Re: builds.sr.ht for paid users only 4 days ago

From Sol Fisher Romanoff to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

I do remember this being mentioned off-handedly in the Mumble call:
you could see the credit card credentials of banned users and blacklist them, so
they can't create a new account and pay again.

I think this might be a great solution for enforcing bans in general, not just
for cryptominers, and I won't be surprised if this policy's already in action.

Re: builds.sr.ht for paid users only 4 days ago

From Sol Fisher Romanoff to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

From what I can gather (both from the docs and previous discussions on the list), the different "tiers" are not going to come with more or less features. The option to pay more is there to help those who can't pay.

What happened to the cmpwn.com Mastodon server? 5 days ago

The last mention I could find of it is an embed in the "Spamtoberfest" 
blog post. Did you move your account somewhere else? Did you just
decide to quit Mastodon?

Re: Is there any interest in sr.ht merchandise? 6 days ago

From Sol Fisher Romanoff to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

Following today's sr.ht-announce post [1], if you do decide to make some
merchandise, may I suggest having a shirt with a Gentoo penguin from the
Falkland Islands? I have fallen in love with them already.

The first frame of this [2] video might make for a nice design!

Re: Include Mailpile 7 days ago

From Sol Fisher Romanoff to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

It'd be great if you could make the changes yourself and submit a patch!
I bet Drew will be more inclined to accept it instead of finding
information about an email client he doesn't use.

At some point, macOS Mail was changed to Apple Mail, but its position

Re: Signal and crypto 13 days ago

Whoops, forgot to add link to repo.

Re: Signal and crypto 13 days ago

From Sol Fisher Romanoff to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

Signal has finally pushed their updated server source code to GitHub
[1], after a *whole year* of no updates, which made me think:

What if we fork Signal's older source code and repurpose it into a
separate federated system? Up until now, the app has been relatively
light in functionality, with the most "bloat" feature probably being
Stickers or Reactions, so I'd argue it's a relatively good starting
point.

And even if Moxie is known to be hostile towards third-party
clients and implementations, who cares? We could leave Signal alone.

Does that seem feasible, or even possible? I have no experience or
knowledge in server and app development, so I'd love to know whether the

I don't really think this deserves its own paragraph,
since it's a more complex decision than "Use this!",
but it is a useful resource nonetheless.
