I'm currently rewriting Fragments in Rust with a completely new network-oriented architecture.

To follow the development, it's the perfect time to join the Matrix room!

Just a reminder that by this day the Luca app still only uses 1(!) Daily Keypair[1] for all data of a day. Their security concept doesn't even account for that. Therefore guarantees like mentioned in the screenshot below are completely void and can not be fulfilled since the keypair is controlled by the luca server.

(Feel free to correct if I got anything wrong here)

I made a thing! I like #pixelflut, and so I wrote a pixelflut server that can operate remotely and headless. It will stream to any rtmp server, so you can invite other people!

Thought experiment: When chromium-based forks would take over Chrome's market share and Google would therefore decide to kill-off the project (I know, they would never kill off a project :blobfoxwinkmlem:), how many of these browsers would survive in the long term?

Reminder that Brave is Bullshit 

> As soon as I figure out how to detect the Brave web browser by technological means—a task you’re deliberately making difficult, because you know that many publishers would like to do the same—I will make sure that every Brave visitor gets this as their landing page.

And it's done! A 💯% legitimate implementation of Google's FLoC standard for Firefox in an extension:

git.shivering-isles.com/sheogo

Finally we can have this awesome private ad company gift in a browser that is not chromium based!

And of course it's a completely serious and not at all satirical/sarcastic implementation. I swear!

Oh no! I'm so floced!

Needed to set my User-Agent to chromium for the scanner test to actually try it, but here we go. My extension works! And the best part, I'm in a new cohort on every page reload.

Finally I can use FLoC in Firefox! 🤡

Whoops, the repository wasn't set to public yet. That's fixed now!

Enjoy!

I am happy to reveal that a non-profit legal entity for Mastodon, Mastodon gGmbH, is in the process of being entered into the German company register.

For context, I have been operating as a sole proprietor so far.

It's been in the works for 8 months but I didn't want to announce anything until everything was finalized just in case it didn't work out. Yesterday, I paid in the starting capital.

It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.

Einchecken mit #CCTG: Version 2.0.3.0 ist jetzt als automatisches Update in unserem Repository verfügbar!

Das Update beinhaltet nicht nur die lang ersehnte Check-In-Funktion, mit der man über QR-Codes bei Veranstaltungen und Orten einchecken kann, sondern reduziert auch die Größe der Installationsdatei um mehr als 10 Megabyte, behebt verbleibende visuelle Bugs auf Android 5, und warnt auf dem Hauptbildschirm über fälschlicherweise aktivierte Batterieoptimierungen.

@lfdi Um das Ganze nochmal klarer zu machen: Die Möglichkeit falscher Angaben führt bei der Luca-App zur Beweisumkehr. Denn die Luca-App wird hier ja quasi als Beweis für meine Anwesenheit ins Feld geführt. Dem gegenüber stehen die Papierlisten. Bei den Papierlisten kann ich den Beweis über die Handschrift fordern.

Bei der Luca-App muss ich beweisen, dass ich nicht da war, z.B. durch einen Zeugen.

Es ist also keineswegs unproblematisch.
