    There will be someone willing to trade these, btw they are giving it in hope that people will trade and this will rise in value. imo not worth the time you'll put in, still not much to do just create 2 paperkeys and signup if you want.

    I don't think a website should mess with how users use textarea, that would be very bad idea. I am sure @Deimos would never implement this kind of thing. If you still want to use emacs keybindings then you can use EXWM (iirc works well) or use eww to read tildes or better create a mode like md4rd is for reddit.

    One of the things that helped me actually commit though was a comment from a dentist. “Nails always grow back, teeth don’t once you wear them down.”

    I wish someone could stop me earlier, both my canines [0] are little short and not straight. I am pretty sure it was because of my nail biting habit.

    It is not a VPN but an HTTP/HTTPS proxy provided by cloudflare, it is subject to Mozilla's privacy policy and not Cloudflare's [0]. Their front page talks about securing connections on public wifi, these days where HTTPS is used everywhere I don't see how this is useful. Moreover its basically cloudflare mitm'ing your connection, I guess like how they provide HTTPS for websites (users -> cloudflare -> server) so everything goes through cloudflare.

    If you still connect to HTTP websites regurarly on public networks (which you shoudn't do) then this might be useful (better get a vpn).

    Keybase sent me an email today stating someone dropped me 'x' amounts of lumens. I guess this is to get more signups (old github/hn accounts are eligible for this thing), they also ask for at least 3 devices or 3 paperkeys. Stellar website thingy is behind cloudflare which asks to fill recaptcha so coudn't get more info on how these lumens can be used besides from transferring to other accounts.

    "To qualify: you must have a Keybase account registered before this announcement OR if you're new to Keybase, you must connect your Keybase account to a GitHub or HackerNews account that was registered before this announcement. This is to prevent bot signups to Keybase."

    imo not worth the time, there can be infinite accounts claming those lumens and so technically you can get 0 lumens for the time put into the keybase app which is not that good to use. Also otherwise why would you use these if the foundation can simply create more coins and devalue the coins you own. They have done drops like these previously too.


    A surprise gift (and a Keybase announcement)

    <redacted> -

    For a while, Keybase has been quietly funded by the non-profit Stellar Development Foundation. Stellar builds the Stellar network, which powers a digital currency that Keybase understands.

    We managed to keep this a secret (somehow!), but today SDF is giving 100 million Lumens, divided equally across everyone who has previously installed Keybase. Your share of the Lumens are waiting for you, encrypted for your private Keybase keys. They were sent by a special bot called @spacedrop, which you can see has a verified proof of keybase.io.

    If you're not interested in the Lumens, you have no action to take, and you won't be bothered by further messages of this sort. If you would like them, just login to your Keybase app to decrypt them. As an added bonus, SDF is giving out 100 million more EVERY month, totaling 2 billion Lumens, and you can choose to keep participating, no strings attached. (There is some fine print such as no individual receiving more than $500 USD worth.

    All made possible by public-key cryptography. Enjoy!

    Amount = <redacted> XLM (approximately $<redacted> USD)
    

    To access these lumens, open your Keybase app or install Keybase.

    Q: Where can I read more about the Stellar giveaway?
    https://keybase.io/airdrop

    Q: Can my friends join?
    Anyone who was not a member of Keybase before September 9, 2019 can still qualify, if they have a GitHub or HackerNews account that was created before September 9, 2019. If this applies to your friends, you can send them to https://keybase.io/airdrop

    What are Stellar Lumens?
    Lumens (XLM) are units of digital currency. They are the native assets of the Stellar network, although Stellar supports other tokens and currencies.

    What are they worth?
    As this email is getting sent, 1 XLM = $0.06 USD (Source: coinmarketcap.com). So far it is the crypto-currency that is the best designed for international transactions. Keybase makes it secure on top of that, as Keybase servers never know your Stellar private keys.

    It's very easy once you've setup a webserver. imo this is easier than buying a domain, setting up certificates, dynamic dns and other stuff.

    I don't know much about other stuff but you can run Gitea and Tor middle relay (configure accordingly) on your pi easily - they use very less memory/cpu when idle also otherwise wouldn't put too much load, I would also setup hidden service to access gitea. You can setup pi-hole to block ads on your devices (dns proxy to block ad networks by not resolving them).
