To put it quite simply, the problems with the world today that is clearly the solution to are so blatantly obvious that if you haven't done your homework and bought some bitcoin, I don’t have the time to try to convince you, sorry.

A top FBI official has *admitted* in a little-noticed comment -- part of a documentary about an FBI attempt to entrap "terrorists" in 2009 -- that the FBI needs constant terror threats and plots to keep fear levels high and its own power unquestioned. Look:

Mixed Vaccines (AKA Modernizer) Not Recognized: Travelers Could Receive a Third Dose

Details for the “extra dose”

Could be given to people whose “mixed” vaccination isn’t recognized in the country of destination.
Doesn’t increase protection against the virus.
Could cause undesireable effects (more frequent and more important).
No proof of foreign trip is necessary.
THERE ARE NO STUDIES THAT MEASURE THE IMPACT OF THAT EXTRA DOSE.
Minimum delay of 4 weeks after the second dose.

Pretty safe to say that @ErikVoorhees day is Runed

"I lost the code in a hard drive crash"... the old 1990s excuse, which was so often true. I feel utterly spoiled by the reliable hard drives, tape backup and ZFS arrays we have today.

JPMorgan financial advisors will have the green light to accept and execute only client-requested #bitcoin trades, meaning advisors can't recommend the investment themselves.

Incredibly exciting to get official confirmation that Germany's health service (@gematik1@twitter.com) has standardised on Matrix for secure decentralised communications, targeting all 150,000 healthcare organisations in Germany(!!!) 🤯 Read all about it at matrix.org/blog/2021/07/21/ger 💉🇩🇪🚀

"How come I'm not getting any hash rate, the miners are on" 🤣

This MFer finally paid the electric bill and then tried running just his miners. That cheeky MF. I set them up so none of us could hose each other like that. They either all run, or none can. They can power on but the data relay switches are set up in a way that requires the entire circuit to be powered to all miners. I planned this shit out so there couldn't or wouldn't be any funny business or arguments about $. He just proved why.

Feeling like we’re due for another Twitter censorship scare sending people back this way…..

linux gaming / journalism 

It's really funny watching video game journalists try to understand Linux. They never had to give a thought to Linux before, and now I've heard/seen/read, in big publications and youtube channels, people claim that linux is android, games run compatibly because it runs on a proton operating system, you can't run apps on linux, etc.

Buh bitcoin ded.

Lightning experts:

Is there a way to backup lightning channel state changes to protect against fund lose in the case of hardware failure?

I currently use this script but it only backups up the channel state when a channel opens or closes:

gist.github.com/alexbosworth/2

There doesn't appear to be a way to backup the channel state short of stopping and restarting the LND service. If my node is highly active and fails, I would have a lot of out of date channel states when trying to recover funds.

Mastodon

This server was setup as a means to decentralize the Bitcoin social networking community in a small way. I came from bitcoinhackers.org. The administrator there felt that the users should create their own Mastodon instances to keep the community decentralized so I created this instance.
