is it possible to hard code a screen that may or may not be attached in X?

O Maidens in Your Savage Season (Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo) 

Just finished the manga yesterday and am so glad I read it. It brought me right back to those awkward teenage years filled with confusion, fear, and misunderstanding that everyone goes through.

The humour kept things fun but the characters' struggle with feelings and emotions resonated deeply with me. Throwing in the sex and romance themes made it all the more relatable too.

Sonezaki was my favourite character.

@jookia Yeah, this shit be much harder than I thought. Plus, we now know that the APIs don't help much either!

somehow i managed to get to sleep without my head exploding. sometimes i joke about doing anything for stream views, and usually it's trashy things. but i guess this is the logical conclusion of doing anything for money? you just end up being this trashy and pathetic?

i can really tell the difference after my SSRIs have kicked in. going to bed i saw on youtube that steven crowder decided today's scam is to prove that george floyd didn't by having his friends lean on his neck gently in a controlled, indoor, (probably air conditioned) environment. his friend made sure to spread his body weight over crowder's back and lift his knee regularly. so unfortunately we didn't see crowder die on stream.

bitcoin flashback 

i remember in like 2010 or 2011 i was discussing bitcoin and blockchains with my friends and we came to the conclusion that its biggest problem was that the blockchain grows infinitely. even if you ignore all mining, all bandwidth, etc, to just run a 'full node' was infeasible on a mobile device. has this changed? nope.

today i learned with @koz_ross that hard drives are slow pieces of garbage, i can see why cloud storage and concurrent streaming is non-trivial

@kaz How about 'no more techbro/rms/elon musk shit ever'.

OH LOOK OUR FIRST MRAS!

No seriously, they're literally talking about not having equal rights with women because they can't have sexy mags at school.

@koz_ross @kaz as an anime connuoiseur, the aneurysm is part of the experience; to be unable to appreciate it is akin to being unable to appreciate anime itself

signal brains 

or maybe i have it all wrong and it's not even that complicated. signal have always been about mainstreaming strong encryption even if it's not the most secure solution. i can see other developers making the same tradeoff and just betting on SGX

signal brains 

i can only really conclude that one or two things happened here: 1. signal got bored and ran out of GROWTH and wanted a new feature, 2. signal developers believe cryptography alone will solve all our security needs, as long as there's cryptography involved it makes your security chain of trust unbreakable

i'm leaning towards the former? or both?

@jookia this is gonna get broken with incomprehensible fault injection shit as soon as something uses it enough for anyone to bother attacking it

signal, cryptocurrency, tpms 

the thing with intel sgx and tpms and trusted computing or ANY kind of cryptographic thing is that it can look good and make sense on paper, computers can't run paper, they have to run code, and code has bugs and issues. hardware too! intel cpus combine the worst of both worlds by having SGX implemented using unaudited code. why would you even trust that?

signal, cryptocurrency 

like if you had asked me what language would be best to write secure code in, it would be haskell or some other pure functional language with good typing

anyway if you're out of the loop, intel sgx is a bunch of crypto and a centralized system using tpms and trusted computing and other handwavey stuff to 'prove' a program is running 'trusted' code

ok so who's idea is this? its unclear without going through git commits. notable people are jcape and garbageslam? i saw a contribution from isis agora lovecruft which is a WTF. what the fuck is up with this shit? i know signal got aboard SGX a while ago so i guess they're all for this rust sgx garbage fire, maybe that's the connection

signal, cryptocurrency 

you mean to tell me your entire currency is backed by nodes running intel sgx?

okay well, what about avoiding losing my keys?

"Instead, Fog makes heavy use of SGX enclaves and Oblivious RAM data structures to serve such queries privately and without compromising scalability. Although such use of SGX may create potential operational challenges, the MobileCoin system has been carefully designed to navigate these challenges."

oh they put your keys in SGX too

"Transactions are prepared by the user on their local computer or mobile device, and submitted to a secure enclave running on a validator node of their choice. The validator node checks the transaction and, assuming it believes the transaction is valid, shares it with other nodes in the network. The transaction is passed only to peer secure enclaves that can establish via remote attestation that they are running unmodified software on an authentic Intel processor." uh

it boasts a bunch of features on the features page that heavily indicate it's not an actual cryptocurrency since it doesn't waste electricity and you can't lose your keys, two parts of the libertarian philosophy. let's look at this genius idea in depth

signal is pushing a cryptocurrency now? signal.org/blog/help-us-test-p

ok, so which one? ... mobilecoin? the fuck is a mobilecoin? github.com/mobilecoinfoundatio it says its a prototype?

mobilecoin.com/ there's no info about who develops mobilecoin?
