@fribbledom looks like some of those caps have had a bit too much thanksgiving dinner.

Have you ever met someone who can fold towels so well it makes your pile of towels look like a preschooler folded them?

Stumbled upon this blog post about the potential benefits of using different decentralized protocols in combination, e.g. #SSB, #Dat, and #ActivityPub: blog.datproject.org/2019/03/22

@darius I really love this sentiment, and it makes sense from a practical point of view as well.

For example, I ran into an issue using git-ssb where I had no real place to share releases in a decentralized way for the ssb users who I was sending it out to. I ended up using webtorrent and considered doing it over DAT but wasn't ready to dive into that stack yet and seemed like a bit of a "betrayal" of the ecosystem as some people see them as competing ecosystems.

I wrote a thing about why I believe the best and most useful decentralized applications are going to be the ones that utilize multiple protocols. I imagine a world where ActivityPub, Dat, and Secure ScuttleButt are all seen as tools in a toolbox rather than as ecosystems, and what kind of amazing software we could build with them outside of the central/corporate paradigm.

@allan so in the end, all your "colourful" language is directly aligned with the goal of "saying what you mean". You don't want to be misunderstood, and you have the capacity to avoid it using the correct words.

@allan I feel like as you continuously grow, read, and communicate in the world you find the "say what you mean" actually requires the use of specific words to convey precisely how you feel. The nuance of language becomes more apparent the more miscommunications come about in your life.

@sconlan most common practice is indeed to transmit passwords in clear text over https to the server.

then someone enables debug logging on incoming traffic behind the LB after its back in plain text.

@jonw here come the calls for impeachment

@allan @keithzg thats not a bad thought, build klout by issuing $1 purchases on the card and seeing if they get dumped. then once you have 3-4 months of purchases with no chargebacks, the cards are worth more on a market somewhere

at the very least, these cards can't be used on any Stripe powered site again and the card owners should get a little piece of mind.

Thank the jesus, stripe has bulk refunds.

Just checked stripe, $367.00 I have to go in and refund in $1-$2 donations.

Fuck
