A joyous quote from Anathem copyright 2008.

> “Yes—a technical term. So crap filtering became important. Businesses were built around it. Some of those businesses came up with a clever plan to make more money: they poisoned the well. They began to put crap on the Reticulum deliberately, forcing people to use their products to filter that crap back out. They created syndevs whose sole purpose was to spew crap into the Reticulum. But it had to be good crap.”

Looks like I need to decouple inbox processing from reception. The easy thing was to just fetch attachments and save messages as received. But some remote servers are slow, which causes my proxy to think the request has timed out. Damn ActivityPub making me gradually implement things correctly.

When signing certificates with an RSA key, default to using the rsa-sha2-512 signature algorithm. Certificates signed by RSA keys will therefore be incompatible with OpenSSH < 7.2 unless the default is overridden.

@lanodan can you confirm if pleroma actually tries to fetch the object if it's embedded? I noticed a few weeks ago I would sometimes get announces where the object was an object instead of a link, but I just save it. At the time, I didn't know what caused it, just figured more AP weirdness.

Random thought, probably not the intended lesson, from road warrior disaster recovery: putting /usr at front of disk, and / (with /etc) somewhere after that, gives you a minor buffer against wild dd appearances.

All of the text below is copied from https://twitter.com/danluu/status/1129519029192757249. Pasted here to unthread.

Since 2016, I've been thinking about how clear, informative, non-academic talks don't seem very popular.

In 2016, @garybernhardt gave a talk on reproducibility at StrangeLoop which I thought was quite good. It clearly explained a non-obvious idea and came in well under time.

Literally everyone I talked to at the conference gave the talk a lukewarm to negative review. One person even walked out.

The reason everyone told me that talk was lame was that it was so obvious there was no point in giving a talk on the idea.

This is interesting because a couple years earlier, I saw a talked that covered the same topic, wildly popular (most YT viewed talked from the conference of all time) but incomprehensible.

I didn't even know what the talk was about until I saw Gary's talk 2 years later.

After watching the wildly popular talk, I asked about twenty people at the conference if they could explain what the talk was about and how the 2nd half related to the 1st half.

Literally zero people told me they thought they understood the talk.

I kept asking about the popular talk for about a year and eventually found one person who said they understood the talk, but after talking to them at length, they couldn't explain the talk.

This talk was widely loved and is still highly cited today.

Gary's talk was so good, so clear, that everyone I talked to thought the talk was bad.

If there was more vague ranting or talking around the point instead of actually conveying the point, I suspect people would've liked the talk.

This also happens at work! A friend of mine went up for "senior staff" promo (and succeeded), but someone on the promo committee objected b/c "that could've been done by a SWE-2", as if figuring out a simple way to do something valuable makes it less valuable.

Many lessons from accessibility talk by @stsp but one key point is that unreliable software is inaccessible. e.g. If the login manager crashes, we just enter our password again. If entering passwords is difficult, however, this becomes a serious barrier.

I just had to revert @kurtm 's import of @sunil 's csrg ftp rewrite.

I know that Kurt considered working with people on it during the #g2k19 and finally getting it in a big achievement.

This does not take away from that achievement. It adds to it.
Kurt got it very widely tested and got people to look at the code and start to improve it. Well done!

A revert is not a mark of failure, we do it all the time when things are not ready yet or cause too much noise.

@https://pleroma.site/users/kaniini fun fact: big M treats summary as plain text, escaping and preserving html. So if you put your list there, the <li> will show up.

Incidentally I think pleroma has a bug here as well. You can open a tag in the summary and close it in content, which doesn't seem right.
