The last contribution to #Signal's server software was on April 22, 2020. Due to the sudden commit drop to literally 0 it is no longer possible to seriously call current Signal versions fully open-source.

That has no effect on the messenger's end-to-end encryption or its overall security but it does compromise the trust in the Signal Foundation, especially when considering that they did not give any reason for not disclosing the source code.

No one can decrypt a Threema message except the intended recipient. However: On our website, there’s a special message anyone can decrypt. threema.ch 🐇

Ich habe mein IKEA Bekant-Stehpult mit einem Megadesk-Controller aufgerüstet! Damit können Positionen gespeichert und wieder abgerufen werden.

Falls Bastler unter euch sind, die das gerne nachbauen würden: Ich hätte noch etwa 5 Kits für 12 CHF übrig.

@daniel_bohrer @winniehell yeah, my toot was meant in an ironic way 🙂 I own an expensive espresso machine, but frequently drink aeropress, bialetti or instant coffee as well.

@vimja @hieronymus i finde de Urnegang no cool. Git irgendwie viel meh s Gfüeu vomeme "formale Akt" als via Brief 🙂

@winniehell @daniel_bohrer ACTUALLY, the only correct way to "create" coffee is by running 92-94°C hot water at 9 bars of pressure through a puck of finely but uniformly ground coffee beans over a duration of 20-30 seconds! 🤓🇮🇹

@zem @linuxpaule @kuketzblog what do you use right now?

And what would be your main reason to have "open source server" as a requirement? Security? Trust? Verifiability? Self-hosting?

Nutzt du für Videocalls immer noch Zoom oder Skype? Wir bieten seit längerer Zeit eine öffentliche Jitsi-Instanz an, diese darf frei und ohne Registrierung verwendet werden! Mehr Details findest du unter coredump.ch/jitsi/

@lx (even on telegram, where everything is stored on the cloud, I hate it if someone sends me an uncompressed 300 MiB 20 second 4K video of their cat snoring that would easily fit in a 3 MiB 720p clip...)

@lx your contacts with a 3 year old phone that has 500 MiB of storage left will probably not appreciate receiving 250 MiB video files... if you want to share video files in original quality, why not upload them to a place that allows streaming the content?

@daniel_bohrer In der Schweiz ist die SBB verpflichtet, vor der automatischen Verlängerung zwei Erinnerungsmails zu senden 🙂

Unser Things Network LoRaWAN-Gateway ist seit einer Weile tot, daher waren heute Wartungsarbeiten angesagt. Wie befürchtet ist die SD-Karte defekt. Wir werden sie bald ersetzen, damit Rapperswil wieder gute TTN LoRaWAN-Abdeckung hat!

(Zum Glück hat's auf dem Dach Abwärme von der Lüftung, sonst wäre der Gateway eingeschneit 😂)
