I've started a little series on #gemini concerning my (highly biased) thoughts on certain computers. I've only written two up so far:
the ux of lego interface panels https://www.designedbycave.co.uk/2020/LEGO-Interface-UX/
Oh. My. I just downloaded the amfora #gemini browser and it's. So. GOOD.
I should probably get around to making a proper gemini site at some point.
"Securely and anonymously share files of any size. A web server is started, making OnionShare accessible as a Tor Onion Service, potentially temporarily or in a stealthy manner, over the Internet. An unguessable address is generated and is shared for the recipient to open in the Tor Browser to download the files. No separate server or third party file-sharing service required. You host the files on your own computer."
There's a GUI, but the CLI is so good, just `onionshare somestuff.bin` and you get a temporary onion service serving a static password protected website with the file made available. By default once the file has been downloaded, everything shuts down.
The iPhone 6 cannot do COVID tracing, because it can't update to iOS 13 which has the feature.
I don't have an iPhone, but I know lots of people still using the 6, it works well. This is a great example of (unintentional) classism from Apple, where poorer people with older phones are at a higher risk of dying, because they can't do COVID tracing.
It's possible that this is a hardware thing, and the iPhone 6 doesn't support the Bluetooth features needed, but afaik this is not the case.
I've sent Apple a support ticket about this, but for now, people like my parents are stuck without a solution.
“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems.
I was wrong.
The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation.
And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”
