  1. Is LiberaPay still trying to make recipients sit out the 30d chargeback period before they get money?

    • Star vs The Forces of Evil had its final episode and it was a huge convolution of mediocrity and not satisfying plot points. I loved the series, especially in the beginning but the last season was part really cool and part a kiwi show. With the last episode in mind most was irrelevant.

      • TIL how most adults deal with finances in a 4 step program

        1 : Never check bank balance
        2: Pretend everything is fine
        3: Live in constant state of fear
        4: Repeat

        I like my own model better. ( run monthly )
        10 : if income it bigger than expenses, go to end
        20 : if expences are bigger than income try to fix it, go to end

            • Yes, a bizarre !GNUsocial knockoff. Because Mastodon was the original federated social implementation.

              Good bye, and thanks for all the fish.

              • @bob @elizafox Even if they aren't, if they are a virtuous person, the enemies of this organization will have a single point to attack, in attempting to discredit the organization.  Which is exactly what happened with Assange, though I suspect there's a lot of truth to the allegations around him.  An org like Wikileaks having a central leader or head like Assange is a single point of failure.

                • I don't see me getting mad. However, I'm afraid you haven't actually answered me, just ranted. You still haven't mentioned a single !xmpp client by name, unfortunately.

                  Also, you said you thought we should make a "federated discord". But then you complain about features of federation as if they were downsides (client versatility, adaptability for various disabilities etc.). You claim centralised antifeatures as something positive.

                  And you still haven't mentioned a single " obnoxious" !xmpp client. Just that they're all horrible. Despite single-click clients that Just Work(tm) are all over the place. Those are web based of course and work in the field all around us. And are federated, free and open source software. !fs

                  Discord works for people who don't care about software freedom, privacy and security.

                                • I'm extremely frustrated. I have to dumb down my VR training program a lot more than I already have. I'm told that people shouldn't be allowed to drop grabbed items. I mean WTF! They take out all the fun of flinging items around. Also all the dynamic things I've built in should be gone. "Only activate the items that are immediately needed at the moment of the procedure!".

                                  • @drinkingpony Simple: I program a program such that people can gain knowledge of a procedure with this program. They interact (although very crudely) with the program and will be guided at each step of the procedure with a narrated text and helpful highlighting of objects. A VR training has the advantage that it can be trained everywhere (where VR headsets are available) and it doesn't disturb the production line. In the case of the robot arm entering the working area of the robot arm shuts it off completely and the production halts.
                                    Why is the industry worse: They don't know what they want and if they say what they want it's usually worse. HEY LET'S GAMIFY IT! >Just a simple highscore list sorted by completion time in its "hardest" difficulty (no guidance with highlighted objects or narration). But what kills me is that they want to use the hard coded steps from the guided difficulties instead of offering more interaction freedom (all objects can be picked up and dropped everywhere)

                                  • @adiwan Oh, ehh. That sounds a lot like people who never even held a controller and make them design their own controller. That or play Sekiro, not sure which is the more hilarious thing to imagine.

                                    I am afraid that without going into any details I can not imagine how hard it is to deliver on such a weird thing.

                                    Though I would have probably given up a long time ago and instead just tried to make a miniature replica and let people 'do the thing' on that thing.

                                    Or... maybe... try to use this thing somehow ? http://rainbowdash.net/url/874441

                                    • @purplehippo Meh he has some very backwards beliefs about something but to my knowledge he never really put it in his works.  Course for some people they need the things they enjoy to be ideologically pure or whatever so they get catty about it.  You know, it's been so long since the last time people were assembling around that maypole of controversy that I honestly forget what exactly the questionable beliefs were, but I do remember that I kinda agreed that they were a bit batcave.  But they were also personal and he wasnt getting in my face so I didnt really care.

                                            • "An Israeli firm accused of supplying tools for spying on human-rights activists and journalists now faces claims that its technology can use a security hole in WhatsApp, the messaging app used by 1.5 billion people, to break into the digital communications of iPhone and Android phone users (Warning: source may be paywalled; alternative source). Security researchers said they had found so-called spyware -- designed to take advantage of the WhatsApp flaw -- that bears the characteristics of technology from the company, the NSO Group."

                                              WhatsApp uses code which cannot be independently audited, therefore, it should be considered 100% insecure.
