Okay, I think I need some help. I legitimately can't tell if this article is a joke or not. Can any Aussies help me out? https://www.news.com.au/national/politics/tony-abbott-photographed-maskless-in-sydney/news-story/704c3b120dbb42c55de5b21405478636
Thanks to some help from the Mozilla bugzilla I was able to use old WIP patches to bring support for mozjs-60 (spidermonkey) to riscv64 on #guix.
@manyver_se Hey, are your F-Droid builds still working? My client thinks you haven't released since October last year, which seems at odds with your recent posts about releases.
So I was playing with a new toy, a keychain with a little e-ink display in it. Both powered and configured by NFC, I can configure it to display any image I want, as long as the resolution is low and it is only in white, black, and red. Until just now I wasn't sure what I wanted to load on it, though. Something practical, y'know?
#GNU #Guile 3.0.7 was released today! 🎉

I'm looking to host a #matrix server for a short-lived event (~3 days), and have a requirement that I (the server admin) be able to read any message that's sent. This means that E2EE must not be used.
I've found https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/4367, https://github.com/vector-im/riot-web/issues/8067, and https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/issues/4401 which seem to imply that it's difficult to completely disable E2EE in Synapse/Element at the moment.
Does anyone know of a way that I can do this that's less hacky than the patches posted in #4367?
I managed to build a fully bootstrapped package with the #maven build system I'm creating for #guix now! I'm still missing a component for the installation, and the package is only a parent pom that requires only the enforcer plugin. I'll focus on the install plugin now, so I can actually install the package. Next will be an actual package, probably.
Are you interested in how to bring secure, private, peer-to-peer distributable content to the fediverse that can survive nodes going down? I've finished writing the documentation for the #Spritely Golem demo which explains how to do just that: https://gitlab.com/spritely/golem/blob/master/README.org
It also includes a running, workable demo which you can try yourself. Please do and let me know your thoughts!
