Republicans now control the US Senate, Presidency, and Supreme Court despite not winning a national election since 2014 (and not a high-turnout one since 2004).

I won't be forgetting this for a long time anyway, but to do this "own the libs" bullshit on top of it *from the official Twitter account* is hardening my resolve even further. Everything @DavMicRot said...


Philippine president's top science and technology official says vaccine would be available at the earliest in mid-2021.

In Tschechien gilt ab Mittwoch eine nächtliche Ausgangssperre. In der Slowakei soll in den kommenden zwei Wochen fast das ganze Volk getestet werden. Alle Entwicklungen im Liveblog.

Waren, die in der EU verkauft werden, müssen sicher sein: Dafür sorgen Richtlinien. Doch diese stammen von 2001 - aus einer Zeit, in der es viele Produkte von heute noch gar nicht gab. Zeit für eine Reform. Von Matthias Reiche.

Bayer 04 feiert in der Fußball-Bundesliga gegen Augsburg den zweiten Sieg in Folge. Die Leverkusener springen damit auf Rang vier. Eine entscheidende Rolle beim Sieg der Werkself spielte Lucas Alario.

WHO chief acknowledges 'fatigue', but says distancing, masks vital to avoid return to strict lockdowns.

There is no legitimacy to the Courts. Expanding the Courts will not make it any more legitimate, or non-partisan, but it will be make it less of a radical right-wing, hell-bent on creating a permanent minority-white rule while inflicting pain & suffering on the majority of US.

We should be extremely worried that Kavanaugh would use this Trumpian rhetoric to describe counting ballots that arrive after Election Day. 18 states and DC count these ballots. Does Kavanaugh think that creates "chaos and suspicions of impropriety"?

Mitch, every word you say here will be true for Democrats whenever they control the Senate and White House. In our constitutional republic, that includes changing the size of the the Court as did Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, and Grant.

Three weeks ago, # # went into beta!
> We’re very excited to announce that Dendrite, the next-generation Matrix homeserver from the core Matrix team, is at last exiting alpha development and entering beta testing!

> The path we’ve taken to get here has been quite a curious one, and it’s worth recapping to give context on why it’s taken reality a little while to catch up with the dream. 😀
It is of particular interest to me that the Matrix people started off writing Dendron to replace Synapse using the Strangler Pattern, but then, and they provide a primary reason why, switched to doing a full rewrite with Dendrite.

@Claes Wallin 🇸🇪🇭🇰 it's sad it failed. I wonder if they made the adapters right. Although I can totally see it being a painful and complicated task.
@Claes Wallin 🇸🇪🇭🇰 I guess the strangler pattern is better for change of technology rather than change of architecture.
Last week, they released 0.2.0:
> Now would be a great time for more intrepid explorers to try spinning up a server from and see how it feels - the more feedback the better. And if you got scared off by weird bugs in 0.1.0, now's the right time to try it again!

Delta Chat is a secure instant messenger app with no central account as it transparently uses encrypted mails via your existing mail account so everyone is potentially a user

This is a really interesting concept to have an open source native app running on Android, iOS, MacOS, Windows or Linux which does not require any central registration or account. Just about everyone has an e-mail account onlne so theoretically everyone is reachable with this app unlike Whatsapp only sending to other Whatsapp users.

The messages are encrypted with Autocrypt Level 1 standard and can thus E2E-encrypt messages with other Autocrypt-capable apps. There is a way to even use your existing PGP encryption key, as well as to use it across multiple devices. They answer many potential questions in their FAQ on their website.

It also only shows your actual app contacts so you won't suddenly be flooded with e-mails inside the app.

Ive always felt that Delta chat was highly underated. It's good to see someone is promoting it.

Gliding, even poor gliding, makes sense. It lets you go out and get stuff that's floating around in the air and it gives you a great way to escape predators in your tree. Even flying squirrels can glide a little.


A good video explaining some insights about using a de-Googled phone as a daily driver

What is it actually like to use a de-Googled phone as a daily driver? Will it feel like you became a Luddite or a cave man eschewing tech? Is it actually usable? What apps can you run? What about navigation? Will you survive without Google? Does it change how the cell phone works? Does it affect the battery? Do we need to change habits to keep privacy with a de-Googled phone? Do I lose privacy when I log on to another app?

This video discusses the actual real life experience of using Android Open Source Project (AOSP) on a phone without GAPPS (Google Apps). It will discuss what's possible and what the expected limitations are.

Chuck Schumer: "You may win this vote... But you will never, ever, get your credibility back. And the next time the American people give Democrats a majority in this chamber, you will have forfeited your right to tell us how to run that majority."

“The Republican political project has gone beyond shaping policy to rigging the electorate,” @AdamSerwer writes, adding that Democrats are left with only one option after Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to defend our rights and democracy: pack the court.

McConnell: "Ruth Bader Ginsburg said 9 is the right number."

... RBG also decided that "2" was the right number of Black clerks over nearly 30 years on the bench. So I think it's fair to say that while she was brilliant she was also occasionally wrong.
