Do you want to upload a large file on the go, but your internet connection isn't good enough? Let your server grab the file directly using its own internet connection!


Was watching a great talk on Signal trending on HN today. Was pleasantly surprised that the speaker really valued an open system and federation!

Something about his username was familiar... Took ~5min for me to realize it was @rysiek! Excellent presentation my good sir!

"$WEBSITE is better on the app!!" says website whose app is only "better" in the sense that it does not have popups telling you it is better on the app

ufw (a firewall) uses rule numbers when you want to, say, delete a rule. Does it display the rule numbers when you list them with ufw status?

No, of course not, that would be too easy (you’d win the game right away, where’s the fun in that?)

So, instead you have to type ufw status numbered.

Remember kids, beautiful defaults are for newbs and losers. Real gamers play in hard mode.

Bund.de is the official German government portal for doing government-related paperwork online.

They have now created their own Mastodon instance at social.bund.de which contains some official accounts. You can find them on the instance's directory page:

➡️ social.bund.de/explore (in German)

This is a really promising sign! The Fediverse can allow citizens to interact with public officials without having to give away personal data.

Was recently reflecting on this excellent piece by @jgoerzen comparing and contrasting p2p/federated/centralized systems: changelog.complete.org/archive

The drawbacks for p2p and centralized systems seem to be mostly inherent to the technical requirements necessary for things to function.

The downsides of federation are more practical (who/how deploys and maintains the servers). Good reminder that organizational structures like technical "communes" need more emphasis!
