At least Janet Yellen didn't keep us in suspense about which major thing she'd get wrong first.
The Ugandan government has continued to block social media sites after partially restoring internet connectivity. Direct Tor connections are working, so you can use Tor Browser to get around this censorship without using a bridge.
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that @PINE64 is releasing a Mobian Community Edition of the #pinephone! This is a major milestone for our project, which started less than a year ago as a way to bring Debian to this

Reminder that I wrote a book for struggling programmers called "The Mediocre Programmer". It's a book about helping folks along on their journey with programming, including advice on finding communities, ranking ourselves (spoiler: it's not helpful), backstage vs. performance, and even the emotions surrounding programming. It's a free eBook released under a Creative Commons license. I hope you'll check it out:
My name is Håkon and I'm a PhD student in computer science. I'm using machine learning to study ecological behavior patterns in farmed salmon and general time series analysis.

Quick question: ages ago I put my #gpg key on a #yubikey and that works well for some time now. But now I have a little problem: Even though I have my yubikey inserted my secret key cannot be read by #gpgtools until I enter "gpg --card-edit" on the terminal. I can just quit card-edit, afterwards the key gets recognized correctly. Any ideas what I can do so my key is working without interaction when the yubikey is inserted? What happens when I open "card-edit"? Boosts welcome!
@JP I've been meaning to setup my PinePhone for a while. I've hosted my own e-mail for years, use Radicale for calendars and contacts, setup a PeerTube instance for my videos (battlepenguin.video) and I have a Matrix->Hangouts Bridge so I can still chat with people who refuse to leave Hangouts. The last thing is moving my Google voice number to Twillio .. once that's done I can delete all my Google cookies forever

@dajbelshaw It's always great when you find a solution that you're happy with & when others reinforce that decision :) I'm still a big fan of self-hosted secure (2FA), encrypted password stores. I do it with BitWarden (the fully #FOSS Rust-based server re-implementation)... it's trivial to step and run for yourself, family, and friends... here's how to do it: https://tech.oeru.org/setting-your-own-bitwarden-password-manager-and-sync-server
