Here you can find notes about things I discover or learn but are not (yet) worth a full-length post.

Since I’ve made my latests pen order, I cannot stop refreshing the tracker page. I really hope they have a cheap bandwidth plan otherwise I’ll have to apologise for the traffic 😁

It’s just sad whenever there is no new status update and still says “Item has been uploaded or label has been prepared.” 😫

Replying to Moxie Marlinspike stepping down as Signal CEO (…)

I will continue to remain on the Signal board, committed to helping manifest Signal’s mission from that role, and I will be transitioning out as CEO over the next month in order to focus on the candidate search. Brian Acton, who is also on the Signal Foundation board, has volunteered to serve as interim CEO during the search period.

A big “THANK YOU” for everything you and your team have achieved in the last years. Signal has grown into an essential part of how I communicate with others and the world would be definitely a worse place without it!

At this point everyone is fully bought in to the idea that the log4j team must urgently fix this because everyone is relying on them. There’s not even a question about doing otherwise. Why? Again–because we have this pervasive open source mythology that open source is about open community, governance, security, and all those nice-sounding ideas.

Replying to Re: Dracula met tmux (…)

Sure 😅 I was just a bit shocked that tmux also has one. For some reason I just always think of it as a rather small tool but, sure, it has so much functionality and scriptability inside of it that it makes sense to also have plugins which need to be managed.
