Hi everyone! I'm new here and not so sure someone will ever read what I'm typing right now.

So let's procede with this ...
I'm a MSc student in Chemistry.
At the moment I'm working on my thesis project within the Theoretical Chemistry group of Turin, Italy.

I joined the SDF community one year ago and I update with some (in)consistency my lovely gopherhole.

A few months ago I started taking some pictures after my gf gave me a Liam Wong book. The results are not so bad.

I think this is one of the most hilarious email I have ever read.

"Severity: serious"

I'm desperately searching for a . I've noticed that there are a lot of kits available online. But I have no soldering skills or whatever.

Can someone help me find a pre-assembled lilly58 - or something similar?

I've disappeared for a few days. Finally I tested positive for . Despite my young age (26), I've been sick. Now I'm recovering.
That damn beast made me wasting a lot of time...

It's better to provide a real-world example understand how dumb the EU's argument for #chatcontrol is.

Their argument is basically that they have to implement client-side checks on all the messaging apps to protect children from abuse.

Besides the sheer absurdity of the implementation of client-side checks for *all* the available apps out there, while not reducing people's privacy and not creating a backdoor that malicious actors will be eager to exploit, and besides the macroscopic contradictions in the EU's position (first they called E2E encryption a civic right, then they push for client-side checks on those E2E-encrypted chats), it's appropriate to provide a real-world example.

Most of the domestic abuse doesn't happen online. It happens within the domestic walls.

If we follow the EU's logic, it's therefore appropriate to push everyone with kids in the EU to install surveillance cameras and mics in their homes (you know, to ensure that they don't abuse their kids). Or maybe keep the doors of their houses open so authorities can immediately intervene in case of abuse.

In other words, is it allowed to drastically lower the bar for privacy and security for everyone for the benefit of a minority, without first considering if there are smarter solutions to solve the problems of that minority? Just to name a few: invite parents to pay more attention to what their kids do online, or establish a European emergency line with specialists immediately within reach in case of reports.

I've just updated my with a new . I talk about the admission and the fatigue of these days.

I don't know how things will go, but I know that the people I'm meeting right now are truly exceptional. I am really grateful to have them as travel companions, if only for a little while.

I just discovered the existence of a interface for Mastodon. Its name is and it is available through the main package managers on linux (on Debian: sudo apt install toot).
I believe it is still in an early stage of development but it is fully usable. Unfortunately there are no customization options. However its speed is unbelievable, great job!
