Really proud of this little routine to draw the 9 choices of kanas, and the selection, and the controller state. It's rare that I handle so many things on the stack at once.

Everyonce in a while, I find myself implementing various elements of Plan9's UI into other projects, and doing the legwork makes me realize how every single design decision has a strong technical reason. They made absolutely no concessions by designing something that would lead to a suboptimal implementation.

Minecraft allows one to live out a number of unrealistic fantasies, for example sleeping peacefully through the night & waking up at dawn every morning

Ich muss aufhören Artikel und Kommentare über #cellbroadcast zu lesen.

So viel Unwissen und begrenzte Phantasie in den Kommentaren.

"Was nützt mir eine SMS wenn das Handy nachts ausgeschaltet ist"

1. Es ist keine SMS 🙄
2. Vielleicht hat der Partner/Mitbewohner/Nachbar es aber an und ist so freundlich mal zu klingeln wenn vor $Katastrophe gewarnt wird?

Sirenen + CB ist sicher besser als keine Sirenen und (die nächste?) App die nicht funktioniert.

Firefox may have lost up to 12% of its users in 2021. We're once again in danger of a single browser dominating the web as in the days of IE. What's worse is that Chrome is owned by a glorified advertisement company.

The Internet is just too important for Google to become the de facto gatekeeper.

And the fact that Chrome is open source really doesn't matter here. Google has tight control over the project. Maintaining a fork would require a herculean effort.

The advantages of #CellBroadcasts in short:

✅ reduced bottlenecks due to high efficiency sending
✅ established standard since 1990
✅ relatively cheap
✅ everyone is warned, even short-term tourists
✅ independent from mobile internet
✅ works even if telephony/SMS/internet is overloaded
✅ no apps required

➡️ Warning apps are a useful *extension*, but not the *basis*. [2/2]

any idea on how to upgrade an existing 9front install

Since they changed mercurial for git sysupgrade doesn't work (nor the manual option since I don't have a git repo setuped)

Wie blöde kann man eigentlich noch rumeiern beim Interview über moderne Warn-App vs. alte analoge Sirenentechnik?

Wer erwartet, daß im Katastrophenfall noch flächendeckend TCP/IP verfügbar sei, glaubt auch an die Besiedlung der Marsebenen.

Echter Zivilschutz muß mit minimaler und robuster Technik auskommen. Schickt endlich die Technohipster nach Hause.

Nachdem es Anfang der Woche noch einmal 20 neue deutschsprachige #eBooks in meiner Bibliothek gab, habe ich soeben 50 weitere hochgeschoben. Also, liebe 📚 🐛 🐛 – ich wünsche fröhliches Lesen!

Another short survey:

A friend offered a with and the needed cables for 100 €. Five years ago he wanted 70 € for the same set. Sound works fine, as well as video and probably everything else. There's just some minor scratch on the back.

Should I buy it?

Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.

@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.
