It's finally here, teasing is over:

I'm excited to launch #keyoxide today!

#FOSS solution for easy encryption, signature verification and decentralized identity proofs!

I've been in favor of #DeleteKeybase but I never had something to offer as an alternative. Now I do :)

There's a good bet that soon SSL will be fully required by major browsers. This is good for security, but it's also symbolic:

Now you need someone's permission to put up a web server.

Now, LetsEncrypt is great and grants SSL certs freely. But what if they go away?

The lack of about:config equivalent in Chromium or really any way to disable privacy-sensitive APIs makes it a threat to your privacy even if you manage to completely "degooglify" it.

TIL BoltDB uses unsafe.Pointer internally. You can tell how I did so.

Do not use it in production.

Go(lang) is one of few compiled programming languages where mutation testing is a viable strategy.

It is a big shame the only existing tool for it was left unmaintained.

I liked Caddy v1, but v2 is annoying in a number of ways:

- TLS for localhost by default? Really? Who cares? Why do you want to install a CA on my machine?
- No reload on SIGUSR1? Is this feature _that_ complicated?
- Why would you nuke the v1 docs from the website?

Considering changing Maddy Mail Server source code license from MIT to GPLv3.

Google has some really subtle tactics to sabotage non-Chrome browsers. In this case, you can't download images with Firefox, but you can with Chrome.

My main website is on HTTPS now
I hate it, because it means using LetsEncrypt, but it's clear to me that LE has ruined any will to fix the CA system and instead spof the whole internet on a single nonprofit is 5 years old, has a company backing its development and a large community. Yet, I see half-assed clients, servers with RAM lust and heavyweight protocol. How hard can it be? And now we (Project Hexanet) are relying on self-hosted IRC for communication, ffs.....

Why Mastodon and the fediverse are “doomed to fail”

-> a small rant about how the profit lens distorts our understanding of success vs. failure:

Remember, there is a generation that don't see nothing wrong here.

Seems to be a partial outage. Only from some locations there is no A record.
