Some time ago I was unable to find a decent vector rendition of Tux, so I've drawn my own (licensed under CC-0.)

Or rather redrawn it closely based on the original drawing made in GIMP.

Dino 0.1 is released! πŸŽ‰

Dino is a secure and open-source application for decentralized messaging. It uses the XMPP (β€œJabber”) protocol and is interoperable with other XMPP clients and servers. We aim to provide an intuitive, clean and modern user interface.

Release blog post: dino.im/blog/2020/01/dino-0.1-

This is simultaneously pleasing, funny and cheesy.

β€œBut we need a backup planet in case this one is ruined!”

There is virtually nothing we β€” or the Universe β€” could do to Earth that would make it less habitable than Mars. Global warming, nuclear winter, extinction-level asteroid... still easier to live in caves here than there.

During #36C3 #prosody devs created a module that would allow your #XMPP server to expose some #nodeinfo2 statistics to the-federation.info. This contributes to a better understanding of the size of #XMPP based federated services. After a week there are already 49 nodes with a little less than 470k registered users (0.1 MAU ratio).

The module:

The stats so far:

Sonos states on their website that "sustainability is non-negotiable," and that they design products to minimize impact, but I work at an e-waste recycler and have demonstrable proof this is false.

Sonos's "recycle mode" intentionally bricks good devices so they can't be reused.

Thanks to @Thib support for #XMPP URIs got merged into mastodon a few days ago. This should make linking to external discussion channels and moving a conversation to a E2E encrypted chat a bit easier on the fediverse:

I see more genuine smiles in 5 weeks in South Africa than I see in an entire year in Germany.

I'm not saying this to bash Germans, but to express appreciation to South Africans, who despite hardship are some of the most friendly and welcoming people on earth (perhaps a close second to Brazillians).

@Google@twitter.com Update on my struggle to get my emails delivered to Gmail.

Based on a tip from @ij, I've configured Postfix to use IPv4 when sending to Gmail.

Since then I've successfully sent two emails to Gmail addresses.

Fingers crossed that this fixes it for good.

Design FAIL

The bathroom door of the hotel we're staying in doesn't have a lock or a latchbolt.

So of course my 1 year old will come waltzing in while I'm taking a shit.
