out in case anyone here wasn't aware of that option

@Mundon Don't forget you can get an RSS feed for mastodon accounts too.
